Shreveport Craps - Rules and Information
Exciting and fast-paced, craps offers many different betting options. Three dealers work together to play the game, and the outcome of your wagers are decided by the roll of a pair of dice. A shooter is the player who rolls the dice. The come-out roll is the first roll of the dice, which establishes the point. A point is when the value of the dice on a come-out roll is equal to 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10. You can make a single bet or a combination of bets. The following are some of your betting options:
Come On Lucky 7!
*Pass Line is when you bet that the shooter will win. On the come-out roll, 7 and 11 win and 2, 3 or 12 lose. Any other number rolled becomes the point. The shooter must roll the point again before rolling a 7 to win. If 7 is rolled before the point, the shooter loses, and the dice pass to the next shooter. This bet is called a "contract" bet and must remain on the layout until it wins or loses.
*A Don't Pass Line bet, the opposite of "Pass Line," is when a 7 and 11 loses on the first roll, and 2 or 3 wins (12 becomes a standoff). Once a point is established, a 7 must be rolled before the point can win. However, if the point is rolled first, this bet loses. This bet may be removed but cannot be replaced.
*Come bet can be made on any or every roll after a point is established. This bet will move to the number rolled unless it is the established point. The same rules apply for this as the "Pass Line" bet.
*Don't Come bet can be made on any or every roll after a point is established,
also. However, the same rules as the Don't Pass Line bet apply.
*Place bet is a wager that the shooter will roll a specific number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10)
before rolling a 7. Placed by the dealer, these bets can be taken back at any time
prior to a 7 roll. Simply tell the dealer your bet and he or she will set it up.
Roll Those Dice!
*Odds bet is a wager in addition to your original "Pass," "Don't Pass," "Come" or "Don't Come" wager. It is placed after the point has been established, and the dealer can tell you the maximum "Odds" amount. "Come" bet "Odds" on the come-out roll are inactive unless you tell the dealer that the "Odds" are "working" on the come-out roll. "Odds" laid against "Don't Come" bets are always working.
*Field bet is placed on one roll. If a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 or 12 is rolled, you win. 2 and 12 pays double and the other numbers pay even money.
*Big Six and Eight is when you bet that a 6 or 8 will roll before a 7. This pays
*Hardway bets are wagers that an exact paired combination of 4, 6, 8 or 10 will be rolled before a 7. For example, a "hard six" is two 3s. Placed by the dealer, this bet loses if a 7 rolls first or if the number rolls as a non-paired (soft) combination.
*Proposition bets are when you win if the combination of the dice you bet on rolls. These bets are also placed for you by the dealer and can be made anytime before a roll.
Craps No More
Though very similar to traditional Craps, Craps No More has a few unique variations. The first difference you may notice is that there is no "Don't Pass" or "Don't Come." In addition, your come-out points include the traditional 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, but also the 2, 3, 11, and 12. The rules of play are very simple - on a come-out roll, SEVEN WINS! Any other number rolls and it becomes your point! Then you continue to win as any number rolls until you make your point or until a seven rolls..
Aside from that, all the other standard rules apply. The game offers traditional "Prop" bets, "Hardways," "Come" bets with true odds, "Place" bets, "Buy" bets, and "Lay" bets with the standard 5% vigorish (commission) charged.
