I like to play craps, but live in Arizona where only craps machines are available. I am also a "minimum" better, but have had a lot of success using the Martingale Field \$1 base bet.

However, the maximum bet on the craps machine is \$35. Starting with an initial bet of \$1, the sixth bet in the Martingale series hits close to the maximum, at \$32. My question is: "What is the probability of six consecutive non-field numbers appearing?"

20/36 x 20/36 x 20/36 x 20/36 x 20/36 x 20/36 = 2.94%

you can't lose!!!!!

I prefer a grand Martingale for the first two steps:
1 - Initial Bet
3 - Grand Martingale
7 - Grand Martingale
Then regular martingale for the remainder

Problem is, that the bubble craps all over town cap the max bet to 35 or some other ridiculous low amount.

I don't think that is a fact, I have seen higher limits on the bubble.

I've personally seen \$400 field bet wagers on the bubble at red rock. It might go higher. No bet at Red Rock is capped at \$35 as far as I know. I've seen hundreds wagered on place bets.

I've been all over...maybe some run down joint has low minimums I'm unaware of, but I've never seen bubble wagers capped at \$35.

What casino has bubble craps and caps the field bet at \$35 or any bet at \$35?

The Organic craps machines that I have played allow up to \$1000.00 max bet. The only down fall is the one I was playing, your station locks up and its a hand pay on combined payout of your initial wager and the win if it was over \$600.00. A pain in the you know where if you're playing a don't progression. No 1099, just a hand pay.

That was almost a year ago in Harrah's Council Bluffs. Don't know if they've changed it by now or not.

The organic craps machines are gone. I have yet to hear of any casino that has one and I still have no idea why there got pulled from this casino market area.

The 'shoot to win' Craps machines I have seen a max bet up to 2000 but that is on the ODDS only and all the machines I have seen are 2X odds. They cap the Buy/Place/Lay/Place to lose bets very low: \$14 to 35!!!
