with three singles (for example: 1, 4, 5), three of the Pair Match bets
will win (in this example: 1&4, 1&5 and 4&5).
If you place a wager on any of the
six numbered boxes in the "Numbers Bet" area at the bottom of the table
layout (the largest die labeled one, two, three, four, five, or six)

many individual Numbers as you like.
