  • Progressive Pokies: With their ever-growing progressive jackpots, these online pokies in NZ have the power to turn ordinary spins into extraordinary fortunes.
  • Must Win Jackpots Pokies: When you see a lightning bolt icon next to a pokies game, it means that it has a jackpot feature – in fact, one of two that must be paid out once or multiple times per day.


And the best part? You can enjoy all of these, and more, when you play online pokies for real money right here at Lucky Nugget.


Mute/Unmute Must Win Jackpots


Striking gold is the name of the game at Lucky Nugget. And with its authentic in-house Must Win Jackpots, this seems to be a real prospect. Better yet, you don’t need a map to locate this phenomenon. Simply be on the lookout for pokies displaying a lightning bolt icon.


Each of these pokies titles offer two types of exclusive jackpots. First up is the Rapid jackpot, which can be won multiple times per day, resetting after each win. Second up is the bigger Daily jackpot, which as the name suggests, can be won once per day. 


Some of the popular Must Win Jackpots titles include:


  • Assassin Moon: All roads lead to the special HyperHold™ feature in this game.
  • Thunderstruck II: The legends come alive on the screen, with a new element added.
  • The Bounty: Perfect for Lucky Nugget players, with a Wild West theme – is the town big enough?
  • Break da Bank Again: Step inside the vault to discover exciting features.
  • Arena of Gold: Gladiators, gold and gorgeous graphics; let the battle begin!


Online pokies in New Zealand are packed with in-game features. Knowing which ones you like, will help you choose what to play next.


  • Free Spins: These extra spins are awarded when certain symbols land on the reels, allowing you to spin the reels a certain number of times without wagering your own money.
  • Multipliers: This feature multiplies your bet and win potential. It can appear in various formats such as Base Game Multipliers, Free Spins Multipliers and Increasing Multipliers.
  • Wild: This symbol will usually take the place, or substitute, for other symbols to complete possible winning combinations.
  • Scatter: No need for a payline when these symbols land on the reels of the online pokies game you’re playing – they can literally appear anywhere on the reels and, in most case, 3 or more will activate a special feature.
  • Jackpot Features: Predetermined winning symbol combinations will award you with a jackpot win.
  • MegaWays™: These way wins award you for winning left-to-right combinations of adjacent symbols.
  • Rolling Reels™: Once a winning symbol combination is formed, it will disappear from the online pokies grid, and be replaced by new icons, leaving room for even more potential wins to form.
  • Expanding Wilds: Unlike single substituting Wild symbols, these expand over the length of a reel – top to bottom – creating more opportunities for winning combinations. 
  • 243 (or more) Ways to Win: Some of the top online pokies with this feature don’t offer traditional paylines, but instead have a more flexible pattern system where matching, adjacent symbols, appearing from left to right, could result in a win.

  • Bet: This refers to the amount of money a player wagers on a single spin of the reels.
  • Coin Size: The value of each virtual coin used to place bets on the game.
  • Paytable: Located within the online pokies game you’re playing, it will show the potential winning combinations and their corresponding payouts for the game.
  • Payout: Different combinations of symbols result in different payouts, which can be viewed within each online pokies game’s paytable.
  • Payout Percentage: All casino pokies online have their own estimated return to player (RTP) payout rate, ranging between 94% and 96%, which can be viewed.
  • RNG (Random Number Generator): This computer-based system ensures that payline sequences in online pokies are selected at random. The result of a spin is therefore not only unpredictable but also fair.
