The Secret of Multiple Odds Tables
Pssst...! Wanna know a secret?
How about the secret of winning at multiple odds tables?
Many casinos now offer up to 100X odds to their craps players. Did you know that you can place odds for any amount under 100X as well? For example, you can take 17X odds, or 3X odds if you want to. This can be very profitable if you are betting pass-line as well as come bets.
Wanna know what craps pros do to take advantage of multiple odds?
Let's find out!
First, you need to find a qualified shooter at a 20X or more table. Make a pass line bet and when the point is established take one unit odds and place one unit in the come box for the next two numbers, and take one unit odds on both of them. Then, just wait for a decision.
If you win on any numbers (pass or come), bet the same way on the next come out, but this time take two units odds on both your pass and come bets. One more positive decision and bet three units, then four units, then five units, etc. Note that you are increasing your odds bets by one unit when you are winning, while the flat portion remains the same. If you only win on the pass line but lose your two come bets, keep the odds bets the same, for the same qualified shooter.
If you lose a bet, go down one unit on the odds only. If you get down to single odds again and lose, you're finished with this bet. And if you get down to single odds on all three bets, take a break for a while or find another table. Or, just switch to the don't side and play this system with don't-pass and don't-come bets.
This is a terrific system when it comes to a hot shooter. Your profits will multiply due to the increased profits brought on by increasing just your odds bets. These wagers will increase only on a hot table, which gives you a better chance to catch a good roll. You'll be in position to win all three initial bets at 1X odds, win all three at 2X odds, etc.
Remember, you always increase your odds bets only while winning and decrease them while losing. You should also have set win/loss limits and adhere to them. You don''t want to give all of your winnings back to the casino!
Give this a try the next time you play at a multiple odds table.
Pssst... Now you know the secret of winning at multiple odds tables!
