You may have heard of claims from individuals that they have the “magical system” that is guaranteed to win. Do not believe it. Although there are better systems than others, it is mathematical impossible to create a system that would give a player an edge in any game of chance.
Okay, tell me how to win consistently playing craps! I am going to share with you the secrets of winning consistently. Winning consistently is easy to understand once you know why people loose consistently. Casinos strive basically on four types of players:
1 Players with unrealistic winning goals (greedy).
2 Players who rely strictly on luck (as oppose to skill).
3 Players with little (or no) discipline.
4 Players who play not to lose (as oppose to playing to win). Assuming this is the case (bet on it), it stands to reason that the key to winning consistently is by Playing Smart.
Playing smart starts with making good bets. Look at the topic on “Calculating Odds” to determine the odds the House has over each bet. Obvious making the best bets and staying away from the bad bets will increase your chances of winning. However, there must be more to winning than making good bets or more people would be winning, right? The other parts to the puzzle of winning consistently are:
1 Having a solid game plan
2 Effective money management
3 Having the discipline and confidence to execute your plans The next time you visit a casino, try this exercise:
1 Watching the Table
2 Minimum Bank Roll: $100.00.
3 Maximum bet is: $15.00
TIPS: Get your chips in order. I like to separate my $5 chips in-group of 5 separated by $1 chips. Use what ever makes you feel comfortable. The point here is to always be able to KNOW how much money you are ahead or behind. Avoid making a bet while a roll is in progress. It is hard to get a feel of the game without first observing the action.
Place odds on the shooter point as follows:
If the shooter point is 4 or 10 place single odd. In this case you would put an additional $5 behind your Pass Line.
If the shooter point is 5 or 9 you will place $6.00 behind the Pass Line.
If the shooter point is 6 or 8 you will place double odds or $10.00 behind your Pass Line bet. In either case, your maximum risk is only $15.00. You will repeat this process twice before implementing your system(s).
The purpose here is for you to get a feel of how things are moving on the table. This will help you decide which strategy you would like to execute.
Here are three popular and easy to remember strategies:
STRATEGY #1: Classic Regression.
Goal: To make a profit on one hit.
In this strategy, you wait until the shooter has made his/her point before placing your bets. After the Point is made you will place two units or $12.00 on both the 6 and 8. After one hit, you will ask the Dealer to come down one unit on both the 6 & 8.
Results: You now have a $2.00 profit and can no longer get hurt by the Seven. In addition, you now have $12.00 working for you. After another hit, bring down all bets and wait for the roller to make his/her point or 7 out, then start the process over.
On two hits your net profit is: $21.00. Now depending on how confident you are, you can come down after the first hit profiting $14.00 or keep betting on the 6 & 8. If you prefer to keep your bets riding make sure that both the 6 & 8 are covered.
Behind the Strategy: There are ten combined ways to make a 6 and 8 and six combined ways for a seven.
STRATEGY #2: ” Three Point Molly”
Goal: To have three numbers working for you at all times.
In this strategy you will make a Pass Line bet and two Come bets.
Make a Pass Line bet.
Backup your Pass Line bet with single or double odds.
Make a Come Line bet.
Backup each Come Bets with single or double odds (two Come bets maximum).
When one of your Come Bets wins, place another Come Bets.
Continue this process until the shooter makes his/her Point or Seven-Out.
Behind the Theory: Each times you make a Come Bet you are protecting your Pass Line bets and taking advantage of a hot roller.
STRATEGY #3: “Anything But Seven”
Goal: To win on any number thrown except a Seven.
Don’t place any bets on the Don’t Pass or Pass Line, but wait until a point has been established.
Place two units on 5, 6, & 8.
Place one unit on the Field.
Results: This method is a little riskier than the previous strategies, since your total monetary risk is: $39.00. Therefore, it is suggested that you remove all bets after three rolls. Should the shooter hold the dice for at least three rolls, you will stand to win anything from $15.00-$27.00(more if the numbers 2 or 12 are rolled).
