Welcome to USA Online Casino guide to playing craps at the online casino. The basics of playing craps are quite simple. The "pass-line" bet is the most common bet in the game of craps. On the come-out roll, those who bet on the pass line win if they manage to roll either a 7 (Out 7) or 11. Rolling craps is a term used to indicate that the shooter rolled either a 2, 3, or 12, in which case anyone who betted on the pass-line losses automatically.
Rolling a point is another term that indicates that the shooter rolled either a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, thus setting a point, which is the number that the shooter would have to roll again, before rolling a 7 in order to win when betting on the pass-line.
In case the shooter rolls a 7 prior to rolling the number indicated as the point it is referred to as being "sevened-out", in which case the shooter turns over the right to roll the dice to the next player standing to his left (clockwise order), therefore starting a new betting round.
At the beginning of every betting round, anyone of the players including the shooter may also elect to place a "don't-pass" bet. This bet is actually the opposite of betting the pass-line. Essentially, a don't-pass bet pays in case the shooter rolls a craps on the come-out roll, while you lose in the event the shooter rolls 11.
In comparison to the pass-line bet, the don't-pass bet has a lower house edge in addition to offering the same free odds once a point was set. Let's examine an example for playing craps at the casino. For argument's sake, let's assume that you bet $10 on the pass-line. In case you get a "natural" (11) on your come-out roll, you'll subsequently win $10.
