How? Check out the
o Just make these two
outstanding craps wagers. Nothing more. Learn how
to make a Pass Line bet or how to Place the 6 or
8. Both of these wagers have house advantage of
less than 1.5%, making them one of the best bets
in the casino.
o Stay away from all
those proposition bets in the center of the layout.
The dealer who is barking their performance is doing
nothing more than inducing play on wagers that are
all "house bets", carrying a casino advantage
as high as 16%.
o Once you learn how
the Odds wager works (another column, another day),
never make a Line or Come bet that you are not willing
to back up with full odds.
o If the table minimum
is way over your head, you shouldn't be on that
game. Bet with your head, not over it.
o If you need help,
ask a dealer. Most will be willing and able to help
o You are responsible
to pick up your winnings. As they say, "They
lay, they play."
o A Pass Line bet with
two Come bets is plenty of action on this energetic
game. Don't get so caught up in the game that you
start throwing money at the dealer for his "requested
(high house percentage) bets."
o Do not try to hand
cash to the dealer to make change. The dealer is
not allowed to take any cash or chips directly from
the customer. You need to place your money on the
layout, before the shooter gets the dice, and ask
the dealer for "change only."
o Some wagers like
Pass/Don't Pass bets, Odds, Come wagers, the Big
6/8 or Field bets can be made by you. On the other
wagers, place your money on the layout and ask the
dealer to make those bets for you.
o Keep your hands off
the table and out of the way of the dice being thrown.
You do not want to disrupt the game by altering
the toss with your hands.
o Tables have rails
all the way around for storing your gaming chips.
Use them. Also, underneath, there is shelving for
o If you are the shooter,
give the dice a good toss across the table. Never
try to slide dice across the layout thinking you
can control the outcome. The first time the boxman
will call out, "No roll." The second time,
possibly some token punishment like a slapped wrist.
The third-adios Sally.
o If you are a Don't
Pass better, don't scream out, "Come on, seven!"
Betting against the majority of players is bad enough,
but rooting against them and gloating after a win
is awful form.
