This is the complicated and weighty stuff Craps is really about. So, get ready for the betting world of Craps:
This bet is placed on the Pass Line before the Come Out Roll. This bet assumes that you’ll get past the Come Out Roll, and that you’ll roll the Point again before you roll an Out 7. This is called the “right” bet, because you’re betting that the shooter wins. These bets win at even odds 1:1.
You win if you roll 7 or 11 on the Come Out Roll, or if you later roll the Point.
You lose if you roll 2, 3 or 12 on the Come Out Roll, or an Out 7 on later rolls.
Don’t Pass Bets
This is the opposite of a Pass Bet. Assuming that the round goes past the Come Out Roll, you’re betting that the shooter will roll an Out 7, before hitting the Point. You’re betting against the shooter, which is why this is called a “wrong” bet. But, there’s nothing wrong with the odds!
You win if the Come Out Roll shows Craps (2,3 or 12), or if a later roll is an Out 7.
You lose if the Come Out Roll shows 7 or 11, or if a later roll is the Point.
Come/Don’t Come Bets
These are comparable to the Pass/Don’t Pass bets. The difference is that they are placed, while a round is in progress, for players who join the game late. The same rules apply. You win if the next roll is 7 or 11 and you lose if it’s Craps.
These are Place Number bets and Proposition bets. The odds on these bets are not very good and are basically for people with money to waste or itching to gamble on every toss of the dice.
In a place bet, you bet that a particular number will roll before a 7 does, or vice versa. These include Place, Buy, Lay and Lose bets, the Big 6 …
