Go for the Section Bonus!
The left side of the board is the side with all of the normal dice rolls. Below the six dice you’ll see a ring with a Section Bonus next to it. If the sum of your points on the left side (all of the regular dice rolls) reaches the number indicated in the ring, you’ll earn the Section Bonus points.
Completing the Section Bonus will instantly reward you with 35 points which is enough to make or break the game for you, so don’t sleep on it!
Go for the biggest combos!
It’s important to remember that you want to save the bigger play slots for even bigger combos. What we mean by this is that say for example you’re going to play something in the 3 of a kind or 4 of a kind slots.
You’re going to want to try to have that play be at least fours or above. Four sixes will get you 24 points in the 4 of a kind slot, and so forth. You can only play something in each slot once, so make sure it’s worth it!
It also should be noted that the special dice rolls – Full House, the Straights, and of course Yahtzee – are worth a fixed amount of points and not dependent upon the dice you use. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prioritize them as well, because they’re just as important! Yahtzee is worth a whopping 50 points!
Know when to lock in and unlock!
Going back to the regular dice rolls for a moment! As we mentioned earlier, the points you earn for playing the regular dice slots is directly equal to the amount of dice you play. For example, if you play three 6 dice, you’ll get 18 points for that six dice slot. Naturally, you’re going to want to lock in any sixes you see.
The key to Yahtzee is to always remember to balance your rolls – know when to lock a dice and when to unlock! Say you roll and end up with two 6 dice, so you lock them in. The next roll you get three 5 dice.
At this point you can either play a Full House if you haven’t already, OR you can unlock the 6 dice and take a chance with your new 5 dice. To choose you should consider what you’ve played already and haven’t played.
Take on the Dice Masters!
If you’re itching for a rapid-fire game, try challenging the game’s Dice Masters, which are essentially computer opponents. These opponents act instantly, so you can have a full game on the spot.
Dice Masters can be found in the Showdowns – challenges events that come and go throughout the week. Beating Dice Masters rewards you with experience points and other goodies, so we recommend honing your skills on them to practice for real opponents!
Keep playing for rewards!
The cool part about New Yahtzee is that you’ll be rewarded for just playing the game! Beating any of the Dice Masters in a challenge will net you a reward, and simply scoring enough points across all modes will get you a nice reward as well.
These rewards usually consist of experience points plus scratchers which can net you even more experience points! Keep playing!
