Tips to Remember When Playing Craps

Casino Comments Off

Craps is one of the most popular table games at The Mill Casino. Many of our guests enjoy the game because it is not difficult to learn, and you don’t have to know everything to play and have fun. With a little bit of research and practice beforehand, you will soon be playing like a pro!

You want to start by learning a few basic bets and work your way up. Here are some basic things to remember:

  1. Craps is played with a pair of dice; each person at the table has a chance to be the “shooter.”
  2. When the Stickperson indicates it is your turn to shoot, you must bet on one of two basic bets: A Pass Line bet, or a Don’t Pass bet.
  3. The Stickperson will then have you choose two of five dice. Pick them up with the hand you use for throwing (you may only touch the dice with one hand) and hit the end of the table with both dice.

What happens from here depends on the dice.

• If you throw a 7 or 11 and you are betting on the Pass Line, you “Win.”
• If you throw a Crap (2, 3, or 12), Don’t Pass bets win and Pass Line bets are taken.
• If you throw anything other than craps, 7 or 11, then that number becomes your “point” (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10)
• You must repeat the point before a 7 to win.
• Once the point has been established, you continue to shoot the dice until you make your point or 7 out.

All bets are made with gaming chips, purchased at the game. Some bets are made directly by each player (by setting your chips on specific areas marked on the table. Other bets are made by passing chips to your dealer or the stickperson. You will figure this out as you play.
