The Most Favorite Casino Game – Craps

To many people, Craps is their favorite casino game. It is fast, exciting and wild. It appears to be complicated at first, but in actuality it is very simple.

back to the topLet’s Play!

On the first roll (the come out role), the shooter is trying to establish a point with one of the following numbers: 4,5,6,8,9, 10. If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11 the wager is paid off at even money. If the shooter rolls a 2, 3 or 12 then the wager is lost. If the shooter rolls a point number, then it progresses to the next stage where the shooter has to roll the same number again before rolling a 7.

  1. Select a chip value of either $1, $5, $10, $25, or $100.
  2. Left-click on each betting area until the number of chips displayed equals the amount you wish to bet.
  3. To reduce your bet amount, right-click the chips on the table that you wish to reduce. Your bet will be reduced by the amount of the currently selected chip.
  4. Click Roll. The dice will come out, and the game is underway.

Craps uses two dice.

The two dice are added together for the total of the roll.

The Pass Bet

This is a bet that the shooter will throw a 7 or 11 on the come out roll, or alternatively, that the shooter will make the point.

The Don’t Pass Bet

This is the opposite of the Pass Bet. This bet is placed against the shooter and wins if craps (2, 3 or 12) is thrown on the come out roll or if the shooter fails to make the point. If a 12 is thrown, the bet ties.

The Come Bet

This bet is similar to the Pass bet but need not be made on the come out roll. (It is really available to allow players just joining the table to take part in the action immediately, instead of having to wait for the shooter to make or miss the point!)

The Don’t Come Bet

Again, this bet is similar to the Don’t Pass Bet, but need not be made on the come out roll.

Taking the Odds (Pass Line Odds)

The odds are simply an additional wager that the point will be rolled before a 7 and can be placed after the come out role if the point is made. Odds bets can be removed or reduced at any time. You can only place the Odds bet if you have a Pass bet on. The maximum amount of Free Odds bet is twice the amount of the Pass/Don’t Pass/Come/Don’t Come bets.

Win Bet (Buy a number)

This bet can be made on the following numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10. It is a bet that the relevant number will be thrown BEFORE a 7. To place this bet, place chips in the amount you wish to wager in the box below the relevant number at the top of the craps table.

Lose Bet (Lay Bet)

This bet can be made on the following numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10. It is a bet that a 7 will be thrown BEFORE the relevant number. To place this bet, place chips in the amount you wish to wager in the box above the relevant number at the top of the craps table.

Field Bet

This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays even money if a 3, 4, 9, 10 or 11 is thrown and 2 to 1 if a 2 or 12 is thrown.

Hardways Bet

This bet can be made on 4, 6, 8, 10. It is a bet that the relevant number will be thrown in its double form BEFORE a 7 AND before that number is thrown in any other combination.
