    I love craps but one of the things that always makes me hesitant to play is that I get it mixed up how much you should bet for payouts that won't make it difficult for the dealer. Can someone explain for all the different bets?

    Pass Line - Does not matter, correct?
    Pass line with odds - When do you typically place this bet?
    6-8 - On a $10 minimum bet, what would be the amount you bet here minimum? $12?
    5-9 - On a $10 minimum bet, what would be the minimum bet you want to do here?
    4-10 - Same as above
    Hard ways - This stays out there for the duration of the point, correct?

    6-8, bet in multiples of 6. So, yes, bet $12
    5-9, bet in mulitples of 5, $10 min
    4-10, bet in multiples of 5, $10 min

    hardways stay out until either a 7 is rolled, or your hardway # hits a soft version of that #

    $30 pass line odds will always be correct for any point on a $10 pass line bet...placed after the come out roll behind the line of your pass line bet.
    place bets as mentioned above
    Hard-ways stay till you take them down (not a contract bet) or until that number is thrown either hard or not or a 7 is thrown. Will remain active between resolved points.

    if the point is 5 or 9 don't place odds in an (odd) amount. as it pays 3/2. If you had a $15 odds bet you should get paid: $22.50 but they don't have 50 cent pieces. so you would just get $22.

    Hardways: You may get asked if you want it on/off during the come out roll after a point is made.

    I am still learning myself. So if I am wrong someone please correct me

    Pass Line Odds or Come Bet Odds

    If the point is 4 or 10; pay out 2:1; Bet multiples of $5
    If the point is 5 or 9; pay out 3:2; Bet multiples of $6
    If the point is 6 or 8; pay out 6:5; Bet multiples of $5
    If it ends in E then you need Even Odds (FivE and NinE)



    PLACE BETS

    Numbers 4 or 10 pays 9:5, so bet in multiples of $5
    Numbers 5 or 9 pays 7:5, so bet in multiples of $5
    Numbers 6 or 8 pays 7:6, so bet in multiples of $6

    Odds on the 5 or 9 just need to be an even #, you could do multiples of $6 but the dealer would probably not like you, at it is not common. Just bet $10,$20,$30,$40) ect.

    Edit:, but yes, if you ware trying to conserve chips, and just want to go over $15, you could put $16 odds on.

    You can bet any amount on the odds for the 4 or 10.

    Others have answered what amounts to bet so you get full payments, so I want repeat those Learn what you should get paid on any given bet and don’t worry about the dealers, if he gets it wrong correct him or her that’s is their job.

    I teach people, "Five, Even, Any" as an easy way to remember what pass line odds to bet.
    It means start in the middle with the 6 & 8 = bet multiples of five.
    Start moving outward both ways, 5 & 9 = bet an even amount
    Keep moving out to the ends, 4 & 10 = bet any amount

    3X / 4X / 5X is an easy strategy to know payouts (assuming your bankroll an afford it.)

    $10 pass line bet.

    On a 4/10 point, put $30 odds (3X your pass line bet)
    On a 5/9 point, put $40 odds (4X)
    On a 6/8 point, put $50 odds (5X)

    In all cases, your payout is $10 on the line and $60 for the odds for a total of $70.

    If your bets start increasing, even multiples of $5 for your "even" bets may make the dealer payouts a little easier...

    or they will tell you to throw a few ones and pay you out in reds- if they're that good.

    and the place bet version of
    "Five, Even, Any" (for Pass/Come Odds)
    is Sixes (for 6/8) and Fives (everything else)
