Although craps is very popular in casinos in the USA it has never really taken off in online casinos due to the apparent complexity but at the end of the day, there are only two dice used so how complex can craps be? The answer is that it can be simple or you can make it more complicated by placing successive bets as play progresses. Craps is often associated with a lot of noise and that is because it sometimes takes several throws of the dice to conclude a game and the longer it takes the more excited people tend to get. Online craps is of course a little bit different but the rules of the game are the same and it can be just as exciting even if you stick to the simple bets. These simple bets are the “Pass Line” and “Don’t Pass Line” bets and craps can be played using nothing other than these bets if you so wish. If the total of the two dice thrown is 7 or 11 the pass line bets win and the don’t pass line bet loses; if the total of the craps dice is 2 or 3 the reverse is true with the don’t pass line winning and the pass line bet losing. If the total of the two craps dice is 12 the pass line bet loses but the don’t pass line bet is a push. Only when one of these 5 numbers is thrown is the game over, if anything else is thrown then the craps game progresses to the next level and although there are additional bets that can be made at this stage your original bets are still valid and in the game. In very simple terms whatever number was thrown with the two craps dice is called “the point” and the winner is decided by subsequent throws and whether the number represented by the point is repeated before a seven is thrown. If a seven comes first then the don’t pass line bet wins but if the point number comes first then the pass line bet wins. Online craps really need be no more difficult than that so give it a go..
