best bets in craps strategy
There are probably over 100 different bets and combination of bets at craps, not all of them on the layout. Here are the 10 best bets at craps in order.
1. Taking over or buying player don’t bets.
This Frank Scoblete is the one of the most popular gaming authors in America. He has released sixteen books, three audiotapes, three videotapes, and his own imprint, the Scoblete Get-the-Edge Guides. Frank's website is www.goldentouchcraps.com is a bet that very few people know about. Often wrong bettors will place don’t pass and/or don’t come bets that wind up on the six or eight.
For a don’t bettor, the most dangerous part of the game is trying to get up on the number since he has to buck the appearance of the seven and 11 to do so.
But once up on the numbers, the don’t bettor has the best of it because he is now rooting for the seven, which has six chances of appearing in 36 possible combinations of two six-sided dice. The six and eight can each be made five ways.
So if you are up on the don’t-six, you have six ways to win (on the number seven) and five ways to lose. When the bet is $10, you would win $60, lose $50, and be ahead by $10 after the 11 decisions (on average).
If you see a don’t player about to take his bet down just say to the fellow: “Don9rsquo;t! Here’s $10 bucks, you’re even!” He’ll take the $10 because that’s what his bet is. Now the bet is yours and you have a nice six to five edge! If the player is betting $15 or more on the don’t. You can even offer to “buy9rdquo; the number by giving him $16, instead of $15.
He makes a profit and so will you (in the long run). On 11 decisions of $15, you will win $90, lose $75 plus $11 for buying the bet and come out ahead by four dollars.
As the amount on the don’t bet increases you will still probably be able to buy the bet for one dollar because the don’t player was willing to take it back with no gain.
Of course, there will be wild swings even when you have this slight edge but playing with an edge is always better than playing without an edge.
Many players who make pass line bets can’t afford to take any odds or full odds behind the bet once the number is established. You can place the odds if the person allows you. The casino has no edge on the odds and in the long run, your expectation is to break even. Note: make sure the person behind whose bet you’re taking odds fully understands what it is you are doing. You don’t want to win a bet only to have the man or woman scoop it up and keep it.
3. Don’t Pass with odds - Don’t Come with odds
Always put the least allowed on the don’t pass or the don’t come and the most in odds behind it. The house will have a 1.403 percent edge on the don’t pass and don’t come bets but no edge on the odds bets.
4. Pass with odds - Come with odds
The same advice applies to this bet which comes in with a 1.414 percent edge on the pass line and the come but no edge on the odds portion of the bets.
5. Place the Six or Eight to win
In multiples of six dollars, placing the six or eight is the only worthwhile place-to-win bet on the table as the casino has a rather reasonable 1.52 percent edge. You’ll be paid seven dollars for your six-dollar bet when the number hits.
6. Place the six or eight to lose
You place five dollars on the table and say: “Six (or eight) to lose.” If the seven shows, you win four dollars. The house edge is 1.82 percent.
Place $41 dollars on the table and say: “Lay against the four (or 10).” If you win, you get $20. The house edge is 2.44 percent.
8. Place the five or nine to lose
You throw down eight dollars and place the above numbers to lose. If the seven shows, you win five dollars. The house edge is 2.5 percent.
9. Buy the four or 10 for $35 or $39 (paying one-dollar commission)
Normally the placing of the four or 10 has a hefty house edge of 6.67 percent which makes it one of the worst bets on the craps table. However, the casino usually lets you “buy9rdquo; the number by paying a one-dollar commission if you are betting $20 or $25.
I have bought the four and 10 for $35, paying that one dollar commission, which reduces the house edge to 2.78 percent, and also been able to buy the four for $39 dollars for the same one dollar commission. This latter bet reduces the house edge to 2.5 percent.
It still isn’t a good bet but it’s a heck of a lot better than just placing it. Of course, you have to be able to afford it. Some casinos allow you to buy the four and only pay the commission if it wins. This is another wonderful way to reduce the house edge on an otherwise bad bet.
