Ever played craps? If you have, you fall into one of two categories. You either love it; or you hate it. The reason behind the varying sentiments is simple. You can either monumentally increase your bankroll, or watch it dwindle before your very eyes in the matter of just a few rolls of the dice. Craps is different, in that unlike other games of chance, there is a secret to “where” you bet your money. The best pass bets to make are Pass and Don’t Pass, and Come and Don’t Come, with or without Free Odds.
Just as in all games, there are no surefire systems that will guarantee a winning return.
However, there are some keys to help increase your odds of winning consistently:
- While you can’t guarantee that you will win consistently, you can lose consistently. Players who: play not to lose, not to win; play without discipline; rely strictly on luck; set unrealistic winning goals; are without sound money management systems.
- If you bet the same amount each time, you will almost always lose. Using the Progression and Regression method (by increasing and decreasing your wagers at a fixed rate, i.e. starting with twice the table minimum, followed by the minimum, and so on as you win) is the best bet to make money long-term.
- Don’t let your winnings Ride. Otherwise, you have nothing to show for your initial win except an ensuing loss. Remember that craps is a streaky game, and you will need that bankroll down the line. Understanding that, you should bring enough cash to wager 25 to 30 bets to ensure the security of your winnings when they do finally come.
