Craps : Game Tips & Strategies

Here are five popular and easy to remember strategies, keep in mind however, that Craps is definitely a game of chance.

STRATEGY #1: Classic Regression

To make a profit on one hit.
In this strategy, you wait until the shooter has made his/her point before placing your bets. After the Point is made you will place two units or $12.00 on both the 6 and 8. After one hit, you will ask the Dealer to come down one unit on both the 6 & 8.

You now have a $2.00 profit and can no longer get hurt by the Seven. In addition, you now have $12.00 working for you. After another hit, bring down all bets and wait for the roller to make his/her point or 7 out, then start the process over.

On two hits your net profit is: $21.00. Now depending on how confident you are, you can come down after the first hit profiting $14.00 or keep betting on the 6 & 8. If you prefer to keep your bets riding make sure that both the 6 & 8 are covered.

Behind the Strategy:
There are ten combined ways to make a 6 and 8 and six combined ways for a seven

STRATEGY #2: "Three Point Molly"

To have three numbers working for you at all times.
In this strategy you will make a Pass Line bet and two "Come bets".
-Make a Pass Line bet.
-Backup your Pass Line bet with single or double odds.
-Make a Come Line bet.
-Backup each Come Bets with single or double odds (two Come bets maximum).
-When one of your Come Bets wins, place another Come Bets.
-Continue this process until the shooter makes his/her Point or Seven-Out.

Behind the Theory:
Each times you make a Come Bet you are protecting your Pass Line bets and taking advantage of a hot roller.

STRATEGY #3: "Anything But Seven"

To win on any number thrown except a Seven.
-Don't place any bets on the Don't Pass or Pass Line, but wait until a point has been established.
-Place two units on 5, 6, & 8.
-Place one unit on the Field.

This method is a little riskier than the previous strategies, since your total monetary risk is: $39.00. Therefore, it is suggested that you remove all bets after three rolls. Should the shooter hold the dice for at least three rolls, you will stand to win anything from $15.00-$27.00(more if the numbers 2 or 12 are rolled).

Behind The Strategy:
The average roller rolls the dice 4 to 6 times before rolling a 7.

STRATEGY #4: "68 Play"

1: Don't make a Pass Line or Don't Pass Line bet rather wait until a "POINT" is made.
2: Wait till the shooter rolls the dice one more time.
3: "PLACE" $18.00 on both the 6 & 8 for a total investment of $36.00
4: Once a 6 or 8 is made ask the dealer for $22.00 inside
5: On the next hit, ask the dealer to take down the 5 and 9
6: Play out the roll for three additional rolls and then bring down the 6 & 8

The Breakdown:
- After First Hit you will receive: $21.00
- Takedown to 22 inside $14.00
- Your total exposure after the first hit is $1.00. But now you have $22.00 working for you.
- The second hit will produce $7.00 plus the return of $10.00 from the take down of 5 and 9
- With total two hits you have a $16.00 profit and still have $12.00 working. At this "POINT", you can continue to have the 6 & 8 working or take down your $12.00.

If the shooter has not made a 6 or 8 and/or his "POINT" by the fourth roll, bring down all bets and wait for the next shooter. If you feel uncomfortable laying $36.00 you can start with $24.00. If you feel good about the shooter you may want to keep the 5 and 9 up for more than one roll.

STRATEGY #5: Regressive/Pressing Methods

One of the biggest mistake I have witness from player is "Pressing" (letting your winnings ride) their bets too soon. It is my firm belief that "Pressing" should only occur after the initial investment has been recuperated.
1: Wait for the shooter to make his/her "POINT"
2: "PLACE" $18.00 on both the 6 & 8
3: After the first hit, ask for $22.00 inside
4: After the second hit, remove the 5 & 9
5: After the third hit, put back the 5 & 9
6: After the fourth hit press the 6 & 8 to $12.00 each
7: After the fifth hit; go to Step #2.

Here Is The Breakdown:
After First Hit you will receive $21.00 and $14.00 from the takedown to 22 inside. Funds at risk are $1.00.
After Second Hit you will receive $7.00 and $10.00 from removing the 5 & 9
Total Profits after two hits: $16.00 - Money Working: $12.00
