In Singapore, the casino pays Double on the Field 12:

That got me thinking about the good old days of paying Triple for Field 12.
Love doing the 'Anything but 7' strategy when the point is 5:
Point = 5 max odds, Place 6&8, and put $ on the Field.
You make a profit on every roll till a 7 shows or the 5 is hit.

yeah, Triple pay for Field 12 is 2.8% House Edge but it's a fun way to break up the monotony of 3point Betty strategy, especially if you're at the table for 6+ hrs at a time.

If Field 12 pays double, the HE= 5.6% so i havent done that strategy in a while.
Which casinos still pay triple for Field 12?
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)

My information might be outdated, but paying triple on box cars used to be the norm for most Reno casinos. It was so at the Nugget during my last visit (2021?).

Vegasrider should chime in!

Bally's West (formerly known as Golden Gates) in Blackhawk, Colorado pays triple for 12 on the filed. They also offer 100x odds, and a $5 minimum Monday through Thursday (goes to $10 on Friday - Sunday). They are, AFIK, the last casino in Central City or Blackhawk to offer a $5 minimum craps game. The rest are all either $10 or $15 minimum
