Craps Strategy Guide

Craps is purely a game of chance. This means that it is not possible to affect the outcome of the game. With this thought in mind, it is therefore important to know as many tips as possible which lead up to the final point of the game, thereby tipping the odds in online craps in your favour as much as possible.

The first tip in online craps is to keep your discipline. If you watch good craps players, you will see that they all play in a similar fashion. The most important aspect to discipline is setting yourself two limits – how much you want to win and how much you are prepared to lose. The top craps players play with a 20% margin, where if they start to play with $1000, they want to win $200, taking the tally to $1200. The initial outlay should depend on your own financial constraints and you should be advised not to gamble on credit.


You should also set up a sound money management system for yourself. The Martingale and Paroli methods are good ways to go about it, but if you have a system that works for you then stick to it. It is imperative that you stick to your limit, no matter how well or how poorly you are doing. This teaches you good discipline in the long run.

You should try to set your single bets to 1/20th of your bankroll at the most. If you want your playing time to go on longer – and it’s also safer – you could even try for 1/50th. Look for a $5 craps table and have a bankroll of about $200. This gives you the space to win, even if you start off badly. You also minimize the risk of maxing out your bankroll too early.

When playing online craps you also have to choose your bets wisely. This includes understanding how the smart bets at the table work. There are very few bets where the house edge is low, and you should take advantage of these. You can find these in the betting guidelines specific to the online casino you are playing in. It is generally a better strategy to stick with pass line bets and come bets which are backed by free odds and place bets on eight and six.

When it comes to the more complicated bets, it is a good idea to hedge your bets. This is a win-lose situation because although hedge betting allows you to control the game a little bit more, the chances of winning really big are diminished.

The most obvious, but least frequently adhered to strategic tip, is to always remain calm. This applies to all games – more specifically when there’s money involved. If you are not completely comfortable with how craps works, there are many online casinos that offer free online craps. Go ahead and play pressure free until you are sure of all the game’s little rules. This will help you to keep a clear head whilst you play the craps game for real as you won’t have to keep thinking about the rules and you can rather concentrate on keeping your luck up!
