If you love the game of craps as much as I do, you’ll know that it offers up a unmatched level of action combined with endless possibilities for winning and of course – loads and loads of fun!

People who haven’t yet gotten into the game of craps are usually freaked out but the large table and seemingly endless rules and betting combinations. However, I’ve come to realize that the secret to craps is to learn slowly and to have some sort of understanding of the house edge so you know when and where to bet and why. The way I learned was just to compile a list of tips from people who understood the “math” behind the game better than I do. So, I want to pass down some of my favorite tips – the ones that I find to be the easiest to remember and to implement when you’re looking forward to learn how to win at craps every time.

Ready? Let’s break it down and help you boost your bankroll and your craps skills with these 5 easy-to-master tips.

5The Odds Rules: When to pass and come and when not to

The rule of thumb is as follows: Put the smallest amount on the “don’t pass” or the “don’t come” and the largest amount behind it. Why? Simple. The house edge is on the don’t pass/don’t come bets but the player has the advantage on the odds bets. Next, the second rule of thumb also applied to this type of common craps bet. The house edge is on the pass line and the come line but the player again, has the advantage on the odds portion of the bets.

4Place the Six or Eight

When you’re playing in multiples of $6.00 (or the currency of your choice), place the six or 8 place-to-win bet. Why? The casino has only a 1.52% edge which means that you’ll be paid out seven dollars when the number hits (and easy profit every time)!

3Place the six or eight to lose

This tip is extremely easy and virtually foolproof! Place a $5.00 bet on the table and announce “6 (or 8) to lose.” Why? If the seven shows (which is a very high frequency number) then you win $4.00 as the house edge is only 1.82%.

2Lay against the 4 or 10

This tip is similar to the place the 6 or 8 to lose but the payouts are much higher. In this case you take the more “optimistic” approach and place $41 on the table and say “Lay against the 4 (or 10).” If you win, you get paid out $20!

1Place the five or nine to lose

In this bet, you put down $8.00 and bet that the numbers above will lose. Why? The house edge on this type of bet is low – only 2.5% so when the 7 shows (again, that happens often), you’ll win $5.00.

So there you go, these are 5 of the most effective tips on how to win at craps every time. Have you tried some of these? Have they worked for you? Let us know your tips on the comments section.
