Craps is believed to come from a variation of the Old English game called Hazard and a spin-off of the French Crabes. In craps, the players wager money against the casino and bet on the outcome of one or a number of rolls of two dice.
There are three major forms of craps today:
Street craps – The informal version of the game usually played by groups of people in alleys or in rooms.
Casino craps – The most popular in land casinos today and differs from street craps.
Online craps – The newest version and an exciting combination of both forms that has been slightly simplified to enable the online player the opportunity to experience the thrill.
How to Play Craps option #1:
Craps is a betting game played with two dice, where a first throw total of both dice is seven (7) or eleven (11) is an instant win.
A first dice throw with a total of two (2), three (3) or twelve (12) loses the bet.
If the first throw is any other number than those listed above, that number becomes the “Point” and the Point Number must be thrown before a seven (7) is thrown in order to win.
If a seven (7) is thrown before the Point Number is thrown the player loses the bet (Crapped Out) and the dice must be passed to the next player that places a bet on the “Pass Line”.
