U.K.-based gaming equipment maker TCS John Huxley Ltd showed at Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia 2017 a proof of concept product it is developing on behalf of casino operator Las Vegas Sands Corp.
“Gameball” (pictured) is a baccarat game – but using 12-sided dice that are agitated in six ball-like structures – without the use of a dealer.
“Gameball is a development with the [Las Vegas] Sands group,” said Rebecca Kingswell, managing director for Asia Pacific at TCS John Huxley.
She added: “It’s their [LVS’s] concept and intellectual property. It’s a spinning device using 12-sided dice so that each side of the dice is a card face.”
Three balls in the machine represent the player’s cards, and three balls those for the banker.
“The results are all read via Bluetooth rather than the camera reading system that is typically used for dice devices,” Ms Kingswell stated.
Within each ball-like structure, are five colour-coded ‘pockets’ in which each dice can land in any one game. Three levels of jackpot prize are available for certain combinations of pocket colour and dice value.
“Later on we will use the Gameball platform for other dice games such as perhaps sic bo,” added Ms Kingswell.
