Answers to the Top 4 Questions Every Craps Player Asks

Craps is one of the most exciting and popular casino game. When you understand the game and use strategies at the table it can also be profitable. If you are new to the game or want to increase your winning potential, asking questions about craps is key. No question is stupid or silly, and the answers will help you to make the right decision when playing at your favorite casino or online. Below are a 4 of the top questions from players so you can get a better understanding of craps and improve your game play. If you are completely new to the game, read this introduction to craps article first.

What is the Safest Bet in Craps?

If you are trying to play it safe, the best bet you can make is the pass bet. With a house edge of just 1.41%, you are risking very little and this wager pays even money. If you wager $20, then you earn $20. With this bet, if the come out roll is a 7 or 11, you win. If the come out roll is a 2, 3 or 12, then you lose.

What Bet Has the Largest Payout?

This would be a 2, also known as Snake Eyes (There is also a craps variant named the Snakes Eyes), and a 12, the Boxcars. If you roll either, then you will be paid out 30 to 1. These two outcomes are the rarest in the game and will provide you with the largest payout. Most players are not going to place the Snake Eyes bet. Let’s take the following two wagering options for example. So, if you are unlucky enough to place a $20 bet on the pass line bet, and a 2 is rolled, then you lose. A pass line bet only wins if the come-out roll is a 7 or an 11. This bet will lose if a 2, 3 or 12 is rolled. Now, if you placed a don’t pass wager, then the bet would win if the 2 was rolled or a 3.

What is the Place 6 and 8 in Craps?

This is one of the best bets you can make in the game of craps. The shooter needs to roll a 6 or 8, depending on what you have chosen, before a 7 is rolled, for you bet to win. Players are paid 7 to 6 on the wager. Be sure you bet the Place 6 or Place 8 bet instead of the Big 6 or Big 8 bets. By choosing to wager the Big option instead of the Place, you will earn only a 1 to 1 payout.

Is There a Craps Strategy I Can Use?

Like other table games, craps does provide players with several strategies to be able to increase the chance of a win. One of the most common strategies to use during craps game play is to choose the best bets at the table. This would be the Pass/Don’t Pass or the Come/Don’t Come wagers. If you stick to these wagers, then the house only has an advantage of around 1.40%. if you choose to lay or take odds, then the house edge is decreased even more. Here are some craps strategies that includes precision dice control.
