Sevens to Rolls Ratio or SRR. Its probably one of the first terms you heard when you started your dice influencing journey. I believe the phrase was coined by Sharpshooter and for the beginning dice influencer, its an excellent window into the potential of precision shooting.
We know in the long run the seven appears
randomly once out of every six throws, an SRR of 1:6. If a shooter can
influence the dice in a way that reduces the appearance to say, once every seven rolls, a
SRR of 1:7, it certainly seems as if an advantage can be gained on a game which has
previously been unbeatable.
Tracking your SRR wont help you determine whether youre maintaining the axial relationship of the dice. (This is commonly referred to as keeping the dice on axis.) Nor will SRR indicate whether youre successfully overcoming the house edge on the wagers youre making. SRR really gives us just a whisper of the necessary information we need to successfully beat the game of craps.
you were to think of SRR in terms of the weather, it would be equivalent to sticking your
arm out the window to determine the temperature. You can determine if its hot, or
warm, or cold, but you cant ascertain the specific temperature, nor can you predict
if will rain or snow in the immediate future.
effective the shooter is at avoiding the seven, the more significant the variance will be
on specific numbers. This is an excellent way to get a general idea about which number or
numbers a shooter should be wagering on. Tracking signature numbers isnt perfect,
but its not a bad way to go either. In fact, instead of SRR, some shooters track
their Sevens to Signature Numbers Ratio.
The best way to track on axis percentage for the sevens avoidance sets (V-3, V-2 and crossed 6s) is to toss two different colored dice. This way you know which numbers should not appear on each of the colored dice. A shooter who can keep both dice on axis 50% of the time or better is going to see some extraordinary data results.
Analyzing your on axis results has other benefits.
I not only track my combined on axis percentage, but also for each die individually. When
Im practicing, if I see that one die in particular is off axis, it indicates that
perhaps Im getting sloppy with my grip and that I should re-focus or make an
One of the many outstanding features is a roll your own dice function. Using this software, a shooter can simulate casino play on their practice rig with actual wagers and payoffs. At any point, the software can determine the shooters overall advantage over the house, and, more importantly, individually on each of the wagers theyve made.
For instance, if a shooter uses the V-3 set and always make a hard 6 and hard 8 bet, Wincraps will tell them if theyre really overcoming the 9.09% house advantage. This
software is an excellent way to scrutinize your betting patterns.
importantly, better data can mean more efficient and consistent results at the tables. If
