Chuck-a-luck, also known as birdcage, is a dice game that is often played in casinos. It is a variation of the game of sic bo, and is played with three dice that are placed in a cage or container and shaken. Players place their bets on the various possible outcomes, such as the total sum of the dice, or specific numbers that will appear on the dice. The cage is then opened, and the dice are revealed. If the outcome of the dice matches the player's bet, they win the corresponding payout. Chuck-a-luck is a simple and fast-paced game that is popular among casual gamblers and beginners. It is often found in carnivals and fairs, as well as in casinos.
