Loaded Online Pokies Review

Down in the hood you're either loaded or you're not and that ghetto culture is something that flows through this Microgaming's Loaded online pokies game. Featuring hip hop characters and somewhat dated styling, this game certainly tries to ooze "cool". However, one thing we did note during our online pokies review of Loaded pokies is that it does show its age.


The "boxed" look and lack of dynamism within the graphics will put many modern gamers off. Although this doesn't affect how the game plays, it doesn't help the overall aesthetics or its entertainment value. Of course, when it comes down to it, the only thing that matters is the money you can win; so, while we don't necessarily love the styling, it doesn't mean we don't approve of this game overall.


The free play Loaded pokies online game and Loaded for reel money are both five reel, 25 payline titles that have jackpots worth 7,000 coins (real and virtual). Because this game is powered by the Microgaming it naturally contains all the hallmarks of quality you'd expect when it come to structure and gameplay.

On a purely mechanical level, the coin denominations in free Loaded pokies (or the real money game) range from 0.01 to 0.50. This converts into wagers of between 1 and 20 coins per payline which means you're able to bet between $0.01 and $250.00 per spin.

The Bling symbol is the game's scatter symbol and this can land anywhere on the five reels to complete a winning combination (provided two or more Bling scatter symbols are visible). When you roll in three or more scatter symbols the Free Spin Bonus Round is unlocked.

On top of the scatter, The Rap Artist icon acts as the wild symbol in this game. The Loaded slot machine game does not substitute for the Bling symbol to complete winning scatter combinations or to activate the Free Spin Bonus Round game. The Rap Artist symbol triples the any payout if it completes the winning combination.

The Rap Artist Triple 7 wild symbol only multiplies payouts if it acts a substitute symbol.

Multiple Rap Artist Triple 7 wild symbols on an enabled payline create winning combinations, as shown in the "Regular Payout Schedule".

Added Value

When you're playing Loaded pokies for real money there is a free spins round but we found during our review that the most impressive piece of added value was the gamble feature.

This bonus feature is unlocked after every winning spin and it's your choice whether you take it or not. To play the game is simple:

If you correctly guess the colour of a card your win is double.

Correctly guessing the card suit will quadruple your win.

The reason this feature is so impressive is that you can bank money or gamble at your leisure. Instead of being locked into a game where the only exit route is a certain payout or bust, this option allows you to gamble until you lose your nerve. At this point you can cash out and continue the main game.
