posted in: Craps

Craps is a game of money that comes from the United States. It is played with two dice, usually in casinos.

### Dice

You have to roll two six-sided dice. All two opposite faces of each of the two dice should always be equal to 7: 1 and 6, 2 and 5, 3 and 4. The dots are printed on the dice, they are not written, unlike traditional dice.

### Dealers

For craps, there are four dealers:

• a table chief who controls the flow of the game,

• a first dealer that helps players to place bets

• a second dealer that pays the winning bets and collect losing bets,

• and finally the stickman. This is the one who directs the game, picks up the dice with the stick to give the rolling player. He announced the winning run.

### Points

Craps, consider:

• either the total points of the dice,

• either specific figures (craps, hards ways, 11, 7)

The sum of the faces of the dice that are 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10 are called “points.”

• Craps: refers to a total which there is only one way to get it: (2 = 1 + 1), (3 = 1 + 2), (12 = 6 + 6)

• Hard Ways: are doubles (2 + 2), (3 + 3), (4 + 4), (5 + 5), except double 1 and 6 which are craps

• Pass (11): can be obtained only in one way: 6 + 5 = 5 + 6

• Natural (7): is the total that can be obtained the greatest number of times in different ways: (4 + 3), (2 + 5), (6 + 1), but also (3 + 4), (5 + 2) and (6 + 1), or a chance of six from total.

### Goal of the game

The pitcher must first roll the dice. Before the first roll, the point is off. So you win with 7 or 11 and lose with 2, 3 or 12. By getting a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, the point will be placed on this figure. It must therefore repeat this figure by 7 to win. The pitcher stops to launch after obtaining his point ahead of 7 only. However, when the point is on, you can bet on other numbers (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10), your bet will be withdrawn only if the pitcher throws a 7 when the point is on (commonly called Seven out). If the point is off and pitcher throws a 7, you will not lose your bets on the numbers.
