It's adequate. Most of the rewards can be earned without much of an investment.

 

Issues DL should fix:

 

  1. The randomizer. The actual results vs. what should statistically happen are almost as ridiculous as DL's Blackjack. I've been burned on 6/8 free odds (pass line) bets way too often.
  2. The timer for new bets needs to be locked once the current shooter has pressed R2. When new people access the table, the countdown can be reset to 20 seconds.
  3. The roll procedure needs to be added to the instructions (including the clockwise rotation). There should also be a unique sound that plays when you become the shooter. An animated picture of dice would be a nice feature, but it's probably asking for too much.
  4. HUD Bug: If the player has made a bet on a hand after the come out roll, "Remove Bet" appears immediately after the dice have landed. This happens before bets can be altered for the next hand. It does not occur when you are the shooter.

Thanks for the feedback!

 

We are going to make some changes based on the feedback we've been receiving, and we'll be rolling out an update in the near future to improve the craps experience. Smiley Happy

 

In terms of your first suggestion the way the dice work is first we randomize the orientation of the dice (this is to mimic the player rolling the dice in their hand). Then the player chooses the power and direction of the throw (to increase the randomness.) Once the player throws the dice everything is then left up to Home's physics.

That sounds like it'd be pretty effective- thanks for the details!

Any chance you can increase the table maximum? If you are betting the pass line and come bets with full odds and you are on a 5x multiplier, even when betting the minimum of $10 you can only play full odds on two come bets. The situation is even worse when playing don't pass and don't come; there is no way to get full value on your bets when you can only put 200 chips on the table.

I really enjoyed my time so far with craps. I have never played before, so I can't compare it with other experiences, but I feel I have a grasp on the game now, and won some great rewards also. Great addition I feel, and alot of people seemed to agree in world.

If I may make another suggestion, can you add an option to the table that lets us turn on any come bets with odds that are on the table for the come out roll? They should be off by default like they are now, but an option to turn them on would make the game more realistic.

Also, after playing the game some more, I think increasing the table maximum to $300 would be sufficient. A $200 limit when the minimum bet is $10 is way too low. Either the minimum bet needs to be lowered to $5 or the table maximum needs to be increased.

Otherwise, I'm really glad you added craps to the casino. Keep up the good work.

I'm familiar with most Casino games, but Craps is one that I've never managed to really understand exactly what I'm doing. The tips part you have in the info kiosk is helpful, but I'm still trying to fully understand exactly how to play.

 

The gameplay looks good, although its difficult to give proper feedback because I'm still trying to learn the game. I'm sure there are others like me, so anymore explanations you can add to the Info Kiosk would be appreciated, and then we can help others that are at the table that arent too sure.

 

And a small request... we have little club, spade and heart earrings for rewards, but no diamonds. Please could you release some diamond earring rewards as well, thankyou Woman Happy
