Online Casinos Craps Rules Guide

Basics rules

Have you decided to learn how to play Craps? Good. Here we are going to teach you everything you need to know, and there's a lot to know with online casinos Craps rules.

Craps games are played on a special table and with two dice. Craps rules limit the number of players to 20, who each get a turn to shoot the dice.

The first roll of dice is called the come out roll. This roll is made when the previous shooter fails to make the winning roll.

Now we will do something amazing, we will cover 90% of all you need to know about Craps rules in a bit more than five sentences:

  • If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11, then he wins and the betting round is done.
  • If he rolls a 2,3 or 12, it is called Craps, the shooter loses, and the round is done.
  • If any other number turns up, then that number is marked as the "point". This can be 4/5/6/8/9/10.
  • If the point is rolled again, then the shooter wins. If the 7 rolls, the shooter loses. Otherwise, the shooter shoots again.

Remember this Craps rule, that has remained true throughout Craps history : Before the point is made - 7 wins you the game, after the point is made - 7 makes you lose.

The other player apart from the shooter can either bet for the shooter, then the same Craps rules we've just described apply to them, or bet against the shooter.

Online Casinos Craps Betting Options

Pass line bets - This is the most common and basic bet in Craps. This bet supports the shooter, and this is why it's called a right bet. The pass line bet wins on the Come Out roll if the dice rolls 7 or 11. After the point is made the bet wins if the point is rolled again. The bet loses if the come out roll shoots 2/3/12, or if the roll after is 7.

Don't Pass bets

The Don't Pass line is the opposite of a Pass line bet. You're basically betting against the shooter, which is the reason it's called a wrong bet. The bet wins on the Come Out roll if the shooter rolls Craps (2, 3 or 12), and after the point it wins with 7. The bet loses if the come out roll is 7/11, or if the shooter rolls the point twice.

Come/Don't Come Bets

These bets are practically the same as the pass and don't pass bets, only they are placed while the round is already in progress. The come bet wins the same as the pass line, and the don’t come wins the same as the don’t pass.

Odds bets

Online casinos odds bets are placed as an addition to the previously described bets (pass/don’t pass/come/don’t come bets). Odds bets are usually limited to X2 or X3 or the original bet, and it is the most worth while bet there is in all of the online casinos bets! Yes, you heard me… This is because the payoff reflects the right probability of the dice roll, without any house bet. This is the reason they are called odds bets, and is also the reason why Craps is one of the most popular online casinos.

Does this mean you should place the odds bet whenever you can? Yes, absolutely. This bet is the case where the saying "the house always wins" is false. You have the same possibility for winning as the online casinos.

The bets we've just described are the most profitable in the game, and you shouldn’t place bets on any other bet, because it wouldn’t be worth while.
