Craps Bets

Pass Line

The pass bet wins even money if the shooter rolls a 7 or 11 on the come out roll, but loses if a 2, 3, or 12 is rolled on the come out roll. The pass bet also wins if the shooter establishes the point and can manage to roll the point number again before rolling a 7.


No Pass Line

The no pass line works exactly the opposite of the pass line. If a 2 or 3 is rolled on the come out roll, the no pass bet wins. If a 12 is rolled on the come out roll it’s a push (tie). If the shooter establishes the point, but fails to roll the point number again before rolling a 7, the no pass bet wins. The no pass bet pays even money just like the pass bet.

Place Bet

The numbers across the top of the betting field 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10 are the place bets. A place bet may be made at any time during the game. When you make a place bet, you are betting that that number will be rolled before a 7. Once a 7 is rolled, all place bets are lost. The payoff for a place bet depends on the number being bet on and is determined by the probability of that number rolling.

Come/No Come

A come bet may be made after the point has been established. If you place a bet on the come line and the next number rolled is one of the place bet numbers, that number become your point and your bet is moved to that number. If your point is rolled again before a 7 is rolled you win. The payoff for each number is the same as with a place bet.

The no come bet is governed by the same craps rules as the no pass bet.

Odds Bet

An odds bet may be placed after the come out roll and serves as a sort of backup bet to increase your payoff, (if won) for the original pass or no pass bet.

You will notice, in addition to these bets there are other options on the betting field printed on the right side of the table.

Betting the Field

When you bet the field you are betting that the next roll will be either a 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, or 12. This pays even money unless either a 2 or 12 is rolled, in which case you are paid double (2:1).

Proposition Bets


Placing a bet on the “Seven” pays 4 to 1 if a 7 is rolled on the next roll.

Any Craps

Betting on “Any Craps” pays 7 to 1 if any craps number (2, 3, or 12) comes up on the next roll.

Hard Way

You may place a bet on 4, 6, 8, or 10 the “hard way.” Rolling the hard way means to roll doubles equaling up to either 4, 6, 8, or 10. Rolling a 4 or 10 the hard way pays 8 to 1 and rolling a 6 or 8 the hard way pays 10 to 1. These bets will ride until the number bet on (or a 7) is rolled. If it is an “easy” roll, (not doubles) the first time the number is rolled, the bet is lost.

Snake Eyes, Boxcars, 11, and 3

Concluding all craps bets, you may also place a bet on (2) snake eyes, (12) boxcars, 11 or 3. The payoff for any of these hitting is very high, but they must hit on the next roll.

  • 3 and 11 pay 15 to 1
  • Snake eyes and boxcars pay 30 to 1
