Craps is one of the most widely played casino games. It is a very complicated game and a game based on pure luck. The craps game was developed from the Old English game named hazard. Craps is basically a gambling game played with two dice.  The main objective of the game is to predict the outcome of the roll of the dice. A first throw of 7 or 11 wins the game and a first throw of 2, 3, or 12 loses the game and a first throw of any other number is repeated to win before a 7 is thrown, which otherwise loses the bet


The craps table is run by four casino members: a box man who monitors the playing chips, dealers and the players; two dealers who collect and pay bets to the winners; and a stickman who announces the results of each dice roll and collects the dice.


In craps game, the player rolling the dice is called the shooter and first throw of the dice is called the Come out Roll. If the player throws a 7 or 11 on the first roll he wins and this is called a ‘natural’.  If on the first roll the player throws a 2, 3 or a 12, it s called craps, and the player loses.  The shooter goes on rolling until he makes a ‘seven out’. If the player throws a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, then he makes a ‘box point’ and keep on rolling the dice until he throws the same number again. But if he throws a 7 before the same box point, he loses.




There are two basic bets available in Craps game. One is the roll bets which are determined by the next roll of the dice and the other one is the sequence bets which require several rolls of the dice before determining the results. The various bets available in craps game are pass line bets, don’t pass line bets, come bets, don’t come bets, odds bets, place bets, proposition bets, hard way bets, any seven bet, any craps bet, and many more.


Craps Combination and Odds


There are 11 possible numbers in the craps game ranging from 2 to 12. And for each roll of the dice there are 36 possible outcomes. 7 is the most probable number to be rolled as six of the 36 outcomes result in sevens. On the other hand, 2 and 12 are the least probable and each have 1/36 chance of coming out. The following pairs have equal probabilities: 3 & 11, 4 & 10, 5 & 9, and 6 & 8.
