The Basics of Craps
When you play Craps, you have a number of different wagers to make. You can place bets on either one of the six numbers or on all ten numbers. If a number is thrown before the point or after the point, you win the wager. If a number is thrown after the point, you lose the wager. Each bet has a different payout, depending on how many points were bet. For instance, a bet on a four- or a six- or eight-point comes up as a nine-or-ten pays 7.5; an 8- or 9-point bet pays out at 7:6.
The game of Craps is based on rolling dice to determine the odds of a roll. You can bet on the number of dice that fall on the roll. If the number is less than 12, you are out of luck. A push occurs when the number is more than 12. In contrast, a point occurs when the number is greater than twelve. A point is established if the come out roll lands on a 3, five, or eight.
A point in Craps can occur on any number. When the shooter rolls a two, three, or twelve, it loses. If the player chooses to make a pass line bet, they are putting their money in the Pass Line wager. If the point number comes up on the come out roll, they can place a Pass Line wager. The casino also accepts Bets on Pass Line and Don’t Pass.
In Craps, you can make a bet on any number. There are many betting options, from simple to complex. There are also a number of simple bets that can pay off big. A field bet is the simplest and most straightforward bet, and pays out 1:1 or 2:1. The odds of the shooter rolling a two- or a three-point roll are low, so you can bet on the point.
The rules of Craps are not as complex as they might seem. Some simple bets can be very profitable, so don’t worry about making complicated bets. In Craps, you can place bets on the pass, come, and ten. For example, the pass bet pays out 1:1. The come bet pays out 2:1. If the shooter rolls a two, the odds of winning a field bet are 1.36%.
The first part of the game is called the “come out”. The point is when the numbers are the same as the point on the come out roll. If the numbers are the same as the point on a come out roll, the game is said to be tied. The “free odds” bet is only available once the point has been established. If the point on the come out roll is higher, the player wins, and the other player loses, the game is called a push.
