Craps - Types of Bets


There are several types of bets that can be placed on the craps table:

The Pass Bet
This is a bet that you will throw a 7 or 11 on the come-out roll or, alternatively, that you will make the point before the next 7 is rolled.

The Don't Pass Bet
This is the opposite of the pass bet. This bet is placed against you (the shooter) and wins if craps (2, 3 or 12) is thrown on the come-out roll or if you fail to make the point. If a 12 is thrown, the bet ties.

The Come Bet
This bet is similar to the pass bet but cannot be made on the come-out roll. Traditionally the Come and Don’t Come bets are available to allow players just joining the table to take part in the action immediately, instead of having to wait for the shooter to make or miss the point!

The Don't Come Bet
Again, this bet is similar to the ‘Don't Pass’ bet, but cannot be made on the come-out roll.

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. 'Odds' bets can only be made once the point has been established. The advantage of an Odds bet is that it is paid out at the correct odds.

Win Bet
This bet can be made on the following numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10. It is a bet that the relevant number will be rolled BEFORE a seven is rolled.

Lose Bet
This bet can be made on the following numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10. It is a bet that a seven will be rolled BEFORE the relevant number comes up.

Field Bet
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays even money if a 3, 4, 9, 10 or 11 are rolled and pays 2 to 1 if a 2 or 12 are rolled.

Hardways Bet
This bet can be made on a 4, 6, 8 or 10. It is a bet that the relevant number will be rolled in its double form (i.e. 2 dice showing 4 would be HARDWAY 8) BEFORE a seven AND before that number is rolled in any other combination.

Any Seven
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays 5 for 1 (4 to 1) if a seven is rolled in the next throw.

Any Craps
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays 8 for 1 (7 to 1) if a 2, 3 or 12 is rolled in the next throw.

Craps Two
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays 30 to 1 if a 2 is rolled in the next throw.

Craps Twelve
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays 30 to 1 if a 12 is rolled in the next throw.

Craps Three
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays 15 to 1 if a 3 is rolled in the next throw.

Eleven
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays 15 to 1 if an 11 is rolled in the next throw.

Horn
This is a single roll bet on any craps (2, 3 or 12) and 11. Odds are paid out accordingly.

Big 6 and Big 8
These are a bet that the appropriate number (6 or 8) will be rolled before the next seven. It pays even money.
