Craps: The Basics

Roulette, casino war, slot machines and blackjack are all common casino games that are relatively simple to master and quick to play with your Unibet bonus. For the most part they involve one premise and require very little thought in terms of which bets you should make. Indeed, for games such as casino war, blackjack and keno there’s one main bet that you can stick to. Similarly, while there are more betting options in a game of roulette, they’re a lot easier to understand than those at the craps table.

In the rest of this article we’re going to outline the basic aims and structure of the game with the intention of making you an informed player.

The main aim when playing craps is to correctly predict the outcome of a dice roll before the round is brought to an end. In the initial stage of the game (known as the come out roll), many players will simply make a pass line bet. This bet is deemed a winner if the shooter (person throwing the dice) rolls a seven or eleven. If this happens then all pass line bets are declared winners and a new session starts.

However, if during the come out roll a two, three or twelve (craps) is thrown then all pass line bets are lost and the round is over. Going beyond this, the final scenario occurs when neither craps nor seven/ eleven is rolled. At this point the number that is rolled is deemed “the point” and the aim of the game is for players to correctly predict the value of the dice roll before seven or eleven are rolled.

This reversal in status between seven and eleven is the main thing that often stumps novice craps players. However, if you can get to grips with this you’ll find the game offers a wealth of opportunities to make a lot of money.
