A brief history of pokies:
The first coin-operated pokie machine was created in 1894 and, 10 years later, pokies arrived down under. Even though these pokies were banned, they were easily found in pubs across Australia. In 1953, an Australian company created the first Native American Pokie game called Clubman, and, finally, in 1956, New South Wales legalised pokie machines. That is when playing pokies really began to become popular. In the mid-1980s, pokies games came to computers for the first time and in 1994, 100 years after the world's first pokie machine, the very first online casino was born.
Why do Australians call them pokies?
The Cardies or Video Poker machines were strategically placed near the slot machines (pokies) in pubs across Australia for patrons to have easy access to the games while enjoying some drinks. All these games were called "poker machines", even the slots. Over time, the nickname pokies emerged, and included all the gambling machines in the pub. Men and women across Australia could be heard reciting the famous line, "I'm going to the pub to play pokies."
