The Power Craps System

Craps: The Power Craps System
by Wilson of

This system is incredibly powerful when the dice are hot. Players make bets on the pass line with odds and then place bet the 6 and 8. Sound easy enough? Donít forget that the pass line with odds and the 6 and 8 are among the three best bets on the table, which explains why so many players use this system. Letís take a look at how the system works.


First of all, you want to make your pass line bet with single odds about the same as your place bets on the 6 and 8. For example, letís say you bet $5 on the pass line, then your odds bet should be $5 or $6 it depends on the particular point number. Now you have a total bet of $10 or $11 on the pass line with odds. Next, you will place bet the 6 and 8 for $12 each. Remember the 6 and 8 payoffs are at 7 to 6 (a more conservative player can bet $6 each, but the casino will only pay even money on that wager), so for every $6 you wager a win will pay you $7.


If you are a $5 bettor then I would recommend having a bankroll of no less than $350 in order to give the system staying power and a chance to work.

To get started, simply bet $5 on the pass line with single odds on whatever point number showing and then place bet $12 each on the 6 and 8. Thatís it; you are now officially up and running the system.

When your place bet wins only take 50% of the profit and add the rest to the original bet. The betting increase on the 6 and 8 should look something like this: $12, $18, $30, etc. This is why the system is called the ďpowerĒ system, as you can see it can generate a lot of cash quickly, and by profiting the 50% after each win the player will not be wiped out if the shooter sevens out. Take the same approach with the pass line and odds bet by bumping these bets up 50% after each win. Take down your place bet if itís the shooterís point number. Then start over with your $12 original bet when itís time make the place bet again and repeat the betting sequence.

Always follow any losing bet by making the minimum bet ($12 for the 6 and 8 place bet, and $5 for the pass line and appropriate odds). If you are a more aggressive gambler or simply have more funds to play with then you may want to make double odds bets. This will require you to up the place bets from $12 to $18 remember you want keep all of your bets close to the same amount for a balanced attack. However, if you do decide to go with the double odds version you will likely need at least a $500 bankroll.

I like this system a lot and I use it quite frequently with mostly great results. The system involves three low casino advantage bets, an easy to follow bet progression, and avoids devastating losses due to the 50% profit plan.

I was leaving Las Vegas (no pun intended) last January and I only had about 30 minutes available to chalk up one more session of craps. I was staying at the Mandalay and it was a quiet Sunday morning which is typical in Vegas after any Saturday night.

I approached the only craps table that was open and bought in for a couple hundred. The table minimum was $15 - I know, what a rip-off on a Sunday morning, but thatís what I get for the atmosphere.

Anyway, I was the only shooter and my wife watched as I made over $800 in 15 minutes. Sure the table minimum helped out a bit with the amount, but the system worked well as I managed to throw a lot of numbers especially 6ís and 8ís.

Give the system a try and if the dice are hot and the numbers are showing so will your profits! Luck to ya.
