Exploration Themed Microgaming Online Pokies

When one thinks of exploration of new lands two areas come to mind. One is the Pacific islands culminating in the discovery of Australia and New Zealand. The other is the icy Polar region. Microgaming is a popular software provider to Australian online casinos like Casino Mate and Royal Vegas and has online pokies for both these explorations.

Polar Pioneers is a tribute to the explorers who were the first to venture to these desolate and uninhabited regions. The high paying symbols on the reels recreate their awesome adventure and include explorer, ship, boots, compass, huskies and axe. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons, which are depicted as huge ice sculptures. The reels are set in the background of the Polar snow. The top line payout is 15,000 coins, which is hit by five explorer symbols in an active payline. This payout results in a high variance online pokie suited for the aggressive nature of the theme. The explorer is also the wild symbol. The huskies symbol is the scatter and awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. Three or more huskies symbols trigger the bonus feature in which you are awarded 10 free spins at doubled payouts. The free spins can be retriggered in the usual manner. An innovative feature is the Second Chance Respin Bonus. If two huskies symbols land anywhere on the reels, those reels are held fixed and the other three reels are spun again. If an additional huskies symbol appears in the respin then the free spins are triggered. Polar Pioneer also features a gamble game in which you can try to double or even quadruple your winnings.

The exploration of the South Seas is depicted in a comic manner in the Lucky Eggsplorer online pokie. The reels are set in a ship on the oceans. The exploration is led by a rooster named Captain Chook, an obvious spoof on Captain Cook. The hula dancer and witch doctor are also represented by birds. The other thematic symbols include schooner, ship’s wheel and map. The win animations for these symbols are hilarious in keeping with the nature of the online pokie. Lucky Eggsplorer includes a thematic bonus game on the second screen. It is triggered when three or more map symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Five bird characters in native costumes are displayed on an atlas. You select three of them to win free spins and bonus credits.
