How To Win At Craps

So you want to know how to win at craps? It seems like everybody is looking for the right magic to win at this game. The truth is that the casino will always have a slight advantage no matter what your strategy is. But there are some strategies you can use to give you a much better chance of winning in the short trial runs.

1. Use the odds of the game to better your chances of winning. Your first move should be to place the minimum bet the crap table allows on either the 6 or the 8. Next you will want to roll the dice until back to back sevens are rolled. Once back to back sevens are rolled, you can now bet 2 to 5% of your bankroll on the numbers 4,5,6,8,9,10. Place this wager evenly, throughout all these numbers on the table. If another seven is rolled, then remove all chips from the table and accept your minimum bet on the 6 or 8. If you win also remove all bets from the table accept your minimum bet.
2. Repeat the process.  Know that the odds of three sevens being rolled back to back are 1 in 216, so the odds are in your favor that it doesn't happen consistently over many trials. This is the reason why you will wait for the back to back sevens to be rolled—to increase the odds of you beating the casino on a regular basis.
3. Never place sucker bets that give the casino a ridiculous edge. These are the bets you have very low odds of winning. Bets such as the big 6 or big 8 and "hard" bets where you must roll a number in a single roll or risk losing your placed bet. An example of a type of "hard" bet on a crap table is the double five. If you roll a double five, the pay out is 7 to 1. But the problem is, it has to be done in one roll of the dice, or you lose your wager. Bets like these are designed to increase the casino's house edge and to give you a false hope of believing "if I can just roll that number once, that will be great."
