Three Dice Celo

Post by 22Inside » Mon May 29, 2017 7:32 pm

Just saw something about this game that Foxwoods is apparently introducing, and having some sort of upcoming tournament for. in June Seems rater complicated, but boiled down it feels like a game of Yahtzee on a craps-like layout.

It's a great game. If you win they send you home with a short, black rapper.

Actually, it's not that complicated. Remember, it's a Chinese game and the Chinese do not generally like games with complicated odds. They are high on even money bets. Bet $10 - Win $10. Celo (we'd probably call is "See Low") is somewhat reminiscent of High Low dice (bird cage game). In this case its all about rolling three dice and scoring the LOW numbers - 4-5-6. I'm assuming they're offering the "bankers" version of the game where the banker (house) rolls the dice first. A 4-5-6 is an automatic win. There are several combinations that are automatic losses. Then there are other combinations that become a "point" that the player then gets a chance to roll for a win. So bets are either automatic wins, automatic losses, or decided as a point. The house has about a 2.8% edge on "instant" decisions (win / loss) and about a 8.4% edge on point decisions. Hint. It is not a game for you and me. Like Pai Gow tiles, it's geared toward bringing in more Asian players.
