Great item! One think I'm still unclear on. With the Brick bet, the instruction card says "Hit any even point the hard way and you win 25 to 1." At first, I assumed you have to hit the established point the hard way, but that wording makes me think you get paid if you hit ANY of the four hard ways before your three rolls are up. Any ideas which is accurate?

What they meant was you have to hit the point you made the hard way. When I played, I hit a different point the hard way, the dealer paid me, and I just stood there waiting for somebody to correct him. Then a suit corrected the dealer, saying that you have to win the established point the hard way.

Don't go by the rule card or felt for what the rules are.

That triggered my giggle reflex :) It's like being told in a restaurant not to order by what's on the menu.

If the card and felt are wrong, they should be changed. Imagine if you get paid 6:5 at a table where the felt says "Blackjack pays 3:2." Or being paid 25 to 1 as a PGP bonus for a straight flush where the felt says "50 to 1." I'm guessing any casino that did this would find itself in trouble.

Thanks! Yeah, the crew was spending a lot of time talking about how the rules were fairly simple, but the way they're presented on the layout are confusing. Appreciate the quick response, and for the as-always thoughtful analysis. Not the worst game in the casino, but not the best either.

push-ups+=25;

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

If the felt is wrong, any other payout is technically illegal, so you can threaten to call gaming over it.

Meh. change to: I suppose it is supposed to be a dice game one might encounter played in an alley, it would seem. [or something to avoid 'suppose it is supposed'.] Assuming it isn't 'just me' here

I think he was holding his nose because the game stinks for changing the rules of Craps, clearly totally unnecessary [except in order to increase the HE].

I could easily see that happening. Dealer overpayments too. For what should have been a simple game, they didn't roll it out very well.

By the way, did anyone else notice the similarity to Die Rich?
