Rules

The player rolls two dice and then picks whether the next throw will be higher or lower. If a roll is six or less the choices will be (1) the last number or less, and (2) more than the last number. If a roll is seven the choice will be (1) seven or less, and (2) seven or more. If a roll is eight or more the choices will be (1) the last number or more, and (2) less than the last number.

If the player ever makes an incorrect guess he immediately loses.

If the player makes it to 4 correct picks he may either collect 4 times his bet and stop, or keep playing.

If the player makes it to 6 correct picks he may either collect 7 times his bet and stop, or keep playing.

If the player makes it to 8 correct picks he may either collect 13 times his bet and stop, or keep playing.

If the player makes it to 10 correct picks he will collect 30 times and the game will be over.

Analysis

Unlike Around the World when the player reaches a stopping point he does not go forward with a random draw but keeps the last total thrown.

On the first stopping point, after 4 correct picks, the player should stop if the last throw was a 5 to 9, otherwise keep playing.

On the second stopping point, after 6 correct picks, the player should stop if the last throw was a 6 to 8, otherwise keep playing.

On the third stopping point, after 8 correct picks, the player should stop if the last throw was a 6 to 8, otherwise keep playing.

In the screenshot above I had a 10 at the first stopping point so I kept playing. At the second stopping point I had a 7 and chose to stop, collecing a win of 7 times my bet.
