Habbo Wiki

A **Rare Grabber**, sometimes just referred to as "**Grabber**", is a game of chance in Habbo. Typically it can be tied into the same category as gambling. Players can pay a specific amount/furni to roll two dice, which correlate to a representation of a coordinate grid. The dice, holodice or dicemaster, will roll numbers 1-6. Typically, the grid is 6x6 spaces with scattered prizes and blank spaces throughout. However, other variations of grid size are used, see below for details.

## Instructions

Conversation between the owner and player usually adopts a similar structure to this:

- Player asks the Owner for the price of the Grabber. The Owner then tells the Player the price.
- The Player pays the set price in coins or furni and is allowed into the booth.
- Two dice (holodice or dicemasters) are rolled, the two dice relate to coordinates on the grid.
- If the square has any items on it, the Owner will trade the Player these items as a prize.
- If the Player loses, the Owner will give him/her to option to play again, watch or leave.

## Odds

It may be worth to calculate your odds. For example, your roll fee should be worth the prize value, in theory.Easy way of profit determination:

^{(For 'multiply by bet ammount' prizes, simply enter this information into your equation. E.G: If betting 5 coins and there is a "x4 bet" just add in 20 coins to the math!)}

- Add up the value of all prizes in the grid.
- Divide that total value by 36, since there are 36 possible grid rolls. (This is true on 3x3 Grids too!)
- The solution to this division is how much you should expect to pay for a roll. If you pay 5 coins for a roll and the average roll will only earn you 2 coins, maybe you should search for another game.

### Example of Odds

*(Note: Prizes and Fees offered by individual players will vary, every single time!)*

Say the following game is offered:

-Entry Fee: **10 Coins**.

**4**Rares worth**20 coins**each.**5**Stacks of**10 Coins**.**10**Ducks worth**1 Coin**each.

-This would Equal: **140 Coins**.
-Divide this by 36, since the odds of winning a specific slot is **1/36**.

- This outcome is an average of
**3.9 Coins**.

This means, though you paid **10 coins** for a roll, your real odds of profit is about **3.9 Coins**. So, you would probably loose an average of **6 coins** per roll, in this case!

### Actual odds in grids smaller than 6x6

REMEMBER: Holodice and Dicemasters will roll 1-6. This means that, no matter what, you will only have a 1/4 chance of rolling for any slot in a 3x3 grid!

(Simply divide 36 by amount of spots. Rarely, rectangle grids are used, like 4x6)

Grid Size | Probabiliy of rolling a space in the grid |
---|---|

1x1 | 1/36 |

2x2 | 1/9 (4/36) |

3x3 | 1/4 (9/36) |

4x4 | 4/9 (16/36) |

5x5 |
25/36 |
