Are you one of the many people who think throwing dice is a simple matter of rolls of the fingers? If you are, you may want to learn a little bit about the dice game of craps. Though the game is referred to as craps, it is not so simple to learn, though not to play. To learn how to play the dice game of craps, you must first learn the terms used in the game.
First, you must know the pass line and the don’t pass line. The pass line is the established betting line in the game. It is located in the center of the table and is marked by the dealer with a round, plastic round disc. The don’t pass line runs in the opposite direction of the pass line. Both the pass and don’t pass lines are sometimes called pairs.
The come out roll
After a game is concluded, the dealer places a round, plastic, Disc in the center of the table, this Disc is called the come out roll. In the come out roll, the player rolls the dice until he rolls a seven or eleven on the come out roll. This point is called a point. The player wins, if he rolls the seven or eleven, because he has overcome the house advantage. The next player can also make a come out roll, and anything that rolls between the seven and eleven wins.
Don’t come out roll
In the next phase of the game the dealer turns over a new disc, this disc is called the don’t come out roll. In the don’t come out roll, the player rolls the dice until he rolls a two, three, eleven, or twelve. Again, a new player has established a point. The thing to remember is that the don’t come out roll can be made again, just as the come out roll can be made again.
Betting in bad hands
Many experienced craps players will say that the key to craps is playing the don’t pass and don’t come bets. These bets are based on the odds, and if the dice are rolling a certain way it is possible to win. However, if you are betting in bad hands, you might not be winning. It takes a lot of practicing, as well as experience. The casinos will allow you to practice at the don’t table so that if you do start dropping, you are not completely out of it.
You can also practice in the free don’t area. The layout is the same, the bets are the same, the dice is the same. The dice will eventually landing in any of the numbers on the layout, so you do not have to worry about accurate shooting. Additionally, you can play one additional “bola88” roll before moving to the don’t come area.
Placing your bet on the don’t pass or don’t come line
So you are familiar with the two areas in craps, the don’t pass and don’t come, maybe you want to move to the don’t pass line. This is where you will double you bets. You do this by placing a bet on the don’t pass line as well as a bet on the don’t come line. All this money will go to the casino if the dice are in the center of the table. The don’t pass line wins, all while you are betting on it, it’s just like doubling up on a point when you are betting the no. 11. You can bet $2, $4, $8, $16, $32, $64, $128, $256, all the way up to $16,000.
Placing a bet on the don’t come line
Since the don’t pass line loses, you may want to move on to the don’t come line. It is similar to the don’t pass area. However, there is a small twist. The dealer will place a single £0.20 chip directly in the middle of the table as a trap. The trap is a £5 chip. If you hit the trap number, the dealer will give you a £10 cheque (on the come out of the dice, not on the layout). The amount of money on the table can vary. £ 512 is the smallest amount that can be placed, and £16,000 is the biggest.
If you shoot a 7 or 11, you will go out as soon as the dice leave the center of the table. If you shoot another number, the dealer will deal you another £5, and then you may come back on the final die, the 12, to win the game.
