Craps Hardway Bet VS Hopping Hardway

Dear Mark,
In craps, is there a difference between a hopping hardway and a regular
hardway? Is either worth playing? Clint F.

With a hardway, Clint, you are betting that a matching pair of dice
will appear before a 7, or before two dice of the same total value are rolled. When the face of the dice are rolled as 2 and 2, it is
considered a hard 4; the 3 and 3 is a hard 6; the 4 and 4 is a hard 8; and the 5 and 5 is a hard 10. Using a hard 8 as an example, you lose if a seven is rolled, or an eight the "easy" way (6 and 2, 5 and 3, or a 7 and 1).

With a hopping hardway, you are betting that a certain matching pair
will appear on the next roll. This one-roller pays 30-to-1, compared to
a payoff of 9-to-1 for the run-of-the-mill hard 6 or 8, or 7 to 1 for
the hard 4 and 10.

Although all proposition bets like a hardway have high payoffs, the
casino advantage on them is between 9-11%; far too high to chance them
with your hard-earned money. The only thing hardways are good for is
the house. Besides, Clint, they don't call 'em hardways for nothing.
