How about the secrets of the Don't Pass Parlay?
Don't betting is becoming more popular now, thanks to charting the tables and qualifying the shooters. A lot of bettors will start out on the pass line, but if a less than stellar shooter comes up to bat, many bettors will switch to the don't side.
Wanna know how craps pros maximum their profits by using a don't pass parlay?
Let's find out now how they do it – and how you can do it too!
You will begin betting after a shooter has made two points in a row. Then, just make a don't-pass bet for two units. If you win this bet, make another don't-pass for four units. When you win this second bet, make another four unit don't-pass along with a don't-come bet for two units and take max odds. If these two are won, make another don't-pass bet of four units, along with two don't-come bets, both with maximum odds. When you win all three of these bets you are finished, and you need to wait for another two pass line wins to begin again.
Now, a lot can happen to the two or three bets you have on the layout, as you can win some and lose others. You must keep track of all of your bets. Three bets are pretty easy to track, once you get used to it, but you might want to start out with a pen and paper.
If you lose a don't-pass bet, just go down one unit and bet again. So if you are at two units and lose, go down to one unit. If you are at four units and lose, go down to three units. In this system, you should never add odds to your don't-pass bet.
You will be adding odds to the don't-come bets only. If you have just one two unit don't-come bet with no odds and lose it, go down to one unit. If you have two units with odds, remove the odds next time. Conversely when you win either your don't-pass or don't-come bets, go up one unit.
So if you have one four unit don't-pass and two don't-come bets with double odds and if you win the don't-pass but lose both don't comes, you would bet five units on the don't-pass and two don't-come bets (two units each) with no odds.
Your game is over when you win the entire series of one don't-pass and two don't-come bets, eventually with double odds.
Any loss (even the come-outs) counts as a loss and any win counts as a win. If you are on the don't-pass and the shooter rolls a 2 or 3, it is a win, so you increase your next bet by one unit. If you are on the don't-come and the shooter throws a seven, you lose and should decrease your next don't-come bet.
If you lose two don't-pass bets in a row you should start over because it means that the shooter won the pass line two times in a row.
Obviously you need to be mindful of the shooter. This method is used primarily as an alternative to the pass line when the shooter is obviously unqualified. If a new, qualified shooter gets the dice you should immediately get your bets back on the pass line. But when there are lots of successful don't bettors at the table, playing in this manner could ensure a quick and easy profit on the dark side.
