Just got back from a great weekend in downtown LV. Had something interesting happen at the craps table, and would like some experienced players' opinions. Was playing at a break-in casino that I won't name because they treat us well and I'm not trying to embarrass them with this post. Was placing/buying all the numbers, pressing them up every other hit, and drinking quite a bit. A few hours into it we catch a hot shooter who ended up rolling about 16 eights before sevening out. Every other time the 8 hit I'd tell the dealer to "press it." I didn't name any specific amount to press it to, and in all honesty I lost track of how much money I had on the eight. Eventually I'm up to somewhere between $350 and $400, but some odd amount, not $360. It hit again, and the dealer couldn't figure out what to pay me. Here's where it gets weird, neither could the pit boss, who I found out later was actually a blackjack boss covering the craps pit due to some mix up. Dealer and pit boss literally stand there looking at my place bet for about 2 mintues. I was cool about it, certainly didn't pressure anyone or act impatient. Finally the dealer at the other end of the table whispers to the pit boss what she thought the payout ought to be and that's what I got. But here's where it gets even stranger. After I was paid off (and had pressed the 8 even more), the pit boss comes over to me and tells me I was out of line for making non-standard-sized press bets. I told him I wasn't making any particular press at all, just telling the dealer to "press it" and I was happy with whatever he took it up to and with whatever I got back each time. Still, he said I was my responsibility to make sure my presses ended up at standard intervals. Well, I was winning so much by that time that I let it go and things went fine after that. Afterwards, I was talking to my brother who had been at the table about whether I was really in the wrong for not giving the dealer more guidance as I pressed my bets upwards. I think that if you tell the dealer to "press", it's his obligation to take it to an amount that he'd be comfortable paying off next time it hits. A part of me wants to go one step further and say that a casino should be happy to have any large amount of money placed on a number, and shouldn't criticize the player for any type of bet, even something crazy like $391, but that wasn't what happened her. Water under the bridge now, but curious what other craps players thought. I hope I wasn't in the wrong, because I like to drink enough when I play that I don't care to keep too careful track of my own bet amounts. I know, not super smart, but I like to have fun and not think too much.
