One of the oldest casino games that exists is craps. Almost all online casinos offer craps games. It is said that craps originated in England in the eleventh or twelfth century. Thus, together with Blackjack, it is probably the oldest game that you can play in most casinos.

Dice and games have been around for hundreds of years, so the exact origin of Craps is hard to come by
track down. It is generally assumed that the game is based on the English dice game Hazard, which was played during the crusades. Later, the game was influenced by French gamblers who had added and modified some rules. It was a French settler who introduced the game in New Orleans, where the game got the shape that we still play today.

Craps is a game that can be played with several players at the table. How simple or difficult the game is depends on the way you play it and the level of the bet. Craps is a simple game, full of excitement and sensation. You do not have to know all the rules to start playing. It is sufficient to learn the basics of the game. Craps is played with 2 dice. The intention is to guess which numbers are thrown. As a player you bet against the bank. You can win or lose this bet.

The beginning of Craps

One player throws the dice and is called the ‘shooter’, but before the shooter throws the other players bet on the numbers that are thrown.

The players then bet pass line bet for this (on the first roll). The first roll is called the come out roll. When the come out roll comes out at 7 or 11, the player immediately wins a pass line bet. If the outcome is 2, 3 or 12, then we call the outcome Craps and then the players with a pass line bet have immediately lost. At the other numbers we call the point. With the come out roll it is all about making a point that is marked on the Craps table. The shooter must roll to win until the number appears as a point or until the seven is rolled. Is point thrown first? Then all pass line bets win, is the seven first rolled? Then all pass line bets are lost.

Game of Craps

The basic bets of Craps are described here:

Do not Come Bets

The opposite of a come bet is the “do not come bet”. You make such a bet by placing chips on the “Do not come bar”, before the first roll is rolled. When you throw a 2 or a 3 at the opening throw, you win. When you roll a 7 or a 11 you lose. When twelve is thrown, it is a tie and you get the bet back. This is also called “push”. With the remaining numbers the throw becomes the “come point” again. Once the come point is known, then after throwing a 7, a do not come point will win before the come point is rolled again. When the come point for a 7 is rolled, you lose your bet. In contrast to a come bet, a do not come bet may be changed or removed. A do not come bet also doubles.

Do not Pass Line Bets

The opposite of a pass line bet is the “do not pass line bet”. You make this bet before the opening throw is thrown by placing your chips on “Do not pass line”. You win when you throw 2 or 3 at the opening throw and you lose when you roll a 7 or an 11. When you roll 12 it is a draw, after which you get the bet back. This is called “Push”. With the other throws, the throw again becomes the point number. Once the point number is known, a do not pass line bet wins after throwing a 7 before the point number is rolled again. You lose your bet when the point number is rolled before a 7. A do not pass line bet is paid out twice and unlike a pass line bet, a do not pass line bet can be changed or removed.

Place Bets

We can distinguish two types of “place bets”. A place bet assumes that before the 7 is rolled, a 4,5,6,8,9 or 10 is thrown. The place bet is placed under the square of the “4,5, SIX, 8, NINE or 10”. A winning place bet is paid in the following way: 7 against 6 on the numbers 6 and 8. 7 against 5 on the numbers 5 and 9, and 9 against 5 on the numbers 4 and 10.
With a “place lose bet”, it is assumed that a 7 is thrown before the 4,5,6,8,9 or 10 is rolled. The place lose bet is placed at the top of the box of the “4,5, SIX, 8, NINE or 10”. The winning place lose bets are paid in the following way: 4 against 5 on the numbers 6 and 8. 5 against 8 on the numbers 5 and 9, and 5 against 11 on the numbers 4 and 10.

Do not Pass Line Odds Bets

A “do not pass line odds bet” is made when the point number is known. This is done by clicking with the left mouse button outside the “pass line” field. This field is below the original “Do not Pass” field. The do not pass line odds bet paid out in the following way: 1 against 2 when a 4 or a 10 is rolled. 2 to 3 if a 5 or a 9 is rolled and 5 to 6 if a 6 or an 8 is rolled. An unfinished do not pass line odds bet may be removed. However, if you click with your right mouse button to remove the bet, you also delete the original do not pass line bet. So pay attention to this.

Come Odds Bets

Also the “come odds bet” is made after the point number is known. This bet is made by clicking with the left mouse button under the come bet number where the come bet is placed. A winning come bet is paid out as follows: 2 against 1 if a 4 or a 10 is rolled. 3 against 2 if a 5 or a 9 is rolled and 6 against 5 if a 6 or an 8 is rolled. The use of a come odds bet may be changed, in contrast to the original come bet. Come odds bets are not valid on the first roll and remain until the next roll.

Do not Come Odds Bets

A do not come odds bet is made on your do not come bet after the come point is known. You do this by clicking with the left mouse button in small area, directly under your do not come bet, where you do not come bet is placed: 4,5, SIX, 8, NINE or 10. A winning do not come bet is paid in the following way: 1 against 3 if a 4 or a 10 is rolled, 2 against 3 if a 5 or a 9 is rolled and 5 against 6 if a 6 or an 8 is rolled. The use of a do not come bet may be changed, in contrast to the original come bet.

