In nearly every movie featuring a casino, there is a scene or a snippet that includes someone throwing dice and drawing a crowd. The most popular game of chance is craps. Yes, craps, the game played in the streets in gangster movies, the game portrayed on TV and in movies as the most exciting game in the casino…Craps can literally make you scream in excitement and groan in abject disappointment.
Why? Well, here are 3 of the many reasons why craps is so awesome.
No Skill Needed
Like slots, craps doesn’t require any skill or strategy to win. You pick up the dice, throw the dice, and you win or lose based on what you roll. Unless you play with leaded dice (which is impossible in modern casinos because of the precautions they take to prevent it), you cannot predict how the dice will come out.
What could be more fun than playing a game of chance that is more excitement than doing homework? If you want to play a game that doesn’t require you watch online tutorials over and over again, learn how to calculate odds, or how to read the faces of other players, craps is the game for you. Everything in Craps is based entirely on luck.
Unlike poker and roulette with house odds as high as 29%, craps has a house advantage of only 0.6%, one of the lowest of any games of chance. With odds like that, you are actually increasing your chances of winning by playing. Honestly, why would you even play anything else when you can walk into the casino, head to the craps table, and actually win some money?
When it comes to throwing down dice, the possibilities are nearly limitless. Because there are so many possible outcomes, you can literally play craps for hours before you crap out. Since the possibilities are nearly limitless, the amount of money you can win playing is just as limitless. Can you imagine spending hours throwing dice and watching your stack of chips grow?
Caveat: While the desire to keep playing and winning as much as possible, remember that a loss is on the way. Walking away while you’re ahead is a good idea, especially for beginners or people who don’t have the money to lose.
If you are new to table games of chance, your best bet to win big without much risk is to lay your chips down on the craps table and roll the bones.
