Unregulated gambling like street craps is illegal in every state in the US and in many places elsewhere. There's nothing wrong with playing for fun, and it's unlikely anyone would hassle you over a low-stakes penny game among friends, but it's still important to know that gambling for money outside of a licensed and regulated casino is always illegal. Part 2 of Start the game by anteing up. Like in most card games, if you want to play you've got to ante up by throwing a pre-determined value usually small in the pot.
This will happen before you decide on the shooter and before you place any bets. What you're paying for is basically the right to be considered for shooting. You don't have to place a bet after you've anted up. Like in cards, if you want to sit out for a game but still watch and think about betting, you need to ante up first.
Roll to see who the shooter is. All players who anted will roll to determine the shooter. Whoever rolls the highest number shoots. Different games may have different rules--you could also roll until someone reaches 7, or whatever pre-determined way of choosing you desire. The point is, you must pick a shooter randomly. Place your initial pass or no-pass bets. Once the shooter is selected, the shooter will bet first.
The amount of the bet will be either "pass" or "crap," though in some games it's assumed that the shooter will always bet on himself or will always bet pass, in other words. To match the shooter's bet is to come up with the same amount of "money," in support of the opposite outcome. If you've anted up, you can throw in to match, or you can wait and bet on the side. If the other players match the shooter's bet, you can place a side bet with other players who are willing to match more bets if you still want to play.
This might include betting either pass or crap. Roll the come-out. The shooter rolls the initial come out roll. If the shooter passes or craps, the game is over and the money is distributed evenly among the players, according to the bets placed. Roll for point if necessary. Continue rolling until the shooter points up or goes 7 out. Depending on the game, if a point is reached, sometimes the betting goes into higher gear.
A round of side betting when the game goes to point is not uncommon, just as in poker the betting may continue. Although folding is not a possibility in craps, so it's probably more often that the initial bets stand through until the end, because the games are relatively short. Part 3 of Get statistical. Because you're using two dice, the probability of rolling any particular number is different depending on the number.
Some values are more likely than other values, because there's more than one way to reach them. By learning a little bit about the statistical probability of rolling a particular number each time, you can make smarter bets. Use statistics to know the best bets. Pass bets are always more likely. Betting on 7 is generally a smart bet, because the odds of rolling a 2, 3, or 12 are fairly unlikely when compared to the odds of rolling a 7 or When you know about the likelihood of reaching any particular value on a given roll, you can place smarter bets.
Now the likelihood is reversed, and the shooter's in the corner. It's more likely on the next roll he'll roll a 7, so your initial bet paid off. Now your odds are better. When you're the shooter, roll the dice correctly. Set the dice so that on the top of each die the 3 is facing up in a V shape. This is traditionally the "set" for the dice, so all players know you're not cheating or doing something unfair to the game.
In casino craps, the dice must go all the way to the back wall of the table for it to count. This is why most street craps games are played against walls. Generally, you'll be a few feet away and roll against the wall, or some other kind of backdrop. Bet big when you're the shooter. Most times when you shoot crap, the game involves the shooter making the biggest bet that he will pass and all the other players betting smaller amounts that he will crap out.
Because, as you've seen from the probability, it's most likely that the first roll will be a 7. So, don't jump into the game making huge foolish bets on crap outs that are unlikely. Wait until you're the shooter if you want to win. Part 4 of Learn other dice games. Dice are super simple, but have a whole load of possibilities for games, some of which have unfortunately fallen out of style.
You don't need an elaborate game board or an Xbox to play fun games, and there are plenty of games that don't require complex series of bets to enjoy. Learn a few and mix it up. It's also important to distinguish between playing street craps and playing other kinds of dice games, some of which involve betting and some of which don't.
If someone asks if you want to "shoot dice," they could be referring to some other game, though craps is the most likely. Try cee-lo. Sometimes called lo dice, in this popular game, each player has three dice, usually in some kind of cup, and each player rolls simultaneously after a round of betting.
The object is to get the highest possible score, though the scoring works somewhat like poker. This is like a royal flush in poker. The next highest combination would be triples. Even if you rolled all ones, rolling three ones would be the next highest category of score, only beaten by triples of any other number, or the 4, 5, 6 combo. The next highest combination is called a "pair and a spare," which is sort of like a full house.
