The Hoppin Hotness thread got me to thinking about the craps layout.

On some images on the web of Craps Layouts there is a betting area closest to the Stick that is labeled "Any Craps" that seems to serve the same purpose as the Any Craps "circled C" betting area that is designed to be player specific.

Example_Craps_Layout

What is the rationale for having both Any Craps betting areas on the layout? The only thing I can think of is that the "C" & "E" circles seemed to always be used on the come out roll. Does that mean if you make an Any Craps bet on a non come out roll, it will always be placed in the box shaped "Any Craps" betting area?

Slightly Off Topic but find me a Casino with the same Odds (Hardways/Horns) listed on the Craps Layout you referenced above and I would make a Killing!
Craps is the most "Jekyll and Hyde" casino game ever invented!

I'll start by reminding you that craps players are the most superstitious bunch you'll meet.

Yeah, the "C" is generally for a "C & E" bet.

There are plenty of players that will bet the World, Hi/Lo/Yo and Craps Check, etc., that do not bet "C & E". Put their craps check chip onto a "C" circle and you'll hear about it!
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

The C & E circles are later additions to the Craps layout.
For many years they were not there just the boxes.

The C circle is still used for just a Craps bet.

When one chip or one stack of chips is placed between the 2 circles now it is a C&E split

The line between the any craps box and the 11 boxes can also be used for a C&E split bet

Just many different types of layouts have evolved over the years.
The photo you linked to shows no HORN box that is very common nowadays.

Thanks to those that have responded so far.

btw the wikipedia craps layout has the error of "to one" all over the place, when it should be "for one". If you go to the "talk" tab that's me protesting some time ago to no avail.

It is primarily to organize the bet marking at very busy and bustling table of potential railbirds where some folks are betting Any-Craps (their bets would go in that area) while others right next to them are betting the C-And-E (their bets would go in the pairs of circles corresponding to each player). You may have noticed the arrows on each of the C-E bet zone pairs. They point to the position of the player who made the bet, as an informal way of "numbering" the positions. Organization is also partly why there are separate "Horn" and "World" zones, even though the clump of $4 or $5 you'd otherwise have to place as $1 bets separately is the same. The other reason for these zones is to cater to player impulse.
