How to Play Craps
On the Come Out Roll, which is the roll before a point is established, 7 or 11 wins on the Pass Line and 2, 3 or 12 loses. Any other number becomes the point (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10) and is marked by the puck. In order to win the Pass Line bet, after a point is established you must roll the point again before a 7. All bets on the Pass Line lose if a 7 is rolled before the established point. The dice are then passed to the next player.
Bets on the Don't Pass are betting the opposite of the Pass Line. Rolling a 2 or 3 wins on the come out roll, 12 is a push. If 7 or 11 rolls, all bets on the Don't Pass lose. Any other number becomes the point. After the point has been established, the Don't Pass wins on 7 and loses if the point is rolled again.
A Come bet can be made only after a point is established. All bets on the Come are betting on the next roll of the dice. It wins on 7 or 11, loses on 2, 3 or 12. If any other number is rolled, the money is moved to the numbered box in a position corresponding to the position of the player at the table. This bet wins if the number rolls again before a 7.
A Don't Come bet can be made only after a point is established. This bet is the opposite of the Come. It wins if 2 or 3 is rolled and pushes on 12, it loses if 7 or 11 is rolled.