This would be a matched pair, plus some other value. In the event two players rolled double 4's, the higher value of the other die would be the winner. If a player rolled two twos with an extra six, while another player rolled two sixes with an extra two, the first player would win. Ties are awarded to the highest value on the extra die, the pair doesn't matter. If two players roll exactly the same thing, generally a re-roll is performed.
Play drinking dice. Also sometimes called Mexican dice or liar's dice, this is a game of deception that can get fun and rowdy, especially when somewhat, uh, lubricated. In drinking dice, players pass around a single cup with two dice in it and take turns guessing at the value under them, either challenging or accepting the value as reported by the previous player. The player then passes the cup carefully so as not to tip over the dice to the player to his right.
The next player can either challenge or accept the value as reported by the previous player, or can up the ante by making a guess of their own. Eventually, the game must continue until someone challenges. If, upon challenging, the initial report was correct, the challenger and all other players lose, unless a subsequent player had reported or guessed correctly. If a challenge is upheld, the liars are the losers, and usually have to take a drink.
The point values vary from game to game, though generally a combo is considered the highest possible value. It's also possible to play the game "blind," meaning that no one ever looks at the value until someone challenges. Roll bones. While "rolling bones" is sometimes slang for shooting craps, bones is actually a distinct and complex game that's similar to Yahtzee, and is also sometimes called hot dice or "Farkle," though each game has a somewhat distinct scoring system in place.
It's played with five or six dice and a cup passed between the players. The goal is to accumulate the most points in the round, or to accumulate the most points over a given number of rounds. Keepable dice include any that show 1, which are worth points, and any that show 5, which are worth 50 points. If you roll 3 of a kind say, three 2s you'll also keep those, worth that many hundred points.
In other words, three 2s would be worth points, while three 6s would be worth Return all dice that can't be counted back into the cup and roll again. The player continues rolling until he's either "kept" all the dice, or has rolled something that can't be counted like a 2, 4 and 4. On subsequent rolls, you can improve previous 3 of a kinds that you've kept.
Say you rolled three 3s on your first roll and returned the other three dice back to the cup. If you rolled a 3 on your subsequent roll, the value of your 3 of a kind would be doubled. You roll until you lose. If you crap out by rolling a 2, 3 or a 12, you lose the bet, but you keep the dice and roll again.

Asian Handicap is a type of soccer football betting that effectively gives the lesser team an advantage. This type of soccer betting removes the draw tie option for bettors and provides an edge to the underdog team. This betting system comes from Indonesia and is like the runline in baseball and the puckline in hockey. In typical soccer betting, you need to select either team to win the game outright or pick it ending in a draw scenario.
That gives you three options: win, lose or draw. Asian Handicap gives the bettor a choice between just the two teams but the favorite needs to win by a certain margin to be considered a winning bet. Unlike traditional soccer odds, the stake for Asian Handicap looks a little different. Any soccer game that sees the Asian Handicap at 0 essentially means the game is between two evenly matched teams.
Whichever team you wager on needs to win for you to win your bet. Since this type of soccer betting takes the draw out of the equation, if the teams tie, your bet is refunded. This line says the favored team Real Madrid is one-quarter of a goal better than the underdog Barca. If you wager on Los Blancos at These odds demonstrate that the favored team needs to win outright to cash your bet. Using the MLS example from above, LA Galaxy would need to win the match outright in order to be considered a winner for those who bet the favorite.
However, since Toronto FC is being given a half-goal advantage, the payout for bettors would only occur in the case of an outright win or a draw. This is likely the most complicated type of Asian Handicap betting. Odds would look something like this:. If you were to bet on the favorite, Man United, and they win by two or more goals, your wager is a winner. On the other side, the underdog Liverpool would have different outcomes for bettors. If the Reds were to draw or win outright, then you win your bet.
Those who bet on Bayern the favorite would need the team to win by two or more. If Die Bayern wins by one, it is a draw and your bet is refunded. If they lose outright, the bet is considered a loss. If the underdog team loses by two or more, your bet is a loss. A tie would see your bet refunded.
A put bet is a bet which allows players to increase or make a Pass line bet after a point has been established after come-out roll. Players may make a put bet on the Pass line and take odds immediately or increase odds behind if a player decides to add money to an already existing Pass line bet.
