Dice

Introduction





Dice is a simple game based on the roll of two dice. It is available at Internet casinos using Gamesys software. Every bet in Dice has zero house edge. The catch is that the player must pay a 10% commission on a net win per gambling session.

Rules



The following bets are available based on the roll of two dice:

  • Low — At least one die is a one or two. Pays 4 to 5.
  • Medium — At least one die is a three or four. Pays 4 to 5.
  • High — At least one die is a five or six. Pays 4 to 5.
  • Odd total. Pays 1 to 1.
  • Even total. Pays 1 to 1.
  • Total of 2 to 6. Pays 7 to 5.
  • Total of 7. Pays 5 to 1.

Commission



The player must pay a 10% commission on any net win of a gambling session. A "session" ends after an hour of non-activity and can last no more than 24 hours.

Strategy



Play a while. The more you play, the less the effective house edge after the commission. I also recommend keeping your bet range as narrow as possible.
