Weaki Weaki

This is a term you can here in a casino at Hawaii - the stickman will say Weaki Weaki if the dices do not hit the backboard and roll back on the table. If this happens the dealers may advice the shooter to 'throw the dices as your ex was standing at the far end of the table' :-)

What Shot Jesse James ? A Forty-five

This is slang for a bet on the number 9 (5+4).

Whirl Bet

A whirl bet is a bet bet that the next throw with the dices will be 2-3-7-11 or 12, made in multiples of 5, with one unit on each of the numbers. Example: A $5 whirl bet would be $1 on 2 + $1 on 3 + $1 on 7 and $2 on 11 or 12.

Winner on the Dark Side

A bet that the next roll will be 3.

Working

A craps term meaning that the bets are at risk on the next throw with the dices.

Working Bets

Working bets are bets that are 'live' Example: The bets that can be resolved with the next roll are said to be working. Generally, place number bets, buy and lay bets, and come odds bets do not work on the come out roll - unless you tell the dealers to 'make them work'. All other bets - like hardways - work unless you call them OFF. You can call a bet off by telling the dealers you do not want them to 'work'.

World Bets

A world bet is a bet that the next roll will be 2- 3- 7 and 11 or 12, made in multiples of 5, with one unit on each of the numbers. Example: A $5 world bet would be $1 on 2 + $1 on 3 + $1 on 7 and $2 on 11 or 12.

Wrong Better

A wrong better is a craps player who bets that the dice will not pass - and therefore he is normally not very popular at the craps table - at least not among the betters who are Betting Right.
