Craps is fast-paced and many consider it the most exciting casino game. Craps provides many different types of bets.
The shooter must make a fair attempt to reach and hit the opposite end of the table when shooting. Setting of the dice for the purpose of delaying the game is prohibited. Floor Supervisor decisions regarding rules and play are final.
Winning numbers on the first roll (Come out roll) are 7 or 11 and losing numbers are 2, 3, or 12. Any other number establishes the point. If the point rolls again the players win the Pass Line, and if a 7 rolls before the point, players lose and the dice are passed to the next player.
DON’T PASS LINE
The winning numbers on the Come out are opposite of the Pass Line— players win on 2 or 3, lose on 7 or 11, and push on 12. Any other number establishes the point. Players win the Don’t Pass Line if 7 rolls before the point is made. On any 7 out the dice are passed to the next player.
Players may make Come bets any time after the point is established, and they are the same as betting on the Pass Line.
Players may make Don’t Come bets any time after the point is established, and they are the same as betting on the Don’t Pass Line.
Players may make an optional wager called odds on the Pass Line or on Come bets. If 6 or 8 rolls, odds pay 6 to 5; if 5 or 9 rolls, odds pay 3 to 2 and if 4 or 10 roll, odds pay 2 to 1. Players may make an optional wager called Lay odds on the Don’t Pass Line, or on Don’t Come bets. If a 6 or 8 rolls, the player must lay 6 to win 5; if a 5 or 9 rolls, the player must lay 3 to win 2 and if a 4 or 10 roll, a player must lay 2 to win 1.
Players may make optional wagers called Place Bets. If a 6 or 8 rolls, Place odds pay 7 to 6; if 5 or 9 rolls, Place odds pay 7 to 5 and if 4 or 10 rolls, Place odds pay 9 to 5.
BUY BETS AND BUY LAY BETS
Buy and Buy Lay bets pay odds without requiring a flat bet and may be made directly on a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 at any time without waiting for the number to roll the first time. There is a 5% commission on the amount of a Buy bet placed, and a 5% commission on the total amount won on a Buy Lay bet. The Buy bet wins if the number bet is rolled before a 7. The Buy Lay bet wins if a 7 rolls before the number bet on. In either case, the wager is paid according to true odds as listed above in the Odds section.
BIG 6 AND 8
You win if a 6 or 8 is rolled before a 7. The bet is for even money and can be placed or removed at any time and is a self-service bet.
The Field is a one-roll bet that can be placed at any time and is a self- service bet. 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 are made at any time, are all one roll wagers excluding Hard Ways, and must be booked with a Base dealer or Stick person. Proposition bets are bets made on the individual numbers 7, 11, 2, 3, and 12, or various combinations of these numbers, including the Hardways, 4, 6, 8, and 10. The Natural numbers 7, 11, 2, 3 and 12 win or lose on the next roll of the dice—a one roll bet. A roll of 2 or 12 pays 30 to 1; 3 or 11 pays 15 to 1, and 7 pays 4 to 1. The Hard Ways win if the number is rolled as a pair, and lose if rolled any other way—easy—or if a 7 rolls. The Hard 4 and 10 pay 7 to 1; the Hard 6 and 8 pay 9 to 1.
Hopping Hardways pay 30 to 1 and are a one roll bet. Side wagers are prohibited.
In case of improper roll all bets are called dead or no roll, and bets returned to the player.
If a bet is over the table maximum the bet is honored up to the table maximum and the overage returned to the player.
If a player fails to meet the table minimum the floor supervisor will be notified and the bet will be honored while the floor person explains table minimums. If it happens again the bet will be called dead and the bet returned to the player.
