I play full odds at 100x, and Iím usually the only guy playing max odds. It always puzzles me that people would rather play $1000+ place bets than full odds.
In the high limit rooms and at places like Caesars, there are black and purple bettors all over the place. These guys could be max odds bettors at another casino. They love the trappings of opulence, I guess.
Also, part of it comes down to the fallacy that odds bets are terrible because you have to hit the number twice, whereas a place bet, you only have to hit it once.
I agree with you. Put bets are the best bets to make when you can take 100X odds (heck, even at 10X, a put bet is better than a place bet in most cases.) They also solve the "problem" of having to hit the number twice.
Cromwell is the new Casino Royale.Quote: klimate10
Thatís very true.
Some places donít allow put bets, for this very reason; they want guys staying on the place bet.
When guys get chatty, Iíve tried telling guys to do put bets, but itís like talking to a wall.
The Cromwell does allow put bets. I was explicitly told this by a dealer just this Saturday, coincidentally.
Santa Ana Star is the only triple/triple field bet Iíve ever seen. And they have free buy 4&10. Now they cap bets the promo bets at $100.
You can effectively gamble and have fun for free, if you maintain discipline. You also have a better chance of winning versus a -EV game.
does the Santa Ana still give comps for just doing the 0% HE bets all day?
Cromwell attracts random Strip riff raff. If I'm going to sit back and enjoy myself, I'd rather play at a table with fellow grinders than at a table where people are constantly buying in for 100-200. No sense of community and it slows the game down too much. And I don't think I'm alone with that viewpoint.
Thanks. I happen to run across the someoneís thread on WOV. Thread was from 2016 and piqued my interest.
I was just at the Cromwell this weekend for a short while bc of a business trip. For a Saturday, it was dead in there. For whatever reason, the Cromwell isnít doing well. The line for the Drais beach club had like 40 people. Maybe they need to loosen their comp policy bc theyíre tight with the comps.
