Winner: Aruze – Lucky Sic Bo
Aruze Lucky Sic Bo topped the judges' list because of its genuine ability to add excitement and player value to one of Asia's oldest betting games.
In Aruze's game, the highest better per round gets to press a large red button and give the dice one last big hit, in the manner that the person making the highest bet in live table baccarat gets to squeeze cards.
"All other [sic bo] products are just auto bounce after 'last bets call'," explained one of the judges.
"This one gives a bit of player incentive to bet up and makes players feel they have some effect on the outcome Aruze Lucky Sic Bo also has an ante bet side feature that offers a mystery progressive jackpot. It also has minimum bet requirements and separate side bets to the game.
Honourable Mention: IGT Multi-Layer Display Slots
IGT's Multi-Layer Display® (MLD) widescreen upright machines provide an excellent presentational setting for the company's 'REELdepth' 3-D effect reels. IGT's MLD can switch from a video slot game to a 3-, 4-, or 5-reel virtual spinning reel game and back to a video slot game—all on the same G-series MLD machine.
