Last but not least, do not plan to win with every roll of the dice. Here is a flow chart I made myself showing how to adjudicate a pass bet. To earn substantial profit on just two hits. This is why they lure us back with lobster and luxury suites. Never put up another bet on a come out after a point is made, no matter how hot the roller. After a second hit, bring down all your wagers and wait for the shooter to roll the point or a 7. Casinos want you to lose track of time so you play for as long as possible.

The whole concept of craps obviously for right players is to avoid the 7 after the come out roll. Even on the come out roll, which is really no different than any other roll as far as the odds for a 7 showing, is a factor in my method.
When the numbers have two units or more I will press 2 numbers 1 unit each. Obviously the exposure is before the first hit, anything after that you are using the casino's money. The reason I do not play the pass-line is that the return, even with back-up odds, is less than if you put that full amount, pass-line bet plus odds bet directly placed on the number itself. First watch the table for complete circles. Sense a hot roll. Play 1 or 2 rolls only. This guarantees a win. After 2 rolls stop playing for that day or in that casino for that day.
This works if the roll is hot. So watch and wait then Hit and Run. Watching in this setting pays more than anyplace else, wait more and surely get that Hot roll for a kill. This needs LOT of Discipline. After the first hit hopefully not a 7 you regress as follows: If a 5,6,8 hit: It is based on the idea of gambling with the casino's money. Starting with the original bets will return you enough money to continue play with higher odds of winning.
The advantage is that you can regress after ANY number other than 7 rather than waiting for a specific number to appear. After you've done the initial regression, you can press until your hearts' content without risking any of your own money.
And if the seven eventually falls, you don't have to worry cause it wasn't your money anyway. It's up to you to decide whether or not that's a high enough percentage to gamble on.
Run it through the simulators to watch it work! My goal is for a session. A session will have three hits and the place bets will be off after each hit and wait for the next come out.
Why use a Field Bet? While I am waiting for a hit on the inside place bets , I can pick up some change on the field bets and it reduces the loss of a 7 out before a hit on the place bets.
Place bets are on until a hit on any 5. I then ask the Dealer to " Put place bet on off". I do not play the field when Place bet are on off. I have the dealer put Place bets " On" after the next come out roll and a point is established. After a hit , this session is over and I take all bets down. I have three of these sessions. Sometimes if the table is choppy I will only have one or two sessions.
There are times when a 5,6,8, or 9 just will not show. I limit my hits on the field bet to four. I then put the place bets on " Off" and wait for next come out roll. The hardest part to do is watch the 6s,8s, and 9s show when your place bets are on off. You say to your self, I am losing all this money. This is true in the short run. If you seven out with no field bet hits, It takes 3 or 4 hits to be even. This has worked for me. My suggestion would be to practice this method on a casino craps game on your computer.
This is what I do. Never play behind odds. Once point is established: If field does not hit: Only play field maximum of 2 times on first and second rolls after point. If it hits first time, do not play it again. So on second roll, you have point, and all of field, plus 6 and 8.
First place that hits, cover rest of points. This covers all of points: Pressing should be done as above. This is where the payoff is. This is not as aggressive as the max odds behind the line and 2 come bets with full odds. However, you can weather cold tables longer to be there when it pops. I always toke tip during play to ensure help. I never wait until end of play to tip. If you wait until end to tip, staff doesn't know if you are going to tip or not.
First have a decent bankroll to make decent money. I don't break it down into sessions, I don't split it three ways or bet one hour and not the next or what ever ridiculous things people do. I loss with out a hit on an inside number is 2 units I have to recoup. That is how you have to look at it, once you put your money down on the table, it is the house's money until, you pick it up.
I am looking for the shooter to hit 2 inside or 3 inside numbers, and then I come down with a profit. If two shooters seven out before I hit one number, I walk out.
If a shooter, throws 5 outside or craps numbers, I play the odds and pick up the place bets and I wait for the next shooter.
Watching place betters are funny, they never pick up a profit, never. It would be like going up to a black jack table and pressing your winnings no matter what until you lost, and I have never seen a blackjack player do that. I have been known to stay at tables for hours to days. Think I am crazy Ponder what I have said, think about it logically, and if you have comments or questions please..
