Craps Rules and Tips:

Bank Craps or Casino Craps is one of the most stimulating dice game played in all the casinos. It is a usual thing to hear people shouting and screaming at the Craps table. Craps is played on a special layout table with two dices.

The casinos supervise and scrutinize these dices on a regular basis for any kind of damage. The casinos replace old or damaged dices with new after every eight hours.

While throwing the dices, you need to hold them in one hand and throw on the table. A Craps table can hold up to 20 players at a time. In addition, every player gets one round for throwing or shooting a dice. Suppose you do not wish to throw the dices, then you may lay a bet on the player, who is throwing the dices. The casino team comprises of two traders, box man, and a stickman.

Craps table offers you to lay several kinds of bets such as first rolls, wherein players lay a common bet known as the Come Out Roll. This roll is made when the former shooter is unable to secure a fetching roll.

After this, a new game begins with a fresh shooter. In addition, if the fresh shooter is able to make points, he/she will again start the fresh Come Out rolls. Thus, in this way, Craps goes on.

Next, if the shooter is unable to make a point, the player after that gets the dice for a fresh Come Out roll. Thus, the game is carried on in a similar and clockwise manner amongst players seated at the Craps table.

Remember that the players roll the dices across the table layout, which is split in three arenas. Every side arena is the reflection of other side thereby containing Pass Line Bets, Don’t Pass Line Bets, Don’t Come Bets and Come Bets, and Field Bets and Place Bets. Thus, the area in the middle is common to both side arenas, thus containing Proposition bets.

Some of the bets that you can play at Craps table are as follows:

  • Pass Line Bet: In this bet, you will win if the first roll comes to 11 or 7, which means it needs to be natural. You lose the bet, if you roll 2, 3, or 12. You also lose the bet, if you roll 7 before a point.
  • Odds on Pass Line Bet: After rolling a point, you can place this bet by dealing with odds. Payoffs vary for every point. Point of 4 or 10 pays you 2:1, point of 5 or 9 pays you 3:2, and point of 6 or 8 pays you 6:5. You may win the game, only if the point is rolled once again before 7.
  • Don’t Pass Line Bet: Here, the case is opposite. You win the bet, if you roll out 2 or 3 and lose on rolling 7 or 11 that is natural. If you roll 12, it is declared as push or tie with the respective casino. Suppose you roll to a point that is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, then to win, you need to get a 7 before the same point repeats.
  • Come Bet: This bet has rules similar to Pass Line Bet. The only difference is that you can place this bet once the point is determined on Pass Line Bet. You will win if you roll 7 or 11, and lose if you roll on 2, 3, and 12.
  • Odds on Come Bet: This is similar to Odds on Pass Line Bets. The only exception is that you take the odds on Come Bet instead of Pass Line Bet.
  • Don’t Come Bet: Here the case is reversed. After establishing the Come Bet, you will win, if you roll 2 or 3 and lose if you roll 7 or 11. If you roll on to 12, it is a tie.
  • Place Bet: You may bet once the points are determined. In fact, you can lay a stake, if the dice rolls to 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10. Your odds of winning here are higher if the bet you laid on a figure rolls before 7.
  • Payoffs vary depending mainly on the figure you have placed a bet. Point 4 or 10 pays you 9:5, point 5 or 9 pays you 7:5, and point 6 or 8 pays you 7:6. The best part of Place Bet is that you can withdraw this bet at anytime.
  • Field Bet: This bet is just for single dice rolling, as you win on rolling 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, and 12. If you roll 5, 6, 7, 8, you will lose the bet. The payoff offered by this bet is 2:1. Thus, 12 will pay you 3:1.
  • Big Six, Big Eight Bet: You will win this bet, if you roll 6 or 8 before rolling to 7. These bets pay you 1:1, as they are even.
