Different Types of Casino Craps

Different Types of Craps

When you come across a game of craps, there’s a good chance that it will employ the standard rules. However, variations on craps do exist, and the following are some of the most common:

Simple Craps – In this basic version of the game, the player wins on a roll of 2, 3, 4, 10, 11, and 12. If a 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 is rolled, the player loses.

High Point Craps – A player wins if they get an 11 or 12 on their first roll. If a 2 or 3 are thrown on the initial roll, the dice are returned to the player for another try. Any number from 4 to 10 can be established as the point, and the player must exceed that total on their next roll.

Crapless Craps – The player can’t lose on the come out roll, but the only automatic winner is the 7. Since the house edge is nearly quadrupled, most experienced players avoid this game.

Die Rich Craps – A single die is used in this version of the game, and the player wins on the come out roll by getting a 6. The pass line bet loses on a 1, and the numbers 2 through 5 establish the point. The player then gets three rolls to make the point, and the payout fluctuates with the number of rolls. Rolling a 1, however, always results in a loss.

Chuck a Luck – Three dice are rolled from a shaker, and players wager on a number from 1 to 6. The bettor wins according to how many times their chosen number comes up on the roll. While it’s closer to sic bo than craps, novice players may confuse the two.

New York Craps – There are several differences in the rules, but the biggest is that Come and Don’t Come wagers aren’t allowed. This variant can be found on the East Coast, as well as certain parts of Europe.

Best Craps Bets

If you want to reduce the casino advantage as low as possible, stick with the following wagers.

Pass Odds– If the come-out roll results in a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, the player can take odds by wagering a set multiple of the pass line bet. This new wager wins if the point is made, and it pays at the following odds: 2:1 for a 4 or 10; 3:2 for a 5 or 9; and 6:5 for a 6 or 8.

Don’t Pass Odds – Like the previous wager, except this time the player is betting on a 7 to be rolled after the point has been established. Pays 1:2 against a 4 or 10; 2:3 against a 5 or 9; and 5:6 against a 6 or 8.

Worst Craps Bets

Craps at US casinos provide a lot of fun betting options, but some of them are heavily slanted in favor of the house. If you want to gamble smart, always avoid the following wagers:

Any 7 – Pays 4:1if the shooter rolls a 7. Unfortunately, the house edge is 16.67%.

World – Pays 26:5 if a 2 or 12 are rolled and 11:5 on a 3 or 11. If a 7 comes up, the result is a push. The house edge is 13.33%.

The Art of Dice Control

If you’re playing craps games online, this won’t be an option. For the land-based player, however, dice control is an interesting strategy that’s intended to negate the random nature of the game. The player positions the dice in his hand and tosses them in such a way that they graze the back wall instead of bouncing off.

Casinos frown on dice control, so hours of practice are needed to perfect its execution. Some Gamblingpedia.org experts argue that it’s impossible to determine the outcome of the roll with any consistency, although there are players who claim over 100 throws in a row using this method.

How to Know if A Roulette System Will Fail – Without Purchasing It

Dear roulette enthusiast,

I virtually have every system that applies virtually every principle ever conceived of in attempt to beat roulette. Save yourself time and money by avoiding systems that simply don’t work.

Virtually every system seller CLAIMS their system is a long-term winner, but virtually every system fails in the long-term. So how can you know the truth about any system without actually purchasing?

… by understanding roulette, and the ONLY legitimate principles that make it beatable in the long-term. Once you understand the principles, you can eliminate most systems that are guaranteed to fail, without risking a cent.

This page is to help you avoid wasting money on systems that do not and literally CANNOT work. Understand I’ve been purchasing, developing and testing gambling

systems for well over a decade. And my work has not been just occasional. It has been solid work — often every day of the week. You can choose whether or not to take my advice.

Many system sellers resort to incredibly dishonest ways to discredit their competitors in attempt to increase sales of their own systems. They know their system isn’t what they claim and willingly defraud their purchasers, so why wouldn’t they lie about competitors?

Often dishonest system sellers post blatantly false and malicious lies, under a variety of names, and spread false rumors on message boards.

Often the lies are made to appear they’re from people that have purchased a system — after all, that’s the best way to fool system purchasers. Furthermore, consider that players submit a non-disclosure agreement to not discuss my system with anyone without written consent from myself – it is a term of purchase. If you question me about rumors, don’t expect me to address garbage – you choose to believe whatever you want. The best way to know whether or not a system is what the system seller claims is by asking the system seller the right questions then gauging theirresponse.

I do not want any part of childish mud-slinging between system sellers, so I will not identify specific systems or their sellers. Please don’t ask me about other systems or their sellers.

