A favourite American casino game seen virtually everywhere in the casino is Craps and now you too can play at most of the online casinos available to Irish casino players. If you have ever seen a craps table in an actual casino you will know that it is quite large with high side walls to accommodate the throwing of the dice from one end to the other but what you may not have realised is that the table is double ended having a duplicate betting area at both ends which accommodates many more players although of course only one player can actually throw the dice at any one time. Online casino craps is slightly different in that only one end of the table is shown and of course the dice are not actually thrown but the result determined by an RNG (random number generator) but all the possible betting opportunities are still there. To play craps at an online casino you need to know how to place bets and the craps table can at first seem quite daunting but there are a couple of simple bets which can get you started which are known as the “pass line” bet and the “don’t pass line” bet which you can find clearly labelled on the table. As there are only two dice in play, the outcome, which is the sum of the two dice, is limited to 11 possibilities (2 to 12) and within that there are certain numbers (2,3,11 and 12) where only one combination of numbers will give a result whereas for 6,7 and 8 there are three possible combinations of numbers, it therefore follows that a 6,7 or 8 result is more likely than a 2,3 or 12 result. The best way to start to play craps is by reading the page on craps here at casinos.ie and then start with these simple bets. You will soon get the hang of things and it can be quite exciting as the game progresses.
