- Pass Line. This bet is one of the most popular not only in Hammerlock Craps, but in the whole game. If a pair of dices gives 7 or 11, the Shooter wins. 2, 3 or 12 is a loss for the gambler. The rest variants start the second stage Point Roll. Here the gambler should throw the same point, as on the first stage. If the dices show “7”, party for the Shooter is over.
- Don’t Pass Line. In two words this bet is vice versa variant to Pass Line.
- Come. This bet is similar to Pass Line. The main difference is that Come bet is made after the point is set, as Pass Line is to be made before Come out Roll.
- Don’t Come. It’s an equivalent to Don’t Pass Line with the same difference as Come bet and Pass Line bet have.
Main secrets of Craps Hammerlock system
They say that Hammerlock system is the best way to beat any casino all the time. The main secret of the strategy is in combining 2-4 types of place bets and odd bets. By making these bets, the gambler plays against the Shooter.
The place bets create the main structure, when odds’ bets play the supportive role and are put into Don’t Pass area, right below the place bets. Hammerlock involves the use of up to 8 different bets. It’s interesting that the main and the second sections can be used as not connected strategies, but it won’t be Hammerlock then.
The main structure is set by making the bets on 5, 6, 8 and 9. 5 and 9 are in multiplies of five, while 6 and 8 are in multiplies of 6. Hammerlock Craps implies 5 bets’ stages. The first one is a 12 USD bet on the numbers 6 and 8 with further bets on all numbers with the values 22 USD, 44 USD, 66 USD and 88 USD respectively. The bets should be placed right after the Shooter has established the point.
First stage bets are to be taken down right one of them is on the table. When the roll is winning one on the next stages, the “lucky” bet is to be taken down, while the rest ones are left for another roll. After the next win takes place, all the bets are to be taken down. If seven out takes place, new bets should be placed only after the Shooter establish new point.
These are the general rules of the strategy. There are always some nuances, but understanding the basics, other details will be absorbed without any problems.
