As a new craps player you have
probably seen a hot craps table from a distance before and you know how
exciting the game can get. If, however, you take a seat at one of these
tables you will likely find out the hard way, just how much activity is
really taking place. Even if you have done your research and learned
some of the basic rules, there are just too many expectations for a new
player to adjust to at one time. If you are new to the game, keep
reading to learn how an online casino might be the perfect place to
start playing craps.
For most people playing any game
in a casino is not a regular occurrence. Generally you might only find
yourself at a live casino during a vacation, or a special event. During
these leisure times, the last thing you want to do is frustrate
yourself by jumping into a craps game blind. To help make this first
live game a little bit easier your best option is to start playing the
game online. To start playing craps online you will need to pick a good
online casino. There has been much said on this topic, but the most
important aspect to keep in mind when comparing
casinos is reliability. You do not want the game to crash every
five minutes and you definitely do not want the casino to take your
money and run.
So you have picked a safe,
reliable, and fun online casino. Here you can start to play craps in a
very novice-friendly environment. You can have your favorite craps
guides sitting right in front of you to keep you on track. You do not
have to worry about getting chips for your cash, or speak to the dealer
at all for that matter. You wont offend any other players or draw
unwanted attention from casino security by making an etiquette faux pa.
Without all the distractions and excess creature comforts you will be
able to focus entirely on playing the game properly, and avoid wasting
your hard fought winnings on martinis.
While you are playing online you
can start with the basic line bets at low limit tables. Once you
understand how these work you can slowly add the other bets to your
repertoire. Most people find they benefit most by adding one type of
bet each day of play, but you will want to keep the most comfortable
pace for you. Once you have experimented with every type of bet, play
with all of them until each type of craps bet is second nature to you.
It is easier to refer to a craps guide in the comfort of your own home
than in a crowded casino. Once you deeply understand how each type of
bet works, you can take some time to learn some craps etiquette. By
this point you should be ready to go to a live casino and confidently
start playing. Make sure you start at a low limit table and feel free
to ask questions. By starting online you should have a smooth
transition to live play, and feel at home in no time at all.
