When you bet Across, you are betting all the Place bets, in the same unit amount, not including the Point. E.g. $54 Across would be: $10 on the 5, $12 on 6, $12 on the 8, $10 on the 9, and $10 on the 10. $10 + $12 + $12 + $10 + $10 = $54. After the Point has been established tell the dealer, “I would like 54 across.” and they’ll repeat “54 across.”
Betting across gets expensive. If you have $10 on the Pass Line with Max Odds ($50) then bet $52 across, and the shooter has a Point 7, you never had a chance to collect any money. You just lost $112 in two rolls of the dice.

When you bet Across at lower limits there are going to be two different options you can take: when the Point is 6 or 8 and when the Point is 4, 5, 9, or 10. Because all the numbers aren’t bet in the same amounts, the amount changes based on what the Point is.
When the Point is 6 or 8 the amount of your bet across is going to be less. This is because it costs more to bet on the 6 or 8 and the fact that it is the Point and you are not betting it, the total cost of the bet is going to be less.
Whenever you bet Across large enough that you are going to have to buy the 4 and/or 10, the cost of the bet goes up again because you need to include the commission needed to be paid on those numbers
When the Point is 6 or 8 the cost of your bet will be the smallest because you’re saving money on the fact the 6 and 8 cost more and you wont have to pay for one of them. You will also be buying the 4 and 10, which means you have to pay commission for both of those numbers and you need to add those costs in.
