If you’ve ever wondered how to play online Craps, you’ve come to the right place. We’re stoked to share our step by step guide to playing Craps with you.
While in America around 1813, the game underwent a few changes including rule changes. Bernard de Mandeville from New Orleans simplified the game and changed the name to “craps”, which is the French pronunciation for “Crabs”. From here, the game continued to increase its popularity around the U.S. and the game took the world by storm.
Before starting a round in Craps, players will need to place their bets. For a full list of your betting options, check out our list below.
The first round is called the Come Out Roll. During this round, if a player manages to roll a 2, 3, 7, 11, or 12 then the round will end. If any other number is rolled, then the game will continue.
The next round is will establish the points. A point can be a 4, 5, 8, 9, or 10. During this round a black puck is placed on the craps table to indicate what the point is. If the point number is rolled, the dice will be rolled again until the same point or a 7 is rolled.
Once the point has been established, players can place additional bets behind the pass line. This is otherwise known as the Odds Bet. Here, if the shooter hits the point, you will win both the Pass Bet and Odds Bet.
Once the point has been established, players will have another betting option known as the Come or Don't Come Bet. These bets can be placed in addition to the pass line or don't pass line bet. Players are not required to place these additional bets. However, they provide you with better payouts when successful.
Once you have successfully grasped the basics of the craps casino game, you will be skilled enough to start placing even greater additional bets.
During the final round, as soon as the dice stop rolling, losing bets are removed from the table. Winning bets and with tie bets are paid out.
