Criteria for the pokie ratings

On Bojoko, both the players and the casino testers can give written feedback and a numeric rating. We appreciate all the comments, but also want to give everybody a common framework for the slot ratings. That way, the scores are comparable and provide more value to the community.

Game design

The game design score measures the pokie's appearance.

The preferences for good design may vary between players. However, both good and bad looking games usually stand out.

A good looking game may be forgiven what it lacks in originality or features. Conversely, outdated or ugly graphics will turn players away from an otherwise brilliant slot.

The game is exceptionally well-designed and visually engaging.
The appearance and the graphics are of good quality.
The graphics and design are OK and don't cause a strong reaction one way or the other.
The game has many aesthetic issues.
Poor graphics are the main reason you don't want to play this game.

Gameplay

The gameplay score is the measure of user interface and technical playability.

These days, players expect a lot in terms of usability. The games should run without issues and the interface should be responsive, logical and easy to use.

Every element works smoothly. The interface is appealing and very easy to use.
The user-friendly game interface creates a pleasant gaming experience.
Gameplay and user interface are OK but a few improvements wouldn't hurt.
The game doesn't work as it should.
Many user interface issues. The poor usability makes the game difficult to play.

Features

The most exciting moments and the biggest wins can usually be accessed via the bonus game and other special features. They spice up the slot and provide more entertainment than the base game.

There's a huge range of features in modern slots. You'll find explanations in the slot listings and more detailed descriptions in the Slot tester reviews. On our Online pokies page, we list and explain the most popular features.

The features need to be clearly designed and familiar enough to use. At the same time, they should bring something new to the table. A tall order indeed.

Multiple innovative features offer entertainment and fit the main game well.
There are several special features, but they lack in originality or entertainment value.
Special features are common and uninnovative.
Very few features with little entertainment value.
No special features at all.

Game sounds

The game sounds score measures the quality of music and sound effects. At their best, they fit the theme and build an immersive gaming experience. Sounds help players follow what's happening on the screen.

Conversely, boring or glitchy sounds push players away.

Brilliant sound environment supports and complements the immersive experience.
Music and sounds are used well.
Music and sounds are OK but need improvement.
Very basic sound effects. The game may lack music altogether.
Very poor sound environment.

Mobile gaming

Players expect to be able to play their favourite games on any device, and game studios deliver. Games should run equally well on laptops, tablets and smartphones.

The most mobile-friendly suppliers design the games in a way that makes them especially well-suited for touchscreens and small displays.

The mobile-first design shows in the intuitive user interface, e.g. easy switching between portrait and landscape mode, and easy one-hand usability.
The game runs smoothly on any device and the interface is easy to use.
The mobile version isn't defective or stripped, but the game clearly wasn't designed for mobile.
The mobile version is a barebones version of the desktop version and lacks some features.
The game doesn't run on mobile.

Originality

The originality score measures the game's ability to bring something unique to the table. This encompasses all the areas mentioned above, plus the theme of the game.

Is the game just another run-of-the-mill slot: a reskin with the same old features and gameplay? Or does it experiment with something completely new?

A completely unique game that pushes boundaries.
An innovative approach to a familiar theme or features.
A recognisable style with some attempt.
Re-skin that follows the safe old patterns.
A bulk game with zero effort.
