The Come Out Phase
In all Craps games in the initial Come Out Phase your wagers are said to be with or against the Shooter. The Shooter is the person throwing the dice. You are predicting whether the Shooter will win or lose. This is betting with or against the Shooter, with Pass and Don’t Pass Bets respectively.
If the Shooter wins or loses when you place a Pass Bet, so do you. The opposite is true when you place No Pass wagers. For the Shooter to win, they need to roll a 7 or an 11. Landing a 2, 3 or 12 means that they’ve lost. Any other number that appears on the dice during the Come Out Phase is established as the Point. This is also when the Point Phase begins.
The Point Phase
In the Point Phase, the Shooter wins if they land 7, 11, the Point established in the Come Out phase, or another Point of your own choosing. The wagers you place here are known as Come and Don’t Come Bets, and once again you wager with or against the Shooter.
The Come Bet is similar to the Pass Bet, and wins and loses with the Shooter. The Don’t Come and Don’t Pass Bets also work in the same way. Your Don’t Come bet wins if the Shooter loses, and vice versa.
The payouts for Come/Don’t Come and Pass/Don’t Pass vary, because some totals can be created with more number pairs than others. For example, 8 can be a total of 6 and 2, 5 and 3 or 4 and 4. On the other hand, 5 can only be a combination of 4 and 1 or 3 and 2.
Additional Craps Bets
Once you’re familiar with the basic Pass and Come options, there are plenty of other Craps bets to explore. In Place Win, you win if any number between 4 and 10 is rolled after the Point has been established. The only exception to this is 7, which is when the corresponding Place Lose bet wins. Buy and lay wagers work similarly, but they have higher payouts and 5% commission.
Hardways Bets are predictions that 2 of the same number will land before the next 7 is rolled. For example, a Hard 6 says a pair of 3s will be seen before the next total of 7. In Big 6 and Big 8 you are simply saying that any combination making up a 6 or 8 will be thrown before 7 appears again. Other options include very specific propositions and we suggest you have fun investigating all the possibilities!
Login and Enjoy Great Craps at Spin Casino
The chance-based action of Craps is tempered a little by the fact that you can bet strategically on the games. The wagers for each number in the Pass/Don’t Pass and Come/Don’t Come bets carry their own odds, and so do all the other betting options.
As always, the steeper the odds are, the larger the potential payouts. You need to decide how much risk you want to take, and formulate your betting plan from there.
