The game of Craps is extremely exciting. If you have not played it, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. The best way to play Craps is at a brick and mortar casino. There’s just something about the Craps table that brings excitement. If you are at a good table, everyone will be talking, yelling and high fiving each other in enjoyment. Craps has the best casino atmosphere of any game. Today, we are going to talk about some tips to help you save money and win more often.

Tip One

The first tip is to stay away from the prop area. This area is located in the center of the table. It contains the hardways, horn, any Craps, any seven and other wagers. This is where the casino makes their money. The prop bets look like they pay well, but they don’t. It’s best to take that money and put it back in the rack or place a number with it. You will get much better returns.

Tip Two

Our second tip has to do with passline wagers. Always, and I mean always, take odds on your passline wagers. It’s really simple. If you are not going to take your odds on the passline, then don’t play it. You are not doing yourself any favors by playing just a flat bet on the passline. I recommend taking at least double odds (many houses go up to 100x odds). If you don’t know what the proper odds are, ask the dealer. If you are playing online, check with the casino.

Tip Three

Next up is passline progression betting. Under no circumstances should you ever bet in a progressive manner on the passline when you are losing. Just because someone 7’s out, doesn’t mean the next person will hit a point. It’s just as likely to have 10 point winners in a row as it is to have 10 seven outs in a row. This type of betting kills more system style Craps players than almost anything else.

Tip Four

Our final tip has to do with live Craps games. When you are playing at a live Craps game, pay attention to the people shooting the dice. Make a mental note (or carry a notepad if you need to) about the shooting ability of every shooter. There are some shooters out there that are heavy Craps players and constantly throw fairly well. There are also people who just can’t get a clue and almost always come up empty. By making little tweaks here and there you could end up making a lot more money.

There you have it. Four great Craps tips that you can use right now to improve your overall experience and bankroll. Now, go out there and have some fun playing the exciting game of Craps.
