Be smart, play smart, and learn how to play craps the right way!
In my other article,Winning Systems, I address the fact that there’s no such thing as a long-term craps “winning system” for the player. It’s a mathematical fact that a player cannot gain an advantage over the house using any combination of bets or bet amounts. Period. Yet I see book after book and article after article explaining a wide variety of systems that so-called “craps pros” use to consistently beat the house. It irritates me knowing that the gambling world recognizes some of these authors as craps “experts.” It irritates me when I read something from a well-respected so-called craps expert who, in reality, spreads false hope instead of fact. It irritates me knowing the Industry acknowledges and flaunts these people as skilled and knowledgeable players. It irritates me knowing the Industry actually pays them (bookmakers) for their pessimism. It irritates me knowing the bookmakers are always everyone’s favorite target. But, it would be nice knowing the when the bookmakers are bluffing.
You know, instead of beating the house time and time again with your so-called craps system, you’re simply stopping the bleeding by betting the house away. It’s simple. The difference between a sound so-called craps system and a sound strategy is a sound strategy bets with discipline. Any sound so-called craps system offers no more than a list of single numbers; it offers no more than hints to slow-play certain bets, or promise you will win with a cool trick. At best, your so-called system, the sound so-called system, is a light-weight progression of guesses and hunches. In other words, it is a system that if followed strictly would help you lose money, not win any more.
Despite the fact that there is no such thing as a long-term craps system, there are, indeed, plenty of simple rules that any player can permanently apply to any craps table and remain profitable. These rules are not complicated, nor are they difficult to follow. They simply require you to be familiar with the odds, or probability, of certain bets, and being able to place these bets with common sense. Once the board comes out, you no longer have to guess the dice. Now you just have to decide which number, color, or odd or even.
One rule that applies to any game in Naga303, and not just to craps, is to never believe a streak of good dice will continue. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, or 11 is the most common dice combinations that do not end in either 6 or 8. Therefore, you will not want to bet these numbers. However, if the shooter is hot, and rolling good numbers, then you might want to consider betting the numbers. However, if the shooter is cold, and rolling bad numbers, then it is time to move on and take a break.
Be aware that other players are playing the same table as you are, and they are human beings. They are probably batting their own balls as well, and just as likely, are on a hot or cold streak. Watch how other players are betting and remember that if you notice a pattern, then you can bet with them to win. Maybe you can even take advantage of a double-digit roll just to cancel out that streak of bad dice rolls you just experienced!
There are quite a few bets available, but the best bet by far is betting on the shooter’s point. Betting on the shooter’s point isGRAAAL!
