Craps

The first roll of the dice in a Craps game is named the “Come Out Roll”. The basic opening bet in Craps, which is made just Prior to the Come Out Roll, is named the “Pass Line Bet.” Pass Line Bets are immediate winners when the shooter’s Come Out Roll is 7 or 11, and lose when the Come Out Roll is 2, 3, or 12. If 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 are rolled on the Come Out Roll, that number becomes “The Point”. “The Puck” shows that The Point has been established, and is located on the Craps table over the box for the number rolled as The Point:
“4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10″.
To end a round of Craps and resolve Pass Line Bets, the shooter must roll either the Point or 7 after the Come Out Roll. The possibility exists for a Craps game to continue all night, if the shooter fails to roll the Point or a 7 Prior to the sun rises. Pass Line Bets cannot win until the Point is rolled, and cannot lose until a 7 is rolled. Because unresolved Pass Line Bets may not be removed, gamesters must wait for a roll of the Point or 7 to determine the outcome of their Pass Line Bets.

The Different Bets:

Prior to the dice are rolled, bets can be made in various fields of the Craps Table. First, using your left mouse button, click on the value of the chip you wish to wager. Next, place the chip in the desired betting area on the Craps Table by clicking in the area, using your left mouse button again. Should you wish to alter or remove a bet, click on your wagered chips with your right mouse button. Please note that some bets may not be removed.
When you have finish placing your bets, click on the “ROLL” button to roll the dice.

Pass Line Bets:

A “Pass Line Bet” is made in the area labelled “PASS LINE,” Prior to the Come Out Roll. A wager on the Pass Line wins if the Come Out Roll is 7 or 11, and loses if 2, 3 or 12 is rolled. If 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 are rolled, that number becomes “The Point.” To win a Pass Line Bet, the shooter must roll The Point again Prior to rolling a 7. If the shooter rolls a 7 Prior to rolling The Point again, your Pass Line Bet loses. A winning Pass Line Bet pays even money.
When The Point has been established, unresolved Pass Line Bets may not be removed or reduced. Pass Line Bets must be resolved by a roll of The Point or a 7.

Don’t Pass Line Bets:

A “Don’t Pass Line Bet” is essentially the reverse of a Pass Line Bet, and is made on the Craps Table in the “DON’T PASS BAR” area, Prior to the Come Out Roll. If the shooter rolls 2 or 3 on the Come Out Roll, a Don’t Pass Line Bet wins. However, if the Come Out Roll is 7 or 11, all Don’t Pass Line Bets lose. If the Come Out Roll is 12, Don’t Pass Line Bets are returned to the player, in a Push. If the Come Out Roll is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, that number becomes The Point.
When The Point has been established, Don’t Pass Line Bet win if the shooter rolls a 7 Prior to rolling The Point again. If the shooter rolls The Point again, Prior to rolling a 7, Don’t Pass Line Bets lose. A winning Don’t Pass Line Bet pays even money. Unlike Pass Line Bets, unresolved Don’t Pass Line Bets may be removed or reduced. To remove this bet click the right mouse button on the chips. If you have made an Odds Bet as well, a single right button click will remove the Odds Bet, and an additional click will remove the Don’t Pass Line Bet.

Come Bets:

A “Come Bet” is made in the “COME” bar area, Prior to any roll of the dice, When The Point has been established by the Come Out Roll. The rules for Come Bets are essentially the same as Pass Line Bets. Come Bets win if the shooter’s next roll is 7 or 11, and lose if the roll is 2, 3, or 12. If the shooter rolls 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, that number becomes “The Come Point,” and the dealer will move the Come Bet from the “COME” bar to the box corresponding to the established Come Point:
“4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10″. If the shooter rolls the Come Point again, Prior to rolling a 7, the Come Bet pays even money. The Come Bet will stay in place until the come point, or a 7 is rolled. Similarly to the Pass Line Bet, unresolved Come Bets may not be removed or reduced. They must be resolved by a roll of the come point or a 7.

