    What do you bet in Craps?

    Most people bet the Pass, they take odds, do you take the come bets or have a system or what?

    if your going to bet the pass take full odds that puts you in an advantage against the house.

    depends on how im feeling but to save some money and get a better rating play dont pass then bet all the #'s except the point only way you get screwed here is if the dice hit point 4 or 5 times as long as a guy throws #'s im happy then when he craps out my bet covers my original outlay

    How do the pit bosses usually rate you?

    I only bet when I throw the dice....Pass line, Place on 6 & 8, Free odds bets only on 4 & 10.

    Let's say you play the pass, odds, maybe a couple come bets, maybe occasionally some other stuff. Do they even bother rating you?

    Money Management is key any being properly Bankrolled -- You have to be at the table when a hot roll begins , so don't bust-out... Might take 2 or 3 or 4 hrs , then again it might be the 1st roll when you buy-in

    At minimum you need 10x the amount of $$ you'll have on the table in action at the same time... Say you do $5.00 Pass + $25 Odds then Place two #s for $30 each. Total of 90.00 dollars. $90 x 10 = $900.00 -- Personally I would want $1,200.00

    Ok , say you do that ^ -- Do NOT increase your exposure until you have collected 3x from same shooter then Place one more number or do a 1/2 Press. Never Press twice in a row. Collect one FULL hit then 1/2 press. So it would be, Collect , 1/2 press , Collect , 1/2 press , Collect , 1/2 press , Collect , 1/2 press ...

    There is nothing you can do to FORCE a hot roll. Some idiots believe if they raise their bet amounts and/or press too fast they can force a hot roll

    Those are just a few thoughts...

    anytime you put money on the table you should give them your players card to rate you

    Most casinos don't rate you on your odds. They rate you on your pass line and your come, place bets, etc. but not your odds. So if you are expecting to get rated well, you gotta either play really big or tip alot and hope they rate you higher. If you are worried about how you are being rated, make sure you ask the pit boss how their rating works.

    Paul's way not bad

    Sammy great post!!!!


    I bet pass line and back it although wait until dice lose 2 straight times meaning roller. I think small edge that way

    Don't pass/don't come for the minimum then lay maximum odds on each of them. Hope to load at least 3 numbers before the shooter 7's out. The best is when you load up all 6 numbers and the 7 comes right after, then the dealers make a little train full of chips and it goes right to you while everyone else bitches.

    You must accept that craps is a -EV game regardless how you play , PERIOD

    Betting from the dark-side will flatten the swings some... for you'll have smaller dollar amount wins & losses

    Betting from the 'do' (pass/come) will swing wildly... 2hrs of losses can be regained PLUS in a 20min roll

    Playing pass/place is a bitch when 5 shooters in-a-row throw Point/7out

    Even worse , more of a bitch is playing the dark-side during a 45min roll

    Yep, I've been there.

    Overall I enjoy craps more than any other games, but it really sucks when tables are cold.

    Even tough fire bets are sucker bets, but they make craps more exciting.

    Another casino game I truly don't understand. I see no formula that works.
