Rolling the dice

Craps paytable sheet

Each player/participant takes turns in rolling the dice. The player throwing the dice is called a shooter. Everyone places bets on the same roll of the dice, regardless if they’re the shooter or not. The shooter keeps throwing the dice until he rolls a seven at the wrong time (also known as a “Sevens Out”).

Since craps is a game of rounds, the first roll is called a Come Out roll. A round can last either one roll or else a whole bunch of rolls, depending on what is rolled out. The players take turns in rolling the two dice. The shooter can keep on rolling the dice until they get a losing combination.

In short:

  • Place a bet on any area of the table. Every click on the area adds a chip to the bet.
  • Click on the “Roll” button
  • Dice are rolled out and you can see the result. To play again, repeat the above process.
