Craps : Game Tips & Strategies
You bet on 6 or 8 only and you win if a 6 or 8 is rolled before a 7. You are paid even money and can bet or withdraw at any time.
The Field is a one-roll proposition and you can bet on any roll. If 2,3,4,9,10,11, or 12 comes up, you win. All numbers pay even money except 2, which pays double, and 12 which pays triple.
3. Any Craps
This is a one-roll proposition and you can bet on any roll. If 2, 3, or 12 are rolled, you win 7 times your bet.
4. Bet the Horn
When you bet these four numbers, 2, 3, 11 and 12, and they come up, you win. This is a one-roll proposition that pays high odds and can be bet at any time during the game.
5. Any 7
This is a one-roll proposition, and you can bet on any roll. If a 7 is rolled, you win 4 times your bet.
6. Any 11
This is a one-roll proposition and you can bet on any roll. If 11 is rolled, you win 15 times your bet.
7. Pass Line
You win on 7 or 11 and lose on 2, 3, or 12 on the first roll. If any other number comes up on the first roll, it is your "point." If you roll your point again before 7 is rolled, you win even money. If 7 comes up (after the first roll) before your "point" is made, you lose. Place these bets in the area marked "Pass Line" on the layout.
8. Don't Pass Line
This is the reverse of betting the "Pass Line" losing on the 7 and 11 and winning on 3 and 12. If a 2 is rolled, it's a "standoff" and nobody wins. If a 4, 5, 6, 9, or 10 comes up, your bet is placed behind that number and you are betting that a 7 will be rolled before your number is rolled. The bet is for even money.
Bets on Come can be made after a point is established. It is the same as betting on the Pass Line. This bet pays even money.
10. Don't Come
Bets on Don't Come are the reverse of Come bets. The winning numbers are 3 and 12 and you break even or "stand off" if a 2 is rolled. You can make a Don't Come bet on any roll of the dice. If 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 come s up, your bet is placed behind that number and you're now betting that 7 will be rolled before your number. You are paid even money.
