Getting Started with Craps Online

When it comes to playing craps online, there are many different venues out there offering up the opportunity to Canadian gamblers. This is one title that has a very distinctive aura about it since it is often the loudest part of the bricks-and-mortar venue, but this isn't the case when it is played on the internet. Of course, all of the excitement is still there but player should understand the differences and a few basic rules before proceeding.

The Gist of the Game

First and foremost, craps online and off is a game of luck. There is absolutely nothing that anyone can do to affect the outcome of any throw of the dice, and this is something that should always be remembered. With this in mind, while in a bricks and mortar venue the 'players' will all place bets on the outcome of a roll that is thrown by the 'shooter', or the person with the dice in hand, there is only one player in an internet setting. There are literally dozens of different wagers that can be made, but the most common are the Pass and Don't Pass bets.

Percentages and Odds

Outside of the standard wagers, it is important for people to understand the odds of rolling any number possible in order to place the smartest bets. As an example, there are six different ways in which a seven can be achieved - a one and a six, a two and a five, a three and a four and vice versa for each combination. That means that a seven is attainable with six out of 36 possible combinations for a total of five to one odds.

Getting Started

Sticking with the even bets is the best way for beginners to enjoy craps games and they will undoubtedly pick up on the odds and mathematics as time goes by. Taking it slow, trying free games and making the most of every single bet is key.
