Craps is a dice game that can be played by up to 20 people. They all bet on the result of one or more consecutive rolls of the dice. Players can bet against the casino or against each other. The rules of this game are not easy because there are many different types of bets and you need to know them all well.
The goal in craps is to bet on a number that will or will not come out the next time the dice is rolled.
The main game of craps is the Pass Line or Don’t Pass Line bet. If you bet on the Pass Line, then you must roll 7 or 11 to win. And if you bet on Don’t Pass Line, you have to roll 2 or 3. In craps, the first roll in the game is called Come Out Roll.
If the bet is successful and you win, then the payout ratio is 1:1.
If you do not roll 7, 11, 2, 3 or 12, then the amount of your bet will be on the value of the roll, which is called "establishing a point".
Once a point has been established, then you must roll the "point" again before throwing 7. If this happens - if 7 is thrown - then you lose your bet.
Once a point is established, players cannot remove their bet from the table. You will need to keep rolling the dice before the Pass / Don’t Pass bets are won or lost.
If there are any bets left on the table, the roll of the dice will continue and a "point" will be established. There must be a bet on the craps table, otherwise the player will not be allowed to roll the dice. It is allowed to place bets between dice rolls.
You can place Pass Line and Don’t Pass Line bets when the white puck is NOT on the craps table.
In a game of craps, there are 36 different possible combinations of rolling the dice, with the number 7 most likely to fall, followed by the numbers 6 and 8, and third most likely 5 and 9, followed by 4 and 10, the penultimate are 2 and 11, and the numbers 2 and 12 are the least likely.
The rules of the game may not seem very easy, but in general they are not too complicated and with some research you will quickly learn how to play craps.
