In craps, what do you consider as a good-great return on your starting bankroll? The $$ amount doesn't matter. I am talking %s. One session % return. Session may be 10 minutes or 2 hours. Pretend you are willing to loose your entire bankroll. The amount of your bankroll could be 300 or 20k it is all relative.
You cant get 3% or 10% a year in a bank. To make 5% to well over 100% in 10 minutes to 2 hours would be incredible! So, when do you walk away?

It's a negative expectation game. Anything above "even" makes me happy.

Before placing my first bet. Hopefully also after receiving my first drink.

when you go to a movie or a ballgame, do you expect to have a "return" on the money you spent for the ticket? aside from entertainment, ballgames, movies, and craps are all negative expectation.

play as much and as long as you can afford within your budget for entertainment.

If you'd like to leave a craps table with 100K start playing with 200K.

Why are all the poll choices positive numbers?

Bankroll is irrelevant, the real question that matters is:

How much of a bigot was I at the table that day?

I get it! However, it says "Pretend". Every person who signs up with this site knows craps is a -EV game. If at all possible put that on the sidelines for now. Walk up to a craps table and throw out as much money as you want to be entertained with and pretend you are up. At what % up would you stop playing that session and walk. My vote is 100%.

Your poll has 2 narrow a range and doesn't include negative expectations for the naysayers.

Leaving with a double is kinda of like kissing your sister for me, okay but not really very exciting. I won't leave on a double unless I am tired of playing. 5X is where it starts getting exciting. 10x is a good session and 30X to 100X is where the adrenalin is really pumping.
Be careful when you follow the masses, the M is sometimes silent.

In craps, anything more than the initial cash-in (i.e. $100 on a $5 table) even though I might have $500 on me.
So if I play for an hour, and aftr a shooter 7-outs, if I got more than I started with, I'm happy. Will I stay? That's a
different Q&A entirely.
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.
