    Craps Live is Live!

    The much anticipated Craps Live from Evolution is now taking bets (from today at Leo Vegas, others sure to add in coming days/weeks)

    Been waiting a long time for this one. A very popular game on the floor of bricks and mortar casinos in the US especially, craps has taken a long time to transition to live dealer format. Understandable I guess, given the fact that in the game of craps players ('the Shooter') usually launch the dice.

    With live dealer games played remotely, this aspect of the game does present a challenge.

    Anyway, the challenge has been solved.

    With a dice launching contraption of course! Does the job of the Shooter just nicely.

    I'll get more up on the nuts and bolts of how to play Craps Live in due course (ie after I learn to play craps...never played!), but in the meantime just wanted to post that the game was now live (because the PR from Evo will come out in a few weeks time) and share a few pics.

    As a lead in, and for other Craps newbies like me, Evolution do their usual nice job of holding your hand pre game launch with a quick fire tutorial of the bets, should you need it...

    Go straight to the table, or Learn Craps

    If you want to learn, just select a bet type and up pops an overview...

    For those wanting to get straight down to business, here's the table complete with the familiar Evolution chip selector to place bets (UI consistent with all other Evo games)...

    And the dice launch contraption...or The Flinger as I like to call it (sure it has a proper name).

    It gets manually loaded by the dealer. Yes, they have an active role in this game. Loading the flinger primarily it seems, as well as providing commentary and bet explanation to players.

    Real dice, tossed into a real craps table to produce a completely random outcome (assuming the die aren't loaded...I'll get that in before the conspiracy theorists do )

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to see if I can learn to play craps without the education costing too much.

    I'll get something up in the blog after that

    because the PR from Evo will come out in a few weeks time
    True to form, the PR has just been released. Nothing in there that we don't already know, but here are a couple fo grabs from it anyway.

    Evolution has announced the launch of the world’s first ever online Live Craps game, set in an authentic underground, speakeasy-style studio
    From Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter...
    Craps completes the Evolution portfolio in terms of offering every game you can find in a land-based casino. Developing the game and capturing the unique excitement of the Craps table, but in an online setting, was a complex project. The team has done a phenomenal job and we now have a fantastic finished product that I know will thrill Craps enthusiasts in the US, Europe and beyond, as well as attracting legions of new fans.

    We understand that not everyone knows how to play Craps. That’s why the game has both an ‘Easy Mode’ and a simple online interactive tutorial that clearly explains how to play and enjoy the game. Craps has been our most requested new game by both players and operators for years – now it’s finally here. I think players are going to love it.

    By the way, Evolution have also added to the First Person RNG game range with First Person Craps.

    Nothing exciting here...100% computer generated imagery and outcomes. RNG Craps tables have been operating online for 2 decades now.

    The one notable difference on this table to other online craps games ... the GO LIVE button which switches you over to the live dealer version of the game when you want real dice.

    ...as in all our First Person games, the First Person Craps user interface includes our unique ‘GO LIVE’ button, where with one click players are taken on a unique journey through the in-game portal directly to the live dealer Craps game, to try out their new found knowledge within the excitement of a live game.
    First Person Craps came out around the same time as the live dealer version. Actually noticed it before the live dealer version, and for a brief moment thought this was Evolution's long awaited craps offering! It was with much relief that I realised the live dealer version was also available.
