Basics of the Game
you consciously play a night of craps without being called a crab? Why
would anyone call you that anyway? Maybe because craps was once formerly
known as crabs, but although it has no real formal relation it has been
on a roll and become a part of casino culture.
For anyone familiar with the ancient Old English game of Hazard would
know that Craps is its modern and simplified version of this game.
All a casino crazed craps player needs to know how to do is
strategically roll two dice, which comes by pure luck and wager with it
and go for that great win. And aside from wagering away for the win, the
craps contender will want to also attempt to draw in the craps crowd.
The basics of the game are by far very basic. What happens is that there
is the player who actually rolls the dice this player is called the
shooter. Another craps term worth your knowledge is the first roll of a
new round called a “come-out roll.” All craps bets are based upon the
total sum of each roll and how far you will take the game – if you will
play the night away.
Craps betting cannot be bargained for and its own wagering world has
combinations that will lead to the pots of gold making you a famous,
popular and beloved craps
It’s important to know what craps come-out rolls are, such as pass the
line betting. This is when the shooter rolls as seven or an eleven. A
“craps” happens when an Ace, two, three or twelve is rolled making the
competitor a loser. Points can be scored if the player happens to roll a
four, five, six, eight, nine or ten. When craps points are scored then
the pass-line better win if rolled two times in a row, yet will lose if
the player immediately after a point rolls a seven that’s why it is
called a “seven-out.”
While the greatest experience one can find is vying away at the casino
craps table with thousands of spectators, it is important to know the
four key employees. The first is the box man who guards the pile chips
for possible cheating thieves. This character also supervises the
dealers and handles coloring out players. The second characters in the
game are two base dealers who stand on two sides of the box man. They
collect and pay bets. There is also the stickman who stands opposite the
box man from the table and announces the results with a long wooden
stick and manages the gambling wages.
There are various forms and stages of the game, which are not difficult,
but merely you as the player must go out there with composure and
confidence. You have the chance to strut down the red carpet to success
down to the creative craps table, take the two dice and roll to great
winnings. Draw in that crowd and roll everyone away.
