For example, your horse could be walking along the pasture line and could get the blanket caught on a piece of fence and rip the blanket trying to get away from the fence. A big or loose blanket is also not very effective at helping block out the cold blustery winter weather.
Hair that rubs off can also lead to sores, making your horse uncomfortable. Putting a blanket on your horse that is too small can also restrict his movement and not allow him to move his legs, neck and body freely, making it difficult for him to walk or move around. Much like a blanket that is too small, if the neck opening is not large enough, it can cause rubbing as well as not allowing your horse to move his neck around freely.
It should fit snug, but not too tight. If the neck opening is too big or loose, then the wind and wet weather will get under the blanket, therefore the blanket will be kind of pointless and not doing its job. The neck opening should be snug enough so his chest wont be exposed, but not loose enough to where the blanket can move up, down and all around. If your horse likes to eat and chew or play with his blankets, then you should look into purchasing a closed front blanket.
When you go to hook these straps to the opposite side of the blanket, the straps should cross underneath his belly and make an X. You should also be able to slide your hand between his belly and the straps, allowing enough room for four fingers to fit from the bottom of his belly to the straps. If these straps are too tight, they can cause rubbing. If they are too lose, your horse could potentially get his leg caught in them while running or playing in the field.
The leg straps are located in the back of the blanket. Much like the surcingle straps, these straps should not be really tight, but should not be loose enough to where the straps could get caught on something. Use those muscles!
Allow it to soak for around 10 minutes, and then repeat the scrubbing process. Drain the tub and rinse the blanket until there's no more soap. To dry, gently squeeze water out without wringing it. Lay flat to dry. This can take a while, so try to find a place with good air circulation, sunlight, or near a heating vent. There are some fillers you shouldn't be getting wet at all, such as natural materials like sand, rice, or beans, as they could rot.
This makes these pretty tricky to clean, so you'll want to check in with the manufacturer for their tips. Here, Van der Linde shares some general best practices for washing your weighted blanket.

The maximum bet is based on the maximum allowed win from a single roll. Easy way is not a specific bet offered in standard casinos, but a term used to define any number combination which has two ways to roll. For example, 6—4, 4—6 would be a "10 easy". The 4, 6, 8 or 10 can be made both hard and easy ways. Betting point numbers which pays off on easy or hard rolls of that number or single-roll "hop" bets e. A player can choose either the 6 or 8 being rolled before the shooter throws a seven.
These wagers are usually avoided by experienced craps players since they pay even money while a player can make place bets on the 6 or the 8, which pay more The bets are located in the corners behind the pass line, and bets may be placed directly by players. In addition place bets are usually not working, except by agreement, when the shooter is "coming out" i. Single-roll proposition bets are resolved in one dice roll by the shooter.
Most of these are called "service bets", and they are located at the center of most craps tables. Only the stickman or a dealer can place a service bet. Single-roll bets can be lower than the table minimum, but the maximum bet allowed is also lower than the table maximum. The lowest single-roll bet can be a minimum one unit bet.
Single bets are always working by default unless the player specifies otherwise. The bets include:. The stickman places this bet on the line dividing the 2 and 12 bets. The combine payout is on craps and on 11 yo. Another method of calculating the payout is to divide the total bet in half.
The player would receive minus half the total bet payout on half the total bet for craps and minus half the total bet payout on half the total bet for 11 yo. Both methods of calculation yield the same result so either method can be used. If a player wishes to take the bet down after a win the player would receive the whole bet not half even though only one of the two bets can win per roll.
One of the two bets will always lose, the other may win. Any seven: A single roll bet which wins if the shooter rolls a 7 with payout. This bet is also nicknamed Big Red, since the 7 on its betting space on the layout is usually large and red, and it is considered bad luck [ by whom?
Horn: This is a bet that involves betting on 1 unit each for 2, 3, 11 and 12 at the same time for the next roll. The bet is actually four separate bets, and pays off depending on which number is actually rolled. The combined payout is for 2, 12 and for 3, Each individual bet has the same payout as a single bet on the specific numbers, for 2 and 12 minus the other three bets, for 3 and 11 minus the other three bets.
