Craps is one of those online casino games that everybody has heard of but not many know how to play. Irish casino players have heard of craps because it is seen in films and if you have ever been to a casino in the USA you will recognise craps as being the noisiest place in the casino. All online casinos have craps and although some bets can be quite complicated and can only be played at certain stages in the game there are simple bets which are placed at the beginning of the round and are valid until the round has ended. The two most popular of these bets are the “pass line” bet and the “don’t pass line bet” both of which are placed in the correct space on the table. In simple terms the pass line bet wins immediately if the first throw is a 7 or 11 and lose if it is a 2,3 or 12 and similarly the don’t pass line bets wins on a 2 or 3 and loses on 7 or 11 with 12 being a push. In all other circumstances more throws are needed to determine the winner but your bet is still valid. It is this need to throw the dice more times that adds to the excitement of craps. The number which is actually thrown on the first throw is now called the “point” and the game continues with as many throws as are needed either to throw the “point” again or a 7. The pass line bet wins at craps if the point is thrown first and loses if a 7 is thrown first with the don’t pass line being exactly the opposite. Played this way you can get all the enjoyment out of online casino craps without it getting too complicated so enjoy.
