Craps is a dice game played in real life on a rectangular table built to accommodate approximately 20 players. A pair of dice is used. On the table is the betting area where players bet on outcomes of the dice such as specific numbers, pass bets, don’t pass bets, field bets, and many others that we will describe later. On the pass bet, if the shooter comes out and rolls a 2, 3, or 12, this is known as craps and the shooter looses.
Playing The Game
The player rolling the dice is known as the “shooter”. One of the most popular bets in craps is the pass bet. When the shooter makes his initial roll of the dice, this is known as the “come-out roll”. On the come-out roll, the pass bet is won when a 7 or 11 is rolled. The pass bet is lost when a 2, 3, or 12 is rolled. A 2, 3, or 12 on the come-out roll is known as craps. If any total other than 2, 3, 7, 11, or 12 is rolled, then, this value is known as “the point”. The shooter continues to roll the dice until he either repeats the point value or rolls a 7. If the shooter rolls the point value, then he wins! If the shooter rolls a 7 before rolling the point value, then he looses. There is another bet on the craps table called the don’t pass bet, which works almost opposite the pass bet. For the don’t pass betters, a roll of 7 or 11 is an automatic loser and a 2 or 3 is an automatic winner. The 12 is considered a “stand-off”. If there is a point established, the don’t pass betters win if a 7 is rolled before the point.
There is a bet that doesn’t appear on most craps tables that can be placed in conjunction with the pass and come bets. This is what’s known as the odds bet. The odds bet is placed after the point is established. On most on-line casinos, the user places his odds bet behind the pass line. This is a bet that the point will be rolled before a 7 is rolled. This bet is extremely attractive because it pays at the true odds for the bet. For example, the odds of a 5 or 9 will be rolled before a 7 are 3:2 and the bet also pays at 3:2. When casinos offer single odds, the player may only wager up to the amount of his pass line bet. In casinos where double odds are allowed, the player may wager double the amount of his pass bet as his odds bet.
Two other types of bets are the come bet and don’t come bet. These bets work similar to the pass and don’t pass bets except they can only be made after a point is established. The advantages of these bets is that they allow the player to place their bets at a quicker pace than just the pass bets. After a point is established on the come out roll, the player may then bet either a come or don’t come bet. If the next roll is a 7 or 11, the previous come bet is a winner! If the roll is one of the point values, then this value becomes a point for that come bet. If the shooter on his next roll, rolls a point that was established then the come bet is a winner, however, if the shooter rolls a 7 or 11 on this roll or subsequent rolls, then all come bets up to this point are losers, except for the current come bet. The don’t come bet works almost the opposite of this and which is similar to the don’t pass bet working the opposite of the pass bet.
Another bet in craps is the field bet. The field bet is a Togel Singapore bet that the next roll of the dice will produce a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 or 12. Usually a roll of 2 or 12 will pay at 2:1 and others at even money. Another bet is what is known as the win bet. The player wins on the number he bets upon if it is rolled before a 7. Payouts on a 4 or 10 pay at 9:5, 5 or 9 pay at 7:5, and 6 or 8 pay at 7:6. There is also the loose bet which is a bet that a 7 will be rolled before the number bet on. Loosing on 4 or 10, pays at 2:5; 5 or 9 pays at 4:7; 6 or 8 pays at 4:5. Another bet is hardways bet. This is a bet that the number bet on will be rolled as a double before a 7 or the number is rolled in any other combination. A hardways 4 or 10 pays 8:1 and hardways 6 or 8 pays 10:1.
Another bet in crap is the any seven bet. This is a bet that a seven will be thrown in the next roll of the dice and pays at 4:1. The any craps bet is a bet that a 2, 3, or 12 will be thrown in the next roll of the dice and pays at 7:1. There are also bets known as Craps Two, Craps Three, and Craps Twelve. These are bets that a 2, 3, or 12 will be rolled next. Craps Two and Crap Twelve pay at 30:1 and Craps Three pays at 15:1. There is also an Eleven bet which is that an 11 will be thrown in the next roll of the dice and this pays at 15:1.
Two bets the player should always avoid is the Big Six and the Big Eight bets. These bets are identical to the win bets when the user bets on a six or eight; except the user is only paid at even money instead of at 7:6. There is no reason to bet on the Big Six or the Big Eight.
All craps bets except the odds bets have some type of house edge. The odds bet pays true odds so therefore neither the player or the house has an edge. One might think that with no advantage either way, why place the bet at all? The answer is that the player should always place this bet in order to reduce the grind factor. The grind factor is especially cut at sites which offer double odds or more.
