Craps

CrapsThere are many theories as to where Craps originated and many believe that it is based on a French game called Crabes while others believe it is based on Hazard, which is an old English game. Around the turn of the 18th and 19th century, a Louisiana gambler introduced Craps to New Orleans, Louisiana. Craps is one of the simplest and easiest online casino games to master. It consists of two basic bets, pass line and don’t pass line.

 

In addition, you also get more than 40 other bets, and it is recommended that you steer away from these more complicated bets. Your best options are to concentrate on Pass/don’t pass bets as well as come/don’t come which have a house edge of 1.40%. The only confusing aspect of Craps is the table layout. However, you roll the dice and typically aim for 7 or 11.

 

The craps numbers that mean you lose are 2, 3 and 12. Numbers 4, 5 and 6 are neutral which does not add to a win or lose and are known as the craps point. Craps might sound complicated; however, all online games have their own set of rules, but you will find this one easy to master.
