How to play online craps

Pass Line Bets
Also called the “Front Line”, this is the most popular bet at the Craps Table. A wager on the Pass Line wins if the first roll of the dice (the Come Out Roll – when no point has been established) is a 7 or 11 (known as “naturals”) and loses if a 2, 3 or 12 is rolled first. If a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 is rolled, that number becomes the Point. Once the Point has been established, to win the bet the player (or shooter) must repeat the Point before a 7 is rolled. If the Shooter rolls a 7 before the Point is repeated, the Pass Line bet loses. A winning bet is paid even money. Once the point has been established, this bet may not be removed or altered.

Don’t Pass Bets
Also called the “Back Line”, this bet is the opposite of the Pass Line bet and can only be bet on a come out roll with no point established. This bet wins if the shooter rolls a 2 or 3 on the Come Out roll and loses immediately if a 7 or 11 is rolled on the Come Out. If a 12 is rolled, it’s a tie and play continues. Once the point has been established, this bet wins if the shooter rolls a 7 before the point is repeated.

Come Bets
This bet is an extension of the pass line bet and may be wagered after the point has been established on the Come Out roll. The rules for this bet are the same as the Pass Line bet. The Come bet wins if a 7 or 11 is rolled and loses if a 2, 3, or 12 is rolled. Any other number becomes your come point and must be repeated before a 7 rolls in order to win even money. If the shooter rolls a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 after a Come Bet has been placed, the dealer will move the Come Bet from the Come area to the corresponding box for that particular number. Just as with the Pass Line bet, this wager may not be reduced or removed until play is completed. A winning wager is paid even money.

Don’t Come Bets
This bet is the opposite of the Come Bet. It may be wagered any time after the point has been established on the Come Out Roll. A first roll of 7 or 11 loses, 2 or 3 wins, and 12 is a standoff. If a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 is rolled after a Don’t Come Bet has been placed, the dealer will move the wager from the Don’t Come area to the corresponding box for that particular number. You win even money if 7 is rolled before the point is repeated.

Place Bet to Win
This is an additional bet that can be made once a point has been established. A Win wager can be made on the numbers 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. The wager wins if the place number is rolled before a 7; otherwise it loses. Pays 9 to 5 on 4 and 10, 7 to 5 on 5 and 9, and 7 to 6 on 6 and 8.

Place Bet to Lose
This is an additional bet that can be made at any time and is opposite of to Place Bet to Win. The wager wins if 7 is rolled before the place number; otherwise it loses. This pays 5 to 11 on 4 and 10, 5 to 8 on 5 and 9, and 4 to 5 on 6 and 8.

Hardway Bets
Whenever a shooter rolls doubles and the outcome is a 4, 6, 8 or 10, the shooter is said to have hit the number the “hard way,” that is, by rolling doubles. If any of these same numbers are rolled and the outcome is not doubles, the shooter is said to have hit the number the “easy way”. Example: The shooter rolls a pair of 4’s and has a Hard 8, or 8 The Hardway. Another example: The shooter rolls a 6 and 2. This is an Easy 8, or 8 The Easy Way. A Hard 10 would be a pair of 5’s, while 10 the “easy way” would be a 6 and 4. Possible Hardway bets are 4, 6, 8 or 10. A Hardway bet wins when the shooter rolls a number the Hardway. A Hardway Bet loses if the shooter rolls a number the Easy Way or if the shooter rolls a 7. Hardway 4 and 10 pay 7 to 1. Hardway 6 and 8 pay 9 to 1.

One Roll Bets
These are wagers on the outcome of a single roll of the dice. The payouts are based on the number the player chooses. The player immediately loses or wins depending on the next roll of the dice.

Field
This is a wager that the next roll will be a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 or 12. The 2 and the 12 pay double.

Any Craps
This is a wager that the next roll will be a 2, 3 or 12. Pays 7 to 1.

Any Seven
This is a wager that the next roll will be a 7. Pays 4 to 1.

Horn
This is a four-way bet that requires four chips. This is a wager that the next roll will be a 2, 3, 11 or 12. Pays 30 to 1 for the 2 or 12 and pays 15 to 1 for the 3 and 11.
