I hadn't thought of this one before, but I think I'll try it soon:

Bet thirty two across.

if the four or five hits, put six bucks on the six; if nine or ten hits, put six bucks on the eight.

Do not press six or eight: if they hit, take the profit and keep it up, hoping to press via hits on adjoining numbers.

The six and eight are most likely to hit again... so why not press your luck on the event that is most likely to occur? Or rather MORE likely to occur since at all times SEVEN is the MOST LIKELY event to take place?

I usually do that, placing six and eight only.

This is just another play, a way to hopefully build up the six/eight while taking a profit every time they hit.

YMMV

If you're at a \$5 or \$10 table, try this:
a) Buy in for \$200 or \$300. Get only green chips. Keep these 8 or 12 chips separate from anything else you play with.
b) Start a series by tossing out a single green chip as \$12 each 6 and 8. Set the \$1 aside. Obviously if you lose these bets you're -24.
c) Each hit, press *both* the 6 and 8. I generally use the following progression:
\$18 (set \$2 aside; if you lose here you're -22),
\$30 (use the \$3 you set aside before; if you lose here you're out the whole \$25),
\$42 (pocket \$11; if you lose here your net is -14),
\$60 (pocket \$13; if you lose here your net is -1),
\$90 (pocket \$10; if you lose here you're still +9),
\$120 (pocket \$45, now you start to make money).
d) It's rare to get to \$120 but I've done it a few times. You can either keep pressing or sit there with the \$240 total action, waiting for 7-out. It's especially exciting when there is a streak of five or six 6s or 8s to start off and suddenly you've got large stacks on the layout while everyone else is sitting there.
e) Regardless of whether you win or lose, make the next wager using what's left of your original 8 or 12 chips, don't dip into your winnings. When those initial chips are depleted, count up your winnings and decide whether you want to keep going.

If there are boxes being thrown, then you are going to win regardless of how you play, unless a dont player.. How much or how little is the variable there unless you power press and never take any profits in. Inevitably, the 7 is going to wipe out the board... and more often than not, you wont get even 3-4 boxes out of a shooter. Once in a great while, you will see that long roll that you dream of, but it is quite rare. So, how about taking some larger risk off the bat, say 640/650 across (100 per number) and after you hit 1 or 2 numbers, go off on your bets. You now have anywhere from 140 to 390 profit. Now walk away a winner. If you need to stay on the table for your fix and want to play a while, then take part of your profit and shoot for the moon....but you will most likely lose that and then do it again and again because your pissed. Management and discipline are key. Yes, if the dreaded 7 comes within 2 rolls , then tuck in your tail and try another time. If it happens over and over to you , then stay away from the tables and try a different game.

80% chance that 1 number hits.
64% chance that 2 numbers hit.

If this works for you, great!! You're giving the casino limited advantage.

My travel time to a casino is 90m each way. Spending 1 minute at the table doesn't do it for me.

I was in AC this weekend with friends. They were barking about taking down the house in craps. I gladly joined them on the tables. I tried to expain my logic to them about being Disciplined and Expectations. Hit n run and don't get too greedy. Long story short, we all played on the same table, same shooters, same time. I went off on my numbers frequently... just looked for a couple of boxes from each shooter unless someone very negative shot or slowed up the rhythm of the dice.

After coloring up, I was up 300% and each one of my friends lost everything. They could not go off on their bets and would not manage their rack wisely. One buddy tried going back and forth between pass and don't pass... that was comical, as every time he switched, he would lose. (talk about dice having eyes.. boy were they were watching him ..lol) The Only way to play the game is to play the probabilities to your favor and hit n run. Your only advantage in craps is being able to take down your bets when you want and being disciplined. MDK=HPS

But when you come down after a hit or two you give up the chance, unlikely though it may be, that the shooter will go on a tear, giving you many hits before sevening out.

This rare event helps make up for all the losses you'll sustain when the shooter sevens out before any of your box numbers hit.
