    I'm working on finishing up revisions to a Craps game that I wrote for Windows, and I'd like to get the maximum wager logic working correctly so it resembles a "typical" casino's rules. Since I have never been in a situation where I was betting at the upper limit of a table, this is somewhat foreign to me.

    Suppose the table maximum is 2500. Would the following be correct?

    • Even money bets (Pass Line, Don't Pass, Come, Don't Come, Big 6/8) would all be limited to 2500 max wager
    • Place Bets and Buy Bets are limited to 2500 max wager (even though the payout is more than even money?)
    • Field is limited to 2500 max wager (even with 2x and 3x payout for 2 and 12?)
    • Lay Bet would be limited so that the winning is 2500 max (?)
    • Prop Bets are limited so a winning payout does not exceed some multiplier of the table maximum (such as 3x)
    • Odds are not subject to the table limit, but have their own declared limits (such as 3x-4x-5x, or even 10x the flat bet)

    For Prop Bets, I read that 3x or 5x the table limit are common win limits. Any observations as to which is more common?

    1. Table limits are typically 100x table minimums.
    2. Odds limits that I have seen are stated in absolute amounts, not as multipliers. For example, a table stating a $2500 lid might say, "$10,000 maximum odds". (All the other items in your list look good to me.)
    3. The only prop betting limits I know of are in my local haunt and AFAIK apply on all tables regardless of the particular limit thereon: HARDWAYS: $100; 15 to 1 PAYOUTS: $50; 30 to 1 PAYOUTS: $25.

    Jfollas and TMS,

    The only thing I wanted to add, was in regards to Prop Bets. The tables I play are Vegas Strip Casinos, They have always been $100 max wager, for all bets/payout ratios. Although, I haven't been there since pre Mandalay Bay incident.

    Thanks!

    That's at least the second time, you've brought that incident up, why? :confused:

    VonDuck,

    I was in Vegas shortly before that, and I had definite arrangements to be there the Fri-Sun. after, I immediately canceled that trip. Also, I haven't returned since then, when I had been a STEADY weekend visitor for years, I at one time strongly considered moving there.
    It is and was a landmark event. Just like Kennedy, King, Kennedy assassinations were, and 911 for that matter, It's a Permanent Time Stamp in the Timeline of the people who were impacted by the event. Ignoring it is a greater disservice than to remember it.

    That incident knocked on my door also, for its location. Perhaps if I can widen the bubble a little, I'll share this little tid-bit with you sometime. :cool:

    VonDuck,

    When the time is right, you will know it. I'll wait.

    I think any gambler that goes to Vegas, more than 6 times a year, takes pause at the ramifications of this incident.
    It put vegas in the fish boll of all the school shootings, and mass murders of recent time.
    We now live in an age of looking over our shoulder, like I did in Vietnam.
    For me this is a revisit of war, a horrendous memory that I would want to forget
    and thought I had till this came up. I am more cautious now, than at any time in the last 50 yrs.
    I am 70 yrs old, and it makes me wonder if I will make 71. This is the Ultimate Prop Bet.
