Do You Play Craps?

Aug 17, 2007
Remember some Hollywood movies, where you see a guy standing at the edge of a casino table, with a very sexy lady beside him, and the guy rolling two dices on the table, and betting on the results? Well, just to give you a visual image of this game, that my friend is the game of craps. This game is highly popular in United States, especially since it is a dare all game, where all can be players will roll the dice and base everything on luck and chance. So maybe that is why it is the hallmark of Las Vegas based movies

The rule in playing craps is very simple. In a casino, there will be four members of the staff for each craps table. Two of them are base dealers, the ones who give and collect the bets from the player. One is called the boxman, responsible for watching over the chips and managing the dealers and another is called the stickman, who is positioned opposite the boxman, and is responsible for calling out the results for each roll and collecting the dices that were thrown with a wooden stick.

Each of the players line up for a chance to roll the dice. A player, sometimes called a shooter, makes a bet on a roll, and the first roll is called come out roll. The bets are made against the amounts of the two dices that were rolled. You can either choose to roll one dice first, or you can have the option of making the dices hit the sides of the table. Tossing the dices is not an option, since this increases the chance of cheating on the part of the players.

There are two kinds of bets that are popular in a craps game. One is called the pass line bet, and the other is the do not pass bet. Those who use the pass line are called right bettors, and the do not pass users are called the wrong bettors.

When using the pass line bet, remember that you are betting for a total of 11 or a 7 for each roll. When you roll a 2, a 3 or a 12, you lose the game. But when you roll other numbers, you get what is called a point. If you get a point and bet on a pass line, you will win if the roll is a point, but make sure that you do not roll a 7 after the point, for you will lose. Rolling of a 7 is called seven out.

The do not pass is the opposite of the pass line bet. The player will bet that he will roll a 2 or a 3, and will win if you roll it. If you roll a 7 or an 11, you will lose.

This game is all very simple, but you have to have luck on your side to win. You leave everything to chance, and if you rolled the right amount, you win.
