New craps Fire Bet emerging in Las Vegas

Perry Staci, a Las Vegas casino supervisor, has invented a new proposition bet forcraps players that is already being promoted at Harrah’s, the Sahara, and the Rio.Rumor has it that it will also soon be on the layout at The Cannery on the Northside of Vegas.

The bet is that the shooter will be able to make 4, 5 or 6 individual pointsafter a point is established. There are two different paytables, paying either 25,250, and 1,000 for one, respectively, or 10, 200, and 2,000 for one. The bettinglimits are $1 minimum and $5 maximum, so a $5 bet could win either $5,000 or $10,000depending on the paytable.

Passes or Craps rolls on the Come Out Roll do not count, nor does making the samepoint more than once. Special pucks and a customized table layout are all part ofPerry’s new addition to the Proposition Box.

While having a shot at winning $10,000 on a craps table for a $5 bet is exciting,this bet is easily the worst one on the layout, with a house edge of 21 to 25%,depending on the paytable.
