Games of chance are great fun and the game of dice has been played for centuries. Craps is a dice game that has been developed into a major gambling attraction. It is played with 2 dice.

Now to understand Craps and Craps Rules and play the game one has to know a bit about the odds. With 2 dice the minimum score is 2 and the maximum score is 12. However one is more likely to throw a 6,7 or 8 than throw a 2, 3, 11 or 12.

What? I hear you as but consider: There is only combination of dice that enable you to get a 2: throwing two 1s and it is the same with 12. In order to score 12 both sixes must be up. Therefore the odds against throwing a 2 or a 12 are 1/36 or 3.6%, the odds of throwing a 3 or 11 are thus 1&2 or 2&1 thus 2/36 = 7.2%

But 7 on the other hand has greater odds as there are 6 combinations to make 7: 1&6,2&5,3&4, 4&3,5&2,6&1. Therefore 7 is the most likely number to be thrown. 6/36 or 16.7%

The next thing to remember, although it is counter intuitive, is that there is no progression of chances. **aplikasi dadu online** If there has been 3 throws of the 7 coming up, there is no variation in the chances that the next number will be any different. There is still a 16.7% chance that the next throw will be a 7.

The third thing to remember that with craps everything is played as a round. Each shooter has to throw the dice until they get a 7. Your bet may stay on the table for the entire round.

So let us consider the first round. The bet with the best odds is always the Passline bet. This is the bet that the shooter will either make a 7 (16.7%) or an 11 (7.2%) but will not throw a 2 (3.6%) 3 (7.2%) or 12 (3.6%). If the shooter throws a 7 or 11 you win and are paid out even money, If 2,3 or 11 are thrown then you lose.

Now if a 4 5 6 8 9 or 10 are thrown then your bet is still alive. The number thrown is called a point. The shooter continues to throw until either the point number is thrown again or a 7 comes up. If the point number is thrown again then you win if the 7 comes up first you lose.

There is a possibility of betting against the shooter by betting on Don’t Pass. Which means that if the first roll is a 2 or 3 you win and if it is a 7 or 11 you lose. The 12 is declare a tie and the win or lose situation depends on the next roll.

During the point throws a player may bet on a number coming up. This is always valid for one throw only and the odds paid vary according to the chances. Casinos claim no house advantage in these bets.

Craps rules may seem complicated but are simple enough and with the above explanation and knowledge of the odds of any number coming up one may have a lot of fun.
