    Bubbles and video craps excluded, regular tables only, $6.75 on the 2 and 12, $3.00 on the 3/11 if the bet stays up. or $7.50/$3.75 and down.

    I talked to a pit boss who dealt quarter craps and he said you had to bet a dollar on the horn at least at the casino he was at. Then he started rambling about people betting $1.25 across and only getting even money when they got paid. lol.

    I like the past ten hands menu on the Interblock, but how can you have a hand that starts and ends with a seven? Hand number 8.

    I believe the code writer has never played craps. If there's a string of world numbers in a row on the comeout they'll show like that until a box number is rolled.

    Thanks. So the menu showing past hands is just more fake news. How appropriate.

    Pretty typical bubble hands. :confused: The guy rolled a point of "seven", and then immediately 7'd-out, This is the latest thing in craps, "point of seven craps". The average bubble craps player, doesn't pick-up on it. :) This increases the H/E to about 35% but who gives a shit about the math. :cool: I'm sure TD will attribute this anomaly, to "variance" :D

    Not me. The math sucks. It’s for losers. I learned that without a trip to Mesa.

    I have also seen this on the history bar at the bottom of the screen. It also represents repeating naturals (do-7/11, don't-2/3/12) on come-out rolls, technically multiple passes (hands) but perhaps the developer decided to save screen space.

    What’s the longest hand you’ve seen on the Interblock?

    So far, 14 rolls is the longest I’ve seen.

    Mostly very choppy results, like random dice.

    I have seen mid twenties most times I play, at least once a week, 3 separate sessions. Last Sunday was an exception, I don't think there were any rolls over 14 over 5 hours of play. However, I was playing the Iron Cross and many of the rolls were 2, 3 or 12, causing me to modify my betting strategy.

    The IB I play pays Double on 2 and Triple on 12 on the Field bet. If a 2 was rolled I pressed the 5, if a 12 was rolled I pressed 6 and 8. Kind of paying it forward if you will. It kept me in the game. I am up $126 since switching to the Iron Cross.

    Longest I have seen with no sevens was in the 60's. Unfortunately I was late to the party, around 40 rolls in and all the seats were full:(

    I've seen many rolls in the 20's and 30's but the majority of them had CO sevens in them.

    Same for me last weekend, no rolls longer than the teens. The Lucky Shooter bet saved me, hit 100 to one on that Sunday. I only bet it when the horn numbers get way out of whack on the high side, hoping for a horn number drought since they take down the bet.

    Dang, you're pretty fast to get to that screen and take a picture of it before the timer takes it down:)

    My machine is a $1 minimum bet. I usually bet $2 on 5/6/8 and $1 on the Field. I will be playing in Phoenix next week and the IB machines are $2 min on Field; however Place bets are $1. If I get in the hole early, I will probably go with $1 5/6/8 and use my enhanced Field strategy to Press the 5/6/8, hopefully keeping me in until that long roll happens.

    The easiest way would bet the way TDVegas suggests
    "PAST POSTING" , It could be a winner everytime
    second best to that would be , , "BET WHAT THE DICE ARE GIVING YOU" , "Getting on the front end of a trend and bet it to the end
    rates pretty high with me
    short of any of these strategies it could all become , GUESS WORK

    I hit a spell where I was about $30 down. I always bet Naturals on the Come-out (Lay $1 across, and $1 E/C or Horn). Hit 4 7s in row, pressing Big Red on the 2/3/4 rolls. Let $4 ride on the 5th roll when the point was established, losing $5 on that roll (Big Red and $1 Lay bet) netting about $25 for 5 Come-out rolls. Got me back to even for that session.

    I have an iron cross curse. Every time I get it loaded up, up pops the seven. So, I gave it up.

    Shit happens. My betting naturals method also becomes my short roll strategy. In essence, I ride the dark side by leaving my Lay bets up and making Come bets for at least 2 rolls. The Come bet and the Lay Bets win if a 7 is rolled right away. I am willing to sacrifice 2 Lay bets before I take the remaining bets down and complete the Iron Cross.

    Choppy works, but that's not what you'd get. :cool:

    Thanks for being so crystal clear, as usual.
