Craps Rules and Plans

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]


Craps feels like like a difficult game, and it can be, however you do not need to know all of the rules to participate in it well and get a good return. If you stick with the general bets with a low casino advantage and don’t bet when you aren’t certain what it is you’re betting on and its odds.

By betting on the pass line and buying odds you can bet with virtually no house edge. This almost makes the term ‘betting’ false if you really think it over.

Pass Line

The contest starts by laying a bet on either Pass or Don’t Pass before the first toss. If a 7 or 11 is rolled first you profit and two, three, or 12 means you loss if you place a bet on pass. The reverse is valid if you bet on Don’t Pass. Except 12 which is a push if you cast a bet Do not Pass. Most all players places a bet on Pass, so if you choose Do not Pass, do not draw attention to yourself, especially if you come away with a win. If you profit then everyone else just lost, and are not going to take kindly to showing off. Should any number besides 2, three, 7, 11 or 12 be rolled 1st, that number is the point. Don’t wager on the Pass line following the Come Out throw, it’s legal, but the odds are against you.

Buying the Odds

In order to take advantage of the betting with virtually no house edge, you must initially place a bet on the Pass Line. Next you can bet a multiple (depending on the betting house) of your Pass wager that the point will be tossed before a seven. Depending on the number of the point, you can win up to two to one.

Gambling along these general lines will give you with honest hope of coming out a winner. Add the thrills that the craps always appears to generate and the only way to lose is not to play.
