Craps Guidelines and Strategy


Craps seems like a complicated game, and it can be, but you do not have to understand all of the rules to participate in it well and receive a honest return. If you stick with the general wagers with a very low house advantage and don’t wager when you are not certain what it’s you’re wagering on and its odds.

By wagering on the pass line and purchasing odds you can wager with almost no casino edge. This almost makes the phrase ‘gamble’ false if you really think it over.

Pass Line

The contest starts by placing a wager on either Pass or Do not Pass before the Come Out throw. If a seven or eleven is rolled first you win and two, three, or 12 means you loss if you place a bet on pass. The opposite is true if you bet on Don’t Pass. With the exception of twelve which is a push if you place a bet Don’t Pass. Most all players wagers on Pass, so if you pick Don’t Pass, do not draw recognition to yourself, particularly if you win. If you come away with a win that means everybody else just was defeated, and are not going to take kindly to showing off. Should a different number besides two, three, seven, eleven or twelve are tossed 1st, that number is the point. Don’t bet on the Pass line after the Come Out roll, it’s allowed, but the probabilities are against you.

Buying the Odds

In order to take control of the betting with virtually no house edge, you must at first bet on the Pass Line. Next you can bet a multiple (depending on the betting house) of your Pass bet that the point will be tossed before a seven. Depending on the number of the point, you can come away with up to two to one.

Betting along these basic lines will give you with honest chance of coming out a champ. Add the exhilaration that the craps always appears to generate and the only way to lose is not to compete.
