e-Craps (electronic everything but the dice are real), 3/4/5x.
*Playing Darkside*

e-craps is considered a slot machine, thus W2G on \$1200+ (including ORIGINAL bet).
thus \$100 flat/\$600 odds will get you ~\$1199 of which ~\$500 is profit. (Using \$100 for sake of simplicity. I know it's a little less if points are 5/9, 6/8.)

Lets say I bring \$2400 to the table. My original wagers are \$35/210odds and goal is to win \$700 total (or quit when i'm down to \$1200).
When at +700 I do a \$100/600odds bet. if i win, i get +500. If i lose, i'm back at break even.

# wins at \$100/\$ won/cummulative total if win/Cumm total if lost:
1- \$500/1200/0 (700-700)
2- 500/1700/500 (1200-700)
3- 500/2200/1000 (1700-700)
etc

Basically i'm betting \$700 to win \$500. I walk away at first loss.

Should I stop at the 1st win (+\$1200)? or keep going till the streak ends?
What does the math say? should I just keep it at \$35/210odds and never press for best chances of max payout?

edit:
looking at my table, if i walk away at 1st win, i am +1200.
if i keep going and lose at 3rd win, i'm only +1000. Basically I risked 2 more times and walk away with less \$! WOW!!!

Looks like 1st win at \$100/600odds and walk is the best play?!?!
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)

What does the math say?

The "math" says stop playing -EV games, it cannot get any simpler. But I'm sure you already know that.
If you want absolution for your play that's fine - play as long as you have fun with it. But don't ask for "math" if you don't like the answer.
