TheOtherOne,

Re: the 2 and 12.........as you said, they are even. As for the dealers asked that, since they see thousands of rolls a wekk, they should know that.

Here's another classic:

What are there more of, Winners 7's or 7-outs?

Ask a few dealers in Biloxi these questions, see what they say.

Good Luck!

Lep

ah yes, I see now. That is funny. I will definitely do that to the dealers in Tunica the next time I am there too -- those guys were a bunch of comedians...but they were also good and good to work with. Which helped because i spent 8+ hours there around them lol.

I will ask this to the Biloxi dealers as well.

    What rolls more, three (ace-deuce) or eleven works, too.

    Everyone will say eleven because it's a way more common bet, so more noticeable when it hits.

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          I went to Mohegan Sun in Ct. the other day, I lost $200 in 1 hour. I was up $150 at one point, and down to $20, it was a roller coaster. I have made more money and make more money playing numbers. I play license plate numbers, phone numbers, birth and deathdays, amounts on my utility bills. I never use a system. The classic is this Denny's commercial I kept seeing the other day, a deal on meals $2, $4, $6, $8, I said to my wife, oh, got to play that for the next 10 days, and the next day, 2468 falls straight. No, I did not get it in, I was wasting my money at Mohegan sun lol..... Oh well, $10k down the drain, live and learn (still).

          I've seen people walk up to a crap table and lose $1,000 in 20 minutes and I've seen people lose $1,000 three times, but then the fourth time, when they reach into their pocket for another $1,000, they make $20,000 and walk away.

          GOD is great, beer is good and people are crazy! Crazy

            It sucks when it pans out that way -- you get up a good bit but keep going, not knowing when it will start going downhill and before you know it, you are out. Works the opposite way too -- sometimes you keep playing and HAVE to walk away or else your wife will leave you at the casino forever and possibly divorce you if you dont leave with her.

            This underlines the importance of teaching the wife:  you never walk away from a heater at the craps table!

              Todd, I seriously want to understand your method of craps but I can't figure out what you mean. You bet a don't pass ok, waiting for a seven. Then come bets on each roll. Well, when the seven hits you lose all your come bets??? What's up?

                It's actually "Don't Come" bets I think.  On each roll you place an odds bet on the last roll's Don't Come outcome, and place a new Don't Come bet.  When a seven hits you get paid on each odds bet and number you have played.  It's definitely a more challenging way to play, just to keep up with the action.

                  Ok that's more like it. And remember to keep your eye on the yo and 3. It's uncanny how often they hit. We've mad some serious change playing them. Yes you will lose some, but it seems to always come back big. A nice hedge bet is the yo and 3 with a field bet also. You break even till the yo or 3 hit. Good luck!

                    on my last trip playing craps, I discovered the beauty of the C & E bets, particularly on the come out roll. YOu can place a $2 C and E bet and if you lose your pass line bet with a craps roll at least you have this as backup.

                    works good for insurance on the pass line, and a bonus if the eleven hits (get paid on the pass and the E bet)

                    It really made me happy when I was shooting, setting for a 7, bet on passline and bet on C and E and I hit something like a 7, 7, 11, 7, 11 :)
