How to play Dice Duel

If you’re a big fan of dice games or you simply love games of chance, Dice Duel is the next big thing to hit land based casinos – we explain what Dice Duel is, the rules and how to play.

What is Dice Duel?

Dice DuelDice Duel is a luck based dice game that can be found exclusively at Melbourne’s Crown Casino. The aim of the game is to accurately place a bet on whether the Gold or Red dice will show the highest result. There are no strategies or special skills needed to play, making it suited to beginners, experienced players and high rollers.

The equipment used in Dice Duel is very basic, consisting of a table with designated areas for the placement of wagers, and a set of two standard dice marked with numbers one to six, one coloured red and one coloured gold. Two dice cups are used to shake the dice and reveal the results of the game.

Betting options

There are nine different betting options when playing Dice Duel. You can bet on whether the red or gold dice will show the highest result, whether the dice will result in a tie, or you can bet on specific numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 appearing. Placing a bet on specific numbers means you can win regardless of the winning colour. A specific number bet will win if the number is displayed on one or both of the dice.

Placing a tie bet results in a win if both dice display the same result. In the case of a tie, gold and red will stand off, unless the tie result is a 1, in which case both red and gold lose.
