So I was out at my local casino tonight playin craps like normal. And there is always this old guy there who ALWAYS plays a midnight $1 parlay. He Hit it twice tonight lol Since my local craps game pays 30 to 1 its a $930 win for a $1 bet. If we were on the strip in Vegas on a 30 for 1 table it would be a $900 win. So the question is if a craps table had a spot in the prop bet area that was a big square that said "Double 12" or "back to back 12" and the pay out was 900 to 1. Do you think the casino would get a lot of prop bets on it?

I would think that the casino would get a lot more action then they world normally get for a parlay bet. A parlay bet is something that the average craps player doesn't know about or doesn't understand. Would this bet get tons of action? No, but it might get some.

30-to-1 should start with a $1 bet that pays $30 on the win (and you get to keep your original $1). The new total of $31 is parlayed and when it hits, pays $930, for a total of $961 down.

I think it would get a lot of action on that bet from the people who have never played a parlay bet at the craps table. Of course we always make parlay bets at the sports book ;)

I just think it would be confusing for the dealer is all. He would have to put a button on the bets that were made before the first 12 came out, or something like that.

actually I got fooled *yet again* by the "for one" as opposed to "to one" ... geez
