Dreidel Game Instructions
In an online dreidel game, each player takes turns spinning a four-sided top called a dreidel, which has Hebrew letters on each side representing different outcomes. The dreidel lands on one of four letters: Nun, Gimel, Hei, or Shin. If it lands on Nun, the player does nothing and the turn passes to the next player. If it lands on Gimel, the player takes everything from the pot. A Hei result allows the player to take half of the pot, rounding up if necessary. Finally, if the dreidel lands on Shin, the player must add a portion to the pot, typically the same amount as the initial ante. The game continues until one player has won all the pot or a predetermined number of rounds have been played.
