Well, you’ll be surprised to hear that there are quite a few casino secrets that get shared about on any old casino blog, and so we thought we’d share them with you!
So, here they are, the craps secrets that no online casino wants you to know!
Lucky Nugget’s Top Craps Secrets!
1. Don’t bet on other shooters as often!
Let’s be honest, when it comes to playing craps we all want monster hands, huge wins and nights to remember. Unfortunately, they don’t come around very often at all. The average length of a craps shooter’s hand is around eight rolls and unfortunately, wins aren’t made that way. Since, you know, house edge gets in the way of winning all the time – yeah, casinos do that – the expectation is that you’ll only get on a whopping winning streak every now and then.
Well, there’s a tactic called the 5-count in craps that reduces the number of rolls that you bet on other players by 57%. We’re not going to go into detail about the 5-count system, instead we recommend you take a look at this video:
For every bet that you make on a shooter – the name for another player who is rolling the dice – you are playing against the house. There isn’t any difference between playing three bets at once and three separate bets by multiple people, so why double or triple the amounts of bets that you’re involved in?
And sure, the more bets you’re involved in the more fun you’re going to have, but fun doesn’t equal profit – it equals an unhealthy casino bankroll! Follow the advice in the video and you’ll end up with more money than you started with, hopefully.
Basically, follow the above and you’ll end up losing more than you normally would. In turn this will result in more potential wins and ultimately, you’ll have higher odds than you started off with!
2. Manage your bankroll efficiently
Goodness, if you don’t have any money how do you expect to play?
Separate your playing money with your gambling money, and even go as far to separate wins from your starting balance. Once your win balance exceeds your starting balance then either quit or be careful, because you’re in profit!
3. Keep craps bets low in comparison to your bankroll
If you have $20 to play with and you’re gambling pennies then you’re not going to feel a hit when you lose. If you were to play with $2 per bet and you lost a few hands, then you’re going to feel the hit much more.
There have been stories of gamblers who have gone out with thousands of dollars and played huge bets to win big quick. Those gamblers ended up going home empty handed because they weren’t patient. Smaller bets and steady wins are much more likely to occur than say, blasting $2,500 on a single game.
Bet smart and win big!
4. Rhythmic rolling is the key to big wins!!
Some would say that it’s impossible to learn dice throwing, while others will not. Craps is a random game of luck for 95% of people playing. For the small percentage of skilled throwers though, that might not be the case.
Rhythmic rollers have the ability – or so they claim – to change the probabilities of the game. There have been a number of examples; Jimmy P. and the infamous lady of Atlantic City called ‘the Arm’, or Pat DeMuro. They seem to do the same thing over and over again, and win. So, who knows, maybe there is something in it.
Get practising your dice rolls and maybe you’ll be able to avoid those dreadful 7s.
