Let us teach you this exhilarating game. Your questions are always welcome and our staff will do everything possible to show you a great time during your stay.

How To Play Craps

The Game of Craps

The object of the game is to roll two dice, establish a point by rolling a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, and then repeat the same number before rolling a seven (“Pass”). Players can bet on the shooter. Or, they can bet the shooter will roll a seven before rolling the point (“Don’t Pass”).

The Pass and Don’t Pass areas are clearly defined on the Craps table layout or cover (see photo). In order to shoot the dice, you must make a bet on either the Pass Line or the Don’t Pass Line. Other players may place bets when the stickman says “coming out”.

Pass Line

When you put your money on the Pass Line and the shooter rolls a 7 or 11 on the come out roll of the dice, you win. However, if the shooter rolls a 2, 3 or 12 (Craps), you lose. If any other number comes up (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10), it becomes the shooter’s point. The shooter must roll that point again, before a 7, in order for you to win. If the point is rolled, you will be paid the amount of your Pass Line bet.

Come

After a point has been established, you may make a Come bet. This area is also clearly defined on the Craps layout. You may bet this any time after the come out roll. When you bet the Come Line, you win if the next roll is a 7 or 11. You lose if the next roll is a 2, 3 or 12. If any other number is rolled (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10), your bet is moved to that number. Should a 7 roll before your number, you lose. However, if your number rolls before a 7 is rolled, you win the amount you bet on the Come Line.

Don’t Come

After a point has been established, you may make a Don’t Come bet. This area is also clearly defined on the Craps layout. You may bet this area any time after the come out roll. When you bet the Don’t Come Line, you win if the next roll is a 3 or a 12. If that next roll is a 2, it is a standoff or push. Should that next roll be a 7 or 11, you lose. If any other number is rolled (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10), it becomes your number. If that number rolls before a 7, your bet loses. However, if a 7 rolls first, you win even money on your Don’t Come bet.

Field

This is a one-roll bet and may be bet at any time. If you bet the Field and a 3, 4, 9, 10 or 11 rolls, you win the amount you have bet. However, if a 2 or 12 rolls, you win twice the amount bet. Should any other number roll (5, 6, 7 or 8), you lose your bet.

Big Six or Eight

On the outside corners of each side of the Craps layout you will see a big red 6 and 8. On this bet you are wagering that a 6 or 8 will roll before a 7 rolls. If it does, you win even money. You may put this bet down or take it off any time you choose.

Any Seven

On this you are wagering that a 7 will roll on the next throw of the dice. If it does, you win four times the amount of your bet. This is a one-roll bet.

Bet The Horn

On this bet you are wagering that a 2, 3, 11 or 12 will roll on the next toss of the dice. Betting the Horn is a fun bet that pays high odds if you win. If a 2 or a 12 is rolled, you win 30 to 1. If a 3 or an 11 is rolled, you win 15 to 1. This is a one-roll bet.

Hard Ways

You are wagering that the next time a 4, 6, 8 or 10 is rolled, it will be rolled as a pair of 2s, 3s, 4s or 5s. Place your bet on the 6 and 8 area for 9 to 1 odds or the 4 and 10 area for a 7 to 1 payoff.

Any Craps

This one-roll bet can also be made at any time. If a 2, 3 or a 12 is rolled, you win 7 times your bet.

Any Eleven

This is a one-roll proposition and you can bet on any roll. If an 11 is rolled you win 15 times your bet.

Odds Bets

After establishing a point by rolling a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, you can bet any amount up to double the amount of your original bet on that number. If a 4 or 10 is rolled, you collect 2 to 1; if 5 or 9 come up, you get 3 to 2. A roll of 6 or 8 pays 6 to 5. Odds Bets can be removed any time before a roll.

Place Bets

These are much the same as Odds Bets, except that instead of establishing a point, you choose the number. Win 9 to 5 on 4 or 10, 7 to 5 on 5 or 9 and 7 to 6 on 6 or 8.

Buy Bets

Another way to bet is to buy the numbers by paying the casino a 5% commission. In other words a $20 bet + $1 will pay you $40(2 to 1) on 4 or 10, a $20 bet +$1 will pay you $30 on 5 or 9(3 to 2) and a $20 bet + $1 will pay you $24(6 to 5) on 6 or 8.
