Craps Betting and Bets
Pass Win Line Bets
All craps 'pass win' bets should be placed before the come out roll and subsequent score. Betting on the 'pass win' line is one of the most popular types of bets in the game and may not be removed and changed once the player has scored their point.
Bets placed on the craps 'pass win' line win when a natural score of 7 or 11 is thrown on come out roll, or when a point is made. Bets placed on the 'pass win' line lose if a 'craps' score of 2, 3, or 12 is thrown, or if the shooter does not achieve a point.
All winning bets on the 'pass win' line are paid at odds of events. Betting on the 'pay win' line is as simple as players placing their chips on the line in front of their position at the casino table.
Pass Don't Win Line Bets
All craps 'pass don't win' bets should be placed before the come out roll and subsequent score. Bets placed on the 'pass don't win' line may not be removed or changed once the player has scored their point.
Bets placed on the 'pass don't win' line win when a 'craps' score of 2, 3, or 12 is thrown or if the shooter does not achieve a point. Bets placed on the 'pass win' line lose if a natural score of 7 or 11 is thrown on come out roll or when a point is made.
Casino Barred Craps Scores
At many casinos where craps is a popular gambling attraction, the casinos bar either scores of 2 or 12, therefore increasing their associated casino house advantage. This has become commonplace in numerous casinos operating craps, where barred scores are indicated by two dice totalled the barred score, located in the 'don't pass' area of the table. Barred scores may also be referred to as a craps 'push' or a 'tie'.
Come and Don't Come Bets
'Come' and 'don't come' betting in casino craps are generally less popular than bets on the win line, although 'come' and 'don't come' bets have the advantage that they allow new players to join the game after the come out roll.
In craps, 'come' and 'don't come' betting is similar to bets placed on the 'pass' and 'don't pass' lines, following the same rules, although they can be placed against any throw of the dice.
Once a 'come' or 'don't come' bet has been placed on the table, the casino dealer moves the betting chips to the relevant scoring box. Craps 'come' bets may not be removed or reduced after a point has been established, although 'don't come' bets may be changed in this situation.
Casino Odds Bets
Odds bets in craps are additional bets that are allowed once a point has been scored, when the player already has an existing 'pass', 'don't pass', 'come' or 'don't come' bet on the table. In the game of craps, odds betting provides excellent value and are always paid out by applying mathematical calculations, with no commission being deducted. For that reason, many casinos apply maximum odds limits in craps, which can vary greatly.
In odds betting, when the player places a high stake, the casino house advantage is reduced. Odds bets may be changed or removed from the table at any time during the game.
