In real craps, the house edge is 1.41% for pass, and 1.36% for don't pass.
Does this machine craps have the exact same rule and house edge as the real craps?

I have looked at the rules of the game (on the machine) and from playing about 100 hours on them,
say, yes
meaning the 'rules' for the line bets, place bets, hardways bets, the field bet, the 2 or 12 bet, the horn bet
follow the same rules applied to craps played on a table (real craps)

why the question?

IF I was programming these type of machines, I could have fun with them and change the rules
just to mess with folks.
of course, this might break other type of rules and not be allowed.

some 'rules' standard on Nevada craps tables, hardway bets working on the comeout roll, for example,
might be OFF on a shoot to win machine. that rule does not mess with the rules of what makes a pass line (or come bet) win or lose.

I never played craps but heard about the good odds about craps.
Since it's a machine game, does it usually accumulate points at a slot machine rate or VP rate?
The odds bet has 0% HE, so I guess that bet won't accumulate any points.

Hope there's a lot less EMF radiation in the new machines than was in the Crapless Craps machines of the 1990's. I had to wear a magnetic wrist bracelet to keep my balls from hurting whenever I sat down to them. Unbelievable!

Actually, assuming the rules and payouts are the same, the machines pay out MORE than a real table - but only slightly, and only if you make bets in non-traditional amounts.

For example, a place bet on a 6 or 8 pays 7 to 6. IE, if you bet $6, you'll win $7. However, if you bet $5, you'll only win $5 when it hits. In fact, if you try to bet in non-traditional amounts, dealers will attempt to get you to fix the bet.

On the machine, it pays down to the penny. So if you make that $5 place bet on 6 or 8 and it hits, you'll win $5.83, losing only a third of a cent in the process.

I used to like to progress my PB 6 or 8 from $6, $7, $8, $9, $10, $11, $12, $14, $16, $18, $21, $24, $28, $32, $37, $43, $50 on crapless craps, but didn't have the luxury of getting paid to the penny or winning that much. I'd do it at the tables but would probably get too much dealer resistance.

Edit: Actually that was on a quarter machine and the dollars were 25 cent credits. There were dollar machines but I hadn't won enough to play them yet. I used to buy-in for 80 credits and see if I could triple my money.

Why don't casinos want to comp players using this type of electronic craps game?
