Las Vegas electronic craps machines

While electronic craps machines have lower minimum bets, the maximum odds on most craps machines are double. Play is required before determining maximum odds on most games, making it difficult to find any that allow more than double odds. We found triple odds to be the maximum on Casino Wizards machines.

Las Vegas Roll to Win Craps tables

Roll to Win Craps is a hybrid game. There is one dealer and real dice. Players make bets on a screen that is like a stadium or video version of the game. Roll to Win Craps is available for $5 with double odds at Circus Circus. Boulder Station, Palace Station, Red Rock Resort, and Sunset Station have $5 Roll to Win Craps with up to 10 times odds.

Flamingo and Harrah’s have $10 Roll to Win Craps games. These are double odds. All Roll to Win Craps tables pay double on a field 12.

Hybrid Interblock craps games

A new hybrid game is dealt at a few Las Vegas Strip casinos. There is one dealer and real dice. Bets are placed on an Interblock stadium screen. These are available at Horseshoe, Planet Hollywood, The Strat, and Treasure Island. The minimum bet is $5. It is double odds. The field pays double on a field 12. At Planet Hollywood and The Strat, players at the nearby stadium may be on the hybrid craps game.

Other types of electronic craps games

Heads-up gaming is when a player bets on the machine directly with no interaction from other players. These are craps machines where a dice bubble is located at each station and Casino Wizard machines. Heads-up machines allow players to gamble without concern about other players’ speed. It starts when a player deposits money, places the minimum required bet and the timer counts down. The game can be sped up by pushing the deal/roll/spin button. Other stations do not affect the outcome or timing of the game.

Stadium games consist of a set of machine stations and centralized action. Stadiums have multiple games. They can be played at the same time. Stadium menus list games as auto-play or video. Most craps games are auto-play. A camera shows the results on the large screens and players’ gaming screens. Stadiums may also have a live dealer component. With a live dealer, all players join in the same game against the dealer. Each player has an individual screen to keep track of bets for each active game.

Small multi-screen setups with only one game variant are considered video gaming. Video games are played like the live table versions. The actions and speed of players may affect the entire game. A video craps game typically has a central pair of dice in a bubble that rolls for the entire table.

Find all video craps games in our Las Vegas Electronic Table Game Guide. The information includes minimum bets, type of machine, odds, and if the field pays triple on 12 on the field.

How to play craps

A craps game starts with a come out roll. The player making this roll must make a bet that meets the table minimum on either the pass line or don’t pass. The stickman pushes the dice to this player and there is a roll. The dice must hit the back wall to count.

If the come out roll is a 7 or 11, the pass line wins and the don’t pass loses. The don’t pass wins on a 2 or 3, while the pass line loses. On a 12, the pass line loses and the don’t pass bet pushes. This is the house roll. Any of these rolls is followed by another come out with the same shooter.

If the roll is a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, the number becomes the point. Players may place odds behind the line bet. The pass line wins if this number is rolled before a 7. If a 7 is rolled before the point, the don’t pass wins.

How craps odds work

All Las Vegas casinos offer odds on pass line and don’t pass bets. Come and don’t come bets also have odds available. These are the best deals in the house. There is no house edge on odds bets at a craps table. If a game allows double odds, the player may place double the amount of the pass line bet or lay to win up to double the amount from the don’t pass side. The payback depends on the number.

  • 4 and 10: 2:1
  • 5 and 9: 3:2
  • 6 and 8: 6:5

A player that takes odds on a 4 from the pass line wins double the odds amount if that number comes before a 7. It loses if a 7 is first. From the don’t pass, the player would lay double the amount to be won.

If the come out roll is a 4, and the player bets $5, the pass line max odds is $10. If the 4 comes before a 7, the $5 pass line bet wins, as well as $20 on the $10 odds. The bets are returned to the player, too. From the don’t pass, the player would be able to lay $20 to win $10 on the odds. A 7 coming before the 4 would pay the $20 odds $10 and $5 on the don’t pass.

At a 3-4-5 times odds table, the maximum odds win is six times the pass line bet for every number. On a $5 bet, the player could bet $15 on 4 and 10, $20 on 5 and 9 and $25 on 6 and 8. Each of the bets wins $30 if the point is rolled before a 7. From the don’t pass, the player can lay $30 on any of those numbers and win the amount the pass line would have bet. For example, on a 4 point, the player could lay $30 to win $15. This bet wins if the 7 comes before the point. It loses if the point is rolled first.

Other craps bets

The craps felt is covered with different types of bets. These are the ones you will find in every Las Vegas casino:

Field

Field is a one-roll bet. The player wins on a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 and 12. The field pays double on 2. The 12 either pays double or triple on 12, depending on the casino.

Place

A place bet is made on one of the six numbers that can be points. The bettor would like that number to come before a 7. The payouts at 9:5 on 4 and 10, 7:5 on 5 and 9 and 7:6 on 6 and 8.

Buy

A buy bet is like a place bet except it has a different payout. The player pays 5% of the bet in commission. It is generally available on 4 and 10. The house will often give the player a free buy on bets of $20 or more.

Hardways

The hardways are the sets of doubles in the middle of the table. These bets pay out if the hardway is rolled before an easy way or a 7. The hard 4 and 10 pay 7:1. Hard 6 and 8 pay 9:1.

Any craps

Any craps is a one-roll bet. It pays 9:1 if a 2, 3, or 12 is rolled.

Hop bets

Hop bets are one-roll bets. These are the exact calling of the dice rolled. Hardways pay 30:1. All other rolls pay 15:1. The 2, 3, 11, and 12 are often shown on the table. Many houses will let the player hop any dice combination.

Online casinos with craps

Craps is available at some online casinos in the United States. The odds are usually double the pass line and to win double from the don’t side. The field always pays double on 12.

Craps is often not allowed when clearing an online casino bonus. Part of the reasoning there is because the house edge is so low, and including odds in a wagering requirement is counterproductive for the online casino. It also has to do with how some players will try to clear a bonus by betting both the pass line and don’t pass, or come and don’t come.

Making bets like this will void a bonus and may get you banned from a site. Never try to clear an online casino bonus this way. These often return over 100% to table game and video poker players without betting on both sides of an outcome. There is no reason to break the terms and conditions of a bonus.
