Below we list safe, reputable and legal betting sites for 2018. In 2017, the Australian government outlawed casino sites that haven’t obtained local licenses. Despite casino operators aiming to obtain local authorization, the process has been slow and therefore mainstream betting platforms are the only legally authorized forms of gambling offering real money options in 2018.

Although glitzy and colorful, befitting of a carnival theme, the graphics here at very dated, disappointingly so. Still, it was created a good few years ago, so we can forgive it for that. The fact that there are only 9 paylines, however, is a little less forgivable.


On the plus side, the house edge is low, between 3% and 4%, which means the RTP is between 96% and 97%. Not that bad at all.




You can bet for as little as $0.25 per coin on this pokie, an amount that goes up to $5. You can place between 2.25 coins and 45 coins per spin, which leads to quite a high maximum bet.


Bonus Rounds


As is so often the case with arcade pokies that have limited paylines, there is no bonus round here. There are no free spins either, and you also won’t find any sort of instant win feature. The market that this pokie targets tend not to be interested in that sort of thing. They want limited paylines, high RTPs and fast games. That’s exactly what this is, but personally we love games with stacks of features and beautiful graphics, and there’s none of that going on here.




As mentioned above, this is not really our type of pokie. The graphics are dated and basic at best, and the fact that there are no bonus rounds is a huge negative in our eyes. All in all, this is not a pokie we enjoyed playing and it is not one that we can recommended to anyone but the limited few who like to keep things basic.
