Craps: How to Play and How to Win – Part 1
– With Casino Gambling Expert Steve Bourie
Craps is an easy game to play.
An “off” marker meant the game has not started.
An “on” marker means the game has started.
The first roll of the dice is called the come out roll.
If you place a bet on the “pass line” and the come-out roll is a 7 or an 11, you win (a natural).
If you place a bet on the “pass line” and the come-out roll is a 2,3 or 12, you lose (crap out).
Any other number on the come-out roll establishes “the point” and will be marked with a white “puck”.
After a point is established, you must roll that number again to win the pass bet.
If you roll a 7 before you roll the point number, you lose the pass bet.
