Craps

Craps is a classic gambling game played with a pair of dice, in which the object is to predict the combined number rolled by the dice. It's said the origin of craps can be traced back centuries, and the simple equipment required mean craps has long been played in the streets.

Craps is available at land-based casinos, but has also grown popular at online casinos, where the dice are rolled using random generator software. Online casinos offer craps for desktop and mobile devices. It's worth noting that not just the 'shooter' gets the bet on a game of craps. Those around the table are also entitled to bet, providing the dealer's button is set to 'on'.

The dice

Two regular, six-sided dice are used for craps. The game is not concerned with the individual number rolled by either dice, but only by the combined score of the two dice added together. Thus, the range of possible outcomes goes from two (achieved by rolling two ones, aka 'snake eyes'), to 12 (achieved by rolling a double six).

Who rolls the dice?

Players take turns to roll the dice, otherwise known as 'shooting'. A player's turn ends when they roll a seven during the 'point' round. We'll explain more here later, but once a player 'sevens out' another shooter, typically clockwise to the left, takes over to roll the dice.

Once play enters the point round, a 'don't pass' bet is banking on the shooter rolling a seven.
