Hi Lo games are offered by software studios such as WagerWorks and Playtech. They’re fixed odds games. They are very simple – the player only needs to guess if the next random number generated is going to be lower or higher than the previous one – so they often have interesting themes to be more attractive.
Hi Lo Classic from WagerWorks is considered the original game of this genre. You wager 10 to 100 credits. A random number under 50 is generated. If it’s close to 49 then the payouts are higher if you bet on the next number being higher than this one, because it’s less likely. If you guess correctly, you get additional payouts, and if you don’t, you lose out. In the next round you can collect the winnings or go “all or nothing”. If the amount is more than twice the original wager, you can also collect half of it and bet the other half.
Mel’s Hi Lo Golf is another game by WagerWorks. The number is displayed when the golf ball in the theme lands on the ground and stops rolling.
The numbers can also be generated by dice or cards. For example in Genie’s Hi Lo created by Playtech you guess the next card – not just the number, but also the color and the rank. The payout is significantly higher when you guess more than one aspect.
Rollercoaster Dice, also by Playtech, uses two dice to generate numbers. Correct guesses don’t usually mean payouts. You might need to make as many as 5 correct guesses before winning the wagers and betting on the next level.
You can play Hi Lo games in WagerWorks casinos (for example Virgin Casino) and in Playtech ones (such as Casino Del Rio, Omni Casino and Casino Tropez).
