A few years back a retired police officer from Toms River took on the AC casino policy on dealer toke payoffs.

While playing he noted that when he placed a bet on the 6 or the 8 the casino paid off the bet at $7 to $6. However if he placed. $1 toke on those numbers for the dealers they were only paid at even money.

He felt this was unfair and complained to the casinos. He concerns fell on deaf ears.

He took it to the next level and filed a complaint with the NJ Casino Control Commission. He was granted a hearing and he testified before the board.

The CCC agreed that it was not fair to round it down to an even money bet.

So as a result a $1 toke placed on the 6 or 8 pays the dealer $2

This is the dealers favorite toke bet. It is also a sign that you are a knowledgable player.

I didn't know this, that is really great. I'd be happy to put $1 on the 6 for the dealers if this is true

I'll be damned, for once I am taking the casino's side LOL

actually I must misunderstand something; at 7 to 6, a $1 toke should just pay even money ... unless you mean the toke pays $1 plus the $1 bet

Put up a $1 bet for the dealer. If it hits the dealer drops.$3 into the toke box

Yeah, those $1 tokes pay $2. And some casinos allow you to do a piggyback, so the original bet stays in play.

The last time I was in ShowBoat, I saw pink $2.50 chips (the kind normally on a BJ table), at the craps table. The sole purpose was to save 50¢ on the rounding. Needless to say, they did not allow piggybacking.

I wrote about this, here:

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. 🤗

the worst part is that when it hits the dealers have to take it down rather than leaving this monstrously +EV bet up.

if you are ever toking the dealers in NJ you should only be making $1 sixes and eights for them.

Do it when you know a duel rate is working the floor, and you might get extra EV in the form of being overrated. It's possible anyway.
