How The Free Odds Bet Works In Craps

November 7, 2010

Craps is an interesting casino game and probably the most thrilling out of all    . When playing  craps you    need to approach the game with a plan and know when to bet and on what bets to place  .


A very  useful options    for a craps player is the free odds bet. This is a bet where the house actually doesn’t have  edge over you. It is cleverly disguised in online casinos as just the odds bet.


With some of the other bets out there the house edge increases dramatically and your odds of winning go down way to much  . The Free odds bets are made after your first bet on the pass line has been placed and the point has been  established  .


This bet is the only bet you would be able to place in any of the games at casino  where the odds of winning the bet is equal to the payoff. So the larger the amount that you wager  , the better your chances of making a larger profit.


 Always  make sure that you place your bets carefully in a casino craps game. There are some simple things you can do to ensure you don’t miss out on anything  . For example if you are getting 3 to 2 odds, always place bets in multiples of 2. The reason for this is that you will most often get paid in full round numbers. So if you bet $20 you will win $30, but if you bet $19 you will win $28.50, but only get paid $28. It looks small , but you are slowly killing youself.


There are two other interesting bets namely double odds and three unit bets. With online casino craps you will often get offered the option to place a double odds bet after the pass line.


The three unit bet option allows you to place an odds bet larger than your pass line bet if you were betting in three unit increments.


There are    other betting traps you need to steer clear of when you play online craps, with the house edge being so big that you would just be killing yourself.
