On September 30 Richmond beat Adelaide Crows at the Melbourne Cricket Club to take 2017 title in the Aussie Rules championship. In this exclusively Australian form of football, two teams of eighteen players compete on an oval-shaped field. So whether you are celebrating the win or drowning your sorrows, you can enjoy a video pokie based on this sport called Aussie Rules. It is from the portfolio of the online casino games supplier Rival Gaming.
Aussie Rules is a video pokie with the standard structure of five reels and three rows with 15 selectable paylines. For the best returns you should play with all paylines enabled. Rival Gaming pokies are known for their animated introductory clips and the one in Aussie Rules takes you through serious football action. The high paying symbols are player, boots and whistle. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons. All payouts begin from combinations of three symbols appearing from left to right.
The jackpot symbol has been designated as jersey. It starts paying from a combination of two symbols and the payout for five symbols on an active payline is 500 coins. The umpire is the wild symbol. As usual it substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter symbol. It also awards the highest line payouts also starting from a combination of two symbols. The payout for five symbols is 5000 times the line bet. Looking at the line payouts, you can expect high variance in Aussie Rules online pokie. You will usually have to persevere in order to hot the big wins.
Three or more water bottle symbols appearing scattered on the reels trigger free spins with tripled payouts. Three water bottle symbols trigger 10 free spins; four water bottle symbols trigger 20 free spins and five water bottle symbols trigger a massive 100 free spins. Free spins can be retriggered during the feature by getting three or more scatter symbols. Three or more football symbols anywhere on the reels trigger the Goal Kick bonus game played on the second screen. You click the “Kick” button to kick the ball between the goal posts and earn bonuses.
Aussie Rules can be played at Rival Gaming powered Australian online casinos like Joe Fortune Casino and Ignition Casino. There are many other sports themed pokies at these online casinos. These include Heavyweight Gold, Pigskin Payout, Bowled Over and Global Cup Soccer.
