Craps Buy PORTABLE
This is one of the more complicated and interesting bets in craps. First I will start off talking about the buy bet. Basically, players can make a bet on the established point numbers at any time. Players will win if the shooter rolls the point number before the seven. The payouts would be excellent because it would be paid by true odds. That means 4 and 10 pays out 2:1 odds, 5 and 9 pays out 3:2 odds and 6 and 8 pay out 6:5 odds. This is also the actual odds of winning the bet so the house edge is zero! To sum it up, it pays out exactly same way as the pass odds bet for each number. The catch is a player must pay a 5% commission to the house, which is known as "vig" or "juice". This small fee increased the house edge from 0% to 4.76%.
Unfortunately, I could not get a screenshot of where to place this bet on the table because this casino does not support the bet. But if you click on the image below, you can still play the free flash game of craps on this table anyways and practice the game, which is beneficial anyways for new players.
The game of craps is one of the most diverse and versatile that you will find on the casino floor. You can often guess the craps table simply by the sheer number of spectators, which often outnumber the players themselves. Indeed, craps is one of the most popular casino games out there and one of its advantages are the multiple betting options at your disposal. This allows you to experience craps in several different ways since each bet type offers its own unique payout ratios and odds.
Buying the 4 and/or the 10 is the most worthwhile Buy bet on the craps table, both in terms of odds and payout. Whenever you make such a wager, you are betting on whether or not the next roll of the dice will result in a 4 or a 10. A winning 10 or 4 Buy bet will pay even money (2:1), whereas a place bet on the same numbers will pay 9:5. As a result, Buy bets are the way to go when wagering on these numbers.
The 6 and 8 Buy bets are the third and final Buy bet type that you will find on the craps table. As it happens, this bet is the one that gets the short end of the stick in terms of odds and payouts. Unlike the previous two, the 6/8 Buy pays only 6:5, meaning that for every $10 that you wager, you stand to win $12 before the commission is charged. As far as its Place equivalent is concerned, the 6/8 Buy features worse odds and a lower payout ratio in all circumstances.
As mentioned previously, Buy bets are some of the most favorable in craps where odds are concerned. Unlike many of the other betting options, Buy wagers pay true odds, meaning that you receive a payment equal to the probability of winning the bet. This is the best possible ratio that you can get at any casino game. Though there is also the commission to consider, so in this point, we will discuss everything you need to know about the mathematical aspect of Buy bets.
Buy bets are certainly some of the better ones that you can place on the craps table. You have several different options when it comes to choosing, though you should always keep the commission in mind. While the idea of Buy bets are sold to the public as offering true odds, this is only half-way true. The vig will take a small percentage of your winnings and it, in turn, serves as the house edge in this sense. Even after the commission is charged, however, the difference is not too big.
Of course, you should do your research and look over the other possible betting options available at the craps table. On our website, we have guides for every aspect of craps that you need to concern yourself with, so be sure to check out the other craps bets.
Overall, the Buy bets at craps are some of the simplest out there. This game really lends itself to all kinds of players and the variety of betting options makes it worth the trouble. As far as the Buy bets are concerned, they certainly have their uses. Based on our descriptions above, you should now understand that certain bets are more appropriate than others, taking into account payout ratios and house edge values. Therefore, you need to carefully consider where you will place your stack of chips. Truth be told, you can do a lot worse than Buy bets and even if you do not play at the best possible way, you should not see much in the way of consequences.
Crapless craps, once only dealt as a novelty game at the Stratosphere in Las Vegas, is gaining in popularity. We found it at several Ohio casinos, as well as all over the Las Vegas Strip. It is not dealt at any legal online casinos.
In most cases, the best crapless craps bets in terms of house edge is buying the 2 and 12 for $25 or $50. This pays 6/1, minus a 5% commission on the bet. A $25 bet on 2 and 12 pays $149. A $50 one pays $298. That makes the house edge 0.67%. Buying it for $20 or $40, or other $20 increments, has a house edge of 0.83%.
