Right And Wrong Come Bets In Online Craps


Online craps offers a bet called Come. Newbie players tend to avoid it because the payout is only even money and the bet can take multiple rolls to get resolved. Newbie players are also attracted to the high payout bets, which are in fact sucker bets with high house edges. The Come bet offers a house edge of only 1.4%. If you want to succeed in online craps you have to make this bet your friend.

The Come bet can be placed only after the come out roll, which is the first roll of a new session. 7 or 11 on the first roll after the Come bet is an automatic winner. On the other hand, 2, 3 or 12 on the first roll is an automatic loser. Any other number rolled becomes the point for this particular Come bet. After that the Come bet wins if the point is rolled before 7 and loses if 7 is rolled before the point. If any other number is rolled the Come bet gets carried forward.

Aggressive online craps players can place multiple Come bets at the same time. After a point is established, you can place another Come bet before the next roll. You will then have a situation with multiple Come bets on the table, each having its own point. Placing multiple Come bets has a risk that you should be aware of. If any point is rolled then only the corresponding Come bet will win. However, if 7 is rolled then all the Come bets on the table will immediately lose.

The important bets in online craps have a corresponding wrong bet. There is an interesting piece of history here. In order to neutralise accusations of the dice being loaded, the craps operators allowed punters to bet against the outcome. These bets came to be known as wrong bets. The wrong bet for Come is called Don’t Come. The Don’t Come bet also has to be placed after the come out roll on a separate area in the online craps layout marked Don’t Come. The bet works in a reverse manner. A 7 or 11 is an automatic loser and a 2, 3 or 12 is an automatic winner. Once the point is established, the Don’t Come bet loses if the point is rolled before a 7. It wins if a 7 is rolled before the point. The payout is again even money and the house edge is 1.4%.
