For whatever reason, the Yo 11 bet is one of the most popular wagers in all of gambling. As its name states, an "eleven" must roll on the dice in order for this wager to be a winner. It should also be noted that this bet is only good for one roll. If you should win, the dealer will pay you at 15-1 odds and leave your original bet on the table. You may of course ask for that original bet to be taken down as well.
Despite the payout odds on this bet being 15-1, the true odds are actually 17-1. This means that the house is holding an 11.11% advantage on this wager, one of the biggest house advantage's that this game has to offer and a far cry from the best bet on the table which is the 1.36% pass line bet.
People LOVE to place this bet on the come out roll. (If it hits, it's considered to be a pass-line winner on the comeout, a loser for those playing "the don't") Another time people love to get down on a "yo" is when their winning big and looking to parley their profits.
In summary, while the YO is one of the more exciting bets on the table, it's a sucker bet. Then again, we do enter the casino to gamble DON'T WE?
So why "Yo Eleven" and not just give me an "11" for $10? This is because there is a bunch of action going on at the craps table and the two numbers "seven" and "eleven" sound similar. By adding the "yo" before calling out the number it distinguishes the two.
