§ 625a.5. Procedures for opening and dealing the game.

 (a)  Prior to opening the Sic Bo table for gaming activity, the floorperson assigned to the Sic Bo table shall inspect the following items to insure that each is in proper working order:

   (1)  The electrical device which causes the winning combinations on the Sic Bo table to be illuminated when the numeric value of each die has been entered by the dealer. At a minimum, the inspection shall be completed by entering three numeric values into the electrical device and verifying that all winning combinations are properly illuminated.

   (2)  The automated dice shaker, if one is in use. At a minimum, the inspection shall be completed by operating the device three times and verifying that the dice are being properly tossed.

 (b)  At the commencement of each round of play, the dealer shall either:

   (1)  Place the cover on the manual Sic Bo shaker and shake the Sic Bo shaker at least three times to cause a random mixture of the dice.

   (2)  Activate the automated dice shaker to cause a random mixture of the dice.

 (c)  Prior to revealing the dice in the Sic Bo shaker, the dealer shall announce ‘‘no more bets.’’

 (d)  The dealer shall then remove the cover from the Sic Bo shaker, announce the numeric value of each die and enter the numeric value of each die into the electrical device on the table. The electrical device must illuminate the winning combinations on the Sic Bo layout.

 (e)  After the winning combinations have been illuminated, the dealer shall first collect all losing wagers and then pay off all winning wagers at the odds in §  625a.6 (relating to payout odds). A manual Sic Bo shaker shall remain uncovered until all winning wagers have been paid.

 (f)  After all losing wagers have been collected and all winning wagers have been paid, the dealer shall clear the previously illuminated winning combinations from the table.
