A Guide to Playing Craps

July 2nd, 2011

Craps is an online casino game that doesn’t seem to get as much exposure as its more popular counterparts.  In a land-based casino the typical ambiance surrounding craps would be of a high intensity, with people shouting at the craps tables raising the excitement levels to the roof.

Contrary to popular belief, craps as a whole is not a difficult game to learn. And now that it has been taken into an online arena it’s even easier than before. Most casinos offering craps will have sufficient information, tips and strategies on the game available for players to get up to speed in no time at all.

A craps table generally will have place for a maximum of twenty players. There are various bets to make when playing casino craps such as: pass line bet, come bet, odds on come bet, don’t pass line bet, odds on pass line bet, don’t come bet, field bet, Big Six/Eight bets, place bet and proposition bets.

If you choose to play craps at an online casino, the game may differ slightly to the conventional land-based style due to the fact that you won’t physically be throwing the dice. However the basics of the game will be exactly the same. You can refer to the immense amount of information and guidelines available on online casino sites to understand the workings of the game and to develop a solid strategy before you start wagering money on your bets. The bonuses and promotions only found in online casino craps games are also bound to up your winnings dramatically.

The online craps world holds certain advantages over the land-based variety where as the games are a lot faster and technology creates a visual experience as well as a gaming experience for players to enjoy.

The only thing missing for players that choose to play craps in an online casino is the sensation of actually throwing the dice and waiting for an outcome.

The following are some interesting superstitions surrounding the craps dice and how players use them:

  • Land-based casinos adhere to rigid rules regarding the dice. Each dice can only be used for 8 hours until it is replaced.
  • Players may only use one hand to throw the dice.
  • Should the dice fall off the table, they must be inspected before they are place back.
  • Some players tap the table gently for luck before tossing.
  • Other players puff on the dice for luck. No spitting though please.

There are many tossing/throwing styles that any craps enthusiast is bound to encounter over time. Whatever you style may be, remember that as all other casino games are, craps is just a game and players should not become too emotionally invested in it.
