  Miracle Mill’s Yatzy Online meets the iPad

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Yatzy Online is a new dice game brought by Miracle Mill that focuses on allowing players to enjoy the full benefit of playing with friends and family on Apps designed for Facebook, Android and iOS.

With the latest update already in the iTunes App Store, Yatzy lovers can now enjoy the app on the iPad and the iPad Mini, as well as the rest of the iOS devices family – completely free of charge. Yatzy Online offers full compliance with all three generations of the tablet device and the Mini version that Apple presented a few months ago.

Additionally, the popular dice game is now available in two more languages, French and Swedish, making the game much closer to these two cultures that have a longstanding tradition in playing this game.

Miracle Mill’s Yatzy Online was presented last month on Facebook, iOS and Android, offering a real time Yatzy experience on all platforms. The producer announced that they would soon support even more platforms in order to meet the increasing interest by the Yatzy enthusiasts worldwide.

All Yatzy Online apps support the three major variations of Yatzy – 5 dice International version, 5 dice Scandinavian Version, as well as a 6 dice version of the classic board game.

The Yatzy Online Apps promise to revolutionize the concept of online head to head dice games by allowing players to play head to head games regardless which platform or device they use – Facebook, iOS or Android.

Furthermore, all apps support multiple ongoing games, meaning that all players can play several online games that are available to them in real time on all supported devices – they can start a game on Facebook and then pick it up later on their mobile device on the go.

For the rookies, Yatzy is a social game that is played with five or six dice, between 2 to 4 players. Each player takes his turn and has 3 rolls at each go. At each turn, he can roll all the dice or keep as many dice as he likes from the previous rolls, in order to get the combination he wants. The one player that has the most points at the end of the game wins the game.

Miracle Mill would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We hope that you will enjoy the holidays with friends and family in good health and high spirits!
