Craps is a dice game in which players place bets on the outcome of the roll, or a series of rolls, of a pair of dice. Players take turns rolling the dice. The person rolling the dice is called the “shooter.”
Here is a basic overview of how to play Craps:
- To begin, the shooter places a bet on the “pass” line or the “don’t pass” line. The other players at the table place their bets as well.
- The shooter then rolls the dice. If the total on the dice is 7 or 11, the shooter wins and the round ends. If the total is 2, 3, or 12, the shooter loses and the round ends.
- If the total is any other number, that number becomes the “point.” The shooter continues rolling the dice until they roll the point again (in which case they win) or until they roll a 7 (in which case they lose).
- If the shooter wins, the other players at the table who bet on the pass line also win. If the shooter loses, the other players who bet on the don’t pass line win.
There are many other bets that can be placed in Craps, and the game can be quite complex. It is a good idea for new players to watch a few rounds before jumping in to get a feel for the game.
