Craps : Game Tips & Strategies

Here is some more detailed information on Craps betting. Although we have extensively covered these topics on different pages of this site, here we have broken down the specific types of bets. These are not betting strategies, simply betting type.

Betting the Pass Line
- When the "shooter" rolls a 7 or 11 on the first throw (The Come-out roll) it is refer to as a "natural" and an automatic win. On the other hand, if 2, 3 or 12 rolls, it is called, "craps" and you lose your Pass Line bet.
- Any other number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10) becomes your "Point." You win if the "Point" repeats before 7 rolls, and you lose if 7 show before your "Point." Is made. Place these bets in the area marked "Pass Line" on the layout.

Betting the Don't Pass Line
- This is the reverse of betting the "Pass Line." You lose on a "natural" 7 or 11, and win if a 2 or 3 rolls (12 is a "standoff," no one wins). If the dice roll 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 it becomes your "Point" and you win if 7 rolls before your "Point" is repeated.
- You lose if your "Point" is made before 7 rolls. Place these bets in the area marked "Don't Pass Line" on the layout.

Come Bets
- The simplest explanation of "Come" bets is that you're betting with the dice, exactly as on the "Pass Line," except that "Come" bets are made any time after the "Come-out" roll.
- You win on "naturals" 7 or 11, and you lose on "craps" 2, 3 or 12. Any other number becomes your "come-point" and you win if your "come- point" is made before 7 rolls. You make these bets in the area marked "Come" on the layout.

Don't Come Bets
- The reverse of betting the "Come." You lose on a 7 or 11, and win on a 2 or 3 (12 is a "stand-off"). Here you win if 7 rolls before your "come-point" is repeated, and lose if the "come-point" is made before a 7 is rolled.
- Place these bets in the area marked "Don't Come" on the layout.

Proposition Bets
- These are all one-roll bets that are decided on each roll of the dice.

Hard ways
- There are four Hard way bets: 4, 6, 8 and 10. Hard way bets pays as follows:
Hard 4 & 10: 7 to 1 per dollar bet.
Hard 6 & 8: 9 to 1 per dollar bet.
- To win on a Hard way bet, the dice must show a pair before the number "7" is rolled or any other combination of the Hard way number is rolled.

Place Bets
- You may make a "Place Bet" any time on any or all of the following numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. If the number you have "placed" rolls before a 7 you win and are paid as follows:
Point: 4 or 10: $9.00 for each five dollars wagered.
Point: 5 or 9: $7.00 for each five dollars wagered.
Point: 6 or 8: $7.00 for each six dollars wagered.

Buy and Lay Bets
- Buy bets are usually made on the 4 and 10. Lay bets are usually made on the 4, 5, 9 or 10. A buy bet wins if the number rolls before a 7.
- A Lay bet wins when 7 roll before the number. Five percent (5%) is charged for these types of bets.

Field Bets
- This is a one-roll bet that may be made on any roll. If 3, 4, 9, 10, or 11 rolls, you win even money. If 2 or 12 is rolled you will win at a ratio of 2 to 1 (some casinos will pay 3 to1 on the number 12).
- If any other number rolls you lose. This bet is placed in the area marked "Field" on the layout.
