11 is a push and not a win? The original stories said different. That makes the game even worse.

An 11 is a win on the Pass bet and a push on the Brick bet.

Here is my new page on Street Dice.

As always, I welcome comments, questions, and especially corrections.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Table Limits, (Min/Max) or should I say, "Street Limits," would be a good addition to the page, since this game is only available in one place.

Question: you say that a 7 on the Pass bet is a push, but I saw a picture of the layout that I thought said that a 7 was "roll again" (i.e. you don't have the option to change the bet). Which is correct?

It isn't a very interesting story. I read in that article I quoted before that they were going to open at 6:00 PM yesterday. So I went down, arrived early, and waited for them to open. At about 6:15 they were comfortable they understood the rules and let me play. Although there were a lot of suits standing around, I was the only player, so I had the honor of making the first bet. In fact, about the first dozen bets.

There seemed to be a lot of confusion about the rules as the felt rules were confusing. The rack card did a better job of explaining the game, but that left out some situations too.

I was betting the minimum $5 on the main wager, which I'll call the Street bet, and $1 on the brick. When I was there I asked what the title of this bet was and nobody seemed to know. I was hot with the dice, I must say. Hit lots of point and my brick bet won on about my 7th try. Once that hit, I felt I understood the game well enough and ended on a high note, $80 up.


Event Pays Probability Return
Point roll 7 or 11 0 0.222222 0.000000
Point roll 2, 3, 5, 9, 12 -1 0.333333 -0.333333
Hard way win 25 0.027502 0.687538
Point made easy way -1 0.088594 -0.088594
Seven out -1 0.165009 -0.165009
Three strikes -1 0.163340 -0.163340
Total 1.000000 -0.062738


My personal opinion of the game is the rules are too complicated. I like the "street dice" idea, but I would have either done a simplified version of craps, like they have at the Stratosphere, or C-Lo.

I would encourage the part I left out of the quote to be DELETED. This does sound very interesting and doable.

It's a push. The felt had other issues as well.

Under the Brick Bet rules, it says:
3. If the Set the Point roll is a 2, 3, 5, 9, or 12, then the Pass bet loses.
I think you mean the brick bet loses.

I see I was misreading the bet box.

At first, when I read the (not clearly written on various forums) rules, I thought it might be time to jump on a plane and rake in the huge player advantage on the brick bet that I thought was there. Alas, it wasn't the opportunity I thought it was.

Though I admire The Wizard's math skills, you might want to reexamine this one, "** The Easy Way is rolling a particular even number with both dice landing on difference faces. For example, a two and six would be called an easy 10."

THAT is a very difficult 10.

push-ups+=25;

For the non-C programmers, that means add 25 push-ups to my tab. Payable on demand.
