# Learning to Win at Online Craps When a new player starts to play craps, it is necessary for him or her to understand the probabilities of rolling the scores of two dice. The opposite face of a die always adds up to seven. One and its opposite six, five and two, and finally three and four all make a total of seven. The table below should make this clearer. Once you learn it visit this casino and try it in practice.

 Total score of both dice Face value Combinations 2 1 and 1 1 3 1 and 2, 2 and 1 2 4 3 and 1, 2 and 2, 1 and 3 3 5 4 and 1, 3 and 2, 2 and 3, 1 and 4 4 6 5 and 1, 4 and 2, 3 and 3, 2 and 4, 1 and 5 5 7 6 and 1, 5 and 2, 4 and 3, 3 and 4, 2 and 5, 1 and 6 6 8 6 and 2, 5 and 3, 4 and 4, 3 and 5, 2 and 6 5 9 6 and 3, 5 and 4, 4 and 5, 3 and 6 4 10 6 and 4, 5 and 5, 4 and 6 3 11 6 and 5, 5 and 6 2 12 6 and 6 1

The above chart shows that there are only 36 possible outcomes from the throw of two dice. When a player is learning the game, it clearly shows that the best odds would be to place a bet on the highest possible combination score. This is called playing safe because a player is betting on the most likely outcome of the roll.

The house odds favor all bets except in the cases of “pass the line” bets and “do not pass the line” bets. These two types of bet will yield the most wins as they are the most frequent combinations that can be rolled. The payouts are the lowest for these types of bets but for the beginner it is better to win a little often than lose a lot regularly.

The house edge in craps is the lowest in the casino. The pass the line bet has a house edge of 1.41 percent, and the do not pass the line bet has an even lower house edge of just 1.36 percent. The bets that the beginner should avoid are the big six bet and the big eight bet. Both of these carry a house edge of 9.1 percent.
