The man says "I'll give you $600 if you can roll 1 die and get a 4 or above, you can roll 2 dice and get a 5 or 6 on at least one of them, or you can roll 3 dice and get a 6 on at least on die. If you don't I get your $300."

Incidentally, if he wins the bet he'll be tripling his money, not doubling it. The man says he'll give him $600. $300 + $600 = $900.
