Craps – a Game Rich in History

Craps is a game played with two dice. The objective of the game is to predict which number will appear on the roll. All players place a bet, and then one of the players, called a shooter, rolls the dice. The bets can be wagered on the pass line or the don’t pass line. There are three possible outcomes for the first roll of the dice. If the total of the amounts showing on the dice amounts to 7 or 11, the pass line bet wins, and that game ends. If the dice show a total of 2, 3 or 12, the total on this come out roll is called Craps. This means the don’t pass line bet will win.  If the throw of the dice gives a total amount of 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, these are known as Point numbers. If the shooter rolls any of these numbers, this will establish the Point number, and this number has to appear as a total on the dice before another 7 appears.
