With Craps, everything starts with the wager. This is to be set before the first roll (come out roll) of a game. You will usually be seated either on a pass line or a do not pass line.

The first roll of the dice is called a “come out roll” – the player (shooter) has two dice. The dice are thrown to the other side of the table and must touch the wall for the roll to be valid

The betting / gaming opportunities at Craps are:
Pass Line Bet : In the Pass Line Bet, the chip bet is placed in the Pass Line field before the start roll (come out roll). Then roll (roll). If the score of the first litter is 7 or 11 (naturals), you win. If the score is 2, 3, or 12 (craps numbers), you’ve lost. If you score 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 points, that value becomes your point (the point). The rolled value is then marked with ‘on’ in the corresponding number field. You continue to roll for so long

– until you roll the corresponding number again. Then you won.


– until you roll a 7. If this falls before the point, you have lost.

In theory, you can place a pass line bet after the first roll (if the shooter has already thrown a point). Professionals would never do that because it makes no sense. Better would be more like a Come Bet or a Taking The Odds.

Come Bet: In principle, a Come Bet works like the initially described Pass Line Bet. Basically, the 7 and 11 wins. The 2, 3 and 12 loses. 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10 gives the point. However, the come bet can be made at any time as soon as the shooter has thrown a point – in principle, after the come out roll. The bet is then placed in the field for the come bet. If you have placed a come bet, the next roll will come to the come out roll, but only for the come bet weather. For example, if the shooter throws a 7, the Come Bet wins – the Pass Line players in the round would lose (as the 7 comes in front of the point). Even with an 11 win the Come Bet, with the Pass Line players nothing would happen. But if a score is rolled (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10), that number becomes the come point. In order to win the come bet, the come point must fall before the 7 on the following throws. Note: The bet is then usually placed on the come points field. Win, the win is pushed back into the come field. Do not take it away right away, this will be the come bet for the next game!

Taking The OddsIf the shooter has made the initial roll and thrown a point, any player who has a pass line bet can make a taking the odds bet. The Taking The Odds is an additional bet that comes in the following throws the point before 7. Since Taking The Odds is usually not marked on the playing field, the bet amount is placed behind the pass line. The bet size depends on the odds game type. In the case of the single odd, the origin bet is to bring the pass line bet once more (example: pass line bet 1 dollar, taking the odds 1 dollar). Double Odds would double the bet (Pass Line Bet 1 Dollar, Double-odds 2 Dollar). Depending on the casino, there are other odd bets. The interesting thing about odd-bets is that you can be taken back at any time (as long as the point or the 7 has not already been thrown). This is because a casino is not particularly interested in you because of the low house edge at odd bets.

Do not Pass Line Bet: Here the bet is placed on the Do not Pass Line box (or Do not Pass Bar) before the come out roll. The Do not Pass Bet is generally referred to as the opposite of the Pass Line Bet. If the value of the first roll is 7 or 11, you lose (unlike the pass line bet). If the value is 2 or 3, you win. If the value is 12, then you get the insert back (push). Depending on the casino, the 2 is considered a push, then you win with the 3 and 12. If you score 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 points, this value becomes the point again. It will be thrown on again. You win now if you roll the 7 in front of the point (the other way round is the Pass Line Bet). If you first roll the point, you have lost. The Do not Pass Line Bet is not exactly popular. Since most rely on Pass Line, you finally win if they lose! Interesting: If the point is established after the come out roll, you have an advantage over the casino. Therefore, it is also allowed here to withdraw the Do not Pass Line Bet – which of course you should not do.

Do not Come Bets: They are about the opposite of Come Bets. The Do not Come Bet is usually placed after a point has been thrown. If a Do not Come Bet is then placed, the next roll of that bet will be the come out roll of the Do not Come Bet. If this roll is a 2 or 3 (depending on the casino 3 or 12), then you win. If a 7 is thrown, you lose. With a 12 (depending on the casino 2) nothing happens, you only get the bet back. If a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 are thrown, this value becomes a come point. It will be thrown on again. You win now if you roll the 7 before the come point. If you roll the come point first, you have lost. Do not be surprised if others somehow win while you lose or you win and others lose. The simultaneous Pass Line or Don ‘

Further bets : We do not place any further bets except place bet on 6 and 8. There is a reason for that. Due to the comparatively large house advantages you should not play other bets. We’re talking about Place Number Bets like Big 6, Big 8, Buy Bets, Hardway Bets, Lay Bets, Put Bets or Proposition Bets. Only the place bet on 6 or 8 has a decent house advantage of 1.51%. To place a bet, you have to tell the dealer that you want to place a bet on the 6 or 8. If the set number falls before the 7, you win in the ratio 7: 6. Your bets must be set but in 6-er ratios (ie, for example, 6 euros, 12 euros, 18 euros, etc.).

Important note : Pay attention to the respective minimum and maximum bets and always look at the rules of the respective online casino. There may be differences.
