is one of the most exciting games you can find in an online casino but
it can be slightly intimidating for many people. This is down to the
fact that there are so many different bets which can be made, it can be
very difficult for players who do not know about the game. However,
there is no reason to believe that you can never pick up the rules and
nuances of craps because it isn’t too difficult.
To begin with, every player around the craps table will have a chance to
roll the dice. If you don’t want to roll the dice that is fine but
there is an opportunity to do so if you wish. The dice will be passed
around the table in a clockwork fashion and when the dice comes to you,
you need to take the dice and roll them to the other end of the craps
The initial roll of the dice is referred to as the “come-out” roll and
if you roll an 11 or a 7, this is referred to as a natural and you win.
You will also be allowed to roll the dice again. If the dice is rolled
and a 2 a 3 or a 12 is rolled, this is referred to as craps and you will
lose. However, you will get the chance to roll the dice again.
The other numbers that can be rolled include 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10. If
any of these numbers come up, this number becomes to point and the aim
of the game is to roll the point before the number 7 is rolled. If a 7
happens to roll before the point, the game is lost and the next shooter
takes control of the dice.
However, if the point is rolled before a 7 comes up, a pass is made and
this means that the bet is won. That is the basic overview of the game
of craps and if you can get your heads around these rules, you will be
able to go far with craps.
When it comes to playing craps, the two main types of bets a player can
place are pass or don’t pass bets. If you choose to place a bet on the
pass line, you are essentially betting on the fact that the shooter will
These bets are paid out at a rate of 1 to 1, and the house edge for a
pass line bet is usually around 1.4%. The "don’t pass line" bet is
basically a bet against the shooter, in which you are betting that the
shooter will lose.
This bet is actually slightly more in favor of the player but there can
be a bad feeling about placing a bet against the shooter so most people
will commonly bet in favor of the pass line. With this information, you
should find it easy to get involved around the craps table and have some
fun with the game.
