Things become interesting if our initial shooter rolls 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. If you land one of these numbers, it becomes the round’s point number. This implies it is the goal number throughout the game. When the shooter sets the point, the dealer will place a ‘On’ button in the table portion corresponding to that number.

Craps bet types

We’ve previously highlighted a few craps bets, but now we’ll go further. Keep in mind that different casinos may provide extra or fewer bets than those listed below.

Don’t pass line bets

These wagers are made on the outcome of the come-out roll. Shooter hits a natural or sets the point number. Don’t Pass wins if the shooter gets 2, 3, or 12. Remember that the shooter is the only player who must make a wager before the come-out roll. The odds of winning Pass and Don’t Pass bets vary. A Pass bet has a 251:244 probability of winning and pays out even money (1:1). Don’t Pass has a 976:949 probability of winning and pays 1:1.

Come or Go betting

Come/Don’t Come betting is almost identical to Pass/Don’t Pass betting, except that it deals with the results of throws made after the come-out roll. These bets may only be made once the point total is known.

The Come bet is made on the point number before a 7. The round ends if the shooter scores a 7 or the craps numbers. This bet wins if the shooter hits the number. This number becomes the Come bet point and the player can place bets on it if the shooter lands it. The odds of a Come bet winning are 251:244. This bet pays out at par. With a Don’t Come wager, you’re hoping for a 7 or craps before the shooter hits that point number. Any of these numbers before the point number wins. The reward depends on the point total. The bet pays 2:1 if the point is 4 or 10. A 5 or 9 pays 3:2. Finally, a 6 or 8 pays 6:5.

Proposition bets

Proposition bets are placed in the table’s middle rectangular area. The table below shows the six typical proposition bets.

Hardways

To comprehend hardway bets, we must first comprehend hard vs soft numbers. Take 6 as an example. A shooter can get 6 by hitting 1 and 5, 2 and 4, or 3 and 3. The hard 6 is made up of two equal numbers, 3 and 3. Hard 4 (2 and 2), 8 (4 and 4) and 10 (4 and 4) (5 and 5).

It must come before the soft or easy number or a 7 to win a hardway bet. Assume a player bets on a hard 6. They win if the dice show 3 and 3 before a total of 7 or any soft total of 6. Totals of 4s, 8s, 9s, etc. have no effect. The order of the supplied number’s hard and soft outcomes matters here.

Hardway payments are as follows:

- 9:1 hard 6 and 8
- 7:1 for hard 4 10 pts

Place bets are made on 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10. A player wins a placing bet on 5 if the 5 comes before a 7. Place bet odds are as follows:

- 7:6 on 6 and 8
- 7:5 on 5 and 9
- 9:5 on 4 and 10

Lose bets

This time, we’ll examine into Place to Lose betting. Yes, these are the reverse of Place bets! This wager is that the number 7 will come first (another term used to describe non-point, non-craps numbers). Payout odds are as follows:

- 4:5 on 6 and 8
- 5:8 on 5 and 9
- 5:11 on 4 and 10

In other words, other bets decide whether odds bets are allowed. Odds bets are offered only after the Pass/Don’t Pass and Come/Don’t Come bets. Unlike straight bets, odds bets are indicated by adding fresh chips behind the preceding stake.

Odds bets increase the player’s original stake. Assume a player places a Don’t Come bet. If the player rolls a 7 before the point number, the odds bet wins as well. During the game, odds bets can be changed, added, or eliminated.

Bets to buy

Buy and lay bets are two related bets. Both require a commission. To place a purchase bet, the player must pay a particular sum, generally 5% of the bet value. Ordinarily, the commission isn’t

Buy bets are similar to Place bets except for the odds. Only on 4 and 10 are purchase bets always better than place bets.

Lays

Lay bets are similar to purchase bets, however the non-refundable commission is dependent on win rather than bet. Except for the fee, lay bets are similar to Place to Lose bets. When betting on 4 and 10, a lay bet is preferable.

Field wagers

It is a single-roll bet. This signifies the player is betting on the outcome of the following roll only.
