Depends on where you play and how the staff interprets the rules.

That sort of arbitrary and capricious interpretation is annoying to me. I would certainly question the Boxman for an immediate ruling. Quite frankly, I know some casinos have special deals on certain bets but that is a different matter than some arbitrary and capricious interpretation by a certain craps crew.

On this, the casino makes the call up to the full 5% vig, yet it is also best to avoid losing a customer, unless more trouble than he's worth.

Bottom line: Your mileage may vary. The dealer wasn't cheating. Just lazy.


Again, just avoiding a table skirmish.

Do the Dealers split the bet in two and lay them above the 4&10 boxes, or do they keep them together?

I think I know what you're suggesting. $100 given as $50 each on 4/10 are absolutely placed separately. But purchased together, they should charge $5 vig.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

On a lay bet, vig is determined by how much the player stands to win. Since each would pay $25, each would have a $1 vig. Or total, they pay $50, for $2 vig.
