My Craps Game™ 2012 for iPad v1.6 - Rules of the Craps Table

My Craps Game Home

      

 

This section is a deeper look at the fine points of Craps. While every casino has it's own rules and odds, My Craps Game attempts to match the experience a player would have on a live table in Las Vegas with the same rules and same odds. The below graphic is typical of most Las Vegas casinos, though there will be variances. These are the mainstream Odds and what My Craps Game supports. The software does provide an Option for 5X, 10X or 100X Odds on all numbers, see Options.

Vegas Odds

Standard Las Vegas Odds and Payout Ratios

 

Starting with the basics - the Pass Line

Everybody's favorite and what Craps is all about.

When "Coming Out" the puck is on the black (OFF) side and we can make a Pass Line Bet. The game only accepts a Pass Line bet when "Coming Out". The player makes a Bet in the Pass Line area in one of 3 ways:

1) Drag & Drop Chips on to the Pass Line area, anywhere in a rectangle on the lower section of the Pass Line, rather than on the curve.

2) Drag & Drop a dollar value represented by a Gold Coin on to the Pass Line area. The player can type in a value of their choosing in the box below each Gold Coin. These are the Preset Amounts and can be Drag & Dropped on any Table Bet area.

3) The Pass Line Preset Bet button can be Tapped to place a Pass Line Bet. The player sets up the amount they would like the Pass Line Preset Bet button to place for them by Pressing and Holding the Pass Line Preset Bet button for 3 Seconds, and then tap on the amount box to enter an amount using the numeric keypad. The game will remember all Preset Bets.

Once the Point is Established, Bets on the Pass Line cannot be removed, but you can Add or Take Down (remove) the Odds bet at any time. Tap on any bet to remove it.

Any tap on an existing bet, removes that bet, if legal to do so.

The simple basis of Craps is that a Pass Line bet wins on a Coming Out roll when the number rolled is 7 or 11. The shooter would lose on a Coming Out roll when the number rolled is 2 or 3 or 12. Any other number (4,5,6,8,9,10) establishes that number as the Point.

When the shooter rolls a number that matches the Point, the Pass Line Bets win at even money (1:1). Should the shooter rolls a 7 the Pass Line Bets lose. While a live game and My Craps Game have a wide variety of things going on, thats the basis of what Craps is about.

When a Point is established, the dealer flips the Puck over to the white "ON" side and moves it over the Point number in the Place numbers area. You can always tell whats going on in any Craps game by noticing where the puck is and whether it's ON or OFF.

 

Pass Line Odds Bets

A standard bet in Craps is to "Take Odds" meaning extending your initial Pass Line bet with an Odds Bet. While a Pass Line bet only pays even money, an Odds bets pays Odds based on the point, hence the name.

You make an Odds Bet only after a Point has been established. Drag and Drop any of the 4 Chips (100, 25, 5, 1) or any of the Gold Coins (Preset Amount) to the Pass Line Odds Zone shown here:

The Pass Line Odds Zone

The Pass Line Odds Zone

Should you drop a chip that goes over the selected Odds Limit (3X,4X,5X) for the Point, the Game will say so, tell you why and dis-allow the bet over the limit. The chart below shows what the payout Odds are and their limits as a multiplier. For example: you make a Pass Line bet of $10 when the Point is 10, you can make a $30 (3X) Odds bet. If the Point was 8 and you made a Pass Line bet of $10, you can make a $50 (5X) Odds bet.

These are the mainstream Odds most Las Vegas casinos support and what My Craps Game supports. The game also has an Option for 5X, 10X or 100X Odds on all numbers, see Options. While only a few casinos support 10X or more Odds, they do exist. The Riviera in Las Vegas currently supports 1000X Odds!

As with most bets, Tap on the Pass Line Odds Bet to Take Down (remove) it, putting the value back into your Rail amount. You can Take Down a Pass Line Odds Bet any time you like, but may never Take Down a Pass Line Bet once a Point is Established.

 

Bet Odds that make sense

They dont have any fractional chips or 0.667 chips on a live table nor in My Craps Game, only whole dollars. So that you don't get paid some rounded down amount, you always want to bet a number divisible by the payout ratio, as:

Point Is   Odds Ratio Bet in Multiples of
6 or 8 6 to 5 5
5 or 9 3 to 2 2
4 or 10 2 to 1 doesn't matter

It turns out computers can be good at Math, so My Craps Game will watch your back and will advise you when an Odds bet is at a dis-advantageous amount.

Observe that multiples of 10 (5 * 2) will always work fine for all numbers. Easy to remember, bet in multiples of $10 and you will never be wrong.

