How to play Craps

Craps is the most exciting and fast-paced, game in the casino. The game is played by betting on the outcome of the roll of the dice. Each person at the table gets the chance to roll the two dice or opt to pass to the next player. 

The first roll is called the come-out roll. It determines the point (target number) to roll again before rolling a 7. If the come-out roll is a 7 or 11, anyone with a pass line wager will win even money (1 to 1). If the come-out roll is a 2, 3 or 12, he or she will lose his or her wager, and the next shooter gets a turn.

If the come-out roll is any other number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10), that number is referred to as the point. After the point is established, the shooter will continue to roll until the point number is made or a 7 is rolled. 

Essentially, everyone at the table is betting on the shooter. There are many bets you can make at the craps table—some better than others—but one of the best bets in the casino is betting the pass line, where you will find a slim house advantage of only 1.4%. If you are new to craps, try to get a spot next to the stickman (in the center of the table) so he can help you with any questions you have.
