Craps

Craps is one of the more exciting table games played in casinos today. It is one of the few truly social games played in modern casinos, and one of the few played with dice. While the game's apparent complexity and odd jargon may, at first, be intimidating you will find the game of Craps to be easy to learn, enjoyable and rewarding.

What are slots?
Craps is one of the more exciting and social table games played in casinos today. While the game does look complex and has its own extensive jargon like "boxcars", "hard ways" and "horn bet" it is a relatively simple game to master. Craps is usually played on a large sunken table. On the table"s surface is printed a complicated-looking pattern. The game is played with a pair of dice, which are thrown by the "shooter", a player who is currently holding the dice. Other players may join in and place their own bets.

The game of Craps can be as simple or as complicated as the player wishes to make it. There are quite a number of bets to choose from. In the simplest form of the game the shooter places a bet on the Pass Line and attempts to roll a seven.

Craps Features
The Roll button will start a game of Craps by rolling the dice. The Roll button will only work if there is a bet on the table.

The table felt is divided up according to the pattern of a traditional craps table. It is strongly suggested that you read up about the kinds of bets available in the Types of Bets section. To place a wager on any of these bet types simply left click on the table to increase the size of your bet, and right click to decrease.

The Chip Size menu allows you to adjust the size of the increments of your wager. If you are using a Chip size of 1 then each mouse click will only add or remove 1 from the current pile of chips on the table.

The Undo, Redo, Clear and Repeat buttons are provided to allow you to rapidly change the bets on the table.

The Undo button removes all changes made to the table since the last bet.

The Redo button reverses the effect of the Undo.

The Clear button removes all chips that are not on established points.

The Repeat button replicates the table's state before the previous bet as closely as is possible given that new points have been established and some betting fields become unavailable.

Playing the Game
Playing Craps can be as simple or as complicated as you choose to make it. There are an extensive array of betting options available but the player only needs to understand a few of them to play the game, have fun and win.

Craps is a game of dice. The player is betting on which numbers the next roll of the dice will produce (or won't produce.) In its simplest form the player (called the shooter) will place a bet on the Pass line (or on the Don't Pass Line) and try to roll a seven or an eleven. If the shooter succeeds the bet will pay even money and the shooter can make another bet. This first roll is called the 'Come Out' roll.

Should the player fail to roll a seven or eleven then a 'point' is established on the number of the value of the dice rolled. Once a point is established the shooter's object is to roll the same number again before the next seven is rolled. If a seven is rolled the shooter looses his bet. Once a point has been established the shooter can not remove his bet from the table.

While the shooter is trying to make the point he can add extra bets to the table. These are described in the Types of Bets section.

Types of Bets
There are several types of bets that can be placed on the craps table:

The Pass Bet
This is a bet that the shooter will throw a 7 or 11 on the come-out roll or, alternatively, that the shooter will make the point before the next 7 is rolled.

The Don't Pass Bet
This is the opposite of the pass bet. This bet is placed against the shooter and wins if craps (2, 3 or 12) is thrown on the come-out roll or if the shooter fails to make the point. If a 12 is thrown, the bet ties.

The Come Bet
This bet is similar to the pass bet but cannot be made on the come-out roll. Traditionally the Come and Don"t Come bets are available to allow players just joining the table to take part in the action immediately, instead of having to wait for the shooter to make or miss the point!

The Don't Come Bet
Again, this bet is similar to the "Don't Pass" bet, but can not be made on the come-out roll.

Odds Bet
This is an additional bet made on a Pass, Don't Pass, Come or Don't Come bet that has already been placed. 'Odds' bets can only be made once the point has been established. The advantage of an Odds bet is that it is paid out at the correct odds.

Win Bet

This bet can be made on the following numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10. It is a bet that the relevant number will be rolled BEFORE a seven is rolled.

Lose Bet
This bet can be made on the following numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10. It is a bet that a seven will be rolled BEFORE the relevant number comes up.

Field Bet

This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays even money if a 3, 4, 9, 10 or 11 are rolled and pays 2 to 1 if a 2 or 12 are rolled.

Hardways Bet
This bet can be made on a 4, 6, 8 or 10. It is a bet that the relevant number will be rolled in its double form (i.e. 2 dice showing 4 would be HARDWAY 8) BEFORE a seven AND before that number is rolled in any other combination.

Any Seven
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays 5 for 1 (4 to 1) if a seven is rolled in the next throw.

Any Craps
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays 8 for 1 (7 to 1) if a 2, 3 or 12 is rolled in the next throw.

Craps Two
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays 30 to 1 if a 2 is rolled in the next throw.

Craps Twelve
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays 30 to 1 if a 12 is rolled in the next throw.

Craps Three
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays 15 to 1 if a 3 is rolled in the next throw.

Eleven
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays 15 to 1 if an 11 is rolled in the next throw.

Horn
This is a single roll bet on any craps (2, 3 or 12) and 11. Odds are paid out accordingly.

Big 6 and Big 8

These are a bet that the appropriate number (6 or 8) will be rolled before the next seven. It pays even money.

Understanding Odds

Odds can be expressed in many ways. The most common way of expressing odds is as 'something to something'. 2-1 is read as '2 to 1' and means that for every 1 credit bet, 2 credits of profit will be returned with the original bet if the player wins.

Generally, where the odds are expressed as 'a to b', the total return to the player if he (or she) wins will be a + b where 'a' is the 'profit' and 'b' is the original bet.

Odds are sometimes also expressed as 'a for b'. If this is the case, for every bet of 'b', a TOTAL amount of 'a' will be returned if the player wins (this would include the player's original bet).

Even money refers to odds of 1-1 where the player would receive double their money back if they win.

What's 'ON' on the 'Come Out' Roll?
To limit confusion for novice players, by default ALL bets are 'ON' on the "Come-out" roll. For those players that prefer to have certain bets automatically called off on a "Come-out" roll, they can do so by unchecking the relevant bet on the options menu. It should be noted that all options changed in the Options menu would retain their set state until altered again and will be retained even if the player exits the game.

Bets which are on the table but have been automatically called off will have a large "Off" symbol placed over them on "Come-out" rolls. All bets called "Off" on the come out roll can neither win nor lose on that particular roll.

Refresh
When you start the game the results of the last played game will be shown. If any points had been established then those points will still be on the table.

If you were disconnected before the last roll could be completed then, in most cases, the result of that game will be displayed. Any winnings will already have been added to your credit balance. In some rare circumstances the request from your computer for another game to be played will not have reached the Server before disconnection occurred. Should this have happened the results of the last completed game will be displayed, exactly as if you had never pressed the Roll button.
