Craps is a popular American dice game that is played on a special table with 2 dice. At the beginning of the game the player has to place a pass line bet or don't pass line bet - these are initial bets and they are placed before the shooter establishes the point by rolling the dice. The Pass Line is an even-money bet that wins if the dice land on 7 or 11 on the Come Out Roll (first roll of the dice in a betting round). The bet looses if the dice land on 2, 3 or 12. In case of Don't Pass Line Bets, the player wins if the come out roll shows 2 or 3 and looses if the dice shows 7 or 11, and if the shooter rolls a 12 the bet is a tie.
Once the point is established, the bettor can place additional bets and they are the following:
Come and Don't Come Bets: Come bet wins if a 7 or 11 are rolled and loses if 2 or 3 is rolled. If a point number is rolled then the stake is moved onto that number and win if the point is rolled before a 7. Don't Come Bets are the complete opposite, a 2 or a 3 is a winner and a 7 or 11 is a loser. If a point is rolled then Don't Come bets win if a 7 is rolled before the point.
Place Bets: Place Win Bet is a bet that a specific number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10) will hit before a 7. Place Lose Bet is a Â bet a 7 will hit before a specified number.
Field Bets: . If a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 12 is rolled you win. A 5, 6, 7 and 8 make you lose.
Odds Bet: This is an additional bet made on a Pass, Don't Pass, Come or Don't Come bet that has already been placed and this bet has no house advantage.
Big 6, Big 8 Bets: The bet wins if a 6 or 8 comes out before a 7 is rolled.
One roll bets: Aces or Boxcars: Wins if a 2 or 12 is thrown. Hardways: A bet that a "double" (for example two 3's) will hit before a 7. Any Craps: Wins if a 2, 3 or 12 is thrown. Any Seven: Wins if a 7 is rolled. Eleven: Wins if a 11 is thrown. Ace Deuce: Wins if a 3 is rolled. Horn Bet: it acts as the bets on 2, 3, 11 and 12 all at once. Wins if one of these numbers is rolled.
