Rules of snake eyes game, Game Theory

Rules of Snake Eyes (small variation on game called Craps in USA)

Player rolls two dice.

On the first roll if the total of the dice is

2 (snake eyes): player wins and receive 2 points

7 or 11: player wins and the player receives 1 point

3 or 12: player's loses and the House (the computer) receives 2 points

4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10: this total becomes your possible points that you will receive if you win. To win, you continue to roll the dice until you roll your possible points value a second time. However if you throw a total of 7 before throwing  your possible points value, you lose and the House receives 2 points.   Rolling a total which is not equal to 7 or your possible points value in these subsequent rolls has no effect on the game, you simply roll again.

In the screen shot on the next page, the player rolls a total of 4, so rolls again and luckily rolls a 4 and so wins. In the next game, rolls a total of 4 (pure coincidence!) and then has to do successive rolls until rolls a 4 and so now has 8 points total.
