Come Bet - Come Bar
The come bet works much like the pass line bet and it is one of the most popular wagers on the table with some of the best odds and lowest house edge. The only difference between the come bet and the pass line bet is that you are wagering on the come bet only after a point has been established. The rules are still the same as the regular pass line bet.
Basically, you can wait until the shooter has established a point. The shooter will have rolled a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 and established a point. Once this has happened, you can place a come bet. When you have wagered, the shooter will keep rolling. You will lose if a 2, 3 or 12 is rolled and win if a 7 or 11 is rolled.
Any come bet is almost like an individual pass line bet on every roll. For example, if you roll anything other than 2, 3, 12 or 7, 11 or the original point, you will land on some other number which could be thought of as a "secondary" point. Your chips will then be moved up to that other number you rolled and you can actually keep making come bets which can establish to other "secondary" point numbers. The shooter must roll these same point numbers in order to win.
Also, if the shooter rolls the original point number (where the puck is displayed as on), the round ends, but your come bets still remain and players can make pass line bets again as well. The player will lose all of their come bets once the shooter rolls a seven.
This bet pays even odds or 1:1 and the actual odds are 251:244, which leaves a small house edge of 1.41%. In fact, this is exactly the same odds as the pass line bet, which is expected. I displayed a photo of the bet below for illustration. First, the shooter throws the come out roll, which ended up being 8. The number 8 became established as the point and players could then make come bets. I made a come bet of $88. I would lose that bet if the shooter rolls a 2, 3 or 12 and win if they roll a 7 or 11. Also, if the dealer throws a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, then my chips would move up to one of those numbers and the shooter would have to throw that number again for me to win. I could also make an additional come bet at any time on any roll as long as a point is established.
In addition to the come bet, players have the option to place a come odds bet as well, which has a 0% or no house edge! This is the same as the free pass odds wager.
