The initial idea behind Craps as we know it today most probably originated from the early English game of “Hazard” and is believed to date as far back as the Crusades. The modern American version of the game was brought ashore by one Bernard Xavier Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville, this being the version played today in Trinidad and Tobago as well as many parts of the world.
The complexity of the game’s gaming board may seem intimidating at first – especially to beginners – but upon closer inspection it soon becomes apparent that the basics of Craps are actually quite simple. The introduction of online Craps has seen the game’s popularity soar to dizzying heights and it is officially one of the most played games in River Belle Casino’s repertoire!

Exploring Winning Craps Strategies
Players are forever in search of that one ever-elusive strategy that will prove to be fail-safe. There are however certain types of bets that are more beneficial than others. These are referred to as “good bets” and “bad bets”. The better bets have a lower house edge and are more beneficial to the players.
Good bets include:
the pass line bet – the house edge is only 1.41%
the don’t pass bet – house edge equals to 1.40%
the come bet – again, the house edge is only 1.41%
the don’t come bet – a repeat of the 1.40% house edge
Bad bets are:
the field bet – the house edge is 5.6%
the big 6 or big 8 bet – the house edge is an intimidating 9.1%
the hard bets – a house edge of 12.5%
the Craps 2 or Craps 12 bet – a whopping 13.9% house edge
The message then, is a simple one: stick to the good and avoid the bad. Above all, have fun playing!
