One of our members expressed his desire to play the don't but doesn't understand how to place the odds bets. Here's a brief outline if that helps. Odds on the don't are just like playing odds on the pass line as referenced in the craps sticky above, but in reverse. In that scenario we base our odds bet on a $5 table. 10 or 4 pay 2 to 1 5 or 9 pay 3 to 2 6 or 8 pay 6 to 5 So if we bet 5 on the pass line, we put 10 or a multiple of 5 behind our pass line bet. In that way we are paid the full amount on our free odds bet, 5 will get you 10. 10, 20 and so forth on a 4 or 10 (2 TO 1) On the 5 or 9 it's 3 to 2 so we have to bet 10 odds to get back 15 with a $5 dollar bet, as 5 behind the line won't achieve the full 3 to 2 pay off. On the 6 or 8 we bet $5 odds gets back 6, 10 get back 12 and so on. The odds bet is based on our line bet, if we of course have made a point. The don't pass line is exactly the same but in reverse, we must "Lay" the odds. In other words we put up the larger amount in odds to be paid in lay odds if the 7 hits, after you have made the come out roll and achieved a point. If we are using multiples of 10 which makes it simple, we lay 20 to get back 10 ( $30 total) on a 4 or 10, Lay 15 to get back $10 (and of course the original 15 making it $25 Back to you) And $60 to get back $50. (or any multiple of 6 gets back the respective multiple of the number, (5 back to every 6 or multiple thereof bet plus your original bet.) This sounds more confusing that it is. The dealers will help you if you ask but I recommend starting on a fairly dead table so as not to slow down the game. And of course tipping a helpful dealer is always appreciated. So why would we want to do this? It's fun. And I for one win more often on the don't. In fact, I rarely play the pass line anymore. Most of the high rollers I see are on the don't. The odds of the payback are ever so slightly higher, and when you get a few numbers out these working with lay odds you're gambling that 7 will come and save you. And when it does, That's good. You win all your bets and are paid all at one time. Zero to hero! The downside is that if a shooter on the pass line side keeps hitting his numbers you watch your fortune dwindle in short order, but it's better than losing all your bets at once when the 7 hits and you have a bunch of numbers working across the board with odds on the pass line side. Then all your money goes bye bye at once. Bummer! How you play has no effect on anyone else on the table, so don't worry about that. Some players don't like to see a don't player winning every time they Crap Out! They get " Crapped out " Over it. So I say, Give them some cheese! Because you can't have whine without cheese, right? Have Fun!
