Learn to play online craps

Craps is a game of dice, in which players bet on the outcome of one roll or several rolls of one pair of dice. Since playing craps does not require too much equipment, it can be played outside casinos too. Players can either play against one another or against the house.

Craps is a complex game as it involves a large number of betting options; however, beginners will find it incredibly easy to learn how to play craps.

How to Play Craps

Despite its complex rules, craps is one of the easiest casino games for beginners. Craps has around 40 betting options, but players do not even need to know all the betting options before playing craps. Craps experts say that any beginner can play a game of real money craps if they understand how to place the Passline Bet, which has a low house edge of 1.41%.

Like any other casino game, players need to wager on a particular outcome before the pair of craps dice is rolled. A Passline Bet is a bet placed on the possibility that the outcome of one roll of the dice pair will be either 11 or 7. Players will lose their bets if the outcome turns out to be 2, 3, or 12. If the outcome is any other number, it is considered as the “point number,” and the shooter must get the point number first before getting 7 if players are to win their bets. If the shooter gets seven before he/she gets the point number, players will lose their bets.

Types of Craps Bets

The Come Bet is similar to the Passline Bet, except that players must place the Come Bet just before the dice are rolled again. If the outcome is 7 or 11, players will win their bet, and if the outcome is 2, 3, or 12, players will lose their bets. If the outcome is any other number, the Come Bet is assigned a number, and if that number turns up before a 7 during the next few rolls, players will win their bets.

Odds Bets are immensely popular because they do not have any house edge. Other types of Craps bets are Place Bets, Buy Bets, Lay Bets, Big 8 or Big 6 Bets, and Field Bets.
