This is the 9th tip in our eBook How to Play Craps – 11 Rolls to Win.

Your best bet when it comes to craps is the one with the smallest house advantage.

Some people believe in craps strategies and betting systems to gain advantages. However, no system or craps strategies can be consistent in a game of pure chance…some players still believe it gives them an edge.

Try them out for yourself!

  • Martingale System– You start by betting a given amount, let’s say $1, and then you double your bet whenever you lose. When you win, you start over at the initial amount. The idea is to realize a net win equal to the initial amount after every eventual win. However, the system typically fails because you will most likely run out of money from having to double your bet when you are caught in a losing streak. Or you will be unable to bet the amount dictated because it exceeds the maximum bet allowed by the casino. This system also only yields a profit equal to the initial bet amount every time the player wins. If the initial amount is small, the payout from each Martingale sequence will be equally small.
  • Gambler’s fallacy– This betting system is the belief that past dice rolls influence the probabilities of future dice rolls. For example, if a 10 has not been rolled in several rolls, it is believed to have a better chance of being rolled. This is not true as each roll has a 1/18th chance of being a 10, regardless of previous rolls, so this fallacy does not hold true and is just an illusion.
  • Dice setting or dice control– Some craps players believe that if they “set” the dice in a particular orientation, and then throw them in a certain way that they will influence the way the dice land. The theory is believed that if the dice are stacked and thrown the same way every time, that they will have the same or similar values every time. This strategy is a bit more plausible than the others, because if it were possible to alter the probabilities of each outcome, then a winning betting system could be devised. It’s not that easy, however, casinos do take steps to prevent this betting strategy. In most casino craps, dice are usually required to hit the back wall of the table, that is covered with an angular texture which makes it hard to control spins.