Put betting also allows players to increase an existing come bet for additional odds after a come point has been established or make a new come bet and take odds immediately behind if desired without a come bet point being established. If increased or added put bets on the Pass line and Come cannot be turned "Off", removed or reduced, but odds bet behind can be turned "Off", removed or reduced.
The odds bet is generally required to be the table minimum. Player cannot put bet the Don't Pass or Don't Come. Put betting may give a larger house edge over place betting unless the casino offers high odds. Put bets are better than place bets to win when betting more than 5-times odds over the flat bet portion of the put bet. Looking at two possible bets: 1 Place the six, or 2 Put the six with odds.
The player needs to be at a table which not only allows put bets, but also high-times odds, to take this advantage. This bet can only be placed on the numbers 4, 6, 8, and In order for this bet to win, the chosen number must be rolled the "hard way" as doubles before a 7 or any other non-double combination "easy way" totaling that number is rolled.
In Las Vegas casinos, this bet is generally working, including when no point has been established, unless the player specifies otherwise. In other casinos such as those in Atlantic City , hard ways are not working when the point is off unless the player requests to have it working on the come out roll.
Like single-roll bets, hard way bets can be lower than the table minimum; however, the maximum bet allowed is also lower than the table maximum. The minimum hard way bet can be a minimum one unit. The maximum bet is based on the maximum allowed win from a single roll. Easy way is not a specific bet offered in standard casinos, but a term used to define any number combination which has two ways to roll. For example, 6—4, 4—6 would be a "10 easy". The 4, 6, 8 or 10 can be made both hard and easy ways.
Betting point numbers which pays off on easy or hard rolls of that number or single-roll "hop" bets e. A player can choose either the 6 or 8 being rolled before the shooter throws a seven. These wagers are usually avoided by experienced craps players since they pay even money while a player can make place bets on the 6 or the 8, which pay more The bets are located in the corners behind the pass line, and bets may be placed directly by players. In addition place bets are usually not working, except by agreement, when the shooter is "coming out" i.
Single-roll proposition bets are resolved in one dice roll by the shooter. Most of these are called "service bets", and they are located at the center of most craps tables. Only the stickman or a dealer can place a service bet. Single-roll bets can be lower than the table minimum, but the maximum bet allowed is also lower than the table maximum. The lowest single-roll bet can be a minimum one unit bet. Single bets are always working by default unless the player specifies otherwise.
The bets include:. The stickman places this bet on the line dividing the 2 and 12 bets. The combine payout is on craps and on 11 yo. Another method of calculating the payout is to divide the total bet in half. The player would receive minus half the total bet payout on half the total bet for craps and minus half the total bet payout on half the total bet for 11 yo. Both methods of calculation yield the same result so either method can be used.
If a player wishes to take the bet down after a win the player would receive the whole bet not half even though only one of the two bets can win per roll. One of the two bets will always lose, the other may win. Any seven: A single roll bet which wins if the shooter rolls a 7 with payout. This bet is also nicknamed Big Red, since the 7 on its betting space on the layout is usually large and red, and it is considered bad luck [ by whom?
Horn: This is a bet that involves betting on 1 unit each for 2, 3, 11 and 12 at the same time for the next roll. The bet is actually four separate bets, and pays off depending on which number is actually rolled. The combined payout is for 2, 12 and for 3, Each individual bet has the same payout as a single bet on the specific numbers, for 2 and 12 minus the other three bets, for 3 and 11 minus the other three bets.
If a player wins the bet he can take down all four bets instead of a single bet even though only one bet can win per roll. Many players, in order to eliminate the confusion of tossing four chips to the center of the table or having change made while bets are being placed, will make a five-unit Horn High bet, which is a four-way bet with the extra unit going to one specific number.
Horn bets are generally required to be in multiples of 4 or 5 with the minimum bet being 4 times the minimum unit allowed. Whirl or World: A five-unit bet that is a combination of a horn and any-seven bet, with the idea that if a seven is rolled the bet is a push, because the money won on the seven is lost on the horn portions of the bet.
The combine odds are on the 2, 12, on the 3, 11, and a push on the 7. The minimum bet is five of the minimum units. On the Hop, Hop or Hopping: A single roll bet on any particular combination of the two dice on the next roll including combinations whose sum is 7 e. For example, if you bet on "5 and 1" on the hop, you are betting that the next roll will have a 5 on one die and a 1 on the other die. The bet pays on easy ways same as a bet on 3 or Hard ways hop pays e.
