58 Pa. Code § 661a.6. Rules of the game; settlement of wagers.

§ 661a.6. Rules of the game; settlement of wagers.

 (a)  Immediately prior to the commencement of each round of play, the dealer shall place the Down Puck on the area of the table layout designated for the 1st Down. The Yard Marker shall be placed on the football field in the 20 yard line circle. The Game Length Puck shall be placed on the area of the table layout designated for Play 1.

 (b)  Prior to the first throw of the dice, each player shall place a wager authorized under §  661a.3(b) or (d) (relating to wagers). Prior to each subsequent roll of the dice, a player may place any single play wager authorized under §  661a.3(d).

 (c)  Each roll of the dice shall determine the result of each down as follows:

   (1)  If the total of the Offensive Dice is greater than the value of the Defensive Die, a gain of yards has occurred. The dealer shall subtract the value of the Defensive Die from the total of the Offensive Dice and move the Yard Marker down the field toward the end zone the total number of yards earned during that down. For example, if the total of the Offensive Dice is 10 and the value of the Defensive Die is 2, the dealer shall move the Yard Marker toward the end zone 8 yards from its previous position on the field. The dealer shall then place the Down Puck on the next down and the Game Length Puck to the next play.

   (2)  If the total of the Offensive Dice is less than the value of the Defensive Die, a penalty has occurred which shall result in the loss of only 1 yard and the loss of the current down. The dealer shall move the Yard Marker back 1 yard from its previous position on the field, place the Down Puck on the next down and the Game Length Puck to the next play.

   (3)  If the total of the Offensive Dice is equal to the value of the Defensive Die, a gain or penalty has not occurred. The dealer shall place the Down Puck on the next down and the Game Length Puck to the next play.

   (4)  If the Quarterback rolls a turnover, the dealer shall announce the turnover and end the game.

   (5)  If the Quarterback rolls a Trips TD, the dealer shall move the Yard Marker to the end zone and end the game.

 (d)  After each down, the dealer shall settle all single play wagers placed in accordance with §  661a.3(d). The value of the dice determines the outcome of single play wagers, not the actual yards moved on the field. The dealer shall then announce the number of downs and the distance to the end zone.

 (e)  The Quarterback shall have three downs to either score a touchdown, Trips TD or earn a 1st & Goal. A 1st & Goal is earned by reaching the 10 yard line. If after three downs:

   (1)  The Quarterback has not scored a touchdown, Trips TD or earned a 1st & Goal, the game ends.

   (2)  The Quarterback has earned a 1st & Goal, the Quarterback has three more downs to score a touchdown or a Trips TD.

 (f)  If the Quarterback:

   (1)  Scores a touchdown or a Trips TD, the dealer shall first collect all Defense Wagers then settle all single play wagers, placed in accordance with §  661a.3(d), and all full game wagers, placed in accordance with §  661a.3(b), with the exception of the Touchdown and Extra Point Wagers. If any player at the table has placed an Extra Point Wager, the Quarterback shall then throw an extra point roll. The dealer shall then pay out winning Touchdown Wagers and settle the Extra Point Wagers.

   (2)  Does not score a touchdown or a Trips TD, the dealer shall first collect all Touchdown and Extra Point Wagers and pay out winning Defense Wagers. The dealer shall then settle all single play wagers, placed in accordance with §  661a.3(d), and the remaining full game wagers placed in accordance with §  661a.3(b).

 (g)  All winning wagers shall be paid in accordance with §  661a.8 (relating to payout odds).