Good shooting, Richard Cionci. Whatever the point, back it up with double odds. If the point is 5,6,or 8 place a double unit bet on the other two numbers, then a single unit bet in the Field. You will win on any number except the 7. After 2 hits on any of the no- field numbers, take everything down except the Pass Line bet with odds.
Let the dice roll until a decision is made, then start over. If it does, so much the better. Play this way if the table is warm or hot. Play this way until you get 2 winning rolls in a row, then return to your original play.
Four losing rolls in a row, end that session. This method keeps you busy raking in your wins, and allows you to stand at the table with a Pass Line bet even after you removed your other bets.
I think it is hard and boring to stand there with no action. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Joe Verona britestar9 home. What surprises me the most about craps players is that no one keeps track of the numbers. I guess they are waiting for that elusive hot roll, which is a rare occurrence. If in fact you were at a hot table, you would play the basics of presses on places and comes and increased pass line bets after a win on the point number.
But that is not the norm with craps. You are usually dealing with a cold or choppy table or sometimes a warm table where someone may throw some numbers, make his point, throw some yo's or sevens, establish another point and then throw some more numbers and maybe make the point. Depending on how the player has played, the DO player should have made some money on this shooter. It is a white acrylic board with 37 lines and approx. I think you get the idea. These markers can be removed when their number hits, then sliding the other 10 combinations up, replacing it at the bottom of the column.
Half way up the board on the 19th line I have a neutral line and when the 7 crosses that neutral line all bets are taken off. Meaning that any part of the 7 even the first attached marker and greater crossing the neutral line signals and end for that play until another 7 is thrown. Believe me, if the table gets hot this board will end up under the rail where the drinks go. I have brought the board to Foxwoods for dry runs and naturally you are laughed at by players and dealers, but if I can eke out a small profit playing my system, then I'll be the one laughing silently.
Another thing that I do not understand about some die hard don't players is when a table gets hot even for 15 min. I guess that is called discipline. I've played the don't many times but will switch in a hot second if the table goes hot or sometime even warm. Like if I like the shooter's style etc My new system with the board does not play the don'ts or pass-line, just places the 5,6,8,9,4,10 and buys the 4,10 only after a seven out and it is a losing round will I by the 4,10 because now the bets are more than doubled from 10 units to 25 units for the 4 and This takes into account the savings on the buy bet for the 4,10 after the first 7 out.
I bet are 3 numbers at a time. All due numbers nearest to the top of the column. Take all down when 7 hits neutral line. Marking with an O with a magic marker water based on the bottom of the 7's column line on the board when a 7 out occurs. This way you can get a general idea on where the 7's are occurring the most in the column. All the time if the 7 moves to the center neutral line bring down all bets.
You have to see it in action to really understand what is going on. It is a progression system but will drop other bets back to starting amounts if hit is enough on one or two wins to take you even or slightly ahead. I only use the progression when I have NOT broke even or ahead for the round.
It would be 3 of any of these numbers that are due. Again the most numbers bet 3 that are most due. Here's a practice run. Before I start to play I place a single white blank marker on the bottom of the column before starting. This way as the numbers come out anything left above the white blank marker has not yet hit. This marker when enough rolls have been made will stay at the top for the session. You do not start play yet. Now I will give a simulated roll The 4,6,9,11,12 are still above the white marker.
Not ready to play. The 4,11,12 are still above the white marker. At this point only the 4 has not shown. The horns, 2,12,3,11 I disregard anyway but always move them to the bottom of the board when any of them hit. At this point the order of from bottom to top are 8,6,5,9,2,3,7,10,Blank,4,11,12 Roll The 10,6,8 in that order are the top of the column picks.
More if a repeat of 5,3,9 below the 7 or 2,12,11 above the 7. It has 3 markers above the neutral line and 3 below. This is because if you add up the numbers thrown previous to the 7 which are in order from the bottom 6,9,3,5 the total sum value of 15 markers plus the 3 from the 7 makes it 18 which is half way to the top.