The true odds are and , resulting in a house edge of When presented, hop bets are located at the center of the craps layout with the other proposition bets. If hop bets are not on the craps layout, they still may be bet on by players but they become the responsibility of the boxman to book the bet. Sometimes players may request to hop a whole number. In this case the money on the bet different combinations.
For example, if a player says "hop the tens" 6—4, 5—5, 4—6 the player must give the dealer an even number bet so it can be divided among the hard and easy ways. If a player wishes to "hop the sevens" there would be three different combinations and six possible ways to roll a 7 6—1, 5—2, 4—3, 3—4, 2—5, 1—6 therefore the player should bet in multiples of 3 so the bet can be divided among each combination with a payout minus the other two bets, otherwise if players does not bet in multiples of 3, they would specific which combination has additional units.
Field: This bet is a wager that one of the numbers 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, or 12 will appear on the next roll of the dice. This bet typically pays more or if 2 or 12 is rolled, and if 3, 4, 9, 10 or 11 is rolled. The Field bet is a "Self-Service" Bet. Unlike the other proposition bets which are handled by the dealers or stickman, the field bet is placed directly by the player.
Players identify their Field bets by placing them in the Field area directly in front of them or as close to their position as possible. Fire Bet: Before the shooter begins, some casinos will allow a bet known as a fire bet to be placed. As different individual points are made by the shooter, they will be marked on the craps layout with a fire symbol.
The first three points will not pay out on the fire bet, but the fourth, fifth and sixth will pay out at increasing odds. The fourth point pays at to-1, the fifth point pays at to-1 and the 6th point pays at to Note that the points must all be different numbers for them to count towards the fire bet.
For example, a shooter who successfully hits a point of 10 twice will only garner credit for the first one on the fire bet. Players must hit the established point in order for it to count toward the fire bet. The payout is determine by the number of points which have been established and hit after the shooter sevens out.
These bets pay for-1, for a house advantage of 7. This pays for-1, for a house edge of 7. For all three wagers, the order in which the numbers are hit does not matter. Whenever a seven is hit, including on the come out roll, all bonus bets lose, the bonus board is reset, and new bonus bets may be placed.
A player may wish to make multiple different bets. If one of the bets win the dealer may automatically replenish the losing bet with profits from the winning bet. In this example, if the shooter rolls a hard 8 pays , the horn loses.
If the player does not want the bet replenished, he or she should request any or all bets be taken down. A working bet is a live bet. Bets may also be on the board, but not in play and therefore not working. Pass line and come bets are always working meaning the chips are in play and the player is therefore wagering live money. Other bets may be working or not working depending whether a point has been established or player's choice.
Place and buy bets are working by default when a point is established and not working when the point is off unless the player specifies otherwise. Lay bets are always working even if a point has not been established unless the player requests otherwise. At any time, a player may wish to take any bet or bets out of play. The dealer will put an "Off" button on the player's specific bet or bets; this allows the player to keep his chips on the board without a live wager.
For example, if a player decides not to wager a place bet mid-roll but wishes to keep the chips on the number, he or she may request the bet be "not working" or "Off". The chips remain on the table, but the player cannot win from or lose chips which are not working. The opposite is also allowed. By default place and buy bets are not working without an established point; a player may wish to wager chips before a point has been established.
In this case, the player would request the bet be working in which the dealer will place an "On" button on the specified chips. The probability of dice combinations determine the odds of the payout. The following chart shows the dice combinations needed to roll each number.
The two and twelve are the hardest to roll since only one combination of dice is possible. The game of craps is built around the dice roll of seven, since it is the most easily rolled dice combination. The expected value of all bets is usually negative, such that the average player will always lose money. This is because the house always sets the paid odds to below the actual odds. However, this "free odds" bet cannot be made independently, so the expected value of the entire bet, including odds, is still negative.
Since there is no correlation between die rolls, there is normally no possible long-term winning strategy in craps. There are occasional promotional variants that provide either no house edge or even a player edge. One example is a field bet that pays on 12 and on either 3 or This is sometimes seen at casinos running limited-time incentives, in jurisdictions or gaming houses that require the game to be fair, or in layouts for use in informal settings using play money.