If a player wins the bet he can take down all four bets instead of a single bet even though only one bet can win per roll. Many players, in order to eliminate the confusion of tossing four chips to the center of the table or having change made while bets are being placed, will make a five-unit Horn High bet, which is a four-way bet with the extra unit going to one specific number.
Horn bets are generally required to be in multiples of 4 or 5 with the minimum bet being 4 times the minimum unit allowed. Whirl or World: A five-unit bet that is a combination of a horn and any-seven bet, with the idea that if a seven is rolled the bet is a push, because the money won on the seven is lost on the horn portions of the bet. The combine odds are on the 2, 12, on the 3, 11, and a push on the 7.
The minimum bet is five of the minimum units. On the Hop, Hop or Hopping: A single roll bet on any particular combination of the two dice on the next roll including combinations whose sum is 7 e. For example, if you bet on "5 and 1" on the hop, you are betting that the next roll will have a 5 on one die and a 1 on the other die. The bet pays on easy ways same as a bet on 3 or Hard ways hop pays e. The true odds are and , resulting in a house edge of When presented, hop bets are located at the center of the craps layout with the other proposition bets.
If hop bets are not on the craps layout, they still may be bet on by players but they become the responsibility of the boxman to book the bet. Sometimes players may request to hop a whole number. In this case the money on the bet different combinations.
For example, if a player says "hop the tens" 6—4, 5—5, 4—6 the player must give the dealer an even number bet so it can be divided among the hard and easy ways. If a player wishes to "hop the sevens" there would be three different combinations and six possible ways to roll a 7 6—1, 5—2, 4—3, 3—4, 2—5, 1—6 therefore the player should bet in multiples of 3 so the bet can be divided among each combination with a payout minus the other two bets, otherwise if players does not bet in multiples of 3, they would specific which combination has additional units.
Field: This bet is a wager that one of the numbers 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, or 12 will appear on the next roll of the dice. This bet typically pays more or if 2 or 12 is rolled, and if 3, 4, 9, 10 or 11 is rolled. The Field bet is a "Self-Service" Bet. Unlike the other proposition bets which are handled by the dealers or stickman, the field bet is placed directly by the player. Players identify their Field bets by placing them in the Field area directly in front of them or as close to their position as possible.
Fire Bet: Before the shooter begins, some casinos will allow a bet known as a fire bet to be placed. As different individual points are made by the shooter, they will be marked on the craps layout with a fire symbol. The first three points will not pay out on the fire bet, but the fourth, fifth and sixth will pay out at increasing odds.
The fourth point pays at to-1, the fifth point pays at to-1 and the 6th point pays at to Note that the points must all be different numbers for them to count towards the fire bet. For example, a shooter who successfully hits a point of 10 twice will only garner credit for the first one on the fire bet. Players must hit the established point in order for it to count toward the fire bet. The payout is determine by the number of points which have been established and hit after the shooter sevens out.
These bets pay for-1, for a house advantage of 7. This pays for-1, for a house edge of 7. For all three wagers, the order in which the numbers are hit does not matter. Whenever a seven is hit, including on the come out roll, all bonus bets lose, the bonus board is reset, and new bonus bets may be placed. A player may wish to make multiple different bets. If one of the bets win the dealer may automatically replenish the losing bet with profits from the winning bet.
In this example, if the shooter rolls a hard 8 pays , the horn loses. If the player does not want the bet replenished, he or she should request any or all bets be taken down. A working bet is a live bet. Bets may also be on the board, but not in play and therefore not working. Pass line and come bets are always working meaning the chips are in play and the player is therefore wagering live money. Other bets may be working or not working depending whether a point has been established or player's choice.
Place and buy bets are working by default when a point is established and not working when the point is off unless the player specifies otherwise. Lay bets are always working even if a point has not been established unless the player requests otherwise.
