# Random dice role program in Java

Welcome, in this tutorial we create a dice program in java that generates a random number between 1 to 6. we use a java.util.Random class to generate the numbers between the specific range.

### Code with explanation: Random dice role

```import java.util.Random;
import java.util.Scanner;

public class DiceExample {

public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
System.out.print("Enter the dice roll count: ");
int numberOfDice = input.nextInt();
if (numberOfDice == 0) {
System.out.println("Input rollcount is 0" + "\n" + "Number of dice incremented to 1.");
numberOfDice++;
}
diceRolled(numberOfDice);
input.close();
}

public static void diceRolled(int a) {
int dice;
int result = 0;
int total = 0;
Random randomObj = new Random();
System.out.print("Dice rolled : ");
for (dice = 1; dice <= a; dice++) {
result = randomObj.nextInt(6) + 1;
total += result;
System.out.print(result + " ");

}

System.out.println("\n" + "Total  = " + total);

}

}
```

When the user enters 0, the output is.

```Output
Enter the dice roll count: 0
Input rollcount is 0
Number of dice incremented to 1.
Dice rolled : 6
Total = 6```

When the user enters a value greater than 0, the output is.

```Output
Enter the dice roll count: 2
Dice rolled : 2 3
Total = 5```

#### Explanation

• In the main body, The code starts by creating a Scanner object called input.
• The code prints “Enter the dice roll count: “ and asks for an integer value from the user.
• If the number of dice is 0, then it increments to 1 and executes the following line of code.
• Line 14, code calls a function named diceRolled() that takes in an integer value as its argument.
• Line 18, The function calculates how many times each dice has been thrown and displays the result on the screen with the total value of the result.

Thatâ€™s enough for a quick overview of the Random dice role program in Java.
