Some of the best kept secrets of the game of craps are not well known outside of the casino, and getting them is a matter of looking inside the codes and reading the percentages true.

In craps the casino counts cards in a manner similar to blackjack, and in blackjack the dealer increments a card’s worth based on the face up card, adding all face up cards as well as cards from 2, 3 and 4, making higher cards more valuable than lower ones. Craps cards are dealt in a sequence, each with their own numeric value (2 through 10), and when an entity within the card is rolled, the entity’s value is changed. A $2 can be turned into a $4, and a $10 can turn into a $8. This process is called rolling the dice.

The casino takes averse approach to card counting in craps, relying on plain old human nature to make the odds work in their favor. Lose a $1 bet and you’ll probably lose a $10 bet, for example.

The best way to win at craps is not to count, but to be aware of the number opportunities you have in a craps session. The great thing about counting in craps is that you don’t have to make any judgments, rely on your memory and be accurate at the same time.

The house edge in craps is about 2.3% on the pass line (don’t pass), 2.5% on the don’t pass (come out) and 4.6% on the come out (closest to craps). That said, you can win at craps, if you know what to do, it’s not impossible.

A few craps strategies will keep you from walking away from a $5 pass line bet with an edge. First, it’s important toiana play the don’t pass and don’t come bets. The reason for this is you have about a 32% chance of making a win (about the same for the don’t pass and come bets). With the don’t pass bet, you can get about a 30% return on your money. Meanwhile, the don’t come bet can bring the return up to 40%.

While you’re waiting for the seven to show, you can do one of two things. You can let the dealer roll the dice until the point is established (the seven appears), or you can take a chance at beating the house by attempting to ” Dewalive ” the dice.

Let the dealer place a bet for you on the box marked off by the ” Pass Line” or “Don’t Pass Line”. Then, when either number is thrown, win or lose, you place your bet again, either on the same box (the same ” Pass Line” or “Don’t Pass Line”) or a different box (the same “Pass Line” or “Don’t Pass Line”).

After the come-out roll, you can tell if you lost by looking at the box marked “Out” (the box marked “Out” on the Don’t Pass Line) or the box marked “In” (the box marked “In” on the Don’t Pass Line). If you’re betting the Pass Line, you can look at the box marked “Out” to see if the shooter rolled a number. If the shooter rolled a number, you’ll have a loss. If the shooter didn’t throw a number, you’ll win.
