High Roller™ is an action-packed golf gambling game that is played during your round. The game consists of three specially made dice: A positive die that can reward you for positive shots/scores, a negative die that can penalize you for negative shots/scores, and a regular die that determines the point value of a particular hole. It can be played with 2 or more players, and can also be played as a partners or team game.
How the game is played: Before starting your round, you must determine a point value (dimes, quarters, dollars, etc.). On each hole, the dice are rolled before anyone tees off. At the end of each hole, points are recorded based on how each player did on the hole. For example: if the roll was "par", "3 putt", and "4": each player who makes par or better would receive 4 points, and each player who 3 putts the hole would lose 4 points. The player who scores the most points on the hole becomes the "High Roller", and shakes the dice for the next hole. At the end of the round, the points are totaled and settled accordingly.

Game Variations: Higher Roller
This variation has the potential to add a lot more points to the game. For an action-packed twist, try scoring the game this way: If the roll was "par", "3 putt", and "4": Each player who makes par or better would receive 4 points from ALL the player(s) who did not make par, and each player who 3 putts the hole would lose 4 points to ALL the player(s) who didn't 3 putt.
The player who loses the most points on the hole has the options to "press", or double the points rolled on the next hole. The press must be declared before the dice are rolled.
High Roller Press
The player who loses the most points on the hole has the options to "press", and rolls the point die first to determine the press multiplier (the press can be 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or 6x). Then the High Roller rolls all 3 dice, and the points are set accordingly. The maximum number of points would be 36 (6 points with a 6x press).
