On The Beach With Australian Online Pokies

December 23, 2016


It is summer time in Australia and the beaches will be packed with surfers, volley ball players and those wanting to tan their bodies. Microgaming has picked up these themes in two of its very popular online pokies. You can play them at Australian online casinos like Casino Mate, Platinum Play and Spin Palace.

Beach Babes is a cheerful online pokie with a background of sands, sea, sky, clouds and palm trees. The main symbols are the three girls interested in playing beach ball, surfing and scuba diving respectively. All of them are interested in the hunky life guard. The win animations create an atmosphere of intimacy. The game logo is the wild symbol that doubles payouts when substituting in win combinations. It also awards the highest line payouts, the top payout being a whopping 10,000 coins. The ice cooler symbol awards scatter payouts that are multiplied by the total bet when two or more of them land anywhere on the reels. You can also win up to 30 free spins depending on the number of scatter symbols in the triggering spin. All payouts are multiplied 6 times in the free spins. The online pokie also includes the Microgaming gamble game. Beach Babes is a high variance online pokie with 25 selectable paylines.
