Craps rules and fundamentals:
Casino Craps (also known as Bank Craps) is a dice game. Yelling and shouting are common at a craps table. It is played with two dice on a specific table. To maintain quality, the dice are inspected for damage on a regular basis. After around eight hours of use, the dice are replaced, and casinos have standards for how a player should treat them.
To begin, the Shooter (one of the players) must place a minimum bet on either the Pass Line or the Don't Pass Line (also known as "win" or "right" bets). The Stickman hands the shooter a large number of dice (typically five) and instructs them to choose two. The remaining dice are returned to the Stickman's Bowl.
The shooter must toss the dice with one hand alone, and they must hit the opposing table wall. When one or both dice are thrown, they must be examined (usually by the stickman) before being re-rolled.
Each player gets a turn tossing or'shooting' the dice. You can also bet on who will toss the dice. On the table activity, various bets can be placed. Each dealer has his or her own distinct flair.
At the end of each round, each player takes turns rolling the dice and travels clockwise around the craps table. Even if you are not rolling, you can still gamble.
The two rounds are Come Out and Point. A round begins when a shooter rolls a Come Out. The round is completed with a Come Out roll of 2, 3, or 12 (called Craps, the shooter is referred to 'crap out'). Pass Line bets win if the Come Out roll is a 7 or an 11. (a Natural). The shooter continues to make Come Out rolls until he receives a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. To begin the second phase, assign an On button to the point number. Pass Line bets win if the shooter rolls the point number. If the shooter rolls a seven, the pass line is lost and the round is over.
In a betting round, the Come Out roll is the first dice roll. When the preceding shooter fails to make a winning roll (Point or Seven-out), a Come Out roll can be made (rolls a seven).
After then, a new shooter game begins. If the present shooter scores, the dice are returned to him, and he rolls again. The Come Out roll technically marks the beginning of a new game.
If the shooter fails to score a Point, the dice are given to the next player for a new Come Out roll, and the game continues. This means that the game is played clockwise around the craps table.
They're being rolled across the table. The layout is divided into three portions: two side sections and one central section. You can wager on either the field or the odds, or both. The proposition bets are in the middle of each side region.
Pass bets win if the come-out roll is a 7 or 11, but they lose if it is a 2, 3, or 12. Don't place a bet on a 7 or 11, and don't place a bet on a 2 or 3. Inform the casino when the come-out roll is a 12 (2 in some casinos; the 'Bar' roll on the layout reflects this).
To play craps without being the shooter, a player must first determine whether or not the dealer's "On" button is on any of the point numbers. If the point number is Off, it's time to come out. Most casinos offer a Pass Line bet during the Point round if the dealer's button is "On." Single and multi-roll 'Proposition bets' are permitted in both rounds.
Between dice rolls, dealers issue payouts and collect losing bets, and players can place new bets. The stickman monitors the table and decides when to pass the dice to the shooter.
A list of possible craps bets is shown below
- Pass Line Bet - This bet wins on a natural (7, 11) but loses on a craps (2, 3, 12). A point (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10) must be rolled twice before a 7 to win. You lose if the 7 comes first.
- The Pass Line Bet is a wager on the shooter scoring the most points. The Pass Line Bet wins if the Come Out roll is a 7 or an 11. If the Come Out roll is 2, 3, or 12, the stake is lost. The bet is won if the point is rolled again before a seven. The bet is lost ('seven out') if a seven is rolled before the established point is re-rolled. A Pass Line victory is unheard of.
- You can place an additional bet once a point is rolled by taking odds. Each point has a distinct reward. A 4 or a 10 pays 2:1; a 5 or a 9 pays 3:1; and a 6 or an 8 pays 6:5. If the point comes before a 7, you win.
- Come bets are the same as pass line bets. The distinction is that you can only place this bet once you've determined the pass line point. The Come Bet is placed on the pass line on a Come Out roll. The come point is determined by the first dice roll following your bet. You win if it's a natural (7, 11). (2, 3, 12). You win if the come point is repeated before a 7. If a 7 comes first, you lose.
- A Come Bet, like a Pass Line Bet, is made in two rounds. The key distinction is that a Come Bet is placed on the shooter's first point number rolled, regardless of the table's round. In the first round, a 7 or an 11 wins. It loses if the number is 2, 3, or 12. If the shooter's number is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, the base dealer advances the Come Bet to a Box that corresponds to that number. The player can then increase the odds on the stake. To distinguish between the two, the odds will be positioned slightly off-center on top of the Come Bet. If the seven comes before the number, the second The Come Bet loses as long as the shooter's come bet isn't a seven. The Come Bet is active on a Come Out roll for the pass line, but the odds are not unless the player notifies the dealer otherwise.
- If the shooter makes their point, a player may be faced with a Come Bet (perhaps with odds) and a Come Out roll as a result of the Come Bet. Odds bets on the Come Out roll are regarded to be meaningless in this situation. If the shooter rolls a 7, any active Come Bets waiting for a 'come point' lose their initial wager but receive their odds back. Even if the 'come point' is rolled, the odds lose, but the Come Bet wins. If the shooter rolls a number that matches the 'come point,' the odds bet and the Come Bet both win; if the shooter rolls a seven, both lose.
