I would make sure that you make it clear what bet you are on and that the dealer is aware of your switching back and forth.


Ok, I was just curious as to what you guys would do in those situations. I'm a player who likes switching back and forth. This is because it makes no sense and is no fun sticking to one side (especially when I feel a 7 out is imminent). At the same time I don't want to anger the dealer, but I want to bet comfortably by switching back and forth even though it could be confusing. So what should I do?

Edit- I do not see people switching back and forth much. I'm just wondering how many of you do it as well?

I *always* count my money before getting chips and while coloring out. This is the time for mistakes to be made, and there's no recovering from them.

focd, ahve you considered trying Rapid Craps? The machine won't be confused, you don't have to worry about chips at all, and you only color up when you leave. As of now there's just the one table at Bill's. It offer 3x,4x,5x odds, I think double on 2 and 12 on the field and no fire bet. Otherwise it seems like any other craps table I've seen.

I've noticed it is quite normal to sit out when a new shooter takes the dice, evidently in the effort to prequalify him. Once he makes a point, then the money will start to come out.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

If they sometimes make a mistake by putting green chips in stacks of 5, then I will be shortchanged by a huge amount! Sometimes I really don't want to color up my chips there and want to count it alone on the side.


If you've got fewer than 20 or so green, how about stuffing them in a pants or jacket pocket or a pocketbook/fanny pack and counting them stepping away. If you've got more than that you presumably already have black. With a bettor with black chips, the dealers and boxes seem to be a bit extra careful, maybe in the hope of a final toke.

On the switching of bets. I'll just saying dealers are human, humans make mistakes. The more randomness you put into the game the more mistakes happen. Just be aware of how much you should be getting back and be ready to watch for any mistakes. I would also make sure that your bet is very clearly in one of the spaces. Something sitting on a line could be bad if the dealer has no idea what you are betting.

As for too many chips. Only once have I come close to filling up the 2 racks in front of me. Before that happens, the dealer should generally be trading up chips for you as well. In my case this was a $10 table, come bets with full odds paying $70. They would give me a black chip and I'd drop $30 to them. A similar thing happens a lot more often with something like a $10 bet on the 4 or 10. This pays $14, if you have a bunch of white chips they will ask you to drop $1 and give you 3 red chips. If you are truly running out of space, I would simply ask the dealer if you would be able to caller up some of the chips. I wouldn't do this unless you were close to filling up the 2 rails though.


Where/When to grab chips.

General rule of thumb is if the chips are in 1 stack, you can pick them up. If they are spread out, they are spread outbecause the camera needs to see them. Once that happens the dealers will gather those up and place them in 1 stack in front of you.

I would also wait to pick up chips until all similar bets have been paid. An example would be a field bet. If there are 3 bets out there, just wait until all 3 are paid before picking your own up. I've had some casinos want me to wait, most don't care, that is just what I do now.

When a chip is knocked off by a flying dice, can you touch it to move it back to the proper position or do you have to tell the dealer to do it?

If it's a pass line bet or odds, yeah, you can fix it. Just wait for the stickman to bring in the dice, and be obvious about fixing them.

Then again, it may be better to let the dealer handle it if it's a winning bet.

If it's something like a field bet being moved, point it out to the dealer.
