It is sometimes surprising how complicated a casino game such as craps can be made when at the end of the day it is all about two dice being thrown. At an online casino craps seems to be a much simpler casino game than that which can be played in a land based casino but in actual fact they are the same game but of course in a land based casino there are a lot of people playing at the same time and shouting, plus the craps table is twice the size of that used at online casinos but that is only to accommodate so many players and in fact it has two identical ends. What makes it difficult to play online craps is the number of different bets that can placed at various times during the game and what makes it exciting is that more often than not the craps game takes more than one throw of the dice to settle it and the longer it takes the more the tension rises. In fact online craps is only settled with one throw of the dice if the sum of both dice is 2,3,7,11 or 12 and when you consider that 2 and 12 can only be achieved in one way and even 3 and 11 can only be achieved in one way as well you can easily see why online craps more often than not goes to additional throws. Online casinos usually have a full description of how to play craps but if you would like to try your luck at craps without reading too much then simply play the “pass line” bet or the “don’t pass line” bet. You can happily play these bets at online craps with very little knowledge and the online casino will let you known if you have won or not but it is worth reading about these two bets to aid your enjoyment. Online craps is great fun.
