Two-up Anzac Day
by: David Johnson • 7
Two-up is a gambling game traditionally played by "Diggers" on Anzac day.
It is played using two pennies loaded into a flat wooden kip and tossed by the "Spinner". In a traditional game the Spinner bets on "heads" (two heads) and his or her bet is matched by some-one betting on "tails" (two tails). In the event of spinning "odds" (a head and a tail), the spinner thows again.
Bystanders usually also join in betting on the outcome of each spin. Two-up is traditionally enjoyed with a few cold beverages!
