How to find more enjoyment playing Craps


    

Craps is one of the most enjoyable and exciting games in the casino, but to beginners it can often seem daunting. However, once players have learned how to play the game and become familiar with its rules, they soon come to realize that craps is more simple than they first thought.  

If you've been playing craps for a little while now and are looking for a way to make the most of your bets, it's time to seriously start thinking about utilizing a plan for your betting. Once you know the basics, such as the odds and the house edge, you can customize your bets so that you can make your bankroll last longer and have a more enjoyable time.

 

In this article, we'll talk you through some key tips that will help you, as well as introduce some advance plans that you can start to utilize as you become more confident at the craps table.  

Tip 1 Get some low-risk experience under your belt 

In a brick-and-mortar casino, the craps table is always the place to be. But the thrill of playing the game can lead some players to get caught up in the excitement and forget about the edges they face. Our first tip will help you combat this. Get some low-risk experience under your belt.  

What do we mean by low risk? Well, being able to play the game without risking monetary wagers. You can do this by cutting your teeth on free-to-play simulation games or by playing the real thing in a digital casino. Most leading casinos in the US now provide substantial bonus offers that include a free bankroll even with no deposit, as well as generous welcome bonuses.  

Playing craps online can help you to get used to the game without the intimidation of being in a casino, and with substantially lower wagering requirements.

Tip 2 Know how much to bet 

Being a dice game, there's not much you can do to affect the outcome of a single roll, so don't waste your time trying to predict them. Instead, an effective craps strategy will involve riding the outcome of a game and timing your bets well.  

Understanding the differences between field bets, point numbers, and the pass line will strengthen your confidence to deploy your bets until it becomes second nature.  

Tip 3 Use the best odds 

As with all casino games, you need to take emotion out of the picture when it comes to playing craps well. You should always prepare yourself for the worst possible outcomes as well as the best ones and understand that there will be times when you simply won't win. You can stack things a little more in your favour, however, by taking advantage of the best odds available.  

As you should already know by now, the Pass bet has a 1.41% house edge, while the Don't Pass bet has just under 1.41%. Both of these Line Bets should form the core of your craps strategy. Furthermore, you can boost the efficacy of your Don't Pass bet by understanding when the best time to buy Pass or Lay odds is. 

 

Tip 4 Manage your bankroll well 

It goes without saying that you should never play more than you can afford to lose at the craps table, but it's certainly worth repeating especially if you're playing craps in a brick-and-mortar casino. As rousing as the atmosphere at the table is, don't let the general excitement steer you from your betting plan the heart of which should be built around how much you can afford to play with each game.  

Think of your bankroll as your balance: the goal is to make it last longer, not dip into it to place increasingly risky bets. Know how much in total you're willing to wager in advance and stick to it. If you find you hit a losing streak early on in the game, take a break and return to it with a refreshed mind.
