Line Bets

The pass line bet: the most common bet in Craps. This is a bet that players make on their own without the involvement of a dealer. The pass line bet is a bet for the shooter to win. The bet wins if the “come-out” roll displays the number 7 or 11. 

The bet loses if the “come-out” roll displays the numbers 2, 3 or 12. Any other number from the dice roll gives a point. This means that the number should be rolled again before the number 7.  

If a point has been set and that specific number is rolled again, the bet loses. This scenario is called “sevens out”.

Multi-Roll Bets

Multi-roll bets are bets that need a few more extra rolls with the dice before it is possible to decide a result. 

Hard Way Bet: another word for Hard Way Bets is “doubles”. Because the player must roll the same number with both dice in order to win. Hard way bets can only be placed on numbers 4, 6, 8, and 10. 

Example: If both dice show the numbers 4 and 4, the player will only win the bet if the shooter throws 4, 6, 8 or 10 before the shooter throws a 7 or other combination of numbers that are not double.

Easy Way Bet: players will bet on the numbers 4, 6, 8 or 10 to be rolled before the number 7. 

Example: Players win if the shooter throws 4,6,8 or 10 before the 7.

Big 6: players will bet that the number 6 will be rolled before the number 7. Big 6 is also called the “sucker bet”.

Big 8: players bet that number 8 will be rolled with the dice before the number 8. Big 8 is also called the “sucker bet”.

Place Bet: the player tells the dealer how much he wants to bet and on which number before a 7 is rolled. The numbers that the player can select between are 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10.

Buy Bets: Buy bets are similar to Place bets. But buy bets payout full true odds. 5% commission is charged to “buy’” the bet when a player makes the bet.  

Lay bet: can be placed on the numbers 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10. Players can choose a number and a betting amount for each number. Players win if the 7 comes out before the number which the player has chosen.

Single-Roll Bets

Any 7: players bet that the next number will be 7.

Horn Bet: Player bet that the next number will be 2, 3, 11, and 12. 

C&E: players bet that the next number will be  2, 3, 11, or 12.

Hop Bet: players bet that a specific number combination will show up. For example 2-2 or 6-4. 

Players bets

Fire Bet: It can be allowed to place before the shooter begins. Fire bets can be of the amount $1 or $10 or more. 

Bonus Craps: players can place an extra wager of $1 -25 $ before the starting “come out” dice roll. The extra wager of $1 -25 $ can be placed on “All Small ”, “All Tall”, or “All or Nothing at All.” 

To win “All Small, ” players need to get the following numbers before the number 7: 2, 3, 4, 5 o 6. To get “All Tall”, players must get the numbers 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 before number 7. “All or Nothing at All” is won if the player gets all 10 numbers before a 7. 

Multi Different Bets

Players can make multiple different bets. A player can, for example, bet $2 on all hard ways and the horn. The dealer can refill the losing bet with the amount from the winning bet, in case one of the bets by the player wins. 

Working and Not Working Bets

When a bet is working, it means that the bet is current in-play. A working bet can also be a bet that is placed on the Craps table, but not in-play. Examples of working bets are “Pass line” and “Come bets”. 

Another case of a “not working” bet, is if a player decides to not wager a bet in the middle of a dice roll. Then the bet becomes “not working”.

Examples of not working bets are “Place” and “buy bets”. “Place” and “buy bets” are not working if a point has not been set. 

Online Craps Odds

Craps use 2 dice with 6 sides on each dice. This means that it is possible to make a total of 36 different number combinations with each dice. The odds of getting each number is 1 out of 36.
