It's not entering your switch statement because of your while loop

while(TotalMoney > 0)
            Counter = Counter++;

There's no way for this loop to exit.

If you want your switch statement to be inside the while loop, then you need to add start and end braces{}

Example:
      while(TotalMoney > 0)
      {      
            Counter = Counter++;
            
            switch(SumOfDice){
                  
            case 2:
                  if(Counter == 1){
                        TotalMoney = TotalMoney - Bet;
                        cout << "SORRY!! You did not win......:( PLEASE TRY AGAIN!!" << endl;
                        break;
                  }
                  else if(Counter > 1){
                        cout << "You did not roll your POINT!! PLEASE ROLL AGAIN!!!" << endl;
                        break;
                  }

The case 8 section is missing an end brace.
      case 8:
            if(Counter == 1){
                  cout << "Your Point is Set at " << SumOfDice <<" Please roll again" << endl;
                  break;
            }
            else if(Counter > 1){
                  TotalMoney = TotalMoney + Bet;
                  cout << "WINNER!!! You rolled your POINT of " << SumOfDice << " You Just won " << Bet <<" Dollars" << endl;    
                  break;


And case 12 is also missing an end brace.

Actually, case 12 is missing a start and end brace.

Also case 10 is missing a start brace.

You should also add a break statement after each else-if condtion statement.

In looking at your code, it looks like you also need to move the while loop much higher in your code, so as to include the random input and the user input.
