How To Play Craps

One of the fastest and most exciting games in a casino, Craps gives the player a great opportunity to win large amounts of money as the Casino has a low house percentage against the player - i.e. the odds of a player beating the Casino are somewhat higher than in some other Casino games.

Probably due to the complicated-looking table layout, the game itself is little understood however the table is misleading as the game of Craps is very simple indeed - a player with the dice (the Shooter) rolls a pair of dice and their outcome determines whether he, and the other players win or lose.

Shooting Craps

The Shooter's first roll of the dice is called the "Come Out" Roll, and he can win or lose with that throw;

  • If he rolls a 7 or 11 he, and the players who chose to bet with him, win.
  • If he throws a 2, 3 or 12, that is "Craps," and he and the players who chose to bet with him, lose.

If the dice totals 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, that number becomes the shooter's established "Point," and he must continue rolling the dice until he makes the number again in order to win. However, if the shooter rolls a 7 before his point, he "Sevens Out" and loses.

Although the object of the Craps game is very simple, Craps is complicated by the mass of bets available to the players. Most of those bets are heavily weighted in favour of the Casino, and should be avoided (read the Craps Betting section for the best bets to play in Craps).

How to become the Shooter

To be eligible to become the Shooter, place a bet on the "Pass Line" or "Don't Pass" Bar. The dice are passed to Players in a clockwise direction so you might have to wait a while for your turn as a Shooter.

If you want to play, but don't want to be a Shooter, you may also place this bet, but are not required to do so and may wait to place a bet after the "Come Out" roll (the first roll of the dice by a Shooter). 

I'm the Shooter - "What do I do now?"

The "Stickman" (the person with the stick who assists the Dealers) will push about five dice towards you. With only one hand, pick up two. Next, roll the dice hard enough so that they hit the wall of the opposite end of the table. The object of this Come Out roll is to establish a "Point", which needs to be something other than a 2, 3, 7, 11 or 12 (it may help you to think of the "Point" as a "Starting Point").

On the Come Out (first) roll, if a 7 or 11 is rolled prior to establishing a Point, you win. If, however, a 2, 3 or 12 is rolled, you lose. If neither of these is the case then you have established a Point.

Once you have established a Point, which will be a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, the Dealer places a plastic disc (white side up) on the corresponding box on the Craps table. At this time, to win you need to roll that Point again (you win) before you roll a 7 (you lose).
