A popular saying goes, "You win some, you lose some." This is true of life in general and gambling is not an exception. However, you should not take this to mean that you should just accept losses lying down. If there is a way for you to cut on your losses and win more, then by all means, you should go ahead and grab that opportunity. It is in this light that we now look at some of the bad habits that will lead you to more losses than wins in the game of craps.
You do not set out to win. Another popular adage says that it is all in the mind. If such as this case, and there are a lot proponents for it, going out to the game without a winning attitude will only handicap you and make you more likely to lose big time. Sure, some may say that what is more important is the fun and enjoyment and I will not argue with that. I will say, however, that it is definitely more fun and enjoyable to be winning than losing. That having been said, study the odds and percentages and go at it with a strategy. Learn also when a particular tactic is no longer working for you.
Corollary to the above, make simple but good bets because yes, there are bad bets. Study the game of craps to know what kinds of bets you should be making to win more often than you lose.
Keep in mind that while you may have a goal to win, the casinos likewise have the goal to take and keep your money. And more often than not, they do, which is why they can keep on operating in the first place. So be realistic about your chances and learn to expect some losses.
Establish a bankroll. Know how much you have and how long you intend to play, so that you also know when you should be walking away.
Finally, leave your superstitions at home. Craps may be a game of chance but it is not improved by your unfounded beliefs.
