If you have never played Craps the wrong way or the "Don't Pass /Don't Come" rather than the pass line you are among the vast majority of players. You do need to know a little about how to play the don't before you get your money out there. It's not really a learn by doing thing unless you just won the lottery, but It can be allot of fun if you know what you are doing. First of all , on the don't you are betting on the don't pass line that you won't roll a 7 or 11. If it does come, you lose! A 2 or 3 wins,(12 is a push) any other number becomes your don't point. After the come out roll if a 7 hits, you win! The exact opposite of the pass line. You lose on the come out roll on the don't on a 7 or 11, 2 or 3 wins, ,12 is neutral,it's a "push", no harm go again. If you make your point on the Don't Pass come out roll the odds shift dramatically in your favor because the 7 hits more times than any other number, there are 6 ways to make a seven. Then you have to lay your odds, that is to say you must put up the higher amount of the odds formula. For instance, because a 10 or a 4 pays 2 to 1 on the pass line, on the don't pass you have to put up10 to get back 5, or MULTIPLES thereof. 5&9 Put up 3 to get back 2. 6&8, 6 to return 5 and so on. You do this by setting the odds bet next to your Don't Pass bet and say "Odds or Lay Odds". The dealer will position your chips. Why does that make sense? Because you are twice as likely to hit a 7 before a 10 or a 4 so the odds are two to one in your favor. The odds on the other numbers follow respectively, and you MUST lay the correct multiples of any given odds for any number, 4,5,6,8,9or10. That's where your brain has to do some work. The dealers aren't going to help you more than a couple of times on this, because the casino makes more on their odds if you put up the wrong amount. Like, putting up 10 on the odds if your don't point is a 5,6,8or 9. You must put up the correct lay odds to win the maximum payback when the 7 hits. So then why would you want to go to all that trouble? Here's why; Lets say you've gotten lucky and made the come out roll several times, and have a few numbers up with lay odds. There's a whole lot of your money out there and you are the silently saying to yourself, COME ON 7 ! You're on edge, then that 7 hits! Mama I'm home! They scrape down all your bets and pay you all the money at once! What a rush! That's what it's all about, that is gambling. To me, if you can afford to lose it and it won't cause you pain then that's not gambling, so if that big win REALLY makes your day then it's "Baby's Got A New Pair Of Shoes!" Same goes with the rest of the game, "Don't Come" with lay odds, getting two or three don't come numbers up with lay odds. Don't betting the numbers on the spread, and so on. So if you really get this game down and you just can't seem to get on on the Pass Line you might try the Wrong Way, (as it's called). Just keep a low profile. Many Pass Line Bettors don't like a don't player on the table. OK, I feel you man. But after all, when I win that's a good thing for me. Ever been on a cold table? Is it any wonder that many of the Greats all play the don't?