Field Bets

With a “field bet” it is assumed that the next roll is a: 2,3,4,9,10,11 or 12. This bet is placed on the Craps table in the “FIELD” box and this happens before it is thrown. When a 3,4,9,10 or 11 is rolled, double payment will be made. The bet is paid 2 times when a 2 or a 12 is rolled (2-1). The bet is lost if a 5,6,7 or 8 is thrown.

Big 6 and Big 8 Bets

With a “big 6 bet” it is assumed that a 6 is thrown before the 7 is rolled. With a “big 8 bet” it is assumed that first an 8 is thrown before the 7 is thrown. Left on the crap table are the big 6 and big 8 fields. There is a double payout on winnings and the bet may be changed after each throw.

Pass Line Odss Bets

A pass line odds bet is made if the point number is known. You can do this by pressing the left mouse button outside the box: “pass line” (under the standard “pass line bet”) A pass line bet pays out as follows: 2 against 1, if 4 or 10 is rolled. 3 against 2 when 5 or 9 is rolled and 6 against 5 when 6 or 8 is thrown in. The bet of a pass line odds bet may be changed, in contrast to an original pass line bet.

Buy Bets

With a “buy bet” it is assumed that a 4,5,6,8,9 or 10 is thrown before the 7 is rolled. This buy bet is placed in the box corresponding to the number to be rolled: “4,5, SIX, 8, NINE or 10.” With the mouse, “BUY” will light up when you place the bet. In this way it can be distinguished from the come bet. With a buy bet, a surcharge of 5% will be charged on your bet. The payout is made as follows: 6 against 5 for the numbers 6 and 8. 3 against 2 for the numbers 5 and 9. 2 against 1 for the numbers 4 and 10. You get the 5% surcharge if you change or lose your bet. . Buy bets are not valid at the opening election.

Lay Bets

The opposite of a buy bet is a “lay bet”. With the lay bet, a 7 must be rolled before the 4,5,6,8,9 or 10 is rolled. This bet is placed at the top of the box that corresponds to the number to be rolled: “4,5, SIX, 8, NINE or 10”. When the bet is placed, the text “LAY” will light up to distinguish it from a do not come bet. In case of a lay bet, a surcharge of 5% will be charged on your bet. The payout is as follows: 6 against 5 for the numbers 6 and 8. 3 against 2 for the numbers 5 and 9. 2 against 1 for the numbers 4 and 10. You get the 5% surcharge when you change or lose your bet. . Lay bets are not valid at the opening elbow.

Come Bets

A “come bet” must be placed in the “Come” box before thrown. The same rules apply for a come bet as for a pass line bet. You win at 7 or 11 and you lose at a 2.3 or a 12. At the other numbers: 4,5,6,8,9 or 10, the number becomes the “come point” and the dealer will move the come bet to the come point: 4.5, SIX, 8, NINE or 10. If the player throws the come point again for the 7, the bet is doubled on the come point. The come bet remains valid until the moment that the come point is rolled, or a 7 is rolled. These may not be changed as with a pass line bet.

Any 11 Bets

With the “any 11 bet” it is assumed that the next roll is an 11. This bet is placed in the box with the two dice: 6 and 5. The mouse will show “eleven one-roll”. You will be paid 15 times when 11 is actually thrown.

Any 7 Bets

With the “any 7 bet” it is assumed that the next roll is a 7. The name of course already suggests this. This bet is placed on the 7-field of the table. When a 7 is rolled, you win the bet 4 times.

Horn Bets

With a “horn bet” it is assumed that the next roll is a 2,3,11 or 12. This bet is placed in the “HORN” field. In the case of a win, numbers 3 and 11 are added; Paid 15 times. 30 points are paid out on the numbers 2 and 12.

Pass Line Bets

When you place chips on the field: “Passline”, you make a “pass line bet”. You do this before the opening throw is thrown. If a 7 or an 11 is rolled at the opening, you win. You lose when 2.3 or 12 is rolled. With the other throws, this number becomes the point number. To win the pass line bet you must first throw the point number before you roll 7. When you first roll a 7 before you have rolled the point number again, you lose. The bet is doubled when you win a pass line bet.

Hardway Bets

With a “hardway bet” it is assumed that a 4,6,8 or 10 is doubled (2 + 2, 3 + 3, 4 + 4 or 5 + 5). This must be done before a 7 is rolled. The bet is placed on one of the double die fields. It is difficult to double throw with dice, so this is called hard way. 4 + 4 is called the “hard8”, while 6 + 2 or 5 + 3 is called the “easy 8”. A winning hard way paid on the numbers: 4 and 10, 7 times the bet. The bet is paid 9 times on the numbers 6 and 8. It is possible to change the bet of a hard way bet.

Odds bets
