Casino Craps - Place Bet

What is a Place Bet?

Place Bets - Place Bets are either betting for or against a specific wining point number to be rolled before a 7. The Place Bets may persist beyond a round and are always active, even during the Come Out roll. They may be placed, modified or removed at any time before any roll yet it is most common to be placed after the como out roll. Active place bets will win when the number that they are placed on rolls. Active place bets always lose on the roll of 7.

How do I Make a Place Bet in Craps?

So you want to make a place bet. As a player you are NOT allowed to acces the place bet area on the felt. Only the dealer does and so you would have to place the money on the table and let the dealer know you want to place a place bet and on which number. your request by the dealer by something as simple as him or her saying "Bet"

Pick a number between 4-10 (not 7) and place your wager on it before the roll. You may place on one or all 6 numbers but in this case the house charges a feee. At anytime you may decide to withdraw your bet or make the bet at any time during the game. you can come out even and this happens if for example you do a place bet on 6 and the player rolls a 3 and then a 3 again - you will come out with a push and get the wager back.

What is the Best Place Bet in Craps?

The best place to place the bet is on seven (7) to six (6) odds on the six (6) or eight (8) based on the house's favorable advantage. The high house edge on four (4), five (5), nine (9), and ten (10) make these bets, BAD place bets. So to repeat, the only ones that should be considered are the 6 or 8 place bets.

Going for the Big 6 and Big 8 is an option but that may be a foolish move at the craps betting table. We leave the betting choice up to you!
