The other Betfair releases include backgammon, where a player can play in a single game or in a match series or tournament. The Poker Cubed games are Dice Hold’em, Liar’s Dice and Shoot the Moons. The innovation is that in these peer to peer poker based games, the cards are replaced by dice. In Shoot the Moons two dice are rolled three times and betting follows. It is somewhat similar to Stud poker in that some dice are revealed and some are hidden. Liar’s Dice has players with 5 six sided dice each and involves bluffing and bidding based on the outcome of the 10 partially revealed dice. Dice Hold’em is based on Texas Hold’em except that the player is dealt two dice and also there are no flushes in Dice Hold’em.
These releases from Betfair should appeal to a broad range of players covering as they do new and interesting versions of the popular base games.
