The Martingale, also known as “double up and catch up”, easily wins the title of the most popular betting system of all times and is applicable to many casino games including roulette, blackjack and of course, craps.
As the name itself indicates, the Reverse Martingale is the opposite of the standard version of the popular betting system. Logically, it follows players who decide in favor of the reverse version are expected to double their wagers after each winning roll of the dice and then reduce them back to the starting bet unit after a loss.
Many players tend to confuse the third strategy on our list with the aforementioned Reverse Martingale. Such mistakes can be attributed to the name of the system. Nevertheless, the Doubling strategy differs from the Reverse Martingale in one very important aspect – in this case, bettors do not collect their winnings but leave them on the layout instead, thus, their bets are doubled.
Many craps players tend to forget previous dice rolls do not influence the outcomes of the throws that are to follow. Often players fall prey to the so-called “Gambler’s fallacy”, believing that if a given dice combination, say Yo-leven, has been rolled prior to a Deuce for example, another Deuce will be rolled the next time the dice total adds up to a Yo.
Many experienced players tend to incorporate combination bets into their betting patterns. The aim here is to increase one’s chances of winning by placing several low-risk bets. The best example is to combine Pass and Come bets as these follow the same rules.
Players can apply this strategy only if they are appointed as shooters for the following rolls. The idea here is to set the dice in your hand in such a way so as to cause them to bounce and roll a particular number.
