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 are 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 deal 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 bet $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 tables, 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.
