## Rules

1. Two ordinary six-sided dice are used, one red and one blue.
2. The following types of bets are available:
• Which die will be higher or a tie.
• Winning number of each individual die as well as the combination of the two.
• Odd or Even for each individual die as well as the sum of both dice.
• Over or Under 3.5 for each individual die and over or under 3.5 to 9.5, by ones, for the sum of both dice.
3. For bets that have a 50% chance of winning, the win is 1.9. Most pays are such that the return is 95% if it can be achieved while keeping the win one decimal place. The return is never below 93.75%. Wins are always on a "for one" basis.
