We are quite close on house edge. I have 11.38%. That 20 basis point difference is probably just due to infinite vs 6 deck, though I wouldn't expect a difference much larger than that.

However at 3.96 % your element of risk looks low (mine is 4.93%). If your house edge is 11.17% then your element of risk should be 4.84%. That's a ratio of 13 to 30 since with raises you bet 17 more units (2 x 1 plus 3 x 5) per 13 antes. I just checked the GLI numbers you quoted and they corroborate this ratio.

I assume the reason I'm not agreeing to GLI percentages is because their numbers are for less decks and:or H17.

You're absolutely right again. When I correct for that error I get an element of risk of 4.84% for pay table 4. Thanks again. If you're ever in Vegas, I owe you a beer.

WoO,

10. If the dealer busts, and the player did raise his Raise the Roof bet, then the original Raise the Roof wager shall pay according to one of the pay tables below, depending on which one management decides to use.

However, this does not say what the payoff is on the "raised" portion of the bet.

Go to: the Colorado dot gov website (sorry, I was unable to post a direct link), then to /pacific/enforcement/laws-and-regulations-gaming-0

Then to section 8, pages 50-52, has the rules for this sidebet where it shows that both the original and the raised wagers are multiplied.

You might want to modify your webpage to clarify this.

Thanks. Good catch. I just updated the page to say the Raise bet also is paid according to the pay table.
