    I am a retired IT guy and craps player for over 30 years. I have been programming craps systems in WinCraps for some time. None of the systems programmed win over the long run but some do limit the amount of losses so you can play longer with less bankroll. I am looking for challenging systems to program in WinCraps. Message me if you have any such systems. I have a dice roll file from my casino play of over 4500 real rolls that I run the sim through. Also can set win/loss/rolls limits to the sim. Would love to see other forum members WinCraps sims! I have included a little system sim I like to play with the Field and DP.

    We're birds of a feather, although it has been 49 years since I bellied up to my first craps table.
    We know that if dice rolls are random no betting system can beat the game, as in give the player the mathematical advantage, in the long run. What betting systems can do is influence the shape of what one poster of yesteryear (goatcabin) called The Shape of Possible Futures. What I would find interesting are graphs showing those shapes, the outcomes of, just to pick some numbers out of thin air, 10000 sessions of 500 rolls (about four hours of play with a decent crew), a starting bankroll of $1000, and bets starting at $10. For each strategy run through the sim,
    • What was the highest amount won?
    • How many sessions double the bankroll?
    • How many sessions end with any profit at all?
    • How many sessions "go the distance"?
    I understand beggars can't be choosers, so I would settle for some grouping of strategies into general categories like the ones I came up with for an article I wrote for Casino City Times some years back.
    • Winnng progressions
    • Losing progressions
    • Regressions
    • Hedges
    • Waiting
    • Hybrids
    You asked for systems to program. I have one that may prove to be a bit of a challenge, particularly since I probably have not covered all the bases.

    I have a complex hybrid system that I use on the bubble machines. Not sure if it would be possible to program it as the bet amounts change in a tiered progression tied to how many dollars you have lost instead of tied to losing bets. If you want me to explain it let me know.

    I also do much the same...progress and regress based on dollar amount lost not bets won or lost. It's a bit of a D'Alembert, based on dollars not individual bets. A very high win rate with small win goals, and moderate bankroll.

    Good luck with yours!

    Would like to see it. Totally possible to setup tiered progressions.

    A tiered progression? Or a "teared" progression? :( :D
