# How to Play Craps at Casino

If you're looking for a fun and exciting casino game, craps is the way to go. Although it may seem intimidating at first, it's actually quite easy to learn. In this article, we'll go over the basics of how to play craps at a casino.

## What is Craps?

Craps is a dice game where players bet on the outcome of a roll, or series of rolls, of a pair of dice. The game is played on a specialized table with a layout that includes various betting options.

## The Craps Table

The craps table is a large, oblong surface with a specialized layout. The table is divided into two sections, one for each end of the table. Each section is a mirror image of the other, and both sections have identical betting options.

Below is a table that explains the different sections of the craps table:

 Section Description Pass Line The most basic bet in craps Don't Pass Line The opposite of the Pass Line Come Place your bets after the point is established Don't Come The opposite of a Come bet Field One-roll bets that can be made at any time Place Bets Bets on a specific number Hardway Bets Bets on a specific pair of numbers Proposition Bets One-roll bets on specific outcomes

### The Pass Line

The Pass Line is the most basic bet in craps. It's simply a matter of placing your chips in the area marked "Pass Line." The person rolling the dice, known as the shooter, then rolls the dice.

If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11, you win your bet. If the shooter rolls a 2, 3, or 12, you lose your bet. If the shooter rolls any other number, that number becomes the "point." The shooter then continues to roll the dice until they either roll the point again (in which case you win your bet) or roll a 7 (in which case you lose your bet) LeoVegas.

### The Don't Pass Line

The Don't Pass Line is the opposite of the Pass Line. To make a Don't Pass Line bet, place your chips on the area of the table marked "Don't Pass Line." If the shooter rolls a 2 or 3, you win your bet. If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11, you lose your bet. If the shooter rolls a 12, it's a tie (neither win nor lose). If the shooter rolls any other number, that number becomes the "point." The shooter then continues to roll the dice until they either roll a 7 (in which case you win your bet) or roll the point again (in which case you lose your bet).

### Come Bets

Come bets are similar to Pass Line bets, but they're made after the point has been established. To make a Come bet, place your chips on the area of the table marked "Come." The next roll of the dice becomes the "come-out roll" for your bet. If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11, you win your bet. If the shooter rolls a 2, 3, or 12, you lose your bet. If the shooter rolls any other number, that number becomes the "come point." The shooter then continues to roll the dice until they either roll the come point (in which case you win your bet) or roll a 7 (in which case you lose your bet).

### Don't Come Bets

Don't Come bets are the opposite of Come bets. To make a Don't Come bet, place your chips on the area of the table marked "Don't Come." The next roll of the dice becomes the "come-out roll" for your bet. If the shooter rolls a 2 or 3, you win your bet. If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11, you lose your bet. If the shooter rolls a 12, it's a tie (neither win nor lose). If the shooter rolls any other number, that number becomes the "come point." The shooter then continues to roll the dice until they either roll a 7 (in which case you win your bet) or roll the come point (in which case you lose your bet).

### Field Bets

Field bets are one-roll bets that can be made at any time. To make a Field bet, place your chips on the area of the table marked "Field." If the next roll of the dice is a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, or 12, you win your bet. If the next roll of the dice is a 5, 6, 7, or 8, you lose your bet.

### Place Bets

Place bets are bets on a specific number. To make a Place bet, place your chips on the area of the table marked with the number you want to bet on. If the shooter rolls your number before rolling a 7, you win your bet. If the shooter rolls a 7 before rolling your number, you lose your bet.

### Hardway Bets

Hardway bets are bets on a specific pair of numbers. To make a Hardway bet, place your chips on the area of the table marked with the pair of numbers you want to bet on (for example, a Hard 8 bet would be placed on the area marked "Hard 8"). If the shooter rolls your pair of numbers before rolling a 7 or rolling the same pair "the easy way" (for example, rolling a 4 with a 2 and a 2 instead of rolling a pair of 2s), you win your bet. If the shooter rolls a 7 or rolls the same pair "the easy way" before rolling your pair "the hard way," you lose your bet.

### Proposition Bets

Proposition bets are one-roll bets on specific outcomes. They have high payouts but are also very unlikely to win. Examples of Proposition bets include betting on the next roll being a 2 or a 12, or betting on a specific combination of numbers.
