expected return on a roll of 2 = (1/6)*2 = .3333

expected return on a roll of 3 = (1/6)*3 = .5

expected return on a roll of 4 = (1/6)*4 = .6667

expected return on a roll of 5 = (1/6)*5 = .8333

expected return on a roll of 6 = (1/6)*6 = 1.0

the sum of the above is $3.50

So that would be the cost per game to break even

(fair game)
