Does completing the 5-Count reduce the house edge?

15 March 2009

Dear Frank,

I play craps using the 5-Count. I bet the pass line with odds and then make come bets with odds after the 5-Count has been established. If the shooter continues past the 5-Count and then I make my come bets, does this reduce the overall house edge over me?

What is the house edge on me at this point? I figure it's about 0.35. Am I wrong? I bought your book Golden Touch Dice Control Revolution! and I found it to be very helpful to my game.

Please drop me a line with your answer.

Thanks.

Mr. B

Dear Mr. B:

The 5-Count does not change the house edge in a random game. Whatever the house edge of the bet before the 5-Count is completed will be the house edge after the 5-Count is completed.

The 5-Count will reduce the number of random rolls you face by 57% so your losses go down accordingly. If there is a controlled shooter at your table the 5-Count, according to studies done by Skinny of Golden Touch Craps, will change the house edge by allowing you to get onto that shooter almost 11% more than someone betting every roll of every shooter. Go here for information about the 5-Count and advantage-play: http://www.goldentouchcraps.com/skinny0001.shtml
