Craps is a game of chance and in a casino is played on a large sunken table with a pair of dice that is thrown by the Shooter. The objective of online Craps is to bet whether the Shooter will roll a winning combination. Craps can be considered quite a complicated game, as there are many different ways to wager but in reality is quite straightforward.

The very first roll of a craps game is called the "Come Out Roll", if the total of the 2 dice is a 2, 3 or 12, it is called "Craps", if it is 7 or 11 it is called a "Natural". Both these outcomes end the current game.

If the numbers 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 are rolled, this number becomes the "Point". The dealer flips the "Off" marker to show "On" and places it to the number that corresponds to the point. The two dice continue to be thrown until either the "point" number or a 7 are rolled again. This then ends the game and the "On" marker is flipped to "Off". After the game is ended, the subsequent roll will be the first roll, the "Come Out Roll", of a new game.

Below are listed the bets you can make in a game of online Craps, as well as the payouts.

**Pass Line**

The fundamental bet in craps is the pass line bet. A pass line bet is won immediately if the come-out roll is a 7 or 11. If the come-out roll is 2, 3 or 12, the bet loses (known as "crapping out"). If the roll is any other value, it establishes a point; if that point is rolled again before a 7, the bet wins. If, with a point established, a 7 is rolled before the point is re-rolled, the bet loses ("seven out").

**Don't Pass Bar**

The opposite of the pass line bet is the don't pass bet. If the come-out roll is 7 or 11 it loses. It wins if the come-out roll is 2 or 3. A 12 will be a push. If a point is established and that point is rolled again, the don't pass bet loses. If a 7 is rolled instead of the point, the don't pass bet wins.

**Pass Line odds**

This bet is also called "Taking the odds". If the player has placed a stake on Pass Line and a point is set on the come out roll the player can make an additional wager, placed just below the pass line bet, that the point will be rolled before a 7. There is a limit on how much the stake for this bet can be which is 3x the Pass Line stake. The bet can be made at any time after the point is set when the pass line bet is active.

**Don't Pass Bar odds**

This bet, also called "Laying the odds", is the opposite of Pass Line odds bet. The player bets that a 7 will be rolled before the point. As in Pass Line Odds the stake limit for this bet is 3x the Don't Pass Bar bet. The bet is placed on the line between the Pass Line and Don't Pass Bar areas. The bet can be made at any time after the point is set when the Don't pass bar bet is active.

**Come Point bet**

This bet is similar to Pass Line but it can be made at any time after the point is set. As in the Pass line bet if the player throws a total of 7 or 11 then the come bet wins, if 2, 3 or 12 then the bet loses. If a 4,5,6,8,9 or 10 is rolled then this number become the point of the come bet and the dealer moves the chips from the Come bet area to that number on the board in the bottom left hand side of the square. With the come point established, if that come point is rolled again before a 7, the bet wins, otherwise it loses.

**Come Point odds**

Also as in Pass line the player can decide to put money on the Odds for Come Points, the bet is placed in the bottom right hand side of the number square.

**Don't Come Point bet**

What the Come Point bet is to Pass Line is Don't Come Point bet to the Don't Pass Bar. The Don't Come bets are placed in the top left hand side of the number square.

**Don't Come Point odds**

Also as in Come Point bets, you can place odds on the Don't Come Point bets, the bet is placed in the top right hand side of the number square.

Note: If the main point associated with the Pass Line or Don't Pass Bar is rolled, the game will end and the marker is flipped to "Off" however any Come Point and Come Point odds bets will remain on the table, until their points or a 7 are rolled. In some Craps variations the Come and Don't Come odds bets become inactive in this situation and are only returned if won.

**Place "Win" bets**

The player can bet on the numbers 4,5,6,8,9 and 10 that they will be rolled before a 7. This bet is just like Odds bet (with a worse payout) except no Pass line bet is required.

**Place "Lose" bet **

This is the opposite of Place "Win" bet.

**Big 6 or 8**

These bets are similar to a Place bet on 6 or 8.

**Buy bets**

Buy bets are identical to place bets, only with a different payout.

**Lay bets**

The opposite of Buy bet.

**Hard Way bets**

Hard bets are a bet on either 4, 6, 8 or 10 that it will be rolled before a 7 or an easy roll of that number. It is called hard because to win the dice must be a pair. An easy roll is the number when it is not a pair. For example to win a Hard 8 bet the dice must be rolled as a 4 and 4, before they any roll of 7 or an Easy 8 (3 and 5 or 2 and 6).

**One Roll bets**

One roll bets are a bet on either 2, 3, 11, 12, Any Seven or Any Craps (2, 3, 12) that that number will be rolled on the very next roll.

**C & E **

By clicking on the circles (C) or (E), you place an equal bet (the chip amount selected) on both Any Craps and 11.

**Field**

This is a bet that the next roll will be a 2,3,4,9,10,11 or 12. The payout is 1:1 unless a 2 is rolled then the payout is double, If a 12 is rolled the payout is triple.
