    I have a few "triggers": when the roll is an X, I bet a Y.

    for example:
    roll of 9, bet a yo ("9-11")
    Roll of 5, bet $2 hard 10
    Any craps, Bet.a horn hi something

    Anybody else have similar triggers?

    After the point is set and a 2 or 12 is rolled I always bet $5 on that number. $150 or bust:headbang:

    When a 2,3,or 12 is thrown place $5 on the field.

    Just a fun distraction.

    To be fair, every craps strategy is just a series of triggers.

    I don't have any fun ones though that I do for luck/superstition.

    I dig your 9-11 trigger though. I may have to start doing that just for kicks.

    Usually, I"ll bet these "triggers" if the stickman returns the dice to the shooter the way they (the dice) fell....

    - 9 (6&3) rolled, bet E/T
    - 6 (3&3) rolled, bet hi/low
    - 4 (2&2) rolled, bet ace-duece/yo
    - if the wife/gf walks up and asks the shooter , "How you doing?"....I called my bets off on the next roll:beer:

    Not me, though I enjoy watching everyone else's.

    Half the fun of craps is the show.

    This guy (that I had been playing with for 5+ hours, I think I even took a break and came back and he was still there so I jumped back in), we also outlasted a table and they booted us to the last remaining. (MSS)
    was telling me how his buddy rolled 5 midnights in a row, so he was betting it all night. Never hit.
    The table thinned out, he quit betting it, so I started 3-way betting it for me, him, and shooter..
    I think I did it three or four times and we got one. A cheap and entertaining distraction, shooter was hitting points.

    I've heard point 9 bet 5.

    I have 2 others
    After a front line win of any kind, bet "10 action- hi-lo-yo 2 each, hop the hardways 1 each"

    if point it set hard, bet $5 - hard ways, high on the point

    After 4 non-field hits in a row I will sometimes toss $10 on the field.

    After the shooter sets a point on the come out I put down odds behind my passline bet and place the 6 and 8, does that count?

    I have a few but one I use:

    If the dice goes off the table I off my place bets for that one roll.

    I tried this on my last trip a few weeks ago. I think it was 60% that the next roll came up as a 7. Basically it is just superstitious so just my opinion.

    I had a really cool dealer at the cosmo once, MJ,
    so when it matched the point, I'd hop (and hit a few times) 2:3 and 4:5