No casino currently runs a craps table with a bet that yields a player edge full-time. Maximizing the size of the odds bet in relation to the line bet will reduce, but never eliminate the house edge, and will increase variance. Most casinos have a limit on how large the odds bet can be in relation to the line bet, with single, double, and five times odds common. Some casinos offer 3—4—5 odds, referring to the maximum multiple of the line bet a player can place in odds for the points of 4 and 10, 5 and 9, and 6 and 8, respectively.
During promotional periods, a casino may even offer x odds bets, which reduces the house edge to almost nothing, but dramatically increases variance, as the player will be betting in large betting units. Since several of the multiple roll bets pay off in ratios of fractions on the dollar, it is important that the player bets in multiples that will allow a correct payoff in complete dollars.
Normally, payoffs will be rounded down to the nearest dollar, resulting in a higher house advantage. These bets include all place bets, taking odds, and buying on numbers 6, 8, 5, and 9, as well as laying all numbers. These variants depend on the casino and the table, and sometimes a casino will have different tables that use or omit these variants and others. When craps is played in a casino, all bets have a house advantage.
There may be players who are lucky and get ahead for a period of time, but in the long run these winning streaks are eroded away. One can slow, but not eliminate, one's average losses by only placing bets with the smallest house advantage.
The place bets and buy bets differ from the pass line and come line, in that place bets and buy bets can be removed at any time, since, while they are multi-roll bets, their odds of winning do not change from roll to roll, whereas pass line bets and come line bets are a combination of different odds on their first roll and subsequent rolls.
The first roll of a pass line bet is advantage for the player 8 wins, 4 losses , but it's "paid for" by subsequent rolls that are at the same disadvantage to the player as the don't pass bets were at an advantage. As such, they cannot profitably let you take down the bet after the first roll. This bet generally has a higher house edge than place betting, unless the casino offers high odds.
Conversely, you can take back pick up a don't pass or don't come bet after the first roll, but this cannot be recommended, because you already endured the disadvantaged part of the combination — the first roll. On that come-out roll, you win just 3 times 2 and 3 , while losing 8 of them 7 and 11 and pushing one 12 out of the 36 possible rolls.
On the other 24 rolls that become a point, your don't pass bet is now to your advantage by 4 and 10 , 5 and 9 and 6 and 8. However, players can still make standard lay bets odds on any of the point numbers 4,5,6,8,9, Among these, and the remaining numbers and possible bets, there are a myriad of systems and progressions that can be used with many combinations of numbers.
An important alternative metric is house advantage per roll rather than per bet , which may be expressed in loss per hour. Besides the rules of the game itself, a number of formal and informal rules are commonly applied in the table form of Craps, especially when played in a casino. To reduce the potential opportunity for switching dice by sleight-of-hand , players are not supposed to handle the dice with more than one hand such as shaking them in cupped hands before rolling nor take the dice past the edge of the table.
If a player wishes to change shooting hands, they may set the dice on the table, let go, then take them with the other hand. When throwing the dice, the player is expected to hit the farthest wall at the opposite end of the table these walls are typically augmented with pyramidal structures to ensure highly unpredictable bouncing after impact.
Casinos will sometimes allow a roll that does not hit the opposite wall as long as the dice are thrown past the middle of the table; a very short roll will be nullified as a "no roll". The dice may not be slid across the table and must be tossed. Players are generally asked not to throw the dice above a certain height such as the eye level of the dealers.
This is both for the safety of those around the table, and to eliminate the potential use of such a throw as a distraction device in order to cheat. Dice are still considered "in play" if they land on players' bets on the table, the dealer's working stacks, on the marker puck, or with one die resting on top of the other.
The roll is invalid if either or both dice land in the boxman's bank, the stickman's bowl where the extra three dice are kept between rolls , or in the rails around the top of the table where players chips are kept. If one or both dice hits a player or dealer and rolls back onto the table, the roll counts as long as the person being hit did not intentionally interfere with either of the dice, though some casinos will rule "no roll" for this situation.
If one or both leave the table, it is also a "no roll", and the dice may either be replaced or examined by the boxman and returned to play. Shooters may wish to "set" the dice to a particular starting configuration before throwing such as showing a particular number or combination, stacking the dice, or spacing them to be picked up between different fingers , but if they do, they are often asked to be quick about it so as not to delay the game.
