yes, there is a definite strategy to it. you win as long as you don't roll a 5, 6, 7, or 8.

how can you lose?

The Santa Ana Star either did or does have a 0% House Edge on the Field, so in the extreme long run, you're expected to neither win nor lose playing it if that is still the case. I've heard it mentioned that one other casino may do this, but I forget which one. The Santa Ana Star also has no vig on the Buy Four bet, to my understanding. If you are actually getting your play rated (i.e. getting comps, eventually) for playing these bets, then you are playing them at an advantage.

...Santa Ana Star...


They still have No Vig on Buy-4 and Buy-10. Sadly, the Field only pays double on 2.

Yet no DI's participate (amazing).

You could have a break even or +EV craps situation off the top and no DI's would show up, that's a fact.

Craps is the only game supposed AP's don't look for good conditions or +EV situations. They don't like adding .5 to 2% extra. It's against their religion.

Field bet is a simple bet, that what makes it so attractive to many players. You don't have to call props and risk your money on 4, 10 or 9. Sometimes field numbers show more often and players think that it's a good bet, in reality you getting paid 1:1, while if you bet the field numbers you would be paid more, in some instances 30:1. Higher the risk, you should expect better rewards not 1:1 pay.

I deal the game at corporate parties for entertainment. Once I had a crowd betting the Field really heavy. They almost had every chip in the bank taken from me. They kept betting it.

Five minutes later, and I am not exaggerating, five minutes later I had every last chip of it back.

Sucker bet?
