How to play

Craps is the fast paced and exciting game of dice. All bets are made on numbers that can be rolled with the pair of dice (2-12). There are several types of bets which can be made.  First, you need a “Shooter.”  The Shooter is the person who throws the dice.  Everyone has the opportunity to throw the dice; the turn rotates clockwise around the table. You must have a Pass Line or Don’t Pass bet in order to throw the dice.

PASS LINE : Winning numbers on the first roll are 7 or 11; losing numbers are 2, 3, or 12.  Any other number that comes up on the first roll is your “point.” If you roll your “point” again before 7 is rolled, you win.  If you roll 7 before the “point” you lose and the dice are passed to the next player.

DON’T PASS : When you bet the Don’t Pass, you bet opposite the pass line. You win if 2 or 3 is rolled.  You lose if 7 or 11 is rolled on come out roll.  If a 12 is rolled, it is a “standoff” and no one wins.  Any other number that comes up is the point. You win if 7 is rolled before the point is made. The bet is for
even money.

COME BETS: Bets on Come can be made at any time after the “point” is established. It is the same as betting on the Pass Line. You can make a Come bet for even money on any roll of any shooter.

DON ‘T COME BETS: Bets on Don’t Come are even money and are the reverse of Come bets. The
winning numbers are 2 or 3. You lose on 7 or 11.  A 12 is a “standoff.” You can make a Don’t Come bet on any roll of the dice. Any other number that comes up is the point. You win if 7 is rolled before the particular point number upon which you have placed your bet.

ODDS: Odd are an additional bet that you can make in addition to your Flat Bet. You can take odds once a point has been established. On the Don’t Pass and the Don’t Come you can “Lay” your odds.
These bets can be picked up or reduced at any time.

FIELD BETS: The Field is a one-roll bet that can be placed at any time. Winning numbers are 2, 3, 4, 9,
10, 11 or 12. All but 2 and 12 pay even money; 2 and 12 pay double.

PROPOSITION BETS: Proposition Bets are one roll bets and have the biggest payoffs on the table. These bets are made at the center of the table, and can be made at any time.

HARD WAYS: You win at the odds quoted on the layout (8 for 1, for 4 & 10; and 10 for 1, for 6 & 8) if the exact combination of numbers you bet on comes up. If the number is rolled in any other combination or a 7 comes up, the house wins.  Hopping Hardway bets are paid 30 for 1 if rolled.  All other Hopping bets are paid 15 for 1.

ANY 7: This is a one-roll proposition. You can bet any 7 on any roll of the dice. If a 7 is rolled, you win
5 for 1.

ANY CRAPS: This is a one-roll proposition. If 2, 3 or 12 rolls, you win and are paid 8 for 1.2, 3, 11 or
12 individually: This is a one-roll bet. The winning payoff on 2 or 12 is 30 for 1. The winning payoff on
