if someone could help me out with the continue... it would be much appreciated... right now i just have a big long if statement, and im trying to get it to use less code... thanks
ugghh...no offense, but that is kind of a mess. For starters, you need to learn how to create methods. Most folks around here will tell you your main method should only be a few lines long. For example, you could create a method that computes the next roll. Inside that method, you would get the two random numbers from 1-6, total them, and just return the value. (Granted, this might not work if you want to allow hop bets)
Also, you should check out the java API. Specifically, if you look at the String class and the methods it has pre-built, you can simplify things like your line 93 (equalsIgnoreCase).
You should never write
it is unnecessary, and is prone to mistakes (think about what may happen if you accidentally type (stop = false)...)
just do this:
There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