Some casinos now allow the buying of the four or 10 and only paying the commission if you win. This reduces the house edge to around 1.3 percent -- a very good bet.
10. The Field (if it pays triple on either the 2 or 12)
Usually the Field is not a good bet, but when the 2 or 12 is returning three to one, instead of the usual two to one, the house edge drops to 2.78 percent.

A good strategy in craps is to start with a pass line bet. Once you have established a point number then take the maximum odds on that number. ie the maximum pass line odds. This will ensure you can paid at a better rate.
Say we place a passline bet of $5 and roll a 5. We can now take odds of 4 times that amount on most tables. ie we can take odds on the number 5 for a further $20.
If we didn’t take odds and a 5 hits, we make a $5 profit (ie a return on investment of 100%)
If we take just $10 on the odds and a 5 hits, we make a profit of $5 + $15 = $20, which is a return on investment of 133%)
If we take the full $20 on the odds and a 5 hits, we make a profit of $5 + $30 = $35, which is a return on investment of 140%)
On very rare occasions you might see such craziness as 100 times the odds being offered. Again exactly the same would apply, and you would get a return of $755 on a $505 bet or a return on investment of 149.5%.
The chance of a 5 hitting before a 7 is always the same, so really we want the maximum percentage return on our bet if it does hit. ie we want to take the maximum odds
The true odds of a 5 coming before a 7 is 3:2. ie there are 6 ways of making a 7, and 4 ways of making a 5. 6:4 is the same as 3:2. If we equate that to the expected ROI% it would be 150%. And as you can see the higher the odds taken, the closer it converges towards this 150%.
On the next roll of the nice you should make a Come bet. Once a number gets established via the Come you should take the full odds on that. Again this is for the same reason as our example above.
And then we should repeat that again to establish a 2nd number via the Come. This will give us 3 numbers in total. Lets say they were 8 on the come out roll (the true point number), and 5 and 9 on the Come bets (the pseudo point numbers).
This puts us in the situation of winning on 5,8 and 9. Nothing happening on 2,3,4,6,10,11, and 12. And losing on 7.
Stopping at 3 numbers is recommended because a 7 is going to be rolled once every 6 times on average, so you want to minimise you losses when the dice is unkind to you.
If you hit the 5,8, or 9, the number you hit gets paid off and cleared so it is good to re-establish 3 numbers again (all with max odds) either via the pass line or the come box (depending which number was cleared).
After that you might want to consider not recharging the numbers, as a seven has to appear eventually.
If we manage to get say get 5,8,9 cleared, establishing replacements of 4,5,10 as we go, which also get cleared. And then keep playing a single number (say 6), hitting it once, and then losing, our outcome would be like this:
- Hit the 5 = $35 profit
- Hit the 8 = $35 profit
- Hit the 9 = $35 profit
- Hit the 4 = $35 profit
- Hit the 5 = $35 profit
- Hit the 10 = $35 profit
- Hit the 6 = $35 profit
- Hit the 7 = $30 loss
- Total profit = $215
So by throwing and avoiding the 7 for a while, whilst occasionally hitting our numbers, we can making a nice profit in this scenario.
We want to make enough profit by hitting numbers to more than cover the loss when a 7 hits. So hence sometimes gradually reducing your chips active on the board as the hand goes on is a good approach to leave a very minimal exit loss ($30 in our example).
Another good way to get more numbers in action after the initial point number is established is to make some direct place bets. This is good to get numbers in action straight away. Lets place the same dice rolls out as before, just with the numbers bet via place bets:
The payments calculation are slightly different here between Pass line and Place bet, but the outcome is very similar. Lets say that the 9, 10, and 6 were our points numbers. If we bet an equivalent amount (eg $30 directly on the 8 instead of $5 on the Come and $25 odds) then it would actually come out to a $216 profit. Also identical. The difference coming from the 4 being paid 9-5, turning $20 into $36. Whereas via the Come box we get $5 at evens plus $15 (the odds) at 2/1 for a total of $5+$30 = $35.
You might conclude that Place bets were better on both fronts (both being direct, and financially) but actually Come bets work out the best overall because you get some free equity from the first stage of the Come bet (ie 7,11 are winners (8 chances), and 2,3,12 are losers (4 chances)).
Whatever your preference Place Bets and Come Bets are both good Craps bets.
Another approach is the (artificial) perception that immediately after a 7, another 7 is less likely. If you like this viewpoint you could simply wait for a 7, then bet directly on 5,6,8,9.
This would play out as follows if $10 was bet on each number:
- Hit all 4 numbers before a 7 = $14+$11.66+$11.66+$14 = $51.32 profit
- Hit 3 numbers before a 7 (say 5,6,8) = $14+$11.66+$11.66-$10 = $27.32 profit
- Hit 2 numbers before a 7 (say 5,6) = $14+$11.66-$20 = $5.66 profit
- Hit 1 number before a 7 (say 5) = $14-$30 = $16 loss
- 7 gets rolled immediately again = $40 loss
When playing live you may hear this strategy being called “22 inside”. This signifies the total bet of $22 (a $5 on 5 and 9, and $6 on 6 and – this is because of the rounding factor in live craps where betting $5 or $10 on a 6 or 8 will not lead to a whole dollar amount returned.
There are many different craps strategies, and it is down really to the individual which they find most enjoyable. Our main advice would be to, in some shape or form, concentrate on Pass Line Bets, Come Bets, and Place Bets. A lot of the other bets pay significantly worse odds.
Specific Craps Betting Strategies
Below we will talk a little more in depth about some specific craps strategies that you may wish to give a go.
Regression Strategies are a good, often simply and effective, way to play Craps. They involve locking up profits by reducing bets after a win. So you keep money in action but you also get money off the table quickly/safely. A good example of this is as follows:
Regress half on 6 and 8.
Make a place bet of $12 on the 6 and $12 on the 8
If one of them hits before a 7, you will be paid $14. Then reduce the two bets down to $6 on each number. So at this point you have taken $14+$12=$26 from the table and you are $2 up. If 6 or 8 hit again before a seven then get paid and clear both bets. ie you will get $7+$6+$6 = $19.
Overall you profited $26+$19-$24 = $21.
You can extend this strategy into a triple regression, starting with $36. You first bet $18 on 6 and $18 on 8. After a win you regress to $12 and $12, and after a second win you regress to $6 and $6, and you then clear the board.
Overall on a successful run you will profit $21+$12+$14+$12+$7+$12-$36 = $42
Readers may be familiar with the Martingale system from roulette, which involves betting increased amounts on even money bets until you win. Well we can do exactly the same thing in craps.
Once a point is established, we start by betting $5 on the field (2,3,4,9,10,11,12). If it wins, great, we wait until after another come out roll and start again at $5. If we lose again we wait, but next time we bet $10. And so on upwards (after losing bets), doubling each time.
It is best to set a cap at $155 (ie $5 + $10 + $20 + $40 + $80).
- Chances of us hitting a field number on any give throw is 16/36 = 0.4444
- Chances of us not hitting one on throw ($5 level) = 0.5555
- Chances of us not hitting one in 2 throws ($10 level) = 0.3086
- Chances us us not hitting one in 3 throws ($20 level) = 0.1714
- Chances us us not hitting one in 4 throws ($40 level) = 0.0952
- Chances us us not hitting one in 5 throws ($80 level) = 0.0529.
So we go looking to make a quick $5, we are 95% likely we will be successful.
Obviously this does carry risk, so set a strict limit beforehand of how far you will go up to.
$119 profit from a $12 bet, locking profits after 1 successful roll.
Bet $12 on the 6 or the 8 (just one of them). After it hits, regress it to $6. You have now locked a $8 profit and you can relax. Continuing on the 6 or 8, if it hits a second time, increase it back to $12, taking the $1 remainder from the table. Then if successful double it up for 2 further hits of your chosen number (6 or 8), and then remove all bets.
The progression would look like this
- $12 – paid $14 (regress to $6)
- $6 – paid $7 (remove $1)
- $12 – paid $14 (remove $2)
- $24 – paid $28 (remove $4)
- $48 – paid $56 (remove all)
If successful you will profit $14+$6+$1+$2+$4+$104-$12 = $119. If you hit the number first just one time, you are guaranteed a $8 profit (then subsequently increased to $9, then to $11, and then to $15). If 7 comes first in the first hand you lose $12.
In summary, you first look to lock a quick 1 hit profit. Then you parlay what is left hoping for a hot shooter, with an aim of reaching $119 and then removing bets.
A bit of fun if nothing else. If the shooter hits a few of your number, you can start to smell that $119.
Start off with a passline bet, and keep playing the pass line until a Point number is established. Now don’t take the odds on the passline, but instead just bet the Come box. Once a number is established via the come, now take the full odds on both the pass line bet and the Come number bet. Keep rolling until you hit the Point number, or seven out. Take the Come bet number down afterwards (if it hasn’t already been hit along the way).
This strategy has the benefit of protecting the passline bet until 2 numbers are established with odds. This happens because if a seven is rolled you lose the passline bet but win the Come box bet.
If successful (hitting both), off of a $5 base bet with 3x/4x/5x odds, you will profit $70. If you hit just the Point (not the Come number) you will profit $35.
With this craps strategy you are betting against the shooter, or more specifically against the Point being made.
Start by betting $30 on the Don’t Pass line. If/when a point number is established you have cleared your first hurdle of avoiding sevens and elevens on the come out roll.
Now make place bets on the inside numbers, minus the point number. In other words bet $10 on 5, $12 on 6, $12 on 8, and $10 on 9. But if any of those numbers are the point number don’t bet it.
If you hit 3 of your place numbers (when you have bet four), then take the rest of the bet down.
The result is:
- If any of your place bet numbers come up before a 7 you will make a profit (or more accurately, you will not make a loss).
- If a 2 or 3 of your place numbers come up before a 7 you will make a good profit.
- If a seven comes up before anything you will make a loss of between $2 and $14
- If a point number comes up before you hit anything, you will lose $30
- If 3 of your numbers come up before the point number, you will make a profit
Example. Lets say the point number is the 5.
If the shooter hits a 6 and then a 7, you will win $14 on the 6, and then $30 on the 7. And you will lose $12 from the 8, and $10 from the 9. This is a net profit of $22.
If the shooter hits an 8, then a 9, then a 7, you will win $14 + $14 + $30. And you will lose $12 (from the 6). Net profit would be $46.
Best Craps Strategy and How to Win At Craps
It’s no hidden secret that the house always wins in casino games. This is the only way the casino can make enough money to pay their costs including staff, operations and maintenance etc. But in Craps in particular, the house edge can be very high compared to other games. The % of winning at Craps can be improved if you know the best way to play craps.
Some craps bets for instance can have up to a 14% edge. This means if you play craps recklessly in a casino, without learning any craps strategy and how to win at craps, you’ll lose a lot of money in a short space of time.
By reading up our Craps strategy, before you play online craps or live craps, you’ll minimise your losses (and maximise your chance to winning at craps) by sticking to profitable bets with a low house edge. You can avoid the costly bets that only suckers make, and in the long term you’ll increase your expected value from the game. You can also check out the various Craps betting systems which have been published online and used a lot by craps players. So let’s read and learn how to win at craps.
Craps Strategy : Best Craps Bets
The best bets to place, whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned pro, are the Pass Line bet and Don’t Pass Line bets. These bets are similar to Blackjack and roulette in that you basically have a 50/50 chance of doubling up and the house only has a 1.41% advantage.
“Betting Against the Line” means you are betting against the run of play. These odds are actually slightly better than Pass Line bet as the house only has a 1.40% edge. You win by laying the person rolling and hoping that he hits a 7 before his Point. Be careful when placing this bet however, because it tends to mean you are betting against everyone else at the table i.e. when you win they lose.
The second range of optimal betting includes place 6, place 8, buy 4 and buy 10. Buying the 4 and 10 is cheaper than placing them. Just remember that placing the other numbers is cheaper than buying them.
The Crapspit’s Preferred Craps Strategy for Playing Craps
Here at the Crapspit , we encourage our readers to share their craps-playing stories, including their favorite systems and strategies for playing the game . We thought we’d add our preferred system to the list, too. Enjoy!
We assume you’ve read and understand our other articles about what “ craps systems ” are and the validity of them, as well as our articles on craps basics and what to expect from the game in terms of winning and losing (e.g., our articles about distribution variance and other articles that explain how craps is designed for us to lose). Our preferred craps system, or craps strategy, is reflected in three of our articles (we suggest that you read them in the sequence listed below):
With the first article, we explain our favorite craps strategy . It’s important to understand that our primary goal is not to win a million dollars. Our primary fundamental goal is to minimize our losses so we can play longer sessions (this assumes we’re not already rich with an unlimited budget). If we can extend our playing sessions, we increase our chances of being around when the distribution variance produces the infrequent hot roll. Although winning a million dollars is desired, it’s merely a consequence of achieving our fundamental goal (i.e., if we can make our craps budget last longer, then we have a better chance of being at the table when the hot roll hits, which we can then take advantage of and rake in gobs of money). So, remember, our goal is to minimize our losses and be able to stay at the table as long as we can to hopefully hit a hot roll. Also remember that we’re not going to win every session and some sessions are going to be short-lived. You must accept that fact; otherwise, you should not play craps .
The fact is, the best strategy for playing craps is to keep the house advantage as low as possible. That’s done by playing the Don’t Pass and laying odds or the Pass Line and taking odds. That’s it. Nothing more. No other craps bets . No wacky betting patterns with different bet combinations for different situations and rules for taking bets down after a certain number of rolls. If you want to give the house the least amount of advantage, then the only way to play is straight Don’t Pass or Pass Line with odds. Nothing else. Although playing nothing but the Don’t Pass or Pass Line keeps the house advantage at its lowest, they can get boring quickly. We play craps for the fun and excitement it can provide, so to avoid the tedious nature of the Don’t Pass and Pass Line, we add a secondary goal in hopes of obtaining that fun and excitement. How we achieve our secondary goal is explained in our preferred system, How to Bet to Minimize Losses and Be Around for the Hot Roll .
Our preferred strategy goes a step further than almost every craps system explained on the Internet. We talk about what to do when the dice don’t cooperate with the rules of our system. That is, we talk about how to adapt to a cold table , and when that doesn’t work, we discuss the importance of calling it quits for the day.
We welcome comments and questions about our preferred strategy. So, please enjoy the material. And don’t forget to browse our entire site for more material that we believe will help make you a tough, solid-rock craps player who the casino fears.
Craps betting strategy you’ll wish you knew sooner
For an ideal craps technique, the best wagers you can make are Pass/Don’t Pass and Come/Don’t Come. On the off chance that you stick to them, the house will just have leverage of around 1.40%, and on the off chance that you lay or take chances this decreases the house edge significantly further. Aside from the Pass line and Come wagers, the Place 6, Place 8 and every so often Field 2 or 12 are the following wagers down the line that offer you the best chances and odds of winning cash.
Whatever is left of the bets offered on the craps format offer more regrettable conditions for you. Some of them are incredibly awful.

Practically the same as the Pass line wager, yet it is made any time after the point number has just been made. You win if the shooter rolls a 7 or 11 after the come wager is made, and if the shooter rolls a 2,3,12 you lose the wager. With some other number your own particular point number is made, which is separate from the pass line wager point number. There are a greater number of opportunities to win here than to lose influencing this a standout amongst the most ideal wagers you can make.
Wagering the wrong way is right

You can win with the wagers, Big 6 and Big 8 on the off chance that the shooter individually moves numbers 6 and 8 before a 7.

Tips to reduce chances of losing playing craps
The following tips to reduce the chances of losing when we play dice are based on a strategy called “Calculation of low fees”. Of course, there are many other tactics but, on this occasion, we will refer to this, as we consider it quite accurate from the point of view of statistics. It will be necessary, then:
We must determine the number of favorable outcomes in each situation
Suppose we are going to bet on throwing a single die. In such case, we bet on the number in which we consider that the die will be dropped once it is released. Suppose, furthermore (within the same hypothetical situation), that we bet on a 1 or a 2. In this case, there are two possibilities for winners, that is: if the die falls by 2, we win and, if it falls in 1, too. Therefore, we have two possible favorable results.
However, there is another perspective from which we can analyze the same situation. It is possible to see the situation as a total number of possible outcomes, minus the number of favorable outcomes. Then, when casting a dice, the total number of possible outcomes is equal to six, one for each die. To return to the example, we have to subtract two (the number of favorable results, let us remember) of six, thus: 6 – 2 = 4, which is the number of unfavorable results.
In addition, we could subtract the number of unfavorable results from the number of possible outcomes, in order to find the number of favorable outcomes.
It is very important to express quotas in a numerical way
Usually, quotas are expressed as “the ratio of favorable results to unfavorable results”, normally using two points. Returning to the example we were drawing, the odds for our probability of success are 2: 4, that is, two chances to win against four chances of losing. Then, if we proceed to divide both terms by the common multiple of two, it is possible to simplify as a normal fraction of 1:2, a relation that can be defined as a “quota of 2 to 1”.
In the same order of ideas, we can represent this relation in the manner of a fraction which, for the example at hand, expresses 2/4 which can be simplified as 1/2. Thus, a ½ share does not mean that we have half or 50% chance of winning because, in fact, the probability of success is 33.33 or, what is the same, 1/3. We must remember that quotas are the ratio of favorable to unfavorable results and not a numerical measure of the odds we have to win.
Let us determine the number of unfavorable results
It turns out that in gambling, the possibility of losing is always present. If we bet that we are going to draw a 1 or a 2, it means that, we will lose if we get a 3, a 4, a 5 or a 6. In view of that we can lose when taking any of these last four numbers, we have that there are four results unfavorable.
How to win at craps and place your best craps bets
Dice – this is exactly the game in which everything, absolutely everything depends on your luck!
Both from the player and the dealer, there is no way to determine or influence the outcome of the game. CrapsStrategy.org warns: do not let anyone dissuade you in this! Better read this article carefully, and, quite possibly, bones, will become your favorite gambling entertainment. We will tell you about a strategy that gives an advantage over those players who think they cannot do anything and cross their fingers behind their backs, spit over their shoulders, cross themselves and play blindly.
Basic craps strategy is… well, basic. The best thing you can do when playing dice is to keep discipline. All the best dice players follow this rule. In the bones, you must take for yourself two limitations. It comes down to how much you are willing to lose and how much you want to win. Of course, you want to win as much as possible. Every player wants this. The fact is that your luck can change you very quickly. You should not continue only because you are in a band of luck. Never be greedy. Set a win or loss limit of 20%. Your decision on how much to put depends on the thickness of your wallet. You should be doubly careful when gambling on credit because if you lose, you will have to pay back money and the fact that you are playing on credit may mean that you will not have the money to pay it.
Use the money management system
Setting up a sound money management system is also a good way to save yourself. Remember that the sense of the basic craps strategy of the game is not so much to gain as to protect yourself from losses. For example, Martingale’s methods and doubling are very good for money management, but you must have a spare and another system that works just as well. You need to work with the system with which you feel comfortable. You must adhere to the limits that you set for yourself, as it instills discipline.
