In Horseshoe Hammonds in Indiana, they have a bet on the craps table called Low Dice/High Dice in the corner of the layout where you'll usually see the Big 6/8 bet.
Low Dice covers 2,3,4,5,6 High Dice covers 8,9,10,11,12. It's a one roll bet, pays 1:1 on all bets except 2 &12 which pays 5:1.
That sounds like what he was talking about, because he was saying there was a lot more numbers. This sounds about right, if a bunch of shooters roll a couple of twelves or twos and seven out, you can just bet both, pushing every roll, then collected 4 on 2 and 12. This must've been it.
The house edge is double the field bet. The field bet has a house edge of 1/36, this high/low would be 2/36.Quote: CrapsForever
I didn't notice it until the end of my craps session. I played the high dice, rolled a 12 and got $50 for my $10 bet. Apparently, a lot of people were playing both sides at the same time, hoping for the 2 or 12; only the 7 hurts you. Not a bad play at all, wonder the house edge on that compared to a regular field bet?

Think about it. The high and low numbers cancel out. But you get an extra four pays on a 2 or 12, but you lose 6 out of 36 on a 7.
