Take your proposition bets down

Don’t allow the house to keep them up

When you win a proposition bet, the dealer pays your winnings but leaves your originalbet “up”, so it’s in play again for the next roll. By doing so they’re making youbet automatically, which is good for the casino, because the more people bet, themore they’ll lose.

As you know from our betting guide and article on the worst craps bets, you shouldn’t be making prop bets anyway. You shouldbe making flat bets (Pass, Come, Don’t Pass, or Don’t Come), along with the appropriateFree Odds bet. But if you do make a prop bet and you’relucky enough to win, ask the dealer to take it down . You won your bet, sodon’t push your luck any further.
