There are many reasons why people play craps at an online casino. The biggest (and probably the best) reason is the potential to win large amounts of cash in a very short period of time. While the strategy here is not going to win you huge amounts of cash, it will help you realise small, consistent wins online.
If you know the general rules and understand the game, you are in great shape to play online. If not, you need to start playing online and learn some of the different bets before you take your game to the next level. There are only two bets you need to play online when first starting out.
Start a game and place a pass line bet. Place $5 on the pass line and roll the dice. When your point is established, place your odds behind the line. For the purposes of this example, place $5 behind the line too.
Let’s say on the first, or “come out” roll, you established a point of nine (9), what this means is that you will need to roll a nine again, before the appearance of a seven, in order to win. While you are still learning the rules of the game, this is the only bet you need to make in craps when playing online, unless you want to be a bit more aggressive.
If so, play the field. What this means is that anytime a two, three, four, nine, 10, 11 or 12 is rolled, you win. Don’t play anything else until the online version of the game becomes a little more realistic in the natural appearance of sevens.
It doesn’t get any easier than the above two bets. Pass line with odds and throw in a field bet for “a little more action”. Keep in mind, while the field bet is one of the better bets online, it’s not one of the best bets in the brick and mortar casinos.
