About Nucleus Gaming Craps

We know you're expecting a green felt table – and upon first glance, the game might look bland... but don't be fooled!  Look closer and you’ll see a wooden craps table intentionally designed to look classier and more authentic.  You’ll notice a hint of yellow in the bet layout and royal blue pyramid rubber around the table with maroon edging.  This is further complemented by dark wood chip racks, gold inlays on the table sides and rich leather padding.

A smooth piano jazz piece plays in the background, with an upright bass lending the groove – the perfect complement to a stylish game suited for a VIP lounge.  From the placement of the chips to the dice concluding their roll on the table, the high-quality sounds are as realistic and smooth as the overall design.

Players can place a wide range of bets in the game, with minimum bets starting at just $1 and maximum bets going up to $500.  With such variety, everyone can play craps online for money at Juicy Stakes Casino.

The Basics of How to Play Online Casino Craps at Juicy Stakes

To play craps online for money at Juicy Stakes, first register an account and deposit funds into your account.  You can also grab a welcome bonus to play craps free!  Once logged in, navigate to the "Nucleus" tab in our games' library and select "Craps."

Once the craps table loads, the objective when you play craps online for money is to correctly predict the outcome of the roll of two dice.  The game starts with a "come out roll" – and depending on the outcome, bets can either win or lose.  Here are the steps to playing craps:

  1. Place Your Bet: Before the come out roll, place your bet on the table.  You can choose from various betting options, as discussed below.
  2. Roll the Dice: Once you’ve placed your better, you (the shooter), can click or tap on the roll button to roll the dice.  The outcome will determine whether the bet wins or loses.
  3. Resolve the Bet: Depending on the outcome of the roll, bets will either be paid out or collected.
  4. Repeat: If bets are paid out, you will roll the dice again for a new round of play.

Basic Nucleus Craps Bets, Odds & House Edges

When you play craps online for money, odds and payouts matter.  Click on the info icon for the full range of bets and their respective odds.  Here are some of the most common bets in Juicy Stakes craps:

  1. Pass Line Bet: The Pass Line Bet is the most popular bet in craps, and Nucleus Gaming offers it with a payout of 1:1.  The house edge for this bet is just 1.41%.
  2. Don't Pass Bet: The Don't Pass Bet is the opposite of the Pass Line Bet, and it pays out at 1:1.  The house edge for this bet is 1.36%, which is slightly lower than the Pass Line Bet.
  3. Come Bet: The Come Bet is similar to the Pass Line Bet, but it is placed after the come out roll.  The payout for this bet is also 1:1, and the house edge is the same as the Pass Line Bet at 1.41%.
  4. Don't Come Bet: The Don't Come Bet is the opposite of the Come Bet, and it pays out at 1:1.  The house edge for this bet is also the same as the Don't Pass Bet at 1.36%.
  5. Field Bet: The Field Bet is a one-roll bet that wins if the next roll is a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, or 12.  The payout for this bet varies depending on the number that is rolled, with 2 and 12 paying out at 2:1 and 3, 4, 9, 10, and 11 paying out at 1:1.  The house edge for this bet is 5.56%, which is high compared to other craps bets.
  6. Place Bet: The Place Bet is a bet on a specific number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10) and it wins if that number is rolled before a 7.  The payout for this bet varies depending on the number that is rolled, with 6 and 8 paying out at 7:6, 5 and 9 paying out at 7:5, and 4 and 10 paying out at 9:5.  The house edge varies ranges from 1.52% to 6.67%, depending on the number rolled.

Overall, Nucleus Gaming's craps bets offer a decent range of options for players, with relatively low house edges for the Pass Line Bet and Don't Pass Bet.  The Field Bet has a high house edge, so it may not be the best if you want to maximize your winnings when you play craps online for money.

The Place Bet offers a range of payouts and house edges depending on the number that is rolled, so be aware of these differences when making these bets.

Online Casino Craps Betting Systems

No strategy can help you play craps online for money and win.  It’s a game of luck.  That said, some players use betting systems to increase their odds of winning.  Note that no betting system can guarantee a win.

If you play craps online for money and you’re prepared to try anything to win more, here are some of the craps betting systems and what they entail:

  • Martingale System: This system involves doubling the bet after a loss in hopes of recouping the losses with a win.  It can be risky as it requires large amounts of money to cover the losses.
  • Paroli System: This involves doubling the bet after a win and resetting the bet to the original amount after a loss.  It is less risky but can lead to smaller wins.
  • Fibonacci System: This system involves betting the sum of the two previous bets.  It is less aggressive and can lead to smaller losses – but it may take longer to win.
  • Iron Cross System: With this system, players place bets on the 5, 6, and 8 while also placing a field bet.  It covers a large portion of the table and can result in frequent wins – but it also has a higher house edge.
