Like most casino games, winning at Craps depends mostly on your luck as a player. There is absolutely no strategy that will allow you to determine what the outcome of the dice will be. In fact, even if you pray to all of the gods from Anubis to Zeus, it’s still impossible for anyone to predict what the outcome of the dice roll will be. The best that you can do when playing craps is to choose the best bets where the odds are most at your favor and hope that you’ll be blessed by lady luck.
Uncool but Practical
Everybody wants to be that suave James Bond-esque guy at the casino table who spouts out some pretty impressive craps terminology and always wins his bet. However, there’s a reason why James Bond is only a fictional character. So if you say ‘Snake Eyes’ at the craps table, which is the bet for 1/1 or perhaps Hard Eight or Six the Hard Way, then you’re most likely to go home broke. Bets like these are extremely cool but also extremely difficult to land. So, if you’re not too big on money, then you’re much better off making much simpler bets because they actually have much better odds. So, the next time you play, remember that if you value your money, then you’ll make simple, no nonsense bets.
Take Advantage of Free Odds
Free odds are the only bets that you can make in craps where the house has zero advantage. As such, you should always take advantage of them and place bets on them. If you keep betting at the free odds, you’re bound to double up with your bet at one point. Unless, of course, you’re really unlucky.
Learn when to walk away
Finally, one very important thing to remember for craps is to learn when to walk away. There are two conditions for walking away: if you’re winning and you want to leave with your winnings intact or if you’re losing and you want to cut your losses. Both cases are extremely difficult. But they’re necessary if you ever want to make a profit. Always remember that the odds are against you when you play luck games such as craps. Even if you do win, chances are that the casino will get their money back in the long run. This is exactly why you shouldn’t rely on casino games for your income and why you should just treat them as forms of entertainment. Once you do start relying on them, you’re in big trouble.
