Craps is a dice game in which the players make wagers on the outcome of the roll, or a series of rolls. It is played on a purpose-built table and two dice are used. The dice are made after very strict standards. They are routinely inspected for any damage. Players may wager money against each other or a bank.

The Shooter
To begin, the Shooter must bet at least the table minimum on either the Pass Line or the Don't Pass Line. The Shooter shooses from The Stickman two from multiple dice to roll with. The remaining dice are returned to the Stickman's Bowl and are not used. You must handle the dice with one hand only when throwing. The dice must hit the walls on the opposite end of the table. In the event that one or both dice are thrown off the table, they must be inspected before play with them.
craps review
In each round has two phases:
  • Come Out: To start a round, the shooter makes one or more Come Out rolls. A Come Out roll of 2, 3 or 12 ends the round with players losing their Pass Line bets. A Come Out roll of 7 or 11 results in a win for Pass Line bets.A Come Out roll can be made only when the previous shooter fails to make a winning roll - fails to make the Point or makes a Seven-out.
  • Point: The shooter continues to make Come Out rolls until he rolls 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. The number of all Come Out becomes the Point. The dealer then moves an On button to the point number signifying the second phase of the round. If the shooter rolls the point number, the result is a win for bets on the Pass Line. If the shooter rolls a seven, the pass line loses and the round ends.
A new game then begins with a new shooter. If the current shooter does make his Point, the dice are returned to him and he then begins the new Come Out roll. This is a continuation of that shooter's roll, although technically, the Come Out roll identifies a new game about to begin. If the Shooter fails to make his/her Point, the dice are then offered to the next player for a new Come Out roll. The game continues in the same manner. The new shooter will be the person directly next to the left of the previous shooter.

List of the various bets

  • Pass Line Bet:
  • When the First roll is a natural (7, 11) - you win. If it is craps (2, 3, 12) - you lose. If a point is rolled (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10) it must be repeated before a 7 is thrown in order to win. If 7 is rolled before the point - you lose. Pass Line Bet is the fundamental bet in craps. A Pass Line Bet is won immediately if the Come Out roll is a 7 or 11. If the Come Out roll is 2, 3 or 12 - the bet loses. If the roll is any other number - it establishes a Point;
    • Odds on Pass Line Be:
    • After a point is rolled you can make this additional bet by taking odds. There are different payoffs for deach point. You only win if the point is rolled again before a 7;
