Snake Eyes is SKYCITY Darwin's newest table game. It’s fast, exciting and fun to learn. Have a go and you’ll soon see why it’s so popular.

What is the objective of the game?
Snake Eyes is a game played with two dice which are thrown by a player known as the ’Shooter’. The aim of the game is to correctly predict the total or combination of the dice before they are rolled.
How it works
Bet on any of the totals or combinations that you think will appear on the dice after they are rolled. The Dealer will invite you to “place your bets” at which time you should place your chips within the desired betting area(s) marked on the table. If you cannot reach a betting area, the Dealer will be happy to assist. The odds payable will be displayed on the layout at the table.
You can bet on the total value of both dice, a specific way the total will be rolled and/or as few or as many areas as you like. When all bets have been placed, the Dealer will call “no more bets” and then pass the dice to a Player with a bet on the table to act as the Shooter.
The Shooter will continue to roll the dice until they no longer wish to be the Shooter, roll a 7 or no longer have an active bet on the table.
If you are invited to be the Shooter, both dice must be picked up in one hand and thrown so that they reach the opposite end of the table. After each roll, the Dealer will call the result and then clear any losing bets before paying out any winning bets.
Some bets are Multiroll bets as indicated in red on the layout at the table. Multiroll bets may remain in play for a number of rolls before they win or lose. At any time between rolls and before the Dealer calls “no more bets” or a total of 7 is rolled, a Multiroll bet may be removed by the Player who placed it or alternatively left in play for the next roll.
There are a few variations when you bet. Please refer to the actual odds displayed on the layout at the table..
A: Field Bet: Single Roll bet wins on a total of 2 or ‘Snakes Eyes’ (pays 3-1) or 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 or 12 (pays 1-1)
B: Big 5, 6 or 8: Multiroll bet wins if a total of 5, 6 or 8 is rolled before a total of 7 is rolled (pays 1-1)

D: Hardways: Multiroll bet wins if the dice combination is 2-2, 3-3, 4-4 or 5-5 (a ‘Hard 4, 6, 8 or 10’) before a total of 4, 6, 8 or 10 is rolled in any other combination (the ‘Easy Way’) or a total of 7 is rolled (pays 6-1 on a Hard 4 or 10 and 8-1 on a Hard 6 or 8)
