Trying To Hit It Big With a Small Deposit

August 29, 2015

You might not know this, but all content on this site is been by people who actually play pokies on a fairly consistent basis. Today we will take You on a journey that I personally experience in the last 48 hours. Just like every other punter of pokie machines, I’m also depositing small amounts of money with hopes of “running it up”. This will be a short story of how I did while doing exactly that.

So I started out by making a deposit of $200 to CasinoRoom, which is one of my favorite sites to play pokies at. Their selection of games is quite impressive, with titles from NetEnt, MicroGaming, Yggdrasil Gaming, NYX Interactive and more.

Punting Dead Or Alive

Even though “DOA” is far from a new online pokie, I discovered it only a few months ago thanks to a friend who loves playing it. It’s one of the craziest, most volatile games I have ever seen or played in my 5+ year playing career.

The key to winning big playing Dead or Alive is the free spins feature, which is triggered anytime 3 or more scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Once You manage to get these, You’ll be awarded with 12 free rounds. If a wild symbol appears during these it will remain it its position throughout the whole feature. On top of that, if You get a wild to appear on every reel, five extra spins are awarded.

About 10 minutes in my session, I manage to trigger the free rounds and actually trigger the extra 5 spins too. I got somewhat unlucky with the position of the wilds, as they did not for a wild-line. If that would of had happened, I might end winning anywhere between $3,000 to $7,500. Below is a screenshot of the wilds during free spins.

Now, the friend who recommended that I give this game a try, did so for a good reason. Below You’ll see a screenshot of his massive win while betting exactly the same amount I did.

Moving On To Twin Spin

This is one of my favorite pokies of all time and one that might be just as volatile as Dead or Alive. The name Twin Spin comes from a unique feature of this game. Every time You make a spin, two reels are spun and stopped simultaneously. If that is not exciting enough, the “Twin Reel” feature can spin and stop up to all 5 reels at the same time.

The key to winning big here is to get a full screen, or as close as possible, with matching symbols. They don’t have to be of highest value, as long as they are matching ones. Below You can see a big gamble I made – $10 wager while having a bankroll of something like $250. Needless to say that it paid off, as I scooped $2,592!

Winning On Mobile

Many people are curious about mobile pokies and whether the RTP’s are similar to desktop ones, when played for real money. Can You actually win big playing these games? The answer is yes, absolutely! Below You will see a screenshot sent in by one of my friends.

If You are looking for the best mobile pokies I would certainly suggest that You try games created by Net Entertainment. Best casino I know of to try these is Casino Room where new players receive a $600 welcome package as well as 50 free spins on Starburst – another outstanding pokie from NetEnt. Of course, You will also be able to open an account in Your preferred currency there, be it $AUD, $NZD or the US Dollars.
