The put bet at craps

23 October 2010

Dear Frank,

My name is Ro and I have developed a vast interest in the game of craps. I just finished reading your latest book Casino Craps: Shoot to Win! and have referred to many chapters quite often. I recently have applied your techniques of dice setting and am having some success.

Being that I'm 20 minutes from the new Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, just wondering if you were thinking about trying the tables there. I would love to meet you and get you to sign my book.

They have five dice tables and only have usually two open. The dealers are still learning but obviously the box men are quite knowledgeable.

Also, at the Rivers, I was surprised to learn that you can make a line bet at any time during the game, even after the point is established. Is this common in other casinos?

Sincerely,
Ro

Dear Ro:

There are two types of line bets allowed once the point is made. You can make a regular place bet on the point and be paid the house way on that (i.e., $7 for $6 on 6 and 8; $7 for $5 on the 5 and 9; $9 for $5 on the 4 and 10) or you can make a "put" bet on the line, which is paid even money. The casino will allow that place bet to be made right on the pass line. It won't go up on the number. However, it is exactly the same as if it had gone up on the number.

On the "put" bet you can take the full house odds. Some of the "put" bets with full odds can be considered good bets. Recheck the book and you will see a complete chart of the house edges on the "put" bets.

Most casinos will allow "put" bets but very few players know about the bet so you will not see it made that often. The place the point bet is made frequently.

I am giving you a free 30-day subscription to my 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
