Craps Information

Craps is a dice game in which players place wagers on the outcome of the roll or a series of rolls of two dice. Players may wager money against each other or a bank . Because it requires little equipment, street craps can be played in informal settings.

Craps developed from a simplification of the Old English game hazard. Its origins are complex and may date to the Crusades, later being influenced by French gamblers. What was to become the modern American version of the game was brought to New Orleans by Bernard Xavier Philippe de marigny de Mandeville, scion of wealthy Louisiana landowners and a gambler and politician. There was a flaw in Bernard's version of the game in which players could exploit the casino using fixed dice and taking advantage of the way players can bet with or against the dice thrower. A man named John H. Winn introduced the "don't pass" betting option in order to fix this problem and it is this version of craps that still exists today. The game, first known as crapaud reportedly owes its modern popularity to it being spread through the African-American community .

Bank craps is a game played by one or more players against a casino. The casino covers all player bets at a table and sets the odds on its payout. Players take turns rolling two dice. The player rolling the dice is called the "shooter." Other players at the table bet on the shooter's dice rolls. The game is played in rounds, with the first roll of a new round called the "come-out roll." The round resolves with a point being rolled or a seven.