Don’t Come Bets:

A “Don’t Come Bet” is essentially the opposite of a Come Bet, which is made after the Come Out Roll in the “DON’T COME” bar area. Don’t Come Bets win when the shooter’s next roll is 2 or 3, and lose if the roll is 7 or 11. If the shooter rolls a 12, the bet will be returned to the player in a Push. If the roll is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, that number becomes “The Come Point,” and the dealer will move the Don’t Come Bet from the “Don’t Come Bar” to the left corner of the narrow, uppermost bar over the box corresponding to the Come Point:
“4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10″. After the Come Point is established, Don’t Come Bets win even money if 7 is rolled, and lose if the Come Point is rolled. Don’t Come Bets will stay in place until the Come Point, or a 7 is rolled. However, unresolved Don’t Come Bets may be removed.

Odds Bets:

An “Odds Bet” is a “Back Up” bet on an original Pass Line Bet, Don’t Pass Line Bet, Come Bet, or Don’t Come Bet. The maximum Odds Bet is 3.6 times your original bet on numbers 6 and 8, 4.5 times your original bet on numbers 5 and 9 and 6 times your original bet on numbers 4 and 10.

Pass Line Odds Bets:

4 to 5 on numbers 6 and 8, 5 to 8 on numbers 5 and 9, and 5 to 11 on numbers 4 and 10.

Buy Bets:

A "Buy Bet" is a bet that either 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 will be
rolled Prior to 7. A Buy Bet is made in the box corresponding to the number on the Craps Table:
“4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10″. A Vigorish of 5% is charged on your profit from this bet. Buy Bet winnings are then paid at true odds:

Lay Bets:

A "Lay Bet" is essentially the reverse of a Buy Bet. A Lay Bet
is a bet that 7 will be rolled Prior to 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. The
Lay Bet is made in the top bar, above the box corresponding to the number on the Craps Table:
“4, 5, six, 8, nine, or 10″. A Vigorish of 5% is charged on your profit from this bet. Lay Bet winnings are then paid at true odds:
5 to 6 on numbers 6 and 8, 2 to 3 on numbers 5 and 9, and 1 to 2 on numbers 4 and 10. Unresolved Lay Bets may be removed.

Any 7 Bets:

An “Any 7 Bet” is a bet that the next roll of the dice will be a 7. It is made on any roll of the dice, in the “SEVEN” field, on the craps table. If 7 is rolled, you win 4 times your bet.

Any Craps Bets:

An “Any Craps Bet” is a bet that the next roll of the dice will be 2, 3, or 12. It is made on any roll of the dice, in the “ANY CRAPS” field on the craps table. If 2, 3, or 12 is rolled, you win 7 times your bet.

Horn Bets:

The “Horn Bet” is a one roll bet, by which you are betting that 2, 3, 11 or 12 will appear on the next roll of the dice. This bet box is made in the center of the “one roll” layout.

There are two ways to place a Horn Bet. You may bet on each specific number individually, or on the group of four numbers as a whole.

To place a bet on a specific number, place your bet in either the 2, 3, 11 or 12 box. The odds for each number being rolled are clearly marked in each box. Meaning that if you bet on number 2 being rolled next, and win, you will receive the marked odds of 30 for 1, meaning your bet multiplied by 30.

To place a bet on the Horn group as a whole, place your bet in the “Horn Bet” box, located in the center of the Horn numbers. If one of the Horn numbers is rolled next, you will receive the marked odds for the number rolled, minus 3/4 of the return amount. Meaning that if you place a bet in the “Horn Bet” box, and either 2 or 12 is rolled, you will receive the marked odds of 31 for 1, minus 3/4 of the amount; If either 3 or 11 is rolled, you will receive the marked odds of 16 for 1, minus 3/4 of the amount.

Hardway Bets::

A “Hardway Bet” is a bet that the shooter will roll either a 4, 6, 8, or 10 as doubles Prior to rolling a 7. The Hardway Bet is made in the box on the Craps Table containing the two illustrated dice corresponding to the number. Rolling a number by doubles is said to be rolling the number “The Hard Way.” For example, a roll of 4+4 is named a “Hard 8,” while a roll of 5+3 or 6+2 is named an “Easy 8.” A winning Hardway Bet pays 8 for 1 on numbers 4 and 10 and 10 for 1 on numbers 6 and 8. If you roll an “Easy” Prior to rolling a “Hard” you lose your bet. Unresolved Hardway Bets may be removed.
