Among the many casino games featured at online casinos, craps is one of the most exciting games you can play because there are so many variables attached to it. When you take a first look at the craps table, it can be a bit intimidating, but once you understand the rules of the game, it is a shout-at-loud fun game to play using a pair of dice.

Craps Rules

The first roll of the dice in a Craps round is called the come out roll. If the dice total is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10; then the point is established. On the other hand, if you roll a total of 2, 3, 7, 11, or 12 on the come out roll; then the round ends. When the point has been established, an “ON” puck will be placed on the point. After the point is rolled the dice will be rolled continuously until the same point is rolled again or until a 7 comes out, ending the round.

Craps Buttons

To make a bet, click on the Coin button to select the appropriate chips and place them on the table. Use the Coin button to adjust the size of your wager by clicking on the chips. Click on the Roll button to start the game. The Clear button will clear all bets.

Betting Options

There are a variety of bets you can make in Craps. Here is a list of the type of bets, including an explanation.

Pass Line Bets

The pass line bet is placed on the pass line before the come out roll. If you roll a 7 or 11, you win and the round is done. If you roll a 2, 3, or 12, this is called craps and you lose. If you roll any other number (4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10), the point is made. You win on the pass line bet if the point is rolled before a 7. You lose the pass line bet, if a 7 is rolled before the point. A winning pass line bet pays even money (1 to 1).

Don’t Pass Line Bets

A don’t pass line bet is the opposite of a pass line bet, and is placed on the craps table in the “Don’t Pass Bar” before the come out roll. For a don’t pass line bet, you are betting that the shooter will roll 7 before rolling the point. You win on the come out roll if the dice total is 2 or 3, and lost if you roll a 7 or 11. If the come out roll is 12, it is a tie and the don’t pass line bet is returned to the player in a push. If the come out roll is a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, the POINT is established. To win the bet, you must roll a 7 before the point is repeated. If you repeat the point before a 7 is rolled, the don’t pass line bet loses. Once the point is established, the bet may not be removed or changed. A winning don’t pass line bet pays even money (1 to 1).

Come Bets

To place a come bet, put your chips in the box labeled Come. You win even money if the next roll is either a 7 or 11. You lose if the next roll is craps (2, 3, or 12). If the shooter rolls a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, then that number becomes the come point, and the come bet is moved from the “COME” bar to the box corresponding to the come point. If the shooter rolls the come point again before rolling a 7, you win the bet. If a 7 is rolled first, you lose the bet. The come bet pays even money (1 to 1).

Don’t Come Bets

A don’t come bet is the opposite of a come bet. It is placed after the come out roll in the “Don’t Come Bar” on the craps table. If the shooter rolls a 2 or 3, the don’t come bet wins. If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11, the don’t come bet loses. If the shooter rolls a 12, the bet will be returned to the player in a push.

If the roll is a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, that number becomes the “don’t come point,” and the don’t come bet is moved from the “Don’t Come Bar” to the bar in the upper left corner of the box corresponding to the don’t come point. Once the don’t come point is established, don’t come bets win even money (1 to 1). To win the bet, you must roll a 7 before the come point is repeated. If you repeat the come point before a 7 is rolled, the don’t come bet loses.

Odds Bets

An odds bet is a backup bet on a pass, don’t pass, come, and don’t come bet. Your maximum bet is 3x your original bet.

Pass odds and come odds pay 2 to 1 on a roll of 4 or 10; 3 to 2 on a roll of 5 and 9; and 6 to 5 on a roll of 6 and 8. Don’t pass odds pay 1 to 2 on a roll of 4 or 10; 2 to 3 on a roll of 5 and 9; and 5 to 6 on a roll of 6 and 8.

Unlike original pass, don’t pass, come, don’t come bets, and unresolved odds bets can be removed from the table during play.

Pass Line Odds Bets

Place a pass line odds bet by clicking on the craps table outside of the “Pass Line” bar, under your original pass line bet. A winning pass line odds bet pays true odds: 2 to 1 on a roll of 4 or 10; 3 to 2 on a roll of 5 or 9; and 6 to 5 on a roll of 6 or 8.

Don’t Pass Line Odds Bets

Place a don’t pass line odds bet by clicking on the right side of your original bet in the “Don’t Pass Bar”, exactly on the 6 x 6 dice image. A winning don’t pass line odds bet pays true odds: 1 to 2 on a roll of 4 or 10, 2 to 3 on a roll of 5 or 9, and 5 to 6 on a roll of 6 or 8.

Come and Don’t Come Odds Bets

Come and don’t come odds bets are placed beneath the Come and Don’t Come bets, after they have been moved to the point’s box.

A winning come bet odds pays: 2 to 1 on a roll of 4 or 10; 3 to 2 on a roll of 5 or 9; and 6 to 5 on a roll of 6 or 8.

A winning don’t come bet odds pays: 1 to 2 on a roll of 4 or 10; 2 to 3 on a roll of 5 or 9; and 5 to 6 on a roll of 6 or 8.

Field Bets

A field bet means that the next roll of the dice will be a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, or 12. To place a field bet, place your chips in the Field bar. If the shooter rolls a 2 or 12, you get paid double your initial bet (2 to 1). If a 3, 4, 9, 10, or 11 come up, you get paid even money (1 to 1). You lose the bet if a 5, 6, 7, or 8 are rolled.

Big 6 and Big 8 Bets

Place your chips in the box marked Big 6 or Big 8. If the number you select is rolled before a 7, you win even money (1 to 1).
