How to Use Progression Strategy in a Craps Game

Progression is a Craps strategy that aims to improve the chances of winning. Or reduce the chances of losing. Players who use this strategy say it works when a controlled shooter leads the game. That means a shooter can increase the occurrence of 7 or any other point numbers from random. When playing craps at a table with a random shooter, the progression strategy does not work. On the contrary, sticking to the strategy can lead to more losses than gains.

How to Use Progression Strategy in a Craps Game

Popular Progression Strategies

Most players take advantage of the flexible betting limits in craps to maximize their stake. As a result, a win leads to the players winning huge sums. One of the progression strategies that work in most tables is the up-a-unit progression. In this, players add a certain amount to their bet every time a point hits. The other widely used strategy alternates between two approaches:

  • Press-And-Pull- A player presses the place bet when the number hits and pulls profits in case of a hit
  • Pull-And-Press- A player pulls the profits from one hit and continues by shifting between pulling and pressing

Aggressive Progression Strategy

Players sometimes decide to go big or go home in online game craps. If that’s you, then an aggressive strategy is what you should use. Experienced players recommend playing aggressively when the shooter has made numerous throws without landing a seven. In such a case, you would have raked in enough profits from the casino. Therefore, raising the stakes would be in your best interest. Here is how to play with an aggressive progression strategy in craps:

  • Increase your bet by half in each throw by the shooter

By using this strategy, you average more cash in your bets overally. Therefore, your profits will be massive when the numbers hit.
