How to Play Craps and Win!

Online casinos are the new hype of the Internet, and one of the biggest games is roulette. Roulette has become faster and more accessible due to this online phenomenon, and this has given people from all around the world the chance to test their theories and strategies at an accelerated pace.

The ability to spin the wheel quickly and avoid the animation means you can quickly find streaks and bet in the opposite direction for a better chance of winning.

Of course the downside to online roulette is the ability to place bets sometimes to easily and get carried away. While you don't want to get emotionally involved in your gambling, you also don't want to forget that it is real money you are betting with and not fake money in some game.

So do people actually win at online roulette or are you better off in a casino.

Casinos are defiantly more for atmosphere and environment, I would not take an advanced system to a casino, so if you are looking for a little extra cash out of a roulette system then online is the way to go. And yes many people make money online every day.

Most people who profit from online roulette have a system or software to takes care of the wagers, but they also keep their accounts small for two reasons.

One is so they will never loose to much money when the system fails, and second is so not to attract attention to the account.

You will also find that most people who play consistently will have accounts at several casinos, and move around constantly so they don't attract attention.

So yes it is possible to win at online roulette, but every system will eventually fail so taking the right precautions to preserve as much profit as possible is necessary in any online endeavor.

Software can be a great tool to help with these precautions.

When I go to Vegas I usually spend most of my time playing poker but if I do want to take a shot at some table games it’s going to be Craps. Some of my fondest memories at a casino are playing Craps. When the table is hot there is nothing better. In this article I’ll give you a basic strategy that will give you the best chance at leaving the table with more chips than you bought in for.
A lot of people are intimidated by the craps table and therefore avoid it. For some reason a lot of people think it’s a complicated game. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Craps is a very simple game. Lets start with the basics.
The initial roll is called the come out roll. This is where the point is established. When you roll the dice the number is going to be between 2 and 12. Here the three things that are possible on the come out roll:
Once a point is established it’s as simple as rolling that number again before you roll a 7. For example if the point is established as a 6 then you will keep rolling the dice until you either roll a 6 and win or roll a 7 and lose. There are a ton of other bets you can make but this is the basic Craps strategy.
This is where you want to place your initial bet. For easy math let’s say it’s a $10 minimum table and you put down $10. You or the shooter(the person rolling the dice) rolls a 7 on the come out. Guess what? Everyone cheers and you get paid $10 by the dealer. The great thing about Craps is all the players are on the same team against the casino. There is an exception to this and I’ll address that later but for now let’s dive further into proper strategy for you to win some money.
Assume for now that on the next roll we still have our $10 on the pass line and the shooter rolls a 10. Now the point becomes 10 and the shooter must roll the 10 again before he rolls a 7. Now we have the option to take odds on our 10. You definitely want to take the odds because they are free. That means that the casino has no edge on this bet. You want to take the maximum odds. For most casinos here are the max odds:
So you are going to toss $30 to the dealer and say “odds on my 10 please.” You now have $40 in play and here’s what you’ll win if the shooter rolls a 10:
Collect your $70 in winnings and your $30 odds bet and put it in the rack. It’s that easy! Unless of course the shooter rolls a 7 and in that case you would lose $40. In a similar scenario if your point was 5 or 9 you would have been paid 3 to 2 on your odds bet of $40 which would also equal $60 and on a 6 or 8 you are being paid 6 to 5 on your $50 odds bet which again would be $60. The casino does this to make it easier for their dealers. The odds payout will be the same amount no matter which number you hit as long as you took max odds.
On the pass line bet in Craps the casino gets a 1.4% edge. Meaning that over time after hundreds or thousands or rolls the casino is going to win on average $1.40 for every $100 that is bet. It’s simple math and it’s the reason they can build those beautiful hotels and can afford to comp you a free room if you play long enough. So why take max odds? Because is you do you lower the house edge to about 0.7% and cut in half their edge. That is as good of a bet you are going to find in the casino unless you can count cards in blackjack and I’m guessing you can’t or you wouldn’t be reading this article. By taking the max free odds you can only expect to lose $.70 over time for every $100 you bet. That’s pretty cheap entertainment if you factor in that the cocktail waitress is going to bring you as many free drinks as you want.
Always sign up for the casino’s players club and take advantage of comps or freebies the casino is willing to reward you with for gambling with them. One thing you can do to help your comps is to buy in for more than you are willing to gamble with. For example, I never buy in for less than $1,000 even though the way I am playing I only need about $300. The secret to being profitable in Craps is to quit while you’re ahead. Groundbreaking stuff I know but it’s really as easy as that. Craps is a very streaky game. The table will go cold, hot, and choppy. When the table is cold quit playing. Take a break or find another table but when you go to the next table buy in for $1,000 again and if you do that 4 or 5 times in a day the casino may think your bankroll is much bigger that it actually is and be willing to bring you back by sending you a free room in the mail. It may be a minor thing but every little thing helps. As long as the table is hot keep playing and you might even want to bump up your bets a little if it gets real hot but as soon as it cools down take your profits and cash out. Stay away from other bets such as the field or other one roll bets on the table. These are called sucker bets for a reason. Only play the pass line with full odds.
