Gamblers at a Craps Table

If you are wanting excitement, noise and more entertainment than you can likely stand, then craps is the only game to wager on.

Craps is a quick-paced gambling game with whales, budget gamblers, and everybody in the middle. If you are a people-watcher this is one game that you’ll absolutely enjoy observing. There’s the high roller, gambling with a huge bank roll and making boisterous proclamations when she bets across the board, "520 dollars across," you’ll hear her say. He’s the player to observe at this table and they know it. They will either win big-time or lose big and there’s no in between.

There’s the budget gambler, most likely attempting to acquaint themselves with the whales. He will tell the other bettors of books she’s read on dice setting and converge on the hottest player at the table, prepared to confer and "pick each others brains".

There’s the devotee of Frank Scoblete latest craps class. Although Frank is the best there is, his student needs to do his homework. This player will take five minutes to setup his dice, so apply understanding.

My favorite players at the table are the true chaps from the old days. These elderly guys are usually tolerant, generally generous and will almost always give pointers from the "good ole days."

When you take the plunge and choose to participate in the game, make certain you use correct etiquette. Find a spot on the rail and place your money on the table in front of you in the "come" spot. Never do this when the dice are in motion or you will be referred to as the very last character I wanted to talk about, the jerk.
