The Best Online Pokies in Australia

Published

on

Aussies know how to have a good time, and online pokies are one of their favorite ways to do it. With so many different types of games, there is something for everyone. Whether a player is after an opportunity to win big or wants to have fun, it is possible to find the perfect game that suits their needs. However, given the many options, finding online pokies to categorize as the best is often a daunting task.

1. 3-Reel Pokies 

It is impossible to talk about online pokies in Australia without mentioning 3-reel pokies. It is one of the most popular online slots in Australia. One of the reasons for its popularity is that anybody can play regardless of experience level. The online features resemble slot machines available in brick-and-mortar casinos. But they have slight variations. 

Some use the same sound and theme as the casino versions, giving players a nostalgic feel. The addition of several features and options makes the games even more fascinating. For instance, it is possible to start with multiple free spins. The limited number of slots makes it appealing to high rollers since they guarantee higher payouts. 

In addition, it has fewer controls that are easy to learn, and if you are tired of staring at your screen, you can schedule the autoplay feature. For amateur players who want to enjoy the zeal and thrill of online pokies, this is the perfect game to play. It is also possible for them to spend as much as they would like playing as long as they are of legal betting age.

2. Majestic Megaways

Capture the African spirit with the adventurous theme and features of the Majestic Megaways. With over 117,649 possible ways to win, a player can win up to 20,000 times the bet amount. One of its features is the mystery symbol represented by a bright moon and hills in the background. It is not easy to ignore the horizontal reel since it can dramatically increase players’ winning chances. 

To get free spins, a player has to get the diamond symbols on the board—four of these symbols at any place on the board guarantee 12 extra spins. An additional blue diamond signifies five more extra spins. However, there is a limit of 27 free spins. Once a player wins on a free spin, the win is multiplied by one, and it goes up after every win on a free spin. With so many spins to win, fans consider the Majestic Megaways one of the best online pokies. 

3. King of Kings

King of Kings is a low variance game with high volatility, which means the wins are unpredictable and significant. The bonus rounds in this slot game are also out of this world. To win in this game, the player has to match five symbols on the reels. Finding online pokies that offer re-spins is not easy. However, you can get several re-spins with King of Kings. 

Free spins give players more chances to win using combinations of symbols on the pay line. At the same time, bonuses can double your payout or offer a multiplier for each additional symbol landed. When looking for online pokies that feature bonuses and free spins, King of Kings is the best place to start.

4. 5-Reel Pokies 

5-Reel pokies are one of the most straightforward online pokies. They have a system to generate random numbers. Once the slot starts running, the player has to guess when the combination will match, stake an amount, and hope for a win. Ideally, the more the number of matching slots is, the greater the payout.

Players love this game because it is possible to increase the odds of winnings. They have the liberty to use all the bonuses provided by the casino while playing. They can take advantage of multipliers from the special symbols for free spins without deducting a dime from their accounts.

There are greater chances of winning with more combinations, and players can try different platforms without spending money. In addition, several platforms, including iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows, support 5-reels pokies. 

Top Online Pokies

There is a long list of online pokies, each suitable for different types of players. The most important thing is to identify one that suits your style of play. If you want to go down memory lane and bring back the nostalgia and excitement of the brick-and-mortar casino, sample the 3-reel pokies. Take note of the promotions, bonuses, multipliers, and free spins available with the best online pokies.

An Analogue Renaissance, Digital Real Estate and Bioinformatics – The Digital Speaker series EP013

Published

on

In a world of digital landlords and nano-sensors, the ones and zeros are king.

Hello everyone and welcome to the Tech Journal. My name is Mark van Rijmenam, and I am The Digital Speaker.

Throughout this series, I, or my real-world twin, have teleported my digital brother, me, into cyberspace to bring you the latest in digital breakthroughs.

From bioinformatics and bitcoin, through to quantum computing and AI, I want to take a closer look at what digital innovations mean for our personal and professional lives. Let’s take a quick look at what I am covering on today’s show.

You can either view the episode below or view it on Vimeo, YouTube or listen to it on Anchor.fm, Soundcloud or Spotify

Introduction

To start, I am going to explore an emerging trend in the digital sphere, an increasing aversion to over digitised tech and we may be on the cusp of an analogue renaissance.

After, we will go to the other end of the digital spectrum and examine how the land I am standing on now, this digital world I exist in, could one day be worth more than land in the real world.

Then, for the final segment in today’s digital download, I am going to take a look at bioinformatics. What is it and what it spells for the digital future of healthcare.

And with that, my systems are fully charged, the data is collected and correlated, and my parameters are ready. It is time to start your digital download.

An Analogue Renaissance

A couple of years ago, Apple officially confirmed they intentionally slow down older phone models in order to “encourage”, and I use that term very liberally, consumers to buy the latest model.

This news came only a year after the iPhone 7 was released, a model which famously removed the universal headphone jack in favour of pairing their devices with wireless headphones, sold separately, of course.

