    He does exist.

    I was just looking at the voting on here again........almost 40% of the posters that voted think you can make a living playing craps.

    Makes ya wonder why they are on here voting and not at "work". :)

    $30 grand a month?...huh, hmmm yeah I'd read that book....Wait, is this guy a high class prostitute or a craps player? or both!!!!!?

    So that's $30 thousand a month(on average).....So is this guy getting kicked out casinos yet? I would think a $360,000 yearly income from craps MIGHT just attract a casinos' attention.

    No, he's making $30,000 a month....only problem is that it's costing him $40,000 to make it.

    Ah yes, "we're losing money on every sale, but making it up in volume."

    I see this principle in action at the roulette table frequently.

    It is possible...if you can use a system short term and make $100/day...problem is folks don't just stop at $100, they want more money, so they end up blowing it not using a betting system

    Now if you are ALWAYS up, then sure, it's easy to walk away UP...HOWEVER, what percentage of players would say after an hour of play they are DOWN, and not 3 or 4 buck, but a hundred or couple hundred etc.?

    And just what is a "system short term" that can be used to make $100/day?

    Beyond that...if the system can make $100/day
    It can make $1,000/day

    If it works for $100...it works for $1,000.
    Simply change the chip color.

    I like the martingale...personally, it has worked well for me on the short term. I martingale on a $5 bubble craps machine on either the pass or don't pass line up to being ahead $100, then I quit.

    I'm not about that highroller life yet, ha. I trust my system, but not that much to change the chip color....yet. As with every system, Martingale fails, and you have a higher chance of failing the more you play, so I try to keep my sessions short

    Nothing wrong with playing your strategy.....but short sessions are just part of a continuing flow. Unless you quit forever, it's just one long session.....then you die. :)

    Thanks for stopping by. Hope all is well. Say hi to some of the others who used to post here. The door is always open on this forum, but nobody can be forced to walk through. Happy times at the tables.

    and I do see a lot of guys playing this way and I must say that if I had a win goal and wanted to make that win goal each day or every other...I would utilize a martingale and hope I can continue to miss the pot holes...maybe some kind of divine intervention that allows me to avoid the dreaded catastrophe?

    No doubt I would utilize this play over simply trying to grind it out with discipline.

    Wink Martingale really was the best tic-tac-dough host, and still had time to come up with a great craps system.....A game show host and a craps strategy named after him.....amazing talent......
