Craps – Which Bet To Choose?

Craps is one of the oldest casino games, which is now played at every casino all over the world. Of course the game is a little different now, but still the point is the same. Then this game was available only for kings and their chivalry. Now everybody can play this game at a real or even online casino. As I said the game had changed, but not much. If it hadn’t been for this change the game would be much easier. The difference is based on the number of bets.

The game appeared at the beginning of the 12th century and then there were four bets available for players. The original bets are Pass/Don’t Pass Line Bets, Come/Don’t Come Bets. And do you know how many bets are there in the game now? I managed to find fifteen so-called ‘additional’ bets, can you imagine this? And I believe that these ‘new’ bets only make the game more difficult and complicated for understanding. To tell the truth I still don’t understand some bets and don’t see any difference between others. So it is quite difficult to understand and to remember all bets available at the Craps table.

The game of Craps is a table game, the main element of which is a pair of dice. The objective of the game is to predict the dice combination. The player has to make a bet on this or that combination and then it will be compared with the final dice combination. The number of bets is incredible and it is very difficult to make a choice. Except original four bets there is a Field, Big 6, Big 8, Lose, Hardway and other bets. You will hardly find any other game with such a number of bets. Moreover all these “new” bets appeared only in the 18th century when more and more people began to visit casinos and play the game of Craps and it is not for nothing.

If you think that these ‘new’ bets were accepted by casinos to increase the players’ chances of winning you are mistaken here. All these bets increase the house advantage over the players and decrease yours. Of course you can try these bets and maybe you will win, but still the original bets can make much more money.

So if you have a choice, and I guess you always do, make Pass/Don’t Pass, Come/Don’t Come bets and if you have enough money or credits try to make maximum odds bets as in most cases it is an odds bet that brings players good money.

Pass Line Bet is one of the most popular bets with players. With Pass Line you win with total of 7 or 11 rolled. If the total of 2,3,12 is rolled the bet is lost. If any other total is rolled it is called a point and here you can
