Online Pokies Launched in November 2015

Date Added: November 12, 2015

Playtech launched a new branded online pokie called Top Gun and Microgaming launched the new Basketball Star pokie and the new Lucky Twins pokie. All three of these new online pokies are now available in the real money mode and in the free play demo mode at some of our top-rated kiwi online casinos.

The new Playtech pokie first arrived in casinos on Wednesday 11th November, 2015, and the two new Microgaming pokies both arrived in casinos on Wednesday 4th November. These games are all now available across multiple platforms (Flash, download and mobile platforms) and this means that players from New Zealand can experience these new games either from their Windows operating desktop or laptop computer, or from their smartphone or tablet device.

“This iconic movie was the ideal choice for a premium branded game and is sure to be a hit for all our casino licensees and their players across all channels and devices, delivering, as we do with every title and every product, the ultimate gaming experience,” said the Playtech COO, Shimon Akad. This exciting new pokie has 5 reels and 243 different ways to win per spin and it has a couple of great special features and bonus rounds for you to hopefully win big prizes from.

The Wild Symbol is the Top Gun Logo and the Scatter Symbol is the F-14 Jet. The main Bonus Round is a Free Spins Bonus known as the Danger Zone Free Games Bonus and this will instantly trigger when three or more of the F-14 Scatter Symbols land in any position across the reels. Also keep an eye out for the Dogfight Wild Feature which can trigger during normal play and during the Free Spins Bonus. This can add up to as many as 15 Wild Symbols onto the reels.

The other new pokies which arrived in November 2015, Basketball Star and Lucky Twins, also both arrived on multiple platforms. You can unlock achievements on the new Lucky Twins pokie, it has 5 reels and 9 winning paylines, but it doesn’t really have any special features or bonus games for you to enjoy. In contrast, the new Basketball Star pokie is far more action-packed.

The new Basketball Star pokie from Microgaming, just like the new Top Gun pokie from Playtech, also has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin. “This month we’re adding to the collection of sporting games we offer with Basketball Star. Packing the excitement of a major league final, we’re confident the game will be a crowd-pleaser,” said the Head of Casino Games at Microgaming, Mike Hebden.

“Plus its simultaneous release ensures players are able to enjoy the game no matter their preferred playing device, adding to the industry’s biggest portfolio of mobile games available to our operators,” added Hebden. We obtained these exact words from a recent Microgaming press release.

This new pokie has Rolling Reels™, Scatter Symbols, Wild Symbols, Stacked Wild Symbols, a Wild Shot Feature and a Free Spins Bonus with Increasing Multiplier. You can always find the latest Playtech pokies over at sites like, Omni Casino and Mansion Casino and the latest Microgaming pokies can always be found over at sites like Royal Vegas Casino, Jackpot City Casino, Casino Mate and Crazy Vegas Casino.
