Want to know how to grind out a profit playing craps?

The term “grinding” in craps means making a very
small amount of money on a very consistent basis.

Here’s how the pros do it:

One way to grind out profits is to bet don’t come bets and
make a corresponding place bet on the same number.

For example, if the point is four or 10, you can place either
number for $5 to balance out your $10 don’t come bet. If the seven rolls, you’ll
win $5 ($10 minus $5) but if the four or 10 rolls, you only lose just $1 ($9
minus $10) instead of $10.

If you bet at a higher level you can make bets that will win
if either the point or the seven rolls. For example, if you have a $25 don’t
come bet that goes to the six or eight, you can place either number for $24. If
the seven rolls, you win $25 for your don’t come bet and lose your $24 place
bet, giving you a $1 profit. And, if the six or eight rolls, you win $28 for
your place bet and lose your $25 don’t come bet, which still gives you a
profit of $3.

You can use the same $25 don’t come bet on a five or nine
point and place either number for $20. If the seven rolls you win $25 for your
don’t come bet and lose $20 on your place bet, giving you a $5 profit. If the
five or nine rolls, you win $28 for the place bet and lose your $25 don’t come
bet, which gives you a $3 profit.

Finally, with a $25 don’t come bet on a four or 10 point,
you can place either of those numbers for $15. If the seven rolls, you win $25
for the don’t come bet and lose the $15 place bet, giving you a $10 profit. If
the four or 10 rolls, you win $27 for the place bet and lose the $25 don’t
come bet, which still puts you ahead by $2.

Another method is to make a $12 don’t pass bet and then
place the same number either for $12 (if the point is six or eight) or $10 (if
the point is four, five, nine or 10).

On points of four or 10, you’ll make $2 ($12 don’t pass
bet minus $10 place bet) if the seven rolls, or $6 ($18 place bet minus $12 don’t
pass bet) if the four or 10 rolls.

On the five and nine points, you’ll make $2 ($12 minus $10
or $14 minus $12) no matter what happens.

And on points of six or eight you break even ($12 minus $12)
if the seven rolls and make $2 ($14 minus $12) if the six or eight rolls.

Grinding tends to produce small profits, but on a very
consistent basis. It allows the crapshooter to play for longer periods of time,
thus garnering more comps.

Now you know the secret of grinding out a profit.
