Craps (dice)

Craps is considered by many to be the most exciting game in any casino. If it's a hot table, you will hear the noise.

There are many varieties of wagering, and as a result, Craps can also be a complicated game. There are some simple bets that you can make to start with and the odds on these are quite favourable.

How to play

The basic principle is to bet on, or against, the numbers that will be thrown by the "shooter" i.e. the player who throws the dice. You must place your bets while the dice are in the centre of the table.

The most basic bet is placed on the "Pass Line" before the shooter rolls the dice. If the shooter rolls 7 or 11, you and the shooter win, and the shooter keeps the dice to roll again. If the shooter hits 2, 3 or 12, the bet is lost but he remains the shooter after making a point, and continues to roll the dice until he rolls a 7 and the game is lost.

If you want to bet against him, you place your bet on the "Don't Pass" line and the rules are entirely reversed except that if, on his first roll, the shooter rolls 12, it is a stand-off (you neither win nor lose).

After the roll has begun and the shooter has a point, you can make a bet by placing it in the "Come".

The same rules apply to you as if the shooter were making a first roll - if the next roll is 7, you win.

if it is a 2, 3 or 12, you lose; if it is any other number, that becomes your "Come Point". For you to win this time, it must be rolled again before a 7. If a 7 comes first, the bet is lost.
