Thanks to the movie industry the dice game of craps is associated with a lot of shouting of strange terms such as snake eyes and indeed in a land based casino the tables are large enough to accommodate a large number of players as well as spectators. The craps table in a casino is large to enable a good throw of the dice but each end is a duplicate of the other so that when you play craps online you will only see what appears to be one half of the table but it is actually complete. Despite the noise and reputation craps is a fairly simple game and only utilizes two dice and the various bets are on their outcome; the person who throws the dice is known as the shooter but in online craps this is automated and controlled by an RNG. The game of craps is also full of jargon which you do not need to know to play craps so for example the first throw of the dice is known as the “come out” and the two most simple bets are the “pass line” bet and the “don’t pass line” bet but whatever they are called all you are doing is betting on the outcome of the two dice. With two dice in play there are only 11 possible outcomes of the throw of which 5 have a definitive outcome and the other 6 require further throws to determine the outcome. The 5 numbers that have an instant result are 2 and 3 in which case any bet on the don’t pass line wins, 7 and 11 in which case all craps bets on the pass line win and conversely don’t pass line bets lose and finally 12 which results in pass line bets losing and don’t pass line bets being returned. Any other outcome in craps will require further throws to find the winner. Craps is a great game and not as complicated as it at first may seem, read the rules of craps at your chosen online casino and play craps for free for a few rounds and you should soon get the hang of it..
