Craps is a dice game that includes two dice, a player who throws the dice, and other punters who place a wager on the roll outcomes. In online craps, the player (in this case you) click a button for automatic rolls that produce an RNG result. If this were live mode or a brick-and-mortar situation, other players would wager on your outcome, but you only have yourself in this online Craps round.
Before you start the roll, you have to place a wager. You can pick between over a dozen of betting options, all neatly displayed on the table layout. Here’s a tip – hover over the layout to see what wager is in question if you are not familiar with them.
The first roll is the ‘come out roll’. The bet placed before the opening roll is the ‘pass line bet’, signalling that you can wager on the Pass/Don’t Pass bets (but not Come/Don’t Come). The outcome of the first roll determines the course of the round – if it’s 7 or 11, it’s a win. If it’s 2, 3, or 12, it’s a loss. All other numbers in between (4,5,6,8,9, and 10) are considered points and the dice keep rolling until the outcome is either that number or 7/11. Scoring a number is a win while rolling a 7 is a loss that immediately terminates the round.
The in-between that happens while you are waiting to roll the point or the 7 is when you can place other wagers on the layout. Click on the Roll button until you reach the end of the round (or end it if you don’t want to finish it).
The game has a 98.64% RTP and high variance, but it frequently pays if you know a solid craps strategy.
