The game of CRAPLESS CRAPS begins with the come-out roll. The dice are offered to players in a clockwise direction around the table. The shooter selects a pair of dice and tosses them to the other end of the game. An effort must be made to bounce both dice off of the wall at the end of the table. A player must bet the PASS LINE to be eligible to shoot.
How To Play
On the come-out roll: 7 wins; any other number will be the point. To win, the point must be repeated before a 7 is rolled. If 7 rolls before the point is rolled, the PASS LINE loses and the dice are offered to the next shooter. A PASS LINE wager is a contract bet; it cannot be reduced or removed once the point is established, until it wins.
Come bets are similar to PASS LINE bets. They may be made on any roll subsequent to the come-out roll. The COME rules are the same as the PASS LINE rules. The only difference is that the dealer moves the wager to the box that corresponds to the number that was rolled. COME bets work on the come-out roll; odds are off unless otherwise stated.
Place bets are a wager that a specified number (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12) will roll before a 7 rolls. The payoff is: 7 to 6 on the 6 and 8, 7 to 5 on the 5 and 9, 9 to 5 on the 4 and 10, 11 to 4 on the 3 and 11, 11 to 2 on the 2 and 12. To make a PLACE BET: Tell the dealer which number, or numbers, is/are desired, and how much is to be wagered. Set the bet on the apron in front of you and the dealer will place it in the appropriate spot. PLACE BETS stay up until a 7-out rolls or the player specifies that they be taken down or off. PLACE BETS are off on the come-out roll unless otherwise stated.
*Numbers 2, 3, 11 and 12 will be treated as a BUY wager when wagering $20 and above per each number.
This wager is made as an addition to the PASS or COME bets. PASS LINE ODDS are set directly behind the original PASS LINE bet by the player. COME ODDS are set in place by the dealer at the request of the player. These wagers are paid according to the true odds of the dice:
