Craps is a game of chance where wins and losses are determined by a roll of 2 dice. The game cannot be affected in any way and the days of loading dice do not exist due to strict controls in live casinos. Online casinos use a graphic representation of dice with the outcome of the roll being determined by the Random Number Generator. Although craps is a game of chance there is still a strategy that can be applied to the way players bet that can decrees the casino’s edge and provide the player with better odds.
Craps offers many different types of bets that are available to players at different stages of the rolling round. Some of these bets offer a low house edge and are considered smart bets and others are known as sucker bets. Players who stick to the smart bets will stand a better chance at having a real good time playing craps and winning a majority of their bets.
The smart bets are Pass Line Bet, Don’t Pass Line Bet, Come Bets and Don’t Come Bets. These bets tend to offer even money but offer a better chance of winning. Sucker bets include bets that offer much higher payouts that they draw players who do not understand the rules of probability. Most of the Single Roll bets are considered sucker bets as the chances of hitting them on a particular roll are so slim.
Multi Roll Bets and the standard Pass/Don’t Pass and Come/Don’t Come bets offer lower odds but a higher chance of winning. Stick to these bets and don’t do anything foolish. If you want to bet a specific number because it’s your birthday you are better off doing so at the Roulette table than the craps table.
