Throw a 7 or a 11 on the come-out roll today!

› Craps come-out Roll

A players first throw of the dice in craps is known as the "come-out" roll, in which he must establish his "point". In order to do this, the combined values of his two dice must total 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10. A puck isp laced on the corresponding number of the betting layout. The shooter now has to roll that same "point" again before rolling a 7.

Players, including the shooter , bet on the outcome of the come-out roll. If you place a bet on the "pass" line, it means you expec the shooter to be successful in rolling his point again before rolling a 7. This is described as "betting on the dos" or "betting right". Placing a bet on the "don't-pass" line means that you don't expect hte shooter to throw a 7 before throwing his point.

If the shooter throws a 7 or 11 on the come-out roll, it is an automatic win for everyone wh placed a bet on the pass line, those with bets on the don't-pass line lose. If the shooter is to throw a 2, 3 or 12 - known as "craps" - on the come-out roll, everyone that placed a bet on the pass line loses. Those with bets on the don't-pass line win on a 2 or 3 and tie on a 12.

Once the shooter establishes a point - say 5 - he can throw again to roll another 5 before throwing a 7. Any other roll is a "waiting" number and the shooter throws again. If he throws a 5 on the first, the pass-line bet wins and all bets are settled. The shooter will then throw again to establish another point. This continues until he "sevens out" by throwing a 7, after which play passes to the left.
