Red Dog Across Software ProvidersBy: Shirley Spicer, Friday September 24th 2010

Red Dog is a card based online casino game that is offered by all major software providers as a single player game. Some software providers like Microgaming and Cryptologic do show multiple betting positions on the table but only one is functional. Red Dog is listed under Table Games by all software providers. Red Dog is one of the few games in which the rules and payouts are identical across all software providers. This is because the absolute simplicity of the game does not offer room for variation in payouts. However there are variations in the bet ranges, displays and features and these are discussed in this article.
Microgaming offers one of the smallest bet ranges in Red Dog. The minimum bet is 1 credit and the maximum bet is 50 credits. The spread numbers are individually displayed across the table even though the spread numbers from 4 to 11 all payout even money. Microgaming Red Dog does not have dealer's voices, but it does offer game sounds for cards being dealt and chips being moved. There are some background music sounds as well.
Cryptologic Red Dog also has a minimum bet of 1 credit and a maximum bet of 50 credits. The display is also like the Microgaming variant, except that it has a modernist styling. Where Cryptologic Red Dog scores over Microgaming is that it offers dealer's voices. The dealer announces the spread and also whether the winner is the house or the player. This not only adds realism to the game but enables new players to follow the game more easily.
High rollers who want to play Red Dog should opt for the Playtech variant. Though the minimum bet is the same, players can wager up to 300 credits. High wagering, for those who can afford it, adds excitement to an otherwise extremely simple casino card game. The display is like the Cryptologic Red Dog and the audio offers only background sounds with no music and no dealer's voices.
Rival Gaming Red Dog has a bet range from 1 credit to 200 credits. There are no dealer's voices or music, but only background sounds. Rival Gaming Red Dog has a slightly different display. The spreads from 4 to 11 offer even money payout and are hence not shown separately but clubbed in one cell. The Realtime Gaming Red Dog is identical to the Rival Gaming variant. The only difference is that the maximum bet is 250 credits instead of 200 credits.
The Vegas Technology Red Dog is completely different from the others in one respect. The spreads are not displayed across the screen but in text form towards the right side. The spreads from 4 to 11 are clubbed together. The game has a minimum bet of 1 credit and a maximum bet of 200 credits. Like the Cryptologic Red Dog, the Vegas Technology variant also has dealer's voices and this is an advantage.
For those players who are not aware of the rules, brief rules are described below. The player places the ante bet. Then two cards are dealt face up. If there is a spread between the two cards, which can range from 1 to 11, the player can raise with an identical wager or continue with the ante wager. A third card is dealt. If it falls within the spread the player receives a corresponding payout.
