In Craps, players bet on the outcome of the roll of two dice. The shooter is the one that throws the dice. The game progresses in rounds. The first throw of a new game is called the 'come out roll'. Bets need to be placed before the dice are thrown. If a new round of craps starts, the shooter chooses two dice to throw. With the first throw you determine a score (also called the point), that you try to achieve again, or NOT try to get again, on the next roll.
If the total score of the two dice at the come out roll equals 7, 11, 2, 3 or 12, the round ends and the shooter will have to do another come out roll. A score of 2, 3 or 12 is called Craps, while 7 or 11 is called a natural. If the result of the come out roll is one of the remaining numbers, namely 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, this number is the point. When the point has been determined, the shooter will have to throw the dice, until he either throws 7, or the point again. If the shooter throws the point again, the round comes to an end and a new round will start, where the same player will throw the come out roll again. If the shooter throws a 7, the round also ends. This is called a seven out.
In total, there are more than 100 different craps bets and combinations. The most simple one is the pass line bet. With 1,42% chance to win for the house, this is one of the best bets a casino can offer you. Below we will discuss some of the most popular craps bets.
Kinds of bets
A player wins this bet if the result of the come out roll is a natural. If the result is craps, the bet is lost. If the player sets a point (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10) at the come out roll, and throws the point again, the player wins the bet. If the point is determined and a 7 is thrown before the point is thrown, the player loses his bet.
Don't Pass Line
The don't pass line is the opposite of the pass line bet. The bet is lost if the come out roll is a natural and is won when craps is thrown. If the shooter throws a point and throws the same point again, the bet is lost. If the shooter throws a 7 before the point is thrown again, the bet is won.
The come bet is basically the same as the pass line bet. The only difference is that the rules only apply after the come out roll. The player wins if the result of the throw is a natural. He loses when the outcome is craps. If the shooter sets a point (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10) and throws this score again, the bet is won. If a point is set and a 7 is thrown before the point is thrown again, the bet is lost.
Don't Come Bets
The don't come bet is the opposite of the come bet. The player bets that craps will be thrown at the next throw, instead of a natural. Or that, if a point is thrown, this point will not be thrown again before a 7 is thrown.
