Online Pokies; as opposed to playing at the Casino or Pub

Aussies and Kiwis want to be playing pokies! In some cases a lot, at times a little. Either casually inside the pub or regularly at the casino, it’s common pass time of both nations. So, which are the better to play? Well, if you are out and about with your mates and pub pokies are around, than those ones may the ideal choice for you at that particular moment While playing at the pub makes sense in that situation, you should consider the fundamental picture… If you play in a business they’ve got very large running overhead costs to maintain their business and they’ve got to move that expense on to the consumer – you.

But what about all the friends and family members back home that didn’t get to share the exhilarating experience of gambling (and winning) with you? What are you going to do for them? Before you recoil at the idea of having to actually share your winnings with them, fear not, because that’s not what’s being suggested here.

A World of Fun at Your Fingertips

Not everyone plays online games with the intent of making money or beating their opponents.  For me (and many others) online gaming is a great chance to socialise online and connect with other likeminded people. If there is a competition element to it, I can get immersed and my involvement releases all the happy brain chemicals allowing me to de-stress as well as having fun.

Meeting Friends Online I do love online games and enjoy the convenience of being able to play 24/7 from the comfort of my own home.  However the game itself is not the only reason I jump into my online gaming worlds every day.  I work from home and this can be a very isolating daily existence.  I have the security of...

These are concepts you should familiarize yourself with before you spend any time with slot games.   RNG (or “random number generator”) is exactly what it sounds like – the random numbers coughed up by the computer behind the slots.
