Though to get the best chances of winning, you should really learn the Free Odds bet too. The player wins evenmoney if a 3, 4, 9, 10, or 11 is rolled. On most tables a 2 pays double and 12 paystriple. The player loses if a 5, 6, 7, or 8 is thrown. The house edge is a modest 2. The player is betting that thePlaced number will roll before a 7 rolls. This bet can be made at any time, butis usually made after a point number is already established.
The house edge onBuy bets is 4. The house edge on prop bets ranges between Now for the bad news: So, now you know. And, yes, there will be a quiz. But quizzes about craps are the most fun kind of quizzes. When the button is off I like to play the pass line, and horn bets. Well guess what the stick man moved my bets to the world bets pays 5 to 1. I asked why are you doing this? After the button was off again I tired to play my horn bets again, well guess what the moved me to world, and guess what I hit Then they paid me 5 to 1, and I was pissed, I said I would like to talk to the pit boss.
Explained what was going and the pit boss said this to me. Many players who make pass line bets can't afford to take any odds or full odds behind the bet once the number is established. You can place the odds if the person allows you. The casino has no edge on the odds and in the long run your expectation is to break even.
That could be a lot of casino fun with no expected cost! You don't want to win a bet only to have the man or woman scoop it up and keep it. Always put the least allowed on the don't pass or the don't come and the most in odds behind it. The house will have a 1.
The same advice applies to this bet which comes in with a 1. In multiples of six dollars, placing the six or eight is the only worthwhile place-to-win bet on the table as the casino has a rather reasonable 1.
You'll be paid seven dollars for your six dollar bet when the number hits. You place five dollars on the table and say: The house edge is 1. The house edge is 2. You throw down eight dollars and place the above numbers to lose. If the seven shows, you win five dollars. Normally the placing of the four or 10 has a hefty house edge of 6.
This latter bet reduces the house edge to 2. It still isn't a good bet but it's a heck of a lot better than just placing it. Of course, you have to be able to afford it. Some casinos allow you to buy the four and only pay the commission if it wins.
This is another wonderful way to reduce the house edge on an otherwise bad bet. Some casinos now allow the buying of the four or 10 and only paying the commission if you win. This reduces the house edge to around 1. Usually the Field is not a good bet, but when the 2 or 12 is returning three to one, instead of the usual two to one, the house edge drops to 2.
