Some Simple Playtech Arcade Games Online

There are some simple games that most of us have played in our childhood. Two of these games are the subject of this article. One is tossing a coin and seeing if you can call heads or tails correctly. The other is the two person game – rock, paper, scissors. The leading online casino software developer Playtech has taken these simple games and with a little ingenuity turned them into fixed odd arcade games.

Heads or Tails is the title of the coin tossing Playtech arcade game. In its simplest format it is played by selecting 1 coin play and Flip 1x. The player selects his bet amount from the range provided. This varies from $0.10 to $100. The player then selects heads or tails and flips the coin once by clicking the Flip 1x button. The coin is tossed on the table. To make the visual more realistic three players are shown on the table drinking beer and watching the proceedings. If the player has guessed right he received a payout of 1.9 times, which includes his stake. The game can be made more challenging by flipping the single coin two times or three times. A favorable outcome results if the player's guesses right on each flip. The payouts for the Flip 2x and Flip 3x are 3.8 times and 7.5 times respectively.

Playtech has introduced an even greater challenge through the 2 coin play option. Two coins are tossed simultaneously. The player can choose both heads, both tails or one head and one tail. Both heads and both tails occur less frequently and therefore have larger payouts. For the Flip 1x option two heads or two tails pay out 3.8 times and one head and one tail pays out 1.9 times. The 2 coin play option can also be played with Flip 2x and Flip 3x.

Rock Paper Scissors is the second Playtech arcade game. The bet range is again from $0.10 to $100. The player has to choose one of rock, paper and scissors. In the animated bout his hand will conform to his choice. The opponent will randomly make a similar choice. If both choose the same then the bet pushes. Otherwise the rock beats the scissors, the scissors beat the paper and the paper beats the rock. Once the player makes a choice there is an animated sparring of both hands leading to an outcome. The simplest bet is the single event bet that pays out 1.9 times for a win. This again includes the staked amount.

Players can also bet on a winning streak of 2, 3 or 4 outcomes. These bets are structured differently. The player has to win each event. The same selection by both hands results in a loss for the player. The player can change his choice of rock, scissors or paper in between outcomes. The payout a 2 streak outcome is 8.7 times, the payout for a 3 streak outcome is 26 times and the payout for a 4 streak outcome is 78 times.

Heads or Tails and Rock Paper Scissors are Playtech arcade games that cannot be played for long periods of time, but they serve two objectives. One is that they bring in nostalgia of reliving childhood games but in an adult format. Second is that they let players unwind from the fatigue of gambling on more serious online casino games. Heads or Tails and Rock Paper Scissors can be played at all Playtech online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Omni Casino and Casino Tropez.
