In the game of craps do I have to bet on each and every roll?
For example, can I bet once and then wait 5 rolls before I place another bet? Is this legal? I want to start playing craps when I visit the casino and I am just curious. I don’t want to start off doing something illegal and annoy the staff and other players by playing like an amateur. Thanks in advance for your help.

In the game of craps, you are not required to bet on each and every roll. You can certainly choose to place a bet, then wait for several rolls before placing another bet. This is completely legal and within the rules of the game.
However, if you are the shooter (the person rolling the dice), you are typically required to have a bet on the pass line or don’t pass line. This ensures that you have some stake in the outcome of the roll. If you’re not the shooter, you have more flexibility in when and how often you place bets.
Keep in mind that craps is a social game, and other players at the table might expect some level of participation. While you don’t have to bet on every roll, it’s essential to maintain a reasonable pace of play and be respectful of the other players and casino staff.
As a beginner, don’t be afraid to ask the dealers for help or clarification on the rules. They are there to assist you and ensure everyone has an enjoyable gaming experience.
