There are – depending on the variant and the game table – certain side bets and side bets that you can play. Most of these bets can also be played in craps online.
In the pass bet, you bet that the shooter will win, i.e. the dicer. This form is similar to the original craps. In order for the shooter to win, he must roll a “natural” in his first roll, i.e. a 7 or 11, or make a “point” and hit the same point total again in the following roll.
Don’t Pass bet
Is this the opposite of the pass bet? More or less. The Don’t Pass bet loses when the Pass bet wins.
So Don’t Pass wins when:
- The Shooter in the Comeout Roll (in the first roll) rolls a 2 or 3 – a crap.
- The Shooter in the Comeout Roll makes a Point, but fails to roll the eye total again before a 7 falls.
- If the Shooter rolls a Crap 12 on the first roll, it’s a tie. So the bet is neither won nor lost.
The come bet is basically the same as the pass bet, except that it is placed later. It can be placed after the first roll, if a point/draw was rolled there.
Don’t Come bet
The Don’t Come bet is also bettable in craps if the first roll was a point. The Don’t Come bet is the equivalent of the Don’t Pass bet and the opposite of the Come bet. It wins if the shooter rolls a 2 or 3.
Hardways bets are a bet on a very specific dice combination – always 2 of the same dice. For example, you can bet on a four of a kind. If you win the bet, you will be paid nine times your stake. Alternatively, these double bets are also called hard bets.
You can only win with a four of a kind, and you can always roll the dice again. You lose if you roll either a 7 or an 8, but do not roll a four of a kind (for example, a 5 plus 3).
Taking the Odds
There are several Taking the Odds bets you can play in craps: 4 and 10, 5 and 9, or 6 and 8. The latter is also called the Big 6 and 8. You are betting that the respective selected eye sum will be rolled before the 7. These bets are also called take the odds bets, because there is no house advantage.
Place bets are an integral part of the craps table and can be played both in the casino and in the online casino.
Laying the Odds
The Lay the Odds bet is the exact opposite: you bet that a 7 will be rolled before the other numbers mentioned.
This bet also has no house advantage, unless you play with 5% commission.
Place bets are analogous to Place the Odds bets, where you play on a certain eye value that should come before the 7. The numbers 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 are playable and have different payout values.
The Place Bets are an integral part of the craps table and can be played both in the casino and in the online casino.
One Roll Bets
In One Roll Bets, you can bet on what the sum of the eyes will be in the next roll. The bet is definitely decided with one roll.
The odds and winnings differ depending on which bet you choose. Some of the bets that can be played in these Craps One Roll Bets are as follows:
- Any Crap: Players bet on the fact that in the next round the sum of the eyes will fall 2, 3 or 12.
- Hi-Lo: Players bet that either an eye sum of 2 or 12 will come in the next roll.
- Crap 12: Players bet that the next roll will be 12.
- Eleven: Players bet that the next roll will be 11.
- Seven/ Any 7: Players bet that the next roll will be 7.
- Crap 3: Players bet that the next roll will be 3.
- Crap 2: Bet that the next roll will be 2.
- Field Bet: Bet that 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 or 12 will come.
