The statistical average result is a 7. If you charge \$7 you will break even in the long run. If you charge \$8 nobody will play because it's obvious that they lose money. So the casino instead charges \$6 then rigs the dice so that you can't get more than a 3 on either one. This is how they maximize the profit. Casinos are filthy cheaters.
