The "House Way" for this particular version of Shut-the-Box works as follows:

  • Only 1 or 2 numbers may be shut on a roll. No 3 or 4 shuts allowed.
  • If the dealer is able to shut a single number, they will do so.
  • If the dealer must shut 2 numbers, they will choose the combination with the highest and lowest numbers possible.
Using this set of rules, here are the chances (in %) that x numbers will be shut:
# shutchance
94.886%
817.289%
727.799%
626.384%
515.816%
45.927%
31.449%
20.373%
10.077%
Have both a "Do" and "Don't" bet in this game means that player control of the number choices would be detrimental in a multi-player (Craps-like) environment. You can't allow another player's actions determine the outcome of your wager.

Playtest the game!
I have posted a "casino version" of Shut the Box. The link above takes you to the post with the live link. Comments should be posted on that thread, as opposed to this one.

It was the endgame on High Rollers. In addition to the traditional rules, rolling doubles (hardways) awarded a bonus roll, and leaving just the "1" standing counted as a win.


Actually, leaving the 1 counted as a loss, at least on the Alex Trebek version (don't remember seeing anyone leaving just one number on the Wink Martindale version) - you got the $800 you would normally get for leaving just one number when you lose. (In its earliest days, they gave away a car for taking off 8 of the 9 numbers.).

(It was also the endgame for most of the run on Las Vegas Gambit.)
