FWIW: The bought 12 in Tunica is way under 1%. A $35 twelve pays $209!

Less than half a percent which is impressive, especially for a long shot (one in seven) bet in a sucker game

Too bad it’s in Tunica. Mississippi!

As an inducement to book more action, casinos might consider allowing bettors to buy the four or ten WITHOUT paying vig, thus allowing true odds, provided the bettor has other, "normal" bets on the layout of equal or greater value.

All casinos allow this on all point numbers...it’s the free odds bet

once upon a time in New Mexico this was done on several casinos. Santa Anna Star was one culprit, a no vig buy starting at $10

a 'bought 12' is a bet where you are a winner if 12 comes up before 7?

never heard of it.

the well known one roll bet of giving $35 to the dealer 'for a 12' would pay $1050 , but that bet loses 35/36 times

That’s Crapless Craps, where all numbers (other than 7) are points. I’ve never played but I know how it works

It’s only a bet in crapsless craps.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I’ve never been there. Hell, never been to NM.
But the Santa Anna Star is often mentioned for STILL doing that.

Gotta wonder why only in New Mexico has there been recently price wars amongst casino craps tables.
A loooong time ago remember Fitz in Tunica rolling out the fifty cent pieces matching Grand Casino with paying $14.50 on the 5/9, $19.50 on the 4/10 for $10 automatic buy bets, $25 5/9 paid $36.50!

The last time I was at the California, (3 years ago?) they had 25¢ chips so you could buy the 4/10 for $5!

And they only used them for those small bets. IE. buy for $20 or more, including odd amounts, and the vig is multiples of $1.