Some casinos disallow such rituals to speed up the pace of the game. In most casinos, players are not allowed to hand anything directly to dealers, and vice versa. Items such as cash, checks, and chips are exchanged by laying them down on the table; for example, when "buying in" paying cash for chips , players are expected to place the cash on the layout: the dealer will take it and then place the chips in front of the player.
This rule is enforced in order to allow the casino to easily monitor and record all transfers via overhead surveillance cameras, and to reduce the opportunity for cheating via sleight-of-hand. Most casinos prohibit "call bets", and may have a warning such as "No Call Bets" printed on the layout to make this clear.
This means a player may not call out a bet without also placing the corresponding chips on the table. Such a rule reduces the potential for misunderstanding in loud environments, as well as disputes over the amount that the player intended to bet after the outcome has been decided.
Some casinos choose to allow call bets once players have bought-in. When allowed, they are usually made when a player wishes to bet at the last second, immediately before the dice are thrown, to avoid the risk of obstructing the roll. Craps is among the most social and most superstitious of all gambling games, which leads to an enormous variety of informal rules of etiquette that players may be expected to follow.
Tipping the dealers is universal and expected in Craps. As in most other casino games, a player may simply place or toss chips onto the table and say, "For the dealers", "For the crew", etc. In craps, it is also common to place a bet for the dealers.
This is usually done one of three ways: by placing an ordinary bet and simply declaring it for the dealers, as a "two-way", or "on top". A "Two-Way" is a bet for both parties: for example, a player may toss in two chips and say "Two Way Hard Eight", which will be understood to mean one chip for the player and one chip for the dealers. Players may also place a stack of chips for a bet as usual, but leave the top chip off-center and announce "on top for the dealers".
In some cases, players may also tip each other, for example as a show of gratitude to the thrower for a roll on which they win a substantial bet. Craps players routinely practice a wide range of superstitious behaviors, and may expect or demand these from other players as well. Most prominently, it is universally considered bad luck to say the word "seven" after the "come-out", a roll of 7 is a loss for "pass" bets.
Dealers themselves often make significant efforts to avoid calling out the number. When necessary, participants may refer to seven with a "nickname" such as "Big Red" or just "Red" , "the S-word", etc. Although no wagering system can consistently beat casino games based on independent trials such as craps, that does not stop gamblers from believing in them.
One of the best known systems is the Martingale System. In this strategy, the gambler doubles his bet after every loss. After a win, the bet is reset to the original bet. The theory is that the first win would recover all previous losses plus win a profit equal to the original stake.
Other systems depend on the gambler's fallacy, which in craps terms is the belief that past dice rolls influence the probabilities of future dice rolls. For example, the gambler's fallacy indicates that a craps player should bet on eleven if an eleven has not appeared or has appeared too often in the last 20 rolls.
In practice this can be observed as players respond to a roll such as a Hard Six with an immediate wager on the Hard Six. Even if the dice are actually biased toward particular results "loaded" , each roll is still independent of all the previous ones. The common term to describe this is "dice have no memory". Another approach is to "set" the dice in a particular orientation, and then throw them in such a manner that they do not tumble randomly.
The theory is that given exactly the same throw from exactly the same starting configuration, the dice will tumble in the same way and therefore show the same or similar values every time. Casinos take steps to prevent this. The dice are usually required to hit the back wall of the table, which is normally faced with an angular texture such as pyramids, making controlled spins more difficult.
There has been no independent evidence that such methods can be successfully applied in a real casino. Bank craps is a variation of the original craps game and is sometimes known as Las Vegas Craps. This variant is quite popular in Nevada gambling houses, and its availability online has now made it a globally played game. Bank craps uses a special table layout and all bets must be made against the house. In Bank Craps, the dice are thrown over a wire or a string that is normally stretched a few inches from the table's surface.
Generally, if the word "craps" is used without any modifier, it can be inferred to mean this version of the game, to which most of this article refers. Crapless craps, also known as Bastard Craps, is a simple version of the original craps game, and is normally played as an online private game.
