A Look Back at Some of 2016’s Best Pokies

Australian players were treated to lots of new online pokies throughout 2016. Microgaming continued to release at least one or two new pokies every month without fail and it seemed as though these new pokies just kept on getting better and better as we moved further into 2016. The new year got off to a flying start when Microgaming launched the new Multi-Player Mermaids Millions pokie back in January.

We were then treated to games like Bikini Party, Dragon Dance, SunTide, Wild Orient, Win Sum Dim Sum, Bar Bar Black Sheep, Pretty Kitty, Reel Spinner, Karaoke Party, Lost Vegas, Electric Diva and Ninja Magic. Three of the best online pokies that Microgaming launched in 2016 included Jungle Jim – El Dorado (September 7th), Dragonz (November 2nd) and Tarzan (December 1st).

The new Jungle Jim – El Dorado pokie has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines with Rolling Reels and a Multiplier Trail which can boost consecutive line wins by up to 5X during normal play and up to 15X during the Free Spins Bonus. The innovative new Dragonz pokie has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin and when the Free Spins Bonus triggers on this game you will eventually get to choose between four different Free Spins Bonus Rounds, each of which comes with its own unique special feature.

For example all free spins bonus games come with 10 Free Spins, but if you choose the dragon known as ‘Flint’, Flaming Wilds will be active during the bonus round. If you choose the dragon ‘Switch’, Stashed Wilds are active during the bonus. Frosty Wilds are active if you choose ‘Frost’ and Winning Wilds are active if you choose ‘Gobble’.

Tarzan also has an exciting Free Spins Bonus Round to win prizes from, but there are also lots of other fun ways to win prizes on this game. For example when three or more Bonus Symbols show up you will be taken away from the reels and you will be awarded one free spin of the bonus wheel. Here it’s possible to win a Free Spins Bonus with Growing Wilds and Rolling Reels or a second screen picking bonus called the Pick-A-Potamus Bonus. You can also win a coin prize or a massive fixed coin jackpot worth up to 1,000x times your total bet.

If you want to play on the new Tarzan pokie, on the new Dragonz pokie, on the new Jungle Jim pokie (or on any of the other new online pokies that arrived in 2016), head over to one of our top-rated Microgaming casinos today. You can play on these games in the real money mode or in the free play mode and they are all available on desktop and on mobile.
