Winning the game of Craps is to understand the bets in the game, knowing the odds and the control of the dice or shooting as called in the casino term. If you have grasped the rules of the games and wish to play the game at online or land casinos here are few of the best winning strategies talked by experts to win the game of craps when playing at casinos.
Placing free odds on line bets
Placing free odds on line bets is one of the most common noted strategy of craps experts. The casino’s edge is in your overall bet drops as it has no edge in the free odds that you place. For instance, in a pass line bet the house edge is 1.41%. As soon as you place free odds on that bet the house edge drops to 0.8%. Placing double odds will make the house edge drop to 0.6%. Each time you add to your odds bet the lower the house edge becomes.
By placing chips behind your original bet on the line, Free odds are added. Unlike the Pass Line bet the odds bet can be removed at any time and can be placed any time after the come out roll. Important to know that the amount you can add for free odds always depends on the casino in question, a casino can allow anything from twice to one hundred times your original bet.
Have recurring or controlled shooting
Depending on if they want to roll a 7 or not, shooters can sometimes gather enough experience to throw in such a way that they lessen or boost the chance of seeing a seven. They can actually do this by positioning the numbers they want facing up when holding the dice in their hand and then they move their hand in a certain way so that the dice crash into each other, make a noise but stay in place. The roll in itself is something you need practice for and this can take a lot of time to be achieved. It’s a movement that takes the randomness out of the roll, increases the chances for the shooter getting the number he actually wants.
When doing this you have to remember that you must not only bet on your own rolls as the casino will definitely get suspicious and stop you from playing. What you can do however, is reduce the effect of bad shooters of your winnings by not betting on every one. It is wise to try to identify the good rollers in order to bet when they are shooting.
Know your betting amounts
You should have a set betting amount to play craps at both online or land casinos. Experts talk that you should divide your total bankroll by 50 and this gives you a good guidance on how much you should place on each bet. As an example say you have betting amount to $300, then you would base your bets on $6 units. If you take in $150, then you would base your bets on $3 units. By doing this you will be able to play for longer giving you a bigger winning chance. If you know that you will be visiting the craps table three times a day for two days, make sure you set a budget for each visit. Never use money you would have planned for another session or visit especially if the reason is because you are losing.
Watch for spot stretches and trends and try to ride them
When you are standing at craps tables always watch out for anyone that starts rolling winning numbers. He could be using one of the winning strategies and it is important that you realize about this and stick with such a shooter. Stretches do exist so if you are able to spot them you can increase your winnings considerably. Most stretches probably happen due to regulated shooting and will depend on how long the shooter can keep this going. So vital point, learn to spot streaks both on your own table and as well on other craps tables.
Grab your small wins
Experts talk that when you are at a craps table, winning 10 percent to 20 percent would be a really good day so don’t let the dreams of hitting the casino get the better of you. If at any point of the game you find yourself winning, grab the amount that you would have started with together with a bit of profit aside and continue to play with the rest of the profits. By doing this you know that at worst by the end of the night you will surely break even. The best scenario would obviously be to take what you win even a small winning instead of losing once for all.
Occasionally tip the dealer
Experts also believe that when you tip the dealers, you make them happy and the game more fun. When tipping the dealers you can sometimes place higher odds than the table would normally allow. When doing this it would mean that the house has a lower edge.
Know the bets and their outcomes
There are so many different bets you can make in Craps but only a few bets are ‘must know’ about, the rest aren’t worth concerning yourself with anyway. A lot of players base their approach around knowing which bets to lay and which bets to do without. Most of them will avoid nearly all bets bar the Come and Pass Line bets and also a few Place Bets, leaving the Proposition, Field, Big 6 and Big 8 bets to those pulled in by the stickperson.
Know your losing limit
It’s not a good idea according to experts to know your winning limits but certainly you should frame your mind as how much can you afford to lose. Thus never walk through a casino door with money you know you cannot afford to lose. It is never wise to head home after a night at the casino with none of the money you walked in with. Main reasons for this would be your mental state after losing everything, a lot of players just cannot handle this. The second reason would be that when losing everything, you just have not gambled smartly. Always head into the casino with one rule in mind and that is by saying, that you need to go home with at least half of which you have used in gambling at craps table.
With all these winning strategies in mind you can manage to play the game of Craps wisely and efficiently. It’s better to try the game for free at first at online casinos or practice with the craps games apps on your mobile before placing real money bets.
