Kitsune Bakuchi is a dice game from Japan in which a player tries to roll three dice with the same number on them. If the player succeeds, he or she wins four times the amount wagered. The term literally means "fox gambling."

The true odds of Kitsune Bakuchi are 36:1, if 1-1-1, 2-2-2, 3-3-3, 4-4-4, 5-5-5 and 6-6-6, then 216/6 = 36 that is 36/1 or 36:1
