Have you ever tried your luck on the Red Dog poker game? Well, on January 14, 2022, iSoftBet decided to add this fast-paced card game to its ballooning game catalog. As expected, the main objective is to finish the tournament with the highest number of chips.
According to iSoftBet's Head of Games, Mark Claxton, Red Dog is a straightforward but fast-paced card game that delivers something different and refreshing to players. He said that the game rules are simple to understand, and players should brace up for smooth gameplay with big wins. Is that true? Keep reading!
First and foremost, Red Dog uses a 52-card deck, similar to other card games. Ace is the highest-ranked card in this game, with two being the lowest. Also, the multiplayer version of this game can involve two up to ten players. So, it's nothing new to live casino poker players by all means.
The gameplay starts once gamers place an initial bet. Then, the dealer will draw two cards with center space for the third card. If the third card's value is anything between the first two cards, the bet wins. Remember that the payout is higher if the gap between cards 1 and 2 is smaller.
In the meantime, the bet becomes a push if the first two cards form a pair. Pushing happens if neither hand loses or wins. Or in other words, the player's hand value is the same as the dealer's hand value.
Red Dog is a player-friendly game by all indications. For starters, the minimum and maximum bet limits cater to all budgets. You can catch the action with as little as 0.10 and as much as 100.
RTP-wise, Red Dog stands tall among the best live casino games. This game has a more than average return rate of 97.2%, translating to a 2.8% house edge. Note, however, that the house edge can increase as the number of decks also increases.
Like with the classic poker game, Red Dog players can decide when to raise, stand, or hit. For example, you can raise after the first cards are dealt. In return, this doubles the initial bet and provides a larger win. But it's generally a great idea to raise when the spread is at least 7, as the players have the edge over the house.
Another thing, this card game is fast-paced. Therefore, green hands might find it a bit overwhelming at first. But once you develop an optimal strategy for playing your first two cards, the game is just as simple as it gets.
It's evident that this game aggregator is enjoying a rather stellar year so far. Besides multiple game releases, the company has managed to wrap up important deals to increase its global player appeal and entrance into new markets.
In January, the content aggregator sealed a deal with Gauselmann Group, a German online casino operator. Following the agreement, iSoftBet's high-quality table games and slot machines will be available to German players via the operator's Merkur Spiel brand. Players can now access leading titles like the award-winning Moriarty Megaways, Gold Digger, Lantern and Lions, and Majestic Gold Megaways.
During the same month, iSoftBet inked a deal with United Remote to offer its highly rewarding slot machines across Europe. The deal will see the developer's slot machines become available in United Remote's live casinos like Tigerspin, BetandPlay, Lapalingo, and many others. It's worth noting that United Remote has a massive following in the German iGaming market.
Fast forward to February 2022, iSoftBet announced its intention to dominate the Bulgarian iGaming market after sealing a deal with Kaizen Gaming. Players in this gaming jurisdiction will enjoy the developer's entire collection of titles, including the recently released Red Dog card game. The latest deal strengthens the relationship between the two even further after iSoftBet's previous partnership with Stoiximan in 2019.
On February 28, iSoftBet entered into a cooperation with popular gaming provider BGaming. In this unique collaboration, BGaming's entertaining titles will now distribute via iSoftBet's GAP (Gaming Aggregation Platform). This includes popular slots like Aztec Magic Bonanza, Clover Bonanza, Joker Queen, and many others.
Following the deal, iSoftBet's Chief Commercial Officer, Federica Faggiano, said that the company is excited to work with BGaming and provide their players with the aggregator's innovative titles.
On the other hand, Alexandr Shavel, BGaming's Head of Business Development Department, said integrating iSoftBet will open up more opportunities for the game developer. He exuded confidence that operators under the iSoftBet's aggregation platform will appreciate BGaming's titles with brand-new game features and mechanics.
Overall, iSoftBet is primed for greatness if the latest trend continues. However, live casino players still eagerly await the company's first move into this futuristic industry.
