Online casino craps
The goal of online craps is to spin a 7 or an 11 without crapping out.
The basics of online craps features a player placing either a pass or do not pass bet. The shooter then throws the dice. A 7 or 11 is a natural win for a pass bet, 2, 3 or 12 is craps and any other number will become the point.

The origins of craps
The earliest form of craps is generally accepted to be an excessively complicated 14th century English game called Hazard. It would take another 500 years before Bernard de Mandeville would introduce a simplified version of the game to New Orleans in 1813 which he called craps.
Although this is the generally accepted progression of craps, there has been speculation that the game actually dates as far back as 100 A.D in the Roman Empire. It is rumoured that roman soldiers would make use of pig knuckles for dice that would then be rolled into their shields. Romantic as it may be, there is little or no evidence to confirm such speculation.
How to play online craps
The online craps table is one of the most intimidated of any online table games. It does, as result, put off a large number of newcomers. However, when you wade through the noise of the various betting types at the core of online craps betting is a single fundamental bet type, the “pass line” bet.
The pass line bet
To place a pass line bet, a player only needs to place their chips on the section of the table labelled “pass line”. Once bets have been placed, it’s time for the come out roll. If your two dice roll equals 7 or 11 then the player wins at 1:1. If the shooter (player) rolls a 2, 3 or 12 they lose – this is referred to as crapping out. Finally, if the shooter rolls any other number then that number becomes “the point” and play continues.
Once the point has been set, the shooter will continue to roll the dice until they either roll the point again, in which case the player wins at a 1:1 rate, or they roll a 7, in which case the player loses.
