Iron Cross Betting: This involves that you will win on any number except a seven being rolled. It requires a bigger bankroll and you will not want your money exposed for very long, maybe 3 or 4 hits and then take it all down or change your bet to a smaller place 6|8 bet. Here is how to do it.

After a point is established (important, it will not work on the come out) Place 34 dollars in the Come Box and tell the dealer "Place the 6|8 for 12 dollars, Place the 5 for 10 dollars". Then you will need to put another 5 dollars on the field box. Here are the results below

2 = +10
3 = +5
4 = +5
5 = +9 (you will win 14, but lose the field -5, replace the field bet)
6 = +9 (you will win 14, but lose the field -5, replace the field bet)
8 = +9 (you will win 14, but lose the field -5, replace the field bet)
9 = +5
10 = +5
11 = +5
12 = +10 or +15 (depends on double or triple table)

7 = -39 (it wipes out everything)

You can see why you would only want it out there on 3 or 4 rolls as the 7 wipes you out, but you can use this to win some money and then turn around and remove all your bets and then place a smaller bet with your winnings like a six dollar 6|8. Statistically, it isn't the greatest betting system with a 3.24% house edge, but Iron cross betting is great for players who like lots of action and want to win frequently.

Patricia Demauro of Denville, N.J. is the new record holder for the longest craps roll. Demauro bought into a game for $100 at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, in Atlantic City, N.J. After 4 hours, 18 minutes, and 154 rolls later she sevened out and shattering a record that has stood for nearly 20 years. The old records was held by Stanley Fujitake of Honolulu, Hawaii. On May 28th, 1989, Mr. Fujitake lasted 118 rolls (including 18 pass line wins) and 3 hours, 6 minutes.

Demauro wouldn’t comment on her winnings, but did say “This was very exciting for me to be a part of history.”
