If you are at a casino and are unsure about the rules
concerning odds, ask the dealer. If only single odds
are allowed and a nearby casino offers double odds,
go to the other casino. It is definitely to your advantage
to do so if you're a right bettor.
I suggest this because it doesn't pay to give the
casino one inch in terms of their advantage; the casino
isn't going to give you one millimeter. Take full
advantage of the double odds, and if you use the methods
advocated by this Site and get a good roll of the
dice, you'll have the pit boss screaming for mercy.
I've seen a double odds table on the Strip in Vegas
where the players in a couple of hours took the table
for close to $300,000 because double odds were permitted.
I've known instances of other monster wins at double
odds casinos, where eventually the casinos gave up
and wouldn't allow double free odds.
Double odds are the key to big wins for the players.
Once you understand the games fully and study the
basic strategies for winning at casino craps, you'll
be in a position to make the casinos cringe if you
get a hot roil going.
final note-free odds bets may be removed or reduced
at any time by a player, but since they work in favor
of the gambler, they should never be taken down.
Don't Pass and Don't Come
don't pass bettor can also make free odds bets. If
single odds are allowed, the casino permits the wrong
player to bet an amount equal to the payoff, rather
than equal to the original bet. Let's explain this.
If don't pass bettors have wagered $10 on the line
against the dice and the point is 4, they may now
bet $20 as a free odds bet against the point, at odds
of 2-1. That is, they are laying 2-1, or $20 to collect
$10. If they win the free odds bet, they'll collect
$10, or a sum equal to the original don't pass bet.
this language, players try to get their opponents
to pay them off when they have good hands and to fold
when they have bad hands. This is when the deceit
and lying come into play. If a bet truly meant, "I
have a strong hand," then that would be the end
of it unless the opponent had a very good hand of
his own. Poker is a game of incomplete information
with a lot of built-in deception, though, so confrontations
are frequent. Good hands get paid off and bluffs succeed.
Of course, because most players are aware that everyone
is trying to deceive everyone else, good hands often
don't get paid off and bluffs frequently do get called.
Perhaps because of this underlying acceptance of deception,
questionable ethics can creep into other areas of
poker. These are situations for which there are rules
and these rules and ethical guidelines need to be
enforced for the good of the game.
