The slots in the lower section are based on combinations.
Each slot has a different rule for when you can get points for it and how the score is calculated.
The combinations are mostly based on poker hands and are listed below.
The order of the dice does not matter—the only thing that matters is the numbers.

#### Combinations

Slot |
Rule |

Example |

Three of a kind |
Three (or more) dice with the same number |
Sum of all the dice |
**5**, 3, **5**, **5**, 1 => 19 points |

Four of a kind |

Sum of all the dice |
**3**, **3**, **3**, 5, **3** => 17 points |

Full House |

25 points |
**2**, **2**, **3**, **3**, **2** => 25 points |

Small Straight |
At least four of the dice are in consecutive numerical order (remember that order doesn’t matter) |
30 points |
**3**, **4**, **5**, **6**, 3 => 30 points |

Large Straight |
All five of the dice are in consecutive numerical order (note that the only possible combinations are 1,2,3,4,5 and 2,3,4,5,6; of course the order doesn’t matter) |
40 points |
**2**, **3**, **4**, **5**, **6** => 40 points |

Yahtzee |
All five dice are the same (five of a kind) |
50 points (see Yahtzee section below) |
**2**, **2**, **2**, **2**, **2** => 50 points |

Chance |
Any combination |
Sum of all the dice |
**2**, **2**, **4**, **6**, **1** => 15 points |

#### Special Yahtzee rules

The first time you get a yahtzee in a game it is worth 50 points (if you use it in the yahtzee slot).
If you roll another yahtzee *after* you have already gotten the 50 points (i.e., you didn’t take a zero),
you will get a 100 point bonus.

You can also use additional yahtzees as wildcards on the bottom section **if** you have already filled in the number you rolled on the upper section.
For example, if you have used the 1′s, 3′s, 4′s, and 6′s on the top section and you roll a yahtzee in 5′s, you cannot use it as a wildcard but you could use a yahtzee in 3′s.
Since a yahtzee meets the requirements for a 3 of a kind, 4 of a kind, full house, and chance, it will always give you points in those slots.
Extra yahtzees can be used as wildcards regardless of whether you got any points for the first one.
