Reducing the house edge with supplementary bets
The key to Craps strategy is by sticking to:
This is because these type of bets carry the lowest house advantage, all other bets should be considered sucker bets and avoided.
Furthermore if the outcome if any of these four types of bets are not resolved in the following roll (i.e. a point is established) the player has the option of making a 'Supplementary' bet (also known as 'Odds' bet) which are paid at TRUE ODDS.
As 'Supplementary' bets are paid at true odds, this dilutes the house advantage. Consequently the more you make the lower the house advantage. Here are the effects on the house advantage:

Typically the player is allowed to make a 'Supplementary' bet up to 2x the initial bet on online casinos.
How to make a supplementary bet
Applying this Craps strategy at online casinos can be quite tricky as there is no obvious betting area on the Craps table flagging these types of bets. On typically to make a 'Supplementary' bet for a 'Pass/Don't Pass Line' bet you merely have to click on the same bet square you wish to supplement.
e.g. On a 'Pass Line' bet, after a point is established you can make 'Supplementary' bets by clicking on the 'Pass Line' area.
In the case of 'Come/Don't Come' bets, after the following roll (if you didn't win nor lose) your bet is moved into the 'Place' bets area on whichever number the point value was rolled. Simply click on that number square where the bet has been moved to.
e.g. On a 'Come' bet, after a point is rolled, say 5. To make a 'Supplementary' bet click on the 5 square in the 'Place' bets area.