 

Limits on Odds Bets

Notice the very top line of the Odds Chart above, a X (for times) number associated with the various Point numbers. This means how many times your Pass Line Bet the player may bet as Odds. Do the simple Math:

If the Point is 6 or 8, you can bet 5 times your Pass Line Bet.
If the Point is 5 or 9, you can bet 4 times your Pass Line Bet.
If the Point is 4 or 10, you can bet 3 times your Pass Line Bet.

With the full use of these Odds at their advantageous payouts, the House advantage is reduced to less than 1%. The lowest House advantage anywhere in the Casino.

These are the mainstream Odds most Las Vegas casinos support and what My Craps Game supports. The game also has an Option for 5X, 10X or 20X Odds on all numbers, see Options. While only a few casinos support 10X or more Odds, they do exist.

All the math and limits on Pass Line Odds described here are exactly the same on Come Bets as well.

 


The Max Odds Button

As it states, Tapping the Max Odds button calculates what are the Maximum Odds for the existing Pass Line Bet or a Don't Pass Line Bet, then places that Free Odds Bet for you. Of course, assuming you have enough money in your rail to cover that Bet. When a point is established and a Pass Line or Dont Pass bet has been made, then you can Tap the Max Odds button to automatically make the maximum odds bet.

If you have $60 to bet with, its way more favorable to make a $10 Pass Line Bet, then $50 Free Odds bet (as the House Odds allow) rather than a flat Pass Line Bet of $60.

 

The Dont Pass Line - Playing on the Dark Side of the Force

Some people feel that Craps is the best game in the Casino, not just for the less than 1% House advantage (on the right bets), but that the player can choose to bet that the Point will be matched with a Pass Line Bet OR that the shooter will Seven Out instead. As a Shooter will Seven Out 50% to 70% of the time, this thinking is statistically sound. A Bet that the Shooter will Seven Out is called the Dont Pass Bet.

When coming out, the player places a Bet on the rectangle above the Pass Line labelled "Dont Pass". Then, its exactly the opposite of the Pass Line.

When Coming Out - a Dont Pass Bet would win even money on a roll of 2 or 3. A 12 is a "push" which does nothing. A Dont Pass Bet would lose on a Coming Out roll when the number rolled is 7 or 11. Any other number (4,5,6,8,9,10) establishes that number as the Point.

After going up against an 8 to 3 house edge on the Coming Out roll, the Dont Pass player has an advantage of 18.8% after a Point has been established. Sevens and Elevens will come more than Twos or Threes, hence the 8 to 3 advantage.

Just like on the Pass Line, the player can opt to extend or amplify their Dont Pass bet by placing an additional Bet directly to the right of their Dont Pass Bet, this is known as "the Odds". As the Dont Pass is the opposite or reverse of the Pass Line, the Odds are reversed as well.

Point Is    Odds Ratio   Bet in Multiples of
6 or 8 5 to 6 6
5 or 9 2 to 3 3
4 or 10 1 to 2 2

In My Craps Game, the player makes a Dont Pass Odds bet by placing chips on the Dont Pass Bar, after the Point is established, by drag & dropping chips directly on to the Dont Pass Bar. The game will neatly place the Odds Bet directly to the right of the original Dont Pass Bet. As in all Odds Bets, My Craps Game will watch your back and will advise you when an Odds bet is at a dis-advantageous amount.

Dont Pass Bet and Odds

 

Dont Pass Odds / Dont Come Odds

Just like you can make Odds Bets behind the Pass Line, you can amplify your Dont Pass bet and your Dont Come Bet with Odds by placing an Odds amount just to the right of the initial Dont Pass Bet or just to the right of a Dont Come Bet, once it finds a Point. Actually, the Game will place the Odds bet in the correct spot if you drop a bet anywhere on the Dont Pass Bar.

As everything is opposite in Dont Pass betting (sometimes called wrong way betting), so are the Odds. We "Lay Odds" on the Dont Pass side, meaning we are betting more than we are getting. Lets consider an easy example. We bet $10 on the Dont Pass Bar when Coming Out.

Point Is Odds Ratio Bet Odds
in Multiples of
Odds Maximum
Odds Win
on $10
Maximum
Odds Bet
6 or 8 5 to 6 6 5X $50 $60
5 or 9 2 to 3 3 4X $40 $60
4 or 10 1 to 2 2 3X $30 $60

Here, the Odds are based both on the amount you initially bet ($10) AND the maximum amount you could win based on the Point (3X,4X,5X) using Standard Las Vegas Odds. Of course, should you select the Game Option for 10X Odds, just replace (3X,4X,5X) with 10X at the same Odds Ratio.