Instead, I will post the following points for your consideration, then you can decide for yourself:

To overcome ANY casino game’s statistical edge (house edge) and win in the long-term, you MUST be able to predict the outcomes with sufficient accuracy. So specifically with roulette, it means your method to determine where the ball will land NEXT must be accurate enough to overcome the house edge. You don’t need to be accurate on EVERY spin — only over a number of spins. Almost every system relies on either progression betting or predicting patterns of some kind.

Progression betting is statistically guaranteed failure even without a table’s maximum bets — this is common knowledge amongst professional gamblers. The word “professional” does count for something. So either way you look at it, you can only beat a casino game if the house edge is overcome.

And to do this with roulette, you need to predict where the ball will land with sufficient accuracy. And how can you predict it? Well first consider, what are you predicting? . . . where the roulette marker will be placed on the betting table, OR where the ball will land on the wheel?

The answer is both, BUT considering the betting table is merely a “scattered” representation of the wheel, where do you think you should focus your attention — the wheel, or the betting table? Yes of course the table is EASIER … but if you focus on the betting table instead of the wheel (where it counts), you are guaranteed to lose.

Understand first the wheel’s numbers are scattered, so you need to decode them before they make any sense. Then they are further encoded by the betting table, and the casino’s know if you focus on the table, you will definitely lose.

Systems that use outside bets (such as the dozens, columns and red/black), literally CANNOT win in the long-term. It doesn’t matter what system you have!

Why? Because the outside bets do not represent the wheel in a fashion that enables you to select segments of the wheel. They are a representation of scattered/encoded segments of the wheel. And if you cover scattered segments of the wheel, it’s absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to overcome the house edge. For example, red on the betting table represents every second pocket. It doesn’t matter how you bet, what progression or strategy you use, red and black does not represent actual areas of the wheel, so covering either black or red is guaranteed failure.

A system that beats the house edge does not require any progression betting to produce a long-term profit. If a system requires progression and cannot win in the long term with flat bets only, it will lose over time,guaranteed.

If a system seller claims their system wins against random number generators, they are lying! It is absolutely impossible. For any casino game to be beatable, you must be able to predict the results with enough accuracy to overcome the house edge. And what information do you have about a random number generator that gives you ANY kind of accuracy? NONE. I am so confident of this, that I will offer anyone a US$100,000 reward that shows me a system that wins against 1,000,0000 random number generated spins. I know random number generators are easier to test with, but I assure you they cannot be beaten! You can only beat a REAL roulette wheel.

Of the hundreds of systems I have, excluding mine, only two ever worked in the long-term. And not surprisingly, they were both based on a REAL roulette wheel.

If you’ve been unable to verify a casino game has been beaten, then chances are it cannot be beaten. I mean real proof, not just someone’s word or a rumor.

You’ve no doubt heard of card counters — but they don’t win millions because they only slightly beat the house edge. But you can read of people who have won

millions with roulette. Even if they use computers, at least it’s in the news and verifiable. Links to news articles are on my site, rouletteproof.com.

Something to make you think: “On a European wheel, the ball lands on 0. Before it landed, what were the chances of it landing on 0?” Of course a mathematician will say “1 in 37”. Do you think this is correct, or is there more to it than just stating odds? Makes you think — random, or cause and effect? Unpredictable, or predictable?

Ask the system seller the following questions:

Q. Does your system win in the long-term with all online casinos, including ones that use random number generators? Does it overcome the house edge?

Before you ask this, emphasize you want a long-term winner for ALL online casinos. If they say that is what their system is, they are either blatantly lying to you, or they simply have no idea what they’re talking about. Whether you like it or not, a long term winner for all online casinos simply does not and CANNOT exist.

Q. Exactly on what principles does your system overcome the casinos edge?

If they can’t explain the exact principles, or they only give vague explanations such as they’ve discovered some secret, they are most likely lying to you. It doesn’t matter what the hype is or what their claims are, if they can’t give explanations, don’t trust them.

Q. If two players were playing the samesystem on the same table, would they make exactly the same bets?

Some systems require guesswork, so whether or not the system truly works can never be proven.

Q. Does your system use any progression betting?

Progression systems can give the short-term illusion that they work, but unless they first beat the house edge, they fail in the long term because they either eventually blow your bankroll, or you reach the table’s maximum bet.

Q. Does your system require me at all to quit when I’m up?

Whether or not leaving when you’re up is good advice is not the point. Leaving when you’re up is not a system. It is something you do with a short-term winning strategy, or if you’re playing for fun. With a system that beats the house edge, the more you play, the more you earn. It might sound like good advice to leave when you’re up, but the casino doesn’t ask you to leave when you’ve lost too much… because they know if you aren’t beating the house edge, you’ll continue to lose.

OTHER POINTS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A SYSTEM:

Why is the system being sold?

Are there genuine reasons for selling?

Can you verify who the system seller is?

