   The temporary provisions of this Chapter 623b added September 3, 2021, effective September 4, 2021, expire September 4, 2024, 51 Pa.B. 5607, unless otherwise noted.

§ 623b.1. Hot Roller Craps.

 (a)  The layout for a Craps table shall be submitted to Bureau of Gaming Operations and approved in accordance with §  601a.10(a) (relating to approval of table game layouts, signage and equipment). The layout shall:

   (1)  Comply with the requirements in §  623a.2 (relating to Craps and Mini-Craps tables; physical characteristics).

   (2)  If the certificate holder offers Hot Roller Craps:

     (i)   No more than 16 areas designated for the placement of Hot Roller wagers. The Hot Roller wager areas must be located around the perimeter of the layout, corresponding to player positions at the table, and sequentially numbered in a clockwise direction with the area numbered 1 being located immediately to the left of the boxperson.

     (ii)   A designated area of the layout for the relocation and identification of all Hot Roller wagers placed by players. The designated area must be located in front of the boxperson and contain numbered areas which correspond to the location of the numbered areas described in subparagraph (i).

     (iii)   A designated area of the layout for the placement of marker buttons with the following:

       (A)   A number 4 showing a 1 and 3 dice and a 2 and 2 dice.

       (B)   A number 5 showing a 1 and 4 dice and a 2 and 3 dice.

       (C)   A number 6 showing a 1 and 5 dice, a 2 and 4 dice, and a 3 and 3 dice.

       (D)   A number 8 showing a 2 and 6 dice, a 3 and 5 dice, and a 4 and 4 dice.

       (E)   A number 9 showing a 3 and 6 dice and a 4 and 5 dice.

       (F)   A number 10 showing a 4 and 6 dice and a 5 and 5 dice.

     (iv)   The payout odds for the Hot Roller wager.

 (b)  A Hot Roller wager may be made only prior to the come out roll and may not be reduced, increased or removed until resolved in accordance with subsection (g). A Hot Roller wager shall be made by placing value chips or plaques on the appropriate area of the layout. Verbal Hot Roller wagers may not be accepted. The Hot Roller wager shall have no bearing on any other wagers made by a player.

 (c)  After placing a Hot Roller wager, the dealer shall place each player’s wager in the corresponding designated area in front of the boxperson where the wagers shall remain until they are either collected or paid.

 (d)  With each throw of the dice, the dealer shall place a marker button in the area of the table layout containing the corresponding depiction of the dice which were just thrown. For example, if a shooter throws a 1 and 3, the dealer shall place the marker button in the box on the table layout that contains a 1 and 3 dice located below the number 4.

 (e)  Marker buttons shall be maintained by the boxperson or dealers at the Craps table and must be visually distinguishable from and have a diameter different than any authorized value chip utilized in the licensed facility.

 (f)  Once all dice combinations for a specific number on the layout are thrown, the dealer shall place a marker button on the corresponding number combination. For example, if a shooter throws a 1 and 3 then throws a 2 and 2, the dealer shall place a marker button on the number 4.

 (g)  All Hot Roller wagers shall be settled when a shooter throws a 7. A Hot Roller wager shall win if at least two different number combinations are thrown by the shooter before a 7 is thrown and shall lose if the shooter throws a 7 on the come out roll or if fewer than two different number combinations are thrown by the shooter before a 7 is thrown. For example, if a shooter throws the two ways to make a 4 (marker buttons have been placed on the 1 and 3 and the 2 and 2), the two ways to make a 5 (marker buttons have been placed on the 2 and 3 and the 4 and 1) and both ways to make a 9 (marker buttons have been placed on the 2 and 6 and the 4 and 5) and then throws a 7, all players who placed a Hot Roller wager shall be paid out for an Any 3 Number Combination.

 (h)  Winning Hot Roller wagers shall be paid at the payout odds contained in one of the following paytables selected by the certificate holder in its Rules Submission filed in accordance with §  601a.2 (relating to table games Rules Submissions):

Outcome Paytable A Paytable B
