The online pokies market is so saturated with options these day it is often hard to know which slots are hot and which are not. It can be time-consuming sifting through sites’ library of online pokies before you find one that is fun and seems to bring you a bit of luck. So for those of you who are new to this online pokie caper, here are my top five most fun pokies and another five that just missed the cut.
Online casinos with the funnest slot games
Real money slots that are fun to play
When playing at an online casino, there is absolutely no shortage of fun and exciting games to choose from. In this article we’ve detailed some of our favourite online pokies known for their fun features, but the best way to find a game you find most fun is to dive right in and start sampling games for free at any of our recommended casinos in the table above.

South Park: Reel Chaos
This game manages to combine the fun of South Park and having a punt perfectly to create one of the most exciting online pokie experiences going around. This Net Entertainment game is a five-reel, 20-pay line pokie that has wild symbols. You can play as little as $0.20 per spin and as much as $200, so the game caters for beginners to cashed-up high rollers.
Reel Chaos boasts four – that’s right, four – randomly triggered features during any paid game as well as an epic bonus spins free game that can be triggered with any three Mintberry Crunch symbols appearing on reels one, three and five.
I don’t know if I just have been lucky every time I play this game but I always seem to have a big win. The graphics and random bonuses ensure you are always entertained and having fun.
Another NetEntertainment-produced game, WishMaster is a five-reel, 20-pay line online pokie that has a minimum bet of $0.20 and a maximum bet of $100.
WishMaster strays from the norm in that it doesn’t technically have a free spins bonus. Instead, NetEnt has devised a clever and original bonus formula for WishMaster. Each time you spin a scattered lantern on a scroll symbol one of seven possible features is triggered for your next 10 paid spins. You can have up to three features active at any given time and every consecutive scatter adds another five spins that the features are active.
The available features are two extra wild symbols (one turns the pink bat wild the other turns the orange cat wild), a wild reel, expanding wilds, multiplier x2 or x3 and random wilds.
Jack Hammer 2
This sequel to the original Jack Hammer online slot is a step above most. This NetEnt game is a five-reel, 99-pay line pokie with a minimum bet of $0.50 and a maximum of $250.
Jack Hammer 2 is another game that qualifies as awesome thanks to its uniqueness and originality. Instead of each reel spinning as one, each symbol spins independently of the others.
Every win of three or more symbols on an active payline kicks off the “Sticky Win” re-spin. The winning symbols “stick” in place while a re-spin of every other symbol occurs, if any more winning symbols spin up, then they are held in place for another re-spin until no new winning symbols occur. This feature brings the potential for big wins.
The free spins feature also has a randomly appearing wild symbol to help you along as well as doubling all wins.
The Dark Knight
This Microgaming-produced spin-off of the Christopher Nolan-directed masterpiece is a five-reel, 243-pay line pokie connected to the Mega Moolah-linked progressive jackpot. You can bet as little as $0.30 up to $6 per spin.
Batman and the Joker appear randomly throughout the game to award one of five features: wild free spin, wild reels, wild shoot, multiplier or instant prize.
Character symbol wins show brief clips from the Dark Knight movie itself which is a fun touch, and stacked wild symbols offer the chance at big wins.
A free games feature is triggered when any three or more scattered Joker graffiti symbols appear; 15 free games beginning at x2 multiplier and capped at x5 offers the possibility for big cash rewards.
Unfortunately, The Dark Knight pokies game was pulled from the online gambling market in 2017 after its license expired, so while we can no longer play this game, it will go down in history as one of the most popular online slots of all time.
Game of Thrones
Even if this game was a dud, it was always going to be one of my top five. Thankfully Microgaming has done a great job converting the hit HBO TV show into a stunning online slot as a five-reel, 243-pay line pokie with a minimum bet of $0.30 and a max of $30 per spin.
The regular Game of Thrones game features crests of the Baratheon, Lannister, Stark and Targaryen families and the Iron Throne is the scatter symbol that triggers the free games feature. Unlike with most games on the market any two Iron Throne symbols activates a scatter bonus that can award up to 100x. Any three or more Iron Throne symbols triggers the free games feature. You can choose between four free game options: eight, 10, 14 or 18 free games with a x5, x4, x3 or x2 multiplier and stacked symbols.
