    Just got back from a Vegas Trip and had an interesting situation happen.

    I only play craps and my styles pretty aggressive. I press until I hit the table max from 60 dollars on the 6 and 8.

    2 Craps Boss were arguing over how to rate me. I could tell as I overheard one of them saying "...hes pressing the whole time." Finally, another pit boss came over and settled the situation.

    I'm curious if anyone know what the rating would be for me? As some people told me they only rate your initial bet and not your actual bets.

    At my home casino, I'm pretty friendly with the pit boss and they know my style, so they rate me for all my presses, my odds, etc. They love me there though...

    2 Questions:

    1) Any idea how they would rate me in? Would it just be the initial or the full amount of the press?

    2) Cesar's Pit Bosses - Does anyone feel like the craps pit bosses at CLV don't rate you accurately? It seems like I only get rated on my initial bet, and when I get pass 3 digits, then they'll walk over and check out what's going on. Doesn't feel like they're very accommodating. Probably because I'm just a relatively small fish in their steroid enhanced pond. I don't know, but I just get bad vibes playinh at CLV, but love that 3 to 1 payout on the 12 for the field too much. At Cromwell or PH or any other CET properties, the Pit Bosses are just awesome. They'll come tell me my avg bets and chat me up without me asking.

    They use a computerized system. Every few minutes, a pit boss will look at the table and enter into the computer how much money you have on the table. So your rating really depends on what they see, at the times they look. If they catch some of your action on hot rolls, you will get a good rating. If the table is cold, or they only see the start of rolls, then your rating will stink. In theory, they will see an assortment of action, so your rating will be accurate.

    Of course you can ask them how they have you rated when you leave, and argue for a little more. This may work if you have been tipping the crew. Also, there may be some disagreement on how they consider the odds bets.

    Meyers has it exactly right.
    The problem is they will rate your starting bet and periodically enter a new number.
    If they miss part of a hot hand or don't update the number frequently you will not get credit for your pressed bets.
    Some box people are more vigilant than others about rating.
    I was playing a couple weeks ago and the box did not update the ratings for 30 min.They missed a huge hand where my average bet went up 4x the original.

    BTW agree with you about CLV.Lots of old school dealers and PB.Unless your betting multiple black or purple you won't get any love.

    So is it better to bet bigger initially and then move to a smaller bet?

    I think the computer will average it out over time, but the initial bet would at least get you up there to max ratings and then it's up to the PB as to when he looks again. If he looks when you are low playing then it will hurt or he can forget to look for a while and your rating will look good from your initial bet.

    Like discussed, it seems we are at the whims of how diligent the PB is while he is manning the table.
