The origins of craps can be traced back to an awkwardly complicated 14th century English game know as Hazard. Hazard was hugely popular among the aristocracy right through the 17th and 18th centuries. However, by the 19th century popularity has waned and in an effort to reinvent and revitalise the game, the rules were simplified and craps was born.
Although it has enjoyed some popularity, very few brick-and-mortar casinos outside the United States continue to offer the game.
The game of craps features one central betting type with several additional added betting types. As a result, to play craps a player only really needs to know how to place the main bet, the pass line bet.
Craps is played on a long table with a pair of dice. Pass line bets are placed on the section of the table labelled Pass Line. The shooter (the player) then roles the come out roll. If this role is a 7 or 11, the players win at 1:1. A 2,3 or 12 and the players lose or craps out. Any other number becomes the point.
Once the point has been set, the shooter is required to keep rolling until he rolls the point amount again in which case they win or until they roll a 7, in which case they lose.