Making the 7 dangerous because once one of it's markers or more passes the neutral line, take down all place bets. Remember when I said 19 lines to the neutral line, you have to count the 1st line. So really 18 markers fill 19 lines. So now the 4,11,2,8,10,blank,12 are above the 7 but bets are now off until a 7 out or a point is made and another 7 on come out is made. In other words you are looking for a 7 so you can start play so wait Yes you can get burnt by 7's on come out.
That's where progression comes into play. It gives you that necessary discipline to take down bets also. I hope this explains it better. Here is a ms word doc. Right click to download-- Craps Tracker. I can win money in front of the computer, but in the casino that could be a different story.
It is basically placing the 3 most due numbers, the 4,5,6,8,9,10 I bet you have heard it all with this one! Any comments welcome and I am thick skinned, so don't pull any punches. Anyone taking something like this into a casino would have to be thick skinned or crazy or both. This system is similar to the pass line conservative method. The difference here is that you add a come bet with your pass line bet. It's a more complex system because you have to deal with two different points, which means keeping track of the betting levels on the odds bets for both of them.
Use a pen and paper if it helps. The method is the same. For every win, you increase your odds bet and with every loss, you decrease your odds bet. Let's look at an example. The shooter throws another 8, so you win your first come bet. The shooter throws a 4, which becomes your new come point. The next roll, however is a 7, so you lose both your come bet and your pass line bet.
Remember, all you're doing is making a pass line bet and a come bet, then increasing the odds on either bet you win and decreasing them on either one you lose. Reprinted from an article in Chance magazine , with permission from the author, Larry Edell.
Visit his site at Thecrapshooter. This system takes advantage of the free odds bet. When you lose you would decrease your odds bet by one unit. Here's an example of how it works.
The first point is six, and you win your bet. So far, you've won three bets and lost none. How do you think you made out? Let's follow the money. This is the power of the casino's free odds on the pass line.
As long as you keep increasing your odds bet by one unit after a win, and decreasing it by one unit after a loss, you'll do much better than a flat-betting pass line player who keeps making the same wager over and over again. Place, reduce, turn off, take down. This is my favorite for the right side on a choppy table as the 5 count variation is for the don't side on a choppy table. Depends on who is getting chopped the most. When I look at this system its really is a don't system in "Sunday go to meeting clothes".
If the 6 or 8 is hit, take down the 5 and 9. Give the shooter two more try's then turn off the 6 and 8 for 3 try's or whatever suits you. Turn back on for 2 try's hit or miss and then take them down. If you lose both the 6 and 8 you break even. When I say across I don't mean all the numbers. Impatience and greed are the biggest threats to your bankroll. I specifically don't play the odds so that I may use that money on the 6 and 8 which are more likely to hit.
I wait for three hits since 4 is about the average time before a 7 appears and then take all money down. I would also take full odds. Two or three hits and I take down. The numbers may not add up as far as the odds are concerned, but the bottom line is that once I started using the house's money I increased my bets to the point that at any one time if I didn't hit I would be right back where I started from and not in the negative.
Just to add, I don't do odds bets on 4, 9, and I play the field which concentrates more money on more numbers to include the 4, 9, Also, the field bet should be more than the place bet if the point is 5. This way I still make money if the point is made. After a day of consistent and fast losing at the tables in Reno , I tried to come up with some method that might stem the tide. I normally don't bet the pass line or don't pass line so I really don't care if the shooter makes the point or not.
I just want to win a bet before that seven shows. I came up with a variation of the 7 method. I use it for 6 and 8 place bets, but you can use it for 5 and 9 or any other combination that you'd like. You leave the bets working till one of them is hit. Then you take them down and wait for the end of the roll. After the next point is established you make 2 more place bets on the 6 and 8 and add 1 unit to the number that last won.
The 6 is thrown, so you take both bets down and wait for the end of the roll. You would repeat the process every time you win a bet. This method is good for a choppy to semi hot table. Also, if the table turns hot, you are already betting at a way higher level and you can truly take advantage by letting the bets work for the life of the roll.
The downside, as with most systems, is an early seven. Follow a single or 8. If is not rolled in 4 rolls, pull it down unless he is a hot shooter. If shooter is hot then parley the wins for times. Any win will give you profit. After any win start the cycle from unit 1 again. My records show a consistent win.
