# Dealers Respond to Prop Bets

Prop bets in craps

I would like to share with you some keys that I use and will put them up against anyone else’s. On the high-low, everyone thinks of a 5/9 place bet, add the zero then subtract half the bet. That’s fine if they bet \$5 increments. A guy parlays a \$4 yo. Then he moves it to high-low. Next roll…what else? 12 craps and that key isn’t worth shit on \$64. Once a dealer understands how incredibly easy the yo is to pay he utilizes that on the high-low. So you have a figure of \$960 then subtracting \$32 which is the only half way hard part you got \$928. Here’s another. 3 way 7 bets use to screw me up a bit. 4 X the bet plus a third. Let’s say some jack off bets \$138 which breaks down to \$46 per bet. Most stick men will crumble even with that key. Check this out. You add a zero to the \$46 which looks like \$460 and add the \$138 to that. \$598 total. It’s that easy. Any one who has dealt craps knows \$75 would pay \$325. But with this key you could call a 21 dealer over and they look at the green checks and see \$250 plus the \$75 = \$325. This key would naturally work on the low side of 3 way craps or 3 way 6 & 8 hopping.

Here is a key I like to use for the Horn High 2 or 12. If the high side hits I find it easier and quicker to take 10x’s the bet plus whatever the bet would pay on the 5 or 9. e.g. \$25 x 10 = 250 + 35 = \$285. \$45 x 10 = 450 + 63 = \$513. On the Three way craps when the high side hits I take 10x’s the bet minus two-thirds. e.g. \$12 x 10 = 120 – 8 = \$112. And if the ace-deuce rolls I take 5x’s the bet minus two-thirds. e.g. \$18 x 5 = 90 – 12 = \$78. I also explain to the dealers that you do not need to know percentages, you only need to know chip association. Example is that 20% of \$5 is \$1. So 20% of one red chip is one white chip. 20% of one green chip is one red chip. So to get 40% of a bet in increments of \$5 you just double the amount of red chips or green chips respectively. Just thought I would give a few of the keys that I use while on the game. Thanks for the site the dealers love it.

HORN HIGH PAYOFFS

The only obstacle to overcome is to determine how much money is bet on any particular number.SIMPLY DIVIDE THE BET BY FIVE. Below are some examples.

Example:

\$25 horn high ‘yo

12 rolls..
25 divided by 5 = 5
31 x 5 = 155 minus the \$25 bet equals \$130

\$15 horn high ‘yo

Ace deuce rolls..
15 divided by 5 = 3
16 x 3 = 48 minus the \$15 bet equals \$33

\$15 horn high ‘yo

Eleven rolls..
15 divided by 5 = 3
But we have to double what’s on the 11 right?
16 x 6 = 96 minus the \$15 bet equals \$81

\$25 horn high 12

Aces roll…
25 divided by 5 = 5
31 x 5 = 155 minus the \$25 bet equals \$130

\$25 horn high Aces

Aces roll…
25 divided by 5 = 5
But we have to double what’s on the Aces right?
31 x 10 = 310 minus the \$25 bet equals \$285

Now here is a little trick, don’t tell anyone…ok?

Let’s figure some 31 x bets, shall we?

\$1 bet =
1 x 3 = 3 now add a zero. 30 right?

\$ 31

Lets do another, 3 x 31

3 x 3 = 9, add a zero (90)
how much is on the bet? 3 right?
90 + 3 = 93

\$12 bet x 31

12 x 3 = 36, now add a zero (360)
360 + 12 = 372

\$15 bet x 31

15 x 3 = 45, now add a zero (450)
450 + 15 = 465

\$60 horn high Aces

Twelve rolls
60 divided by 5 = 12
31 x 12 = 372
minus the \$60 bet equals \$312

\$60 horn high Twelve

Twelve rolls
60 divided by 5 = 12
But we have to double what’s on the Twelve right? (12×2=24)

31 x 24

24 x 3 = 72, now add zero (720)
now add the \$24 that’s on the twelve
720 + 24 = 744
minus the \$60 bet equals \$684
