Rules

Craps is played with two dice. Chips are used to place bets.

Craps is a game of rounds. A round begins with the player (dice roller/shooter) makes a either Pass Line or Don't Pass wager.

After placing a Pass Line or Don’t Pass wager, the player is required to roll the dice (called “come-out” roll). The round immediately ends when any of the following occurs:

  • The come-out roll results in a total dice value of 7 or 11 (called “natural”).
  • The come-out roll results in a total dice value of 2, 3, or 12 (called “craps”).

If the total dice value is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 then a Point is made for the respective number (the number is marked with the ON puck on the Craps table). The player is required to roll again. The round ends when any of the following occurs:

  • The roll results in a total dice value of the Point number (the number marked with the ON puck on the Craps table).
  • The roll results in a total dice value of 7 (called “seven-out”).

Bets:

There are numerous betting options.

Pass Line:

Pass Line bets must be placed before the come-out roll is thrown.

On the come-out roll, 7 or 11 wins, Craps (2, 3, 12) loses and the round is over. Any other number becomes "point" (marked with the ON puck) and the round continues.

After Point is established, to win the Pass Line bet, Point must be repeated (making point) before 7 is rolled (7 out). Once Point is repeated or 7 is rolled, the bet is settled and the round is over. The next roll becomes the new come-out roll (new round).

For example, the come-out roll is 8, and becomes Point. The shooter continues to roll until an 8 (Pass Line wins) or 7 (Pass Line loses) is rolled.

To make a Pass Line bet, click on the section of table marked Pass Line.

Payout is 1:1 (even money).

The Pass Line wager is a contract bet; it cannot be removed or reduced once the Point is established, until it wins or loses.

Don’t Pass:

The Don't Pass bet is the opposite of the Pass Line bet except rolling a 12 is a push (tie) and the bet is returned to the bettor.

Don't Pass bets must be placed before the come-out roll is thrown.

On the come-out roll, 7 or 11 loses, 2 or 3 wins, 12 is a push. Any other number becomes "point" (marked with the ON puck). To win the Don't Pass bet, 7 must be rolled before Point is repeated (making point). Once Point is repeated or 7 is rolled, the bet is settled and the round is over. The next roll becomes the new come-out roll (new round).

For example, the come-out roll is 8, and becomes Point. The shooter continues to roll until an 8 (Don't Pass loses) or 7 (Don't Pass wins) is rolled.

To make a Don't Pass bet, click on the section of table marked Don't Pass.

Payout is 1:1 (even money).

Don't Pass wager is a contract bet; it cannot be removed or reduced once the point is established, until it wins or loses.

"Come Out" Roll Result
7 or 11 PASS LINE wins
DON'T PASS loses
2 or 3 (Craps) PASS LINE loses
DON'T PASS wins
12 (Craps) PASS LINE loses
DON'T PASS pushes (tie)
4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 (Point Established) PASS LINE wins if Point repeats before 7 is rolled.
DON'T PASS wins if 7 is rolled before Point repeats.

Come:

Come bets are similar to Pass Line bets except they cannot be made on a come-out roll. 7 or 11 wins, 2, 3, 12 loses. Any other number becomes Come Point, indicated by moving the bet to the appropriate number square. To win the Come bet once the Come Point is established, Come Point must be repeated (made) before 7 is rolled (7 out). Once the Come Point is repeated or 7 is rolled, the bet is settled.

To make a Come bet, click on the table area marked Come.

The bet is moved to its corresponding number square when Come Point is established.

i.e. Come Point 8

Come bets payout 1:1 (even money).

Once Come Point has been established (Come bet moves to the respective number), Come bet can be removed but it cannot be changed (increased/decreased).

More than one Come bet may be on the table awaiting resolution. Come bet resolution is independent of Pass Line and Don’t Pass bets.

Don’t Come:

Don't Come bets are similar to Don't Pass bets except they cannot be made on a come-out roll. 7 or 11 loses, 2 or 3 wins, 12 is a push (tie). Any other number becomes Don't Come Point, indicated by moving the bet to the appropriate number square. To win the Don't Come bet once the Don’t Come Point is established, 7 must be rolled before Don't Come Point is made (repeated). Once Don't Come Point is repeated or 7 is rolled, the bet is settled.

To make a Don't Come bet, click on the table area marked Don't Come.

The bet is moved to its corresponding number square when Don't Come Point is established.
i.e. Don't Come Point 5

Don't Come bets payout 1:1 (even money).

Once Don’t Come Point has been established (Don't Come bet moves to the respective number), Don't Come bet can be removed but it cannot be changed (increased/decreased).

More than one Don’t Come bet may be on the table awaiting resolution. Don’t Come bet resolution is independent of Pass Line and Don’t Pass bets.

Odds Bet Overview:

You can accompany your Pass Line and Come bets with an Odds bet.

Odds bet are not applicable for Don’t Pass and Don’t Come bets.

The Odds bet is popular because it pays "true odds" on your bet. True odds are based on comparing the chance of your number being rolled before the 7. To illustrate, the diagram below shows the 7's chance of being rolled (6 in 36) is twice that of the 4 (3 in 36) so placing an Odds bet in favor of the 4 will pay 2 to 1, in favor of the 7 will pay 1 to 2.

Points Pass Line, Come Odds bets pay Max Bet Limit
