The leading software provider Playtech offers an exciting range of Arcade Games at its online casinos. Included in the Arcade Games are some Hi Lo games. The fascinating thing about these Hi Lo games is that they have been integrated into themes and incorporate innovations. This alleviates the boredom usually associated with such games.

One such Playtech online casino game is Around the World Hi Lo. Guessing the outcome correctly takes the player on a four stage journey across the world. To traverse from one stage to the next players have to pass through six stages of Hi Lo guessing. The graphics show the player boarding a train at the beginning of the game with a closed safe. The first stage is Paris with the Eiffel Tower, the second stage is New York with the Statue of Liberty, the third stage is the Great Wall of China and the fourth stage is London with the Big Ben. If the player reaches the fourth stage the safe opens to reveal gold coins. At each stage the player can collect the payout for that stage or continue playing. On reaching the first stage the player is eligible for a payout of 2.5 times the staked amount. The second stage offers a payout of 3.0; the third stage offers a payout of 3.5 and the fourth stage offers a payout of 4.0.

At each spin the objective is to predict whether the next number will be higher or lower than the previous one. In Playtech Hi Lo the same number never comes up twice in a row. If player choose correctly, he advances one step. Six correct choices enable the player to reach the next level. However, if the player guesses incorrectly then all may not be lost. The first time the player guesses incorrectly within a stage he gets one strike. The second time he guesses incorrectly within the same stage, the game is over and the player loses the staked amount. Reaching the end of the stage with on strike clears the existing strike. However, there is a penalty attached. The stake is not multiplied by the corresponding payout multiplier, but remains the same. The player does not win or lose any money.

The wheel has numbers from 1 to 49. But it also has three special events and may stop on one of these. The first special event is indicated by RS, which stands for Remove Strike. If the player has received a strike during this stage it is removed and the player has a clean slate. This meant that if he then reaches the next stage without any further strikes then he will be entitled to the multiplied payout. If he gets a strike after the RS event it will count as the first strike. The second special event is indicated by AS, which stands for Advance One Step. The player advances one step for free and will have to guess one time less. He has to use the previous number again to guess whether the next number will be higher or lower. The final special event is indicated by AL, which means Advance One Level. The player advances to the end of the level for free.

Around the World Hi Lo can be played at all Playtech online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Casino Tropez, Casino Del Rio and Omni Casino.
