Craps Rules and Tactics


Craps appears like a complex game, and it certainly can be, however you do not need to know all of the rules to play it well and receive a good return. If you stick with the general bets with a small house advantage and do not bet when you aren’t assured what it is you are betting on and its odds.

By betting on the pass line and purchasing odds you can wager with virtually no house advantage. This almost makes the saying ‘gamble’ false if you think about it.

Pass Line

The contest starts by laying a bet on the Pass or Don’t Pass prior to the Come Out toss. If a 7 or 11 is rolled first you win and 2, three, or 12 means you loss if you place a bet on pass. The converse is accurate if you place a bet on Don’t Pass. Except 12 is a push if you place a bet Do not Pass. Almost all gamblers lay money on Pass, so if you choose Do not Pass, do not attract recognition to yourself, specifically if you win. If you profit then everyone else just loss, and are not going to like any boasting. Should a different number besides 2, three, seven, 11 or twelve be rolled first, that number is the point. Don’t bet on the Pass line following the Come Out throw, it’s allowed, but the odds are against you.

Buying the Odds

In order to take control of the wager with almost no casino edge, you must at first place a bet on the Pass Line. Next you are able to wager a multiple (depending on the casino) of your Pass bet that the point will be tossed prior to a 7. dependent on the number of the point, you can come away with up to 2:1.

Betting along these basic lines will give you with honest chance of becoming a winner. Add the excitement that the craps always appears to generate and the only way to be deprived of it is not to play.
