Craps is believed to be an intriguing and captivating pastime, which popularity grows from day to day. It is played with 2 dice, which have numbers from 1 to 6. It is interesting to know that there 36 possible combinations, which can appear after a roll, but, indeed, they do not have the similar chance to roll out.

Craps Rules

First of all, before starting a game, players should put a stake. At this stage of the game their option is restricted. They can make either "Pass Line" or "Don't Pass Line" bets.

Afterwards, the shooter, a person, who is the first to lead, throws dice. If a 7 or 11 rolls out, it means that all "Pass Line" win but all "Don't Pass Line" lose. When a 2, 3 or 12 appear after the shooter's roll, all "Don't Pass Line" bets are supposed to win and all "Pass Line" lose. If any other number appears after "come-out roll", it is determined as the "point" for this round. If the latter is the case, the game becomes more intriguing.

After the First Roll

If the shooter in the initial round rolls out the "point" number (a five, six, seven, eight, nine or ten) the game continues. Now, he should get the same number once more. If he does it, he wins and continues rolling. If a seven comes out before the "point" number, a new shooter starts a new round.

End of the Shooting Round

It should be mentioned that "Come/Don't Come" bet can be put at this stage of the game. In fact, it is very similar to "Pass/Don't Pass" bet. Here is an example of a "come" bet:

Shooter A rolls out a point of five.

Player B puts a "come" bet.

Shooter A does not roll out a point. He loses.

Player B gets his "come" number. He wins.

Pay attention to the fact that player B can bet against the shooter as well.
