The Increase Odds System

Craps: The Increase Odds System
by Wilson of

Several craps enthusiasts insist that the increase odds system applied correctly is the best system to use while playing craps. I agree. Remember that the odds bet is the only bet on the table that has no casino advantage. Therefore it makes sense to take advantage of this option. The best way to rack up big wins at the craps table is to consistently increase your odds bet while the numbers are showing. This system involves wagering in two areas on the layout, the pass line and the come bet which will both be coupled with odds bets.

Here is one way to work the increase odds system:

Place a bet on the pass line by wagering the table minimum. For example, at a $5 minimum table you would simply bet one red chip on the pass line.

When the shooter establishes a point number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10) make a single odds bet on your pass line wager, and then make a $5 come bet. After your come bet is moved to the corresponding number make a single odds bet on the come point number. Now you have a bet on the pass line with single odds and on the come bet point with single odds. Make another come bet with single odds. Now stop betting, and simply wait for your numbers to hit.


Your objective is to have a pass line bet with single odds and two come bets with single odds. I would not suggest more than two come bets.When your numbers hit, no matter if itís the pass line or the come bet, stay with the $5 bet amount but increase your odds bet by doubling from $5 to $10 (double odds).While your numbers continue to hit you simply keep increasing your odds bets. Depending on the casino, you could increase your odds as much as 10 times or even higher (the former Binnions Horseshoe in Vegas used to offer 100x).

Here is an example of an odds bet increase sequence: 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, etc.)

If you are a more conservative player simply wait for two or three wins before you decide to increase your odds.

When you lose a wager simply start over by placing the bet again with single odds, weather it is on the pass line or a come bet.After a player sevens out do not bet until the next shooter wins a bet (7 or 11 on the come out roll) or establishes a point. Then begin your system again and stick to your plan.Letís say things are going well and you have won your projected session goal, but the table is still hot; now is the time to make a place bet on the 6 and 8 if they are not already covered. Why? These numbers have a greater chance of showing compared to the rest of the point numbers and you are now in a position to ďput the icing on the cakeĒ and eat it too!

By using the increase odds system you are making wagers with less than 1 percent house advantage. Every time you win you will increase your bet by making a non-casino advantage wager. Also, you will have three numbers working for you at all times which will pay off bigtime on a hot roll!

When you are ahead you will place bets on the 6 and 8 for 1.5 percent casino edge which is still a pretty decent percentage when considering other wagers on the table.

Finally, you will have patience and control of your play by waiting for the shooter to establish a win before beginning your system. If the dice are hot you win a lot, if the dice are cold you avoid losing your bankroll because the system requires you to wait for a win before you begin. Patience always pays the player in the end.

Luck to ya.
