X Tips for Playing Online Craps




Craps are one of the most popular dice games in both online and on-the-ground casinos. The game is easy to learn and exciting to play, and it can bring in large wins if you’re lucky. In the end, it is a game of luck, but players can improve their chances by placing careful and strategic bets.

In this article, we’ll explain tips and tricks that crap players need to know, and that can help you increase your odds and lower your risk. Keep in mind, however, that there is no way to predict the outcome of the craps game (even the advanced AI – ChatGPT can’t do that), and all that a player can do is work the rules in their favor.

Learn All You Can About the Game

When it comes to playing online craps, there’s no reason to jump into a game and figure out how it’s played. There are online tutorials and guides that you can use before actually betting anything. In most cases, these are provided by the casinos as a way to help new players ease into the game.

Take the time to view and study these before betting on craps in the first place. Many online casinos also allow players to bet for tokens and play demo games as a way to try them out for free.

It’s OK. Play Don’t Pass

Don’t Pass bets are just the opposite of Pass Line bets. Rather than hoping for a 7 or an 11 on the come-out roll, you’re hoping for a 2, 3, or 12 (the losing roll of pass-line bets). A 2, 3, or 12 will double your money on a come-out roll if you’ve placed a Don’t Pass bet.

Don’t pass and don’t come bets are a good deal since they have a house edge of 1.41 percent only. Many players avoid these bets as they aren’t seen as dynamic and fast-paced. That kind of approach is what makes the game exciting to play, but it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t use the rules to your advantage when you can.

Don’t Use Single-roll Bets

The single-roll bet is resolved after just one roll of the dice. If a 7 is revealed, the player wins 4x their stake, but if any other number is rolled, the player loses.


It’s not easy to avoid single-roll bets. The casino edge on this bet is much higher than on most other bets, as it’s somewhere about 10 percent. Research shows that online players are more conservative than those playing in real-life casinos. It’s much easier to avoid a single roll bet by checking the option to do it automatically.

Max Out Pass Bets

The most basic craps bet is the Pass Line bet. When you place a Pass Line bet, you’re betting with the dice. In other words, you’re betting that either a 7 or an 11 will be the first number rolled (called the “come out” roll). If this happens, you double your money right away. If a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 is rolled, this establishes a “point.” When a point is set, you want that number to be rolled again before a 7 is rolled (when the shooter “sevens out”). If the shooter rolls the point before he rolls a 7, you double your money.

An interesting thing about these bets is the more you play them, the more the house edge is reduced. It’s essentially a side bet that will reduce the house edge by 1.4 to 0.8 percent every time you make it. That’s why many casinos cap your odds at 3-4-5 on what point was established.

Save on Tips

It’s customary to tip in a craps game. The custom comes from real-life casinos where a player on a roll would tip the dealer for good luck and as a sign of appreciation. It’s still possible to tip the dealer in an online game, and many do so since there’s no dealer to talk about; you’re, in fact, tipping the casino.

Craps is a game of luck. When played in an online casino, it depends on the random number generator, which means there’s nothing a player can do to affect the outcome of a roll. Cutting down on tips is a good way to save money.

Set up Budget

One of the best ways to avoid losing too much on the craps table is to set up a budget that you’re willing to pay for and lose. Once reaching the limits of the budget, the player should leave a table and give up for a day, if not for a bit longer. There’s no point in chasing the game of luck.

Most modern betting sites allow the players to set up and automate this limit, meaning you’ll get locked out of your account once you lose the set amount. It’s a good precaution for those who are prone to chasing losses.

Leave After a Good Roll

Many players fail to use this simple technique, and it can help them with craps or any other dice game. When you have a good role and win big, the best thing to do is leave the table. Many players try to capitalize on their winnings and feel like they’re not really losing any of their money after a big win.

In the long run, dice games have a return to players of less than 100 percent. This means that in the long run, you’ll always end up losing. Knowing when to quit is, therefore, an essential skill for craps players.

Be Careful With Free Rolls

Many betting sites offer free rolls as bonuses. These are meant to reward loyal players and attract new ones. It’s a useful feature that players should take advantage of. However, this doesn’t mean bonuses are free money.

Free rolls come with wagering requirements attached. This means that a player needs to bet a portion of their own money before they are able to withdraw the bonuses. Sometimes, the requirements are set so high that the bonus isn’t worth it.

Choose the Casinos Carefully

Online craps is one of the most popular dice games out there, and almost every online casino offers it. This doesn’t, however, mean you should play at any online casino that does. Choosing the casinos you’ll use carefully is just as important as responsibly playing the game.


You shouldn’t play at casinos that don’t have the proper licenses, regardless of how good their offer is. Proper licenses guarantee that the casino is legit. It’s also useful to read online reviews and study the casino before using its services.

To Sum Up

Online craps are a dice game of luck, played the same as the offline version of the game popular in any casino. There are a few common bets to avoid, as well as some that any player should play all the time since the odds are set in their favor.

It’s also useful to carefully manage your bankroll and try to limit your risk wherever you can. It’s also useful to know when to quit and cut your losses. Craps also come with bonuses that a good player knows how to use or when to give up on.
