How To Play Craps

Dec 8, 2007
Start to play games of craps and you will understand why I believe it is a great game to play. Craps gives you the best odds of winning in a casino, besides poker. Not only does craps give you the best shot of winning it also lets you reduce the casino's edge significantly. Craps is a great way to win big money in a short period. Yes you can use slot machines but the odds are so stacked against you it is not even worth it. In blackjack the dealers reshuffle the decks frequently so you cannot really count cards. In roulette the odds are completely in the casino's favor. Play games of craps at casinos and you will have a good shot of walking out with a win.

The key to playing craps is having discipline. Craps is a game of streaks. You must learn to load up on the hot streaks and survive the cold streaks. With craps you are looking for the hot hand. Once you find the hot hand or streak it is time to place larger amounts of money. There are many different strategies for determining streaks. Find a strategy that works best for you and use it.

You should keep notes on each time you play and track your performance. Remember craps is a game of streaks and chasing your bets will most likely result in more losses. A win is a win period, even if you only walked away with 20 bucks.

A couple of bets you should stay away from are "hardaways", "elevens", and "any craps". These bets are stacked against you. These bets are sucker bets used by the casinos for players who do not know any better. Hardaways are numbers that can made in pairs. For instance, 4,6,8 and 10. You win if the dice hit your numbers in a pair. For instance 2-2 for the 4 or 5-5 for the 10 and so on. You win with "elevens" when the dice roll an 11, if it rolls anything else you lose. With "any craps" you win when the dice roll craps: 2,3 or 12. You lose if the dice hit any other number.

Playing craps is a great way to win at casinos and is actually a very simple game to learn. Many people get intimidated because of the large crap tables with all of the numbers on them. Do not let this discourage you. Play games of craps online for free to get a better understanding of the game.
