Place Bet Basics

The Intermediate Roll is when you can bet the six different Place Bets: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10. A Place Bet wins if it rolls before the 7 and loses if the 7 rolls first. You're allowed to add and remove from the bet as much money as you want at any time.

You can ask to have your Place bets turned ON during the Comeout Roll

How to Bet Place Bets

After the Point is established it’s time to make Place bets. They are first come- first serve so have your money ready and put your money in the COME. If you don’t put your money in the COME there is a chance it will be assumed to be a different bet or no bet at all.

Where Not to Put Your Money

You shouldn't place your bets next to or behind a dealers working stacks, in The Field, in the Place bet boxes or the Don't Come. You should place all your bets in the COME and if you cant reach try splitting the Pass and the Don't Pass. A dealer will spot that in a heartbeat and ask what it is.

Not Behind Money

Placement of Place Bets

Every player has a spot for their Place bets so the every dealer knows which bets belong to whom. Each number has four spots in front and four spots behind it to represent possible eight players. Your placement is based on where your money is in the rail.

What does a Place Bet Pay

Like a lot of other bets on the table, you must bet Place bets in certain increments and they pay differently depending on which number you’re betting.

Pays 7:6

Every $6 you bet wins $7 on the 6 or 8 so you must bet in increments of $6 such as $12, $18, $30...

Proper terms for Betting Place Bets

There are many ways to bet Place bets. These are the proper terms to use that will make the game move along at a much smoother pace and reduce confusion for everyone.

  • "Place" - When you bet a Place bet you tell the base dealer to “place” that number. For example, if you want to bet $10 on the 5, you drop $10 on the table and say “I would like to ‘place’ the 5 for ten dollars." The dealer should repeat “Ten dollar 5."
  • “Each” – The term “each” is used when you are betting the same amount on two numbers. Only use it when you’re betting two Place bets that could be the same amount. 6 and 8 are bet in $6 increments. If you wanted $6 on both the 6 and 8 you would say “Six each 6 and 8." The 4, 5, 9, and 10 are all bet in $5 increments. If you wanted $10 on both the 4 and 10, you would tell the dealer “Ten each 4 and 10.”
  • “Buy” – When you use the term “buy”, you are betting a Place bet that is being paid True Odds. A commission is involved and is usually paid when you make the bet although some casinos will charge the commission only after the bet has won.
  • “Across”, “Inside”, “Outside" – These terms are used when you’re betting three or more numbers at the same time. When using these terms, you do not include the point. These are known as Spread Bets.
  • “... Including the Point” – This is used when you are betting a Place bet that is also the Point. People who use this usually won’t be betting the Pass Line, which is why they are Including the Point as part of their Place bets. These are also Spread Bets.

Betting a Place Bet for the Dealers

Dealer Place Bets encouraged! The dealer will put that bet in the middle of the number representing that it is a bet for the dealer. The amount that gets paid differs from point to point and from casino to casino but this is how I generally understand it.

6's and 8's

The 6 and 8 get paid even money until you get to $6 then it gets paid $7. If you see the dealers getting paid more than even money on dealer bets that are less than $5 then I strongly urge you to make those bets for the dealers as it would actually be giving them an advantage over the casino!
