There is no strategy that gives a 100% result in this game and cannot be, because the amount on the dice next time does not obey any rule. But, nevertheless, there are strategies based on mathematical expectation, which means they are more winning. So what are these strategies?
Strategy: Don’t Pass Line
It is this bet that gives in fact the greatest advantage for the player. You win on a 2 or 3 and lose on a 7 or 11 (12 is a tie, where the casino maintains its advantage). If Point is set, then the Don’t Pass bettor wins if the shooter gets 7 before Point-a falls out. The Don’t Pass bet has a casino edge of only 1.36%.
At the same time (for comparison) the rate on the Pass Line / Come comes with a house edge of 1.41%. But be prepared that if you are playing live, then the rest of the players will not be particularly happy that you bet against them. In the online format, you will not have such a problem.
Strategy: Invincible Iron Cross “Iron Cross”
The bottom line: After installing Point, the following bets are made:
- 5 $ for FIELD
- PLACE for 6 $ for 5, 6, 8
For the strategy to work, you need to make such Place and Field bets so that their sum is greater than the loss when the 7 is dropped. If you win or lose, the bets are restored, in any case (except for a 7) one of the above bets will win. If the casino pays the Field 1: 1 bet, then the player’s advantage will be 3.34%. And this is a very good chance.
Strategy: Five-point counting method
The five-point method works as follows: The first time the shooter rolls a Point counts as 1 point, followed by three more rolls of a point each. If, as a result of the fifth throw, Point falls out, then you should get 5 points.
If not, then you add the 5th point to the total number of points the time the shooter rolls a Point. Once you reach 5 points, you can place bets. Start the countdown again when you move to a new shooter.
Strategies: Lay and Don’t Come
If you are really interested in minimizing the proverbial casino edge, then lay odds on the Don’t Pass line. In addition to the fact that the bet on the Don’t Pass line is paid out according to the actual probability, the bet on laying odds on this line has zero percent of the house edge. A double bet on the Don’t Pass line reduces the house edge to 0.5% or less.
Since you are betting on laying odds, you will have to at least double its size. For example, if Point is 4 or 10, then you will need to make a bet in the ratio of 2 to 1. In this case, you are risking $ 2 for every $ 1 you want to win, so if you want to win an additional $ 10 for every $ 5 wagered on the Don’t Pass line, you will have to bet $ 20.
Since the Come bet acts as a Pass Line bet for the next roll, the Don’t Come bet allows you to bet against even if the Point has already been set.
