What is the biggest action you have seen on craps?

As we speak in Crown Casino in Melbourne Australia a well known US poker pro is having in the order of $10k place bet on each number plus $10k the line with full 2x odds plus $10k come bet every roll taking full odds. Easily the biggest action I have seen on a dice table.

Bellagio ... saw a player bet $1k on the Pass Line then $1k on the Come for 2 more numbers. With full odds, it was $17 thousand.

L'Auberge ... saw a player bet $500 on the Pass Line with 20x odds and also $500 on the Come for 2 more numbers. With full odds, that was $30 thousand. Took the casino for over $100 thousand in 20 minutes.

Monte Carlo of all places at a $5 table. A guy cashed in a marker for $50k and started playing $500 don't pass with multiple don't come bets of $100-500 each. Full 3x4x5x odds on everything. When he walked up, my wife was shooting and was on quite a roll! He lost about $25k before he switched to the pass line and then she immediately 7'd out. He was standing right next to us and we tried to strike up a conversation, but he was a total ass... no love lost here!

This doesn't qualify as the biggest betting I have ever seen in craps but it was far and away the biggest showboating episode I have ever seen in a casino.

I walked by the craps pit in the Mirage and one end of one of tables was roped off but no one was there. A little later a player showed up with an entourage including a trophy blonde on each arm. Staff kept everyone away from him and he spread about $200K of chips in the trays.

I never saw him play any of his big chips but fooled around with a few blacks for about 20 minutes and then left. Spent more time showing off then betting and didn't even get a bet out most of the rolls.
Be careful when you follow the masses, the M is sometimes silent.

I've seen big, but last night on my way back from a Midwestern swing, I stopped at Harrah's Joliet. There was a $10 table, but they offer 500x odds. There was a gentleman betting $10 pass and come every roll and taking full odds ($5000). The funny thing is, the casino (or at least this table) didn't have anything higher than purple, so the guy had a couple of racks of them. He was shooting, and had all of those chips, and the fire bet was 4 points already. He had $100 up FOR THE DEALERS on the hardways. Of course, when I got there, he didn't make his next point. He walked away with at least 6 figures. Have you ever heard the dealers say "$800 and down!" I hadn't. They got about $3k in tokes from him. Wow.
