First and foremost, the game is live, which is not particularly unusual for Pragmatic Play. What is unusual is the nature of new release, which is a far more niche offering compared to the company’s previous entries. Mega Sic Bo is, of course, a live dealer version of the ancient, but well-loved dice game.
The rules of Sic Bo are simple; guess the outcome of 3 rolled dice. But with those simple rules comes a vast array of betting options. 52 betting options, in the case of this contemporary reimagining. In Mega Sic Bo, players are given the option to put down bets on the 52 options, though are not limited to just a single bet per round. Multiple options can be covered, allowing for a vast, exciting range of possibilities.
But Pragmatic Play didn’t stop there, adding a selection of betting options that aren’t seen in any of their previous Live casino titles. A unique set of random options are generated for every round, further increasing engagement. Some of these options will even be granted all new Mega Multipliers, which, if a success, can award up to 1,000x the original bet.
Add to this the Mega Lucky Combinations, which also enhance payouts, and it starts to become clear just how imaginative and unique Mega Sic Bo is.
Lana Bleichyk, casino operating manager at Pragmatic Play, shared a few thoughts on the new game. She confirmed that Sic Bo is already an incredibly popular game in many regions but explained that by adding Mega Multipliers and other unique betting options, popularity would surely soar to new heights.
She went on to stress that, with Mega Sic Bo now part of the company’s offering, the goal of building a portfolio that was a unique conjunction of cultures had now finally been achieved. She concluded by saying that she hoped, above all else, that the title would garner a lot of appreciation from the gambling industry at large.
The new title, along with Auto-Roulette released earlier in the year, demonstrate without question that Pragmatic Play are a force to be reckoned with in the iGaming world.
