Craps Hybrid

Roll to Win Craps is a semi-autonomous craps game where players throw live dice onto a table-length LED display. Aruze Gaming uses proprietary technology that allows players to visualize all game play on a table surface that mimics the felt feel familiar to traditional players. Operators will be able to choose a traditional look for their playing field, or a variety of eye-catching animations for a more youthful player base.

The integration of bill acceptors, ticket printers and player tracking makes this product straddle the line between traditional table games and full ETGs, and the table boasts terminals for up to 10 players at a time. The player terminals are equally spaced around the table, recreating the same feeling of camaraderie, player interaction and shared thrills of a regular craps table.

All bets are placed electronically on 21.5-inch LCDs, and each bet is immediately reproduced in an animation as the bets show up on the layout. Players will likely be familiar with the betting layout, which follows Aruze’s popular Shoot to Win Craps electronic table game. Additionally, a help menu targeted toward novice craps players will help guide those players new to the game.

One live dealer is required to entertain the players, but traditional staffing needs are reduced from three to one, depending on property and regulatory policies. As the shooter throws the dice, the dealer gathers the dice and is responsible for electronically entering the result of the roll on a dealer terminal.

When the dealer enters the roll, all information is instantly displayed on all player terminals and on the digital layout, payouts are made, and the history of the game is refreshed and made visible on an LED wall inside the game and on a 46-inch vertical LCD monitor. The electronic betting and layout features allow the dealers to focus on customer service, stickwork and oversight of player actions. Additional benefits include reduced time between rolls, enhanced game security, and the potential for increasing rolls per hour. Another major benefit of the product is the ability to offer advertising space on the table. An LED wall has been designed along the interior of the table where operators can choose to advertise internal events or sell external advertising.
