If you fancy a change from the regular online casino games of roulette and blackjack why not play craps? Craps is a dice game believed to come from as far back as Roman times and although it has what appears to be a very complicated table in the casinos and online casinos of today, that table is no more than an area onto which to place your bets. To play craps all you need is two dice and the game is decided by the total of those two dice which can only be between 2 and 12 which is 11 possible outcomes so how difficult can it be to play craps. The answer to that is that it can be as easy or as difficult to play craps as you wish to make it and we recommend that you read our play craps page under the heading casino table games on this site. Craps in a land based casino is usually associated with a lot of noise and shouting which is caused by anything up to 20 players gathered around the same huge table but online craps is a much quieter affair but all the possible bets are the same. The simplest of bets are the “Pass Line” and “Don’t Pass Line” bets for which there are areas on the table. When you play craps the Pass line bet wins if the roll is 7 or 12 and loses if the roll is 2,3 or 12; any other outcome requires further rolls. Similarly a Don’t Pass line bet wins if the thrown is a 2 or 3, loses on a 7 or an 11 and is a tie on a 12, any other total requires further throws. If further rolls are required when you play craps the number thrown on the first throw becomes what is known as the point and simply put no matter how many further throws are required it is a question of whether a 7 or the point is thrown first; if the point comes up first the Pass Line bet wins and if the 7 comes up first then the Don’t Pass line bet wins. To play craps is actually very simple and well worth a try for a change.
