If you want to keep the house edge low while you play craps online or offline, focus on the following key bets.
Pass Line & Don’t Pass Wagers – Pays EVEN Money
The pass line wins if the come out roll is 7 or 11, and loses if it’s 2, 3, or 12. If the outcome is any other number, a point is established at that value, and the wager remains on the table until the point is rolled again (a win) or a 7 is rolled (a lose).
The don’t pass wins if the come out roll is 2 or 3 and loses if it’s 7 or 11. If the outcome is 12, the bet is pushed.
Come & Don’t Come Bets – Pays EVEN Money
If the first roll is a 7 or 11, the come bet wins. If it’s a 2, 3, or 12, the come bet loses. Any other number becomes the point for your come wager.
If the first roll is a 7 or 11, the don’t come bet loses. If it’s a 2 or 3, it’s a win. Any other number becomes the point for the don’t come wager.
These are a bit like side bets that can be made after a point is established, placed on a specific outcome of a roll. They are essentially extensions of each of the pass line odds, don’t pass odds, come odds, and don’t come odds. A player would place this bet to complement a main bet in the point phase.
