Want proof?

Here’s our latest article about the many varieties of casino games on offer at our online casino. In it you get to learn all about our selection of titles, what they are and why you should give them a try!


Online pokies and slot machines 🎰

Put simply… online pokies (or slots as they’re called outside of OZ and NZ) are famous in the world of online casinos!

They are by far our most popular casino games out of the many different types available. You might even say that they’re the first choice for both new and established players!

At PlayCroco online casino, we have over 300 online pokies for you to play. These pokies come in all shapes and sizes… but there’s one thing that they have in common – they’re all of the highest quality.

We’re talkin’ the best graphics, the best gameplay and the best bonus rounds. Why? Because at PlayCroco we only host the top online pokies in order to give you the best entertainment and the most impressive payouts possible!


How do online pokies work? 🔩

Online pokies work in the same way that land-based machines work.

You select your wager amount, which determines how many paylines are active. You then hit the spin button in order to trigger a bonus round or a jackpot win in order to score real cash. However, you can also play for free!

Essentially, they’re exactly the same as their land-based counterparts in almost every way… except that you can carry hundreds around in your pocket at the same time.


Why should I play  online pokies? 💰

Simply put… online pokies are incredibly fun to play.

They also don’t require any skill. Just set your bet amount and watch those reels spin. This makes them somewhat relaxing compared to other casino games, since you can more or less switch off mentally and still win.

Another benefit to playing online pokies is that there are many different styles to choose from. You could try an old school online pokie inspired by the fruit machines of yesteryear. Or you could play an online pokie that’s themed, which means it’s based on a popular movie, TV show, comedy act or musician.

Progressive online pokies 🤑

Another different type of real money casino game at PlayCroco is the progressive.

Also known as a progressive slot or a progressive jackpot pokie, progressives are pokies or slots with a jackpot that continues to increase with every non-winning spin up until the jackpot is triggered…

Insanely profitable and highly rewarding, progressive jackpots offer the biggest payout prize out of all the varieties of online pokies at the best online casino: PlayCroco! This makes them highly sought after amongst both new-to-PlayCroco punters and our scalier members!


How do progressive online pokies work? ⚙️

As we just said… progressive pokies have a jackpot prize that gets bigger by a certain percentage with every spin!

Once the jackpot goes off, a lump sum is immediately paid out to the winner and the prize is reset to a predetermined level. This cycle then repeats itself until another punter takes top prize.

The trick here though is that you need to bet the max amount if you want to give yourself a decent chance of winning that major jackpot, otherwise you might as well just play a standard pokie or slot.


Why should I play progressive online pokies?

We probably don’t have to spell this out for you, but the big advantage to playing progressive jackpot pokies is that they can literally make you an instant millionaire.

Of course… they’re also really good fun and rewarding in other ways. But the fact that you can win tens of thousands (if not millions) of real money by triggering the jackpot is a big drawcard. Just remember to bet the max amount and make use of the highly convenient autoplay button when possible.

Roulette 🤑

Everyone has seen a roulette table either in person or on a movie or TV show.

The reason being that roulette is ubiquitous in the world of both land-based and online casinos because it’s easy to play, easy to win on and easy to love!

Roulette conjures up images of suave blokes and sultry sheilas standing around a casino table as they try to pick a winner on this wonderful wheel of big wins. As such, it’s one of the most played types of casino games at PlayCroco…


How to play roulette? 🛠️

There are a couple of different variations of roulette, such as American and European. For the sake of this article though, we’ll give you a condensed rundown as to how one wins in a game of roulette.

Essentially, the aim of the game is to place your chips on the number that you think the little white will land on in the roulette wheel. A typical round consists of players placing their bets on the table. The dealer then spins the wheel one way while spinning the white ball in the opposite direction. A winner or winners are then determined based on whether the white ball lands on your number!


Why should I play roulette? 

Roulette is a game for those who love the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas… but don’t like having to fly halfway around the world in order to play it.

It’s also got a relatively low bar in terms of entry. This means that you can still play it pretty effectively while on the go or when you’re in the mood to chill. In this sense it’s one of the more low-key types of casino games at PlayCroco, but this absolutely does not diminish its enjoyment factor.

