Rules

The first part of craps is figuring out your own point number. The way to obtain a “point number” is to roll the dice against the wall and try to roll a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or a 10. These are the only numbers that can be point numbers. When you make the first roll, it is called a “come out” roll and by rolling a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 you have established your point number.

So if the shooter rolls a 2, 3, or 12 on his first roll then that is called “craps” and he loses his “pass line” bet. If the shooter rolls a 7 or an 11 then he wins the pass line bet. So by rolling a 2, 3, 7, 11, or 12 the round will end and a new come out roll will take place by the same shooter, but if the shooter rolled a point number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10) then the shooter will re-roll until he rolls a 7 or his point number.

If the shooter rolls his point number first then he will win the pass line bet, the round will end, and that same shooter will roll a new come out roll. But if he rolls the 7 first then the player loses the pass line bet, the rounds ends, and the dice are passed to the player to his left.

Craps Betting

Betting on craps is very unique and there are many options for placing wagers. Players can bet on the way the round will end (point number or a 7 comes out), specific numbers, or a specific total be rolled before a 7. The new shooter must bet either on the pass line or the “don’t pass” line.

The pass line bet is won if the shooter rolls a 7 or 11, but is lost if he rolls a 2,3, or 12. If the come out roll is a point number then the shooter will win a pass line bet if he rolls his point number before a 7. The opposite goes for a don’t pass line bet. Players around the table will make bets on all sort of things and they may enter or leave the game at any time.

Discipline

The key to craps is having discipline and knowing when to leave the table. Set a goal for yourself and once you reach that goal take your winnings and leave. This can also be applied for losses and do not spend more then you are willing to lose.
