    Hello everyone,

    I'm going to London in a few weeks and took the MyVegas reward of "Super-Odds Chips" for the Hippodrome Casino. These are non-neg. chips (use until you lose). They can't be used for even odds bets at roulette (red-black etc.). They can be use for every other bet at any table game.

    I want to use them at craps. What are the best bets to use them for?

    Only pass line / odds bets or risking more and taking the prop bets?

    Small/tall/all bet is available there. The odds for the props are better there too. Payouts for the prop bets are 33 to 1 or 16 to 1. Hard ways are 9.5 to 1 or 8.5 to 1. So much lower house edge on these bets.

    What would you recommend?

    Enjoy London! I wouldn't play at the Hippodrome. I hate that casino. It is the only one in London that has introduced 8 decks on Blackjack. It's a CET property so its not surprising... That being said, you should play your chips this way: http://wizardofodds.com/gambling/promotional-chips/ While long shot bets have the best returns, you have to account for variance, so I stick to the even money bets that are best.

    After you're done with that, head down the street to the Napoleon Club, sign up, and play there. Make sure to bring your passport if you are a US citizen. They have 4 deck blackjack and better games.

    THank you very much for your answer. I intended to only take advantage of the free chips there anyway. I'm German, so there should be no problems needing my passport to sign up

    Small update here. The Hippodrome is definitely not a CET property as it is independently owned. The Empire might be the one you are thinking of.