At any time, a player may wish to take any bet or bets out of play. The dealer will put an "Off" button on the player's specific bet or bets; this allows the player to keep his chips on the board without a live wager. For example, if a player decides not to wager a place bet mid-roll but wishes to keep the chips on the number, he or she may request the bet be "not working" or "Off".
The chips remain on the table, but the player cannot win from or lose chips which are not working. The opposite is also allowed. By default place and buy bets are not working without an established point; a player may wish to wager chips before a point has been established. In this case, the player would request the bet be working in which the dealer will place an "On" button on the specified chips. The probability of dice combinations determine the odds of the payout.
The following chart shows the dice combinations needed to roll each number. The two and twelve are the hardest to roll since only one combination of dice is possible. The game of craps is built around the dice roll of seven, since it is the most easily rolled dice combination. The expected value of all bets is usually negative, such that the average player will always lose money.
This is because the house always sets the paid odds to below the actual odds. However, this "free odds" bet cannot be made independently, so the expected value of the entire bet, including odds, is still negative. Since there is no correlation between die rolls, there is normally no possible long-term winning strategy in craps.
There are occasional promotional variants that provide either no house edge or even a player edge. One example is a field bet that pays on 12 and on either 3 or This is sometimes seen at casinos running limited-time incentives, in jurisdictions or gaming houses that require the game to be fair, or in layouts for use in informal settings using play money. No casino currently runs a craps table with a bet that yields a player edge full-time.
Maximizing the size of the odds bet in relation to the line bet will reduce, but never eliminate the house edge, and will increase variance. Most casinos have a limit on how large the odds bet can be in relation to the line bet, with single, double, and five times odds common. Some casinos offer 3—4—5 odds, referring to the maximum multiple of the line bet a player can place in odds for the points of 4 and 10, 5 and 9, and 6 and 8, respectively.
During promotional periods, a casino may even offer x odds bets, which reduces the house edge to almost nothing, but dramatically increases variance, as the player will be betting in large betting units. Since several of the multiple roll bets pay off in ratios of fractions on the dollar, it is important that the player bets in multiples that will allow a correct payoff in complete dollars.
Normally, payoffs will be rounded down to the nearest dollar, resulting in a higher house advantage. These bets include all place bets, taking odds, and buying on numbers 6, 8, 5, and 9, as well as laying all numbers. These variants depend on the casino and the table, and sometimes a casino will have different tables that use or omit these variants and others. When craps is played in a casino, all bets have a house advantage.
There may be players who are lucky and get ahead for a period of time, but in the long run these winning streaks are eroded away. One can slow, but not eliminate, one's average losses by only placing bets with the smallest house advantage. The place bets and buy bets differ from the pass line and come line, in that place bets and buy bets can be removed at any time, since, while they are multi-roll bets, their odds of winning do not change from roll to roll, whereas pass line bets and come line bets are a combination of different odds on their first roll and subsequent rolls.
The first roll of a pass line bet is advantage for the player 8 wins, 4 losses , but it's "paid for" by subsequent rolls that are at the same disadvantage to the player as the don't pass bets were at an advantage. As such, they cannot profitably let you take down the bet after the first roll. This bet generally has a higher house edge than place betting, unless the casino offers high odds.
Conversely, you can take back pick up a don't pass or don't come bet after the first roll, but this cannot be recommended, because you already endured the disadvantaged part of the combination — the first roll. On that come-out roll, you win just 3 times 2 and 3 , while losing 8 of them 7 and 11 and pushing one 12 out of the 36 possible rolls.
On the other 24 rolls that become a point, your don't pass bet is now to your advantage by 4 and 10 , 5 and 9 and 6 and 8. However, players can still make standard lay bets odds on any of the point numbers 4,5,6,8,9, Among these, and the remaining numbers and possible bets, there are a myriad of systems and progressions that can be used with many combinations of numbers.
