# Best Tips and Tricks On Iron Cross Craps Strategy

Recently we have written about craps on Casinoz because it seems to us that this excellent game is unfairly deprived of users' attention. This article deals with one of the most popular craps betting systems. You should know its basic rules and master craps terminology to understand what we are talking about.

This betting system is called Iron Cross. It should be admitted that it is fascinating but cannot help users overcome the house edge, like all other systems.

## Iron Cross Strategy Description

This betting strategy is straightforward.

All you have to do is to make a field bet combined with place bets on the numbers 5, 6, and 8.

Bets of the same size are usually made, although some players believe it is necessary to increase bets according to a certain progression or vary them in any other way.

If any bet loses or is removed from the layout after the payout occurs, you should make it (of the same size) again and keep playing. Let's take a look at all the possible options.

• If 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, or 12 is rolled, a field bet is paid. The place bets are left on the table layout.
• If you roll 5, a place bet on 5 wins and paid 7:5, but a field bet loses. The other two bets remain on the table layout.
• If 6 or 8 is rolled, the corresponding place bet wins and is paid 7:6, but a field bet loses. The other two bets remain on the table layout.
• If 7 is rolled, all four bets lose!

Therefore, you can lose only in one case if 7 comes up. In all other situations, you win some money. To be sure, 7 is the most common dice combination since it is formed in one case out of six. You will win more frequently.

## Odds of Winning with Iron Cross

To make this betting system profitable, the payout for place and field bets should exceed the number of losses when seven is rolled. From the point of view of statistics, it is impossible over the long run.

In other words, the combination of unfavorable bets cannot make the whole system profitable.

There are the following house edges for different bets:

• Field bets- 2.78% (if casino pays 2:1 for 2 and 3:1 for 12)
• Place bets on 5 - 4%
• Place bets on 6 and 8 - 1.52%

Simple calculations show that if you follow this strategy, the house advantage will be 2.76% over the long run. If the field bet is always paid 1:1, the house edge rises to 3.87%.

## Unbeatable Iron Cross System

The Iron Cross betting system has a more profitable version called Unbeatable Iron Cross. We warn you that you should not deceive yourself since this strategy does not allow you to win consistently. Its title sounds too optimistic, but thanks to it, it has become even more popular on the Internet than the initial version.

According to this system, bets can be made as soon as a point is established. You make the following bets before you roll:

• \$5 on the field
• \$6 on 5, 6, and 8

Then you need to repeat all bets in case of their loss or win (like while using the traditional Iron Cross betting strategy). However, there is one fundamental difference. You have the same aim as those players who have made pass-line bets. You also don't want 7 to come up. Therefore, as soon as the pass line bet wins, you should stop repeating bets, which are removed from the table.

This is explained by the belief that seven should come up soon because it has not been rolled for a long time. Some players even hold a special account and stop betting at a particular stage.

But it is a mere delusion. In fact, a roll of the dice has no relation to the previous rounds. Even if 7 did not appear one hundred times in a row, the probability of loss would be the same in the 101st spin.

If a field bet is paid 1:1 in all cases, the house advantage is 3.34% when gamblers use the Unbeatable Iron Cross betting system. This is less than in the traditional version of this strategy but still higher compared to the use of pass line/do not pass line and odds bets.

## Conclusion

Statistical data provided above characterize the Iron Cross and Unbeatable Iron Cross very well. This is not the best way to play craps. However, if we consider that the casino customers often want rather have a good time than win, we can conclude that these strategies are pretty good.

If you get bored making pass line bets and strengthen them making odds bets, combine these tactics with the Unbeatable Iron Cross betting system. The gameplay will be much funnier, and the house edge will not be critical.

Fans of online craps can gamble at the following casinos: Rox casino and Betway. Moreover, craps can be found at any reputable casino.
