What is 10x odds or 100x odds?

I know just enough about craps to be dangerous. I see casinos offer 10x odds on craps or even 100x odds. What does this mean? Is it that they pay more for certain bets or is it the multiple that I'm allowed to put on an odds bet? That is - is it about payoffs or bet limits?

Thanks!

It is the multiple of your line bet for odds. The odds bet pays true odds with no house edge.

And the odds bet is the best bet on the table, right? So it's to my advantage to place a large bet on odds?

Thanks!

It is about the bet limits. Say you're betting $5 Pass Line bets. At a casino with Double (2X) odds you can bet $10 for your odds. 5X $25, 10X $50, 100X $500. Just remember the less you bet the more you lose when you win. The more you bet on the odds the more you can win or lose. So, not always is the casino doing you a favor by offering $100 times odds.

The odds is the best bet on a Craps table, it's the only bet that pays off at the true amount. All other bets the casino cheats you a little or a lot. The worst bets on the table is Any 7, Big 6 and Big 8. Field if the 2 or 12 does not pay Triple.
