The Ins And Outs Of Craps

September 20, 2010

Craps is one of the most popular table games in casinos all over the world. The game of craps is unbelievably easy to play and it is just as easy to teach. A game of craps is essentially  played between the played and the casino  . This    is the one who rolls the dice and is referred to in the game as the shooter. The shooter will roll the dice and the others at the table will be betting on the results of how the dice will work.

Bets   will be used    . The Pass Line Bet is the kickoff one that is used. The first thing is  a come out roll is used at the start of the game. If a 7 or 11 is rolled on the come out roll then a Pass Line Bet will be a winning bet. Rolls of 2, 3 and 12 are losing rolls for this bet.

Should one of the other six possible numbers are rolled on the first roll in craps the number will be the point. All Pass Line bets will be kept  on the table. These bets will win if the shooter gets to the point before a 7 or 11 is rolled.

A Don’t Pass bet can also work in a casino craps game. At this stage a player  will roll a 2, 3 or 12 before that person reaches the point.

A Come Line bet or Don’t Come bet can be used after the point in a game has been dictated. This is where a person can create one’s own point. This type of bet  can work to where a person can opt to see that a shooter reaches a certain point before the real point comes about. One of these bets can be used until a person rolls the point or a different winning or losing number.

 The shooter can also  go with Odds bets. This is where people will bet on what point will be used in a game. People can do this with not only the bets on the specific number but also with the combination that the dice will roll in. A 2 to 1 payout will work for a 4 or 10 while a 3 to 2 payout  will work for 5 or 9. A 6 to 5 payout is used for a 6 or 8.

It will help to watch for the black and white chip at the top of a table. When the chip is black the game if Off and the come out roll has not happened. The game is On if the chip is white. This means new bets cannot be made.

 You will really enjoy the game, but it  is much easier if you know the rules of craps. The excitement and thrills of the game is a major reason as to why this is such a  enjoyable game  .
