My latest guide for precision shooting is about dice control strategy and bet management. Using good money management works well in any type of casino game, but it is especially important in craps when you are doing dice control. The same also goes for strategy when making bets since some bets will be more rewarding for this particular method.
Depending on whether you are trying to throw sevens or not throw them, there is a concept explained in the guide known as 7 exposure. It is a strategy related to how much money you are willing to lose when rolling a seven. This exposure is basically a percentage of your bankroll and is equal to what you think your overall edge is over the casino and the house. It is kind of hard to find this, but the general concept shows that when you have a good shooter who can really control the dice, your percentage gets higher and so does your 7 exposure. For example, if you have a $5,000 bankroll and the 7 exposure is 10% (which is ridiculously high), when you would be willing to lose $500 if you rolled a seven.
Of course this is not as important if you are actually trying to roll a seven. Now another betting strategy that you should take advantage of is when you are rolling more numbers with higher frequency in craps. For instance, you might be the lucky one who can easily shoot snake eyes or box cars (2 or 12). If you can set the dice correctly and precisely throw them perfectly, you can make a ton of money. The actual odds of throwing any of these two numbers is 1 in 36 rolls and it pays out $30 for every $1 bet, which actually has a high house edge and is normally a bad deal bet. If you can learn to throw any of these numbers and get them to land consistently with the rate of 1 in 15 throws or 1 in 20 throws, you can make a lot of money.
If there are other craps shooters out there, watch what they are trying to roll, if you notice that they keep messing up and not getting their desired number, but they keep landing on some other unintended number, this is known as the shooter’s signature number. This is a result of the shooter doing something wrong with their throw consistently enough (or something right as well), that they land on the same numbers over and over again. In some cases, the player may not even realize this and it happens often. So watch for any signature numbers and take advantage of it in your betting strategy.
