Big 5 Pokie Machine

As much as I love video pokies, there is something about classic three reel games that really appeals to me. I guess this may be because of my previous land based experiences with these games, as I have had my largest wins ever on these types of games.

Big 5 is an animal themed video pokie that is a classic game in its purest. The game offers none of the thrills and bonus features that you find with video pokies; you simply push the spin button and watch the reels spin.

Is Big 5 any fun, or should you stick to the video pokies put out by Microgaming? Read on to find out.

Graphics and Animations

Graphically, the Big 5 pokie is simple and a bit dated. I expect this from three-reel games, as they have the classic pokie theme in mind when they are designed, so this is not as major a deal to me as it is with video pokies.

You will find classic pokie symbols such as the bar and cherry, while there is also a lion symbol that can pay out hefty wins.

Animations are non-existent, as there is nothing that would trigger such a motion. Instead, winning combinations are treated with a blinking motion and classic pokie sound.


As long as you aren’t expecting advanced and in-depth features from Big 5, you will likely be happy with the game. Big 5 is a simple pokie, and what you see on the first spin is what you are going to get.

I played Big 5 for about 20 minutes, and ended up racking up some big wins. I never was able to score the three lions, but I did hit cherries quite a bit as well as bar symbols.


Big 5 is a good classic themed pokie that doesn’t offer a lot of features, but doesn’t pretend to be anything else. As long as you go in knowing what to expect, this game can be a good diversion away from the myriad of video pokies you see so often nowadays.

Despite the number of similar looking slots games around, this one has stood the test of time thanks to interesting gameplay and the tantalising prospect of a giant jackpot.
