Craps has been a popular casino game since the era of the Roman gladiators. In casinos today, it often seems as if the people at the Craps table are having their own party, with all the laughing and cheering going on. You'll be hard-pressed to find a game with more excitement and fun than Craps.

OBJECT OF THE GAME
There isn't a single object of Craps - except to win! Some players may choose to wager with the shooter by wagering on the Pass and Come lines. Other players may wager against the shooter by playing the Don't Pass or Don't Come lines. Still other players may not want to become involved with making points, and prefer single-roll bets like Field or Any Craps.

TO BEGIN

1.
Select $1, $5, $10, $25, or $100 chips by clicking the appropriate denomination at the bottom of your screen. Make sure your wager is greater than the Minimum Bet for the table

2.
After this selection, continue to place your bet by clicking within one of the betting areas on the Craps table.


Note: To retract a bet, just right-click on the chips and your wager amount will be reduced by the amount of the selected chip.


LETíS PLAY
To many people, Craps is their favorite casino game. It is fast, exciting and wild fun. It appears to be complicated at first but it is actually very simple.

The player, called the shooter, rolls two dice and the total of the two dice is added together.

The first roll is called the Come Out roll. When rolling the Come Out roll, the shooter is trying to establish a Point by rolling one of the following numbers: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10. If one of those numbers comes up, then that number becomes the Point.

If you wagered on the Pass Line, you are betting that the shooter will roll the Point again before rolling a 7. For instance, your Pass Line bet would win if the shooter rolled the following sequence: 4, 6, 8, 12, 5, 4. You would lose if the shooter rolled this sequence: 4, 6, 8, 12, 5, 7. The round ends when the shooter either rolls the point (by rolling a 4) or craps out (by rolling a 7).

If you wagered the Don't Pass Line, you are betting that the shooter will crap out by rolling a 7 before the Point is rolled again. For instance, your Don't Pass Line would win if the shooter rolled the following sequence: 4, 6, 8, 12, 5, 7. You would lose if the shooter rolled this sequence: 4, 6, 8, 12, 5, 4.

If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11 on the Come Out roll, the Pass Line wager is paid off at even money and the Don't Pass wager is lost. If the shooter rolls a 2, 3, or 12 then the Pass Line wager is lost. The Don't Pass wager wins if a 2 or 3 is rolled and is a push if a 12 is rolled.

If the shooter rolls a point number, then the game progresses to the next stage where the shooter has to roll the same number again before rolling a 7.

The Pass and Don't Pass bets are common bets. However, there are many other bets that can be made.


ADDITIONAL TYPES OF BETS

The Pass Bet
This is a bet that the shooter will throw a 7 or 11 on the Come Out roll or, alternatively, that the shooter will roll the Point again before rolling a 7. You cannot remove a Pass bet after the Point has been made.

The Don't Pass Bet
This is the opposite of the Pass bet. This bet is placed against the shooter and wins if craps (2 or 3) is thrown on the Come Out roll or if the shooter fails to make the point. If a 12 is thrown, the bet is a push. You cannot remove a Don't Pass bet after the Point has been made.

The Come Bet
This bet is similar to the Pass bet but need not be made on the come out roll. When you place a Come bet, the next number rolled will be treated as if it were your Point.

The Don't Come Bet
Again, this bet is similar to the Don't Pass bet, but can be made after a Point has been made. You cannot remove the Don't Come bet after it has been placed.

Odds Bet
This is an additional bet made on a Pass, Don't Pass, Come or Don't Come bet that has already been placed. Odds bets can only be made once the point has been established. Odds bets are paid out at the true odds: 2 to 1 on a roll of 4 or 10, 3 to 2 on a roll of 5 or 9, and 6 to 5 on a roll of 6 or 8. Odds bets can be removed or reduced at any time.

Buy Bet
This bet can be made on the following numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. It is a bet that the relevant number will be thrown before a 7.

Lay Bet
This bet can be made on the following numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. It is a bet that a 7 will be thrown before the relevant number.

Field Bet
This is a bet on the outcome of the next throw. It pays even money if a 3,4,9,10 or 11 is thrown, and 2-1 if a 2 or 12 is thrown.

Hardways Bet
This bet can be made on 4, 6, 8 or 10. It is a bet that the relevant number will be thrown in its double form (for instance, a hard 8 occurs when two 4s are thrown) before a 7 and before that number is thrown in any other combination.
