Welcome to Craps Journey.
I have been playing Craps since 1992 when I was just 18. So it’s been awhile now. It’s my favourite game to play at the casino. However I didn’t get serious about learning how to play until 2015.
I’ve since found out that I’m a dark side shooter, and always have been, I just didn’t know it had a name.
I can remember back in 1992 fresh out of high school and being allowed onto the casino floor trying the different games with my friends at the casino. None of them really grabbed me, except craps.
In fact I liked it so much I can remember spending hours playing with just $50, no other game allowed me to do that. I haven’t played another casino game since.
I would visit the casino every couple of years and always come away even or with a small profit just from dark side don’t pass (DP) line bets. Never anything else. In all those years not one other type of bet. In 2015 I thought I really should learn how to play craps properly.
I found some wonderful websites and videos online that I wish I had of found many years ago. In terms of learning I’ve jumped head first into the deep end of the pool and found precision shooting, dice setting, dice influencing, craps strategy, craps betting management, the list goes on.
I am amazed and thankful that there is such a niche undercurrent of knowledge around just this one game of dice.
Basically this website exists to document my adventure into the world of craps, my favourite game, from complete novice to eventual mastery. Let’s see how far the rabbit hole goes.
PS I live in Australia, and Craps is not as popular as elsewhere in the world. There are some states in Australia that while they have casinos don’t have any Craps tables at all. I hope to one day travel the world and experience the different casinos and Craps tables.
