A little knowledge goes a long way when you play pokies online, which is why we’re sharing some basic terminology with you.

  • Payline: When symbols align along an active payline in a specific pattern across the reels, it will result in a winning outcome of a spin.
  • 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.


New Zealand’s online pokies 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.
  • 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 pokies grid, and 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: Pokies machines 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.
