    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?"

    Thanks in advance.........

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

    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

    24
    48

    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.

    Here in Vegas...
    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!!!

    This is off topic but, do you know if the place just East of Sams Town on the Boulder Hwy routinely uses a board on their craps table during the weekday early morning hours? Was there a few months ago on a Monday morning and they had a board until 10am. Planning on going back the week between Christmas and New Years.
