The Secret of the Fours and Tens
Pssst...! Wanna know a secret?
How about the secret of the fours and tens?
The four and ten pay a handsome 9:5 reward, so if you bet $5 on both numbers, you will win $9 if either one hits. Of course, if you bought the same numbers you would win a little more, but you will need to make at least a $25 bet on both ($50 total) to make this profitable.
Wanna know the secrets that craps pros use to profit from $5 bets on the fours and tens?
Let's find out!
What you will be looking for is three hits on the four or ten to make your money. If the shooter is a good one, you will more than likely make this play, and this is how you'll do it.
First, place $5 on both the four and ten. Let's say now the four hits and you win $9. Take both numbers down and you have $19 in your hand ($14 from the 4 and $5 from the 10). Add a buck to this and place the four again for $20. When you win you get $36 plus your $20 back. Pocket the $6 and place the four a third time for $50. This third hit wins you $90, and you take it all down. You have turned your initial investment of $5 into $90 in only three hits.
Of course if the ten hit first you would be betting on that number instead of the four. And, you should bet only if the shooter is qualified to bet on - does he bet big on himself and look like he will be a good shooter? If not, don't bet on him - find another table or wait for the next shooter.
In 36 sample rolls, you should see 3 fours and 3 tens, a total of 6 hits - the same number as the 7, so choosing a good shooter is very important. Once you do, this three step play will work more often than you think. It's a great way of turning only $5 into $90 in a short amount of time.
Give it a try the next time you see a qualified shooter!
Pssst...! Now you know the secrets of the fours and tens!
