"Having skin in the game," can also be interpreted differently if you're a good looking 20s to 30s female hustler. I've seen the same girls masterfully penetrating a craps game with no money and walking away with hundreds. I don't know if there is a name for them, but let's call them Craps Tricks (CT) for now.

I can't tell if they're prostitutes or just hustlers, but I've seen the same women slowly get themself situated to a craps game to "watch and learn." When all the horny men strike up conversations why they're not betting, the CT's tell them that it's their first time and they don't know how to play. They also tell them that the game looks intimidating and they're too scared to put their own money to play. Amost with 100% certainty, the men will drop them a passline bet and put odds behind them to get friendly with the CT. I've actually seen these CT's work a whole table and get thrown a bunch of green and black chips for rolling well. A lot of times, they have no wager, but they roll because the box knows it's good for business.

I wouldn't be surprised if these CT's pull in close to 6-figure a year.

I've heard them called "Virgin Marys", rather sarcastically. I'll admit to floating a bet for them when I'm feeling mellow and wildly ahead. Why? Gambling is mostly entertainment for me--my goals are to win a decent amount and have fun. Talking to some eye candy (but guarding the chips) is as good a way to spend an evening as any. Sure I might be passing up megabucks, but as my handle says, I am retired and very comfortable.

I say let the eye candy trade on their good looks. The looks don't last long anyway.

No judgement here. I rather admire these "Virgin Marys." They're no different than "Bottle Rats," who are good looking girls who sit at night club tables and drink/party at the expense of bunch of dudes who paid thousands to reserve a table. The only difference is these Virgin Marys are taking home hard cash without risking any of their money and somewhat keeping their dignity. If you are satisfied with spending some time at the craps table with eye candy and you're rendered some tips to them in exchange, that's a great mutually beneficial arrangement.

Sorry. I never fell for that... making bets for them.

Instead I married them.

Why does every casino require me to have a line bet to shoot the dice?
link to original post



This is not true. Anyone with a line bet can enable someone else to shoot the dice on their money. This happens with guys who have money and would prefer for a lucky lady to shoot the dice.

Now that I answered your question, how about you answer my question:

Why do people ask so many fallacious loaded questions?

Here's some more RAA approaches to demonstrate the compound element to your loaded question fallacy:

Ask if you can make a don't pass bet and after shooting to establish the point, ask the casino if they will allow you to remove your bet, but still continue shooting with no other action until you find out if you would have lost or not to decide if you feel like shooting again. Tell them you will ONLY bet if they allow this, and offer to make a maximum bet. I think you'll find that there are casinos that will allow you to shoot the dice with no bets on the felt at all if this cooperation with you means that you are giving up a 33% advantage on the 4/10, a 20% math advantage on the 5/9, and a 9.09% advantage on the 6/8 that would have been to your don't-pass-bet's favor out of superstition fearing an unlikely loss.

Now transitively that I have demonstrated the fallacious nature of your initial question that embeds a false claim in it, you probably have the one-word answer why:

The casino is a business. That is why.

Sometimes the edge doesnt matter. But the payoff does. And I realize that's a controversial statement to make on a forum like this one.

I learned that years ago when I tried to market a predecessor to my Poker For Roulette game.

In short, casinos love gamblers, but hate gambling.
