How to Play Craps Online

Slot machines usually cause a huge individual commotion so if you’re looking for something with more of a group effort, Craps is definitely the game for you! Whenever you go into the casino the Craps area is never hard to find it’s always the tables with the loudest group of people because there are always winners at the table along with losers & it’s never just 1 winner & 1 loser it’s pretty much teams betting against each other to see who is the winner! Craps is a very fast-paced game with Blackjack you’ll see about 60 hands an hour, with craps you’ll see about 100 rolls an hour. Which for some, poses as intimidating when this game is friendly and is very welcoming. If you do see a Craps table without many faces and the crowd is quiet, you’ll want to wait until the dice are hot again!

The table. On both sides of the table, you will find that they are identical this is a measure taken so that more people can play the game at once, up to 16 players can share a game of craps at once. Bets are marked on the table, this is where you will place your chips to make your bet. In the middle of the table, you’ll find the boxman this is the person who collects the money from the dealers to make deposits into a drop box. Across from the dealer is the stickman this is the person who sets the tempo for the game he is the one who passes the dice to the shooter and encourages all bets to be in quickly. On each end of the table are the dealers and the players surrounding them.

There are different positions you will want to learn when playing craps, the person who is rolling the dice is called a shooter. At the beginning of each round players will place bets, this is when the pass and don’t pass lines are bet on. The shooter will then roll the dice which is called the “come out” if the dice is rolled a 2,3,7,11, or 12 ~ one of these wagers will win and that round is complete! If the dice is rolled a 4 till 10 this is called a “place” roll from there, the “on” button is turned on indicating the “point” has been rolled already.

Pass Line Bet
This is when you would place your bet in the pass line area on the table basically betting that the shooter will win. When the dice is rolled and comes out a 7 or 11 this means the bet was won!
when the roll comes out a 2, 3 or 12 then the pass line bet is a loss.
any number between 4-10 becomes the point. if the point is rolled again before a 7 is rolled then pass line bet wins!

Don’t Pass Line Bet
This is almost similar to the Pass Line Bet except you are betting that the shooter will lose.
7 or 11 on the come out roll = a loss
2 or on the come out roll = a win
if a 12 is rolled this equals a push and no one wins.
4,5,6,8,9 or 10’s are set as the point.
once the point is established if 7’s are rolled before the point… then they don’t pass line wins.

So basically this is how the game goes. Come out rolls that result in a 7 or 11 give the pass line win 1:1, after this the round is over & a new shooter is up. Come out roll and you get craps which are 2, 3 or 12 then pass line bets lose and a new shooter is up.

If any other score is rolled then the point is marked based on that score which is referred to as the “point” for the remainder of the game. If you feel a little bit confused, online gameplay is a great learning tool, most of the time there are text boxes that come along with the game to show you what you’re supposed to do next. When approaching a craps table in a casino and all is quiet you might want to just spectate for a moment to learn what’s going on better because at this point, the dice are cold & who wants to play with cold dice? Wait till they’re hot and get in there!
