The Field

The Field is a one-roll bet looking for a 2, 3, ,4, 9, 10, 11 or 12. The fact that it's a one roll bet makes it a little less appealing. Making a Place bet is a better investment of your money.

Placement of the Field

The Field is a self-service bet meaning that you must take care of it yourself. If you want to make a Field bet you do not have to tell the dealer, all you have to do is put the money in there. Self-service also means that it is your responsibility to know where your money is. If you are not paying attention to your money then there is a chance someone else can pick it up and claim it as their own.

What does the Field Pay

The Field Pays even money if the 3, 4, 9, 10, or 11 are rolled. If the 2 or 12 rolls, it usually pays double. In some casinos either the 2 or 12 will pay triple but never both.

Betting the Field for the Dealers

I don't see many players betting for the dealers in the Field but if you do, we'd be sure to appreciate it. If a bet less than the table minimum is in the Field then it is assumed to be for the dealers.