The biggest difference between crapless craps and original craps, is that the shooter person throwing the dice is at a far greater disadvantage and has a house edge of 5. Another difference is that this is one of the craps games in which a player can bet on rolling a 2, 3, 11 or 12 before a 7 is thrown. In crapless craps, 2 and 12 have odds of and have a house edge of 7. New York Craps is one of the variations of craps played mostly in the Eastern coast of the US, true to its name.
History states that this game was actually found and played in casinos in Yugoslavia, the UK and the Bahamas. In this craps variant, the house edge is greater than Las Vegas Craps or Bank craps. The table layout is also different, and is called a double-end-dealer table.
This variation is different from the original craps game in several ways, but the primary difference is that New York craps doesn't allow Come or Don't Come bets. New York Craps Players bet on box numbers like 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or In order to get around California laws barring the payout of a game being directly related to the roll of dice, Indian reservations have adapted the game to substitute cards for dice.
In one variation, there are no dice at all. Two shoes are used, each containing some number of regular card decks that have been stripped down to just the Aces and deuces through sixes. The boxman simply deals one card from each shoe and that is the roll on which bets are settled. In a similar variation, cards representing dice are dealt directly from a continuous shuffling machine CSM.
Typically, the CSM will hold approximately cards, or 44 sets of 1 through 6 spot cards. Two cards are dealt from the CSM for each roll. The game is played exactly as regular craps, but the roll distribution of the remaining cards in the CSM is slightly skewed from the normal symmetric distribution of dice.
Even if the dealer were to shuffle each roll back into the CSM, the effect of buffering a number of cards in the chute of the CSM provides information about the skew of the next roll. Analysis shows this type of game is biased towards the don't pass and don't come bets. To replicate the original dice odds exactly without dice or possibility of card-counting, another scheme uses two shuffle machines with just one deck of Ace through 6 each. Each machine selects one of the 6 cards at random and this is the roll.
The selected cards are replaced and the decks are reshuffled for the next roll. In this game variation, one red deck and one blue deck of six cards each A through 6 , and a red die and a blue die are used. Each deck is shuffled separately, usually by machine. Each card is then dealt onto the layout, into the 6 red and 6 blue numbered boxes. The shooter then shoots the dice. The red card in the red-numbered box corresponding to the red die, and the blue card in the blue-numbered box corresponding to the blue die are then turned over to form the roll on which bets are settled.
Another variation uses a red and a blue deck of 36 custom playing cards each. Each card has a picture of a two-die roll on it — from 1—1 to 6—6. The shooter shoots what looks like a red and a blue die, called "cubes". They are numbered such that they can never throw a pair, and that the blue one will show a higher value than the red one exactly half the time.
One such scheme could be on the red die and on the blue die. One card is dealt from the red deck and one is dealt from the blue deck. The shooter throws the "cubes" and the color of the cube that is higher selects the color of the card to be used to settle bets.
On one such table, an additional one-roll prop bet was offered: If the card that was turned over for the "roll" was either 1—1 or 6—6, the other card was also turned over. If the other card was the "opposite" 6—6 or 1—1, respectively of the first card, the bet paid for this proposition. And additional variation uses a single set of 6 cards, and regular dice.
The roll of the dice maps to the card in that position, and if a pair is rolled, then the mapped card is used twice, as a pair. Recreational or informal playing of craps outside of a casino is referred to as street craps or private craps.
The most notable difference between playing street craps and bank craps is that there is no bank or house to cover bets in street craps. Players must bet against each other by covering or fading each other's bets for the game to be played. If money is used instead of chips and depending on the laws of where it is being played, street craps can be an illegal form of gambling. There are many variations of street craps. The simplest way is to either agree on or roll a number as the point, then roll the point again before you roll a seven.
Unlike more complex proposition bets offered by casinos, street craps has more simplified betting options. The shooter is required to make either a Pass or a Don't Pass bet if he wants to roll the dice. Another player must choose to cover the shooter to create a stake for the game to continue. If there are several players, the rotation of the player who must cover the shooter may change with the shooter comparable to a blind in poker.
The person covering the shooter will always bet against the shooter. For example, if the shooter made a "Pass" bet, the person covering the shooter would make a "Don't Pass" bet to win. Due to the random nature of the game, in popular culture a "crapshoot" is often used to describe an action with an unpredictable outcome.
The prayer or invocation "Baby needs a new pair of shoes! Floating craps is an illegal operation of craps.
