Paying x31 in is surprisingly easy!!
BET X 3 ADD ZERO ADD BET$1 bet x31 1 x 3 = 3 add zero = 30 still up or 31 down $3 bet x313 x 3 = 9 add zero = 90 still up or 93 down $5 bet x315 x 3 = 15 add zero 150 still up or 155 down $7 bet x31 7 x 3=21 add zero 210 still up or 217 down $9 bet x319 x 3=27 add zero 270 still up or 279 down $12 bet x3112 x 3=36 add zero 360 still up or 372 down $15 bet x3115 x 3=45 add zero 450 still up or 465 down $25 bet x3125 x 3=75 add zero 750 still up or 775 down 16x is more difficult only because you are not familiar with multiplying 16 as you are with say 5, 7 or 9 (You will be lol)
Most players bet $1 - $5 then jump to $10, $25, $50 but there will be times that these bets will get nasty if the dice are hot and players are winning big. |

**A couple of different ways to figure out x16….Let's assume the player bet $6 straight up**

**Option 1**…‘First nine’ bets and payoffs. The chart (above) is 16 for 1

so a $6 bet would pay $96 then you will have to subtract the bet because we want the original bet to stay

**up to win again**96 – 6 = $90

**Option 2**…Using a 15

**to**1 pay scale

15 x 6 = 90 automatically leaving the $6 bet

**up to win again**.

**Option 3**….Bet plus half add zero is yet another way… for example, player bets $6 (x16) the bet ($6) plus half ($3) = $9 add a zero = $90 and that will also keep the players bet on the table

**up to win again**.

**Option 4**…Dealers also look at chips to figure out x16. Example; each $5 red chip pays $75, each white $1 chip pays 15 / So a $6 bet would be one red and one white chip. 75 + 15 =90 and as the options above, the bet is automatically stays

**up to win again**

**Option 5**…Some dealers look at each $1 chip pays 16 and each $5 red chip pays $80 and $25 green pays $400. / So this $6 bet has one $5 red chip = $80 and one $1 chip = 16 / 80 + 16 = 96 ….leave the bet up to win again ($6) Pay player $90

**Option 6**… Some dealers look at the bet as units. A $6 bet consists of 1 nickel and one dollar. Each nickel pays 15 nickels and each dollar pays 15 dollars. 15 nickels = $75 then add $15 and the answer is $90.

So all six ways pays the player $90 and all six ways keeps the player

**up to win again**, meaning the original bet ($6) stays on the table for another roll of the dice.

Which way is best to figure out 16 for 1? Good question. There is no uniform way to pay 16 for 1. Therefore, I will attempt to pay some bets using all six options. Hopefully you will adapt one way and make it your own.

**PLAYER BETS $13**(16 for 1)

**Option 1**…‘first nine’ 16

**for**1

When I see, a $13 bet…

I see

**1**0 paying

**16**0

I see 3 paying 48

160 + 48 = 208

Now I subtract the $13 bet

208 – 13 = 195

**PLAYER BETS $13**(16 for 1)

**Option 2**…using a 15

**to**1 pay scale

When this dealer looks at a $13 bet…

10 pays 150

3 pays 45

150 + 45 = 195

No need to subtract $13 bet.

**PLAYER BETS $13**(16 for 1)

**Option 3**…Bet plus half add a zero

When this dealer looks at a $13 bet…

The bet $13 plus half $6.50 = 19.50

Now add a zero = 19500 (195.00)

No need to subtract $13 bet.

**PLAYER BETS $13**(16 for 1)

**Option 4**…

Each $1 chip pays $15,

each $5 red chip pays $75

When this dealer looks at a $13 bet…

Two $5 red chips $75 each = $150

Three $1 chips each pay $15 = 45

150 + 45 = 195

No need to subtract $13 bet.

**PLAYER BETS $13**(16 for 1)

**Option 5**…

Each $1 =16,

$5 red = $80

$25 green = $400

The $13 bet has two $5 red chips at $80 each = 160 and three $1 chips at $48

160 + 48 = 208

Now I subtract the $13 bet

208 – 13 = 195

**PLAYER BETS $13**(16 for 1)

**Option 6**… The bet consists of 2 red chips and three dollar chips

2 red chips pays 30 red chips

3 dollar chips pays 45 dollar chips

30 red chips = $150 and 45 dollar chips = $45

$150 + $45 = $195

Therefore, as you can see all six options paid the player $195 and the players $13 bet stays

**up to win again**.

Lets do another….

**PLAYER BETS $23**(16 for 1)

**Option 1**. ‘First Nine’

When I look at a $23 bet…

**2**0 pays

**32**0

3 pays 48

320 + 48 = 368

Subtract $23 bet

368 – 23 = 345

**PLAYER BETS $23**(16 for 1)

**Option 2**. (15

**to**1)

When this dealer looks at a $23 bet…

20 x 15 = 300

3 x 15 = 45

150 + 45 = 345

No need to subtract $23 bet

**PLAYER BETS $23**(16 for 1)

**Option 3**. Bet + half

When this dealer looks at a $23 bet…

$23 bet plus half = 11.50

23 + 11.50 = 34.50

Add a zero = 345.00

**PLAYER BETS $23**(16 for 1)

**Option 4**. Each $5 chip pay $75, Each $1 chip Pay $15

When this dealer looks at the $23 bet…

Dealer sees four $5 red chips = $300

Dealer sees three $1 chips = $45

300 + 45 = 345

**PLAYER BETS $23**(16 for 1)

**Option 5**…

Each $1 =16,

$5 red = $80

$25 green = $400

$23 = four red = 320 (80x4)

Three dollar chips = 48

320 + 48 = 368

Subtract $23 bet = 345

**PLAYER BETS $23**(16 for 1)

**Option 6**…The bet consists of 4 red chips and three dollar chips

4 red chips pays 60 red chips

3 dollar chips pays 45 dollar chips

60 red chips = $300 and 45 dollar chips = $45

$300 + $45 = $345

So, as you can see all six options paid the player $345 and the players $23 bet stays

**up to win again**.

Some students are really good with math. Most are not. For those who are really good with math this section won't teach you anything but you have to remember on a live game you are on stage, up to 16 players watching you, a box supervisor, base dealers and a floor supervisor. You are on your own here. You have no calculator, pencil or paper. It's all done in your head. On stage with everyone looking directly at you.

Players yelling and screaming, players will attempt to bet before you pay off the bets, the box is mumbling out numbers he or she think is correct, the base dealer thinks he or she knows what the bets pay, even the players shoot out numbers for you to pay....all kinds of distractions, working swing shift there may be a band in the lounge, a loud band, casinos are very noisy...crazy shit sometimes. But you are the lead dealer, these are your bets. It's all on you.
