Craps may be the most exciting, action packed game you ever play. There is no skill in shooting Craps, it is purely a game of chance.
How to Play
Players stand around the craps table. The game starts when the players place their bets and the stickman pushes the dice to a shooter. The shooter rolls the dice across the table so they hit the wall on the opposite end of the table. This first roll of the dice is called a "come out" roll. There are three things that can happen:
The shooter continues shooting the dice until the box point is rolled again. If a 7 is rolled before the point is rolled, the shooter loses. The game is over, a new shooter is picked (the next person around the table) and a new game begins.
Before the come out roll, all the players must place their first bet. You can place your bet either on the "pass line" or the "don't pass line." Pass line bets mean you are betting with the shooter. Don't pass line bets means you are betting with the house. The fun in craps (and the best way to win) is betting with the shooter. On the table, directly in front of you, place your bets on the pass line. The shooter will roll when all bets are placed. If on the first roll a 7 or 11 comes up, you win "even" money on the pass line bet you just made. If a 2,3, or 12 comes up, you lose that bet. Play continues in this fashion until a point number is rolled (4,5,6,8,9, or 10). Once the box point number is established, additional bets can be made.
