Craps is a thrilling dice game that is one of the main attractions at both land-based casinos and online casinos around the world. Once you have figured out how to place a bet and learned the rules, this game can be thoroughly entertaining and can be played by players with all types of budgets.
For those who are new to this game, Craps can seem a little daunting. The main reason for this is because of the complex looking betting table which is full of words and numbers that can seem quite complicated. Once you have signed up to an online casino and launched this game, you will be able to view the rules and usually be able to play in the practice/free play mode before you start playing with your own hard-earned cash, which is a very good idea. This is an ideal way to learn about the different types of bets and you will also be able to pick up useful tips, hints and other helpful pieces of information. You will be playing against the house and the idea is to place a bet on what you think the outcome of the two dice will reveal once they have been rolled/thrown. As soon as the dice have stopped moving, all winning bets are then instantly paid out to the player. There are basically two different main types of betting with this game. Players can either place a wager to predict a series of outcomes or they can place a wager on the immediate outcome of the dice.
Players have the option of betting on certain numbers not coming out for a certain amount of separate throws or they can put their money on a precise number being thrown in the very next game.
Players who are running low on funds are advised to place their bets on the Come/Don’t Come bets or the Pass/Don’t Pass bets. If you feel as though you are experiencing a losing streak, either close the game or just start betting low until this streak passes and when you think that you are on a winning streak start betting big again.
The following types of bets are available in Craps. Starting with seven, this pays odds of 4:1 and is a one-roll wager. Players can also bet on eleven and the house will normally pay you odds of 14:1 when in fact the odds are 17:1. Then you have Place Bets. If you bet on any 6’s or 8’s and win, you will be paid 7:6. If you bet on 5’s or 9’s, you will be paid 7:5 and any 4’s or 10’s will pay 9:5.
It’s only worth placing a Buy Bet on 10’s and 4’s, as this can bring down the house edge by up to 4.76%. There are also other bets such as the Field, Any Craps, the Horn Bet, Hard Ways and Big 6 and 8. An experienced player will reassure you that learning these wins really doesn’t take that long and that the game is easier to pick up than you may think.
