# Aggressive Craps Strategy

Strategy or the LB Attack Strategy. The Craps Attack Strategy consists of combining the DO and LB Attack Strategies in a unique way that increases your win rate, reduces your risk and accomplishes both using a lower bankroll. Craps is a very intimidating game for novices, and I have tried to make the game as understandable as possible. The faster you increase your bet, the more aggressive your strategy is. You should consider increasing your wager when a point is made provided that you play a pass line bet with 2 come numbers. Then, the next bet is increased and if you follow the aforementioned progression $10-$15-$20-$25, the second bet should be $15, but the come bets. What's the most aggressive pressing strategy that you have witnessed? I have seen a double press on the 6/8 ($18 to $42 to $90)-that's the same as $60 to $150 to $300- before the first profit is taken. I have seen the 4 pressed from $25 to $75 to $150 (take back $75). Personally I would press the 4/10 to $25 then start taking profits. May 7, 2016 - this is a more aggressive approach to strategy 2 which can payout a lot faster too.

**Playing a 'Hopping 7Â’s' Progression**

By Jerry 'Stickman'

Periodically people ask me about craps betting systems. Almost all of them rely on the premise that certain numbers are due because they havenÂ’t appeared for a while. I normally tell them that in a random you cannot beat the math of the game. The house edge is the house edge. In the long term you will lose the amount of money played times the house edge.

For many that is enough, but every so often someone says they have won a lot of money on a particular system and want me to look further into it. So periodically I will devote an article to exploring some of these systems.

This article will look at a 'Hopping 7Â’s' progression.

Here is the system as it was stated to me.

- Start over with each new shooter.
- Wait seven rolls before starting the progression
- When the bet hits, take the bet down along with the win.
- Start with a $3 bet. Starting with the first bet, the progression is: 3, 3, 6, 9, 15, 24, 39, etc. always adding the previous two bets together to determine the next bet in the progression.

Here is a table that shows the bet, amount invested, win amount (taking the bet down), and profit.

What we have here is a Fibonacci progression. This and the Martingale progression are well known in betting systems. In 'up as you lose' progressions, the thought is that when your number hits you will recoup your losses and garner a little profit. The Fibonacci progression is the less aggressive of the two.

Either of these progressions works as long as two things are true. The first is you must have adequate bankroll to make it through the inevitable losing streaks you will encounter. The amount you require can be very substantial. The last row in the above table represents the 17^{th} roll without a 7. While 17 rolls without a 7 appearing may be somewhat unusual, it is not that uncommon.

If the shooter goes 20 rolls without a 7 appearing, the bankroll required is almost $2,000.

If the shooter rolls just **five** more numbers without throwing a 7, the total invested is over $20,000.

And what is the shooter is **extremely** lucky and throws just 5 more numbers without a 7? Our hapless system player will have just over $225,000 invested.

If he should win on the 30^{th} roll, he will win $233,000+, so maybe he thinks it is worth it.

If our lucky shooter goes five more rolls without a 7, however, the investment skyrockets to almost $2.5 million. I donÂ’t know about you, but if I had that kind of money, I wouldnÂ’t risk it on a craps game.

The second consideration before using this system is something called table maximum. Virtually every craps game has a maximum bet ranging from $2,000 and up. Most of them are $10,000 or less. That means in the unusual but very possible case of someone going 25 rolls without a 7, this player is out his entire investment of over $20,000 and he cannot continue.

The math of the hop bet says that a player will lose 11.11 percent of all money wagered on a random shooter. That is what the math says. LetÂ’s see what some simulations say. I ran several simulations specifying a random shooter through an excellent software program called *Smart Craps* from DeepNet Technologies.

The first simulation did not put any limits on the maximum bet. It assumed an unlimited bankroll and no maximum bet limit at the craps table. It was very interesting watching the running edge percentage as the simulation progressed. For the first several seconds the expectation was a little over 103%. This means that if someone were playing this system and had the same results as the simulation, they would more than double their bets!

