Live Craps Bets and Payouts

Whilst playing Craps is both fun and exciting players can often be somewhat confused when they first play the game as it can be, at first glance a little overwhelming due to the various different betting opportunities which are available. With this in mind we have compiled a definitive guide to the betting options and the payout odds which you will find on a Craps Table and these are listed below.

The first part of a game of Craps is know as the Come Out phase of the game and here you can place two wagers which are:

The Pass Line Bet

If a 7 or 11 is rolled in then you immediately receive a payout of even money. If a 2, 3, or 12 is rolled in then you lose your Pass Line Bet. Should any of the other numbers, those being the 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 be rolled in then that particular number will become the Point, and as such the shooter will keep on rolling the dice until either the Point number is rolled again or a 7 is rolled in.

Should the Point number roll in before a 7 then your Pass Line Bet will win, however if a 7 is rolled in before the Point number then your Pass Line Bet will be a loser.

The House Edge on the Pass Line Bet is 1.41%.

The Don't Pass Line Bet

Getting your head around the Don't Pass Line Bet is easy once you understand the above wager as on the Don't Pass Bet you are wagering on the opposite happening. If a 7 or 11 is rolled then your Don't Pass Line Bet will lose. If a 2 or 3 is rolled in then your Pass Line Bet will win.

Should a 12 be rolled in your stake is returned and the wager is deemed to be a push. Should during this part of the game the Point be established then you will win the Don't Pass Bet if the shooter rolls in a 7 before the Point is made, and lose your Don't Pass Line Bet if the point is made.

The House Edge on the Don't Pass Line Bet is 1.40%.

Taking the Odds

There is another bet you can place and this is after the Point has been established and here you are wagering that the Point will be made. The four numbers that can establish the Point, as mentioned above are the 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, and below are the payout odds you will receive should your Taking the Odds wager be successful.

A bet on the 6 or 8 will return a payout of 6:5.

A bet on the 5 or 9 will return a payout of 3:2.

A bet on the 4 or 10 will return a payout of 2:1.

Laying the Odds

You can also place what is known as a Lay wager, this is basically the opposite of the Taking the Odds bet in as much as you are betting that a seven will roll in before the Point is made. Dependent on what the Point number is you will be paid out at the following odds if a seven does indeed roll in before the Point is made.

A bet on the 6 or 8 will return a payout of 5:6.

A bet on the 5 or 9 will return a payout of 2:3.

A bet on the 4 or 10 will return a payout of 1:2.

Come Bets

A Come Bet can be placed at any time after the initial roll in anyone game has been made, and on the Table layout you will see a section dedicated to these wagers. By placing such a wager your Come Bet will win instantly should a 7 or 11 be rolled in, however this wager will instantly lose should a 2, 3 or a 12 be rolled in.

Come Bets can be slightly confusing as they have another element to them and this is that should a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 be rolled in then this number will become the Come Bet Point number and this wager will be a winning should this number be rolled in again before a 7, players are also allowed to add odds to this bet.

However as it is possible that the Shooter will make their Point on another number than the one which is the Come Bet Point number it may occur that the next roll is a come-out roll on a new game. Should this event happen then the odds bets on the come wagers are presumed to be not in play for the come-out roll.

This simply means that should a shooter roll in a 7 on the come-out roll, players who have Come Bets still in play will lose their initial wager but will have their odds bets returned to them. However should the Come Bet Point be rolled on the come-out roll, the odds part of the wager will not win but the Come Bet element of the bet will, and the odds bet is returned as a push.

Should a player want their odds working, then if the shooter rolls a number that matches the come point, the odds bet will win as well as the come bet, however should a 7 be rolled then both the wagers will lose.

Don't Come Bets

The Don't Come Bet has two rounds to it. Should either a 2 or a 3 be rolled in by the Shooter in the first round then it will be a winning bet, however if either a 7 or 11 be rolled in then the bet will lose. A Push will be declared on this wager should a 12 be rolled in.

Should any of the following numbers be rolled in by the Shooter: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 then the dealer moves this wager onto the part of the Craps table layout representing the number which was rolled in.. The next round of this wager will win should the shooter roll in a 7 before the Don't Come Point number..

You can only place these Don't Come Bets after the come-out roll when a point has already been established. Much like the Pass Line Bet players may add odds to these Don't Come Bets, should a Don't Come Bet win the payouts are even money for that part of the wager and the Odds bet are paid at true odds.
