How we rate mobile pokies and what you should look for
Here at NZOnlinePokies we utilize a mobile pokies rating system to curate the best mobile casinos for New Zealand players. Take a look for yourself and remember to use this same system if you’re ever in doubt about a mobile casino.
- Game variety: The number of games that a casino offers through its mobile platform should at least come close to the number of games already on offer on its other platforms. This is especially true where really popular game types such as pokies and progressive jackpot games are concerned. Table games should also be good and fairly representative of their regular offerings, a bonus would be a live casino on their mobile platform.
- Quality of gaming graphics: Thanks to advances in mobile technology, online casinos should be able to offer outstanding gaming graphics quality with their mobile version. HD graphics quality should be standard and sound should also be top quality.
- Player-Friendly: Mobile game offerings should be player-friendly. In other words, the UI (User Interface) should be clear and easy to navigate. Games should also be easy to play with one hand and should also offer trouble-free gaming with smooth action and animations and glitch-free performance.
- Portability of casino to handset: The full casino experience needs to be similar or the same between the online (Flash) version and the mobile handset version. You must feel as though you are experiencing the entire online casino in your handset, including game quality, casino support and other areas.
- Ease of opening a mobile account: The process of opening a mobile casino account should be as easy as it is with the normal online casino. The experience needs to be smooth and fast with as little effort or waiting time as possible. Even better, some online casinos allow you to have one account, both player and bank, for their full version as well as their mobile version.
Popular Mobile Pokies
Mobile slots or mobile pokies as we like to call them, are the most popular casino game played on mobile among Kiwi casino fans. This is because mobile pokies are fun, easy to play and there are hundreds to choose from, even on mobile nowadays.
The other popular reason why so many New Zealanders love to play mobile slots is that you can play most of the games in demo mode, which is a free play mode, or for real money.

Besides these great titles now available on most mobile platforms, casinos are now also offering exclusive bonus offers just for their mobile players.
The mobile offers are largely dependent on the individual casino but generally include cool Welcome Bonus packages. These Welcome Bonus packages can consist of deposit match offers (doubling your money) or free spins to play certain mobile slots, or both!
Nigel reckons the best games to go for on your mobile device are the slots and progressives. This is where all the real action is. Mobile slots look great on most mobile devices although table games look pretty good too!
