The House Edge

The House Edge on Craps Bets

Crap games have some of the widest house edge spreads of any casino game. On the good end you have no house edge on the odds bets and just 1.41% on the Pass Line. On the bad end you have house edges over 10% such as on bets such like the Proposition 2 and 12.

* Note About the Odds Bets

While the house edge is in fact zero for the odds bet there is of course a catch in the fact that you have to have made a Pass Line or Don't Pass Line bet to be able to make the bet. The actual house edge on the combined bets is determined by the amount you can bet on the odds.

Typically online you will only find 3X odds which makes the combined house edge on the Pass Line Odds 0.47% and for the Don't Pass Odds 0.34%. The higher the multiple you can bet on the odds the lower the house edge so for example a game with 100X odds has a house edge of just 0.02%.
