As you can see a 7 is the luckiest number as it falls out more often than the other numbers and practically all the craps rules deal with this number. However, it can be both lucky and not. Many bets are winners in case the number you wager on falls out first than a 7 or vice versa. In accordance with table the hardway bets are the least lucky as the winning probabilities are very low – 1/36. And in conclusion, we suggest you to choose Pass and Come bets that has the best odds. Six and eight bets are safe as well cause they have the next biggest chances.
