Recreation & Problem Gambling

Recreation gambling can easily turn to problem gambling that can have serious and devastating effects both for the gambler and the gambler's family. Although no substance is ingested, the problem gambler gets the same effect from gambling as someone else might get from taking a tranquilizer or having a drink. The gambling alters the person's mood and the gambler keeps repeating the behavior attempting to achieve that same effect. But just as tolerance develops to drugs or alcohol, the gambler finds that it takes more and more of the gambling experience to achieve the same emotional effect as before. This creates an increased craving for the activity and the gambler finds they have less and less ability to resist as the craving grows in intensity and frequency. Please gamble responsibly, and if you feel you have a problem - get help...

Here are some of the warning signs:
-Gambling to escape worry or trouble.
-Gambling to get money to solve financial difficulties.
-Being unable to stop playing regardless of winning or losing.
-Gambling until the last dollar is gone.
-Losing time from work due to gambling.
-Borrowing money to pay gambling debts.
-Neglecting family because of gambling.
-Lying about time and money spent gambling.

Craps Strategy

Casinos almost always have their odds published on the table. An odds bet is a supplement to the original pass line bet and it can range anywhere from 1 to 100 times your original bet, depending on the house odds. A pass line bet with odds cannot be made on the "come out roll", as it can only be made after the point is set. For example, if you were betting $5 on a pass line bet and the point got set to 4, you could place an equivalent or larger bet just below your original wager. Place the chips half-on and half-off the bottom of the pass line. If on the next roll a 4 is hit you win your pass line bet back, and an additional sum of money derived from the odds bet. In this case, the payoff is 2 to1 on the odds bet. The actual number the point is set to determines the payout on odds bets. If the point is set to 4 or 10, odds bets are paid back at 2 to 1 odds. If the point is set to 5 or 9, odds bets are paid back at 3 to 2 odds. If the point is set to 6 or 8, odds bets are paid back at 6 to 5 odds.

The odds bet is usually explained as being an intelligent bet in the game of craps. This is because the more you wager (double, triple, quadruple odds bet) the lower the house edge drops. A standard pass line bet holds a house edge of 1.41% - respectable, and compared to many other casino games you have to choose from its downright excellent, but take into account the potential for odds betting and it's a whole different story. The house edge on a pass line bet with ten times odds is an incredible 0.18%.

For quick reference here is a chart showing the advantage derived from each stage of odds bets.
