Odds Are OFF During the Comeout Roll

During the Comeout Roll the Odds on all Come Bets do not work, although the Come bet itself is always working. If a seven is rolled during the Comeout Roll you will lose all your Come Bets and all the Odds on those Come Bets will be returned to you. If the next Point that is rolled is one that you have a Come bet on then the Come Bet itself will get paid even money and its Odds will just be given back.

You can turn your Odds ON during the Comeout Roll and if the seven rolled you would lose both the Come Bet and its Odds. If that Point rolled during the Comeout Roll then you would get paid for both the Come Bet and its' Odds.
