Introducing Our Team of NZ Pokies Experts!

Pokie machines are widely available in New Zealand and heavily regulated. But online, Kiwis have access to thousands of pokies from a wide range of developers. Casinos can be licensed in Central America, Canada, or Europe, and it's hard to know how you can trust a site.

That's why we put together PlayPokies.com. We are a team of keen Kiwi gamblers who have been playing pokies since the early 2000s. We've witnessed the biggest jackpots online, seen mobile gaming grow, and watched as laws at home change. If you're curious about playing top pokies on your PC, Mac or smartphone, we can help. We'll even show you which the cheapest and most reliable payment methods are. That way, you can load up your gambling account in NZD without worrying about fees and fraud.

Casinos have been running online for about 20 years now. Over that period, hundreds of sites have appeared and disappeared. Players are more knowledgeable than ever about what makes a good pokies casino. Blacklists help NZ players decide which casinos to avoid, while top-rated rooms continue to win awards. And when it comes to a bonus or promotion, pokies fans are more aware of the restrictive wagering requirements needed to unlock one.

Our team works tirelessly to find all-round great casinos and pokies for you. After all, we're just like you: eager reel spinners who love nothing more than loading up the coins and targeting a juicy jackpot. And we hate to lose our own money. That's why our experts risk their own hard-earned cash testing out the latest sites and pokies. Together, we can make online pokies gambling a more profitable exercise.

Good luck, and we hope the jackpots come your way!

Introducing The Team

Leah Ramsey: Editor

Leah has been gambling on pokie machines since she first stepped into the SKYCITY casino in Auckland. She loves nothing more than hitting a top progressive jackpot machine. Luckily, our recommended sites are filled to the brim with progressives from the likes of Playtech, Microgaming, and NetEnt. Leah occasionally, makes a journey to Oz on "research purposes" (honest!) but she loves to get tucked up in bed with a few real money pokies on her tablet. Favourite Pokie: Mega Moolah by Microgaming.

Josh Wright: IT Specialist

Josh is our resident IT guy. Online security is Josh's big thing, and he knows a thing or three about the latest SSL encryption that casinos use to protect players. If an online casino has poor security and hacker-proof software, Josh will flag it up for you. It's Josh's job to check for rogue casinos too, those lousy sites who steal games and refuse to pay out winnings. Favourite Pokie: Big Red by Aristocrat.

Naomi Smith: Strategy Expert

If it's bonus features, volatility, and bankroll management tips you're looking for, Naomi is your girl. Naomi loves her mobile pokies and tests all of our mobile casinos to make sure they deliver on HTML5, Flash, and compatibility.
