How to play Craps online

The game might not have as big of a name as Video Poker or Blackjack (quite literally) but the game is in no way any less intriguing as compared to other online casino games. The game has very basic gameplay that we shall discuss here.

A Craps game starts with a come-out roll which decides how the game will go further. A come-out roll is the first roll of the dice after the end of the last round. The results you see in a come-out roll, decide the winner of the game. Usually, in a brick-and-mortar casino, the dices of the game are rolled by a shooter. At our casino, all you need to do is to hit the ‘Roll’ button if you are the shooter. And don’t worry about the quality and visuals of the game, you get to see the game in HD quality along with all other players on the table. When the dices are rolled, there are a number of possible outcomes as the number of dices used in the game is ‘2’. The possible outcomes and their effects are as follows:

Roll Outcome Effect
7 or 11 Natural The shooter wins and gets to roll the dice again
2, 3 or 12 Craps The shooter doesn’t win but gets to roll the dice again.
4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 Point The shooter can roll the dice again but will win only if he gets the same result the next time.

If the shooter is unable to get favorable outcomes, the role of the shooter is passed to the next player.

Now that you know the outcomes and effects of the rolling dice, you should prepare yourself for the other half of this journey, which is, placing bets.
