Later this month the 2016 Formula 1 season will start as usual with the Rolex Australian Grand Prix at Melbourne. It is one of the few motor races that take place on the city streets and this adds to the excitement. Australian online casinos players can further enhance the F1 enjoyment by wagering on some fantastic motor racing themed online pokies by Microgaming. These are live at online casinos like Casino Mate and Royal Vegas.
Good to Go is an earlier online pokie from Microgaming, but one that successfully creates the Formula 1 atmosphere through well-chosen symbols on the reels. These include Formula 1 car, G2G logo, checkered flags, racing wheel and driver. The playing card symbols have been given a steely look in keeping with the theme. The wild symbol is the pit girl and the scatter symbol is the speedometer. Good to Go online pokie has two bonus features. The speedometer symbol triggers three free spins during which the symbol really pays like a true scatter symbol. Australian players who like the adrenalin pumping of a Formula 1 race will love the Microgaming gamble game. You have the option of activating the game after any winning spin. If you guess the colour of the next card correctly you will double the payout and if you guess the suit of the next card correctly you will quadruple the payout. But if you guess wrong then you lose the original payout.
Racing for the Pinks is a much later release from Microgaming, and therefore is slicker in appearance. But it is not based on Formula 1 racing. This online pokie is based on illegal street races where the loser hands over his car to the winner. The ownership documents are on pink paper and hence the name. Racing for the Pinks has the 243 ways to win paylines structure that is popular at Australian online casinos. Contemporary cars and cool drivers are the high paying symbols. The win animations are exciting and set to retro music. The free spins feature is triggered when the girl in pink appears on reels 1 and 5 at the same time. You will be awarded up to 30 free spins with up to 5x multiplier. The highlight feature is the Bonus Race. A virtual motor race is run on the second screen. If you correctly choose the winner then you will win bonus credits and entry to the next level. There are five levels in all and if you are good at spotting the winners you can win up to 175 times the total bet.
