From 2009 to 2014, the total gambling expenditure by adults in Canberra dropped by 19%. Another significant shift occurred during this time, as well.

That’s the gist of any casino robbery. From robbing the casino in disguise (an impressive Elvis costume in 3,000 Miles to Graceland and a Santa Claus suit in Reindeer Games), to rewiring casinos (Ocean’s 11), the best casino heists require thorough planning and smooth execution. Of course this is rarely achieved and the heist results in a dramatic shootout. Check out our selection of classic casino heist movies. [Read more…]
The Wheel of Fortune Bonus is triggered by landing three or more of these symbols on an active payline. When the bonus is triggered, players simply need to press the ‘stop’ button and hope that the wheel lines up a segment with a large prize. The wheel may allow a re-spin; otherwise, the bonus round ends and the player returns to the main game with their prize.
The casino is part of the respected StarPartners group, along with industry legend Casino Mate. For Australian players and casino aficionados from around the world, House of Jack is well worth checking out.
There are two special features worth mentioning on Free Spirit. First, this pokie comes complete with a wild symbol: the Free Spirit logo. This symbol can substitute for any other as part of a winning payline, and will double the normal winnings you’d get for that combination. Hit two of these logos as a part of a winning payline, and the normal win you’d receive will be quadrupled instead.
There are knights, castles and princesses in this fantasy adventure, but you need to be careful that the dragon doesn’t get you.

Use the dragon to your advantage to gain more winning combinations and walk away with some fantasy prizes.
One of the best hands in this game is when you hold three cards between Ace and five. Straights don’t count, so A-2-3 is probably the best starting hand overall. But really any player holding any three cards between Ace and five (unpaired) has a solid hand, worth a bet and a raise if they get the chance. Less valuable is a hand with three cards Ace to six, and most of the time you can play that hand just as aggressively as the Ace to five hand. This also means you should watch out for players with low cards who increase their wagers.
The basics of Houdini are similar to what you’d see in most online pokies. It’s a five reel, 25-line poker machine that requires you to match symbols from left to right across your active paylines. Players can only bet one coin per line, however, you can adjust the stakes from a penny up to £8 per line. You’ll be matching a variety of symbols, ranging from poker ranks like jacks and aces to a number of items you might see in one of Houdini’s acts: handcuffs, magic hats, and so on.
NextGenâs games are true pokies with all the features youâd expect, like gambling for example. You can play all the NextGen games for free, like the award-winning Foxin Wins and its sequel Foxin Wins 2.
