The Pennsylvania Code website reflects the Pennsylvania Code changes effective through 51 Pa.B. 1118 (February 27, 2021).

58 Pa. Code § 661a.5. Throw of the dice; invalid roll of the dice.

§ 661a.5. Throw of the dice; invalid roll of the dice.

 (a)  After selecting the Offensive and Defensive Dice, the Quarterback shall throw the three selected dice so that they leave the Quarterback’s hand simultaneously and in a manner which causes the dice to strike the end of the table farthest from the Quarterback.

 (b)  A roll of the dice shall be invalid if any of the dice go off the table or if one die comes to rest on top of the other.

 (c)  The stickperson shall have the authority to invalidate a roll of the dice by calling ‘‘no roll’’ for any of the following reasons:

   (1)  The dice do not leave the Quarterback’s hand simultaneously.

   (2)  Any of the dice fail to strike the end of the table farthest from the Quarterback.

   (3)  Any of the dice come to rest on the chips constituting the bank of chips located in front of the stickperson.

   (4)  Any of the dice come to rest in the dice cup in front of the stickperson or on one of the rails surrounding the table.

   (5)  The use of a cheating, crooked or fixed device or technique in the roll of the dice.

   (6)  The stickperson considers the throw to be improper.

 (d)  A throw of the dice which results in the dice coming into contact with any chips or plaques on the table, other than the bank of chips located in front of the stickperson, is not a cause for a call of ‘‘no roll.’’

 (e)  When the dice come to rest from a valid throw, the stickperson shall at once call out the numbers on the uppermost or skyward sides of the three dice. Only one face on each die shall be considered uppermost or skyward.

 (f)  In the event any of the dice do not land flat on the table (for example, one edge of the die is resting cocked on a stack of chips), the side directly opposite the side that is resting on the chips or other object shall be considered uppermost or skyward. If more than one side of a die is resting on a stack of chips or other object, the roll shall be void and the dice shall be rethrown.

 (g)  In the event of a dispute as to which face is uppermost, the stickperson has discretion to determine which face is uppermost or to order the throw be void and the dice be rethrown.

 (h)  After calling the throw, the stickperson shall collect the dice and bring them to the center of the table. All wagers decided by that throw shall then be settled. The stickperson shall then pass the dice to the Quarterback for the next throw. When collecting the dice and passing them to the Quarterback, the stickperson shall use a stick designed for that purpose.
