Been playing craps a few years and have won a couple of thousand here and there. Last week I bought it for $1000 and started playing. Was down to $300 when the dice headed my way. I usually stick to the pass line and 6/8. I hopped the 6's for $90 and hit 3-3, that's where the fun started. Pressed the bet up to $180 and hit another 6. Went up to $300 and hit 3-3 again, and the rolled a forth 6. Crazy! Proceeded to make six points and a bunch of numbers I bet on. Cashed in $11,800.

Nice hand!

Congratulations. I imagine the whole table went wild.

They did when the third 6 hit, no one else was betting on it though. When I looked around after my roll it didn't seem like the table made much money, which surprised me. It's a smaller casino and I've noticed that a lot of players either bet the field or chase the hard ways. I must have rolled for 40 minutes which is a career long for me. I was blessed to be at a table in the Palazzo where a guy rolled for over an hour. There must have been close to $30,000, probably more on the players side that night.

You had 300 left an you hopped 6 for 90?

I guess it's possible.

$30 $30 $30 on the three hops. Had $25 on the line too. Had some more money in my pocket, main reason for hopping the 6 was to try and get a hit and not reload.

As a professional craps player I have had many great wins. I usually grind at craps although once I colored up for $75 at the Mohegan Sun.

$25 passline, I was shooting and made 12 passes in a row, worked it up to $1000 (no odds) by pressing according to the Fibonacci series. Cashed out +4200 or so. Harrah's Tahoe, a long, long time ago.

Most recent trip went well. Shot 7 sessions on strip buying in for $1k each time, $500 more on two occasions. Ended UP on all but one session when I was dragged away for dinner plans. Here to fore, say it with me - "F*#k food, I'm shooting!" Finished the trip up $5k after tips and being down at every Pai Gow poker attempt.

Best run was at Mandalay for around 30+ minutes. It's fun to hear the the stick say "He's still shooting," to his relief on dealer rotation. In for $1k out with $2.6k.

My last play was at NYNY, total session was over 4 hours, it was a grind most of the time and did require the extra buy in. It finally got late enough that several players bailed, leaving 3 or 4 of us. A few minutes later it was my turn. I think I made one point then had a come out streak with 8-10 naturals. Went on to make several points enough to get ahead by about $1k.

My play is strict, contract bets only, pass and two come, full odds over $15. (plus tips)
Don't forget, "FREE" is a four letter word.
