I just made a new page for the live dealer game Dice. It should not be confused with the game of the same name by Gamesys.

The rules are pretty simple, five dice are thrown and there are a host of bets on the outcome, like the poker value, total of the dice, number of odds/even, etc.. It can be played for free at betgames.tv.

Please have a look at the new page and let me know your thoughts.

The question for the poll is would you play dice?

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Those house edges are ridiculous! Pass.


Note: In the rules, you have Full house &mash. That should probably be Full house & match.

Also, you listed merely Full House in the math grids.

You may be confusing return with house edge. A 95% return equates to a 5% house edge.

That was actually supposed to be the HTML code for an m-dash (sp?). Thank you for the catch.

Let's give DJTB more credit than that! I'd say those edges are uniformly high and that it is shocking the Wizard of all people would so dismiss them! Some, like 5 of a kind, are so far up in the stratosphere a double check against error is in order!

I feel dice games are obligated to honor the tradition of low HE, at least for some bets.

Yeah, I know,

I wasn稚 confusing anything. But I also wasn稚 exclusively looking at the few bets that are 5% edge.

Sigh, I agree. Not all of the bets have ridiculous edges. Most are, but some are merely bad.

But when you can say of a game that some of the bets aren稚 as bad as playing triple zero roulette, um, you池e not saying much...

The five of a kind bet in that game has a house edge of 61.4%. That bet is worthy of criticism. I think an overall game should be judged mostly by how bad its best bets are.
