Craps calls players from all ages, and all levels of expertise to play this high spirited game from all over the world, including South Africa. The game is often misperceived by new comers and is said to be quite daunting if you don’t know the rules. The truth is, yes there are a few rules you need to keep in mind, and no it’s actually a really simple game that you’ll catch onto fast.
You’ve got it
Craps is an online casino dice game consisting of 2 dice. There can be quite a few players betting on the same game at the same time. To start the game a player will roll the 2 dice whilst the other players bet on the roll. They each take turns to roll the dice.
7 and 11 are the lucky numbers, and if the first roll of the 2 dice lands on these numbers it’s a win. If the dice lands on 2, 3 or 12 it’s ‘craps’ and you lose. If the dice lands on any other number the dice will have to be rolled again to land on exactly the same number or it will have to land on a 7 to break the cycle.
To familiarise yourself with some of the terminology take note of the following. The player that rolls the dice is called the ‘shooter’. And the first dice roll is called the ‘come out roll’.
Get to know the game
There are different bets you can place with craps, and experience is what’s going to familiarise yourself with them all. To get started though here are a few of the most popular one’s for you to remember:
• The first most popular bet is the ‘pass line’ bet. This bet is relevant if the shooters dice doesn’t land on a 7, 11 (winners) and 2, 3 or 12 (losers) and instead lands on a number in between. The next roll of the dice is to aim for a 7 or for exactly the same number you landed on to begin with. If you land on that same number you bet is won, if it lands on the 7 first it’s lost.
• The ‘don’t pass’ bet is basically the opposite of the pass line bet. If your come out roll lands on a 2, 3 or 12 it’s a win and a loss if you land on a 7 or 11. If the dice roll lands on the 7 first you’ve won.
• The ‘come’ bet is when the ‘come out roll’ lands on a 7, 11 (winners) and 2, 3 or 12 (losers) however this time. If the dice land on one of the other numbers this number is what you’ll be aiming to land on with your next roll. If you land on this number before you hit a 7 you win, if you land on the 7 first you lose.
• And the last most popular bet is the ‘don’t come’ bet which is the opposite of the ‘come’ bet. If the ‘come out roll’ lands on the 7 or 11 you lose, and 2, 3 or 12 you win. If you land on a 7 first you win.
