The wagers at online casinos in the central part of the craps table layout (in front of the simulated stickman) are known as proposition bets. To make any of these wagers, you would choose to select it (depending on the software used) or click to put your chips in the designated area of the layout. Due to the simplicity of Internet gaming software and technology advances, many players think playing on the Internet is much easier than playing at land based facilities. The directions are simple and you avoid crowds and confusion. You can also remain free of pressure on the Internet too. Anyway, as far as proposition bets go in craps, they represent the worst gambles available in the game – so be aware. If you just have to make a prop bet, so be it – but for the most part you are throwing your money away. Stick to the better wagers (you can find these in our tips section under Craps). There are players out there that are into risk and do not mind making these risky bets, but in the long run – Prop bets are not the way to go. If you are into online gambling, craps is fun, but it is not a game you just start playing without full understanding of the many bets offered – if you do – you are again throwing your money into the wind. Unlike slots, which really take no major homework to play – craps, even though online casino software makes it easier to play, is not a game to play without first doing your homework.
Relying on Handicapping
When wagering on many sports games at online casinos, handicapping and overcoming the house advantage is pretty tough work. But, it can be done if you are disciplined and count on objective material and information rather than getting caught up in emotional decisions (like betting on a horse because you like its name instead of its abilities and stats). Betting with your heart is not the best thing to do. Avoid the exotic wagers, choose your sport and stick with it – do not try to be the know it all of too many sports at once if you are betting. If you lose move on and do not stew over it. Steer clear of trends (they always have and ending). Always be on the lookout for the best lines (point spreads). Be in total control of your money – manage it well. Betting on the underdog is fun, not betting with your heart – its fun. Sometimes you can win a lot of money on the underdog because the edge is typically very small on the underdogs when online gambling. Just be certain that you are making informed decisions. There is a big difference in a bad idea and an underdog bet. Have fun, and bet lawfully. After all, gaming is about fun, responsibility and winning right.
