The house advantage keeps casinos running. It is the casino’s edge over the gambler in any gaming activity. It is also the difference between the payout ratio and the likelihood of an outcome. Generally, more likely results pay less than less likely results.
Because craps contains so many various wager types (single roll, multi-roll, place, and proposition), there is no uniform house edge value as there is in slots. So each bet requires its own house edge estimate.
Luckily, the JohnSlots crew has a lot of experience with craps and is willing to conduct some math for our readers. Each bet has a different house edge.
Online vs. live casinos – dice control
By tossing the dice a specific manner, some craps players say they may affect the outcome. Precision shooting entails decreasing rotational force during a throw, preventing the dice from spinning on impact with the opposing wall of the craps table.
While not technically prohibited, utilizing dice control tactics at a casino’s craps tables is frowned upon and may result in a ban. Online gaming does not allow for dice control. The outcome of the dice roll is produced by the craps program.
Best Craps Bets
The arithmetic determines the optimum craps bets. The house advantage should be considered when placing a wager. Here are the top craps bets and why they are the best.
The house edge on this wager is just 1.41 percent. This indicates that for every £100 wagered, you will lose £1.41. Of course, this is a hypothetical long-term estimate, but it supports the Pass line bet.
The Come bet has a house edge of 1.41 percent, which is similar to the Pass line bet.
This wager is ‘against the grain’ of the game and should be made more often. It has a house edge of between 1.36 and 1.4%.
This bet has comparable metrics to the Don’t Pass bet with a house edge of 1.36-1.4%.
The odds bet has no house edge in theory. Nothing. Of course, there is a catch — you must have previously placed a Pass/Don’t Pass bet, exposing you to the house edge. Still, a fun way to increase the ante without the house edge!
6 and/or 8
The player is betting on the specified number coming before a 7. The house edge on a 6 and 8 place bet is 1.52%, which is still minimal. These two outcomes have a 6.2:1 probability of occurring, making them the second most likely.
Don’t put 6 or 8
A placing bet is sometimes known as a ‘No 6′ or ‘No 8′. With a house edge of 1.82 percent, this bet appeals to gamblers who seek a little bit more risk than other bets.
While the table structure helps you comprehend what each bet is called and what you’re betting on, it’s worth taking the time to understand how probability and house edge interact. Making wise bets will become second nature.