When you start playing, you should not allow your best craps bets to exceed 1/20 of what you have. If you want the game to last a little longer, you can limit even one-fifth of your capital. This is also a safe way to play. For example, in dice at $ 5, you must have an amount equal to $ 200. This not only gives you the chance to finish the game in the black, even if you started badly, but also reduces the likelihood of releasing everything and too quickly.
Basic craps strategy draws your attention to the fact that best craps bets are, first of all, knowledge and understanding of the principles of rates in a game of chance. Remember that in most games, there are only a small number of bets in which the casino advantage is small. Some of them are available to you in the bones, and you should use your abilities to the maximum.
More experienced players in the dice try to stick to current rates or a line of past bets, since their odds are already formed. You will also notice that these players make their best craps bets mostly on 6 and 8. This basic craps strategy does not guarantee a big win in a short time, but you will leave the game with a smile on your face if you show patience.
More complex rates require that you insure them. This is a classic catch-22, because the bet insurance allows you to exercise more control over the game, and payments in this case are similar to other betting options.
We don’t want to sound banal, but a lot of players are nervous when things are not going according to a pre-planned scheme. It is impossible to conduct a coherent and coherent game when you are in a state of nervous tension. When you lose money in an attempt to recoup, the scenario of the next game may look deplorable. If you are in a state of nervous tension, then most likely, you make the wrong decision. If you are not sure whether you like bones or not, play first in the free version (many online casinos offer a free version of the game). Feel and feel the dice. You should be completely sure that the game you like and you do not feel fear of the risk of losing money.

Often the number of participants in the gameplay could reach 20, however, not in the virtual version. Here, the user does not have to wait for his turn, he plays alone with the dealer. When you first throw up the dice, you can bet on only certain fields. The appearance of the “ON” chips on the playing field will speak about the possibility of making an additional bet. This is very welcome in the game for real rubles with a casino from a special section.

You can feel what rates you will like and in the table game with the money offered by the casino from the table above, despite the apparent “confusion” in Craps it is easy to understand, you just need to start playing.
Craps strategies: basic rules and rates
Originating in America (presumably at the end of the 18th century in New Orleans), the table craps casino craps quite soon crossed the ocean and gained popularity first in Europe and later in the world. Until now, interest in this game has not died out.
Almost every casino will offer you this exciting and dynamic game and suggest few ways how to win at craps. And, there are a lot of options for this game in the dice, so it’s important to read the rules and game conditions for each version. But there are general rules, craps strategies, stakes, goals and conditions for playing craps for all options. This is the subject of the article.
- The number of players is unlimited.
- The number of dices is two for a throw.
- The number of stages – from one to two (the game develops depending on the loss on the dices of this or that combination – the sum of numbers).
Beginners are quite difficult to get into the rules right away, because the noisy atmosphere around craps tables – roaring, squealing, laughing – does not give focus. But craps are not created for the concentrated and closed people. This is a bright and open game. Yes, and its pace is fast enough, not comparable to elegant roulette or playing cards, where an open expression of emotion is not welcome. Craps, on the other hand, has unfamiliar people to communicate: they begin to “root” for the thrower, vigorously rejoicing in the rolls that make you win at craps . Do not lag the players and spectators’ dealer, the leading game (stikmen). For him, even there are certain “chants” that accompany the process of the game. Perhaps, Stickman – the noisiest dealer in the casino. If you happen to visit a land-based casino and play craps, perhaps you even pay attention to the manner very quickly (patter) to pronounce these phrases.
But, at first glance, the seeming complexity of playing and craps strategies (a variety of bets, English terminology, intricate table layout, constant throws, bustle with chips, leapfrog with bets) will not be so repulsive if you first study the canvas of the game, the general rules in craps and understand its essence.
Game field craps (English Craps) in the online casino software Playtech.
