Seven Reasons Why YOU Should Play Craps!
28 May 2000
By Larry Edell
Craps is suddenly enjoying a new found popularity in casinos due to a
number of different factors--the main one being the crackdown on
blackjack professionals. A lot of people are turning to the craps tables
and finding that their wins there, plus the easy availability of comps,
make craps the perfect game to play! Here are seven reasons why craps
should be YOUR game.
The player controls the game. You can ask for the same (or different)
dice, set them in any way you want to before shooting, bargain with
the dealers for better odds than advertised, ask for the table limit
to be suspended, and make unadvertised "call" bets! Where else can you
have this much fun?
Many of the bets have a casino advantage of under 2%. Some of the more
popular bets are pass line with maximum odds, don't pass with maximum
odds, come bet with maximum odds, and don't come bet with maximum
odds. If you play at a 100X odds table, the casino advantage here is
only 0.02% or less! Where else can you find a better deal than that?
You can increase your money by 900% in just two rolls. Bet just one
lowly dollar on the two or twelve. If it wins you get $30. Let the $30
ride and if it wins you get $900. You've turned $1 into $900 in less
than a minute! It's highly unlikely, but where else can you possibly
win this kind of money in such a short amount of time?
You can make money just by riding along with a good shooter. Look for
someone who makes small $5 bets while other people are shooting, but
increases his bets to $25 (or more) when he is the shooter. Maybe he
has a craps table at home and practices, or maybe he is a psychic, who
knows? But when he bets, you should bet the same way he does. When he
wins, you will also. Where else can you make money using someone
You get a lot of comps playing craps. Buy in with a large amount and
make a big first bet. Also play at a casino that gives you credit for
your spread instead of your individual bets. You can end up with a
FREE room, a FREE show and FREE meals! Where else can you get so much
There are long, profitable streaks in craps. A shooter can hold the
dice for an hour, and everyone at the table cleans up. Once you learn
how to recognize these streaks by charting the tables, you can hang on
and be betting black chips before you know it! Where else can you get
this mix of pure excitement plus constantly increasing profits?
Craps is a people-oriented game. You can talk to the gamblers next to
you, and the dealers as well. Ask them how the table is going. Talk to
everyone. Ask if they're good shooters. Try to notice if there are any
don't bettors and how they're doing, especially if you're a don't
bettor yourself. Where else can you make friends and money at the same
Craps is a wonderful, exciting, profitable game for any casino-goer.
Are you are tired of the hassles and changing rules at the blackjack
tables? Are you tired of getting no profits and no comps at roulette?
Maybe you should give craps a try! It gives you real player control, the
possibility of very high profits, a very low casino edge, the ability to
ride along with someone else's skills, lots of easy-to-get comps,
occasional long money-making streaks, and the ability to determine how
the table is going by talking to the other players.
Where else can you find a better game than that?
