    The correct answer is zero. To save time it is more efficient to toss your buy-in money on the table and leave to go to the buffet. Also, I don't know why Koko had to make a value judgement remark about hair and not answer the gentleman's request. Here's what I look like without my blue skull cap on and it ain't half bad.

    In case you are wondering how I came up with the answer 42, I used Barney's super computer without his permission while he was out surfing with his girlfriend. Barney's super computer never lies.

    I learned the two ways from a Mesa Graduate needing cab fare to get home. For that small investment I learned none of that math stuff is necessary because they have boiled it down to two bets; right and wrong.

    You apparently also hitchhiked a ride on Barney's time shifting apparatus to get the answer 7.5 million years from now.

    @William Innes
    With no time shifting capability I am unable to get the answer from Deep Thought so I'll direct you to a discussion of this topic you might find of interest.

    The number 42 has great, great significance and appears in many, many, many areas of life and history., The book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy tells of the # 42 and how it is the answer to all questions.

    Do you know the number of pips on a pair of dice ?

    42 :D

    Before I can answer your question, I wish someone can help me understand why the opposites of dice equals seven. :(

    The only bets you need to concern yourself with is what the dice are giving you.

    I thought the number 420 is the answer to all questions. Would make these threads easier to read anyway.

    Is your question how many different bets are available on a craps table or is it how many different ways are there to bet a 2, 3 or 12?

    If it is the former, it depends upon the table layout and casino rules. For instance, many craps tables no longer have the Big 6/8 bet; a few have replaced it with a High Bet (8-12) and Low Bet (2-6), but most have just extended Pass Line / Don't Pass. Some casinos do not allow put bets or hop bets. Others limit what numbers can be bought. The availability of "Bonus Bets" (e.g., Fire Bet, All Tall Small, Sharp Shooter, etc.) varies by table.

    As for the latter (rolling a 2, 3 or 12): Aces (1 & 1), Ace - Deuce (1 & 2), Midnight/Box Cars (6 & 6), World, Horn, Horn High Aces, Horn High Ace Deuce, Horn High Yo, Horn High 12 and Field. Also High Bet (8-12), Low Bet (2-6) where available. Note that I'm not counting the Don't Pass / Don't Come, which will win if a 2 or 3 is rolled on a come out. Nor am I counting the Pass Line / Come bets, which would lose on a 2, 3 or 12.