The house edge of the pass line and come is 5.38% at crapless craps when not taking odds. There is no house edge on the odds taken. Every dollar in odds drops the overall house edge of the bet. The standard 3-4-5 times odds games have a house edge around 1.4-1.5%, depending on the maximum allowed on the 2, 3, 11 and 12.
A five times crapless craps game, like the one found at Sahara in Las Vegas, has a house edge of just over one percent. The 10 times crapless craps games, like the ones available in Ohio casinos and at The Strat in Las Vegas, have a house edge around 0.5%. Note that all of these numbers are worse than traditional craps with the same odds.
Buying the 4 or 10 is the same in crapless craps as it is in traditional craps. When buying these numbers for $25 or $50, the house edge is 1.33% in casinos that only require paying a commission if it wins. It goes to 1.67% on bets in $20 increments. These numbers assume the commission is only paid on a win. If the juice must be paid upfront, the house edge grows exponentially.
The field bet is the same for crapless craps as in the traditional game. Many casinos pay triple on 12. This includes MGM Resorts casinos in Las Vegas, all of which now deal crapless craps. The house edge on this bet when the field pays triple on 12 is 2.78%. It goes to 5.56% if the 2 and 12 both pay double.
Each craps bet has about the same house edge in all casinos except "buy" bets. Casino rules for "buying" a number vary from region to region, property to property, shift to shift and even crew member to crew member. The prudent player will seek out the best buy bets and avoid the worst.
The craps games with the best buy bets are found in Mississippi, particularly Tunica. MOst of these casinos will automatically "buy" a 4, 5, 9, or 10 when its advantageous for the player to do so. All of them collect the commission after a win. For the low-roller, some casinos automatically buy the outside numbers (4, 5, 9, and 10) for $10 and pay off in 50 increments. You can tell these games by looking for stacks or rolls of fifty-cent pieces by the dealers chip stacks.
Most of these casinos allow you to buy the 4, 5, 9 and 10 for $30 with a $1 vig (or $15 with a 50 vig). Some even allow up to $35. A $30 bet on the 4 or 10 has a 1.11 percent edge. On the 5 and 9 the edge is 1.33 percent. At $35 the 4 and 10 carry a mere .95 percent edge, and the edge on a $36 5 or 9 comes to 1.11 percent. That makes them the best bets in craps.

Other players place their bets on their own betting terminal away from the table and the dice throws are live-streamed to their personal screen. While not exactly a traditional craps game, this is the most authentic way to play $5 craps on the Strip.
$10 minimums seem to be the new normal on craps tables downtown, however, $5 craps can still be found from time to time. When looking for cheap craps on Fremont Street, non-peak times are your friend.
Your best bet for finding $5 craps tables in Vegas is venturing into the locals market, and away from the Strip and Fremont Street. My go-to spot historically has been Palace Station, which is a short Uber ride from resorts on the Strip.
The newest incarnation of bubble craps is less social in nature, allowing a player to place bets on their own terminal and pop their own dice. Minimums are commonly offered at $1, and the game moves as quickly as you want.
A new addition to casinos in Las Vegas is Roll To Win Craps which is a hybrid between a traditional craps game, and bubble craps. The game is operated by one dealer instead of the 3 needed for a traditional game.
I was at Planet Hollywood and they had a $5min Live craps table. The Shooter would go up to the table by themselves and all bets are done digitally on individual kiosks. Which is cool because then no chips are on the table at all.

These two bets are among the most popular bets associated with the craps table. When it comes to the table layout, the Big Six and the Big Eight are located at both ends of the table. Both of the bets are a double-edged sword, as it could either make or break your gaming session in a matter of seconds.
When all is said and done, the Big Six and Big Eight bets allow the players to place a wager that the number six or eight will be rolled before the number seven appears on the dice. Once the wager has been placed, the craps team member taking care of the dice rolling commences this process as many times as the situation requires. This means that the dice are being rolled until the casino patron wins or loses. 041b061a72