Little did Apple realise, but their actions jump-started a movement within millennials, a movement built on the resentment of the constant forward march of digitalisation.

This only confirmed what millennials knew anyway, backed up by a SocialChorus study, showing only 6% of millennials consider online advertising to be credible.

Being the first generation to be young enough to embrace digital tech, but old enough to remember playing outside, millennials have found themselves in a unique position, between a rock and a hard place.

Or, more aptly, between digital and analogue.

Unlike Generation Z, whose streaming idols and social media lives have been digital since their birth, Millennial idols were straight out of analogue TV studios and paper magazines.

This aversion to digital tech can be seen in the statistic dug up by Forrester Research back in 2014, might as well be 100 years ago, I know, that states 29% of internet-using American adults do not use smartphones as their main phones.

To get a more recent number, we can look to a 2020 Nielsen study, which states over 85% of millennials own smartphones.

So, to invert that, 15% of millennials do not own smartphones. 15% refuse to be a part of the digital world.

But what does this mean then?

Well, the underlying desire for less complex digital devices, devices that do not demand twenty-four-hour attention, is being translated into the growing “Dumbphone” trend.

According to a Counterpoint research project reported by the Wall Street Journal, while international smartphone sales dropped in 2018, smart feature phone shipments, in other words, dumbphones, rose to roughly seventy-five million, going up to eighty-four million the following year.

Pricing also plays a role, with complicated digital devices, like iPhones, averaging around a thousand dollars, a considerable price difference with dumbphones, which on average hit the twenty-five dollar mark.

But it is not just Hipster millennials who are not using smartphones.

According to We Are Social, also reported by the Wall Street Journal, even as wealthy nations look towards rolling out 5G, roughly three point four billion people are still smart phone free and remain cut off from the digital world.

Something which, if you watched my Space Internet video, Elon Musk’s Starlink aims to solve.

If the trend continues and as Millennials get older, becoming increasingly nostalgic for the nineties, digital giants, like Apple, may adjust their business model to accommodate this growing trend.

It would not be the first-time digital tech has been side-lined for an analogue version. Digital music was and still is looked down on in favour of analogue records.

Digital Real Estate

While some digital technologies are forsaken in favour of analogue ones, recently, one of the most analogue industries in existence made its way into the digital sphere. Real Estate.

Earlier this year, the digital realm, Axie Infinity, reported a record Digital Real Estate sale.

The platform sold nine digital land plots for eight hundred and eighty-eight point two five Ether, roughly translating to one point five million US dollars.

A significant jump from the average digital land plot price of three hundred and forty-three US dollars.

Madness.

So, why did the buyer pay so much?

Well, Axie Infinity offers NFTs, non-fungible tokens, for ‘Axies’, creatures that live in the player-controlled crypto-Tamagotchi virtual ecosystem, dubbed, ‘Lunacia’.

The more land you have, the more creatures you have access to, which translates into more NFTs.

The buyer, who goes by the name ‘Flying Falcon’ and describes himself as a “digital landowner” on his Twitter, tweeted, “We’re witnessing a historic moment; the rise of digital nations with their own systems of clearly delineated, irrevocable property rights. Axie land has entertainment value, social value, and economic value in the form of future resource flows.”

To translate that, Mr Falcon sees great potential to make money from the land and has great faith in the land’s longevity.

This isn’t the first time digital real estate set real-world records, though.

Back in 2010, Jon Jacobs, an Entropia Universe user, set a record when he sold his asteroid to another player, John Foma Kalun, known as ‘pesok’, for three hundred and thirty-five thousand dollars.

Another, arguably ancient, example comes from the retro game, Second Life.

A player known online as ‘Anshe Chung’, bought and developed virtual real estate, and reportedly made one hundred and fifty thousand dollars, annually, from the pursuit.

Nevertheless, NFTs are a fascinating development and the recent auction of Beeple’s masterwork for $69 million shows what a strange world we seem to live in. For those who missed this, the digital artist sold a JPEG that anyone can view on his or her computer for the staggering amount of $69 million. In fact, I have it right here in my studio! NFTs are rapidly changing the digital world and I will certainly cover NFTs a lot more.

Bioinformatics

With traditional digital tech moving back towards analogue, and analogue businesses moving into the digital sphere, there is one industry where digital tech will always be chosen over analogue, the healthcare industry.

One of the latest digital innovations to come out of the bioinformatics world are nano-sensors.

Bioinformatics is the field that develops methods and software tools for understanding biological data.

These nano-sensors, or bio-nano materials, are used to analyse biomolecules in an effort to detect cancers mutations and diseases significantly earlier than is currently possible.

So, what type of real-world things can nano-sensors pick up on?

Nano-sensors are designed to inspect the small stuff, the stuff human eyes and tools struggle with. These sensors, once present in a patient, can analyse DNA in real-time.

As Kat Arney, science information manager at Cancer Research UK, put it, “They are looking for ways to detect DNA that has been shed by tumour cells”.

