  1. Understand the Basic Rules:

Craps are typically played at a large table with multiple betting options.
Players take turns being the “shooter,” who rolls the dice.

  1. Place Bets:

Before the shooter rolls the dice, players place their bets on the roll’s outcome.

You can make various bets, each with its odds and payouts. Here are some common ones:

a. Pass Line Bet: This is one of the most basic bets. You win if the come-out roll (the first roll of a new round) is a 7 or 11 and lose if it’s a 2, 3, or 12. Any other number becomes the “point,” the shooter continues rolling until they hit the point again or roll a 7.

b. Don’t Pass Bet: The opposite of the Pass Line bet. You win if the come-out roll is a 2 or 3, and lose if it’s a 7 or 11. A 12 is usually a push (neither a win nor a loss). If a point is established, you’re betting that the shooter will roll a 7 before hitting the point again.

c. Come Bet: Similar to the Pass Line bet it can be placed after the point is established. It wins on a 7 or 11 and loses on a 2, 3, or 12. Any other number becomes the “come point.”

d. Don’t Come Bet: Similar to the Don’t Pass bet but can be placed after the point is established. It wins on a 2 or 3, and loses on a 7 or 11. A 12 is typically a push.

e. Place Bets: You can bet on specific numbers (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10) being rolled before a 7. The payouts vary based on the number.

  1. Roll the Dice:

The shooter throws the dice. The sum of the two dice determines the outcome.

  1. Resolve Bets:

Depending on the result of the roll, bets are resolved. If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11 on the come-out roll, Pass Line bets win, and Don’t Pass bets lose. If the shooter rolls a 2, 3, or 12, Pass Line bets lose, and Don’t Pass bets win.

  1. Continue Rolling:

If a point is established, the shooter continues to roll until they either hit the point (Pass Line bets win) or roll a 7 (Pass Line bets lose).

  1. Keep Betting:

Players can keep placing bets on various outcomes throughout the game.
Remember that craps offer numerous betting options, and the table can be pretty intimidating for newcomers. It’s a good idea to start with simple bets like the Pass Line or Don’t Pass Line and gradually explore other bets as you become more comfortable with the game. Consider the odds and payouts associated with different bets, as they vary widely.
