Know your Craps Bet Options

Online Craps involves a number of different bets you can make. Some of the bets are single roll and are decided by the next dice roll. Some bets are multi-roll and require a number of rolls before the outcome of your bets are determined. Certain bets may only be made on certain rolls of the dice.

The Come Out Roll is the first roll in any craps round. It is made when the puck is off. If a 2, 3, 7, 11, or 12 is rolled, the round ends immediately. If the dice totals 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, then the point is established. When a point is established, an “ON” puck is placed on that point. Dice are then rolled continuously until the same point is rolled or a 7.

The Pass Line Bet is placed on the pass line area before the come out roll. If you roll a 7 or 11, you win and the round is complete. If you roll a 2, 3, or 13, the bet is lost. Any other number becomes the point. You win the best if the point is rolled before a 7 and it pays even money (1:1).

A Don’t Pass Line Bet is the opposite of the previous bet. If a 2 or 3 is rolled, the bet wins. If a 7 or 11 is rolled, the bet loses. If the come out roll is a 12, the don’t pass bet is returned to the player in a push. Any other number establishes a point and the puck is turned to “on” and marks the point. You win if a 7 is rolled first and pays even money (1:1).

To place a Come Bet, you put chips in the box “come.” If the initial roll is a 7 or 11, the bet instantly wins. If the next roll is a 2, 3, or 12, the bet is lost. If the shooter rolls a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, the come point number is established. Once the point is established, if the shooter rolls the point number again before rolling a 7, the bet is won and pays out even money (1:1). If a 7 is rolled first, the bet is lost.

A Don’t Come Bet is the opposite of a come bet. It is placed after the come out roll. If the shooter rolls a 2 or 3 on the initial roll after the bet has been placed, the bet wins. If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11, the bet loses. If a 12 is rolled, the bet is returned in a push. If the roll is a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, a point is established. The bet is placed on the upper left of the point number box. Once the point is established, the bet will win even money (1:1) if a 7 is rolled and lose if the point is rolled.

An Odds Bet is a backup on a pass line, don’t pass, come, and don’t come bet. It requires an extra wager but can improve the payout of the original bet. The maximum is three times the original bet.

Pass line odds and come play odds pay:

Number Rolled Pays
4, 1 2 to 1
5, 9 3 to 2
6, 8 6 to 5

Don’t pass and don’t come odds pay:

Number Rolled Pays
4, 10 1 to 2
5, 9 2 to 3
6, 8 5 to 6

Any unresolved odds bets can be removed from the table during the play.
