## THE HOUSE EDGE WILL EAT UP YOUR POTENTIAL WINS IN CRAPS.

I just tripled the House Advantage from 0.5% in Blackjack to 1.5% to cover the PL, DC, and Place Bets of 6 & 8 on the Craps table.

If you play 100 bets, the square root would be 10 bets; HA would be 1.5 bets.^^^^^^^^^(-11.5, +8.5)
If you play 400 bets, the square root would be 20 bets; HA would be 6 bets.^^^^^^^^^^(-26, +14)
If you play 900 bets, the square root would be 30 bets; HA would be 13.5 bets.^^^^^^^^(-43.5, +16.5)
If you play 1,600 bets, the square root would be 40 bets; HA would be 24 bets.^^^^^^^^(-64, +16)
If you play 2,500 bets, the square root would be 50 bets; HA would be 37.5 bets.^^^^^^^(-87.5, +12.5)
If you play 3,600 bets, the square root would be 60 bets; HA would be 54 bets.^^^^^^^^(-114, +6)
If you play 4,900 bets, the square root would be 70 bets; HA would be 73.5 bets.^^^^^^^(-143.5, -3.5)
If you play 6,400 bets, the square root would be 80 bets; HA would be 96 bets.^^^^^^^^(-176, -16)
If you play 8,100 bets, the square root would be 90 bets; HA would be 121.5 bets.^^^^^^(-211.5, -31.5)
If you play 10,000 bets, the square root would be 100 bets; HA would be 150 bets.^^^^^^(-250, -50)

The more you play at a 1.5% HA, the more it's going to eat up any positive variation you can get until you are totally in the hole. Win early, and win big!
These calculations are for 1 standard deviation. YMMV
Seems like the peak is somewhere around 1,000 bets +/-, with a top upside just above 16 bets at 1 SD.
I should stick to a 25 unit buy-in and try to win 10 units to double my money.
The craps tables are \$5/\$10 but the BJ tables are \$25.

After 5,000 PL bets, you'll theoretically be down 70 bets and you'll need to be up 2SD (+35 bets x 2) to be above even.

I read that as 'Be lucky or lose'. Not much of a strategy.

What a revelation! Who knew? Tell the Wizard he should start a website to talk about this*

## The house edge will eat up your potential wins in Blackjack.

If you play 100 hands, the square root would be 10 hands; HA would be 0.5 hands.^^^^^^^^^(-10.5, +9.5)
If you play 400 hands, the square root would be 20 hands; HA would be 2 hands.^^^^^^^^^^(-22, +18)
If you play 900 hands, the square root would be 30 hands; HA would be 4.5 hands.^^^^^^^^^(-34.5, +25.5)
If you play 1,600 hands, the square root would be 40 hands; HA would be 8 hands.^^^^^^^^^(-48, +32)
If you play 2,500 hands, the square root would be 50 hands; HA would be 12.5 hands.^^^^^^^(-62.5, +37.5) *
If you play 3,600 hands, the square root would be 60 hands; HA would be 18 hands.^^^^^^^^(-78, +42)
If you play 4,900 hands, the square root would be 70 hands; HA would be 24.5 hands.^^^^^^^(-94.5, +45.5)
If you play 6,400 hands, the square root would be 80 hands; HA would be 32 hands.^^^^^^^^(-112, +48)
If you play 8,100 hands, the square root would be 90 hands; HA would be 40.5 hands.^^^^^^^(-130.5, +49.5)

If you play 10,000 hands, the square root would be 100 hands; HA would be 50 hands.^^^^^^^(-150, +50) PEAK
If you play 40,000 hands, the square root would be 200 hands; HA would be 200 hands.^^^^^^(-400, 0)
If you play 90,000 hands, the square root would be 300 hands; HA would be 450 hands.^^^^^^(-750, -150)
If you play 160,000 hands, the square root would be 400 hands; HA would be 800 hands.^^^^^(-1200, -400)
If you play 250,000 hands, the square root would be 500 hands; HA would be 1,250 hands.^^^^(-1750, -750)
If you play 360,000 hands, the square root would be 600 hands; HA would be 1,800 hands.^^^^(-2400, -1200)
If you play 490,000 hands, the square root would be 700 hands; HA would be 2,450 hands.^^^^(-3150, -1750)
If you play 640,000 hands, the square root would be 800 hands; HA would be 3,200 hands.^^^^(-4000, -2400)
If you play 810,000 hands, the square root would be 900 hands; HA would be 4,050 hands.^^^^(-4950, -3150)
If you play 1,000,000 hands, the square root would be 1,000 hands; HA would be 5,000 hands.^^(-6000, -4000)

The more you play at a 0.5% HA, the more it's going to eat up any positive variation you can get until you are totally in the hole. Win early, and win big!

Seems there's a peak somewhere between 10,000 and 40,000 hands. Let me see if I can find it.
If you play 12,100 hands, the square root would be 110 hands; HA would be 60.5 hands.^^^^^^(-170.5, +49.5)
If you play 15,625 hands, the square root would be 125 hands; HA would be 78 hands.^^^^^^^(-203, +47)
If you play 22,500 hands, the square root would be 150 hands; HA would be 112.5 hands.^^^^^(-262.5, +37.5) *
If you play 30,625 hands, the square root would be 175 hands; HA would be 153 hands.^^^^^^(-328, +22)

* If I wanted a win goal of 37.5 hands, I should settle for it somewhere between hands 2,500 and 22,500, and the sooner the better. I could lose 7 times 37.5 units at the latter number of hands.

I'd probably stick to near 400 hand sessions and either lose 25 hands or win 20 hands and quadruple my buy-in.

These calculations are for 1 standard deviation. YMMV
If I play 400 hand sessions and have a 2 standard deviation streak, I could be down 42 hands or up 38 hands, (and get to my 37.5 unit win goal).
If I play 10,000 hand sessions and have a 3 standard deviation streak, I could be down 350 hands or up 250 hands.

## Video Poker Progression

I thought I saw some 20 coin VP at the casino. How to play that? Single coin for the 1st 100 hands, 2 coins for the next 100 hands, 3 coins for the next 100 hands...? Keep going until you hit some 4 of a kind win goal then reset your bet to 1 coin?

Four of a kind odds = 1 / 423 https://www.videopoker.com/learn/statistics/

I've seen plenty of 20-coin machines, but I really don't understand what you're asking. Sorry, maybe I'm slow in the head, and old.

One of the more frequent 20-coin machines I see is the Triple Deuces for 5-cents. Fairly common.

## Color Up - Craps with a Dealer at the table

Color Up is a Craps YouTube channel where the host tries out different craps strategies, some suggested. In this episode he invites a Dealer to play with him. They take turns rolling the dice. Episode 1 has the host rolling, but the Dealer being stickman; and Episode 2 is reversed. The Dealer has so much craps lingo, it's worth a watch just for that!

My Favorite Strategy with Live Craps Dealer Part 1 - YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GT4-KMUyvQc
My Favorite Strategy with Live Craps Dealer Part 2 - YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgNkul9XX1A

My takeaway from watching this is I'm going to re-figure my Passline Progressive, but not quite to what these two were doing. If I can win a 10 bet session for every win past 11 in a row on the Passline, I'm gonna start with that.

PS: Just got an antivirus threat on a casino game I had on my Windows 98SE machine. Just copying files to a new 10 TB hard drive.
