Craps, also historically known as Seven Eleven, is a dice game. It is played on a craps table, typically shown from above when playing at an online casino.
Two dice are used for each game. The idea is to bet on the outcome of one or more rolls of those dice.
Bank craps is the most common form of the game found online. Other variations may also crop up, such as New York craps or low-limit craps.
The house edge varies depending on the type of bet you select. A pass line bet is the most important bet in the game. The shooter (dice thrower) must try and achieve a roll of either 7 or 11. If they do, they win the bet. If they roll 2, 3, or 12, they lose. The house edge for the pass line bet are 1.41%.
Some wagers, such as pass odds or don’t pass odds, have a theoretical 0% house edge. However, that wager must be possible for this to occur. The largest house edge is usually for any 7, which pays four to one and attracts a house edge of 16.9%.
Newcomers often find craps complicated to understand. Learning the different wagers and how to play the game makes things easier. Playing a demo first is a smart way to learn.
