Bad Bets – Stay Away From These Bets When You Are Throwing Dice!

Dice Combinations

Craps is a popular game that can be found in many casinos around the world.  While there are many different types of bets that can be made, some are riskier than others.   Single roll bets, or “Prop Bets” can be very risky for the player.

In craps, there are several bets that have a high house edge and are generally considered to be “bad bets” for players. The worst bet at a craps table is typically the “Any 7” bet, which is a proposition bet that the next roll of the dice will be a 7. This bet pays out at 4 to 1 odds, which can be tempting to some players. However, the house edge on this bet is very high, typically around 16.67%. This means that over time, the player is likely to lose a significant amount of money on this bet.

Another bad bet at the craps table is the “Hardways” bet, which is a bet that the shooter will roll a specific combination of doubles before rolling a 7 or another combination of the same number. For example, a Hardways bet on “hard 8” is a bet that the shooter will roll two 4s before rolling a 7 or a “soft 8” (which would be a 5 and a 3). The house edge on Hardways bets is also relatively high, typically around 9-11%, making them a risky proposition for players.
