I will concede that I was being a bit -- OK, maybe totally -- anal with my response, but you made a demonstrably false statement. You are a newcomer to the forum, hence we have only your self-proclaimed expertise on which to base a judgement of your qualifications for advocating a certain method of play. I felt constrained to challenge your (so to speak) credentials. As to the first half of your reason I suggest it only hints at what I consider to be the feature of Craps that sets it apart from every other game in the casino. In all of those other games the player is betting on the outcome of a single trial. (OK, not strictly true; some houses, mostly in Europe AFAIK, offer en prison in Roulette.) In Craps the player is betting on the outcome of a sequence of trials (rolls), which introduces the concept of contract bets. There is of course another feature of Craps, at least the live version of the game, that sets it apart from all other games: a player generates the result, not a machine or a casino employee. In theory this gives the player an opportunity to exert some influence over his/her fate.
