Although not too often seen in European casinos the noisiest of all casino games seems to be Craps and this is due to the number of players that can be accommodated around one table; in fact craps tables in land based casinos have two identical ends so that more can play; online craps tables are only half as big as only one end is necessary. Craps is essentially a simple dice game involving nothing more than two dice but the table will at first look quite complicated and indeed there are various bets that can be placed but craps can also be kept quite simple and until you understand how to play craps properly, simple bets are probably the best. The simple bets in online craps are the “pass line” bet and the “don’t pass line” but a single throw of the dice will not necessarily enable the bets to be settled but the following craps rules apply; if the two dice add up to 2 or 3 a “don’t pass line” bet wins and a “pass line” bet loses; if the total thrown is 7 or 11 a “pass Line” bet wins and the “don’t pass line” bet loses; if the total is 12 the “pass line” bet loses but the “don’t pass line” is a push and money is returned. For any other outcome which means 4,5,6,8,9,10 more throws are needed and this is often where it gets noisy. When any of these numbers is thrown it becomes in craps what is known as the “point” and this opens up several more bets which we shall not cover here but feel free to look in our craps page for more detail. Sticking to the simple bets, once a point has been established it is a question of throwing the dice as many times as is necessary to either throw a 7 or a repeat of the point number; if the 7 comes first the “don’t pass line” wins but if the point is thrown first the “pass line” bet wins. Craps is a great online casino dice game and can be very simple to play so try free craps first and then try your luck..
