I was recently playing craps in Vegas at a 10 dollar table in Vegas with some friends. They are all gambling neophytes so I just told them to bet the pass line while I bet the pass and the come every roll. At one point I had all the numbers bet except for 9. A shooter hit the point, and on the new come out rolled a 7, everyone celebrated except for me since I had lost the 10 dollars I had on each number I had bet. Normally they return the odds to you and take the bet in that situation, but he just left it there. Later on in the session, he did it again!!! This time, I only had 3 numbers but I had now saved 80 dollars.

So my question is, does anyone know how big of an edge would you have in that situation if the dealer did not take your come bets when a new point is being established and a 7 is rolled. I imagine you would have a pretty sizable edge. This probably is not a common occurrence but I will definitely try to engineer this situation in the future at a busy table!

That depends. Had your Come bet's point been made, would the dealer have paid off? If not, then the edge is zero.

If so, then the edge depends on what was the pass line point, and what was your come bet point.
Let's say the shooter throws a 4 on the come-out, then you make a come bet and the shooter rolls a 5.
Your "edge" is in the situation when:
(a) The shooter throws a 4 before a 5 or a 7 (a 5, and you win your come bet normally; a 7, and you lose it normally);
(b) The next roll is a 7, possibly followed by additional 7s - and this assumes the dealer thinks your come bets are still "off";
(c) Either the shooter throws a 5 before a 7, or the shooter makes a point before a 5 or 7, in which case you repeat (b) and (c).

Something tells me that the minute the dealer didn't pay off a winning come bet on a come-out, or didn't pay a winning DC bet on a 7 on the come-out, the bettor would have complained, somebody higher up in the casino food chain would have pointed out the error, and come bets would start losing again on 7s on the come-out.

By my calculations (which may very well be incorrect), the edge on a come bet that does not lose on a come out seven (once established) goes from -1.41 to +2.16.

This does not take into account odds, and assumes that all come out sevens (again, once the come bet is established) are missed by the dealer.

This has happened to me a couple of times. I don't know the edge though.

Describing this situation as 'cheating' is pretty ridiculous as is the reference to some sort of collusion based on the facts presented. After all the times I've seen the house 'no call' a bet AFTER A WINNING ROLL while previously scooping up the chips from a similarly placed LOSING bet, I have no problems with players benefiting from some penny-ante dealer lapses. As for the threat to alert the house, that is some serious weak sauce and would definitely lead to some heated customer on customer 'interaction' in Philly.

What about a roulette player who pulled the favorable denomination-switch trick with her chips on three different occassions?

and of course you have played Roulette in most all the casinos in the world.

I wonder why I am asked to be on Roulette teams more than Bacc teams these days.
maybe because I am fat but pretty even one team did say I did not have enough money to offer to them
hey, their loss

sure an old scam that still works very well today all over the world and the casinos still seen clueless until they get hit more than one time

I only say it is easy because the 3 times I tried it
I was successful and the Roulette Dealer and Floor person was sorry to see me cash out so soon.

2 times I wore no makeup and jeans
that had to throw them for a loop loop

Yes, a fat but pretty girl joining the roulette table without jeans would indeed throw folks for a loop loop.
Personally, I feel being a hypocritical windbag about the topic of cheating would make me a poop poop.