To play in craps, you need a large special game table of elongated shape with rounded corners. At the mini-table for craps, twelve people can play simultaneously, but there are also standard tables, where twice as many players can participate in the game.
The edges of the sides of the table are high so that the dices do not fall out when they are thrown. The inner boards (except for the box for casino chips) are trimmed with a special ribbed material of rubber, so that the dices bounce off and at the same time are not damaged and do not fly over the sides. In the edges of the sides, from the side of the table where the players are standing, special grooves are made with sectors where the players can put their chips.
The game field of the craps table is covered with a cloth and marked with betting sectors. The betting field on the game table is divided into three parts: two symmetrical base fields along the edges, and there is one more in between.
The central field is the field for bets on one throw arrow. Often in the markup of this field, there are dices in the form of dots (indices), and not just numbers. Bets on this field accepts and exposes only stickman.
Base fields or base – fields for bets on the line. Casino rules allow players to independently bet on this field.
Special markers – On / Off – for playing craps.
Dice in craps are hexagonal dices with straight angles. Dices for craps in the casino are large – with facets 1,9-2 cm – made of acrylic. They are polished to achieve the ideal face surface and transparency of the cube. On each face, indices (dots) are marked, denoting numbers from 1 to 6. The indices during drilling are drilled and poured with the same acrylic, but of a different color. This achieves an accurate balancing of the cube. On the table beside the stickman there is a set of 5 dices and a bowl for them, which has its name – a boat. By stick, he pushes the dice to the arrow player so that he chooses two of five for the throw.
Pax (English Pucks) – game markers. These are two large black and white plastic washers with a diameter of about 5 cm with the inscriptions ON on one side and OFF on the other. Depending on the situation in the game, dealers put them on the playing field with the right side to show whether the bet is working or not. Sometimes these pucks are called Point. If the washer on the number is ON on top, it means that this number is point, and that it “plays” in the second stage. The inscription OFF means “offside”. With this side, the marker is placed in the corner of the table onto the sector DO NOT COME BAR, at the end of the shots on the point.
The course of the game in craps: how to win at craps
As already mentioned above, in the craps of the stickman on the table is a set of five dices. Before the throw is made, the stickman moves all five dices stick to the arrow so that he selects two for the throw.
Roll or Roll (English Roll) – the main action in the game in craps. Throws only the shooter, one hand – the one that was taken from the dices from the table. Dices cannot be shifted from hand to hand. A throw is considered complete if at least one bone of two hits the opposite side of the arrow, and both dices remain on the table.
Set Point – put the marker on the Point number on the Across Line line. This action is performed by dealers on the base fields before the starts of the shots in the second stage of the game.
Before making bets in craps, players must exchange money for chips from the boxman at the gaming table.
Exchange of money for casino chips
Before you join the game (make bets), you need to exchange money for casino chips. Usually this happens at the craps table. Money for chips changes boxman at any time between rolls of dices. Having received the chips, the player can hold them in their hands, or put them next to themselves on the table (but not on the layout of the field) or put in special grooves for chips that are located on the sides of the table. The latter option is preferable.
Unlike roulette, where the advantage of the casino at all rates is the same (except for betting on equal chances with the rule of “prison”), in crap the advantage of the casino at different rates is significantly different. The player is important to know and understand where it is desirable or not desirable to bet. And to begin with, find out what the basic crap rates are, how to place a bet, and, most importantly, at what point in the game.
Gambling, where one of the attributes of the game are the dices, and the main action – a roll of dices, in the world there is a lot. Dice games abound in various variations. But it is customary to single out individual dice games in groups when there are general rules for them, subject to a single principle. Craps is such a group. Once upon a time, maybe there was only one version of this game. But the popularity of craps has spawned a variety of options, where the basic rules of this game of dice are complemented by special ones and craps strategies are constantly changing.
In the US, craps is one of the most popular and favorite games in the casino. The most popular options for craps in this country are private craps and bank craps.
That’s it for the craps strategies. Easy, right? Time for you to win at craps!
