# Place bets don’t pay

The Place odds for the 6 and 8 are 7:6, which means the bet should be in multiples of \$6. For example, a winning \$12 Place bet on the 6 gets you \$14. A winning \$30 Place bet on the 8 gets you \$35. Do the math. For your \$30 Place bet on the 8 (which has Place odds of 7:6), \$30 divided by 6 = \$5, and \$5 x 7 = \$35.

Know the difference between Place odds and true odds. Learn the difference so you don’t have to think about it. You don’t want to look like a newbie fumbling around with how much to put down for each Place number. (James Bond never asked the dealer, “Um, excuse me, how much is the six?”) However, if you have trouble remembering the Place odds the first time you play, don’t be afraid to ask the dealer how much to drop. It’ll be as easy as pie after 15 minutes at the table.

If you’re like me, you’ll search out and play a table with a \$3 minimum bet instead of the typical \$5 or \$10 minimum. Suppose you find a \$3 table (a few are still left in the middle of the Vegas Strip). Since the minimum bet is only \$3, you can make \$3 Place bets, but you don’t get the full Place odds. The payoff odds for a \$3 bet on the 6 or 8 are 1:1, or even money. For the 5 or 9, it’s 4:3 (i.e., your \$3 bet wins \$4). For the 4 or 10, it’s 5:3 (i.e., your \$3 bet wins \$5). UFABET
