Dice game, most popular in American gambling houses. Any number may
play. Each person in turn may, as the shooter, cast two matched dice
in attempting to roll a winning combination.
Before his first throw the shooter puts up a stake, and the other players
fade it, i.e., bet against the shooter up to the amount of the stake.
The shooter must withdraw any part of his stake that is not faded. If
he wins, he may continue to shoot and bet again, as much or as little
as he wants; or he may give up the dice. If the shooter loses, the other
players take away double the amount they faded. The other players also
may bet among themselves as to whether the shooter will win or lose in
the next series of throws or whether certain numbers or combinations
will appear. In some games, such as bank craps , players may bet only
against the house.
