Most of my posts don't make sense.



Your post made perfect sense...What didn't was that a casino would have a craps table only offering ten times odds, no single, double, triple etc. accepted. I remain in misery and flabbergasted as beating one's own head against a urine soaked concrete wall in the Philippines only cures certain ailments..understanding this rule by a casino isn't one of them.

Wow Sure hope I never go to the Philippines.

The only reason I can think of is SPEED and the dolts inside that Eye in the Sky being unable to compute payoffs that are 2x or 6x or something. So the casino decided to make it 10x or Zip.

As to that Gilpin casino in Black Hawk with its two dollar table at 50x odds; I don't know why I keep spelling it Gilpen, I do know that it is Gilpin but somehow my keyboard has a mind of its own.

Can anyone contact TravelZork in Vegas?
I understand that they sent a representative to the one-day early Soft Opening of Ocean Resorts (nee Revel) and that the person they sent there is the one who reported that there was a Five dollar craps table with 5x odds and also a Ten dollar craps table with 10x odds but that the Ten dollar table was limited to either 0x or 10x with nothing in between accepted.

You are right the expected loss rises from 14 cents to a whopping 35 cents.



That's a pretty significant difference over time.

I can play 2.5 times as many hours at 14 cents a decision as I can at 35 cents a decision.

I'm also more likely to leave the table a winner under the 100x odds situation.

Betting 100x is too much money for me unless I found a ten-cent table. But if I wanted to bet say $200 at a time, it would be nice to be able to bet more of that at a better price.
