While playing craps and rolling the dice at the casino you always look forward to a safe system of play. You want to stand at the low risk of betting and losing. Here are the 11 such best systems to follow which are safe way to follow while playing the game of Craps. Though there is no sure bet in punting in this game but to understand these safe strategy is also not bad.
1. Bet with No 4 or No 10
You can make this bet and take it down at anytime. You can bet both the 4 and 10 at the same time. What you are doing is laying the odds ( say $40 ) that a 7 will be thrown before a 4 or 10. This is one of the better bets you can make. Notice on the table that there isn’t any wording about this bet, unlike the large lettered field and come. It’s so advantageous to the player that the casino charges you a 5% vig on the amount of money you’ll win.
Simply say to the dealer that you want a No 4 for $40. You put down $41 ( 5% on a $20 win is $1 ) and the dealer will put your money in the don’t come box above the 4. Now you hope a 7 is thrown before a 4. A win will pay $20. You can take the No 4 bet of $40 down or pay another dollar and leave it up.
Most shooters will 7 out after 4 rolls and it is less likely that they will throw a second 4 or 10 before a 7. This bet can be hedged with a bet on the hard 4 or 10. The downside to this bet is that you are risking twice as much money as you’ll win. With this system of a 4 or 10 coming up before a 7 is a bankroll killer. This method is good on a choppy or cold table.
2. Pass with 2 come bets
This is another method of play where you make a pass line bet and take 2x odds. When a point is established you place a bet in the come box. If a number ( say 5 ) is thrown, this becomes your come bet number and your bet is placed in the 5 box. Now you can take 2x odds. You make another bet on the come. Say a 8 is thrown. Your money is placed in the 8 box and you take 2x odds. Now you have 3 numbers covered. If you win one of your come bets, you are paid and you would then make another bet in the come.
What you are trying to do is to have 3 numbers working for you at all times. You can take advantage of a of hot roll betting like this. When you are on a hot table, you can make an extra come bet for every point the shooter makes till you have all the numbers covered.
The downside is if a 7 is thrown early or if a 7 is thrown before you win any of your bets. This method is good to start play at a table. It can also be used on a hot table. After every point a shooter makes, you increase your come bet by one unit.
3. Place bets on the 6 and 8
These are the two best numbers to place bet. There are five ways to make a 6 and five ways to make an 8. That’s 10 ways to make either number. A 7 can be made in six ways. You can place bet a number that is also the point. A place bet can be taken down or made off at anytime. A place bet on either number pays 6 to 5.
All you have to do is have either or the same number hit twice before a 7 and you’ll show a profit. Downside here is an early 7 or no 6 or 8 being thrown before a 7. This method is good to start play at a table and good for a choppy table. It can also be used on a hot table. You have to press your bet after every other hit for the life of the roll.
4. Bet with 6 and 8 regression
Using this method you can make a profit with just one hit. You place bet the 6 and 8 for $12 each. You have a hit on either number and you reduce your bets to $6 each. You have a $2 profit and you can’t get hurt by the 7. You can leave the bets up for another hit, then take them down or just leave them up for the life of the roll.
Another variation is to wait for a 7 to be thrown, then place the 6 and 8 for one hit. Downside is an early 7. This method is good to start play at a table and good for a choppy table. It can also be used on a hot table. You have to press your bet after every other hit for the life of the roll.
5. Bet with 6 and 8 regression 2
Chart the tables to find out which ones are producing 6’s and 8’s. You will only play at a table whereby at least 2 shooters have successfully shot 2 6’s or 8’s (any combinations) before they 7 out.
You skip the come out and youplace $18 on the 6 and 8. If a 6 or 8 hits you regress your 6 or 8 down to $6 each, and place either the 5 or 9 for $5. You collected $21 and now have $17 at risk with 3 numbers and a $4 profit!
After 3 hits you take everything down with a $42 profit. You will often throw $1 or $2 on a hardway while you are down to keep your interest in the game. Ifyou feel the shooter is on a hot roll you will alternate every other one with taking your winnings back (same bet) and pressing the bet(s) until the shooter 7 outs thus building up your place bets and wins at the casinos expense.
The worse thing that could hurt you is if a 7 comes out before the 6 or 8. If this happens 3 times in a row you are out charting another table. If you find yourself winning more than loosing up your $18 bets on the 6&8 to $24, $30 or sometimes $36. Sometimes it feels like a slow grind but you love the feeling you get when that first 6 or 8 shows up guaranteeing you a winner with that shooter.
6. Playing with Don’t Pass Bet
Though normally don’t bet the don’t pass until at least two shooters have sevened out in a row. When that happens you make a $10 don’t pass bet and you only lay full odds when the point is 4 or 10. If the table is really cold, you will lay the odds on the other point numbers and make a $5 hardway bet. For example: The point is 6 you will lay full odds and make a $5 hardway bet on the 6.
The downside is the table turning hot and the good of this bet for a cold table.
7. The Don’t come Bet
You will like to make this bet when there are only a few rolls before a seven or a point is made. If the don’t come is on the 4 or 10, you will lay full odds. If you have any don’t comes working on the come out, you lay full odds, hoping for a 7. When a point is established, you will remove the odds off all numbers except the 4 and 10. If the table is really cold, you will leave the odds on.
You make two don’t come bets when you feel that the table is choppy or cold. If the shooter hits on of your don’ts, you would make another. If the shooter hits another one of your don’ts, you would just sit out the shooter and make no more bets. For each shooter that sevens out you will make another don’t come bet. The downside of this is for many numbers being thrown otherwise good for a choppy or cold table.
8. Lay bets with don’t pass
You make a $40 don’t pass bet and lay bet the 4 and 10 for $40 each. Put $2 on the yo. You’ll lose $2 with a 7, you’ll lose $10 with a yo. 2 and 3 is a win, a 12 is a push. After a point is established, you take down the lay bets on the 4 and 10 and lay full odds on the don’t pass bet.
If a 4 or 10 becomes the point, you take down the other lay bet and lay full odds on the don’t pass bet. If the table is really cold, you can leave the lay bets on the 4 and 10 working. You can try to hedge your 4 and 10 with $5 on each hardway. The downside is the table turning hot but good for a cold table.
9. The Three hits
Do not make a pass/don’t pass bet. After a point is established, make a $18 bet on the 6 & 8. On the first hit ( $21 win) you would cut back your bets on the 6 & 8 to $6 each. ( You are now risking only $12.) On the second hit on the 6 or 8 you would place the 5 & 9 for $5 each. If a 5,6,8,9 is thrown you collect your winnings and take down your bets. Don’t make any more bets till the next point. Downside is a seven before your first 6 or 8 is hit but good for a choppy table.
10. The 7 Method
Suppose you place $44 inside. You leave the bets working for just one roll, then call the bets off. If you win you press the bet by one unit. You wait for a seven and call your bets on for one roll with the next shooter. You keep repeating the process till two sevens in a row are thrown. Downside is the enormous patience and discipline needed to stand there waiting for the seven while numbers are being thrown otherwise good for choppy and cold tables.
11. Betting $34 inside
You chart the inside numbers before you decide how long to leave up your bets.$12 each on the 6 and 8. $5 each on the 5 and 9. After the first hit you regress to $6 each on the 6 and 8. Depending on how you charted the table, you would take down or leave up the 5 and 9. After the second hit, depending on your chart you can take your bets down or leave them working. This method has sensible betting and it looks to limit your risk while still being able to take advantage or a good roll. The downside is an early seven.
