Craps has become a hugely popular game thanks to its very simple premise, all you are doing is betting on the outcome of the roll of two standard dice.
Over the years two distinct forms of Craps have developed, there is ‘Street Craps’, which you can play at home and bet against your friends, and there is ‘Casino Craps’, in which you are betting against the casino.
While Craps has a very simple premise, the game has a fair amount of rules that you should take the time to learn before playing. Furthermore, there are many different types of bets beyond the basic total of the dice.
The first roll of the dice is called the ‘Come Out Roll’. If there is a total of 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, then the point is established, any other total on the Come Out Roll ends the round. If the point is established an ‘On’ puck is placed on it, on the betting area. After the point has been established then the dice are rolled continuously until the same point is rolled again, or a 7 is rolled.
It is at this point that you can start to make use of all the other betting options and by using them together, you can build an advanced betting strategy that will hopefully result in piles of winnings.
As mentioned, there are many different types of bet, and at first glance, the betting area may appear to be a bit daunting. However, you should not let this put you off. It won’t take long to read a tutorial online, or through the game rules, and it really is not that complicated. You will soon understand exactly how the game works and can start playing straightaway.
You will have probably seen films in which people are crowding around the Craps table and wishing the players luck. There is a reason for this; it is an extremely exciting game to watch, and even more exciting to play.
If you are yet to experience the excitement of Craps then start rolling the dice today and you are sure to have a fantastic time.
