Encyclopedia

grand hazard

gambling game with dice from which chuck-a-luck evolved. In the United States the game is sometimes mistakenly called chuck-a-luck. Grand hazard is sometimes known just as hazard (especially in casinos), but it should not be confused with the considerably older European game of hazard, from which the dice game craps evolved. The game is also closely related to sic bo. Grand hazard is played in various American and European casinos and gambling houses.
