    I've been playing Win Craps for about 2 weeks. I try to work on some sort of stratagy but I seven out before I can make any money. Do you make money by taking it down or what. I hit some points but when i finally 7 out, i'm only up a few bucks. Help me anyone

    We need to know what strategy you are using before we can offer any specific advice. As a shot in the dark I will say that it sounds like you are making too many (possibly bad) bets and/or using a winning progression that is too aggressive for your goals.

    Have you been re-seeding The RNG?
    I have always considered playing WinCraps is like betting against a random roller. You have to look for trends one time the thing rolled 7 sevens in a row. Then other times it will set some points and then seven out. th more you paly it the better you can see how the dice are rolling. I have got up to about 8000.00 on a 500.00 buy in. Wish that work at the casino!!

    You need to jump into a game as if it is the HOTTEST game ever to happen on that table. If you are playing minimum bets and too conservative, you will never make any serious money on a Craps table. You vary your bets. Win, increase your action. Losing, hunker down until your bank roll in the chip rack begins to show progress.

    Your BEST teacher. WATCH from behind a table. Watch the players that seem to take advantage of a spurt in good numbers being rolled and then... get as far away from the table as you can with your profits. Some of the Missouri Casinos have upper levels and I could watch several Craps tables, the dealers and the players. As a former dealer and a casual player I watch some pretty lousy player betting going on. Don't place bets according to the prior action on the table. A crowded table gathers from a hot session and then when the table turns cold, the "former" winners wander off to lick their wounds and wonder what happened to that profit... Don't get me wrong. I had dealers who should have known better, from dealing and watching various play action... and they did some of the dumbest strategy in their play. So as a player, you are learning. As dealers, at times, they might be better off playing Bingo.

    My first TWO YEARS were an expensive classroom. I took strategy advice from "seasoned players" that had no business playing Craps nor be getting close to a table, but sticking with a Slot Machine was more their future. There are a lot of tested Craps players on this Forum. Get yourself a $15 felt Craps layout and test their games. Nobody's game will pay off all the time, but minimize the house PC by playing MORE on FEWER bets. Watch the bankroll of the guy who plays the 4,5,6,8,9,10 disappear. The game gets hot, you are envious of the aggressive game. When it turns cold, the chips wander off like the ice cubes in the watered down drink.

    This is a life time pursuit of the "perfect game play" and after two weeks... you are going to have the ride of your life! Read Scarne on Dice by John Scarne. After reading, you will think you should stay home and play cards with the kids, but it is a somber truth that ALL Casino games are slanted in the favor of the house. Some less so than others... and Craps is a good game to stick with. Good luck and get a pair of Casino dice to practice with.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I will stick with the 6-8 with odds. If point is 6, i'll put 12 on 8 and vice versa. If my chips start to stack up then ill try 5 or 9.
