Casino Craps

This is the 7th tip in our eBook How to Play Craps – 11 Rolls to Win.

Before you belly up to the craps table you might want to learn how to play nice with the dice.

Casino craps may be a bit overwhelming, but with these tips you will look like a pro.

  • Shaking/holding the dice: You may only use one hand when handling the dice, and be sure not to take the dice past the edge of the table. If you have to change hands, you must set the dice on the table, then pick up with the other hand. Some casinos may not let you change hands.
  • Throwing the dice: When you are the shooter, you are expected to hit the farthest wall at the opposite end of the table when throwing the dice. If a throw falls short of the opposite wall, most casinos will allow the throw as long as the dice make it past the middle of the table. Casino craps will not allow dice to be slid across the table, they must be tossed but not higher than eye-level of the dealer.
  • Where the dice land: If the dice land on the dealer’s working stacks, players’ bets, on the marker puck, or if one die lands on top of the other, they are still considered “in play”. However, if the dice land in the stickman’s bowl, boxman’s bank, in the table rails, or if both dice leave the table then the roll becomes invalid. If either dice hit a player or dealer and roll back onto the table, the roll counts as long as the person hit didn’t interfere with the die or dice. Casino rules may vary and they may still call the roll invalid if this happens.
  • Dealers rules: Dealers are not allowed to touch players’ hands nor can players touch the dealers’ hands. Players choosing to bet in casino craps are expected to lay their cash on the craps table for the dealer to pick up. The dealer will then place the chips in front of the player.
  • Chips: Whenever possible, it’s always best to place your chips on the board instead of tossing them. Place chips, toss dice 🙂
  • Passing: When it becomes your turn to shoot the dice, you may elect to pass them to the next player without offending anyone. It is required that one player must always be a shooter for the game to continue.
  • Tipping: If you would like to tip the dealer, it’s ok to toss chips onto the table and say “for the dealers” or “for the boys”. You can also place bets for the dealer if you choose.
  • Bad-Luck: It’s considered bad luck to say 7 after the come-out roll. A common nickname for 7 is big red or just red. This name is derived from the betting space since it red and large.
  • Late Bets: It’s considered rude to make bets when the dice are no longer in the middle of the table.