Video poker 😎

Like nearly all of the different types of online casino games at PlayCroco, video poker is as close to the real thing as possible…

Your odds of winning, the strategies that you need to employ and even the feel of video poker is all scarily similar to land-based poker games – this really does make a huge difference if you’re looking to capture a high stakes poker atmosphere!

So if you already know how to play poker and you’re familiar with how to win, video poker isn’t all that difficult to wrap your head around. We’re big fans of video poker at PlayCroco, purely because we can flex our problem-solving muscles without even leaving the house!


How does poker work? 😜

There are heaps of video poker variants, but when you strip it all back… the simplest form is five-card draw. Discover 10 basic tips to start playing poker.

How it works is that you’re dealt a five-card hand. You then get a chance to hang onto the cards that you want to keep whilst discarding the ones you don’t like and receiving replacements. This will be your final hand. These are the next steps you need to take: 

  1. Top up your PlayCroco account in the cashier
  2. Place your video poker bet
  3. Press the deal button to receive your poker hand
  4. Discard cards that aren’t useful (up to five can be dropped)
  5. Get your replacements
  6. Play your poker hand
  7. All winnings are paid out according to the paytable

Unlike some of our other casino games, video poker will actually challenge you. This means that you need to use your skills in order to beat the house!

There are strategies to learn, techniques to master and various different approaches that you can take. But on some level, it still somewhat resembles slots, what with the video screen and buttons. For this reason, it’s relatively easy to pick up… even if you’re new to the world of online casinos. Like we said earlier, there are also a bunch of video poker variants!

Blackjack 👔

It’s the most widely played online casino table game in the world.

It pits player against dealer in a game of chance. Most of all though… it’s a walk in the park to learn. Croco loves a good game of blackjack with his mates down by Lake Croco, but he also loves playing it online at our casino.

In addition to being easy to learn, blackjack can also be played on the cheap. Unlike roulette or craps, blackjack is a game for the people. As such, you can wager a little bit and win a little bit but still have heaps of fun. Here’s how it works!


How to play Blackjack? 💸

Blackjack uses regular cards with all suits ignored. The only thing you need to pay attention to is a card’s point value, which is the card number on numbered cards, 10 on face cards and either 1 or 11 on aces.

You begin with two cards initially. You can then take additional cards or stand on your current total! If you go past 21, you will go bust. The goal is to get as close to this or land on 21 in order to beat the dealer. If they get a higher total though, then you lose.

As we said before, you play against the dealer and not the other punters. There are of course other details and nuances to the game, but for now that’s all you need to know.


Why should I play Blackjack? 

There are so many reasons why you should play blackjack.

The first is that like video poker and slots, it’s an easy game to play. The second is that blackjack is a game of skill… but a game that can still be mastered. We’ve even created blog articles about blackjack before, but there’s a whole heap of other great info and videos online that you can read up on.

Specialty casino games 🎰

Speciality titles are titles that are considered online slots or pokies but don’t actually adhere to any of their gameplay principles.

For example: Banana Jones is a popular speciality title that gets a lot of play time at our online casino. Unlike other pokies though, it doesn’t have any reels, nor does it boast typical bonus rounds. Like most speciality titles but, it has a storyline and some pretty neat features.


How do specialty casino games work?

How a speciality title works depends on the speciality title in question since they’re all different. To prove this point, the aforementioned Banana Jones plays like a digital version of snakes and ladders, in that you must move the main characters towards a final destination in order to claim payouts.

Of course, that’s just one example. Another title called Cubee takes you on a time travelling journey through different eras, while Fish Catch is like a shoot ‘em up style pokie. So to answer the question as to how these types of casino games works, it really comes down to the individual game.


Why should I play specialty casino games?

One word: fun!

Speciality games may not have the biggest payouts, nor boast the best bonus rounds. What they lack in prizes though they make up for in sheer fun. They’re entertaining and original and they add something extra to your online betting experience!

Don’t believe an online pokie can get any better? Give one of our speciality titles a crack today. We guarantee that you’ll love it!
