How to play Chuck-A-Luck

Chuck-A-Luck is a lively game where three dice tumble in a spinning cage and you place wagers on how many dice will come up with your chosen number when the cage stops spinning. The exciting game of Chuck A Luck is a very entertaining dice game that brings together the simple bets of Craps and Lucky Dice

Chuck-A-Luck is very popular at wedding receptions, general celebrations and fundraising events as It's fun and easy to learn, so beginners pick up the rules of play in minutes.

There are three dice and they are tumbled together in an hour-glass shaped cage that spins around it's horizontal axis. Players place bets by moving chips into various boxes on the table.

The cage cannot start spinning until at least one bet has been placed on the board. The Dealer will announce ‘No more bets!’ and all bets placed are then frozen, awaiting the out- come of the Dealers tumbling the dice.

Several seconds later the cage stops spinning and the dice come to rest at the bottom of the cage. The resulting numbers are taken off the top face of each dice to determine the winning bets.

Our Chuck-A-Luck table offers five different ways to make bets:

  • Numbers Bet
  • Field Bet
  • High Bet (Over 10)
  • Low Bet (Under 11)
  • Jackpot—all three dice showing the same number

Numbers Bets

If you place a bet on any of the six numbered boxes in the "Numbers Bet" area (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6) you will win according to how many of the 3 dice come up with that number.

So, if all three dice come up with the number 4, any bet on the Number 4 bet would pay 10 to 1. You can bet on as many individual Numbers as you like.

All of the remaining four bet types are based on the sum of the Numbers showing on the 3 dice. Thus, a result with a 5, a 2 and a 4 would yield a point total of 11. Point totals can range from 3 (triple 1's) to 18 (triple 6's).

Field Bets

If you place your wager in the "Field Bet" area then you are betting that all three dice will add up to one of the numbers featured on the Field. It doesn't matter where on the Field you place your chips. If the point total of the 3 dice adds up to any one of the numbers shown on the Field, you will be paid 1:1 on your wager.

  • High Bet (Over 10). If you place chips in the High box, then you are wagering that the sum total of the 3 dice will be greater than 10. The payoff is 1:1 unless there is a high Triple (12, 15 or 18), in which case the High bet loses.
  • Low Bet (Under 11). If you place chips in the Low box, then you are wagering that the sum total of the 3 dice will be less than 11. The payoff is 1:1 unless there is a low Triple (3, 6 or 9), in which case the Low bet loses.
  • There are 108 possible combinations of the 3 dice that add up to Under 11 and over 10 and only 3 of them are Triples.
  • Jackpot Bets placed on ‘Jackpot’ only win if all three dice show the same number (e.g. all ‘3’s) and are paid at thirty to one (30:1). However, the House wins if the Triple is all ‘1’s or all ‘6’s.

Chuck a Luck is especially enjoyed by children and older family members at our events and celebrations and is a very simple alternative to craps.
