Hop Bets

Placing a Hop Bet
by Predictem.com Staff

If your a craps player and you have premonitions about what the next roll of the dice is going to be you can make some good loot betting on a hop bet.

A hop bet is a one roll wager in which you call out what you think the next roll will be. If you can guess the right number, you will be paid handsomely to the tune of 15-1 odds.

If you call the dice to roll "doubles" on a roll, the odds double to 30 to 1. (Example: If you bet a hoppin' hardway 8, the dice need to come 4-4 to win.

To place a hop bet, you simply tell the dealer you'd like a "hoppin' 41 or whatever number you think the dice are going to be on the next roll. Note that if the dice roll any other numbers you lose, even if they add up to the same number your call did.

Example of a hop bet:

A craps player calls out a hoppin' 41. The dice roll and a 23 shows up. Both sets of numbers add up to 5, however you lost because it didn't come as a 4 and a 1 on the dice. If the dice came up with a 4 and a 1 you'd be awarded 15x your risked wager.

Going back to the "doubles" hop bet, you may be thinking to yourself, hey, 30-1 is a lot better than 7 or 9 to 1 like most hardways pay. Keep in mind that it's not all that great of a deal as these hop bets are only good for one roll. Hardways stay up until they hit, a soft number rolls or a shooter rolls a seven.