Once present in the bloodstream, nano-sensors are small enough to detect these changes and can be used as a way of monitoring cancerous cells without the need for scans or biopsies.

And according to a study coming out from The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) and The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, it did just that.

The study involved 55 women who had been successfully treated for early-stage breast cancer.

With the nano-sensors in their blood, a simple blood test was enough to detect cancer resurgence at an average of seven-point-nine months before any visible signs appeared.

Due to their smaller size, durability, the potential to be controlled by a single AI, and enhanced biocompatibility, Thomas Webster, nano-tech engineer and chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering at Northeastern University in Boston, had this to say.

“We think there’s a strong promise for nanotechnology that’s used in medicine, obviously because the small size allows you to penetrate cells, get inside cells and manipulate their function in ways that you can’t do with conventional material.”

What is more, with the inclusion of deep mind AI to analyse medical results, we are looking at a potential situation where AI nano-bots can detect and treat mutations inside a cell, without instruction.

The Future

Without going too far into the realm of imagination, this form of deeptech, a technology designed to solve some of mankind’s biggest scientific and engineering challenges, has the potential to dramatically increase the average lifespan, and even eradicate cancer.

If we then also take into account other digital innovations I covered in previous videos, like, Liquid Neural Networks, nanosensors, and AlphaFold protein folding, we suddenly find we are looking at a near-future where digital healthcare speeds up exponentially.

Much like in the same way we watched screen and network technology, like the internet, smartphones, and TVs, take off in the early millennium, taking us to a place where we are using devices that were confined to the pages of science fiction only twenty years ago.

NotCo gets its horn following $235M round to expand plant-based food products

Published

on

NotCo, a food technology company making plant-based milk and meat replacements, wrapped up another funding round this year, a $235 million Series D round that gives it a $1.5 billion valuation.

Tiger Global led the round and was joined by new investors, including DFJ Growth Fund, the social impact foundation, ZOMA Lab; athletes Lewis Hamilton and Roger Federer; and musician and DJ Questlove. Follow-on investors included Bezos Expeditions, Enlightened Hospitality Investments, Future Positive, L Catterton and Kaszek Ventures.

This funding round follows an undisclosed investment in June from Shake Shack founder Danny Meyer through his firm EHI. In total, NotCo, with roots in both Chile and New York, has raised more than $350 million, founder and CEO Matias Muchnick told TechCrunch.

Currently, the company has four product lines: NotMilk, NotBurger and NotMeat, NoticeCream and NotMayo, which are available in the five countries of the U.S., Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Colombia.

The company is operating in the middle of a trend toward eating healthier food, as more consumers also question how their food is made, resulting in demand for alternative proteins. In fact, the market for alternative meat, eggs, dairy and seafood products is predicted to reach $290 billion by 2035, according to research by Boston Consulting Group and Blue Horizon Corp.

NotCo’s proprietary artificial intelligence technology, Giuseppe, matches animal proteins to their ideal replacements among thousands of plant-based ingredients. It is working to crack the code in understanding the molecular components and food characteristics in the combination of two ingredients that could mimic milk, but in a more sustainable and resourceful way — and that also tastes good, which is the biggest barrier to adoption, Muchnick said.

“Our theory is that there is a crazy dynamic among people: 60% who are already eating plant-based are not happy with the taste, and 30% of those who drink cow’s milk are waiting to change if there is a similar taste,” he added. “Our technology is based in AI so that we can create a different food system, as well as products faster and better than others in the space. There are 300,000 plant species, and we still have no idea what 99% of them can do.”

In addition to a flow of investments this year, the company launched its NotMilk brand in the United States seven months ago and is on track to be in 8,000 locations across retailers like Whole Foods Market, Sprouts and Wegmans by the end of 2021.

Muchnick plans to allocate some of the new funding to establish markets in Mexico and Canada and add market share in the U.S. and Chile. He expects to have 50% of its business coming from the U.S. over the next three years. He is also eyeing an expansion into Asia and Europe in the next year.

NotCo also intends to add more products, like chicken and other white meats and seafood, and to invest in technology and R&D. He expects to do that by doubling the company’s current headcount of 100 in the next two years. Muchnick also wants to establish more patents in food science — the company already has five — and to explore a potential intelligence side of the business.

Though NotCo reached unicorn status, Muchnick said the real prize is the brand awareness and subsequent sales boost, as well as opening doors for quick-service restaurant deals. NotBurger went into Burger King restaurants in Chile 11 months ago, and now has 5% of the market there, he added.

Sales overall have grown three times annually over the past four years, something Muchnick said was attractive to Tiger Global. He is equally happy to work with Tiger, especially as the company prepares to go public in the next two or three years. He said Tiger’s expertise will get NotCo there in a more prepared manner.

“NotCo has created world class plant-based food products that are rapidly gaining market share,” said Scott Shleifer, partner at Tiger Global, in a written statement. “We are excited to partner with Matias and his team. We expect continued product innovation and expansion into new geographies and food categories will fuel high and sustainable growth for years to come.”