An important alternative metric is house advantage per roll rather than per bet , which may be expressed in loss per hour. Besides the rules of the game itself, a number of formal and informal rules are commonly applied in the table form of Craps, especially when played in a casino. To reduce the potential opportunity for switching dice by sleight-of-hand , players are not supposed to handle the dice with more than one hand such as shaking them in cupped hands before rolling nor take the dice past the edge of the table.
If a player wishes to change shooting hands, they may set the dice on the table, let go, then take them with the other hand. When throwing the dice, the player is expected to hit the farthest wall at the opposite end of the table these walls are typically augmented with pyramidal structures to ensure highly unpredictable bouncing after impact.
Casinos will sometimes allow a roll that does not hit the opposite wall as long as the dice are thrown past the middle of the table; a very short roll will be nullified as a "no roll". The dice may not be slid across the table and must be tossed. Players are generally asked not to throw the dice above a certain height such as the eye level of the dealers. This is both for the safety of those around the table, and to eliminate the potential use of such a throw as a distraction device in order to cheat.
Dice are still considered "in play" if they land on players' bets on the table, the dealer's working stacks, on the marker puck, or with one die resting on top of the other. The roll is invalid if either or both dice land in the boxman's bank, the stickman's bowl where the extra three dice are kept between rolls , or in the rails around the top of the table where players chips are kept.
If one or both dice hits a player or dealer and rolls back onto the table, the roll counts as long as the person being hit did not intentionally interfere with either of the dice, though some casinos will rule "no roll" for this situation. If one or both leave the table, it is also a "no roll", and the dice may either be replaced or examined by the boxman and returned to play.
Shooters may wish to "set" the dice to a particular starting configuration before throwing such as showing a particular number or combination, stacking the dice, or spacing them to be picked up between different fingers , but if they do, they are often asked to be quick about it so as not to delay the game. Some casinos disallow such rituals to speed up the pace of the game. In most casinos, players are not allowed to hand anything directly to dealers, and vice versa.
Items such as cash, checks, and chips are exchanged by laying them down on the table; for example, when "buying in" paying cash for chips , players are expected to place the cash on the layout: the dealer will take it and then place the chips in front of the player. This rule is enforced in order to allow the casino to easily monitor and record all transfers via overhead surveillance cameras, and to reduce the opportunity for cheating via sleight-of-hand.
Most casinos prohibit "call bets", and may have a warning such as "No Call Bets" printed on the layout to make this clear. This means a player may not call out a bet without also placing the corresponding chips on the table. Such a rule reduces the potential for misunderstanding in loud environments, as well as disputes over the amount that the player intended to bet after the outcome has been decided.
Some casinos choose to allow call bets once players have bought-in. When allowed, they are usually made when a player wishes to bet at the last second, immediately before the dice are thrown, to avoid the risk of obstructing the roll. Craps is among the most social and most superstitious of all gambling games, which leads to an enormous variety of informal rules of etiquette that players may be expected to follow. Tipping the dealers is universal and expected in Craps. As in most other casino games, a player may simply place or toss chips onto the table and say, "For the dealers", "For the crew", etc.
In craps, it is also common to place a bet for the dealers. This is usually done one of three ways: by placing an ordinary bet and simply declaring it for the dealers, as a "two-way", or "on top". A "Two-Way" is a bet for both parties: for example, a player may toss in two chips and say "Two Way Hard Eight", which will be understood to mean one chip for the player and one chip for the dealers. Players may also place a stack of chips for a bet as usual, but leave the top chip off-center and announce "on top for the dealers".
In some cases, players may also tip each other, for example as a show of gratitude to the thrower for a roll on which they win a substantial bet. Craps players routinely practice a wide range of superstitious behaviors, and may expect or demand these from other players as well.
Most prominently, it is universally considered bad luck to say the word "seven" after the "come-out", a roll of 7 is a loss for "pass" bets. Dealers themselves often make significant efforts to avoid calling out the number. When necessary, participants may refer to seven with a "nickname" such as "Big Red" or just "Red" , "the S-word", etc. Although no wagering system can consistently beat casino games based on independent trials such as craps, that does not stop gamblers from believing in them.
