How to Play Craps

    A Craps game in full swing is a very fast and exciting game to play and to watch!

    To the Player it can be very confusing trying to understand the strange calls from the stick Dealer, and the multitude of betting options on the table. Just know that the dealers and supervisors are always happy to explain the game to new players.

     

    How to p;lay Craps

    COME OUT ROLL

    This is either the first roll of the dice with a new shooter, or the first roll of the dice after the shooter has made a point. A point is established on the Come Out Roll if the shooter rolls 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10. This point must then be rolled again before a 7. Any Player, including the shooter, may either bet on the Pass Line or the Don't Pass Line prior to the Come Out Roll.

     

    Type of bets:

    PASS LINE

    An even money wager, a Pass Line bet is placed immediately prior to the Come Out Roll. You win if a 7 or 11 is rolled and lose if a 2, 3 or 12 is rolled. If any other number is rolled it is marked as the 'point'. This point must be repeated before a 7 to win. Pass Line bets cannot be reduced or removed after the point is established.

    DON'T PASS LINE

    An even money wager, a Don't Pass Line bet must be placed immediately prior to the Come Out Roll. You win if a 2 or 3 is rolled and there is a 'push' if a 12 is rolled. If a 7 or 11 is rolled you lose. If any other number is rolled it becomes the point.

    When you are betting on the Don't Pass Line you are betting that the shooter will not repeat their point before a 7 is rolled. A Don't Pass Line bet can be removed or decreased after a point is established, however, it may not be replaced or increased.

    COME BET

    A Come Bet can be made after the point is established. The Come Bets work exactly like the Pass Line.

    DON'T COME BET

    A Don't Come bet can be placed after the point is established. The Don’t Come Bets work exactly like the Don’t Pass Line.

    ODDS BET

    A Player can make an Odds bet when they have a bet on either the Pass Line, Don't Pass Line, Come or Don't Come.

    BUY BETS

    The rules that apply to Place bets also apply to Buy bets: the only difference being that a 5% commission is charged entitling the Player to receive the true odds on any particular number as listed on the Payout chart.

    LAY BETS

    You may Lay a bet against a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10 at any time. The bet loses if the number rolls before a 7. A 5% commission is charged based on what the bet will win. Lay bets always have action. Refer to the Payout Chart for the odds and the payoffs.

    FIELD BET

    The Field is a one roll bet. A Field bet can be made on every roll of the dice. If 3, 4, 9, 10 or 11 is rolled, you win even money for your bet. If a 2 or 12 is rolled you win double your bet. A Field bet loses if a 5, 6, 7, or 8 is rolled.
