Complete guide to playing online craps for real money

Introduction

Betfair Casino opened in 2006 and they have some of the best offers and features for online gamblers.  Betfair Casino has over 150 great games to choose from, including Craps, BlackJack, Roulette and Slots.  You can also use Betfair’s world-leading betting exchange and poker room.  For the record, Betfair Casino accepts US players.

The best thing about Betfair Casino is their “Zero Lounge”, which offers popular games such as Roulette, BlackJack and Baccarat with a 0% house edge.  No other casino offers this, meaning you get incredible value playing at Betfair Casino.

Software

Betfair’s software is non-downloadable, meaning you can play games instantly in your browser without having to download any hefty software packages.  All you have to do is sign up an account and you can start playing.  There is also a downloadable version for Mac users.  The graphics at the Betfair Casino are realistic, cool and impressive.  The sounds and audio from playing at Betfair add an element of realism. For example, you can hear the dealer’s voice plus the casino games have an atmospheric ambience.  Overall Betfair Casino runs very smoothly and the menu navigation is easy to understand and find alternative games.

Bonus

Betfair gives users two choices!  Betfair Casino offer players a £5 no-deposit bonus (meaning you get a free £5 to play with just for signing up), however they also let players choose a 100% up to £50 instant deposit bonus.  This lets you play with £50 worth of free chips in any games as soon as you deposit.

Games

You can play over 150 different games online at Betfair, including craps, roulette, blackjack, baccarat, video poker and slots.  Betfair Casino is split into two sections, the Zero Lounge and the Main Lounge.  The latter contains over 40 different popular games, each with superb graphics and flowing gameplay.  However, the Zero Lounge is where you should be playing.  Here games have a 0% house edge, and there is literally nothing else like it online.  Players can choose from Zero BlackJack, Zero Roulette, Zero Baccarat etc…

The craps table is displayed very neatly. It offers a very realistic setting, and you can alter the size of the screen by maximising the browser.  You get a view of the entire table, and placing bets is simple using the onscreen buttons.

One of my favourite things about Betfair Casino is the ability to place bets on certain casino games using the same rules as their sports betting exchange.  This means you can watch hands of Texas Holdem Poker for instance, and place side bets with players, on the outcome of the game (or even specific hands).

Support & Deposit Options

Player support comes with 24/7 phone and email support.  Unfortunately there is no live chat system, however I’ve found that with emails I get a quick response anyway.

You can deposit online using any of these methods: VISA, MasterCard, UK debit cards (Delta, Switch, Solo, Maestro), Lasercard, Visa Electron, Cheque, Bank transfer, Western Union, Moneybookers, PayPal and NETeller.
