The craps “Put bet,” is it a Good or Bad bet? It depends. The reason I’m bringing this up is because one of the Las Vegas local casinos in the Boyd group will not allow a player to make a bet on the Pass line after the point is established, and at one time they allowed it. Now the casino handles it as a place bet, angled at the edge of the Pass line. Sound confusing, hell yea. When have you ever heard of a casino saving players from themselves. This particular casino now treats a bet made on the Pass line after the point is established as a “Put bet;” which is no longer acceptable. YES, Put bets are not accepted in all casino’s. In this particular casino it has 10 x times odds, and this is where the Put bet reduces the house edge when maximum odds are taken. Normally Put bets are not a good deal for players, but when the free odds bet exceeds 5 x times … the house edge makes the Put bet a better bet. Aside from the odds requirements … a bigger bankroll is almost a must to wither the swings. Put bets were more popular when some casinos were allowing 100 x odds. Now days the 3-4-5 odds or double odds doesn’t cut it. In today’s environment it is not a good bet . So I was surprised that this local Las Vegas casino recently decided that this type of line bet was not acceptable. In retrospect I think this policy has been GOOD for some of its players. More money is made with placing the come out number, because very few players are willing to take the maximum 10 x times odds with the late line bet. This policy change keeps the novice player, the clueless, and the impatient player who wants to join the action right away from making a BAD decision. But I doubt if it will catch on with the other casinos.
