If you are a Blackjack player and you would like to try another casino table game then you might want to consider the game of craps. Casino Craps really isn’t like the game of blackjack in any way except that they are both games of chance, and that they are both casino table games. Beyond these superficial similarities the games each have their own personalities. If you would like to learn the game of craps you will have to start from square one.
How to Bet in Craps
The game of craps is very simple. You place a bet on the table and wait for the shooter to decide your fate. The first type of bet that you can make is the Pass the Line Bet. For this bet you will place your chips on the craps table in the box labeled “Pass Line”. This bet must be made before the shooter’s come out roll. To win this bet the shooter must roll a seven or eleven. If they roll a 2, 3, or 12 then you lose. If the shooter rolls a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 then a point is awarded and your bet is pushed. To win the Pass the Line Bet the shooter will need to roll another point before rolling a 7. This type of bet pays even money.
Another type of bet that you can make at the craps table is a Come Bet. This type of bet is made by placing your chips on the box marked Come. To win this bet the shooter needs to roll 7 or 11 on their come out roll. If they hit a 2, 3, or 12 on their come out roll you lose. However, if they roll any of the remaining numbers you get a point. At this point the dealer will move your chips from the Come Bar to the Come Point that the dice landed on, a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 depending on the point roll. To win this bet now the shooter will need to roll this come point again before they roll a 7. This bet also pays even money.
