bwin has today launched a brand-new SkillGame called Maxi Yatzy. The game is an advanced version of the existing game Yatzy, which now offers six dice as a key feature as well as several other new elements.
The main aim of Maxi Yatzy, as in its preceding edition Yatzy, is to score as many points as possible within the twenty different categories on the score pad. Now though, the user can choose from six dice instead of five, as in the classic version. 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. The game 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.