This came to an abrupt halt after about 96,000 rounds. At this point the simulation terminated because it couldnÂ’t handle the size of the bet being placed Â– over 2.2 **billion** dollars. It may have taken a while, but the long term hit at about 96,000 player rounds.

Next I put some limits on maximum bet size. I started with 1.1 billion dollars. If the simulation hit the limit, it would restart the progression; that is, wait for seven rolls without a 7, then begin betting the progression. After 10 million rounds, the expectation was 59 percent for the house! During the 10 million rounds the $1.1 billion limit was reached 7 times. This was much worse than what the math would indicate, but with such a large limit, the long term had most likely not yet been reached.

Three more simulations were run with limits of $10,000, $3,000 and $2,000. The results more closely matched the mathematical expectations.

As you can see, all of these fell much closer to the calculated expectations.

So what does this show? You may be lucky and win for a period of time. You may even win for a long period of time. You could also be very unlucky and lose very big for a while. Eventually, however the math will catch up with you.

In the long run, you cannot beat the math of the game with random shooters. You will lose the house edge of your bets times the amount bet. Accept the fact and bet the low house edge bets. Your bankroll will thank you.

May all your wins be swift and large and all your losses slow and tiny.

There are many variations to the 132 Inside Regression Strategy based on using either more aggressive or more conservative starting wagers and altering the number of hits that trigger an action, but we’ll look at the $132 starting strategy that seems to be most popular at the tables.

**After the point is established, you place the (5) & (9) for $30 each and the (6) & (8) for $36 each for a total investment of $132. After 2 hits, you regress your bets down to a total of $66 ($15 on the (5) & (9) and $18 on the (6) & (8). After 2 more hits, you regress your bets again down to $44 ($10 on the (5) & (9) and $12 on the (6) & (8). **

From here, you have a number of different options including taking your bets down, letting it ride, or increasing your wagers as your numbers hit.

The goal of the 132 Inside Regression Strategy is to collect big up front and immediately start lessening your risk as the prospects of a 7 increase as the rolls continue.

Let’s take a look at how it works.

**After the point is established**

**Place the (5) & (9) for $30 each, place the (6) & (8) for $36 each – Total $132**

**Collect $42**on your first hit – rack the winnings**Collect $42**on your second hit – rack it- You’ve now collected $84 in winnings on your 2 hits

**Reduce your place bets to $15 (5) & (9) and $18 (6) & (8) – Total $66**- Now, even if the (7) hits, you’ll have a net win of $18

**Collect $21**on your third hit – rack it**Collect $21**on your fourth hit – rack it- You’ve now collected an additional $42 in winnings for a net of $126

**Reduce your bets again to $10 (5) & (9) and $12 (6) & (8) – Total $44**- If the (7) hits, you’ll have won $126, lost $44 for a net $82 in winnings

**From here, if the (7) hasn’t hit yet, you have a number of different options**- Let it ride through the rest of the shooter’s rolls
- Take it all down after a predetermined number of hits
- Use a ‘collect and press’ strategy for the rest of the roll, or
- Any other strategy you’re comfortable with

For the short term, this strategy has its own advantages and disadvantages, but keep in mind, no strategy can alter the ‘house edge’ (casino advantage) in the long term.

**Advantages**

- Effectively reduces your risk after 2 hits and puts you in the win column after your first regression
- Works great on hot and warm tables and sometimes works on choppy table
- No contract bets (PL/Come) are utilized, so you can take your bets down anytime you want
- Keeps you in the game to take advantage of hot rollers

**Disadvantages**

- Big upfront investment risking $132 on the first rolls after the come out
- Needs a bigger bankroll to support several early Point 7 Outs
- No Pass Line bet so you can’t use this strategy when you have the dice
- Horrible for cold or cold/choppy tables

### Most Aggressive Craps Strategy

Aside from the early, up-front risk, this strategy has its merits, and it’s worked for a great many craps players in the right situations.

As always, experiment with this system and see if it fits your style of play and risk tolerance before putting actual money on the table. Also, before using this strategy, ensure your bankroll can support it.
