Craps Rules

Betting and Playing

Although there are enough different betting options at the craps table to send a first-time player's head spinning, it is easily possible to play and win using the safest and simplest bets.Here are descriptions of the basic betting options in Craps:Pass BetsThese are the simplest and most common bets. You make a Pass Bet by placing your wager on the Pass Line before the Come Out roll.

Pass Bets are typically 'Right Bets' - that is, you are betting that the shooter will win, not lose - and assuming that the round continues past the Come Out roll, Pass Bets refer to the chance that the Point will be rolled again before a 7. Winning Pass Bets pay out at 1:1 odds. You Win If: You roll a 7 or 11 on the Come Out roll, or roll the Point on subsequent throws.You Lose if: You roll Craps (2,3, or 12) on the Come Out roll, or if you roll 7 on subsequent throws. Don't Pass BetsIn essence, the opposite of a Pass Bet. These are wagers that are put on the Don't Pass Line, and the bettor is betting against the shooter - if the round gets past the Come Out roll, a Don't Pass Bet requires the shooter to roll a 7 before rolling the Point. Although betting against the shooter is referred to as a 'Wrong' Bet, the odds of winning this kind of wager are actually quite high.You Win if: The shooter rolls Craps (2, 3 or 12) on the Come Out roll, or a 7 on subsequent rolls.You Lose if: The shooter rolls a 7 or 11 on the Come Out roll, or rolls the Point on subsequent throws.Come/Don't Come BetsVery similar to Pass and Don't Pass Bets, but placed while a round is in progress.

These options are available to accommodate bettors joining the game late. The same winning and losing possibilities apply - for example, a Come Bet wins if the next roll is 7 or 11, while it loses if Craps is rolled. If the shooter rolls a different number, this roll becomes the Come Point..Odds BetsOdds Bets back up the Pass/Come bets that are already in play. Casinos usually limit Odds wagers to two or three times the original bet. Payoffs for Odds Bets are, as the name implies, calculated from the true probability of the dice roll. There is no additional house advantage with Odds Bets, and unresolved bets of this nature can be removed from the table in the middle of the game.Payouts for Pass Odds and Come Odds are as follows: 2:1 on a roll of 4 or 10, 3:2 on a 5 or a 9, and 6:5 on rolls of 6 or 8.Payouts for Don't Pass Odds and Don't Come Odds are as follows: 1:2 on a roll of 4 or 10, 2:3 on a 5 or 9, and 5:6 on 6's and 8's.Place Number BetsPlace Bets involve betting that a particular number will be rolled before a 7, or vice versa. These bets have names like Place, Buy, Lay, Lose, Big 6 and Big 8, Hard 4, Hard 6, Hard 8 and Hard 10. These bets give the house a decidedly higher advantage, and even experienced gamblers usually avoid this kind of wager. Proposition Bets Proposition Bets occur when you bet that a specific number will appear on the next roll, and include Any Craps, Field, Hop and Horn bets. With this kind of wager, the odds against the player are extremely high, and as with Place Number bets, smart players usually avoid them.
