After all this work, I spotted my first placement of this bet at Buffalo Billy's casino in Cripple Creek CO. They follow a 5-20-150-1000 pay table. I saw what seemed the same Interblock craps game at other Colorado casinos but they didn't have the Lucky Shooter bet.

I see this pay table is not already listed on my site. Here is my analysis of it:

Event Pays Probability Return
Five hits plus point 1000 0.000132 0.132305
Five hits 150 0.001058 0.158766
Four hits 20 0.010002 0.200046
Three hits 5 0.040947 0.204737
Two hits 0 0.108353 0.000000
One hit 0 0.206790 0.000000
Zero hits 0 0.299383 0.000000
Come out roll 7 or 11 1 0.222222 0.222222
Come out roll 2, 3, or 12 0 0.111111 0.000000
Total 1.000000 0.918077


For a multi-roll side bet, an 8.2% house edge ain't bad.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I have heard from a few that have played it, hard to win from it.
Maybe their data proves it and try to make players win more from playing it.

sucker bets taste sweet until they don't
and then you look for another sucker

Ah, yes. The 7 or 11 tie! Good catch. I'm glad my original mistake pushed my calculation a little worse, rather than a little better. Nothing's worse than playing a bad game when you think it's good.

Welcome back! Sorry I never took notice of your original post on this bet.
