Craps can be one of the most intimidating casino games. The pace is fast, the multitude of bets seem almost endless, not to mention the fact that there are people fighting for position around a table with limited space only standing. If the table overheats, forget to try to find a place near it! At the start of a new game (before the opening roll), the bettor can place a bet on the pass line or a Do not Pass bet. Pass Line Bets also wins money on the come-out roll when the shooter rolls a 7 or 11 and loses when the shooter rolls a 2, 3 or 12. Do not Pass Bets are just the opposite. Do not Pass Bets also win money when the shooter rolls a 2 or 3 and loses when the shooter rolls a 7 or 11.
If a number other than 2,3,7,11 or 12 is rolled, that number becomes the Point. To designate the point number, the button is placed above this number on the table layout (the point numbers are 4,5,6,8,9,10) and turned so that the side that says “On” is visible . This is so that new players approaching the table will know that a point has already been established and that they cannot make a Pass or Do not Pass bet at this time.
Bettor players who have made Pass Line Bet are hoping the shooter will roll the Point number BEFORE rolling a 7. Do not Pass The Bettors are hoping for exactly the opposite, that the shooter will roll a 7 BEFORE the Point. All Pass / Do not Pass winnings Bets are paid with equal money. However, Pass Line Bettor often takes the odds that their bet will win. This is done by placing an equal or greater number of chips directly behind the Bet on the Pass line. Now every time the pitcher makes his point, the bet on the past line is also paid in cash, but the Odds bet is paid at the exact price. For example, bet $ 5 on the Pass Line and the Point is 4.
