Is there a way to post a poll and not let anyone vote on the poll, but let them put their number choice of vote in a response to poll? This would stop people from voting negatively, just because they want too.. and I have seen the way some of the people harp on each other here... The idea of the threads is to open dialogue... Just simply voting and not adding to the discussion, doesn't leave much room for dialogue..



The house only gives the true odds for the next win on that hardway. It's more of we'll reward you by giving you true odds on your hardway bet if you leave that bet up, we'll even let you increase that bet up to a true parlay amount and give you true odds on that amount also..



Yes, I understood that, thanks. I don't think you understood what I said, but it's not important.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

polls around here tend to accurately give a good indication of reality. Take a look at lem66 poll.

Just leave the don't likes off the poll, so you will get the result you want !



I put them on there to get what people think, but lets talk about why you think that, maybe somebody just might not understand an idea properly, or there may be advantages not immediately seen by someone, maybe some light may need to be shed on some ideas... there are a lot of variables that can give someone a bad feel for something they may not fully get..

Mostly without just cause... Just like an idea that's going to put more money in a player's pocket, for doing nothing differently than if they already bet the hardways.. Makes no sense to me...

The only thing that confuses me about the poll, is the 4 votes for "I play hardways, but I won't play these". If you don't play hardways, I understand not playing these if you don't want too. But saying you play hardways, and that you rather be paid less when they win, is strange to me..

At least I got 2 people that don't bet hardways to want to play these, that's what I set out to do when I created them. According to the poll, I got 25% of people that don't bet hardways to want to bet them, close to the 40% real life poll of people that don't bet hardways that would bet them now, with my bets..

You're the OP, you wrote choices for your poll, and people's opinions you wrote but apparently didn't like are now "haters"? Seems pretty trollish to me. I don't think the respondents are the people confused in this thread. And, yes, "haters" is pretty derogatory. Not quite bannable offense.



I would like to correct myself, any written response was great good response or bad, what i was referring to, was people voting negatively without explanation I guess.. So yes I'm the confused one, because I have poll info without reasons to go with some of the votes.. It's like going in to see Dan at Galaxy, and he says terrible idea and slams door in your face, no reason as to why he thought it was terrible... I guess leaves you scratching your head..

Craps is an old game that often attracts old men who don't like change. At least the ones who actually bet the hard ways.

Well, doubt Dan would ever do that. But would your game ever suck if he did LOL

Seriously, If people don't like a bet, well, they don't like it. They are nice enough to give your their opinion without compensation.

Lots of people have been helped with their game or wisely abandoned it. Or refined it after actually accepting constructive criticism.

If you want to know why, then poll questions should be I don't like it because ... Too long to resolve... Hate hardways....too confusing .. ** *** ** **** HAT

So you are saying, because they have been playing a long time, they don't want a bigger payout for something they have been doing all these years?

What if an old timer always played the field, but now the house pays 3 to 1 on the 2 and 12. Would they not like the field bet now because it pays more now?
