One Roll bets are found in the same box that one would find the Hardway bets. There are a total of four One Roll Bets a player can make: on Snake Eyes/1&1 (30-to-1 odds), on Boxcars/5&6 (30-to-1 odds), on Ace Deuce/1&2 (15-to-1 odds) and on Yo-leven/5&6 (15-to-1). These bets are straight forward and are sure to bring your great prizes if you happen to get lucky. By looking at their odds, Roll Bets are not the easiest to win, but are nonetheless very lucrative.

Any Craps and Sevens Bets

Any Craps Bets are winners when a 2, 3 or 12 appear on the dice. This bet is made in the same box layout belonging to One Roll Bets and Hardway Bets. Any Craps Bets pay 7-to-1.

Big 6, Big 8 Bets

The Big 6 and Big 8 bets are found at the bottom right corner of the Online Craps table. Big bets are winners if a 6 or 8 is rolled and will pay even bets. Note that these bets are separate bets from each other; if you wish to play both the 6 and the 8, you will have to place two separate wagers on the layout

Buy Bets

Buy Bets allow players to pick certain numbers and bet on them. The numbers that players can choose are the same as in Come and Don’t Come Bets, namely 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10. This type of bet offers players true odds (2-to-1) on the 4 and 10, 3-to-2 on the 5 and 9, and 6-to-5 on the 6 and 8. Online casinos, like all land based casinos, will take a commission on your win (known colloquially as a ‘vig’) since they are permitting you to make your very own pick. Betting 1 credit on the 5, for example, will give you a total payout of 2.42. In Buy Bets a 7 will lose all your bets, so be careful on the amount of Buy Bets you have opted to place on the grid. To place Buy Bets, click on the ‘Buy’ portion of the grid between the actual number and the ‘Win’ block below.

Lay Bets

Lay bets are exactly opposite to Buy Bets. Again, these bets engage the 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10 grid, but the main difference here is that you will be hoping that a 7 is rolled before the number you have placed your wager on. The house will again charge you a vig, which means that in the instance of betting 1 credit on the number 4, for example, your winning amount will be set at 1.47. With Lay Bets, the houses edge varies between 2.4% and 4%, depending on the number you are betting on.

Lose Bet

Placing bets to lose is essentially wagering on specific numbers and hoping that a 7 is rolled before that number. Lose Bets also make part of the numerals grid found above the ‘Come’ layout.

Here are the odds found on the Lose Bets Grid:

4: 5-to-11 odds
5: 5-to-8 odds
6: 4-to-5 odds
8: 4-to-5 odds