One of the best known systems is the Martingale System. In this strategy, the gambler doubles his bet after every loss. After a win, the bet is reset to the original bet. The theory is that the first win would recover all previous losses plus win a profit equal to the original stake. Other systems depend on the gambler's fallacy, which in craps terms is the belief that past dice rolls influence the probabilities of future dice rolls.
For example, the gambler's fallacy indicates that a craps player should bet on eleven if an eleven has not appeared or has appeared too often in the last 20 rolls. In practice this can be observed as players respond to a roll such as a Hard Six with an immediate wager on the Hard Six. Even if the dice are actually biased toward particular results "loaded" , each roll is still independent of all the previous ones. The common term to describe this is "dice have no memory".
Another approach is to "set" the dice in a particular orientation, and then throw them in such a manner that they do not tumble randomly. The theory is that given exactly the same throw from exactly the same starting configuration, the dice will tumble in the same way and therefore show the same or similar values every time. Casinos take steps to prevent this. The dice are usually required to hit the back wall of the table, which is normally faced with an angular texture such as pyramids, making controlled spins more difficult.
There has been no independent evidence that such methods can be successfully applied in a real casino. Bank craps is a variation of the original craps game and is sometimes known as Las Vegas Craps. This variant is quite popular in Nevada gambling houses, and its availability online has now made it a globally played game. Bank craps uses a special table layout and all bets must be made against the house.
In Bank Craps, the dice are thrown over a wire or a string that is normally stretched a few inches from the table's surface. Generally, if the word "craps" is used without any modifier, it can be inferred to mean this version of the game, to which most of this article refers. Crapless craps, also known as Bastard Craps, is a simple version of the original craps game, and is normally played as an online private game.
The biggest difference between crapless craps and original craps, is that the shooter person throwing the dice is at a far greater disadvantage and has a house edge of 5. Another difference is that this is one of the craps games in which a player can bet on rolling a 2, 3, 11 or 12 before a 7 is thrown.
In crapless craps, 2 and 12 have odds of and have a house edge of 7. New York Craps is one of the variations of craps played mostly in the Eastern coast of the US, true to its name. History states that this game was actually found and played in casinos in Yugoslavia, the UK and the Bahamas. In this craps variant, the house edge is greater than Las Vegas Craps or Bank craps. The table layout is also different, and is called a double-end-dealer table. This variation is different from the original craps game in several ways, but the primary difference is that New York craps doesn't allow Come or Don't Come bets.
New York Craps Players bet on box numbers like 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or In order to get around California laws barring the payout of a game being directly related to the roll of dice, Indian reservations have adapted the game to substitute cards for dice. In one variation, there are no dice at all. Two shoes are used, each containing some number of regular card decks that have been stripped down to just the Aces and deuces through sixes.
The boxman simply deals one card from each shoe and that is the roll on which bets are settled. In a similar variation, cards representing dice are dealt directly from a continuous shuffling machine CSM. Typically, the CSM will hold approximately cards, or 44 sets of 1 through 6 spot cards. Two cards are dealt from the CSM for each roll. The game is played exactly as regular craps, but the roll distribution of the remaining cards in the CSM is slightly skewed from the normal symmetric distribution of dice.
Even if the dealer were to shuffle each roll back into the CSM, the effect of buffering a number of cards in the chute of the CSM provides information about the skew of the next roll. Analysis shows this type of game is biased towards the don't pass and don't come bets. To replicate the original dice odds exactly without dice or possibility of card-counting, another scheme uses two shuffle machines with just one deck of Ace through 6 each.
Each machine selects one of the 6 cards at random and this is the roll. The selected cards are replaced and the decks are reshuffled for the next roll. In this game variation, one red deck and one blue deck of six cards each A through 6 , and a red die and a blue die are used. Each deck is shuffled separately, usually by machine. Each card is then dealt onto the layout, into the 6 red and 6 blue numbered boxes. The shooter then shoots the dice. The red card in the red-numbered box corresponding to the red die, and the blue card in the blue-numbered box corresponding to the blue die are then turned over to form the roll on which bets are settled.
