What are some systems people use to make the most in craps from a \$100, \$5 or \$10 table?

Goal:

Looking to lose all or win a decent amount (\$400 plus)

Also looking to play for more than 5 minutes (Have some fun)

Looking for something different than pass line bet odds, press after a win, repeat.

I'm not looking for a guaranteed win or better odds.

Looking for a strategy where I lose all or get lucky with a decent win and play for a little while.

Thanks

\$5 table. Bet \$22 inside including. If any number hits (5/6/8/9) drop \$5 and press 6&8 to 12 each. After that, if either 6 or 8 hit, press them both \$6 each (\$2 change) OR press 5 and 9 \$5 each (\$4 change). If 5 or 9 hits (and are \$5 each), you can drop \$5 to press 6&8...or drop \$3 to press 5&9. If they are \$10 each, you can press the 6&8 \$6 each (\$2 change).

Or bet \$10 on 5&9. When either hit, drop \$1 and power-press to \$25. When it hits again, you can either:

-Collect \$35
-Press to \$35 (\$25 change)
-press to \$50 (\$10 change)
-press all the way to \$60

If you're a badass, you press it to \$50 with \$10 change. Next time it hits, you drop \$5 and power press to \$125. If that hits, it pays \$175. If that's good enough for you, you can take everything down and walk away. Or a total harass would full press to \$300, then full press to \$720, then the following roll collect \$1008 OR press to \$1000, drop a \$28 toke/hand in for the dealers, and collect \$700. Quick road to riches, my friend, if someone can roll enough 5's or 9's before a 7.

But of course, every system or whatever is -EV and you expect to lose in the long run, and you usually lose in the short run. But is definitely very fun if/when you're on a hot roll!

Also see your other thread - e.g. start with \$6 one/both 6 and 8 then creating numbers or use \$22 across as above. Technically just pushing the 6 and 8 is best as (I'm assume it's the same in the US) they have lower House Edge than the other numbers. Also if you're trying to get to a fixed target it's easier to add up how much you've got on the table and could quit as soon as you've got there. On the one side 6 and 8 might not come up that often on a hot roll, or of course they may just come popping out like peas.

PS If you're going to do \$22 or \$32 across, you might as well do a pass bet and then you can back the number with true odds.

Find a table where the 2 in the field is paid triple and the 12 is double and play it.
From what I understand the EV is +/-0

Both the 2 and 12 have to pay triple for a 0 edge bet.

Gotcha, thanks for the correction. I'm just learning the correct plays. I appreciate anyone who corrects misinformation.
I know there's a few tables in Vegas and on the Strip that have a Field like this. Does anyone know where they are located?

I believe that is false. I think both pay triple at Santa Ana Star or one of the casinos near Albuquerque, and at a casino wizard visited in either panama, Dominican, Puerto Rico, or Costa Rica(I have no idea where, just remember the detail from one of his reports on gambling in X country)

Probably the most fun I had playing craps was at jokers wild \$1 table when they used quarters and I got to bet \$5.50 inside and press my bets \$1.25/\$1.50 per hit.
