    i've never seen anyone hit a fire bet
    i've hit the small/tall/all and was short 1 number (the 12) from hitting it all twice during one session so that became my favorite instantly
    on the last trip, i tried the repeater bet and actually hit the 9 twice during one roll and it was a nice little payout

    these are the only table feature bets i've seen in vegas
    are there any others?
    which is your favorite?

    the small/tall/all was my favorite because i hit it before ... but it's not an easy bet obviously
    i think i like the repeater now

    I like the small/all/tall myself, probably because my last trip I hit the small and I've never come close to seeing/hitting a fire bet

    I like the small/tall/all. hit it twice and came close a few times. What's the repeater and where is it? That sounds interesting.

    I've never seen a six point fire bet hit. I did roll a five point fire bet once - yes I was on it.
    I personally like the small/tall/all bet better. I don't bet these bets all the time, just when the feeling hits.

    I play all of the feature bets. I like the fire bet the most for the fact that you only have to Bet it once per shooter unlike the others where you have to place after every 7. I have played a lot of craps in my life I have won one 6 point fire bet and 6 or 7 5-point and several 4 point. I have also hit the all bet 7 or 8 times. And I hit a couple of repeater bets at v/p on the last trip.
    The repeater is at the Venetian/Palazzo and you bet on a number and depending on the number you pick it had to hit 2 to 6 times before a 7 is rolled and pays 40 to 90 to 1

    Rolled a few 4 number fire bets and 1 five but no 6.
    Hit the ALL once before.
    Prefer the Small/All/Tall but since they are only at MLife properties I don't play much as I mostly play CET.

    It's funny as the CET properties in Atlantic City have both the fire bet and all tall small bets on their tables.

    a repeater bet requires a shooter to roll repeating numbers from 2 to 12 before any Seven .
    Each number has a different requirement

    the 6 and 8 need to be hit 6 times before it pays out 90x
    the 5 and 9 need to be hit 5 times before it pays out 80x
    etc. etc.

    this is the exact game i was playing this past weekend

    i had the 9 hit five times TWICE all the way around during one shooter's roll so my $5 bet on the 9 paid me $400 + $400
    i had $5 on numbers 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11 several times
    other than the 9's hitting, i don't think i got paid on any other number.... maybe once on the 4 which paid out 65x

    you can find small/all/tall bets at non-MLife casinos now

    it's a blur since i played at so many different hotels but trust me, they're there

    Hmmm the repeater sounds interesting. If you don't mind me asking, which number did you bet on?

    There are 10 bets and you can bet all of them for $10. I usually would just place one number for $5. I think I hit the 4 a couple of times maybe a couple of 2 or 12.

    A few Vegas CET properties changed to the ATS bet in January. Caesars and Harrahs have it for sure. I believe Rio has it as well.

    I've hit a 5 point fire at O'sheas and the small/tall/all at Luxor. The Fire bet was more exciting. I especially like that I can bet it and forget it. I don't have to re-bet it after a 7 on the come out.

    I know the odds on the Fire bet are terrible but I'll still play it.

    On previous trips to Vegas, I was always required to bet the table minimum to be eligible to place a Fire bet on the shooter. However, last week when playing at Cromwell, O'sheas, and Linq, that was not required. I was placing $1 Fire bets on every shooter even if I had no other bets on the table.

    Also of note, I noticed Planet Hollywood was changing the felt on one of its tables last week. I checked it out and saw it had the Repeater bet instead of Fire. So maybe Planet Hollywood is transition to all Repeater bets?

    What's the house hold on the fire and all/tall/small bets? Probably listed at www.wizardofodds.com .

    Just looked it up:
    Fire Bet pays back 79.24%.......I believe this makes this thee worst bet in the casino.
    Tall/Small pays back 92.24%......about the same as a slot machine.
    All pays back 92.54%......about the same as a slot machine.

    Fire is hard to hit, but ATS kills you with the 7. Prefer the fire, have rolled 5 fires three times, but never a 6.

    Rolled a six fire twice but did not bet it either time.
    Once in Harrahs AC five years ago and once in Ballys LV four years ago.

    Caught the full ATS back to back at Aria on Jan1 2015.Had $10 each on All,Tall,and Small.
    I usually don't start off playing it anymore as I'm always afraid to stop because it will surely come up on the next roll.
    If the table is hot I may start playing it two ways but the big reds on the come out make it frustrating.
