This article assumes that you already have a decent knowledge of the game. If not, at the end of this article I have a resource that should be of great help. For now, I’m going to share with you a simple craps betting strategy that should help keep you ahead of the house and out of the crap house…pardon the pun. I hope you find this helpful.

Okay, let’s explain the theory behind the strategy. Craps, assuming that you know how to play the game properly, is about an even game of chance with the house having a slight edge. In other words, mathematically, out of two come out rolls, on average, you will win one and lose one. If this holds true, then the only way to beat the house is for them to take less money from you when you lose and give you more money when you win. There is a simple strategy that will do just that.

Let’s assume we’re playing at a \$10 minimum craps table. In that case, what we want to do is bet \$20 on our first come out roll. You’ll see why in a second. Let’s assume that we win that first come out roll. It is actually a statistical fact that 70% of the people are up on the casinos at one time or another but the reason they lose is because they keep betting. So, given we have now won \$20, what we want to do, on our come out roll, is drop our bet down to the table minimum, or \$10.

Take a look at what happens if we lose that bet. We won the first bet at \$20, lost the second bet at \$10. We’ve played the house even, having won one and lost one, and YET…we are \$10 up on them. Okay, get it? Do you see how powerful this system is? In a choppy table of win-lose-win-lose, you can really clean up. This will work for either pass or don’t pass betting.

The rest of the progression goes like this…\$15, \$20, \$25, \$30, \$35…and so on until you lose. Then you start all over again at \$20 dropping down to \$10 after a win. If you lose three straight, you walk away from the table.

In my signature is a review of a great resource that will have you playing craps like a pro. In the meantime, give this little betting system a spin. I think you will find it quite rewarding.
