Thread: 6-7-8 Bet at craps?

  1. #1
    I saw a photo of a craps layout at a casino in Colorado and the table appeared to have a one roll self-service bet on 6-7-8.

    Any info on this? Nothing showed up on a Google search. I didn't see the name of the casino.

    Definitely something Mr. Alan would ask.

    Damn!!!! I thought Mr Mcap was going to say I posted in the wrong forum.

    It's worse than the field, 16 ways to win, 20 ways to lose. (Field pays double on the 2 and 12, making it essentially 18-20.)

    Alan, I'm really confused as to your need to use a sock. You're the original founder of this forum. You weren't banned... IIRC you left on your own volition. If you want to leave all the squabbles with other posters behind, I would just say so and move on instead of pretending to be somebody else.

    I also don't understand. There's nothing wrong with wanting to post again. But why use "Mr." when referring to others when everyone knows who Andrew is? Too much effort in a world where we try to make things easier. It's like going to a costume & mask party while wearing your nametag.

    Are you sure Hard 6&8 don't pay 2-1? Those were the rules 10-5 years ago when I played it in AC

    Thank you for the math. Is this an actual one roll self service bet? In the photo it was in Orange similar to a field bet. And the marking appeared to be "6-7-8" but there was also some text under that which was blurry in the photo.

    From the Colorado statutes:

    “6-7-8” is a one roll wager, offered at the election of a retail licensee, that may be made at any
    time which shall win if any one of the totals six, seven or eight is thrown on the roll immediately
    following the placement of such bet and shall lose if the total of two, three, four, five, nine, ten,
    eleven or twelve is thrown on such roll."

    Thank you Mr Regnis. Is the payout specified in the law or is it set by each casino?

    Minimum payoff of even money by statute. They can elect to pay more.

    I don’t know who AndrewG is, but I totally get it, if he should, in fact, be Alan. He wants to post and express his views without being attacked. I mean once someone builds up a history on a forum (any forum), people no longer listen to what that person says. They just attack him or support him, depending on how they view him.

    When I was at blackjack the forum, I was endlessly attacked for tipping and for defending casinos from all the stupid things APs say about them. After a while, everyone stopped paying attention to the content of my posts. They just attacked me no mater what I said. I could have said “the sky is blue”, and I’d have had 10 posters calling me vulgar names, calling me a troll and telling me they were putting me on ignore (as if that impacted my life, lol).

    It was the same way at Blackjack Apprerenship. I was actually banned at BJA because I wouldn’t show the math behind my tipping. And I’m not making that up.

    So when I started posting here, I made a new handle because I wanted to ask a blackjack question, and I figured if I posted as dbs6582, I’d get attacked without anybody paying attention to my question and answering it.

    So if you ask why Alan might want to post under another handle (if, in fact, AndewG is Alan), it makes total sense to me. He just wants to express his views without being attacked. And every post AndewG has made has been a quality post without any intent to troll. So why does anybody care?

    Not a lot of sense there. The people who "attacked" him before still do it. The only extra is the occasional well-placed mock here and there because who he is is so obvious.

    I just wanna know who his next wife is.

    Yeah, I don’t know the history behind Alan, since I joined as he was leaving. But this AndrewG guy seems like he just wants to express his views without getting attacked. Maybe I have him pegged wrong. I have been wrong before, but not often. Lol

    No, you've got him pegged right.

    So doesn't everyone else.

    The most important thing about kewlJ and Alan is Hitlers Recipe for Mendlebread.
    I'll never forget that and it is still the funniest thing I have heard from kewlJ.

    And we know kew is a monstrous fan of Harvey Milk's cumquat pudding.

    If I remember correctly, Alan was not warm to questioning from individuals driving a 1959 Peugeot.

    If "One" is married at a craps table and subsequently asks about a 6/7/8 table bet the numbers would make Monet and LMR blush.

    6 times 8 minus 7 with the addition of the magical "One" equals 42.

    Say, aren't celebrity marriages, threesomes?

    (6 + 7 + 8) + (1 + 1 + 1) = 24 ---> 42;

    (6 * 7 * 8) - (1 + 1 + 1) = 333 ---> 42.

    Look, number 153 "on" number 173 is dimension-42. Going by the sums of squares as written out at, https://vegascasinotalk.com/forum/sh...189#post102189 , it can be shown that number 293 "on" number 333 occurs diametrically opposite to number 153 "on" number 173, at dimension-42.
    Lustin' lutins, (from) NUTS:LI, unlist insult until's sunlit!
