After the player left, I asked the floorman how such play would be rated. And the casino thinks that kind of action is bad for its bottom line? I objected, asking about the come bets, and the floorman told me "we don't count come bets, same as odds, because the house has no advantage on them.
Apparently come bets carry zero house edge now. Bottom line, morons running the show. Feb 5, Threads: February 8th, at 2: Its all different everywhere you go.

Just getting into craps from blackjack, needed more excitement. But I also have an eye on comps. I understand that Odds are not counted at least in the two local casino whose pit bosses I asked. So my question would be why do what so many people do by placing two come bets then stop.
Does it not make more sense to see where the come bet would end up and then place that amount? The payout is the same correct? The only advantage I would see is getting paid on the come if a 7 or 11 is rolled after I make the come bet but I also would not lose the come if a craps number is rolled. Just want to make sure I am not missing something in regards to the payout. Comps never make up for the house edge. Just let me give a simple example.
Yes, you will get a better rating for comps but you are buying that rating with a poorer expectation on your gambling. In the end, you will lose far more than any comp is worth.
