    I almost don't want to share this, as I am afraid if too many people find out, The D will no longer offer this. Still, I have learned so much from this community, so I felt obligated to let everyone know:

    The D rates the odds bet in craps for all comps.

    While there this past weekend, I played a $10 pass line with $100 odds, always on the come bet for $10 with full odds. I was rated with an average bet of $350 to $450 depending on the boxman/pit staff. Considering that the odds bet has zero house advantage, I thought this was excellent.

    Now I was toking like a mini George, so that might have helped my rating too. I did not stay at The D, but with about 15 hours of action, got about $400 of meal comps. So the average bet of craps might not be the same as the average bet of BJ or roulette,etc. My host stated that I would get a suite, limo and considerable meal comps on a return trip.

    Let me know if you have questions. The craps crew at the D was good. Not amazing, but friendly and competent.

    This is good news but I'm not sure if this happens with the regular "low" rollers. I played there last year, $5 pass line bets with single or double odds. Also played the come bet once and a while and played the 6/8 for $6 each. It barely registered and I didn't qualify for any comp meals. I was rated with an average bet of under $20, probably because I didn't always play the come. I also didn't play more than an hour at a time. When I asked for a comp meal the pit boss said that I wasn't playing enough to qualify for a comp meal. Had they counted my odds bets I would probably have averaged over $25 to $30 average bet but it didn't look like they took the odds bets into consideration for my rating.

    Great post. Thank you for letting us know. Can anyone else confirm they have had full odds rated?

    I asked my host about this a while ago, and they told me that they rate odds as well. I wonder if GG does it as well since they're the same company. I'll have to see what they rate me next time.

    I have always wondered if a casino rates odds, do they comp at a lower rate than if they don't rate the odds. So if I went to a casino that rated odds and bet $10 pass/$50 odds and 3 come bets $10/50 so I have a total of $240 avg bet would I get comped as well if I bet $60 on 4-6-8-10 for a $240 avg bet?
    At a casino that doesn't count odds I am a $40 avg bettor vs $240 avg bettor with the same bets.

    I think it mainly depends on the casino. The ones on the strip I think rate lower by default. But, not all places downtown rate the odds. I don't think 4Q does, but I could be wrong. I'd just ask a pit boss at where you're playing, and see what they say.
