At PlayCroco, we deal with online pokies of many different varieties. Some are 3-reel pokies while others offer variable paylines.

The answer to the question who makes pokies or who invented pokies really depends on what type of pokies you are talking about…

At PlayCroco, we deal with online pokies of many different varieties. Some are 3-reel pokies while others offer variable paylines. We even have speciality titles that forgo the tradition “slot and pokie” layout in favour of a design that’s video game-like!

On a whole though, all of our pokies are 100% online. That means they can only be accessed via your desktop browser or mobile phone. This means that all of our pokies are developed online, but there’s much more to the story than that.

Land-based pokies obviously have different developers. There are also more components involved in a land-based machine, given that you’re dealing with a physical device.

Of course, our mascot Croco prefers the online variety, but in this article titled “Who makes Pokies?”, we’ll discuss both online and land-based slots. Discover once and for all the interesting backstory behind the pokies that you love and get ready to gobble down some seriously cool info. This is where you learn all about who makes pokies! Also, if you're curious enough... don't forget to read our article about how do pokies work!

Land-based versus online 

Before we submerge ourselves in the story of who makes pokies, we’ll first talk about the difference between online slots and their land-based counterparts.

Land-based slots 🎰

Our response to the question “who makes pokies?” is based on whether or not the pokie in question is land-based or online. Land-based slots, also known as one-armed bandits, are built by a number of international gaming companies.

Aristocrat gambling is the biggest one in Australia and the Land of PlayCroco, and one of the oldest slot machine manufacturers in the world. It consistently ranks in the top 10 when it comes to the most iconic companies and as such it has a fantastic reputation in pubs, clubs and bars throughout the country.

They handle every step of the manufacturing process. From the creation of parts to the assembly and final construction of the machine right up until it’s been programmed. In previous decades, levers were the primary mechanism used to activate a pokie machine.

Nowadays though, these levers have been replaced by random number generators (which we’ve talked about in this article), buttons and touch screens. Deposits can also now be made with everything from cryptocurrency to pre-paid vouchers instead of coins and cash.

So if anyone ever asks you who makes pokies in Australia, or more specifically, who makes land-based pokies, you can give them a snappy answer and simply reply – Aristocrat!


Online pokies 📱

On the other side of the coin we have online pokies. Which, with the rise of internet gaming and mobile devices, have brought all the thrills, excitement and the fun of playing pokies into our homes (or onto the sandbanks if you’re a Croco).

Now, developers such as the esteemed SpinLogic (formerly RealTime Gaming), have been able to take the original pokie machine concept and give it an upgrade. Online pokies now feel more like video games than their land-based equivalents, which in turn ensures they have almost endless playability!

Combine these technological advancements with the fact that you can win bigger jackpots on online pokies, thanks to progressive titles that are linked with other machines, and the answer to the question “who makes pokies?” can only be SpinLogic.

If you’re still curious as to who makes pokies and want to know why we’ve come to the conclusion that there’s no better software developer than SpinLogic, check out the next section of this blog article below.
