The Hard Way Bets in Online Craps
Have you ever played the Hard Way bets in online craps? Let’s
take a look at these four wagers you can make when playing online
Hard Way bets are where you are looking to hit a 4, 6, 8, or
10 before you roll a 7. But you have to roll them the hard way
which means for a four you need 2-2, for a six you need 3-3, for
an eight you need 4-4 and for a ten you need 5-5. And keep in
mind that when you are playing a Hard Way bet that if you roll
your number and it is not the Hard Way it is a loser. For example,
if you were playing a Hard Six you need to roll 3-3. The other
two combinations, 1-5 and 2-4 are losers.
The payoffs for hitting a Hard 4 are 7 to 1, a Hard 6 is 9 to
1, a Hard 8 is 9 to 1 and a Hard 10 is 7 to 1.
It sounds great to hit a nice payoff of 7 to 1 or 9 to 1 but
the bad news is that the house advantage on Hard Way bets is between
9 and 11 percent. That makes Hard Way bets one of the worst bets
you can make in the online casino. Compare that percentage to
the less than 2 percent house edge on the pass bet or don’t
Keep in mind that at most online casinos you can’t make
Hard Way bets until after the come out roll.
