Useful Craps Terms

  1. Betting Right and Betting Wrong. These are rules that were introduced to eliminate dice tempering. Casino game players can bet with or against the dice. These bets are placed in the Pass and Don’t Pass area of the betting
  2. Pass line and Don’t Pass bets. Players are required to place bets on whether the dice will pass or win. The pass line bet is determined by the came out roll.
  3. The come out roll is when the shooter rolls the dice to determine whether the pass bets win or it loses.
  4. Shooter, this is the player who has the responsibility of rolling the dice. This player throws the dice against the opposite wall. The outcome of the dice roll can be a Natural or Craps. These are the best and worst scenarios respectively, there are other outcomes besides these two.
  5. Natural and Craps: A Natural is a dice outcome of 7 or 11 in the first dice roll of the game. When this happens the Pass line bet Wins. Craps is when the Pass line bet losses, so appropriately named. Unless if you are the Wrong Bettor. A dice outcome of 2, 3 or 12 is craps.
  6. Point: a point is a digit that is played in the come-out roll, it is any number excluding 2, 3, 7, 11, and 12. That numeral will then be the pointing digit for the round of the game.
  7. Don’t Come Bet: betting that seven will show before the point is recognised again.
