How to Play:
In online Craps you bet a number will be rolled or that a number will be rolled first before any other selected value. Craps is a game played in rounds and the first toss of the dice is called the come-out roll. You can automatically win or lose on that come-out roll, depending on where you placed your bet. In the event that you do not win or lose on the come-out roll, the outcome of the roll becomes the Point. The round continues until the Point or a 7 is rolled.
To get started a small bet has to be placed on the Pass Line, which is also the bet on the first throw of the dice. If you or someone else is rolling the dice the goal is for the dice to come up with the values 7 or 11. On the other hand, if the dice rolls out a 2, 3 or 12 it is counted as a loss. If any other number rolls out, that becomes the point. From there on, your target is to get that number again before a 7 rolls out.
Once you are at the table of Craps, you will see the empty table in front of you along with 4 casino chips laid out on the table's border. The value of each of the chips you will see is $1, $5, $25, and $100. You will be able to select the amount you would like to bet on each hand by clicking on those chips, depending on the size of your playable bankroll and where you would like to place you bets. If you would like to bet $40 on your next hand, you would simply click the $25 chip once, and then click the $5 chip 3 times to bring the total chip count placed in the betting box to $40. To remove chips from your bet, you simply click on the chips already placed in the betting box and they will be removed and placed back in your bankroll.
(NOTE: you can only remove chips from your bankroll before rolling the dice. Once the dice are rolled, all bets are final.)

Craps Tip 1: The Field Bet can be very exciting but be careful when playing it and use it wisely as there is a high house edge against you.
Craps Tip 2: It is encouraged to place a bet on the pass line before the come out roll as the house edge is only 1.41%, minimizing the odds.
Craps Tip 3: It is advised that players make a pass line bet, then once a point is thrown, make an “Odds” bet by placing additional chips behind your pass line bet just outside the pass line area. This bet has no house edge.
There are many bets that can be made while playing Craps. It is recommended that you take a look at the Help section of the The Virtual Casino online craps game for further information on all the bets you can place and their respective payouts.
