    While we may downplay it here, we do recognize that true randomness is important to our players.

    We continue to make improvements and innovations on our random number generator.

    We now offer four random modes
    1. Random(6)+Random(6)
    2. Random(Seed)+ Random(Seed)
    3. Roll table (Hopwise) 1-36 Random Array
    4. Roll table (Hopwise) 1-36 Random Array (seed)

    The seed is a unique, bio-influenced randomization that simulates the “rubber backed craps layout” (or backboard) of the craps table.

    Natural odds for hard four three times in a row is 46656:1.
    Of course you would have noticed any hardways outcome three times in a row, so lets divide by six.
    Now we are at 7776:1 for any hardways three times in a row.
    We have logged over 10 Million rolls at our server.
    So I am comfortable that Triple Hardways has happened thousands of time with no default in our random number generators.

    We will be adding the option for you to change the amount of seconds Casino Time is set to.

    in reply to: what is Max Odds in settings? #394

    Max Odds change the multiplier that calculates the maximum odds based on the original bet for the Pass Line, Don’t Pass, Come, or Don’t Come.

    5-5-5 Max odds with a $25 bet on the Pass Line will allow $125 odds to be placed.
    3-3-3 Max odds with a $25 bet on the Pass Line will allow $75 odds to be placed.
    3-4-5 Max odds gets a bit more complicated.
    For the Pass Line the point determines the odds multiplier. 3x odds on the 4 & 10, 4x odds on the 5 & 9, and 5x odds on the 6 & 8. This is similar for the Come; where the location of the bet determines the odds multiplier.
    For the Don’t Pass the max odds are calculated so that the player can win the maximum that would be placed as odds on the Pass Line (this is rounded up if the payout would be uneven). Similarly the Don’t Come has the max odds calculated so that the player can win the maximum that would be placed as odds on the Come.

    The best setting is “No limit” as odds have a payout equal to the chance of being rolled. Some casinos have a limit of 100x but most use the 3-4-5 system.

    Some of these rules are currently in beta testing and don’t match version 1.4.2 of Craps Trainer Pro. They will be available on the next release.

    Hello dsross,
    Thank you for identifying this bug with Don’t Pass odds and Don’t Come odds.
    I have tested based on your example and version. The assumption for version 1.4.2 was that Don’t Pass and Don’t Come max odds was double the 3x-4x-5x.

    It our understanding now that Don’t Pass odds and Don’t Come odds will have a max equal to a Pass or Come bet’s odds payout.
    Can you confirm this?

    Mike,
    I set casino time based on my experiences.
    I play mostly smaller places where the table is less populated.
    Dealers and Stick Men are more social and play goes slower
    I imagine that at Harrah’s, where the tables are packed, they train staff to work the table for maximum “drop” (money wagered).
    So more rolls there make sense.
    Let’s go for 45 seconds.

    Thank you for the input.
    Bill

    Glad you are enjoying Craps Trainer.
    While it would appear that those bets trigger a seven out, bets on the board have no effect on the next roll.
    While 27/40 is a high number of Sevens to rolls, keep in mind it takes around 400,000 rolls to get a statistically significant result.
    Try mixing it up and playing the Don’t Pass and Don’t Come for sevens not against them.
    IMO some people are prone to roll 7s other are not, see what works for you not what works for others.

    I’m not sure, but I think there may be a bug in the free version. I love the app. It has taught me a wonderful new casino game and wasted many hours.

    I’ve been playing the free version for a couple of weeks, on a tip from a friend, I’ve been played:
    $10 on Pass Line
    After the come out roll
    $12 on 6
    $12 on 8
    Then I’ll throw $5 on the Field.

    For some reason, a craps is rolled almost every time when that series of bets is placed. The instances of craps is considerably higher than would be acceptable for a random die roll. Out of 40 consecutive bets played in the above manner, 27 ended in craps after the next roll.

    A final word, ask any programmer friend (or relative) “how easy is it to program a random number?”
    See code above?

    We are not insensitive to these comments.
    We are always looking for ways to make the game more fun.
    Our plan is to add a biological factor in the seeding of the random number.
    In a future release the shooter may keep his finger on the dice for some period of time, at the moment of release we will take a milliseconds time stamp and use it to “seed the random number generator.
    This way the dice rolls are still random, but controlled by you, just like in the real game of craps.

    Grant, we have not changed the mathematical logic of the dice rolls in any release.
    Here is a snippet of the code we use:
    d.topFace = (int) (Math.random() * 6f + 1);
    This translates to setting the die’s topFace to a random number. First by calling the (Math.random()) which gives a random number where the range is from 0.0 inclusive to 1.0 exclusive. Then multiply by 6 to get a number from 0.0-5.9 and add 1 to make it 1.0-6.9. The (int) removes any remainder after the decimal.
    Be aware of the morphic fields you generate that may have an effect on your device (the world you believe in is what you see).

    I’m very disgusted with your update- you have a mathematical nightmare going on now with way way way too many 7’s coming up- you had a great thing going and you not only are ruining it by having almost no chance ever of hitting more than one point number ( and even that is rare) your update also discouraged me from actually going to the casino and playing one of the most fun games ever created. Please fix your pass line odds issue and give us at least a fighting chance against the 7- I play the don’t come also and that doesn’t even make up for my huge losses. If not fixed I will have to uninstall and convince others to do so as well- please put your great game back the way you had it’

    Hi.

    I’m a dealer and I was always interested in making different casino games that can calculate different stats for training purpose (as a player). So thanks for your craps game.

    A lot of craps game don’t have the hopping bets, yours have. Thanks.

    But I don’t see a possibility to put lay bets on numbers. Also, we should be able to just put Place bets, or buy it for a commission. And also be able to put your bets on our off as we wish (except for the base on a number).

    The ability to do those would make this game an excellent game instead of great. The closer to reality, the better for serious training.

    And as I play, Il y if I think of other small things that may be missing.

    Thanks again.
