Although it is thought that Craps is a simple game of throwing dice and betting on the result when it comes to betting money, systems and theories of how to change the result in favour of the player always come to light, many of these 96ace strategies include the “Player Fallacy,” “Dice Control,” and the popular “Martingale.”

These strategies are at the risk of those who use them because as with all games of chance, no system is infallible.

Popular Craps Strategies

Although it seems that the house always wins at Craps, there are several systems that have worked for regular casino players.

One of the most popular strategies is the Player Fallacy, which consists of betting on the same number that has not left. This is because statistically, it is believed that a number that has not previously gone out is more likely to appear in future rounds, just as a number that has come out repeatedly is less likely to come out again. However, and as the name of this strategy says, it is a “fallacy”, since each dice roll is an independent event, and is not affected by the previous throws. Therefore, it is possible that situations occur in which rare numbers such as 12 and 2 appear several times when common numbers such as seven are not seen.

Another strategy that may be more daring in the mathematical field is Dice Control. Theoretically, when repeating a dice roll, in the same way, the result should be the same. However, this cannot be done when playing Craps online. Unlike myths such as the “Equality Coverage System”, this is mathematically possible, since if all the conditions that gave way to a specific dice roll are repeated, it is physically possible that the result is the same. However, casinos are already one step ahead with this system, since many require that the dice hit the board wall for the shot to be valid, thus eliminating the possibility of a shot being repeated by the way of throwing a expert player

The Martingale

Although the term was coined by Ville in 1939, the theory was popularized by Paul Lévy in 1934, and the original concept was not for use in dice, but in “face or cross” coin sets. However, as it is an independent betting system, it can be used in any game of chance that includes simple and unique bets.

This is a “safe bet” system very popular among Craps players. It consists of an initial bet that, in case of losing, the player will proceed to double. If you lose the second bet, you will bet twice the amount you lost. This procedure continues until the player wins, recovering all the money he has lost in all consecutive bets. Once you have won, bet the initial amount again. In this way, you always recover what you bet, assuming that at least once you have to win in multiple betting rounds.

Although it is thought to be a safe method, in reality, it is usually very risky, since many bets in a row without a victory can drain the player’s chips quickly. In addition, many casinos have a betting limit, which can easily be exceeded with this system. Interestingly, the greatest contribution of this system was Joseph Leo Dobb, whose initial motivation to develop this method was to prove how insecure these types of infallible strategies are.
