Beginning Craps for Beginners

                               

 Here is a basic explanation on how craps is played.


The player throwing the dice is known as the "shooter," and all bets must be on the table before the shooter throws the dice.
Wager types are:


Pass Line
Pass Line Bet pays 1 to 1. On the "come out" roll (the first roll), you win on a natural 7 or 11, and will lose if "craps" (2, 3 or 12) is rolled. Any other number rolled is your "point," and you must throw your point again before a 7 to win your pass line bet.  One of the best bets in the Casino, I give this bet a 5 Star!


Don't Pass Line

Complete opposite of the Pass Line. You lose on a natural 7 or 11 on the first roll. You win on 2 or 3, and 12 is a tie. If the shooter makes his point after the first roll, you lose. You win after the first roll if the shooter rolls a 7 before making his point.  Again, one of the best bets in the Casino, I give this bet a 5 Star!
 

Come Bets
The come bet is basically a new pass line bet after a point has been established. This can be made any time after a point is established. You win on a 7 or 11 and lose on craps (2, 3 or 12). Any other number that is rolled is a "come point," and must be thrown again before a 7 is thrown.
 

Don't Come Bets
The donít come bet is basically a new donít pass line bet after a point has been established. This can be made any time after a point is established. You win if you roll a 2 or 3, lose if you roll a 7 or 11. If a 12 is rolled, it's a push (tie). Any other number rolled is the "come point," and a 7 must be thrown again before that point is thrown.

Place Bets
In addition to the pass line and odds bets, you can now also place bets on the "numbers." At the top of the craps table are the numbers 4,5,6,8,9, and 10. You can bet (place) these individual numbers (any or all of them). You win if the numbers you place come out before a 7 is rolled. You win different odds depending on the numbers you bet. The 4 and 10 pay 9:5. The 5 and 9 pay 7:5. The 6 and 8 pay 7:6. These odds are based on the probability of those numbers being rolled.
 

Place 4 or 10   Pays 9 to 5
Place 5 or  9    Pays 7 to 5
Place 6 or  8    Pays 7 to 6


Bet Number To Win or (Buying the Bet)
Buy 4 or 10   Pays 2 to 1
Buy 5 or 9     Pays 3 to 2
Buy 6 or 8     Pays 6 to 5
 

Bet Number To Lose or (Laying the Bet)
Lay 4 or 10   Pays 1 to 2
Lay 5 or 9     Pays 2 to 3
Lay 6 or 8     Pays 5 to 6


Field Bets
This is a one-roll bet: you're betting on the next roll, and you're betting that one of seven numbers comes up. You get 1 to 1 when a 3, 4, 9, 10 or 11 rolls, and 2 to 1 when a 2 or 12 rolls. If a 5, 6, 7 or 8 is rolled, you lose. 


HARD WAY BETS
You win if the number comes up in pairs on the table; lose if the number comes up any other way, or if a 7 is thrown. For example, if you have $1 on the hard 4, the dice must roll two two's to win. If the dice roll is 1 and 3, the bet loses. HARD WAY bets will remain on the table in play until the number rolls, or if a seven rolls. A Hardway 4 or 10 pays 7 to 1. A Hardway 6 or 8 pays 9 to 1. 
 

Any Craps
A one-roll bet paying 7 to 1 if any crap (2, 3 or 12) is rolled. If any other number is rolled, you lose.
 

Craps 3
A one-roll bet. Pays 15 to 1, but only on 3, loses on any other number rolled.
 

Craps 2
A one-roll bet. Pays 30 to 1, but only on 2, loses on any other number rolled.
 

Craps 12
A one-roll bet. Pays 30 to 1, but only on 12, loses on any other number rolled.
 

Seven (7)
Your bet is good for one roll; it pays 4 to 1 odds if a 7 is rolled. If any other number comes up, you lose. Stay away from this bet.  See my Craps Vig Chart.
 

Eleven or Yo (11)
Your bet is good for one roll; it pays 15 to 1 if an 11 is rolled. If any other number comes up, you lose.
 

Horn Bet
A one-roll combination bet of Craps 2, 3, 12 or 11. Should any of these numbers roll, you win. Bets are placed, and the payoffs are made as if each number 2, 3, 12 or 11 were four separate bets. Payoffs are made according to each individual's total minus the 3 chips which were wagered on the other three numbers which lost. This bet is lost should any numbers other than the 2, 3, 12 or 11 be rolled.
 

Horn High Bet
A one-roll wager placed in units of five, with four units wagered as a Horn Bet and an additional unit wagered on either 2, 3, 12 or 11. This bet is a loser should any number other than 2, 3, 12 or 11 be rolled.
