How do they keep track of all this "middle of the table" action?

What happens if you have an, "All" bet working when the shooter makes a point and decides to walk away? Does your bet carry to the next shooter?



As stated above, the next shooter would "finish" the previous shooter's rolling, and then still get to shoot his position. This occurs for the fire bet as well, which I have seen happen.

I have to say, for the 175 to 1 payout, 8% house edge is not awful.

Thank you all for the info. I can recall only a few times when I have seen rolls where every number was covered. It is a true longshot.

Ive seen this at the Silver Slipper in Mississippi. I was doing some casual playing & decided to bet on Small (2-6 before a 7). I just needed a 6, and would have won 32 units.

I like how the Slipper is set up because I can bet Small, Tall, and All. Small & Tall pay 32:1 and All pays 175:1. So if you have a bet on each section, you can win 239 units. Definitely not bad for a 3 chip bet. It may be a sucker bet, but none of the casino odds are stacked in the player's favor anyway.

A casino that is in Biloxi, MS has some craps bonus bets which are probably sucker bets, but I was wonder what the probabilities were:

ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL
All the numbers BUT seven will be rolled before a 7.
Pays 175-to-1.

I went to Vegas and they had same side bet.
I happened to nail it with $5 bet and it paid $875 !!

Any bet that depends on escaping Ole Mister Seven for any appreciable length of time is definitely a longshot. If it pays great odds, it no doubt SHOULD pay even greater odds.
