How to Play Craps

Craps looks confusing at first but the truth is its a breeze to learn and after just a few minutes playing you’ll be comfortable and cheering along with the rest the table third.

There are tonnes of bets you can make but the most important is the pass line and it’s the best way to get started when you’re a beginner. When you bet the pass line you’re hoping the shooter will roll a 7 or 11 on the first floor which is called the come out roll you can tell when the shooter is coming out because the puck on the table will say off if the shooter rolls a seven or 11 on the come out roll all pass line bets win even money if they role a 2, 3 or 12 it’s called craps and all pass line bets lose if the shooter rolls a 4, 5, 6, 8,9 or 10 that number becomes the point and the button is turned to on and put on that number.

All the pass line bets stand and the shooter has to roll the dice again. Now in order to win the shooter has to roll the point number before they roll a seven. If the point number hits all past line bets win and pay even money but if a seven hits first all pass line bet lose. Betting don’t pass is the opposite at the pass line and its basically like betting on the house when a point numbers is thrown there’s a special wager you can make called the odds back it’s basically a side bet on the shooter rolling the point before they role of seven and it’s a great bet because there’s 0 house edge. to take the odds just place your chips right behind your past lightpath on the outside of the layout If the point is rolled before a seven you win your pass line bet and get paid out on the odds bet the come bet is basically the same bet as the pass line except you have to make it after the come out roll so if the shooter is already set the point you can bet on the come or don’t come and the bet works the same way as the past and don’t pass bets.

To make a come bet just throw your chips right on to the Come bar if the next role is a seven or 11 you win the come bet.If its a 2,3 or 12 you lose. If it’s any other number the dealer will move your bet up to the corresponding number on the felt. This is basically the new point number just for your come bet. So you’re hoping it’ll hit before the shooter rolls a 7.

If you bet on craps the don’t come bar you’re betting on the completely opposite outcome a place bet is another quick bet you can make anytime after the come out roll and it’s a bet on a number being rolled before a seven. To make a place bet just throw your chips towards the dealer and asked them to place the number of your choice. The dealer will put your chips below your number and if its rolled before a seven you win.

The odds and payouts are complicated but just remember the only numbers you should ever place are 6 and 8 never bet the big 6 and 8 because it’s the same bet as placing the six or eight but with the worst payout proposition bets are one roll wagers you can make at anytime but if you want to give yourself the best chance at winning you should avoid them at all costs proposition bets include bets like the horn where you want a 2,3, 11 or 12 on the next role or the field where you’re hoping for a 2,3,4, 9, 10, 11 or 12. If you bet the hard ways your number has to hit the exact way as shown on the felt. For example Two fours to make an 8.Unlike Other wagers the proposition bets only count for one role if you miss your number you lose the bet.
