Casino Craps

Live Casino Craps is played with a large deep table with steep curved walls. This is to allow dice to be rolled across the table. The players themselves roll the dice and bet on the likelihood of different outcomes. When a player is rolling the dice they become the 'shooter'. Prior to throwing players have to bet on either the Pass or Don't Pass line. These types of bets are similar to the backing or laying of a horse. If you are placing a Pass bet you are essentially backing whilst if you are placing a Don't Pass bet, you are betting against the shooter.

Craps Overview

The number 7 is integral to craps, it is the main deciding factor in any round. A round of craps starts with a come-out roll. This is when a shooter rolls two dice if the sum of these two dice is not 2,3,7,11 or 12 what is called a point is established. If a 2, 3 or 12 is rolled in the come-out roll an event called 'craps' or 'crapping out' occurs. When this happens anyone betting on the Pass line loses, for those betting on the Don't Pass Line there is either a win or a tie if the number 12 is the total of the two dice. If the come-out roll is a 7 or 11 the Pass line wins and the next shooter on the table takes their turn.

If a Point is Made

If a point is made and to win a Pass Line bet the shooter has to match the score made on the initial come-out throw. The dice do not have to feature the same numbers, just the total needs to be the same. If the shooter rolls a seven before they roll the same as the come-out throw Pass Line bets lose and Don't Pass line bets win. After a seven is rolled the game starts again with a new point being set, usually a new shooter. This is a very much simplified version of the game of Live Casino Craps, In total, there are over 40 types of bet. If you are not familiar with laying then stay with Pass line bets until you become more familiar with the game. A Craps table is featured in the image below.
