Big Red

Welcome to another page dedicated to the ever popular and always exciting Aristocrat Pokies that line pubs and clubs from Tasmania to the Top End – and with Aristocrat Pokies making up at least 90% of the top ten rated Pokies and slot machines in this country it is no surprise that our top ten is dedicated to Aristocrat Gaming and the impressive array of electronic gaming devices, slot machines and pokies they seem to keep producing year after year. Join us as we count down the top ten – in no particular order because you punters keep changing your bloody mind so often it means the list is constantly changing – and you may even argue that it is wrong, I mean I personally think Zorro is an awesome Aristocrat Pokies game but it isn’t even on the list?! Anyway, let’s stop me waffling on now and check out some of the Aristocrat games that we like to get familiar with each and every weekend.

Big Red Pokies – Australia’s Favourite $1 Pokie

Big Red Pokie – Because Skippy is so Last Century

It does not get more Australian than the aptly named ‘Big Red’ from Aristocrat leisure with the entire theme centred around our National emblem and patriotic symbol – the kangaroo. But not just any Kangaroo – this is the daddy of them all, the big fella, the boss man. Big Red himself.

What’s Up Skip? Who Gives a Shit

Made by Aristocrat – who are the gaming company behind at least 9 of the top ten Best Australian Pokies have given this Australian Pokie a real true blue Aussie feel, with all our local animals making an appearance on one of the 5 reels on offer. And unlike some of the more modern million line payout pokies and modern slot games that seem to offer more confusion than hope, the classic setup and tempo of the Big Red pokies is one that has been proven time and time again to be the most enjoyable for players of all ages and skill levels.
The 5 lines payout over 3 reels makes payouts rarer but easier to read and learn. The payouts when they do come however are as big as the machine is red – so don’t be diswayed by the fact it is a $1 minimum bet pokie machine

Dead set, if this Pokie Machine was any more Australian it would have Alf inside yelling “Stone the Flaming Crows” and “Bloody Gallahs” every time you didn’t win…. Actually that’s not a bad idea for a new pokie 😉 The Alf – Collect 3 or more Flamin’ Gallahs to win up to 25 free games…. Bonus features including Stoning Crows and Filling the [Summer] Bay for a chance at the Jackpot (Progressive or otherwise).

What do you think about that idea Ray Meagher?

The Crocodile and the Boar are the highest paying symbols; the crocodile pays 1250x for landing 5 of a kind while the boar pays 1000x for landing 5 of a kind.
