How to Play Craps & Win

In the game of craps, the shooter (the person rolling the dice) can win by rolling a seven or eleven on their come-out roll. However, other players at the table can also win by placing bets on the pass line or the come-out line.

To play craps, players place their bets on the pass line or the come-out line before the shooter makes their come-out roll. If the shooter rolls a seven or eleven on their come-out roll, all players who placed bets on the pass line win. If the shooter rolls a two, three, or twelve, all players who placed bets on the pass line lose.

If the shooter rolls any other number (four, five, six, eight, nine, or ten), this number becomes the point. The shooter continues rolling the dice until they either roll the point number again, in which case all pass line bets win, or they roll a seven, in which case all pass line bets lose.

Players can also place bets on individual numbers, known as place bets or proposition bets. These bets offer higher payouts but have lower odds of winning. The most popular place bets in craps are the six and eight, as these numbers have a higher probability of being rolled than the other numbers.

To increase your chances of winning in craps, it is important to avoid the bad bets with high house edges, such as the big six and big eight bets, as well as the hardways bets. Instead, focus on placing bets with the best odds, such as the pass line and come bets, and consider placing place bets on the six and eight. With a good understanding of the game’s rules and strategies, players can enjoy the excitement of craps and increase their chances of winning big.
