#6 – Multi Roll Craps Bet: All Together Now

Posted by Megan On April 15th

Multi Roll craps bets

This is the 6th tip in our eBook How to Play Craps – 11 Rolls to Win.

Don’t put all your wagers on one number.

Multi roll craps bets are bets that cannot be determined on the first roll.

It’s important to know that casino rules can vary for multi roll craps bets, so we advise that you always check the rules before playing them.

If a point is made by the shooter before the outcome of the multi roll bet decided, these bets are considered “not working” in the new come-out roll until the next point is established (unless the player calls the bet as “working”). Did you know that the Big “M” Casino (Fort Myers Beach) has a free craps class on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday?

Here are some popular multi roll craps bets:

This is the 1st tip in the “How to Play Craps – 11 Rolls to Win” eBook.

When did the game of craps bounce into history?

There are some differing opinions as to where craps originated, but please read for yourself and decide.

Some say that the game of craps was invented by Sir William of Tyre during the crusades in 1125 AD. Sir William and his men came upon a castle by the name of “Asart” or Hazarth. The crusaders were in need of entertainment while they were laying siege to the castle Hazard. Therefore, the dice game they played became known as “Hazard” derived from the castle name.

However, the controversy begins…others believe that Hazard (or the game of craps as we know it) originated from an Arabic dice game called “Al Zar”, which means “dice” in Arabic. Some believe that even before the 12th century, the game migrated to Europe with the help of merchants. In 2600BC, there has also been evidence that dice games were played in Egypt which may prove that the games originated in the Arabic world.

Enough proof to make your decision yet? Here’s some more information to consider.
