Australia has a thriving land casino industry. Australian land based slot machines know as Pokies are very popular. Unfortunately there are some legal issues with online gambling in Australia. However, a fair number of Australian players are able to access offshore online casinos for wagering. Therefore online service providers have a small selection of slot games with Australian themes to cater to these players.

The leading online gaming software provider Rival Gaming offers a slot game Diamonds Down Under. Down Under is the nick name given to Australia because it is in the southern part of the southern hemisphere. And Australia has a vibrant diamond mining industry. The symbols reflect the culture and fauna of Australia. The animals include the popular kangaroo and koala bear and the lesser known crocodiles and lizards. The kangaroo crossing sign is a special touch. The original Australian culture is represented by the Aborigine and the boomerang and the current culture by the can of lager beer. The mining part of the theme is represented by diamonds and the hammer. Many of the symbols engage in full screen animations that add to the visual appeal. The free spins feature offers up to 100 free spins at tripled payouts and in the bonus game on the second screen players select spots on a map to dig for diamonds. Rival Gaming offers another Australian theme slot game titled Aussie Rules. This is based on football played under Australian rules.

Kanga Cash from the software provider Cryptologic is a gold prospecting themed online slot game. Australia is rich in mineral wealth and this is a natural subject for slot games. Again the symbols show a mix of the gold prospecting theme and Australian flowers and animals. Depicting the former are the prospector, his shed, hat with hanging corks and back pack. The Australian animals are koala, dingo, ostrich, kangaroo and cockatoo. Australian outback music accompanies payouts. The kangaroo is the wild symbol, which appears only on reels 1 and 5 and doubles payouts. When the kangaroo appears on both reels simultaneously 15 free spins at tripled payouts are awarded to the player. The shed is the scatter symbol and offers scatter payouts. Cryptologic offers another slot game called Thunder from Down Under. Thunder from Down Under is an internationally acclaimed male revue from Australia. The reels feature some of the males from the show and there are animations of a male strip when they make winning combinations.

Red Sands from Realtime Gaming (RTG) is another Australian themed online slot game. Some Australian areas like the Great Sandy Desert and the Great Victorian Desert are known for their red sands and that is the theme of the slot game. The reels are set in such a desert. Animals local to the habitat such as echidna, wombat, koala and kangaroo appear on the reels. The high value card symbols have also been crafted prominently. The Re-Spin feature is awarded when two or more Moonscapes symbols appear on the reels. During this feature, the reels on which the Moonscapes symbols that triggered it are held while the other reels spin up to 10 times. Red Sands has the RTG randomly triggered progressive jackpot. It can be won at the end of any spin regardless of what reel combinations hit or the amount bet per spin.