Another variation uses a red and a blue deck of 36 custom playing cards each. Each card has a picture of a two-die roll on it — from 1—1 to 6—6. The shooter shoots what looks like a red and a blue die, called "cubes". They are numbered such that they can never throw a pair, and that the blue one will show a higher value than the red one exactly half the time.
One such scheme could be on the red die and on the blue die. One card is dealt from the red deck and one is dealt from the blue deck. The shooter throws the "cubes" and the color of the cube that is higher selects the color of the card to be used to settle bets.
On one such table, an additional one-roll prop bet was offered: If the card that was turned over for the "roll" was either 1—1 or 6—6, the other card was also turned over. If the other card was the "opposite" 6—6 or 1—1, respectively of the first card, the bet paid for this proposition. And additional variation uses a single set of 6 cards, and regular dice.
The roll of the dice maps to the card in that position, and if a pair is rolled, then the mapped card is used twice, as a pair. Recreational or informal playing of craps outside of a casino is referred to as street craps or private craps. The most notable difference between playing street craps and bank craps is that there is no bank or house to cover bets in street craps. Players must bet against each other by covering or fading each other's bets for the game to be played. If money is used instead of chips and depending on the laws of where it is being played, street craps can be an illegal form of gambling.
There are many variations of street craps. The simplest way is to either agree on or roll a number as the point, then roll the point again before you roll a seven. Unlike more complex proposition bets offered by casinos, street craps has more simplified betting options. The shooter is required to make either a Pass or a Don't Pass bet if he wants to roll the dice. Another player must choose to cover the shooter to create a stake for the game to continue. If there are several players, the rotation of the player who must cover the shooter may change with the shooter comparable to a blind in poker.
The person covering the shooter will always bet against the shooter. For example, if the shooter made a "Pass" bet, the person covering the shooter would make a "Don't Pass" bet to win.

Everyone loves a cosy, inviting bedroom but you may feel that achieving one requires too much time or money.
In fact, all you need is careful planning and judicious thought before purchasing bedding and throws and, soon, you too can have the cosy bedroom of your dreams! Plush Elements When purchasing bedding, do choose the best quality that you can afford and look out for discounts, money off offers and other good deals. Imagine being able to pay the same for top-quality luxury bedding as you do for cheaper products?
It is possible, as long as you watch stores for sales and special offers and take advantage of such occasions. Even if you have to pay the full price for top quality bedding, it is often well worth the extra pennies as you end up with a product that will last very well for many years, even as it adds an air of true luxury to your bedroom. Bedrooms are often a handy place to stash bulky items and boxes of stuff waiting to be sorted out.
This is all very well for a short time, but make sure that you reclaim your bedroom space promptly! Simply having plenty of room to manoeuvre in a bedroom can feel like a luxury! Invest in a thick plush rug as a treat for your feet! There is a great earthy pleasure to be had from sinking your bare feet into a gorgeous shag pile rug, and they do not have to cost a lot of money. When it is cold outside, hopping into bed can be a very unpleasant affair if the bedding is crisp and cool!
Delightful in summer, but numbingly cold in winter, cotton bedding has its place in a summer bedroom only! Purchase a set or two of winter bedding and delight in the cosy comfort every night when you slide into a toasty warm bed. Throws Every bed should have one or two throws draped artlessly over a corner. The simple sight of a cosy and welcoming throw instantly adds a degree or two of comfort to any bedroom. Knit Delight Knitted throws and blankets add a wonderfully homely air to any bedroom, infusing it with love and charm.
If you make the blanket yourself or, even better, have a much loved relative make it for you you will always associate the warmth and comfort that you receive from the blanket with the care and effort that went into making the blanket — a kind of dual blessing!
