Craps The Pass Line Player

Dear Mark: On weekends, the casino where I play raises the table minimum to $25 on the crap table. What's a player to do to get some crap action on the weekend when you're only a $5 player, wanting to make only smart wagers like a Pass line bet? Neil F.

There is a way, Neil, for us nickel players to fix things when the casino bumps up the table minimum on the weekends.
Here's what I'm asking you to do. Bet the Pass line and Don't pass at the same time. Huh? Yep, Ben, being a nickel Pass line player, I want you to place $30 in lieu of $5 on the Pass line, and then bet $25 on the Don't pass simultaneously. Your net bet becomes only $5.

Do the reverse if you are a Don't player. Bet six red chips on the Don't pass and five red chips on the Pass. So once more, though you're betting $55, all you are risking is a grand total of $5.
You didn't think it was going to be that easy, did you Neil? You still have one itsy bitsy problem, and that's the twelve wielding its ugly face, on average, once every 36 rolls, making you lose on the Pass line, and push on the Don't.
Consequently, you could bet a buck as insurance every roll of the dice and get 30 to 1 if and when it appears, or, take a chance, yes gamble, that it doesn't roll during your gambling timeline. Either way, Neil, at least you're in action when the table limits are higher than your budget allows.
