Craps is an exciting and popular casino game, which draws a number of players both at online and offline venues. Players generally play the game on a special craps table and use two dice. The design of the craps dice followed certain rules and high standards. Nowadays many manufacturers offer a variety of dice sets and craps games.
Craps games are characterized by the large house edge. House edges are the difference between the actual winnings and the expected losses. It refers to the difference between the actual line loss/winnings and the expected line loss/wins. Hence a high house edge means that there is very less chance of getting a win. This makes playing craps on most online casinos very risky and exciting at the same time.
One of the biggest differences between craps and other casino games is the pay out. In other casino games the players win when they reach the losing end of the pot. In craps the players stand to lose money when they hit the winning ticket. However, the pay outs do not depend on the outcome of the previous draws. The casino game developers keep the jackpot consistent across all types of craps games.
When a player is about to throw, he has to look at the present situation and decide whether he needs to throw or not. There are two types of craps rules, one is called the pre-dice and the other is called the post-dice. Both ways the craps players need to wait for the outcome of the throws before they decide to throw or not.
The first step of the craps rules is to determine the point spreads. When a player is about to throw he needs to put a bet on the number he would like to hit. If the number he chooses comes out then he has to put another bet of the same value on the same side of the table. This is called the first roll. The second roll is the second best throw, after the first roll.
After all the players have rolled the dice, the shooter gets to start dealing. The shooter will announce a number to be thrown and then everyone needs to buy that many dices from the dealer in order to make the same throw. After this is done the shooter will put his money in the pot and will start counting the number of dice up to the number he rolled the dice for.
