Casino Craps (or Bank Craps) is an ancient dice game that has been popular for centuries and is still one of the most popular gambling games in the world. All beginners behold a craps table as something mystifying and intimidating, Crap rules seem quite difficult to understand. Nevertheless, Craps is a perfect game of chance and a top-quality entertainment when you feel like gambling.

Craps: the Game Basics

Craps is traditionally played at a special table. Here you will find two dice that have a total of 36 different possible combinations. There are only eleven numbers that can be rolled with those combinations (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12). The every round of the game starts with placing the initial bets. At this stage you should bet where the pass and don't pass lines are (see below) 0 that is the most important thing in craps rules.

Pass Line Bet

A "Pass Line Bet" is the most vital bet in Craps. You will see almost every player at the table making it. Pass Line Bet is very simple - you place your chips on the table on the Pass Line bar. Remember that this pass line bet must be made before the shooter has established his/her point! Pass Line is an even-money bet. It wins if the dice land on 7 or 11 on the Come Out Roll. Pass line bet looses if the dice land on 2, 3 or 12.

Don’t Pass Line Bet

Don’t pass Line Bet should be made before the shooter's first roll, too. You win if the dice roll shows 2 or 3 and you lose if the dice roll shows 7 or 11; if the shooter rolls a 12 your bet is a tie. To make this bet online place your chips in the box marked "Don't Pass" on the craps table.

Other Types of Craps Bets

There are many other craps bets other than Pass Line and Don’t Pass Line. They are called proposition bets and are usually found in the center of a craps table. These bets have a higher house advantage, but if you are lucky enough to win, it is your perfect to make money. There are various proposition bets and you can see various offers depending on the online casino you choose.

Come and Don’t Come Bets

Come and Don’t Come bets are placed after the initial roll of the dice after the Pass Line was determined. Come bets win if 7 or 11 are rolled, the bet loses if 2 or 3 are rolled. Attention: if a point number is rolled, your bet is moved onto that number, if the point is rolled before a 7your bet wins. Don’t Come Bets are the opposite. If you have 2 or 3, you win; if you have 7 or 11 you lose. If a point is rolled then Don’t Come bets win on condition that a 7 is being rolled before the point.

Place Bets

Place bets are made after the point of the round is determined. Place Win Bet is a bet where gamblers select a specific number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10) that will hit before a 7. Place Lose Bet is a bet where gamblers select a specific number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10) that will hit after a 7. The payoffs for the Place Bets differ greatly. Depending on the number you bet on, you will be paid 9:5 (if you select 4 or 10); 7:5 (if you select 5 or 9), or 7:6 (if you select 6 or 8).

These bets are good for a single dice roll. You can bet on 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 and 12 and if any number is thrown, then you win. If you see 5, 6, 7 and 8 you lose your bet. Field Bets have the following payouts: 2 pays double (2:1) and 12 pays 3:1. Other winning field bets are paid even (1:1).
