Craps - The Online Casino Edge
Playing craps in Internet Casinos also has some distinct advantages over the games offered in “real world” casinos. The tables at online craps games are never too full or overcrowded and are available to players around the clock.
How to Play Online Craps
Just as in craps games in land-based casinos, a game of online craps starts with the players making “pass line” bets. Players can bet on the “pass line” or the “don’t pass line”. After players make their pass line bets, the “shooter” (the player holding the dice) making a “come out roll”.
If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11 on his come out roll, the “pass line” bets win and the “don’t pass line” bets lose.
If the shooter rolls a 2, 3, or 12 on his come out roll, the “pass line” bets lose and the “don’t pass line” bets win.
If the shooter rolls any other number, that number becomes the “point”.
The shooter continues to roll the dice until he rolls either the “point” number again, or he rolls a 7.
If he rolls the “point” number again, the “pass line” bets win and the “don’t pass line” bets lose.
If he rolls a 7 before he rolls the “point” number again, the “pass line” bets lose and the “don’t pass line” bets win.
In land-based craps, once a shooter completes his play, another player becomes the new shooter. In online craps, the player’s options may vary.
Online Craps Tips
The Gambling Planet Guide to Online Craps also offers some easy-to-use tips to get you started on the winning path.
Tip #1: When you do start to play online craps for real money, start at small stakes. Smaller bets allow you to stretch out your bankroll; the wins won’t be as big, but the losses won’t hurt as much.
Tip #2: Stick with the “pass/don’t pass” and “come/don’t come” bets at the start. These are the easiest bets to make in online craps and have the lowest “house edge”.
Tip #3: If you don’t understand the odds of a bet, don’t put your money on it! Some bets in online craps may look like fun and give high payouts, but the odds often don’t justify the risk.
Tip #4: Luck can come in streaks at an online craps table. If you’re on a hot streak, raise your bets and “ride the rush”. If the dice are turning against you, keep your bets low and save your bankroll.
