Cee-lo (sometimes spelled cilo, celo, c-lo, or cee-low) is a game of chance played with three six-sided dice. The game is stereotypically played in hood settings such as alleys or stoops.
Each game involves two or more players. A bet amount is decided upon and each player puts that amount in the pile or pot. Each person then goes on to roll all three dice at once, and continues to do so until a recognized combination, or number, is rolled.
The most common combination is two of the same number, and a third different number. The value of the roll is the third unique number. The objective is to have the highest valued roll to win. However, there some special combinations:
1 2 3
The lowest possible roll.
4 5 6
The highest possible roll.
If you roll three of the same number, this is known as rolling "trips". All other players must now roll a higher number with trips or 4 5 6 to win.
If two or more players roll the same highest combination, a new round of the game begins between those players. Sometimes each one deposits twice as much money into the pot as he did in the previous round. The rolling process again occurs, with only those left in the game rolling. The game ends once there is a single winner in a round, with all the money in the pot going to them.
