Understanding House Edge

The casinos are not in business to lose money. House edge is simply the percentage advantage the casino has over the player. This percentage varies from game to game, bet to bet, and even casino to casino. The above are from NV.

Another way to look at house edge – It is the percentage you are expected to lose on a bet. For example, if you wager $10 on a bet carrying a 1.4% house edge, your expected loss is 14 cents.

In order to determine house edge on any given bet, we have to take into consideration the probability of that particular bet hitting, and the resulting payout.

Let’s consider a field bet as an example. A field bet is a one-roll bet that a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, or 12 will hit on the next roll. Typically, the 2 and 12 pay double, and everything else pays even money. Due to the probabilities of this bet hitting and subsequent payout, the casino has a house edge of 5.5%.

However, some casinos will pay triple on the 12. Due to that increased payout, the house edge drops down to 2.78%

Bottom line – sticking to bets with the lowest possible house edge will give you the best chance of winning.

Understanding & Calculating Payouts

Let’s take a look at the place bets section from the craps payout chart above. A place bet made on the 6 or 8 carries a payout of 7:6. Two other ways of saying this is:

  1. 7 for 6
  2. For every $6 wagered, your payout will be $7

So, if we bet $12 on the 6, our payout would be $14. There are two 6’s in that wager, so we get two 7’s in payout.

Looking at the 4 and 10 with a payout of 9:5, this means we will get $9 for every $5 wagered. Placing a $25 bet (five 5’s) has a payout of $45 (five 9’s)

Craps Payouts for Combination Bets

Combination bets, a Horn Bet for example, is a way to place multiple bets at once without specifying each individual number. The Horn Bet itself does not carry an individual payout, instead, each independent number carries it’s own payout.

Therefore, total payout on a horn being tossed will depend on which of the 4 numbers is actually hit.

When you look at the payout chart above, you’ll see the 2 and 12 are highlighted in blue, along with the corresponding payout of 30:1 highlighted in blue. 3 and 11 highlighted in green, and their corresponding payout of 15:1 highlighted in green.

For those visually impaired, they are also grouped according to their payouts with a “|” divider. 2, 12 | 3, 11 correspond to 30:1 | 15:1. So, 2 or 12 pays 30:1 while 3 or 11 pays 15:1.

How Dealers Memorize Payout Odds

If you’ve ever been on a busy craps table and see tons of chips changing hands with every roll of the dice, you’ve probably wondered how the dealers actually do it so quickly.

Well, in short, most dealers don’t have to do much math. They have certainly memorized all craps bets and payouts, but they typically deal with chip increments. Think of it as “stacks of chips”. They quickly make payments by “feel” and have learned the corresponding increments based on stack size and color.

In order to ensure all players are paid, they also pay players in a specific order. They start with the player closest to the stickman and work their way around the table.

Pro Tip – Know your position on the table, where your bet is located, and payout order. As the dealer is preparing to pay you, this is the time to press or simply say “same bet”. Don’t jump ahead of them!

Craps Payouts Final Thoughts

Odds bets carry the best payouts in the casino. They pay true odds, meaning there is no house edge. Playing a craps strategy that includes odds betting will maximize your chances of winning.

When looking at the craps payout chart above, it is best to stick to the bets with the lowest house edge. Although proposition bets can be a ton of fun when they hit, they will quickly drain your bankroll if you play them too much.

Good luck on the craps table!
