While you are playing craps online to win cash, it’s a good idea to look for good value bets – especially when you are new to the game. At BetUS Casino, there are plenty of new players trying out Craps – one of the most exciting games to play in any casino. Be ready with your best Craps betting strategy

When a new craps session starts

I think the best value bet for a player is the pass-line wager. The casino holds a minimal 1.41% edge on this wager – while many other wagers offer bigger payouts, their odds are definitely much worse.

For those that don’t know, the pass-line bet is laid before a new shooter starts to play. If a 7 or 11 is rolled initially, your bet wins. If the roll is 2, 3 or 12, then you lose. Any other number creates a new pass number – if that number is rolled again before a 7, then you win. It sounds complicated but is actually easy.

Another bet that holds great value during the start of a session is the don’t pass bet. The casino holds a slightly lower edge of only 1.36%. The Don’t Pass Bet is basically the opposite of the pass line wager. You are betting on 2, 3, or 12 initially, or the new point.

Some beginners don’t like the bet, because you’re essentially betting against the roller. Craps is a highly fun social game and it can be more fun to cheer with the other players at the table, instead of against them. Regardless, go with value – a lot of the time, you’re at the casino to make money instead of friends, right?

Before you get into the deeper variations of Craps betting, try out these two wagers to gain maximum value from your bets as you learn this exciting casino game.
