Two of my biggest pet peeves about online gambling is that nobody in the industry seems to know anything about gambling rules and norms. The second is truly awful customer support. The vast majority of the time you will get no useful answer, if you get an answer at all. Usually you will get a link to their game rules, which may very well not answer the question or answer is incorrectly. Sometimes I've been given links to my own site.

I would like to do an analysis of the game Poker Dice found at the Pobeda casino. The link will take you to a demo game. I've analyzed the Poker Dice game by Gaming Technology years ago. However, the one using 1x2 Gaming software adds a couple hands -- a Golden Royal and a Golden Straight.

Game rules don't say what any of the hands are, even the common ones like a full house. So, I wrote to the casino as follows:

Subject: Poker Dice

Hello,

In the attached screenshot you will see that a "golden royal" pays 50x and a "golden straight" pays 35x.

My question is what are those wins?

Thank you,

Michael Shackleford



Here is the image I attached.



Here is their reply:

What kind of game it ? You have to play Online Casino Pobeda ? Like us on your site to stay ?



Who wrote that, Borat?

So, I try another another Email address to the casino, keeping things simple and putting the game name in the body of the message.

Hello,

In the game Poker Dice, how does one achieve a Golden Royal or Golden Straight.

Thank you,

Michael Shackleford



Here is the answer.

Hello!
Throw off you a link to the official story about this game, there are rules of the game

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poker_dice



I wrote back saying the link doesn't say what a Golden Royal or Golden Straight are. It is at this point they go dead silent on me, as usual when I pin them into a question they can't answer by just throwing a link at me.

Can anybody else feel my pain?

Does anybody know what a Golden Royal or Golden Straight are?

Thank you for listening to my gripe.

Hehe... In this context, a "Golden" Royal is a Royal Flush. A "Golden" Straight is a Straight Flush.

But the dice have no suits, except the ace is always in spades, and they already have pays for low and high straights.

When you play some dice will turn a gold color. I thought this following would have been a golden Royal, but was just a high straight.

Good work, Sherlock! You seem to be playing on a different device than me as my interface looks different. Nevertheless, I played 25 rolls, for a total of 125 dice seen. In that sample, I counted 24 gold dice. However, sometimes it was hard to tell, especially with the face cards.

I'll have to see if JB can view the code to see how it's programmed.

I think that a golden royal/straight has the same relationship to a normal royal/straight as a golden shower has to a normal shower.

Wiz-
This is pretty typical as I'm
Sure you know-
I pinned two casinos down on basic errors and ended up getting stonewalled

On one casino it wouldn't let me double on a-9. Because the computer recognized it as 20

And on another for years on caribsports their pai gow game was not programmed right when there was a joker - I basically was told
If I don't like the rules don't play because I am played my at my own risk

According to this:
Quote:


• Golden Royal (A high straight with the symbols in ascending order)
• Golden Straight (A low straight with the symbols in ascending order)

Does the "Golden" win apply to dice ordered from Right-to-Left as well as Left-to-Right?
