Hot Hand

Introduction

Hot Hand is a set of three side bets, similar to the Small, Tall, and All bets, which win if a group of numbers are rolled before a total of seven. The game debuted at the Jack casino in Cincinnati in March 2019.

Rules

  1. The Flaming Four bet pays 70 to 1 if the shooter rolls a total of 2, 3, 11, and 12 before a total of seven.
  2. The Sizzling Six bet pays 12 to 1 if the shooter rolls a total of 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10 before a total of seven.
  3. The object of the Hot Hand bet is to roll a 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 before a total of seven. If this is accomplished, then winning bets shall pay 80 to 1. If 9 out of 10 of these totals are achieved before a seven, then winning bets shall pay 20 to 1.
