Odds on a Line Bet (or, simply called "odds bets")

When a point has been established (a place number is rolled) onrepparttar comeout, you are permitted to take true odds against a 7 appearing beforerepparttar 140120 point number is rolled again. This means you can bet an additional amount up torepparttar 140121 amount of your line bet. This called an "odds" bet.

Your odds bet can be any amount up torepparttar 140122 amount of your line bet, although many casinos will now allow you to make odds bets of two, three or even more timesrepparttar 140123 amount of your line bet. This odds bet is paid at a rate equal torepparttar 140124 odds of that point number being made before a 7 is rolled.

You make an odds bet by placing your bet directly behind your pass line bet. You notice that there is nothing onrepparttar 140125 table to indicate that you can place an odds bet, while there are indications loudly printed all over that table forrepparttar 140126 other "sucker" bets. This is becauserepparttar 140127 casino does not want to encourage odds bets. You have to know that you can make one.

Here's how these odds are computed. Since there are 6 ways that a number 7 can be rolled and 5 ways that a 6 or 8 can be rolled,repparttar 140128 odds of a 6 or 8 being rolled before a 7 is rolled again are 6 to 5 against you. This means that ifrepparttar 140129 point number is a 6 or 8, your odds bet will be paid off atrepparttar 140130 rate of 6 to 5. For every $10 you bet, you will win $12 (bets smaller or larger than $10 are of course paid atrepparttar 140131 same 6 to 5 ratio). The odds of a 5 or 9 being rolled before a 7 is rolled are 3 to 2, so you get paid $15 for every $10 bet. The odds of 4 or 10 being rolled first are 2 to 1, so you get paid $20 for every $10 you bet.

Note that these are true odds you are paid exactly proportional to your chance of winning. This isrepparttar 140132 only true odds bet you will find in a casino, so be sure to make it whenever you play craps.

AN EASY TO LEARN BASIC CRAPS STRATEGY

Here's an example ofrepparttar 140133 three types of outcomes that result when a new shooter plays and how you should bet.

Assume new shooter is getting ready to makerepparttar 140134 comeout roll and you make a $10 bet (or whatever amount you want) onrepparttar 140135 pass line. The shooter rolls a 7 or 11 onrepparttar 140136 comeout. You win $10,repparttar 140137 amount of your bet.

You bet $10 again onrepparttar 140138 pass line andrepparttar 140139 shooter makes a comeout roll again. This time a 3 is rolled (the player "craps out"). You lose your $10 pass line bet.

You bet another $10 andrepparttar 140140 shooter makes his third comeout roll (remember, each shooter continues to roll until he sevens out after making a point). This time a 4 is rolled one ofrepparttar 140141 place numbers or "points". You now want to take an odds bet, so you place $10 directly behind your pass line bet to indicate you are takingrepparttar 140142 odds. The shooter continues to rollrepparttar 140143 dice until a 4 is rolled (the point is made), at which time you win $10 on your pass line bet, and $20 on your odds bet (remember, a 4 is paid at 2 to 1 odds), for a total win of $30. Take your chips offrepparttar 140144 table and get ready to bet again.

However, if a 7 is rolled beforerepparttar 140145 point number (in this case, beforerepparttar 140146 4), you lose both your $10 pass line bet and your $10 odds bet.

And that's all there is to it! You simply make you pass line bet, take odds if a point is rolled onrepparttar 140147 comeout, and then wait for eitherrepparttar 140148 point or a 7 to be rolled. Ignore allrepparttar 140149 other confusion and sucker bets. Your haverepparttar 140150 best bet inrepparttar 140151 casino and are playing wisely.

IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT ODDS BETS

Odds bets can be made any time after a comeout point is rolled. You don't have to make them right away . However, you'd be foolish not to make an odds bet as soon as possible considering it'srepparttar 140152 best bet onrepparttar 140153 table. However, you are permitted to make, withdraw, or reinstate an odds bet anytime afterrepparttar 140154 comeout and before a 7 is rolled.

When you win an odds bet, be sure to take your chips offrepparttar 140155 table. Otherwise, they are considered to be automatically "off" onrepparttar 140156 next comeout and will not count as another odds bet unless you specifically tellrepparttar 140157 dealer that you want them to be "working". But in a fast moving and loud game, your request may not be heard, so it's better to simply take your winnings offrepparttar 140158 table and bet again withrepparttar 140159 next comeout.
