I've been writing about and helping design new casino games for 20 years now. One idea that keeps coming up over and over is a simplified version of craps. The idea has crashed and burned 100% of the time it has been put to the test. However, maybe things will be different in the southern hemisphere.

Snake eyes takes out all the stable craps bets and leaves the player with only the sucker bets. Of course, they would probably sell it as taking out all the complicated bets and leaving only the easy ones to understand.

With the introduction out of the way, please have a look at my new page on Snake Eyes. As always, I welcome all questions, comments, and especially corrections.

The question for the poll is would you play Snake Eyes?

This is one of those games that I would play for a $1 or $2 minimum for about 20-30 minutes.

So the field bet at 5% is the 'best' bet in the game? All the others are around 18-20% HE?

...I've got an idea for a game as well. Everyone just give me $100 and every now and then I'll give someone $500, whenever I feel like it. The game will be called Non-Consensual Action. Come take a chance at winning big!
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

That's called "the lottery." Haha!

Actually, it gets as bad as 22%, on the hard 4 and hard 10 bets. The usual American 7 to 1 odds, for a house edge of 11.1%, were too generous so they lowered them to 6.

Typo in the rules section :


Field — This single-roll bet pays 3-1 on a total of 12 2, 1-1 on totals of 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, and 12, and loses on all others.

A couple typos from the rules.

...
12 — This single-roll bet pays 30-1 on a total of 2 and loses on all others.

Field: That first 12 in the field should be 2.
12: Shows it paying on a 2. Should be 12.
You totally missed the Any 7.

Ignoring the horrendous edge, I have issues with the general design.

It is trying to be a simplified version of craps rather than being a simple dice game.

It uses the term ‘craps’. Why? This game is NOT craps. Don’t confuse things by using that name as a bet option - particularly when you put 11 in that group! And then further confuse things by having a C+E bet? WTF???

I have other issues with this game. And it’s making me think about a really good simplified dice game.

I’ll submit a write up in a day or two…

What a disgusting game.
