Caesar's dropped from the 35-175-35 to 30-150-30 sometime in the last two years. These bets are atrocious now.

I enjoyed betting the 175-1 on occasion and hit it for $5 once, but 150-1 is just robbery, so I don't bet it anymore.

I've bet it several evenings when it was 35/175/35. Probably played craps 12-14 times with it the last 5 years (I don't play craps much), won the all twice, the tall alone twice, the small alone not. Almost always a 2 way bet for $6. So I'm well ahead of it, and the dealers love me. Lol...

I think it's a fun bet for those odds. I won't play the lower paytable. I don't play the center, and i don't play if the min on a/t/s is $5. It's just a fun bet, and that's me.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I play at the Hammond Horseshoe, where it's 35/175/35, and I play $2-$1-$2. What I like about it is that it hits often enough to make it fun (unlike the fire bet). I was there 2 days ago at a full table, and in one and one-half turns around the table, the small alone hit one, the tall alone hit once, and the all-small-tall hit once. The dealers had a one to two dollar bet up there each time, also. That one and a half time around the table took two and a half hours due to some good rolls and a lot of prop betting.

I'm a low stakes craps better - minimum pass line bet with double odds if it's a five dollar table and single odds for a ten dollar table, and one come bet with the same odds. I like being able to be happy about an additional number hitting, especially when it's a craps after I have my come bet locked in.

In general, wagers with very high top payouts have a higher house edge associated with them.

I truly do not understand the mindset of most people who play craps. I mean, I do, but I don稚. I don稚 believe the justification that people love to bet a little to win a lot. Most people who bet these bad bets do not bet a little, they actually bet a lot. It痴 like people who argue that roulette is fun because of the huge 35-1 payoff. But not really. Most people cover enough numbers that the payoff is really only like even money across all bets.



Remember, gambling is a form of entertainment

Losing small amounts, like the ATS bet, can easily be shrugged off. But it痴 hard not to whoop it up when it hits.

True, its not much fun to lose but as a famous signature line reminds us If The House Lost Every Time, They Would Not Spread The Game. Basic strategy gives us the best shot at winning but its still a game in which the house holds a slight advantage on the pass line and much more substantial advantage on any of our more exotic "impulse" bets.

I have seen a few casinos on the strip paying 150 to 1 on the All bet but does anyone in the Vegas area pay 175 to 1

People, such as myself play it because a) we find it fun and b) it carries bets with the lowest house edge in the casino.

Also, F.Y.I- I've hit the "All" twice but never won a penny since I won't bet it.
