Before we explore craps
systems, let’s review.
betting with odds is boring for many craps players who just love the
action and can’t be bothered with making this two-step process of going
up on the Pass and/or Come, waiting for the dice to roll a point number
(4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10), then placing the full odds on the number and hope
that number hits before the dreaded 7.
Even the eight times in 36 when they win on a 7 and 11 during Come-Out
rolls just isn’t all that exciting to some players.
So, what to do about craps betting? Players have invented or
bought systems to beat the game.

you should only lose 61 cents for every $100 you bet this way. In a 5X
odds game, the casino edge is 0.33 percent, in 10 X odds games, it is

the math, but with shooters who are changing the nature of the game due
to some physical control of the dice.
These rhythmic rollers or
dice controllers have a set pattern to their rolls consisting of a
careful setting of the dice and a steady, soft delivery that allows the

who set the dice are not rhythmic rollers. I’ve seen players who take
great care setting their numbers just so -- before winging the dice
down the table where they bang the back wall and bounce all over the
place. That kind of throw is strictly random and cannot affect the
house edge one bit.
It is a method that physically overcomes the
house vig by influencing the outcome of your roll. It’s a tough skill
to learn and takes a lot of practice. After all, dice control is a
skill, not a system.
