Hard Way Craps Bets

Date Published: May 13, 2016

When players access a game of Craps at a land or online casino, they will find there are many different betting options provided. Each bet will have its own odds and there are many bets that can provide massive returns on wagers that are placed. Experienced players will know about Hard Way bets, which are some of the hardest bets to win on the game. However, these games also offer some of the best possible payouts, so they are quiet appealing to high rollers or those with larger casino budgets who will be able to play the game for a longer period of time.

The Hard Way bets include 10, 8, 6 or 4 and players will have to roll a pair that equals one of these numbers. The result must appear before any 7 or Easy Way is rolled in order to collect a win. The goal is to create one of these four numbers from a single roll by getting a pair on the dice.

The payouts for these bets will vary and are usually 9:1 and 7:1 depending on which number has been bet on at the table. While the payouts are quite appealing, the house edge is drastically increased when these bets are placed and can be anywhere from 9% to 11%. With the pass line bet only having a 0.85% house edge, this is obviously a huge jump. The only benefit is the larger payout, especially when players have placed a sizeable bet on the game.

When examining the payouts, players will find that the true odds of a 6 or 8 hard way bet is 10:1, but the casino will only offer a payout of 9:1, so there is a 9% edge to these bets. When betting on 4 or 10, the true odds are 8:1, but pay only 7:1, offering an 11% edge to the bets. Many players believe the hard way bets would pay more, but the reason for this is due to the fact that these bets will stay active on the table as long as a seven or easy way win is not rolled. Since these bets stay on the table more often the overall payouts are less than a one roll bet that may be placed.

Before each roll, the croupier will ask the player if their hard way bet is on or off, so they do have some control over how long the bet remains active on the table.
