Almost certainly one of the oldest casino games in the world is craps and although the exact origins are a little vague it is thought to go back at least to Roman times. The advantage of Craps is that it requires very little equipment; in fact in a basic form no more than two dice and some method to place a bet. In land based casinos there is a large table designed to accept up to around 20 players at the same time but the only purpose of the table is to place a bet and as both ends of the table are identical, you may find in an online casino that the table is half the size. The game is no more than betting on the outcome of the roll of the two dice and as you will realize there 36 ways in which the dice can fall (6×6) but there are only eleven possible outcomes so how complicated can it be? For full details we advise you to go to our craps page here at but the simplest bets to get you started are the “Pass Line” bet and the “Don’t Pass Line” bet. The important thing to remember is that although there 36 possible outcomes of the dice there are only 11 results of the two dice together and not all results are equally likely. For example the total 2 can only be achieved when both dice come up “1” which is therefore a 1 in 36 chance; a total of 7 however can be achieved by 6 different combinations of two dice giving 7 a 1 in 6 chance of coming up. The betting does indeed seem a little complicated in the beginning but if you play free craps for a while you will soon get the hang of it and it then becomes a great fast moving dice game to enjoy..
