How To Play Craps In Las Vegas Tutorial For Beginners Guide  February 12, 2016 – 02:49 pm

Craps Table LayoutCraps is played with two dice so the possible numbers rolled are 2 through 12. The craps table layout looks confusing because there are many different bets that can be made and because the layout at both ends of the table are exact mirrors of each other. (It is merely duplicated in this manner to allow more players at one table.) However, only one bet is played in basic craps play, and it is placed on only one area of the layout. The rest of the layout can be ignored. Craps play can look confusing and fast-moving because players can place multiple bets on different areas of the layout at the same time. However, craps play can actually be slower than blackjack due to the fact that the dice often have to be rolled multiple times before the outcome is determined.

When you place a basic craps bet (explained below) all you are doing is placing a wager that the person who is rolling the dice will roll the number he needs to win. You're essentially just along for the ride. You are in no way in competition with the person rolling the dice. In fact, you are betting on how lucky they are with the dice. "The house" (the casino), on the other hand, is hoping the person rolling the dice isn't so lucky. This is why you'll often hear a lot of hooting and hollering and find a sense of camaraderie around a craps table. When the person rolling the dice does good, all the players do good.

The basic bet in craps is the Pass Line bet:

  • The bet (chips) is placed on the area of the layout marked "Pass Line" (see the diagram below).
  • The Pass Line bet is a series bet, meaning that the person shooting the dice (aka "the shooter") may have to roll the dice multiple times before you win or lose.
  • The first roll in a series is called the come-out roll and it is different from the rest of the rolls in the series.

On the Come-Out Roll:

  • 7 or 11 are automatic Pass Line winners and the series ends. (This is essentially a one-roll series.)
  • 2, 3, or 12 (known as craps) are automatic Pass Line losers and the series ends. (This also is essentially a one-roll series.)
  • Any other number rolled (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10) becomes the shooter's point and the series continues.

When the series continues.:

If the shooter establishes a point, the series continues and the shooter continues to roll the dice. The object of the game now becomes for the shooter to roll their point number again before they roll a 7.
