What are jackpot slots and pokies and how do they work?
Jackpot pokies are online slots that can pay out a huge amount if you’re lucky. These games are, to all intents and purposes, essentially similar to other video pokies commonly found online, but they just have these big wins. There are various different types of big win pokies available. Some you need to simply go through the pokie game and win the top prize by getting the right bonus symbols and triggering those additional features. Others you will need to actually play the top bet possible if you want to scoop the top prize, but we’ll go into those details later on. Similar to video pokies, these high prize games all come in a range of different themes. This means that you can make your game choice based on those themes as well as choosing based on the in-game extra features that are available within all of these games.
Rules of jackpot slots and pokies
The rules of jackpot slots and pokies are very similar to that of other video pokies found at our online casino. The main things you need to be aware of are the paylines available. You will need to make sure that any of the matching symbols on the reels actually land on the relevant paylines. If they are landing on the reels but not along those paylines, then you will not get a win. You will also need to place any bets on the spins within the betting limits specified for that pokie. For a full understanding of what is required within each game you will need to check out the paytables that each pokie has provided. Here you can find out which symbols are worth which value and you can also see which are the bonus symbols and what rewards they can bring you to help you win.
Types of jackpot slots and pokies
Progressive jackpot pokies are the most exciting version of these games. This is because the jackpot on these games continues to grow when it hasn’t been won. Progressives all start at a pre-specified amount, but every time a player places a bet on the pokie, a small percentage of that bet is added to the jackpot total. In this way some of these progressives can grow into the multi-million winning jackpots we see so often these days. There are also fixed jackpot games similar to other casino games found online. These fixed jackpots are, as you might expect, unchanging. This does have its positives as it means that if a player wins it, someone else can win the exact same prize instantly without having to wait for the prize to grow again. Often these jackpot games can be played using a deposit bonus, a great way to test them out as you can’t play them in demo mode.
Most popular jackpot slots and pokies
There are a number of different top jackpot games available online. These games, as we have touched upon, all come in a range of different themes that can add a little extra excitement to the proceedings. This makes a change from playing table games like blackjack, as these games tend to only vary in theme through their colour and number of decks played in the game. One of the top progressives in New Zealand, and indeed around the world, is Microgaming’s Mega Moolah. This vibrant game’s theme is all about different African animals. However, its main claim to fame comes from the fact that it offers huge progressive jackpots that are regularly in the multi millions of dollars. Not only does it reach this height on a regular basis, but it’s also been won regularly too proving it to be a good option to try your hand at.

- Mega Fortune
- Hall of Gods
- Jackpot Giants
There are a number of other big jackpot games that are great for new players to try. The fun-filled Spamalot takes a lot of elements from the Monty Python movie making it highly entertaining. Not only is the theme a fun one, there are also four additional in-game bonuses through which you can win a whole ton of extra wins. Another big jackpot game is NetEnt’s Mega Fortune. This one plays on the potentially lucrative nature of the pokie itself, with all the symbols on the reels featuring expensive items that you can buy if you win that big prize. Similar to roulette, all of these games are purely luck-based, so you will need to maintain a bankroll if you want to play for an extended period of time. Other pokies that are popular in NZ include Hall of Gods with a Norse god theme and some serious wins as well as Jackpot Giants.

Deposits and withdrawals
When it comes to playing on any casino live games, it’s always important to know what the payment methods are. For New Zealanders, there may always be a little bit of concern when starting to play at a new site. This is because you don’t know whether the casino can be trusted and whether any deposits you make are secure. In order to put your minds at ease, we have a large number of New Zealand-specific payment options for eWallets, instant pay and card payments. We have minimum deposit and withdrawal limits of $10 with a maximum limit of $5000 per deposit and $7000 per month for withdrawals. However, if you’re a Loyalty member then you can access even higher withdrawal limits. Deposits are instant and fee-free unless you make a deposit with a credit card which incurs a 2.5% fee. Withdrawals take longer – up to three days – and you must make sure your account has been verified to ensure speedy processing.
Play jackpot slots and pokies with your mobile
Playing on your mobile is now a hugely popular way of accessing online casino games. So that you can enjoy the same platform quality, we have made sure that our Betiton Casino site is fully compatible and optimised for mobile use. You can simply log in to your account using the mobile browser and get playing in the same way you would on the desktop site. However, we do not have a dedicated mobile app at this time. The mobile browser setup is virtually identical to that of the desktop site, however we do utilise drop-down menus to keep the screen clear and uncluttered. All the jackpot pokies we offer are also mobile compatible due to the fact that we use only the very best software providers. These providers produce all their games using HTML5 software, which means they can be used on mobiles, are fully scalable and don’t miss out any of their features.
Customer support and Loyalty Club
We have a number of different methods that players from NZ can use to get in contact with our staff. For the most part we strive to keep our casino site up and running smoothly, but occasionally there may be some issues that arise or you may have a question that we haven’t covered in the FAQ section on the site. With that in mind we have our support open from 8am through to 1am CET. Not only do we have a long time frame, but we also provide our support in eight different languages. We also offer our players a Loyalty Club, which is perfect to get your gaming moving ahead. Our Loyalty club is based on a loyalty point system, which you can get by making real money deposits and playing different games. There are seven tiers within the club and as you get points you move through the levels for bigger and better prizes.
Betiton casino holds casino licenses from both the MGA and the UKGC, which makes it perfectly positioned to offer a set of stellar casino features. With these two jurisdictions monitoring the casino, we are able to offer players a highly safe and secure gaming platform that abides by strict rules and regulations. One of the key things that we offer our players is responsible gaming. While it is always fun to play online, there can come a time when you realise that you, or someone close to you, may be playing a little too much. If you feel that you are getting addicted to gambling, it may be time to speak to someone or take a step back from playing. In order to help you achieve this we have a number of NZ-based helplines that you can use to talk to someone. Alternatively we have a self-exclusion programme as well as loss limit options.
