Two Mathematical Gambling Systems

That Work at Home But Not in the Casinos

ANY CRAPS -- A Mathematical Gambling System That Works Much, Much Better at Home Than In The Casinos

(Taken from Are the Casinos Crooked?, by Frederick Lembeck)


Chapter 7 - Any Craps


       Any Craps is designed to be played on the Any Craps bet in the center of the craps layout, but it can be played on any 7 to 1 bet anywhere.


       When you bet Any Craps you’re betting on the shooter to throw a 2, 3 or 12 in the next roll of the dice.  This means you get a fresh bet with each new roll.  No mathematical gambling system could ever be faster than this.  Use nickels, pennies, dimes and quarters for chips.


       Mathematically it’s a true 8 to 1, paying 7 to 1.  This is nice.  Wait’ll you win a 7 to 1, you'll know the meaning of the word Sweet.


       With Any Craps you open with a bet of just $1.  In most casinos the dealer will let you bet a mere $1 if you’re betting on a long shot bet like Any Craps.  (If he doesn't, the hell with him, open at the house minimum whatever it is and kick his ass anyway.)


       THE FORMULA:  Any time you lose, you increase the bet by $1.  Any time you win, you decrease the bet by $10.  That's the Any Craps formula and boy does it work!


       (Why $10 instead of $9 or $11 or some other number?  Since the game gives the house a mathematical edge, which it genuinely does, you have to counter with a slick mathematical correction to overcome the house edge.  This is actually quite easy.  If you don't know math don't worry, I do.  The correction for long shots is to decrease the bet after each win by the true odds, in this case 8, plus 2 extra to create a solid, reliable drift downward in your betting amounts.  Since 8 + 2 = 10, the correction after each win in Any Craps is $10.)


       On your kitchen table Any Craps will make you money like water over Niagara.  In the casino it’ll be the exact opposite, you won't win so much as bus fare home.


       Something smells.

       Soon you'll be among the people confirming this by word of mouth.  Meanwhile, write to Jimmy Fallon and Steven Colbert and ask them to have their Bands test Any Craps.  They'll both want to know the truth of it, and it won't hurt their ratings one bit to be remembered for honesty.






       QUICK TEST:  Have one tester play a run of blackjack (or any other 1 to 1 bet) wagering $10 on every hand.  Quit as soon as there's an equal number of wins and losses.

       Since the wins and losses are equal there's NO profit.

       Simultaneously, have a second tester bet that same run using Half Peak with an opening bet of $10.

       With Half Peak there's ALWAYS a profit.  But only at home, not it in any casino.

HALF PEAK -- A Mathematical Gambling System That Works Much, Much Better At Home Than In The Casinos

       (Taken from Are the Casinos Crooked?, by Frederick Lembeck)

Chapter 4 - Half Peak

       Half Peak is played on any 1 to 1 bet.  The fastest action is on either the 1 to 1 PASS bet or the 1 to 1 DON'T PASS bet at craps.

       When you bet PASS, you're betting the shooter to win.  When you bet DON'T PASS, you're betting the shooter to lose.

       Ask the dealer to show you the PASS line and DON'T PASS line, where you put your chips.

       Half Peak can also be played at Blackjack or any of the 1 to 1 bets at roulette, only it takes much longer because the pace is much slower.

       The game of craps is simple:  a first throw of 7 or 11 wins (game over in a single throw), a first throw of 2, 3 or 12 loses (game over in a single throw), and a first throw of any other number (called the "point") must be repeated before a 7 is thrown, or the shooter loses the bet.

       Half Peak starts with a bet of $10, not $1.  If the first bet wins, the second bet is $9.  If the first bet loses, the second bet is $11.  That's the first half of the formula:  any time you win, you decrease the bet by $1;  any time you lose, you increase the bet by $1 (same as the well-known D'Alembert system).  You follow the progression wherever it goes, making $.50 profit on every bet.

       [NOTE:  The $.50 profit per bet arises because every pair of wins and losses generates $1 profit.  Always.  If you bet $10 and lose, then bet $11 and win, you've won $22, but spent only $21.  One dollar profit.  Conversely, if you bet $10 and win, then bet $9 and lose, you've won $20, but spent only $19.  Again, one dollar profit.  Half a dollar per bet, in other words.  ALL THOSE HALF DOLLARS ADD UP.   THAT'S WHY HALF PEAK MAKES MONEY.  An actual trial will prove the matter plainly.]

       The second half of the Half Peak formula is subtler:

       As with Any Craps, because the game gives the house a tiny mathematical edge, the house will always win a tiny bit more often than you do.  This in turn means your losing streaks will always be a tiny bit longer than your winning streaks (which is why the D'Alembert system loses).  You have to counter this once again with a mathematical correction, only with Half Peak the correction is to end the game at one half of the highest amount your progression reaches, that is, half your peak, which is where the name Half Peak comes from.

       You started at $10, say.  If bad luck carries your progression all the way up to $30, you quit as soon as good luck carries you back down to $15, then start all over again at $10 with a brand new game.  (You don't wait for good luck to carry your progression back down to $10.  It won't.  Your losing streaks, remember, are always going to be a tiny bit longer than your winning streaks.)  If bad luck carries your progression all the way up to $50, you quit as soon as you get back down to $25, then start all over again at $10.  If bad luck carries your progression up to $80, you quit as soon as you get back down to $40, then start all over again at $10, etc., etc.  Game always ends when you reach Half Peak.

       Run a simulation at home using pennies, quarters, nickles and dimes for chips.  See how you make out.  But don't quit your day job yet, it only works on your desk, not in any casino.

       When you try it in a casino, you'll lose every penny.  These results are repeatable by independent experimenters, including YOU.  How can such results be?  Might the operating companies that the hoteliers hire to run their casinos be using crooked gaming equipment to swindle the public?  (Are the operating companies cheating the hoteliers as well as the public?  What do hotel men know about running a casino?  Would they know it if they were being swindled?)

       Who owns the operating companies?  Typically there are many, many part owners, each owning "points."  The dealers and pit bosses running the swindle are always part owners, "pointholders."  That's what keeps everything secret.  They're the ones cheating the public, not the unsuspecting hotel chains.  [NOTE: Not all dealers are pointholders.  Many are just Honest Joe's working for a paycheck and tips who may have no idea of what's going on around them.]

      NOW HERE'S THE IMPORTANT PART:  Check out pages 183, 223 and 270, from John Scarne's GUIDE TO CASINO GAMBLING (click on the Scarne excerpts link to the left), detailing the technology of electric dice, magnetic roulette balls, trick card-dealing shoes, etc.  Is such equipment actually being manufactured?  (And how!)  For whose use?  To victimize whom?


       A former US Secretary of Education and member of the President's Cabinet, William Bennett, now a radio talk show host (Can you believe it?), reportedly lost $8 million to the casinos.  Was it bad luck or was he swindled?  If you know him you should ask him.  Maybe it'll light a fire under his bottom and cause him to use his high-level contacts to get an investigation started.  How is it possible for there to be such a thing as a mathematical gambling system that works differently at home than in the casinos?  What does your common sense tell you?

       Should you be warning your friends and loved ones who've been losing money?  You bet you should!  Permission is granted to copy and paste this page and send it around as needed.  Also to Xerox it.
