The Origins of Craps
The dice-rolling game we know today originated as a British game called ‘hazard’. From England, Hazard made its way to the streets of France where gamblers crouch like ‘crapaud’ or toads when they play the game. This manner of playing gave craps the name we know today.
The Rules of Craps
Craps is an exhilarating game with only one requirement: a pair of two-sided dice. Casinos use a Craps table to make betting easier for loyal patrons.
A game of craps has 3 possible results that you can wager on: natural, point and craps. A natural is the sum of a dice pair resulting in 7 or 11. The point is the sum of a dice pair equivalent to 4,5,6,8,9 or 10. The last outcome, craps is the sum of a dice pair equivalent to 2, 3 or 12.
These possibilities give you the option to wager between Pass or Don’t Pass before the first dice roll. You can win a Pass bet if two conditions are fulfilled. The first condition is hitting a natural. Hitting a point will allow you to re-roll the dice. Getting the same value as the point wins the round. Rolling a 7 after hitting a point will conclude the round.
You can win a Don’t Pass bet by fulfilling two conditions. The first requirement is hitting a crap. The second condition can be fulfilled by hitting a 7 after scoring a point during the initial roll.
You can also bet between Come and Don’t Come after the first roll. You can win with a Come bet by fulfilling similar conditions to the Pass bet. You can win a Don’t Come bet if you hit a 2 or 3 after the initial roll. Hitting the sum of a dice pair equivalent to 12 after the initial roll will result in a Push that lets you keep your wager. Aside from main bets, you can also wager specific outcomes in craps as proposition bets to make the game more exhilarating.
There are two things certain in the world: the French know an adrenaline-pumping game when they see one and they certainly scored a natural with craps. The variety of plays and exhilarating mechanics alone will make you crazy in every roll.
