When you go to an actual casino and you see a part where a lot of people are shouting at the top of their lungs while also giving high-fives to any player that seemed to have gotten lucky, then that is most likely the c.

The game of rs might look intimidating at first, especially because the a[ pit is usually quite a busy place, but the actual gameplay is not that hard to learn at all. In fact, I could sum up the gameplay simply by telling you to roll two dice and get any number except 7. That is pretty much the gist of it.

But, I am assuming that you, the person reading this article, would want to know the basics of how this game is played.

So in this article, I will provide you with a newbie’s guide to playing craps at the casino.

Sit on an Open Spot

The first thing that you want to do would be to locate the craps pit inside the casino. This is typically where you will see a lot of loud people simply because of how energetic and lively this game can be.

Once you’ve found the pit, find a table with an open spot. Since you are still learning how this game is played, it is best that you find a table where there aren’t a lot of players since you do not want to slow the game down.

You might have trouble finding an open spot at the craps table at night and if you want
to learn your chops, I suggest going in the morning since, most likely, the tables will not
be as crowded.

Put Your Bets Down

Once you’ve found a relatively empty craps table, you want to put your bets down on the corresponding areas on the felt. But here’s the most important part: only do so if no one is about to roll the dice. You might be asking, “why”?

Well, that is because craps players, or any gambler for that matter, are a superstitious lot. If you put down your bet almost at the same time they’re rolling the dice and it happens to touch your hand and, let’s presume that it totaled to 7, then the player who rolled the dice might give you death stares or something like that (take it from me, I’ve learned it the hard way).

If you are going to set your money, do so as quickly as possible and only if no one is
about to roll their dice.

Place Your Odds Bet

Assuming that the player who you’ve placed your bet on rolls the number 6, the stickman would then shout something like, “The point is six”. This is the number that you want to focus on.

Basically, you want the player to roll another six before they roll a number 7. But, before they start rolling, you want to place your odds behind your original bet which basically means that you are increasing your odds of winning more money.

This is why the game of craps is so exciting. You’re potentially getting a lot just by playing an enjoyable game.