Do they offer something like bank account details, and are they

located in a jurisdiction where laws are modern (most

English speaking countries)?

Steer clear of the Bahamas and island countries.

The authorities in the UK, USA and Australia are most vigilant in prosecuting fraudsters.

Testimonials are very easily and very frequently faked. And even if they are real, they typically represent short-term winnings only, such as “I won $1000 my first time out!”

Money-back guarantees are over-rated – they exist to convince more people to buy, but actually asking for your money back doesn’t mean you’ll get it back. You may just get excuses instead of a refund; that’s what scammers do very well. Most of the losing systems come with “unconditional 30-day” guarantees.

Craps Proposition Bets: Here Are Eight Wagers to Avoid When Playing This Table Game

Look at any craps table and you’ll see numerous wagers where some appear to have hefty payouts. These are One Roll wagers. None of them pay off in true odds. These bets should be avoided because they can deplete your bankroll very quickly.

Seasoned players know there are thirty-six possible combinations that can be made with a pair of dice, each with numbers one through six. For example, the number 7 can be rolled six ways, such as: 6 and 1; 1 and 6; 5 and 2; 2 and 5; 4 and 3; 3 and 4. The numbers 6 and 8, five ways; numbers 5 and 9, four ways; numbers 4 and 10, three ways; 3 and 11, two ways; and the 2 and 12, one way.

With the aforementioned in mind, here are the bets that you should avoid and why, when playing:

The Field

This is a one roll wager where the player wins if a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 or 12 appear and loses if a 5, 6, 7 or 8 appear. Payouts are even money except for the 2 or 12 which pay 2/1. A novice player would look at the field and think, “There are seven numbers to win with and only four to lose.” However, if you combine all the ways the winning numbers can be rolled they will total 16. The losing numbers combinations total 20. Thus, winning numbers can appear 45% of the time but the losers come forth at 55%. The house edge is about 6%.

Any Craps

Another one roll wager that pays 7/1 if a two, three, or twelve is rolled. Add them all up and the true odds are 9/1 against. The house edge is about 11%.

Any Seven

The worst one roll wager for the player. The odds are 6/1 against and the payout is only 4/1. If you really want to make this bet, my advice to you is, don’t. The house edge is about 17%.

Hardway Bets

These are the even number totals of 4, 6, 8, and 10. In our Monopoly days we knew them as doubles. Two 2’s = 4, etc. In the world of craps these are known as Hardways. When a player elects to make a Hardway wager he or she is betting that particular number will only appear as an even number total, for example, a hard eight as 4 and 4. All of the other four combinations that make up the eight now become losers. The Hardway bettors now lose when a seven or any eight other than the 4 and 4 appear. The odds are 10/1 against but the payout is only 9/1. The house edge for a hard 4 or 10 is about 11%, and hard 6 or 8, about 9%.

Horn Bet

A one roll wager betting that a 2, 3, 11, or 12 will emerge. The bet must be made in multiples of four units. You will be paid 30/1 for the 2 or 12, or 15/1 for the 3 or 11, minus your three losing wagers. These numbers only have a 1/6 chance of showing up. You can also bet these numbers individually. Your best bet is no bet. The house edge is about 12.5%.

C & E (Craps and Eleven)

The C&E bet is actually a combination of the any craps (2,3,12) bet, or the 11 (AKA Yo) bet. Basically, when you bet on C and E, you are wagering that the shooter will roll any craps numbers (2, 3, or 12) or 11. If you hit any one of these numbers, you win the bet.

There’s a 1 in 6 chance that the C and E bet will hit. The payouts are different for each part of the bet. If the crap numbers come up it pays 3/1. If an 11 is rolled, 7/1. the total overall house edge is 11%.

Fire Bet

Not all casinos offer this wager. The bettor(s) win if the shooter makes at least four different point numbers before a seven out is rolled. Only different point numbers count. The pay tables range from a 10/1 payout for one point made four times up to 2000/1 If all six point numbers are made four times each before a seven out. In this unlikely event the house edge is a whopping 25%!

Hop Bet

This is a one roll verbal bet that is rarely played because most bettors are unaware of it. A player may wager that the dice will hop to a certain combination on the next roll. For example: if you have a hunch that an 8 will be rolled as a 6 and 2, simply shout to the dealer, “Five dollars on hop eight as six and two”. If it happens you will be paid 15/1. You may also call out a Hardway, “Hop eight at four and four”. If you’re lucky, you win 30/1. Any callout is permitted. All payouts are the same. This is a typical sucker bet. Depending on the hop combo called out, the house edge can range from about 5% to 12%.

Your best bet is to stick to the line wagers, pass, don’t pass, come, don’t come with the odds bet(s) and the place numbers 6 and 8.

Good Luck!
