Craps - Playing the Game
Playing Craps can be as simple or as complicated as you choose to make it. There are an extensive array of betting options available but you only need to understand a few of them to play the game, have fun and win.
Craps is a game of dice. You are betting on which numbers the next roll of the dice will produce (or won't produce). In its simplest form you (the shooter) will place a bet on the Pass line (or on the Don't Pass Line) and try to roll a seven or an eleven. If you succeed the bet will pay even money and you can make another bet. This first roll is called the 'Come Out' roll.
Should you fail to roll a seven or eleven then a 'point' is established on the number of the value of the dice rolled. Once a point is established your object is to roll the same number again before the next seven is rolled. If a seven is rolled you lose your bet. Once a point has been established you cannot remove your bet from the table.
While you are trying to make the point you can add extra bets to the table. These are described in the Types of Bets section.
