The fire bet at craps

17 July 2010

Dear Frank,

In casinos that have the "FIRE BET" what is the best way to quickly analyze that I may want to invest in a possible HOT ROLL? What casinos have the "FIRE BET"?

See you in the casino,
Phil

Dear Phil:

There is no doubt that the fire bet is a truly intriguing wager for many craps players, hitting every number when they become your points and winning a lot of money when you do this. There is also no doubt that it is competing for the worst wager in the entire casino -- worse even than the tightest possible slot machine. Yes, the slot machines are better bets than the fire bet in terms of the house edge.

Depending on the payout for the fire bet in a given casino, the house edge can range between 20 and 25%. Now that is a monstrous edge indeed and one that is tantamount to throwing your money away.

Phil, a table was hot; but it is not hot now. In a random game the past does not predict the present or the future, so there is no way to tell if someone who has been hot will continue to be hot. Thus, there is no way to hop on a hot roll since that roll is not predetermined.

My new book Casino Craps: Shoot to Win! has full explanations of the concept of hot or cold tables. It also discusses bets such as the fire bet along with a host of others. You can also learn how to control the dice in words and pictures and what bets are good bets for dice controllers. The book comes with a DVD as well. It is available now at amazon.com and at your local bookstore.

I am giving you a free 30-day subscription to our private members-only website at www.goldentouchcraps.com. We have over 5,000 members on this site, and I think you will enjoy it.

All the best in and out of the casinos.

Frank