The Game will do all the math for you, so just keep betting unless the Game tells you otherwise. You could hurt your brain trying to figure all this out, so let the Game do its job.

All the the math and limits on Dont Pass Odds described here are exactly the same on Dont Come Bets as well.

 

Taking Down Dont Pass / Dont Come Bets & Odds

There are only two Bets on the Table you may never Take Down: Pass Line & Come Bets (once on a Point).

Every other Bet on the Table can be taken down anytime you like. Recall that we Tap on any Bet to Take Down (remove) it, putting the value back into your Rail amount.

Now you can Take Down the Odds and the Bet both on Dont Pass and on Dont Come. Say you have $10 on the Dont Pass Bar and $60 Odds Bet next to it as pictured in Dont Pass Bet and Odds. Should you Tap on Dont Pass Bar with both bets on, the Game will first Take Down the Odds and then Take Down the Dont Pass Bet the next time you Tap on it. If there were no odds, then the Dont Pass Bet would be taken down immediately when you Tap on it.

Consider the Come 8 $25 bet with $125 Odds, Tapping on either chip will take down the $125 Odds bet. Tapping on either the $25 Come 10 bet or its $75 Odds chips, will Take Down the $75 Odds bet.

 

The same methods are true for the Dont Come box. Should you Tap on the Dont Come Odds bet, the Game will first Take Down the Odds $5 and then Take Down the Dont Come Bet $100 the next tap on the Dont Come bet. If there were no odds, then the Dont Come Bet would be taken down immediately.

You CAN do it, but DONT do it.

Now after all that, the bigger question is why would you want to Take Down a Dont Bet? Any Dont Bet that survives the 18.8% House Advantage on Coming Out and finds its Point, is greatly to the Player's Advantage. The reason the House allows taking down Dont Bets is that they dont want you to have them up. The House considers it a suckers move to Take Down a Dont Bet. You are, of course, free to do what ever you like.

 

The Field Bets

Moving North of the Dont Pass area we next see an expanded area known as "The Field".

Simply put the Field Bet is a one roll only bet, always on, placed any time, that pays even money (1:1) if any of the displayed numbers is rolled. We notice the 2 pays Double (2X) and the 12 pays Triple (3X) in My Craps Game as is true in most Casinos. Note that some Casinos will pay only Double on the 12, ask or look at their table layout.

The House advantage is 11% on the Field and such, this is not considered a smart bet. But if it comes in, then the bettor is of course a genius.

Field Bets are made by drag & dropping chips to anywhere within the rectangular area shown just above.

 

The Come Bet

Most of the middle of the table layout that isn't something else is the Come area.

The Come Bets are really just like a Pass Line Bet as far as Payouts and Odds, but in a different time dimension. While most everything about a Craps game is about making a Point and the Pass Line Bet, the Come Bet works on its own schedule, think of it as the Night Shift. Same product, different time.

A Come Bet can be made at any time, regardless of Coming Out or Point established. Bets are made by drag & dropping chips to within the rectangular area shown just above. A simple Come Bet has a House Advantage of only 1.41% same as the Pass Line as its really the same bet.

If the next roll is a 7 or 11, the Come Bet is an instant winner at even money, just like a Pass Line bet. Conversely, if the next roll is a 2,3 or 12 the Come Bet is an instant loser. Should the next roll be one of the Point numbers (4,5,6,8,9,10) the Game will move the Come Bet to the upper area of the Place number block, like this:

Here we see an initial Come Bet of $100 on the 4 and on the 5, along with a $5 chip representing Odds placed on the Come Bet.

The game will move your Come Bet to the correct spot for you, as would a dealer in a live game.

Just like a Pass Line Bet, the player can opt to extend or amplify their Come Bet by placing an additional Odds Bet directly to the right of the Come Bet. The Red 5 shown here is such an example. Note that the Game needs you to drop your chip in the top half area of the number box as the lower half is considered the Place Bet area.

Then, if the shooter rolls that number, like a 4 or a 5 in our example, the Game pays even money on the initial Come Bet and Pass Line Odds on any Odds bet. The Come Bets (and Odds) are then returned to the player after the number comes in and is paid, unless there is an initial Come Bet of equal value which then replaces the winning bet. As you might expect, the Come Bet and Come Odds Bet are lost if a 7 is rolled.

In summary, say you made an initial $25 Come bet, it found the 8 as its point, then you added an Odds bet by that Come 8. Next, you make another initial $25 Come bet, an 8 is rolled for a winner. After the Come bet and its Odds are paid, the game returns the Come bet sitting on 8, moves the new initial Come bet into its place and leaves the Odds alone. A non-equal Come bet value (not $25) would cause the Odds to be returned in this example.