Players feed back is appreciated. Here is a play I make from time to time that always piques their interest. Let's assume we're down at my favorite gambling hall, the Perfect World Casino.
It's called that because - unlike the Real World Casino - these types of plays always seem to work out there. The strategy is simple. Place all the numbers. Whenever one of your numbers rolls you take down the bet and parlay the bet and winnings to the next inside number.
Once all bets have migrated to the six and eight you take one hit and down - or one hit and regress. Now let's say the shooter tosses the nine next. Suppose the 8 rolls next. Let's say the four rolls next. Next toss the five rolls. You tell the dealer to "take me down on the five.
Next toss the eight repeats. But look at all the action you have out there. Now, if you're playing in the "Real World Casino" this is the point where many of us start scratching our heads and counting on our fingers. But what the heck - we're playing in the "Perfect World," so let's let the strategy run its course. A miracle occurs and the shooter tosses the ten. Next toss - eight hard. If you get a hit on the five or nine you take that number down, add the payoff to the original bet and press the adjacent inside number.
That gets you to three units on the six or eight, where you take one hit and down. A power-press parlay move is a beautiful thing when it works, and I've had fair success with several variations of this play on long hands by random rollers. But in the Real World Casino the seven is always lurking out there. If you find yourself out of your comfort zone with the size of the bet, just remember that you never lose when you take money off the table.
I'll assume that the reader knows how to play craps. If you don't know how to play craps, don't learn it. My 'system' will not get rid of the house percentage. All it does is cut it down considerably. For starters, I never play the field bet up to 5. I confine my bets to the following: I'm primarily a Right-way bettor, and the only time I'll bet the "don't" is when all the tables are full and the one I'm at is busting out frequently.
Otherwise, I play the pass, come, and place the 6 and 8. Most casinos offer what are called 'free odds'. What this means is that the player can place from 1 to times the pass or come bet on the number shot on such a bet and receive true odds on the number being made before a seven shows up. For example, most casinos will pay you 7 to 5 on placing a 5 or 9. The true odds are 3 to 2, or 7. Therefore, when I play, I bet the minimum I need to bet on the pass line to be able to take as much of the odds as I can comfortably afford.
My system is very simple. I don't subscribe to the 'hot table - cold table' theories. I know that tables do run very hot and very cold. But there's no way of predicting in advance when the table is going to go cold, and no way of predicting when it is going to run hot.
Craps is a very streaky game, but the streaks aren't predictable in advance. Switching from one table to the next, waiting on certain shooters, etc. So I break my gambling bankroll into as many sessions as I plan on playing, so that I'll have money to play for each session e. When the shooter is coming out, according to how much I have in the bankroll, I'll then place the six and eight for multiples of 6, as the six and eight pay 7 to 6.
I then place a pass line bet in an increment of 5. Then I wait for the roll. If a point is made, I take the odds. Then I put out a come bet. If another point is rolled, I take the odds on that.
I place one more come bet and take the odds on that. Whenever I make a point on the come, I'll place another come bet. If one of my points is six or eight, I take the place bet down.
The idea is to keep a pass line bet with odds, and two come bets with odds in action at all times, as well as the six and eight, if they aren't one of the three other bets the one pass and two come. Naturally, a seven wipes everything out. But by playing this way, you're giving up bets with 1. This cuts the house advantage down as much as possible, while giving the player plenty of action.
As far as pressing my bets, I simply don't. Again, tables run hot and cold, but there's no way of knowing that they're going to run hot in advance, nor when they're going to go cold. If I happen to win nicely in one session, I might allocate some of the win to the next session's bankroll, and be able to play more that way.
But this method gives the player who wants plenty of action the best chance, percentage wise, to keep the house's advantage down, at least in my opinion.
Wait for the next 7-out, then start over! Consistency is important in this system, except as described below, if you want to weather choppy and cold tables with the system.
Performs about the same on all table conditions, though you might see as much as 8 or even 10 consecutive wins on very hot tables, which is really nice. Yes, its boring and very conservative, but I not only win consistently, but from simulations, apparently beat the odds.
