Craps 101 how to play without looking a beginner.

Dear Mark: A column of yours in the past mentioned some of the best bets in the casino. One such bet was the six or eight in craps. Although I have never played the game of craps before, it seems like fun and would be interested giving it a try, especially since some of the group I go gambling with weekly do play it. How do I go about making that bet without looking like a beginner? Jayne M. .. .

Yes, Jayne, craps can be richly enjoyable entertainment, and based on your wanting to stick with one of the best bets the game offers, that being Placing either the six or eight, let's make you look like an expert amongst your gambling associates.

Placing the six or eight, or grabbing a Pass line bet for those so inclined, are really the only wagers you want to make on a crap table. They have a casino edge of 1.5% or lower. Most players who belly up to the crap table are greener than the felt on the table, but by exploiting only the best bet(s) the game offers, you join the less than one percent of players who truly understand dice.

You could ask your friendly dealer how to Place the six or eight, but all you really have to do is walk up to the table, set down $6 ($12 if you're betting both numbers) on the layout and state your preference: "Six (or eight) for six dollars," then cheer on the six or eight to appear before the seven, and you're off to the races. You'll get paid $7 if the six or eight hits, but you'll lose, if the seven appears.

Craps 101 isn't over yet, Jayne. We'll revisit in the future another best bet in the casino, the Pass Line wager, then move you into odds after that, all of which nudges you ever closer to your Winners University diploma.
