Question: What is a Fire Bet?

Harrah's Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas is offering a new wager on their layouts called a "Fire Bet". Many of you from the Midwest will recognize this wager, although the name and rules are somewhat different here in Las Vegas. 

Basically, they are asking Who's Got the HOT Hand?

Here are the rules for the Las Vegas version.

The bet: Only $1.00 to $5.00 wagers are accepted.
A FIRE BET will only be accepted prior to the shooters first "Come Out" Roll.
When making a FIRE BET, place your wager on the numerically marked FIRE BET circle on the layout, below your betting position.
The Dealer will collect the FIRE BET wagers and place them in their coordinating betting circles, in front of the box person, where they will remain until the bet is won or lost.
Once made, a FIRE BET cannot be called off or taken down.
The object of the bet is for the shooter to make as many "Individual Points" as possible before he/she 7's out. The term "Individual Point" means when the shooter successfully makes a point (4,5,6,8,9 or 10) that has not been previously made, it will count as one "Individual Point" made. Note: SUCCESSFULLY MAKING THE SAME POINT MORE THAN ONCE, WILL ONLY COUNT AS ONE 'INDIVIDUAL POINT' TOWARDS A PAY OFF THRESHOLD.
Only the highest payoff level met will be paid. Example: if (5) "Individual Points" are successfully made. Only the (5) point payoff will be made and not the lesser payoff threshold(s) met.
"Individual Points" do not have to be made in any specific order.
Winning or losing on the "Come Out" Roll will not effect this wager.
Only "Sevening Out" will terminate the wager.

Special FIRE BET pucks will be used to keep track of "Individual Points" made.

Payoff Table: 

4 "Individual Points" pays 25 for 1
5 "Individual Points" pays 250 for 1
6 "Individual Points" pays 1000 for 1
(Above Payoffs are "And Down".)

So far I have only seen this bet at Harrah's, but I would not be surprised to see more of the casinos add it in the future.

Another 20 minute roll!  I think between that little modification and adopting your betting tactics, that this will work well in the long run.  Thanks again!  - Bill -
