The Big 6 and Big 8 bets are identical to the Place 6 and Place 8 bets except for their payoff and location on the table layout. Most casinos don’t offer these bets because most people don’t play them. If offered, these bets are in the self-service area, just above the Pass Line at the corner where the Pass Line bends. You can’t miss them because they’re labeled in big, red letters “Big 6” and “Big 8.” Unlike Placing the 6 or 8 where the dealer moves your chips into the 6 or 8 point box, you make these bets yourself by placing your chips directly into the Big 6 or Big 8 box. The Big 6 or Big 8 is an even-money bet, or 1:1. You can bet any amount as long as it’s within the table minimum and maximum.
One-roll bets are different from the standing bets discussed in my other articles in that their outcome is determined by only one roll (i.e., they win or lose on one roll). If the number you bet shows on that one roll, you win. If it doesn’t, you lose. Because their outcome is determined after one roll, their payoffs aren’t based on the number 7 but, instead, on the total number of dice combinations (i.e., 36). One-roll bets can be made at any time. The most common one-roll bets are: Field; Any Seven; Any Craps; C&E; Horn; Whirl; Two, Three, Eleven, and Twelve; Hop; Over 7; and Under 7.
