Belatra Games Pokies
Belatra Games is a Belarusian company operating in the igaming niche since 1993. It initially designed and produced slot machines, electronic roulette and video poker for land-based casinos but since the emergence of online casinos, it shifted its development efforts toward larger and larger online environment. There are very few pure Belatra Games casinos in Australia. Their top video pokies are now found in many sites in addition to games from other providers. Nowadays, Belatra Games presents around 150 pokies, with the list expanding rapidly.
Design-wise, their games do not differ much from other providers. They use popular, time-tested themes such as animals, fairy tales, jewels, money and history, yet some games do have a unique and unexpected twist relating to symbols, e.g., a 9-line The Moneymania pokie fully devoted to dollar bills or a Crazy Nuts line-up with its theme revolving around nuts. There are a few original features that are intrinsic to Belatra Games pokies:
- most pokies have 10, 40, 50 or 100 paylines that can be fixed or adjustable
- almost every pokie has a Risk feature and a player may select its format in advance. There are two types of a Risk feature: Card Double and Red-or-Black risk game. In either feature, the maximum number of rounds is 5
- almost every 5×3 pokie has a wild symbol, a scatter, free spins and a simple second-screen bonus round. The best Belatra Games slots have a multi-level jackpot
- when loading, each game shows its volatility rate ranked from 1 to 5. This can help a player choose a betting strategy or pick another game that would feature a higher or lower volatility
Jackpot Wheel in Belatra Games pokies
This is a unique development by Belatra Games. Every pokie, save in few instances, has a Jackpot Wheel feature that confers the possibility of winning a big progressive jackpot. At the top left corner of almost each pokie, there is a small jackpot bar showing the current jackpot value. In a mobile casino, the jackpot counter can be located in other places.
Each real money spin in a pokie awards 1 or more bonus points (the higher the bet, the quicker points are earned) and after collecting 2000 points, the software opens a wheel-of-fortune bonus game to play. The jackpot drawing runs in two stages and each stage gives a chance of winning a big prize. The jackpot is pooled by taking 0.5% of each real money bet and usually reaches a five-figure amount (or in bitcoin equivalent).
Craft Bonus feature in the best Belatra Games pokies
This is a new bonus available in many pokies. For example, Mayan Book offers to buy 10 free spins without waiting for them to get launched in normal spins. But contrary to pokies with a normal Bonus Buy model with a fixed bet-based cost, Mayan Book allows to pick from many bonus options that would finally affect the purchase price.
