    What you need to play

    How to play the game The thrower is paid by the house if he rolls two dice and gets any of the following combination; 2, 3, 4, 10, 11 or 12, and loses if he rolls 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9. Total                   Payoff 2                           3 to 1 3 or 4                  1 to 1 (evens) 10 or 11             2 to 1 12                         5 to 1

    The player is still at a disadvantage with the overall house edge at 2.8%. Operators not satisfied with their edge sometimes change the odds on a total of 12 to a more modest 3 to 1.  Some New York mob games were known to pay even money (1-1) on totals of 10, and 4 to 1 on a total of 12.
