: When I was younger, I used to hang around where shooting craps was a popular form of gambling. I used to hear the phrase 7 come 11 a lot. I want to say it was on the first roll of the dice, but that has been a long time ago. What exactly does the phrase mean?

The first roll is indeed the "come roll," and you are hoping for a 7 or an 11, both winners. Your bet on this roll is called the "come-bet." But more than that I can't tell you.
