Abstract

See full text

A method and system for playing a dice game using a pair of dice. A primary player is first established at the beginning of the game. At least one wager is then made from each player establishing that one of a plurality of events will occur with the roll of the dice. The primary player then rolls the pair of dice. The wagers or bets are then resolved based on each roll of the dice. Wagers on at least one area of the game surface designated for wagers that the rolled dice will result in two specific identical numbers or doubles are paid out if the two specific identical numbers are rolled. The winner of this wager is then permitted to roll a single die if this winner also wagered on an area designated for a progressive bet. The progressive pot is paid to the winner if a single die results in a designated number. The game includes a playing surface for playing the game using a pair of dice and chips.
