Understand How to Gamble on Craps – Tips and Strategies

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

If the pay off for a Don’t Pass Odds bet is the same as the amount of the Flat bet, then the Odds bet is bridged. The section of your Odds bet that’s equal to the Flat wager is put right beside to the Flat wager. Then, the remainder of the Odds wager is placed on top "bridging" them. For example, let us say you put a $5 Don’t Pass bet and the player throws a point of 8. Understanding the true odds for the eight are six to five (i.e., 6 ways to roll a 7, and 5 ways to make an 8), you then put 6 dollars in Odds with the expectation of acquiring $5. In this example, if you actually win the six dollars Odds bet, you win 5 dollars, which absolutely equals the amt. you win with your $5 Flat bet. Therefore, since your Flat bet and Odds wager aquire the same amt. (five dollars each), you bridge your 6 dollars Odds bet by laying a 5 dollar chip directly beside to your five dollar Flat wager, and then placing the $1 chip so it bridges the 2 five dollar chips.

If the payout for a Do not Pass Odds bet does not equal the amt. of the Flat wager, then the Odds wager is heeled. This means you position the bottom chip of your Odds wager chip stack exactly beside to your Flat bet. Then, position all remaining Odds bet chips on that first chip but offset and leaning on that first chip (your Odds bet chip stack is crooked because it’s leaning on the bottom chip).

Flustered? That is okay, don’t get alarmed. The croupier is always ready to assist if you don’t remember. After a few instances, it all makes sense. It won’t take too much time before you are an expert. If you are not certain what to do the initial time you try it, basically inform the croupier, "I would like to lay some Odds but I don’t comprehend if it really should be bridged or heeled." The croupier asks, "How much do you want to lay?" Let’s say you indicate, "$15 to win ten." The croupier will request that you drop your chips on the craps table (croupiers aren’t permitted to accept anything, in particular chips, right from a player), and then the dealer properly heels or bridges them based on the amount of your Flat wager. You’ll quickly get the hang of it. Just do not be hesitant to ask the dealer inquiries. Her job is just to deal, but also to be courteous and help the players.
