Craps is a difficult game, and therefore there are a great many strategies for intermediate and experienced players. If you are new to dice, your best bet is to learn a few beginner strategies that will make you feel comfortable placing small bets.
The simplest craps bet is the Pass Line bet during the first half of each round. There are three possible outcomes here: you win with natural (7 or 11), lose with craps (2, 3, 12), or you win twice with a point (any other number) and its repeated before being thrown number 7.
One of the popular strategies for beginners is to alternate the Pass Line bet with a series of Come Line bets according to the following scheme: 1. Pass Line bet; 2. The shooter rolls the dice; 3. Single or double odds; 4. Come Line Bet. 5. The shooter rolls the dice. 6. Repeat steps 3-4. 7. Shooter rolls the dice.
- In dice, the advantage is always on the side of the casino. The Pass Line bet gives the casino a 1.41% advantage. In other bets the casino has an even greater advantage, but the payout for them is also significantly higher for the players.
- For newbies, dice is a tricky game, so the best place to start is to play the demo at one of the leading online casinos. Only when you feel that the essence of the game is clear to you, you can start playing for money.
- If you are a beginner, place low risk bets – Pass Line and Come Line. As soon as you are more or less “involved”, you can try to take a risk and place a bet in the center of the table.
- Craps involves communication, whether you are playing in a real casino or online. But remember: communication with interesting people and entertainment is, of course, good, but you are playing only for yourself. How much others are betting, you should not worry – you are playing not with the players, but with the casino.
