Craps is a popular and well-known dice game that has been around for centuries. It’s played with a pair of dice on which players place their bets. When playing, the betting options are very diverse for this game, as there are many dice combinations.
You can opt to wager on the player or the house. For example, if I were to play against you, you can wager both against me, against other players and the house as well.
The popularity and widespread of this game lies in its simplicity and easiness to play. Unlike regular, classic craps, in this article, I’m going to talk about online craps, how to play them and what are the best craps playing options.
There are a lot of software providers in today’s gambling market, and I’m going to recommend to you what I found are the best and most quality ones. All of them have some pros and cons (which I’ll list later), so before you decide to play in them, I would recommend that you check them out a little more.
The following three software providers (not in any particular order) are the ones that impressed me the most. They are Microgaming, Playtech, and NetEnt. If you are into craps games, be sure to check these providers out, note that specific rules and terms apply.
You should read their T&C’s before putting any of your money, as it varies from company to company. Also of the three listed, I should warn you that it’s unavailable from citizens of certain countries (including the US) to play these games.
Microgaming offers a few popular casinos that have the same craps game included in it. I’ve tried the free version of it, and I had a very positive experience playing. The game is straightforward yet engaging to play.
You just click to throw the dice, as there is no option to affect the throw by moving your mouse. In my opinion, three Microgaming based casinos are best for craps: Spin Palace, Ruby’s Fortune and Platinum Play.
They all offer the same craps game, though the bonuses may vary, and you should check them out before choosing any of the three.
Out of the three providers I’ve chosen to talk about, maybe the most graphically and aesthetically pleasing is the software created by Playtech. I found almost 50 different casinos using their craps game, and for a good reason, it is one of the best looking games out there today.
If you tried to play craps in a land-based casino and are just looking to transition over to online gambling, I would recommend you go with NetEnt. They are one of the few providers that have the same rules implemented as you would find in a traditional land-based gambling house.
There are, a lot of differences when playing in a land-based casino and going for the online option. Since you’re reading this article, I'll assume that you, like me, prefer playing online. There are some things you should know, and I’ll give you some advice about how to play more effectively and efficiently.
First of all, I think you’ve realized that the best benefit of online casinos is that you get to play when you want, for how long you want. You can try the free versions of the game and play them until you get good and confident enough so that you can play for real money.
I advise you to set your speed and play progressively more aggressive as you get more experienced. Online craps games give you the option of betting as much or as little money you desire, anywhere from $1 to $1000.
However, when playing for real money, you have to realize that these online winnings will take longer than regular ones for you to receive it.
All in all, craps are a great way to have fun and get a taste of the casino atmosphere. I’ll recommend you to start with a few free rounds of craps, to get a taste of it. Once you get the hang of the game, start with some of the websites I’ve listed above, and I’m sure that you’ll not only have fun but also win a nice amount of side money.
