Big 6

Home » Big 6

In craps, the “Big 6” bet is a wager that a 6 will be rolled before a 7. This bet is placed on a specific area of the craps table designated for the Big 6. Here are some key points about the Big 6 bet:

  1. Simplicity: The Big 6 is a straightforward bet. If the shooter rolls a 6 before a 7, the bet wins.
  2. Payout: The payout for a winning Big 6 bet is typically even money (1:1), meaning if you bet $10, you win $10 plus your original bet back.
  3. Placement: The Big 6 bet is located in the corner of the craps table, often near the Big 8 bet, which is a bet that an 8 will be rolled before a 7.
  4. House Edge: The Big 6 (and Big 8) bets are generally not recommended because they have a higher house edge compared to other craps bets. For example, betting on the 6 through a Place bet offers better odds and payouts.

The Big 6 is an easy-to-understand bet but is less popular among experienced players due to its relatively unattractive odds and payouts. Nonetheless, it remains a part of the array of bets available in the game of craps.
