Craps is a high-energy, fast-paced game in online casinos . It’s also an in-depth one, requiring considerable study, when it comes to developing a winning strategy. There are several things you can do to develop this winning craps strategy and put the odds more in your favor.

First, you need to remember the best bets. Most experts agree that a Pass Bet will give a 1.41% edge to the house. Betting on a Don’t Pass improves things for you slightly, with just a 1.40% edge for the house. These should be your two primary bets. Most winners keep them at the heart of their strategy, since all other bets give the house too great of odds. For instance, a bet on the Field gives the bank 5.6% odds.

Also, remember that Come and Don’t Come bets have the same odds as Pass and Don’t Pass. The only difference is the timing of when the bets are made. There are still other ways of improving the best in Craps. You can do this, for starters, by Laying Odds if you play wrong or Buying Odds if you play right. You place these in addition to the initial wager, following the Come-out roll. These improve the initial bet because the house does not take an edge on Odds.  As a result, you’re betting only against straight dice.

You make an Odds bet by supplementing the original Pass or Don’t Pass bet by an extra amount once you’ve survived the come out roll. You place the bets beside your initial bet, on the same Pass / Don’t Pass line. If you play right and you Buy Odds, you’ll supplement a Pass bet; then if you win, your winnings will be based on the Point. Let’s assume you had a Pass Bet of $5.  If you buy Double Odds (or $10), this would be the payout:

A 4 or 10 would pay 2 to 1 for a win of $30 ($20)

A 5 or 9 would pay 3 to 2 for a win of $25 (15)

A 6 or 8 would pay 6 to 5 for a win of $22 ($12).

On the other hand, assuming the same $5 bet, if you Lay Odds you will supplement a Don’t Pass wager and win according to the following schedule:

A 4 or 10 would pay 2 to 1 for a win of $15 ($5)

A 5 or 9 would pay 3 to 2 for a win of $16 ($6)

A 6 or 8 would pay 6 to 5 for a win of $18 ($8).

A 5 or 9 would pay 3 to 2 for a win of $

In the above example, a wrong bet of $5 on the initial roll of 10 yields a win of $25: your initial $5 bet plus its $5 win, your $10 odds bet plus its $5 win.Another trick that should help you: Most casinos pay in nothing less than a $1 bill. Any fraction of a dollar that you might have coming, you lose. 

Because of the 3to 2 and 6 to 5 Odds you’re laying, you’ll lose fractions of a dollar each time since $10 is not evenly divisible by 3 or 6.  So instead of placing a wrong bet of $5, place a wrong bet of $6, betting full on Double Odds for an evenly-divisible multiple of $12.  Since all wins will be in multiples of 12, when you win, you’ll lose no fractions of a dollar.
