How the Craps Shooter bets and wins

If you are the Craps Shooter, then you are in control of the game and other players can choose to bet with or against you, i.e. if you win they win, and if you lose they lose. In real casino's this can really make the atmosphere electric.

Place your bet in a permitted section. At online Casino's such as Intercasino, you can only bet in green permitted sections (green), conversely non-permitted betting sections are shown as red. This is a great way to learn Craps rules and betting strategy. (Windows Casino is an ideal place to learn as they will let you play Craps for free).

When you first throw the two dice (note that in a real casino up to five dice will be passed to you and you must pick up only two dice with one hand and throw them to bounce off the far wall of the table) this is called the "Come Out"

The "Come Out"

The result of your initial throw of the dice can be one of three outcomes, depending on the total of your dice;

  • 7 or 11 - you win equal money to your stake
  • 2, 3, or 12 - you lose
  • You have created a "Point" (remember it as a "Starting Point"). The dealer will place a plastic disk with the white side up next to that numbered box on the Craps table, this is so everybody around the table knows what this games "Point" number is.

After the "Point" has been created

As the shooter your objective is now to get the "Point" number again (you win) before you get a 7 (you lose).

Craps Shooter Examples - Winner

  • Your "Come Out" (first) roll is 7 (a Natural) - you are a Winner!
  • Your "Come Out" roll is 11 (a Natural) - you are a Winner!
  • Your "Come Out" roll is 9, the dealer places the plastic disk next to the box numbered 9 to show everybody what this games "Point" (starting number) is. You then roll 6, 4, 12, and then 9 - you are a Winner!

Craps Shooter Examples - Loser

  • Your "Come Out" roll is 2 (a Craps) - you Lose
  • Your "Come Out" roll is 3 ( a Craps) - you Lose
  • Your "Come Out" roll is 12 (a Craps) - you Lose
  • Your "Come Out" roll is 5, the dealer places the plastic disk next to the box numbered 5 to show the "Point". You then roll 1, 8, 3, and then 7 - you Lose.

How Players win (i.e. non-Shooters)

Note that the Shooter can also bet on the same things that Craps players bet on, and is not merely restricted to the above initial bet.

"Pass Line"

The "Pass Line" is the most simple bet in Craps, and is the same as being the Shooter (the one who throws the dice). When you bet on the "Pass Line" you are betting with the Shooter, that the Shooter will win. Almost every player bets on the "Pass Line", which is an even money bet - if you bet $5 on the pass line and the Shooter wins the you will get $10 back ($5 winnings, plus your original $5).

To bet on the "Pass Line" place your bet on the "Pass Line" area on the table on a come out roll (the first roll of a Shooter (the player who is throwing the dice). If the "Come Out" roll is a 7 or 11 you win, which is also called a “Natural”. If the come out roll is a 2, 3, or 12 (craps) you lose.

If any Point is rolled on the come out roll if the point is rolled again before a 7 you win. If a 7 comes before the point you lose. That is all there is to it. Once you understand the pass line bet you are ready to play craps.

"Don't Pass Line"

This is almost the opposite of the Craps "Pass Line", so if you bet on this then you are betting against the Shooter, that the Shooter will lose.

If the Come Out roll is a 2 or 3 then you win, a 7 or 11 you lose. A 12 is a push (draw). Otherwise the dice are rolled over and over until either the Point or a 7 is rolled. If the 7 comes before the point then you are the winner.

A person betting on the "Don't Pass" is not the wager of choice by many players, since this bet is betting against the Shooter. This is also called a "wrong" bettor and is usually winning when everyone else is losing, and vice versa.
