The game name is translated from Chinese as pair of dice, although three dices are used in the modern game process. The third dice is considered to be added to increase the player chances to win and vary the game process and possible bets.

Young virgin had to throw a dice, the result of which decided her fate. 8 or 9 is the best outcome, the girl became a priestess. If 6 or 7 were thrown the girl was free, but banned from any religious activity. If she threw any number less than six, she would die in the sea. In XVI century the baccarat was introduced in France where it has gained its modern rules.
