 Creative Craps Betting

Craps is one of the most complicated but enthralling casino games in the world. Laced with numbers betting options and ever changing dynamics, there’s a reason why it’s the favourite choice of rich gamblers across the world.

Once you’ve managed to wrap your head around the change in value of certain numbers, there is a wide range of betting options available to you. However, with some many on offer it can be difficult to know which ones to choose: especially if you’re a novice.

For many people their focus will be on pass line bets during the come out roll and specific number bets when a point has been established. While these are all well and good, there’s one bet that’s seldom taken but actually offers you a great chance of winning.

Odds bets aren’t readily advertised on a craps table, but they are perfectly legal and are fantastic value because they don’t offer the casino any edge. To place an odds bet you must place your chips behind the pass line. At this point you’re allowed to double your opening wager, so if you bet $40 on the pass line you can bet a further $80 in the section behind it.

Odds bets payout at a maximum of 3:2 if the point is 5 or 9, 2:1 if the point is 4 or 10 and 6:5 if the point is 6 or 8. These returns are fantastic if you’re looking to mix things up and make some more creative craps bets.

To supplement this strategy you can continue to make pass line bets and enjoy incremental returns on your investment. Indeed, with a reward of 1:1 for every correct bet, pass line wagers will help keep your bottom-line steady whilst you aim for additional wins.

Craps is a great casino game to play and if you can take advantage of the lesser known propositions such as odds bets you’ll find there’s a lot of money to be made.
