Choose Your Favourite Pokies from a Single Cabinet
Rather than a distinct poker machine, Player’s World is a system which allows you to swap between classic games without changing seat. In many ways this was a precursor to the spectacular Wonder 4 pokies.
Player’s World is housed in a simple cabinet. It comes in two versions – Sapphire and Diamond. You will also find High Limit Player’s World pokies. You can choose from some classic Aristocrat games, along with some enhanced ‘deluxe’ editions.
Reasons to Choose Player’s World Pokies:
Aristocrat has a huge back catalogue – and finding a single bar or casino with all the titles would be a challenge. Here are the main reasons that Player’s World is the right pokie to pick:
There are two versions of this pokie, each with different games.
Player’s World Sapphire Edition: Two of the six titles can also be found on the Diamond version, though these are the enhanced ‘deluxe’ variations. These are Fortune King, Black Panther, 50 Dragons, 5 Dragons, Big Red and Timber Wolf.
With a single button to get back to the game selection screen on both versions, you can hop between pokies quickly. Rather than go through every game in depth, I have listed the highlights below.
Buffalo pokies are in every casino these days, and now come in multiple variations. In the Player’s Club Diamond Edition, you’ll find the deluxe version of the original Buffalo. This has 4 rows of symbols on each of the 5 reels instead of 3 and uses an all-ways winning system. Key to big wins is to line up those buffalo symbols. When you do you’ll hear the shout ‘Buffalooooo’ and can win big prizes. There is a free spins bonus game where wild symbols get multipliers.
Big Red is a classic Aussie pokie from the biggest Australian software house. The star of this game is a giant Kangaroo. Again, free spins are your target. Here you’ll get multipliers on wins with wilds – which will frequently connect a lot of traditional images of Oz.
5 Dragons was one of the original Asian themed pokies from Aristocrat. With so many new Asian games in their range, this one is showing signs of age. Fortunately, the classic game-play is still excellent. All-ways wins are used and lining up those dragons can pay big.
50 Dragons was the first of the spectacular Asian themed pokies from Aristocrat. With enhanced graphics, big reels and 50 win-lines, there is plenty of room for those stacked symbols to line up. What I like about this game are the extra wilds which are added for the free spins bonus games.
Timber Wolf is not a million miles from Buffalo – though set further north on the American continent. You’ll be howling at the moon if you line up 5 of the highest paying wolf symbols. During the free spins game, you’ll get a chance to choose how many spins you take – balancing this with different multipliers.
Fortune King again features classic Asian symbols. The king himself is quite the character, with a classic drooping moustache. This symbol is wild and will connect a lot of wins with the reel-power (all-ways) winning system in place.
Aristocrat pioneered the concept of housing several pokies in the same cabinet. This has now become hugely popular with the new ‘Wonder 4’ games. I like the idea of being able to switch quickly between games. When the most popular pokies are in use, you’ll be able to find them via these cabinets.
The games used are classics, though there are many better Aristocrat titles available. It would be great to see an updated Player’s World – maybe housing some of the more recent titles.
