How do you Play Craps Right?

The craps tables always stand out no matter what casino you visit. There are usually a few people around the tables. One person throws the dice while the rest make bets. It’s a lively game, and one worth betting on if you know how to do it correctly.

On the contrary, dice can be intimidating to beginners. It can also be risky because every wrong move will often lead to a loss. What’s more, the game is full of jargon words that can be confusing. Luckily, that’s why we are here.

Craps: The Basics

Craps is a casino game that involves throwing dice and making bets on their outcome. Players sometimes wager against one another or play against the house. They might also use these terms:

·         Ace deuce—a roll of 3

·         Big Red—a bet on the number 7

·         Box cars/high—a bet on 12

·         Box numbers—4,5,6,8,9 and 10

·         Hot dice—when a player bets for long without hitting 7

·         Inside numbers—5,6,8 and 9

·         Little Joe—point 4

·         Nina—betting on 9

There are a lot more terms you might need to learn as a craps player. But the most important thing is to learn the game’s rules. In a multiplayer setting, the person who rolls dice is referred to as the shooter.

The shooter also needs to place a bet on the outcome of the dice he rolls. Usually, he has to wager on the “pass” or “don’t pass” line bets. Sometimes these wagers are also known as “right” and “wrong” bets.

Two Phases

The standard craps game round has two stages: come-out and point phase. The game starts with the shooter rolling two dice at once. The result is what’s known as the come-out phase. Usually:

·         A pass bet is defined by a come out of 7 or 11

·         A don't pass wager win in a roll-out of 2 or 3

·         A roll of a 12 is considered a tie (push)

·         A point phase happens when the shooter rolls numbers 4,5,6,8,9 or 10

When a shooter rolls a point number, he must roll again until he rolls the same number or a 7, in which case he loses.

Playing Craps Online

Although it can look intimidating, playing craps online is much simpler than in a Las Vegas casino. For starters, computers help you place bets conveniently. You can bet on pass or don’t pass, come or don’t come at the click of a button.

Of course, you want to bet carefully to avoid bad wagers and to increase the odds of winning. Read this online Craps guide to find out the right way to wager on the game. Also, learn the best bets and the best casinos to wager on Craps.

In the meantime, here's an illustration of some of the most common Craps bets and their house edge.

·         Pass—1.41% House Edge

When people say they get trouble betting on Craps, this is the wager they usually have a problem with. In reality, betting on the pass line means you hope the shooter rolls out a 7 or an 11.

If the shooter rolls a 2, or a 3, you lose. In some casinos, a 12 is also treated as a loss and not a tie. On the other hand, a 4, 5,6,8,9, or a 10 is treated as a point number.

 When that happens, the shooter throws dice, hoping to roll the same number again. If the shooter rolls a 7, unfortunately, he loses. 

·         Come bet—1.41% House Edge

A come bet is like a pass line wager, except you make it after the shooter throws the first round of dice and rolls a point number.

For example, assuming the shooter rolls out a 9. You can then wager a ‘come bet’ hoping he rolls a 7 or 11 next. If he does, you win. If he rolls, a 2, 3 or a 12, you lose.

However, if he rolls a point number, that number now becomes your point number.

·         Don’t Pass—1.36%

A don’t pass bet is the opposite of a pass bet. The wager wins if the shooter rolls a 2 or a 3. In many cases, a 12 is a push in which case you can request for your money back or bet again.

Similar to a pass, if the shooter rolls a point number, it becomes the point. However, in this case, you hope he rolls a 7 so that you win. If the shooter rolls the same number, don't pass bets lose.

·         Place Bets—1.52% to 6.67%

Instead of betting on a pass or don’t pass wager, you could pick a specific point number. Let’s say 8. You can bet money than the shooter will roll out this number before he produces a 7. If that happens, you’ll win.

However, if the shooter produces a 7 before he rolls out your 8, you lose. If he rolls out any other number, nothing happens. The decision is only made if the shooter rolls a 7 or your number.

Making place bets on a 6 or an 8 has the house edge of 1.52%. A 5 or a 9 has a house advantage of 4% while a 4 or a 10 has an edge of 6.67%. So, pick your number wisely.

One-Roll/Props Bets

If you have a lucky number that always comes out when you bet, try betting on it in craps. You can also wager on a group of numbers. Precisely;

·         Bet on a 2 if it’s your favorite number. You get paid if the shooter rolls out a 2. Any other number is a loss.

·         Bet on 7 and 11. If either number appears, you win. Any other number is a loss.

·         Wager on 2,3,11 and 12. If any of these numbers rolls out, you win.

The takeaway

Craps rules can be confusing. But they are easy to understand with some bit of learning. Again, bets vary widely in their house edge and payout ratios. So, research to learn a casino’s craps rules before you bet.
