    Big Red. Sometimes I'll hedge the Big Red on the come-out when I have a lot of come bets out on the lay-out.

    If Big Red shows I lose my come bets, get my odds back, and get paid by the Big Red to off-set my come bet loss.

    I don't. Ever.

    On the come out I will clap when it comes up and say, "Yes, get them all out of the way now." That's about as close to referencing it as I get.

    It's called 'Big Red' although referring to it as just 'red' also works.

    I have heard "Big Red" quite often, but don't normally say that. I just don't refer to it at all, not because I am superstitious, but rather because many other players tend to be. I really find I never need to refer to the 7, except possibly when explaining the game to a newbie friend. In those cases I have always explained to my friend about the superstition, and then whisper anyway.
    I think it is silly.

    By the way, I'm not superstitious at all. I call the 7 "Big Red" out of consideration of all the many players on the table that are superstitious.

    If I had my way I'd call it the "fuckin 7". Except on the come-out. Then I'd just smile and take my winnings.:thumbsup:

    "the number that I shall not mention"

    "that one between 6 and 8" when newbies are at the table and asking how to play the game.

    And like many others I say red or big red

    Superstitions.

    I wasn't really superstitious until I started playing craps (other than never stepping on the white lines when I played baseball).

    I have been trying to break myself of the ones that I have picked up though. But I won't say seven while at the table.

    Never Say Seven at A Craps Table

    unless you want to be shunned and possibly punched out. .

    Don't ya know Craps players are a very superstitious bunch, and there are certain things that rub them ragged.

    A new female on the table is lucky, but if you're a guy, never say so.

    Don't touch the dice until it's time, and never never let a shooters roll hit your hand. You may be SHOT.

    Use one hand, never switch hands, you will be chastised.

    And never say SEVEN at the table.

    50's are bad luck. Never buy in with a 50.

    Don't count your chips until you are done, or you will LOSE!

    So what do I do?

    I come up to a hot table, and say, How do you play this game anyway? I throw down a 50, get my chips and put it on the Don't Pass Line. Then I say, I'm Joe McBlow from Kokamo, and I've Got Nine Pound Balls!"


    If I make the Come Out Roll I lay those odds to the max and max the Don't come, spread the Hard Ways (two way of course) and then say "Come on Seven!!!"

    I am without a doubt the most popular player on the table, let alone Las Vegas in it's entirety.

    Yes I have been followed, and it scares my wife, but I'm packin so So What?
