When you start to Press multiple numbers you have a pretty good idea of what you’re doing. You’re tracking your bets, knowing what they pay, how much you’re going to add to each number, what those numbers are going to end up at, and whether or not you need to add more money to make it proper. Instead of putting all your chips on one bet, you’re spreading them out so multiple bets get increased every time.
Double Unit Presses are fairly common. It’s when you take the payment of a Place bet and increase two Place bets that are equal to each other at the same time. It’s almost always the bet itself and its opposite Point. When making Double Unit Presses you use the phrase “Go to (amount you want each bet to go to) each (the two Place bets you would like to increase)”. For example, if you have $12 each 6 and 8. One of them hits and you want to Press them both to $18 each. When it’s your turn to get paid but before the dealer pays you, you would say “Go to $18 each 6 and 8”. The dealer should then repeat “Going to $18 each 6 and 8”.
You can Press more than one or two numbers at once. If you’re going to Press more than two numbers at the same time it’s likely you’re going to do it in Spread bet fashion. You should first know how much you’re going to get paid and how much it’s going to cost in order to make your Presses. That will tell you if you need to give the dealer more money in order to complete the cost or how much change you should be getting. Right before you’re going to get paid for your Place bet, tell the dealer how much you want to Press and which ones you want- Inside, Outside, or Across.
Across – $27 Across Pressure – You already had $54 Across and the 10 hits for an $18 payment. You drop another $9 to make a total of $27 and tell the dealer “I want to press $27 across”. You’ve now gone up one Unit across all your bets.
Inside – $170 Inside Pressure – You already have $170 Inside. When the 5 hits for a payment of $70 you drop $100 for a total of $170 and tell the dealer “I want $170 inside pressure”. You’ve now doubled everything you have on the Inside.
Outside – $102 Outside Pressure – You have $102 Outside. When 4 hits for a payment of $50 you drop another $53 and tell the dealer “I want $103 outside pressure”. You’re now sitting on $50 on each the 4, 5, 9, and 10. It’s $103 because you have to pay $1 vig for your winning bet and another $2 for $25 each pressure on the 4 and 10.
