Live betting services offer more than just sports betting, and the casino is where the action is after hours. Many people are familiar with slots and blackjack, but may pay per head customers aren’t sure about some of the other games. Let’s have a closer look at the game of craps.
Gamblers take turns at rolling a pair of dice on a craps table which is often green and lettered in white. The gambler that rolls the dice is called the shooter and the others around the table bet on the result of a round of dice rolls.
When the dice is rolled it produces a result between 2 and 12 in one of 36 possible outcomes. A round can consist of one round or a sequence of rolls. The object of craps is to gamble with or against the shooter.
The shooter must have a bet on the “Pass” line or the “Don’t Pass” line for live betting service.
The shooter’s first roll of the dice is called the come out roll and if the come out roll is a 7 or 11, which is called a natural, the pass line wins, and if it’s a 4,5,6,8,9,or 10 then these figures become point numbers, and establish the point to pass.
Each round has two parts: “come-out” and “point”. To start a round, the shooter makes one or more “come-out” rolls. A come-out roll of 2, 3 or 12 is called “craps” or “crapping out”, and anyone betting the Pass line loses.
Each roll of the dice has a name. Two ones are called snake eyes, while two sixes are called boxcars. A four and a two is an easy six, while two threes is a hard six. etc
The types of wagers at the craps live betting table are:
Pass line bet: The fundamental bet in craps is the pass line bet, which is a bet for the shooter to win.
Don’t pass line bet: A Don’t pass line bet is a bet for the shooter to lose (shooter “seven out, line away”) and is almost the opposite of the pass line bet.
Come bet: A come bet is like starting an entirely new pass line bet, unique to that player. A player making a come bet bets on the first point number that “comes” from the shooters next roll.
Don’t come bet: A don’t come bet is played in two rounds. If a 2 or 3 is rolled in the first round, it wins. If a 7 or 11 is rolled, it loses. If a 12 is rolled, it is a push (this is to reverse the natural house advantage.
