Baccarat

Craps is one of the most dice games. It is common to hear yelling and shouting at a craps table. It is played on a purpose-built table and two dice are used. The dice are made after very strict standards and are routinely inspected for any damage. As a matter of course, the dice are replaced with new ones after about eight hours of use, and casinos have implemented rules in the way a player handles them.

The player must handle the dice with one hand only when throwing and the dice must hit the walls on the opposite end of the table. In the event that one or both dice are thrown off the table, they must be inspected (usually by the stickman) before putting them back into play.

How to Play Craps

One player at a time takes turns acting as the "shooter" at the table. This person throws the dice and all the people at the table place bets on the outcome. Bets are made by placing casino chips in the corresponding areas on the craps layout.

The first time a shooter throws the dice, it's called the "come out roll." The game is then played according to the following outcomes:

  1. If the come out roll is a 2, 3 or 12, it's called "craps" and the round ends. Anyone with a pass line bet automatically loses.
  2. If the come out roll is a 7 or 11, it's called a "natural" and anyone with a pass line bet automatically wins.
  3. All other numbers (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10) establish a point.

Once a point is established, the same shooter continues throwing until that same point is rolled again or a 7 is rolled. If the point is rolled again before a 7 is rolled, all pass line bets win. If a 7 is rolled first, it's called a "seven-out" and the pass line bets lose. The same shooter continues throwing until he sevens-out.

Bets in Craps:

Pass Line Bet:You win if the first roll is a natural (7, 11) and lose if it is craps (2, 3, 12). If a point is rolled (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10) it must be repeated before a 7 is thrown in order to win. If 7 is rolled before the point you lose.

Odds on Pass Line Bet: After a point is rolled you can make this additional bet by taking odds. There are different payoffs for each point. A point of 4 or 10 will pay you 2:1; 5 or 9 pays 3:2; 6 or 8 pays 6:5. You only win if the point is rolled again before a 7.

Come Bet: It has the same rules as the Pass Line bet. The difference consists in the fact you can make this bet only after the point on the pass line has been determined. After you place your bet the first dice roll will set the come point. You win if it is a natural (7, 11) and lose if it is craps (2, 3, 12).

Other rolls will make you a winner if the come point is repeated before a 7 is rolled. If a 7 is rolled first you lose.

Odds on Come Bet: Exactly the same thing as the Odds on Pass Line bet except you take odds on the Come bet not the Pass Line bet.

Don't Pass Line Bet: This is the reversed Pass Line bet. If the first roll of a dice is a natural (7, 11) you lose and if it is a 2 or a 3 you win. A dice roll of 12 means you have a tie or push with the casino. If the roll is a point (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10) a 7 must come out before that point is repeated to make you a winner. If the point is rolled again before the 7 you lose.

Don't Come Bet: The reversed Come Bet. After the come point has been established you win if it is a 2 or 3 and lose for 7 or 11. 12 is a tie and other dice rolls will make you win only if a 7 appears before them on the following throws.

Place Bets: This bet works only after the point has been determined. You can bet on a dice roll of 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10. You win if the number you placed your bet on is rolled before a 7. Otherwise you lose. The Place Bets payoffs are different depending on the number you bet on. 4 or 10 will pay 9:5; 5 or 9 pays 7:5, and 6 or 8 pays 7:6. You can cancel this bet anytime you want to.

Field Bets: These bets are for one dice roll only. If a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 12 is rolled you win. A 5, 6, 7 and 8 make you lose. Field Bets have the following different payoffs: 2 pays double (2:1) while 12 pay 3:1. Other winning dice rolls pays even (1:1).

Big Six, Big Eight Bets Placed at any roll of dice these bets win if a 6 or 8 come out before a 7 is rolled. Big Six and Big Eight are even bets and are paid at 1:1.

Proposition Bets These bets can be made at any time and, except for the hardways, they are all one roll bets:

Any Craps: Wins if a 2, 3 or 12 is thrown. Payoff 8:1

Any Seven: Wins if a 7 is rolled. Payoff 5:1

Eleven: Wins if a 11 is thrown. Payoff 16:1

Ace Deuce: Wins if a 3 is rolled. Payoff 16:1

Aces or Boxcars: Wins if a 2 or 12 is thrown. Payoff 30:1

Horn Bet: it acts as the bets on 2, 3, 11 and 12 all at once. Wins if one of these numbers is rolled. Payoff is determined according to the number rolled. The other three bets are lost.

Hardways: The bet on a hardway number wins if it's thrown hard (sum of pairs: 1-1, 3-3, 4-4...) before it's rolled easy and a 7 is thrown. Payoffs: Hard 4 and 10, 8:1; Hard 6 and 8, 10:1
