How about the secret of making more money with come
If you’ve bet come or don’t come before,
you know that the key to profits is the ability to add "free
odds" to your flat bet -- and give the casino a zero advantage
on those added odds.
Wanna know the secret that craps pros use to increase
their profits and actually make more money than the person next
to them making the same come bet?
Let’s find out!
When you bet, the dealers have a lot of power and
can give you breaks they don’t give to other players. You
can get the dealers on your side if you tip them. Just place bets
for them on the pass or come line, hard ways, or just toss them
a red chip "for the boys!" In turn, the dealers will look
out for your bets and even bend the rules just a little bit. They
want you to win so you’ll keep on tipping them. And, if you’re
on the come line, the dealers can be a tremendous help to you.
When you make a come bet, you should always ask
the friendly dealer if you can add more odds than you’re allowed.
You have nothing to lose by doing this, whether your flat bet is
$5 or $50. If you are at a 2X odds casino and you have $10 in the
come box and the point is five (or nine), you are allowed to place
$20 odds. If the number hits, you win $30 for the odds (at 3:2)
plus $10 for the flat bet for a total of $40. If however you ask
the dealer if you can add $30 odds (instead of $20) and he lets
you, you’ll win $45 for the odds plus $10 for the flat bet
-- that’s a total of $55! So, you have $15 more, just for
asking for a small favor.
You can do the same thing on the don’t come
line. If you’re at the same casino and have a $10 don’t
come bet and the point is four or ten, you can lay $40 to win $20
in odds, so your total win would be $30 ($10 + $20). Ask the friendly
dealer if you can lay $50 (to win $25). So, instead of $30 you’ll
win a total now of $35 ($10 + $25).
Remember all you have to do is ask the dealer if
you can make a certain bet for a certain amount. The worst that
can happen is that he’ll say no. This method is being used
by many experienced crapshooters to maximize their winnings and
minimize the house’s edge. You will be increasing your odds
bets to the absolute maximum the casino will allow. By doing this,
you are squeezing every last drop of profit you can from the casino
-- and all you have to do is ask!
