Haven't You Ever Heard of the Pass Line?

 At least a couple of times each casino day, fellow players asks me: "Why do you put so much emphasis on Place betting the 6 & 8 over everything else on the table?"

Yes, they already know that the 6 & 8 will roll an average of five times each, while the 7 will only roll six times out of thirty-six possible dice combinations.

But they also know that the Pass Line with full double odds has a low house edge, and with 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x, 20x, and even a few 100x-odds casinos available, the house edge is ultra-low.  

So why is the Mad Professor standing there Placing the 6 & 8 on all these random-shooters, and, "Haven't you ever heard of the Pass Line?" …and "Why don't you just take your chances like the rest of us?"

Behind the answer is a few simple concepts that form a very conservative, yet profitable approach:

Use the Captain's 5-Count before betting on a Random-Roller.  Only one-third or 33% of random-rollers will get beyond five rolls before sevening out.

Place the 6 & 8 for a set amount, say $30 each, and then regress each bet to $12 after one hit.

Lock up a small profit, then Press on every alternating hit by one unit of $6 on the two numbers.

Use a portion of the newly won money to go for bigger payoffs, while ever-increasing the locked-in profit level.

        

Progressing your bet after first regressing them to lock-up a profit can pay steady returns, while still leaving SOME of the intermediate profits in play on the table.

 Using such a strategy depends on your own personal goals.

I play craps for  P R O F I T    !

 It takes countless and costly hours to gain reliable insight into this game and various methods of play, but computer models quickly yield information for all sorts of situations.  This is then proven out in actual play. 

 That's right, after taking a serious look at various new approaches…the Mad Professor actually tests all of his methods right at the tables with real money. 

I don't write books, or sell systems, or charge for lessons.  My only source of income is CRAPS.  I play with my own money to support a lifestyle that some might suggest is rather extravagant.  One friend calls my lifestyle "an exercise in immense and outlandish consumption."   I'll only admit to liking nice things. 

One thing that I will admit and it is crystal-clear, and that is:
If you are going to take chances on random-rollers, then make it a GOOD chance!

How often can you expect a number to hit with a random-roller shooting the dice?
 The accompanying chart shows the chances of none, one, or more hits on each number.

 If you place bet the 6 & 8, your chances of not hitting before a 7 is halved, while your chances of hitting your bet once or more are doubled. 

Factor in a LUCKY roll once in a while, and you have a very good profit potential.

Good Luck & Good Skill at the Tables…and in Life.
