Hey folks, just be glad you can do all this math.

I'm so slow at math I just have to accept what the dealer shoves my way. Else, I'm five rolls back mentally.

I am white and my entire family on both sides are white, I was completely offended. It doesn't matter what colour you are, everyone should treat everyone with respect. Nobody is better than anyone else! Period!

Btw Darkoz I'm not objecting to anything you said lol just adding to it. I agree with what you posted. 😊

They round down. So it would be -EV.

I've never seen a casino round down. Not sure they can legally do that.
By the way, I wasn't offended, just surprised by the ignorance the OP displayed.

If he's from Iowa, that's all you need to know!

Just curious, but have you ever seen someone place the 6 or 8 for $5? Theoretically, if it hits it should pay $5.833333... to $5. I think they always pay just $5, meaning that they round it down from a 7:6 payout to even money, because they don't have chips to pay out the fraction.

If you had a don't come $5 wager that moved to the 9, you might typically add an odds bet in some multiple of $3 (to get paid $2 for each multiple of $3). If instead you made the odds bet $10 and the 9 failed to hit, then I think you would win $5 for the don't come bet and just $6 (instead of $6.66666...) for the odds bet.

Iowa is much different than vegas. they often forget to pick up DC bets,especially when theres a full table and an 11 hits.
