New York crapsHi
I'm looking for information about "New York" craps, how it's played and operated.
I'm also looking for a picture of the layout.
Anyone out there who has information?
Right now it seems as that game is a big secret and no real valuable information can be found.
asking a question by blogging usually doesnt work well, not too many see the blog posts, plus there is the irritation that it is not what blogging is for 'so why reply'
as for your question, I'd like to think that there is little information because the game is not being played except maybe somewhere weird. If you have reason to believe otherwise, or whatever, I'd like to hear it, but not here.
to continue with this, I suggest going to Forums, scroll down to Gambling, get the drop down list opened up, find Craps, search for your topic and post there if possible [normally]. In your case the topic is new I believe, so skip that and click on 'start new thread' and proceed
New York Craps differs from customary bank Craps in its lack of Place bets. All of the box numbers may instead be bought for a five percent commission payable in advance. Winners are paid at the true odds. It is an archaic style of Craps that has been almost entirely displaced in licensed casinos.
No knowledgeable player would ever buy the Box Eight, for example, when he could instead place it. He may however often buy the outside Box numbers if his wager is substantial.
For competitive reasons, the modern trend is to charge the five percent commission in arrears, only after the bet has won.
New York Craps involves different rules rather than a different layout. If you wish to play that style and buy all of the Box numbers in advance in a modern casino then the Box person will be pleased to accommodate you.
