If I spend 60 to 90 minutes minutes at a craps table... I may see one profitable roll... The other 15 or so will be unprofitable. Every 20th visit I might encounter a moderately 'hot table.' Tough game, requiring immense patience!

16 months till your first post, Do we scare you ?
Shed not for her the bitter tear Nor give the heart to vain regret Tis but the casket that lies here, The gem that filled it Sparkles yet

I don't know if this helps, but here's a graph of what to expect with and without odds for 20,000 rolls or about 200 hours of play. Also multiply your losses by 2x for a $10 table. This is a $5 table with 4x odds graph.

When you add the odds you still lose the same amount in the long run, but you can win in the short term. In the long term, you still lose unless you do something besides just flat betting and hoping to get lucky eventually.

Now and again, ... try the Dark Side.
OR
If you really want to only be a Right Side Bettor, wait until the table appears "warm". Sure its an imprecise heat and one that is most definitely fickle but it can buy you some time before you lose your bankroll.

I've taken 9 trips to Vegas lifetime solely playing Craps and only lost overall on ONE trip; my last trip back in October 2012 where almost every single move I made on various Craps tables in multiple Casinos up and down the strip over the 5 day period went WRONG!

Craps is very cyclical; once you start losing....you usually keep losing. I have no fancy charts or extended mathematical formulas to show you; simply 13 years of playing Craps.

Take an extended break from the tables when things start heading south; your wallet will thank you!
Craps is the most "Jekyll and Hyde" casino game ever invented!

I'm sometimes amazed at how long streaks can go in craps. This last year from January through September (about 30 sessions), I couldn't lose. I thought I'd figured out the secret to the game! Then from October through December (about the same number of sessions, thanks to a Vegas trip), the bottom fell out, and I couldn't win.
