Playtech Sic Bo Details Page
The software offers a number of customization features. These features enable the player to set up the playing environment as he wants it. These include full screen mode and sound settings. However detailed game statistics and auto play are not provided.
Easy to Understand (10)
The Playtech Sic Bo layout is self explanatory. The procedure for placing bets is also self evident. For those who need assistance a detailed Help document is available.
Graphics & Sounds (9)
The Sic Bo game does not lend itself to much in the graphics and sound section. The animation of shaking the dice and releasing them has been simulated well. The text is easily readable. The dealer’s voices add to making the game a realistic playing experience.
Game Speed (10)
Playtech Sic Bo scores on this front. The game speed can be adjusted over a continuous range by adjusting the dice release animation. There is a fast play option that can be enabled to cut off the animation and show the dice outcomes immediately.
Game Features (8)
It is in the game features section that Playtech Sic Bo has its greatest drawback. The maximum bet limits for the various wagers are not displayed up front. They are only known through warning messages when the limits have been exceeded. This negates some good features like highlighting the bet areas which would have won when the dice outcome is known.
Fun Factor (8)
Sic Bo is essentially a repetitive game and therefore does not have a very high fun factor. Nor does it have the kind of glamour associated with it that roulette has. Its plus point is that it is an exotic game. Playtech Sic Bo tries to increase the fun factor through features that replicate live casino environment.
