The first of the craps rules is that the game be played with 2 dices and
up to 8 players. In real casinos you will often experience that the
craps tables are the most crowded tables in the casino. The constant
action makes craps one of the most exciting games in the casino. The
same applies for online craps. Here are some general craps rules.
General craps rules:
Every game of online craps consists of a series of rolls with the
dices. The player currently rolling the dices is called the shooter
and he continues rolling as long as he is winning. The first roll
in each game is called the come out roll. The shooter wins if the
come out roll is 7 or 11 and loses if gets craps (2,3 or 12). If he
gets 4,5,6,8,9 or 10 this number is established as the point. If he
obtains the point again before 7 is rolled he wins. If he rolls 7
before the point he loses and the player to his left is handled the
dices and becomes the next shooter.
When the shooter establishes the point the puck is placed on the corresponding
field with its white side showing. It remains here until the shooter
either obtains his point or rolls 7 after which the puck is placed
- with the black side showing - on the field marked with 12. The reason
behind this is that everyone easily can follow the game: - White side
up: The game is ongoing and the placement of the puck indicates the
point. - Black side up: The next roll will be the come out roll (which
means that a new game is about to begin).
Another of the craps rules states that the first roll of the dice
in a craps round is called the "come out roll." The basic opening
bet in craps, placed just before the come out roll, is called the
"pass line bet." Pass line bets immediately win when the shooter's
come out roll is 7 or 11, and lose when the come out roll is 2 (snake
eyes), 3 (cross eyes), or 12 (box cars).
If 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 is rolled on the come out roll, that number
becomes "the point." The puck labeled "ON" shows that the point has
been established, and is located on the craps table over the box for
the number rolled as the point: "4, 5, SIX, 8, NINE, or 10". The shooter
now keeps rolling the dice until he rolls the point or 7 to end the
round. If the shooter rolls the point first, a pass line bet wins.
If, however, the shooter rolls a 7 first (i.e. "sevens out"), a pass
line bet loses.
There are numerous ways to make a bet in online craps. Everybody around
the table is allowed to make bets (not just the shooter) and you can
combine the different bets. There are a few more craps rules but those
mentioned above are the most basic and important ones. There is more