I'll explain my theories on that later Some additional rules to remember when using the Stokely System: Never put up another bet on a come out after a point is made, no matter how hot the roller. Don't be tempted by regressions, parleys, etc. Take your profit and your bet down, sit out the round of numbers and wait for the next 7.
Don't be tempted to take another hit except as described later 4. Groupings of multiple 7's are rare, but occur. How to handle such losses and other items are described later.
Avoid mixing other bets and especially hedges Use the same bet over and over again unless as described below. If you are good at chip tracking 7-cycles on the table, precision rollers, or dice setters, use these to your advantage in increasing your standard bet. Some reasons below for why this works and beats the casino's house advantage There are 10 of 36 5 in 36 for each number ways to roll a 6 or 8 on any single roll and 6 ways in 36 to roll a 7.
So its more likely you will hits a 6 or 8 before a 7 on any given roll. That equates to the 1. However, the above percentages as described above assume the following, and therefore does NOT apply to the Stokely System and helps explain why it works as well as it does: Above scenario and percentages assumes you keep your place bet on the table for every bet except the come out , hitting numbers until a seven hits and you lose your table bets which you are not in my system or b.
Above scenario and percentages assumes you are betting every time or roll of the dice working , and as well, leaving your place bet up every single roll of the dice till lost by a seven which you are not in my system.
As you will see, this is the least likely point of ever rolling a seven again based on the fact that 7's must average out to one every six rolls on average, so the advantage is one your side more later.
So is the house edge broken? Lets look at another reason for this I think it is but its a little complex to describe the reasoning.
Over time all these still average out to cycles, of rolling a 7 every 6 rolls roughly. If we lived in a perfect universe, where the percentages were pure and consistent for two rolled dice, you could bet a series of numbers right after a 7 and after five rolls, make your numbers, take them down and avoid the coming 7. By taking down your bet after a win, and waiting for the seven, you not only make a profit but avoid losing ANY money.
I've seen many many cases where after making my one bet, the hot roller came, and I watched some big money win, while I sat on the sidelines. But my losses were almost nothing compared to the excited players beside me who thought they had a hot table. When the table came back warm, I was still way ahead, using my system. It was very strange how consistently this system wins!
Let's look at this another way On average you should see a 7 every six rolls. Its true you can hit several 7's in a row, and that would be your principal loss in the system. If a 7 is rolled the bet loses. Also known as "Taking the Odds", the Pass Line Odds bet is an extra bet that can be made after a Pass Line bet is made and the point is established.
In most cases this can be a multiple of your Pass Line bet. The bet wins if the point is rolled before a 7. This is one of the few best in the casino that has no house edge. The opposite bet to the Pass Line Bet. The Don't Pass bet wins if the come out roll is a 2 or 3 and loses if the come out roll is a 7 or If a 12 is rolled this is a push. In the case of a push or if the point is established the dice continue to be rolled until either a 7 or the point is rolled. The bet wins if a 7 is rolled and loses if the point is roll.
Wins pay even money. Also known as "Laying The Odds", this be is the opposite to Taking the Odds and wins if a 7 is rolled before the point. In most cases this bet can be a multiple of your Don't Pass bet.
The same as the Pass Line Bet with the exception that it can be made at any time after the point is established. The bet wins if a 7 or 11 is rolled and lose if a 2, 3 or 12 is rolled. If any other number is rolled this becomes your point. You win if your point is rolled before a 7. The opposite of the Come bet and can be made at any time after the point is established.
Wins if a 2 or 3 is rolled and loses if a 7 or 11 is rolled. If a 12 is rolled the bet pushes. If a point is established you win if a 7 is rolled before your point. A bet made on 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 that can be made at any time. Wins if the number is rolled before a 7. This bet is the same as the odds bets but with lower pay outs. A relatively rare betting option found at some land based casinos but quite common online. This bet is the opposite of the Place Bets. The bet can be made at any time and wins if a 7 is rolled before your number.
These bets are similar to the Place Bets with different pay offs. A Buy Bet can be placed at any time on any of the points. This bet wins if the point is rolled before a 7.
