For those who enjoy fast-paced gaming with numerous fixed odds betting options, “Digit” offers plenty of action in a high-tech format. It’s the digital equivalent of flipping coins, using a simple binary display of zeroes and ones in place of heads or tails.

The Digit game area resembles a control panel that might be found inside a computer, framed on all sides by what appears to be circuitry. Initially, the screen appears to be darkened, except for the buttons at the very bottom of the game area. In the upper left section of the display are three counters that register the digits 0 or 1 at random. To the right of those is the “Payouts” window that shows the odds for each wager contemplated. Directly below the Payouts is an area that displays the “Outcome” and “Total” for each game completed.

Across the middle of the game area runs a message display. It offers instructions and comments as well as a report on winnings. Directly below the message display are the bet buttons. Moving the cursor over these will clarify the bet types and odds, as displayed in the Payouts window and in the message display. Then, at the very bottom of the game area are the Controls, including the “Stake” selector and the “OK/Collect” button.

To begin a game of Digit, the player must first select an amount to wager. This is accomplished by using the +/- toggles to the right of the Stake selector. Available bets range from €1 to €25. Once an amount has been chosen, clicking on “OK” will activate the game, causing the entire display to light up brightly. The message display will read, “Select a bet to play!”

Next, the player must decide what wager to place by using the four bet buttons marked “Zero,” “One,” “Odd” and “Even.” Only one button can be selected per draw. Choosing Zero is a bet on a “0” coming up on at least one of the three counters. It pays out at odds of 1.10X. Choosing to bet on One is a wager that a “1” will come up on at least one of the three counters. It also pays out at odds of 1.10X.

Betting on Odd is a wager that the total of the three digits will result in an odd value, either 1 or 3. If successful, this bet will pay out at odds of 1.95X. Betting on Even is a wager that the total of the three digits will result in an even value, i.e. 2. If successful, this bet will pay out at odds of 2.55X. If the total is zero, then the Odd or Even bets lose.

As soon as one of the four bet buttons has been clicked, the binary digits in the counters will begin flashing back and forth between 0 and 1 at random, eventually stopping to display one or the other digit. If the outcome result in a win for the players, the circuits surrounding the display will glow, the amount won will be displayed in the message display and the total amount of winning accumulated will show in the Stake indicator.

The player must next choose whether to gamble again with the winnings or to click on “Collect” and end the game. In the latter case, the screen will dim once again, the winnings will be added to the player’s “Balance” at the top right corner of the screen and the message display will read, “Please select stake then press OK.” But should the player choose to risk the winnings, the Payouts window will display new odds for each bet button based upon the new amount to be wagered.

Note that the number of different results is limited to 8—three totals of 1 (001, 010, 100), three totals of 2 (110, 101, 011), one total of 3 (111) and one total of 0 (000). Likewise, all results will contain both of the digits 0 and 1, except the outcomes 000 and 111. Because Digit is an accumulator game, any winnings are added to the stake and the new amount automatically becomes the stake for the next game, unless the win is collected, which is possible at the end of any winning game.

Other options on Digit include toggles to turn Sound and Music on or off within the pull-down “Options” menu at the top of the screen. Also on that menu is a Turbo switch to help speed up the randomizing of the digits during play.
