Horrible! RUN AWAY!
This is a horrible game: full of bugs, and is not intuitive at all. I just wasted $3. It's a real shame because I bought the iPad version a while back, and it's wonderful - best craps game out there. But this version - I guess it's for MacBook - is nothing like that, even though it's the same vendor. In this version, I don't think it's possible to place a come bet, every third roll is a mis-roll, and it places random bets for you without your permission. Also, it crashes A LOT. Again, the iPad version is awesome: no bugs and very intuitive. I wish it were available for the MacBook.
Slow as a Mac Plus, doesn't fit on 13 inch screens; No longer runs on 10.6
Works good 33% of the time; crashes if you Roll the dice before the dealer has finished talking; crashes if you click the Roll Dice too many times in a row (ie: double click the dice, etc) 13 inch Macbooks have to minimize dock to see the full screen; game performance gets terrible after a couple of minutes (takes a long time (and progressively longer) for the dealer to announce the roll.
Random Algorithm is cursed and predictably so. You will get tons of rolls where you crap out on a 7 after 3-4 rolls.
Also, if you roll two 7's in a row on your ComeOut roll, the 3rd roll will always ALWAYS be 2 or 3; bank lots of cash on it! ;)
UPDATE: Window resizing added to latest patch, but no longer runs on 10.6; 10.7 only!
So now I can't play it, period. I have a black macbook and can't use 10.7.
Why are the requirements so high for such a small simple game?!
Several Flaws in Play
Several bets are not correctly implemented, for example if I have money on the 6 and 8 and I hit my point, on the next come out roll my place bets on the 6 and 8 should be "off". However they stay "on" and when a 7 is rolled (winner on the come out roll) my 6 and 8 place bets are taken away as a loss.
Also there are several glitches and the game can be non responsive at times.
