Craps Rules: Hitting the Come Out Roll
Before a game can commence, a correct 'come out' roll must be thrown. If a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 is rolled, 'the point' is set. If the number is a 2, 3, 7, 11 or 12, the next shooter has a turn.
Placing bets is easy: just drag chips to the area of the table you want to gamble on. These all relate to the outcome of the dice relative to the 'Point' number.
For example, a 'Don't Pass Line' bet is made before the Come Out roll. If a 7 is rolled before a valid Point number is rolled, the player wins a 1/1 bet.
Placing Craps Bets
Players have a range of bets to make before or after the Point is set. Let's take a look at the main wagers:
Placed before the Come Out roll. If a 7 or 11 is rolled you win. However, if a 2, 3 or 12 comes out, you lose.
Don't Pass Line
Placed before the Come Out roll, this is the opposite of the Pass Line bet. You win if a 7 comes out before the point does.
This bet wins an even-money payout for the player if the next roll is 7 or 11. Look for the 'Come' box on-screen as this is where your chips go. If 2, 3 or 12 comes (Craps), you lose. Hit a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, however, that number becomes the 'Come Point' and your bet is moved to the corresponding box. If the Come Point appears before a 7, you win an even-money bet.
This is the opposite to the Come bet. If a 3 or 2 is rolled, you win.
Place this bet on the Field section, and if the next number is a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 or 12, you win. 2 pays 2/1, 12 gets you 2/1 also. Everything else wins the player 1/1 (even money).
Pays: 7/6 for 6 & 8, 7/5 for 5 & 9, 9/5 for 4 & 10
These are great bets for hitting totals. Place your wagers on totals of 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. Hit those totals before the 7 comes and you win.
Place Lose/Lay Bet
Pays: 4/5 on 6 & 8, 5/8 on 5 & 9, 5/11 on 4 & 10
Similar to the Place Win bet, you win if the opposite happens, namely a 7 comes before your total appears.
Any Craps Bet
A fun 7/1 wager wins the player a big prize if a 2, 3 or 12 total is rolled next.
Pays: 7/1 or 9/1
"Hardway" wagers are bets on the next roll coming out as double which totals 4, 6, 8 or 10 (e.g. two 2s, two threes, two fours, etc).
