Craps Rules

All winning bets pay even money unless otherwise indicated.

Don’t forget that PASS BETS and COME BETS are practically even odds, whether you play with or against the dice. These are the safest bets. HARD WAY BETS and similar bets are at higher odds.

In spite of the Laws of Probability, dice often seem to run in winning or losing cycles. Many players make moderate bets until the dice hit a winning or losing streak.


Pass Line Bet: If the first roll of the dice by the shooter adds up to 7 or 11, you win. If the first roll is 2, 3 or 12, you lose. If any other number is rolled, that number is the “point.” If the “point” is rolled again by the same shooter before a 7 is rolled, you win. If a 7 is rolled first, you lose.

Don’t Pass Bet: This is opposite of PASS bets with one exception. A 3 or 12 are your winning numbers, 2 is a stand-off (this is the exception and nobody wins on it), and 7 or 11 are losers. On subsequent rolls (if a “point” has been created), you lose if the “point” is made first and you win if a 7 is rolled first.

Come Bet: This is similar to a PASS bet except that it must be made after the first roll has been made and a “point” has been made. Any number rolled becomes “your point.” This must be made before a 7 for you to win. You lose if a 7 comes up. You may have as many additional “points” as you wish.

Don’t Come Bet: This is the opposite of COME bet. You lose if “your point” comes up and you win if a 7 comes up.

Field Bet: Here you are betting that, on the next roll, a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 or 12 will show. You lose if a 5, 6, 7 or 8 show. If a 2 or 12 show, the pay-off is 2-to-1.

7 Bet: You win (at 5-to-1) if a 7 is rolled on the next roll.

6 & 8 Bets: You win if a 6 or 8 show before a 7 is rolled.

Hard Way Bet: Here you are betting that the dice will come up exactly with the same as they are shown on the layout before a 7 is rolled. A HARD WAY bet pays much higher odds (as marked), but if the number you chose comes up in any other combination of dice, you lose.

Proposition Bet: If a 3 or 11 is rolled on the next roll, you win at 15-to-1. If a 2 or 12 is rolled on the next roll, you win at 30-to-1. These bets are not marked on the layout.

Any Craps Bet: You win if a 2, 3 or 12 come up on the next roll. This pays 8-to-1.

Place Bet: Here you are betting on the “point” as an individual number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10). The odds against making these points vary. To play these points, you must bet a multiply of the odds, For example: if the odds pay 3-to-2, you must bet a multiple of 2 on your choice. Six & 8 pay 6-to-5: 5 & 9 pay 3-to- 2: 4 &10 pay 2-to-l.
