Why not just figure 2% of your average total wagers per session, give that amount of money to the first beggar on the street, and then go play poker instead?
1) You can sit down at a craps machine, which is cool if you don't feel like standing up.
2) In some casinos the free odds and prop bet odds are better than their live crap games.
3) You can drink for free+tips while betting $1 instead of $5 (or whatever the live table minimum is).
4) The machines offer fractional payouts so you can, for example, place the 6 or 8 for $1 to win $1.16 instead of having to bet $6 to win $7 (or $5 to win $5).
