Craps Maximum Odds Bet

Craps Strategy Video Information:

Craps Maximum Odds Bet is a a video discussing advice I hear a lot which is “you should always max out your odds bet.” But is this good advice? In Craps Maximum Odds Bet, I not only describe the common misconception but always showing a live craps roll that gives an example of the volatile results of maximizing your free odds bet.

  1. It proves, you can't win if you don't play. And you can win and you can lose. Funny thing is, you can't win it all, but you can lose it all.

  2. Hi Color Up. You have nice videos and demonstrations. You should have continued with paying out the odds. If you forgot to put them down, so what. Just correct yourself and then put them down. Its not a real game. The whole debate about whether a casino will or will not pay you if you forgot to put the odds down is irrelevant to the point of the video. Don't lose track of what the video is about, no odds vs. maximum odds. You didn't have to worry about whether you should put them down and pay or not pay. Of course put them down. We forgive you. Lol. That is the whole point of the video , no odds vs. max odds. That's why people are watching the video.. Its nice you are trying to keep it as close to a real game as possible and follow the correct procedures etc.. but in this case we forgive you.

  3. 100X odds is offered at Cromwell, $5,000 maximum. huge bankroll a must. my suggestion is buying in at $10,000…goooood lucky, 🦆ies!!!

  4. you can play pass line with no free odds bet and last a long time…variance is without zig-zag spikes.

  5. A business man from Austin Texas who made annual pilgrimages to a Vegas Casino named Binion's Horseshoe bet like this. He would bet thousands, tens of thousands on the Pass or Don't pass. He won 4 years in a row. In 1985 he bet $1Million in the same manner and lost. He took his life in his room later that evening.

  6. You are right, bank roll size should determine how much you bet but this is like saying the guy betting on a 50/50 coin flip should not wager his life savings on the outcome. For a better test you should make a betting unit comparison. Compare 5x odds with placing 5 numbers. This is why people harp on maximizing odds. Lets say you bet $60 per established point, $10 on pass and inside number place bets with an average house edge of 2%. Let's say You get through 12 points/hr. 5x odds has the expected loss of $10x12x1.41% +600 x0% = $1.70/hr expected loss. If you don't take the odds and use the place bets ….. $60x12x2% or $14.40/hr expected loss. On a weekend Vegas trip with 20hrs of gambling you are expecting losses of $34 for pass line 5x odds or $280 for no odds and place bets! It may be boring but it really does add up….. Err disappear more slowly 🙂

  7. While I disagree with forgetting the max odds on this simulation. I do think the viewer investment makes this a good example of why you should always pay attention at a table.
