  •  1.History of craps

    Starting as an English dice game called Hazard during the time of the Crusades, this game was adapted by the French and changed its name to Crapaud as it grew in popularity with the street gambling crowd. Exposure to Crapaud gradually expanded on a global scale, and – as with so many casino games – when it reached America, it transformed over time into the modern game we know and love today.

    During the Second World war, Crapaud became extremely popular because the simple dice format required very little transportation and organisation, and the game provided soldiers with a welcome distraction in the trenches during the long periods of waiting. After the war, when this game was accepted into land-based casinos, the rules were amended and the game became complicated, requiring several staff to man the tables. As a result, it became an attractive option to players looking for something new, exciting and different. The new name, craps, was adopted and its exciting game-play drew the crowds.

    Online craps removed changed this, providing games at any time of the say, and with stakes reduced to accessible minimums. This way, all players looking for a game could get their turn. Now an affordable and convenient option, craps’ popularity boomed and it became one of the top choices for the discerning player.

  •  2.Odds

    When it comes to craps odds, you have to look at the game’s betting system. Take notice at all times of the players’ odds, and compare this to the house edge. A general rule to follow is that, if the bet you have chosen has a low payout, it has better odds of hitting than a bet with a higher payout – this is a rule that works with all online casino games. For the best chance of improving your odds at the craps table, learn your bets and carefully and familiarise yourself with the game until you know it inside out. Only then can you make an informed choice about what bets to place, and understand how to spread your bets across the field using your own betting system.

    When it comes to your casino bankroll and playing games for real money, online craps is considered one of the best options as it offers so much choice and there are better odds of winning on offer when compared to more basic games with fewer betting options. You can figure out whether the odds are to your liking by considering dice combinations. Craps is played with two dice, and the outcome of each roll depends on what shows on these two dice.

    Some numbers can be thrown in a variety of ways – for instance, it is easier to roll a seven (5+2, 6+1, 4+3 get the same result) – whereas other numbers only have one available combination, such as the point total of 2 (via the 1+1 combination only). The more combinations there are available, the easier it is for you to hit this winning combination – you may like to use this to inform your betting choices and improve your odds.

  •  3.Game rules

    To learn the game of craps, you have to understand the basics. This means knowing by heart what bets you can place and at what time. This also means being able to recognise what stage of the game is in play when you approach a table, as well as understanding each of the bets that you can place during each stage.

    The place to start is by learning the Come Bet, the Don’t Come bet, the Pass Line bet and the Don’t Pass bet. You also need to recognise the Come Out roll and the Points roll. Once you know these, you can start playing at the online craps tables, building on your basic understanding as you become more familiar with the game by adding more complicated bets to your knowledge base as you go.

    Every craps game begins with the Come Out roll. To recognise this stage of the game, look for the Dealer button – you will see it is turned to ‘Off’. The aim of the Come Out Roll is for the shooter (when you play online, this is a virtual shooter) to establish a point. To establish a point, the shooter needs to roll a dice to a total of 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10. At this time, players can opt to place a Pass Line bet or a Don’t Pass bet.

    The Pass Line bet is a wager that instead of a point, the shooter will roll a 7 or 11 on the Come Out roll. If you have predicted this correctly and either number is rolled, you win. Alternatively, you lose if the shooter rolls a 2, 3 or 12 point total. Another option is that the shooter will achieve their aim and establish the point; if this happens, the number rolled becomes your point, and the shooter continues to roll until either the point is rolled (you win) or a 7 is rolled (you lose).

    The Don’t Pass bet works in the opposite way, but it is also played on the Come Out roll. The Don’t Pass Bet will lose if the shooter rolls a 7 or 11 point total, and it will if a 2 or 3 is rolled. During this bet, a 12 point total is a draw, so your wager will be returned to you if it is rolled.

    Once the point is established, the Dealer Button moves to mark a point and switches to ‘On’. You can now make a number of bets, but start by learning the Come and Don’t Come bets before you entangle yourself in more complicated options. When you place a Come bet, you win if the shooter rolls a 7 or 11 and you lose if the shooter rolls a 2, 3 or 12. Alternatively, if a different number is rolled, it becomes your point. The shooter continues rolling and if your point is rolled before a 7, you win.

    A Don’t Come bet again works in the opposite way, so this means that you will win your bet if a 2 or 3 is rolled, but you will lose with a 7 or 11 point total. A 12 total is a draw, and you will have your wager returned to you automatically.
