High Limit Craps

Enjoy the thrill of the roll in high limit craps.

Craps is one of those casino games (either online or in a more traditional setting) that on the surface is easy to play but whose betting patterns can be mind-bogglingly difficult to master. High limit craps takes this game to yet another level. At its heart it is a game of chance, but that certainly doesn’t mean there is no strategy involved.

High limit craps might more accurately be called ‘no limit craps’ as it removes the barrier of maximum wagers that can be placed on a craps roll. Those fortunate enough to have deep pockets and a large bankroll are more usually the ones prepared to stake more on the roll of the craps dice. As with so many casino games, as the risk goes up so too does the amount of money you can win (probably not to forget heart rates either). In land-based casinos, craps games will often be restricted by a minimum bet, which sets the wagering bar at a certain level.

The craps gambling permutations are too numerous to mention here, but the game itself is straightforward. The dice roller or craps shooter is the key figure. Bets can either be made on the craps shooter and the dice falling between a range of numbers, or against a particular outcome. Once the bets have been placed, the craps shooter rolls the dice.

When played on an actual table the dice are required to bounce off the opposite end of the table though online, the software automatically does this. The first roll of the dice is known as the come out roll. Craps shooters look to avoid the numbers 2, 3 and 12, otherwise it signals the end of their turn and they are replaced by another craps shooter.

In online versions, the house edge is low, making it an attractive proposition for high limit craps players. It’s hard to beat the energy and thrill of playing craps around a packed casino table, but the online versions attempt to recreate that as best as possible through the magic of casino software.
