Craps Betting Strategy for the Online Casino - Saturday 12th of March 2005

This week Online Casino Reports brings you useful strategy information about craps. Whether you play at online casinos or land based casinos you??re sure to find craps games available. Craps is one of the more popular casino games and at real casinos it usually attracts large, hooting crowds. It??s a high paced online casino game that relies on the rolling of die. Although there is no conceivable way to improve the odds of specific numbers being rolled, the craps player can try to understand the different ways of betting. When playing craps at an online casino it??s important to understand exactly how the game is played and what bets offer what odds. We??ve posted a few key craps betting strategies to help you succeed when playing at your favorite online casino. The following are two important types of bets to understand when playing craps: The Taking the Odds bet and the Laying the Odds bet. The Taking the Odds bet is an important one to know. When playing craps at an online casino, whenever a point number is established and you??ve made a pass line bet you can choose to take the odds by increasing the amount bet on the point number being rolled before a seven. This is what??s known as Taking the Odds. The amount you can increase depends completely on the point number rolled. This can be determined as follows: Point number 4, 5, 9, 10 3x original Pass Line Bet Point number 6, 8 4,5x original Pass Line Bet Also, when playing craps at the online casino, the payout when playing an odds bet winning (being rolled before a 7) depends on what the point number is. Points 4 and 10 2 to 1 Points 5 and 9 3 to 2 Points 6 and 8 pay 6 to 5 The other type of betting that is good to know when playing online casino craps is the Laying the Odds bet. This is the opposite of the previous bet. The Laying the odds bets are placed based on don??t pass line bets. Therefore the strategy is to try to roll a seven before the point number established is rolled. In this case the odds bet limits and payouts are as follows: Point number 4, 10 6x original Don??t Pass Line Bet Point number 5, 9 4,5x original Don??t Pass Line Bet Point number 6, 8 3,6x original Don??t Pass Line Bet Also, with the laying the odds bet, winning is based on what the point number is: Points 4 and 10 1 to 2 Points 5 and 9 2 to 3 Points 6 and 8 pay 5 to 6 We hope you succeed at online casino craps and that these betting strategies give you a clear idea of your odds of winning when playing craps at the online casinos. Best of luck!
