Does anyone know what the minimum bet is on the Craps table in the Casino on the Inspiration? Also - how about the odds?

I'm new to Craps and trying to figure out how I'm going to bet on my next cruise (9/16/06).

Thanks for the info!!

lharry,
I've played craps for a long time and have often done well. There is just too much to craps to try to explain here. Let me strongly suggest you pick up a book (John Scarne wrote one years ago that I happen to like) and read up on how to bet at the craps table and the odds for each. Done correctly, craps gives a player the best odds in any casino. Then, practice at home.

Jim,
I will say this, you're fast! But, you're wrong on the 2x odds - there are bets that payout better AND give you the best odds - i.e. when you buy the boxes. And you can also do better betting "behind the line" based on the point you're trying to hit. But that's what I mean about the complexities and the nuances of the game.

No I'm not wrong. He was asking what the Free Odds were, not the best odds on the table. Carnival casinos allow a 2x odds on your pass line bet (or don't pass.

Thanks for the info. I have picked up a book - but wanted to know the minimums and the free odds before I went so I can try to play smarter.

I'm still trying to figure out exactly how the free odds work. It's a little confusing.

Jim,
Sorry, didn't mean to be critical - not having cruised Carnival (just haven't had the opportunity - that's the only reason - really, I'm not a snob) I was not aware that they did that.

Iharry.. I sent you a private message... look at the top (above your first message in this discussion) next to the "tools" and "reply" tabs you should see a private message tab now...

Just taking the talk of gambling off the public boards.
