Sports Themed Playtech Arcade Games

Published on: December 11, 2011 

The software provider Playtech offers an excellent collection of arcade games at its online casinos. Many of them are based on different sports. This adds both interest and variety to the games.

Soccer football is the most watched sport globally. Playtech offers two arcade games based on football. The first one is titled Penalty Shoot Out. One of the most exciting moments in a knock out football match is when scores are tied and the teams take penalty kicks to decide the winner. In Penalty Shoot Out the player can pick one of five areas of the goal, each offering different odds. The penalty taker then kicks the ball. If he gets it past the goalie the player wins. The realistic animations are the highlights of this game.

Final Score is an arcade game that closely simulates football sports betting. The player has to first select a European football league and then the home and away teams. Odds are displayed for a number of bets. These include home team winning, draw and away team winning. Odds are also offered for the final scores in each of the above categories and for total goals scored. The special bets include penalties missed and red cards issued. After the bets are placed the match is conducted at high speed with goals, penalties and red cards highlighted. The bets won by the player are paid out as per the odds.

Horse racing is another popular sport that involves betting. Frankie’s Fantastic 7 is an arcade game based on this. It simulates a race between the seven winners that Frankie Dettori rode at Ascot. Different horses have to cover different number of steps to reach the finish line and are accordingly offered odds. The horse movement mechanism is very interesting. For each round each horse is dealt a card and the horse with the highest ranked card moves ahead one step. The horse that reaches the finish line first wins. There is a joker in the deck and if a horse is dealt the joker then it is out of the race. Playtech also offers a video slot game based on this event titled Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven.

Knock Out is a boxing themed Playtech arcade, which is identically structured as Penalty Shoot Out, but has visuals from a boxing bout. The player chooses a boxer and the area on the opponent where he wants to deliver a knock out punch. If the opponent blocks the punch then the player loses his wager. If he is delivers the knock out punch then he is paid according to the odds.

Bonus Bowling is a simple arcade game from Playtech. The player gets two computer simulated throws in a normal bowling alley. Before that he has to predict the score at the end of the two throws. A score between 0 and 3 will double the stake, a score between 4 and 6 will triple the stake, a score between 7 and 9 will multiply the stake 5 times, a Spare will multiply the stake 10 times and a Strike will multiply the stake 25 times. The player places a wager on the selected options, plays the game and receives payouts if he has predicted correctly.

All these sports themed arcade games can be played at Playtech online casinos like Casino Tropez and Omni Casino.
