Craps Strategies

Craps in a live casino is fun and extremely exciting for the players and sometimes for the house. Online it loses some of the live excitement as there is no crowd and the mob excitement that the mob mentality generates. A hot dice table in a live casino is like a people magnet and it will draw a crowd of players and watchers like no other game in the casino. A player that is lucky enough to have a place on the side of the dice table can feel the positive energy and see the stacks of chips grow around the table, including their own stack. This is an experience that needs to be seen and lived through one time to understand how this situation is beyond a normal experience that a player has seen before. I have personally seen this many times and so has any pit boss in any live casino in the world. The house gets very nervous when this is taking place as there will be players at the table that know how to take advantage of this specific situation. Knowledgeable players will make a ton of money during this period of a hot table.

Craps Strategies

The strategies in this situation are the same as normal play except the smart player is letting the winnings ride and making exceptional money on the hot streak that has enveloped the dice table. The first obvious strategy in this case and in all dice play is to wager on the pass line and then take the odds on any point that comes up. Any roll that is not two, three, seven, eleven or twelve will become a point or a number the shooter in now trying to repeat before throwing a seven These point numbers are four, five, six, eight, nine or ten. The odds that a player can take on any point are set by the house and can be any where from matching the pass line bet to ten times the pass line bet. If the shooter makes his point, the odds are paid out at the correct odds for the specific point. The harder the point is to make, the more the odds will be and this is one of the ways that a player on a hot table makes a killing as shooters are able to make many points in a row. This hot streak on a dice table can last for a couple hours or more and the entire time the house is sweating bullets. The first clue that something is up is a lot of numbers are getting rolled and shooters are making the come out point with no problem as the only seven seen is the one on the come out roll. If a point is rolled on the first roll and the shooter repeats the number before a seven is rolled the shooter has made the point and continues to roll the dice. This is a winning roll for the shooter and for all other players at the table that had bet on the pass line. Any wagers placed on this number would win also as well as any hardway bets if the rolled point number is a hardway when made.

There are numerous other bets that should be made and few that should never be made. Bets that should never be made are the Big Six and the Big Eight. The house does not pay the odds on the bet. Field bets for the same reason. Bets that should be played are place bets, buying the four and the ten, and pass line or come line bets. There are many sites online that list the good bets and the bad dice bets
