For many people, Craps is their favorite casino game. It is fast, exciting and wild. It appears to be complicated at first but in actuality is very simple. 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 it hits 7.
To place a chip on the table, move the mouse pointer to that part of the table where you want to put the chip and press the left mouse button. This will put a chip on the table at your chosen position.
There are several types of bets which can be placed on the craps table:
|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.
This is an additional bet made on a Pass, Don’t Pass, Come or Don’t Come bet that has already been placed. Odds bets can only be made once the point has been established. The advantage of an odds bet is that it is paid out at the correct odds.
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.
This bet can be made on the following numbers: 4,5,6,8,9,10. It is a bet that a seven will be thrown BEFORE the relevant number.
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 2:1 if a 2 or 12 is thrown.
This bet can be made on 4,6,8 or 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.
It pays 5 for 1 (4 to 1) if a 7 is made in the next throw.
It pays 8 for 1 (4 to 1) if a 2, 3 or 12 is made in the next throw.
It pays 30 to 1 if a 2 is made in the next throw.
It pays 30 to 1 if a 12 is made in the next throw.
It pays 15 to 1 if a 3 is made in the next throw.
It pays 15 to 1 if an 11 is made in the next throw.
This is a single roll bet on any craps (2, 3 or 12) and 11. Odds are paid out accordingly.
