In the PDP-7/9 Dice Playing Program the player can place bets in an attempt to increase his amount of virtual dollars. The player wins if he/she can earn more than 9999 dollars. After each bet two dice are rolled. The sum of the two dice must be rolled again on a successive roll to get a payout, but once a seven is rolled the player loses his bet. If the initial roll is a seven or an eleven the player immediately wins. If it’s a two the player immediately loses.
