12/10/09 – Skill gaming fans will find a new and advanced version of the popular game Yatzy now available at Bwin.com, branded ‘Maxi Yatzy'.
The game is a revved-up version of the original game and now offers six dice as a key feature as well as several other new elements.
The main aim of Maxi Yatzy, as in predecessor Yatzy, is to score as many points as possible within the twenty different categories on the score pad. In every round, the player has one starting roll with all six dice and two optional rolls. After any roll, the player is allowed to put their score onto the score pad.
Once the player has entered the score, a new round begins and any remaining rolls are carried over to the next round. The time limit for the game is six minutes, and the action is played over twenty rounds, one for each score category. The final score from the score pad, multiplied by 100, plus the remaining time bonus, makes up the overall final score.
Product manager for multiplayer games at Bwin, Caroline Westholm says: "Yatzy is already one of the most popular SkillGames on our site and we are therefore very pleased to introduce the new edition, Maxi Yatzy, to our users.
