Next, we offer the margin that the house has in the most popular craps bets, in this way you can know what bets should be made at the table when rolling the dice online. It is not necessary, but we want to remind you again that the higher the house edge, the lower the chances that you will win and, therefore, the more chances you have of losing the money.
- The Field or Field
- Big 6-Big 8
- Craps 2/Craps 12
- Any 7 or Any 7
Keep in mind that these bets are what are called simple and are the ones that offer the most profit margin to the online casino.
Field bets are placed on the long sections on each side of the table. This is a one-roll bet, and you will win if your next roll is a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, or 12. Here you win 1:1 if you get a 3, 4, 9, 10, or 11, and a little more if you get a 2 or 12. You lose if you get 5, 6, 7, or 8.
Bet Big 6/ Big 8
Big 6 and Big 8 are bets that pay the same amount that is bet, but the odds are extremely low, compared to other bets. Our recommendation is that you avoid these two options.
The horn bet is a ”proposition bet” (such as big 6 and big 8) that works like four bets in one, and here you will bet one unit on each number. However, horn high is played more often, with 5 units instead of 4. For example, if you bet 5, one unit will go to 2, 3, 11, and 12, and the fifth unit will be added to any of the above. The payout is 4:1 for 3 or 11 or 7.5:1 for 2 or 12. In this case, you will lose if you hit any other number.
Aces/2 or Boxcars/12
Either of these bets pays 30:1. Aces you win if you roll a 2, and Boxcars if you roll a 12. Any other number means loss.
In this case, you win if you get a 7, but you lose with any other number. The payout is normally 7:1.
There is a bet that is not even usually included in the table and that even some casinos have stopped offering it due to its really low house advantage, this is the Odds Bet.
Bets of Odds or Odds Bet
Casino staff does not usually ask you if you want to place an Odds Bet as it is the one that offers you the least profit. An Odds Bet is a side bet that is placed in addition to the simple bet or the well-known Pass Line/Don’t Pass Line bet.
The most beneficial bets for you (Come, Don’t Come, Pass, and Don’t Pass) can be supported by Odds Bets, as long as the casino where they are played accepts them.
Normally, Odds Bets are limited to two or three times the original. For example, if a 10 bucks Pass Line bet has been made, you could also place another 20 bucks bets as a 2X Odds bet. The limit of the casinos in this type of Odds Bets exceeds these amounts in very few and rare exceptions
