Fast 3
Introduction
Fast 3 is a dice game by Gameplay Interactive. They have four games going at once. The game is very much like sic bo, where the player bets on the outcome of the roll of three dice. There is a new game every 30 seconds. There are a host of ways to bet, as shown in the rules section below.
The expected return ranges from 64.81% to 88.89%, so be careful about your bet choice, if you must play at all.
Rules
There are a host of different bets, as listed below. The order of the dice never matters. Every 30 seconds there is a new roll of three dice. Wins are on a "for one" basis.
 Specific three of a kind — Player must pick a specific three of a kind, like 555. Pays 181 on exactly that combination only.
 Any three of a kind — Pays 32 on any three of a kind.
 Three consecutive — Pays 8 on any straight (123 to 456)
 Two identical (specific) — Player must pick a specific pair and singleton, for example 335. Pays 60 on exactly the chosen combination only.
 Two identical (group) — Player must pick a specific pair, for example 33. Pays 11 if roll contains the chosen pair and any singleton. For example, if 33 is chosen, player would win on 331, 332, 334, 335, and 336.
 Two different — Player must pick two different numbers, for example 26. Pays 30 if both numbers appear. For example picking 2,6 would win with 126, 236, 246, 256, 226, and 266.
 One number — Player must pick a specific number, like 4. Pays 2.01 if that number appears at least once. For example, if 4 is chosen, then wins would include, but are not limited to, 146, 455, 144, 444.

Strategy
If you must play, the highest return at 88.89% is a tie between any three of a kind and three consecutive. A house edge of 11.11% is rather high, so I would recommend considering other games to bet on.
