I've tried to work out the math but it's a bit over my head.
So i have 2 questions.

There's only one roll to win a Hard 6 (two 3s) and ten rolls to lose (Rolling a 7: 1/6, 2/5, 3/4, 4/3, 5/2,6/1 or rolling the soft 6: 1/5, 2/4, 4/2, 5/1).
Same applies for hard 8.

There's only one roll to win a Hard 4 (two 2s) and eight rolls to lose (Rolling a 7: 1/6, 2/5, 3/4, 4/3, 5/2,6/1 or rolling the soft 4: 1/3, 3/1).
Same applies for hard 10.

Questions:
1) What are the odds of winning a hard 6/8 or hard 4/10.
2) What are the odds of winning the same hard-way twice. i.e. I win on hard 8 and choose to parlay it. What are my odds of winning that overall?

Number of successful results divided by total number of possible results.

>2) What are the odds of winning the same hard-way twice.
The odds of it happening twice are the odds of its happening once times the odds of its happening once.

The odds of winning a single hardway bet for 6 is 1/11.
The odds of winning two consecutive hardway 6's is 1/121

The odds of winning a hardway 4 is 1/9
The odds of winning two consecutive hardway 4's is 1/81

If you have ALREADY won a hard 8 and choose to parlay it, at that point you have a 1/11 chance of winning.

Thanks a bunch.
