About Craps

Craps is a game of chance; sometimes you win sometimes you lose. But casinos are not prepared to rely on chance when it comes to business; they will try to secure a certain edge against the players. The edge is built-in into the game to benefit the casino. Craps is a game where the player has to rely on luck, play for excitement and enjoy a good time.

How To Win At Craps

Craps Strategy

Unfortunately, there is no craps strategies that can give you the edge against the house. What you can do, however, is to reduce the house edge to a minimum and get as much enjoyment as possible out of your craps session.

Among all the bets that are available in Craps, some offer worse odds than others, some much worse. On the other hand, some bets give you odds that make you more or less even money against the house. If you can find these bets and stick to them in the midst of chaotic Craps action, your money will last longer, and you may very well leave the casino a winner.
