I just came back from a good time in Amsterdam. At the Holland Casino I was surprised to see a new game, Diceball. It was closed at the time but a supervisor nicely introduced me to a dealer who explained all the rules. Dice setters may be interested to know that it is played in a very small elliptical-shaped tub. Only about six feet long.

Please click the link and let me know your thoughts, questions, and especially corrections.

The question for the poll is would you play Diceball?

What did the photon say when he checked into a hotel and the bellman asked if he needed help with his luggage?

No, I'm traveling light

It was or is at the Swiss Casino in Zurich too. I can't see it catching on here due to being too similar to craps but I suppose having at least one dice game in European casinos makes sense. Craps is so complicated to learn that I can see going with something simpler like this.

Seems like a great alternative to craps - for the dealers!

Fewer bets to keep track of, and far fewer payouts rates to remember.

Me? You can have that crappy game. Give me craps!

Yes Wizard,
It is very difficult to get any Dice games going, in European or UK casinos.

The table is also still in Southampton though I don't know how often it opens.

Also of interest may be

If the shooter only makes a "Run" bet, is successful, then leaves, what happens to the "Grand Slam" bets?

Can players choose to turn their place bets "off" at any time?

I thought the UK was considered part of Europe.

I assume somebody else would roll. Same thing could be asked about craps -- what happens if an active shooter just walks off? I think they just pass the dice to the next person and let him finish.

I don't know.
