New dice based, peer-to-peer games hit the market
An announcement came this week from UK online gambling group Betfair about three new additions to the portfolio of its Poker Cubed brand. The innovative community dice games, powered by game developer Jadestone, enable players to face each other across a virtual table, in a familiar poker-style betting format, which uses dice instead of cards.
The three new offerings are: Dice Hold 'em - a new take on the popular poker variant, Texas hold 'em; Shoot the Moons - a simple betting game, where players bet on who has rolled the highest scores; Liar's Dice - a popular bar game in which opponents try to outbid and out bluff each other on the values of ten partially concealed dice.
According to Betfair manager Ashley Chase, with the new releases and its brand Poker Cubed, the company wanted to give an innovative new twist to the game of poker.
"We believe the product offers a challenge to veteran card players and newcomers alike," he said. "Betfair's multi-player Poker Cubed games bring a new dimension to poker with six times the action."
In related news, Betfair launched an online slot version of the cult classic video game Sensible Soccer, which in Betfair's version features 5 reels, 25 pay-lines and a 'Euro Cup' bonus feature. In the feature, players bet on a European soccer club and watch the progress of their choice through a simulated tournament.
