Craps Games

Craps

Craps is one of the classic casino games and is often used in movies to show the excitement of players within a casino. Although your bankroll can vary greatly in this game, it can be one of the better odds games in a casino. It is slowly growing in popularity in online casinos, but has yet to reach the same level of interest as seen in land based casinos. It is, however, one of the most entertaining casino games even online so worth investigating.

Basic Rules

Craps is a game whereby all players are positioned around a long rectangular table, with each player taking turns to roll two dice in their role as the shooter. It depends entirely on which bets you make as to whether you win or lose on any particular roll. Each player is asked by the dealer, in a clockwise direction, if they would like to be shooter. The shooter controls the dice for the entire game round. The first roll is called the Come Out roll, and can be very important in determining the future rolls required. If the shooter initially throws a combined dice value of 7 or 11 on the Come Out, then you win even money or 1:1 on your bet. If this first roll delivers a combined dice value of 2, 3, or 12 this is known as Craps and you lose your bet. Any other dice value becomes known as the point and this becomes the target number, and therefore the shooter either hits the point, or rolls a 7 and loses his round. Once the point is established only rolling a 7 leads to one losing their role as shooter.

We assume the shooter initially placed a bet on the Pass line for the Come Out roll, but this is not always the case. It is also possible to place a bet on Don’t Pass which is effectively betting against yourself, so it’s not a common bet. If a shooter had initially bet Don’t pass and secured a point, then their objective is to roll a 7 before rolling the point. As you can imagine, you probably won’t win over many friends with this strategy.

Other Craps Bets

Taking Odds: This is a ‘free odds’ bet which you can make behind your Pass line bet only after a point is established, you can take odds on your original bet. Since this a bet whereby the house has no edge, it is considered to be one of the best bets in the casino. This bet can only be made after a point is established and you have an active bet on the Pass line. This bet wins only if the shooter rolls the point before a 7, and the payout depends on the point because different numbers are more difficult to roll so you win more. Casinos vary on how much you can bet when you are taking odds, as some see this as a promotional incentive to attract customers, so it’s a good idea to investigate the maximum free odds you can bet behind the Pass line before you play.

Laying Odds: This bet is similar to Taking Odds, but applies only to bets that were made on the Don’t Pass line prior to the point being established. The idea is that win when a 7 is rolled before the point, and since 7 is the most common dice combination you need to bet or lay more chips than you win, depending on which point was rolled. For example, if the point is 4, you would need to lay 2:1 since it is twice as likely for a 7 to be rolled compared to 4.

Come Bet: A similar bet as Pass line, however, the difference is that you can only make this bet after a point is established. If the next roll is a 7 and 11 you win, and you lose on 2, 3, or 12 which is Craps. Any other number rolled becomes effectively an additional point, and the objective is to see this number rolled before a 7 to win the Come bet. In addition, you can take odds on a come bet just like the Pass line bet. Placing Come bets allows a player to be very aggressive whereby they essentially have multiple point numbers in play, which either win individually when the respective point is rolled, or all bets lose simultaneously if a 7 is rolled.

Don’t Come: This bet acts the same as Don’t Pass except can only be made after a point is established.
