The profit thing was more tongue and cheek than anything else. I'm definitley not guaranteeing anything, but if you are at a table where the pass line is being hit a couple times a roll and you are chipping up/pressing you can run things up pretty quickly. Obviously there is still an edge for the house in the long run but once you factor in comps and promotions, free drinks, and just the fun and entertainment value it's not bad at all. When you take the max odds at 10x the house edge is lowered to .00184 per pass line bet made and odds combined. When you take the max odds at 20x the house edge is lowered to .00099 per pass line bet made and odds combined. The one thing about playing at 10x or 20x be prepared to betting 50 or 100 at the minimum. Cause even if it's a $5 table you'll be backing it up with 50 or 100.
The two places I play are 10x and 20x so I'll start off with $5 on the pass backed by full odds and if it hits I chip up to $10 with full odds if that hits I chip up to $15 with full odds. I go back to the starting bet if 3 numbers hit. If I double what I started with I'll usually double my starting bet so I'll end up at $20 with full odds on the 3rd roll as opposed to 15.
If you need extra action after the initial pass line point is made then make come bets backed by full odds.
