Craps is an exciting and volatile game of chance – but that doesn’t mean you can’t use the laws of probability to boost your chances of success. Check out a couple of the most popular basic Craps strategies…
If we ‘Fail-Proof’ Craps Strategy
doesn’t really like the name of this popular craps strategy – because let’s face it, there is nothing like fail-proof. However, it is a sneaky system that can boost your enjoyment and potentially your Craps rewards. Essentially, the Fail-Proof Strategy for craps aims to protect your cash as aggressively as a bank manager!
Here’s the quick guide to the gaming strategy that’s even been used on the tables of rich cities:
On every roll, place a bet on the don’t pass line.
Your aim is to get to the point – in which case you can’t lose; you’ll get your stake back if you push and hitting the point will deliver a profitable wager. For example, rolling a 2 or 3 has an 8% chance and delivers a 1 credit profit, while a 7 or 11 has a probability of 22.2% and would result in a losing bet. According to the stats, this system is a long-term winner, so it’s well worth testing out with a free-play or bonus offer.
Field Bet Craps Strategy
Any successful craps strategy will use the power of probability to yield a result (now I bet you wish you’d paid more attention at school?). The Field Bet Craps System does just that and has proven to be a potential winner when played over time.
First up, look at the stats – every wager placed on the field has a 44.4% winning… not bad, However, statistically, when there’s been a run of losing field bets, logic dictates that the 44.4% becomes a significantly more favorable number! Check out some more statistics – there’s a 33.9% chance of 2 consecutive non-field numbers winning (i.e. 5, 6, 7, or 8), 17.18% probability of 3, 9.5% for 4, and just a 5.3% chance of 5 consecutive non-field wins!
These numbers are enough to get a little excited about because it means there’s some potential to use some devilishly effective Craps strategies to try and get a statistical edge (and some good payouts!).
Choose a field number (3,4 or 5) and wait until the non-field numbers are thrown that many times consecutively
If the bet wins, start another Field Bet Strategy
Place a bet on your selection
If the bet fails, you have two choices:
Option 1 – Use a progressive betting ladder (such as a Martingale system) and keep betting until you win. The odds of a losing chain get dramatically smaller after every loss, however, be aware that there is no guarantee and you could potentially blow your bank (never exceed your budget). You can use any chin length but should decide before you start when to quit.
Option 2 – Use a straight, 1-bet approach to Craps. If your bet wins, bank the cash, but if it loses take the loss and start again. Due to the statistics, this method may still result in a successful Craps session.
Craps is a highly enjoyable but volatile game. It’s, therefore, a great idea to always game with a weekly and session budget. That way – if your strategies fail or you simply hit a bad session….you can walk away with a smile on your face and hit the casino when the stats are being kinder.
