During a pandemic, there are not many land casinos open, but many online casinos are not only open but have expanded their offerings. Now for the first time, you can play craps online. Not a video version of craps and not a way for you to put your hand through the screen to practice dice control but a mechanical arm that throws the dice and a stickman. It is far from the loud craps tables with shooters, dice setters, curious noobs that saw craps in a movie.
Online Advantage Play?
While you are not going to get an advantage by setting the dice you can get your craps fix while following social distancing. There are a few different rules to this version of online craps but it is in Degenbet´s opinion it is the best live dealer game out there. For those of you that have never played craps then here is your chance to learn. One reason that craps is attractive is that some of the bets on the craps table have some of the lowest house edge in the casino. The house edge on the Don’t Pass and Don’t Come bets are 1.36% and 0% on the 1x odds bet reducing the edge to 0.682%. A bet on the Banker in Baccarat with an edge of 1.06% is the only bet with less of an edge.
How to play
*Wait until the puck is in the off position
*Place a bet on the “Don´t Pass Bar”
*On the next roll(come out roll) if there is a 7 or 11 you lose/if there is a 2 or 3 you win/if there is a 12 it is a push
*If any other number besides 7,11,2,3 or 12 is rolled a point has been established and the puck moves to that number
*Now the don’t pass wins on a 7 and loses on the point number six
*As soon as a point has been established you can “add odds” make an extra bet without and edge, take advantage of this
These are the basics of how to play craps and how to play the don’t pass
The mechanical craps arm has to be refilled by the stickman. The dice are set to how they fall – EXCEPT- if it was a seven, it has to be changed. There still needs to be research if the dice setting effects the roll (launch) by the machine.
