After hearing from many players over the past 10 years, that they don't bet Hardways because they are sucker bets, house edge is too high, and so on.
I thought of True-Odds Parlayed Hardways(SM), to encourage players to play them. They go like this:
EDIT: Get paid true-odds on your winning Hardway Bet, if your Hardway Bet hits a second time. Maximum amount that may be bet to win true-odds payout is limited to an amount equal to a true parlay. EDIT:
True-odds pay 10 to 1 on a winning Hard 6 or 8 Bet; and 8 to 1 on a winning Hard 4 or 10 Bet.
If a Hardway Bet wins a true-odds payout, that wager will only be eligible to win a regular payout amount going forward, until that wager is paid a regular winning payout again; after which that wager will be eligible for a true-odds payout again.
A small disc labeled “TRUE” is placed on top of any parlayed Hardway Bet, to distinguish that Hardway Bet doesn’t win a regular payout; but instead a true-odds payout.
A player may wager an additional amount over a parlayed amount; this overage amount will only be eligible to win a regular payout amount.
Example: Player has $1 Hard 6 Bet, Hard 6 hits, Player presses Hard 6 Bet to $20. $10 is eligible for a true-odds payout of 10 to 1, and $10 is eligible to win the regular payout amount. The disc labeled “TRUE” is placed on top of $10 and the other $10 is placed on top of that disc.

I look forward to Craps player input.. Thanks
I'd play it for fun I like to play hard 4 & 10 for some reason. I wouldn't want to be a dealer with this though. I think it would slow down the game even more as dealers "pitch" the true odds parlay offer to winners on the hard way and have to explain to the bet a lot.
As a Craps Dealer myself, after u explain once, everyone will get it. It will be automatic true-odds, if player presses their winning amount up to a true parlay. you don't even have to ask them, because they aren't giving anything up for doing so.. They must press it though when the base dealer is paying them their winning payout. If a true-odds payout is made, the dealer then just takes the "TRUE" disc off of the bet, signifying the next time that portion of bet wins it wins the regular payout. If you offered this to guests over another casino that doesn't, I think players would choose to play these. This also could get people that don't play hardways to maybe throw a buck or two.

they pay you how much per day to offer this bet to players?
I have made two hardway bets in my life and both lost.
major sucker bets.
only the extreme lucky person ever will be a lifetime winner making those bets.
in my opinions
they throw a buck or two to the dealers,Quote: allinriverking

now you want those to go to the hardway bets and what is in it for the house again?
another true odds bet?
or another sucker bet,
yep yep, yap, yap
Thank you for the experience
I bet you are actually holding back the BETTER Craps bets to offer.
That actually has a nice ring to it.Quote: RS
Hardways would be much more attractive, I think, if they did not lose on the easy way being rolled,
sounds bland and not exciting but commonQuote: RS
only losing on 7,
who would make such a horrible high house edge bet?Quote: RS
and getting paid 9:2 (or 4.5:1).
Is my math really that awful. Period.
in other words your payoff looks bad.
are you saying 6 ways to lose (7) and only 1 way to win (HARD) for one hardway
what house edge are you trying for here?
I bet $1 on the hard 8 and it wins so I get paid $5.50 and down
but should have been paid $7 and down
house edge = 1.50/7 or (3/2 * 1/7) = 3/14
