The Under Over game is a dice game played at various festivals. The object of the game is to predict whether the dice will roll to a total of under 7 or over 7 or at 7.

Game Setup[edit]

The game is typically played with 2 wooden dice. The game attendant then drops the dice in the dice chute.

How to Play[edit]

A player typically places a wager on one of three spaces. These spaces are:

  • Under 7 (Usually pays 1-1)
  • Over 7 (Usually pays 1-1)
  • 7 (Usually pays 4-1)

For instance if you bet one dollar on under and the dealer rolls under, you gain a dollar as well as getting your dollar back. If the dealer rolls a seven and you bet on it, you make four dollars.

Once all the bets have been placed the attendant closes the betting board with a wire screen and then puts the dice through the chute. Players then get paid accordingly.

Variations[edit]

Some times, the game uses foam dice and players throw 2 of them in the middle.

Other times, two balls are thrown into a giant wheel consisting of twelve spaces of numbers ranging from 1-6. No wire fence is used to block the bets.