When an initial Come Bet is on when a Seven is rolled, it is paid at even money and the Come Bet is left on the table for the player to deal with.

 

Come Bet Odds on the Come Out Roll

When a Point is made and there are Come Bets with Odds still on the table, the game will present a small prompt (under the History List) for Come Bet Odds: On or Off.

Most Casinos will allow the player to call their Come Bet Odds as On (Working) or Off, just like the Hardways on a Come Out roll. This new prompt panel is only shown when there are Come Bets with Odds on the table at Coming Out time. The player can choose to make new Come Bet Odds bet if there were no Odds behind a Come Bet on a Point, this will then cause this On/Off prompt panel to appear as there are now Come Odds bets to deal with.

The Come Bet Odds button is a toggle, tap it to make it the other way (On/Off). The game will remember the last On/Off decision and make that the default for the next time.

Should the player have Come Bet Odds on the table and call those bets as "Off", when a Seven is rolled, the game takes the losing base Come Bets as usual, but returns the Come Bet Odds to the player's Rail with a simple animation showing this is the case, as well as a Results message indicating that these bet(s) are Returned To Rail. A number rolled matching the Come Bet will pay the Come Bet at even money and return the Come Bet Odds to the player's Rail.

Conversely, should the player call their Come Bet Odds as "On", the game will pay the winning base Come Bets as well as the Come Bet Odds at True Odds, of course. Should a Seven be rolled, the Come Bets as well as the Come Bet Odds are taken as a loss.

 

The Dont Come Bar

The reverse of the Come bet. Dont Pass on a separate time phase. The player places chips in the Dont Come Bar box at the top right of the table layout, as seen here:

This Bet can made at any time, as it is not tied to the established Point. Bets are made by drag & dropping chips to within the rectangular area shown just here.

Just like the Dont Pass Bet, a roll of 7 or 11 is an instant loser, as roll of 2 or 3 is an instant winner and a roll of 12 is a "push" (nothing happens). Notice the 12 emblem in the box. A Dont Come Bet has a House Advantage of only 1.36%.

Should the next roll be one of the Point numbers (4,5,6,8,9,10) the Game will move the Dont Come Bet to the top area of the Place number block, like this:

The black $100 chips were placed in the Dont Come area automatically by the Game, just like the dealer would in a live game.

Just like a Dont Pass Bet, the player can opt to extend or amplify their Dont Come bet by placing an additional Bet anywhere within the small rectangle in the Dont Come Zone for the number. The game will then position your Dont Come Odds Bet directly to the right of the Dont Pass Bet, as represented by the red $5 chips seen just above. Any Odds, including Dont Come Odds, can be taken down or added to any time. The Dont Come Bet can also be taken down, though not recommended (see above).

As the Dont Come is the opposite or reverse of the Come Bet, the Odds are reversed as well.

Point Is    Odds Ratio   Bet in Multiples of
6 or 8 5 to 6 6
5 or 9 2 to 3 3
4 or 10 1 to 2 2

The betting limits for a Dont Come bets are identical to the Dont Pass Bets. See above.

 

Place Bets

The series of 6 boxes with numbers near the top of the table layout are called the Place Bets. These will appear centered in the lower part of the box in v1.5.

When Coming Out, Place Bets are always "Off" meaning not working. Once a Point is established, Place Bets are "On" and working. You can make, add to, or Take Down a Place Bet any time you like. Place Bets are made by drag & dropping chips in to the outlined zone we see just above, which is the lower half of each number's box.

Here we see a chart of the payout ratios for Place Bets for each number.

Point Is     Odds Ratio   Bet in Multiples of  House Advantage
6 or 8 7 to 6 6 1.52%
5 or 9 7 to 5 5 4.00%
4 or 10 9 to 5 5 6.67%

My Craps Game will watch your back and try to advise you when a Place bet is at a dis-advantageous amount. Note that any Place Bet can be taken down at any time. Some players setup a few Place Bets, wait a few rolls and then take the Place Bets down to reduce their risk (and winnings). Dont ask for your Place Bets to be taken down while Coming Out, as Place Bets are always OFF when Coming out.

 

Using the BUY button on Place Bets

Notice on the Game screen at far left, there is a chip sized pink button labelled "BUY".

The BUY button is used by the player to slightly increase their payout odds ratio on Place Bets. Recall that place bets pay slightly less (9 to 5 on the 4) than do Pass Line Odds (2 to 1 on the 4). To gain back some advantage, the player on a live table will verbally ask to "BUY the 4" or whatever number is of interest. The dealer would then place a pink (or other color) BUY button on top of your existing Place Bet. Should the Bet win, it will then be paid out at the better Pass Line Odds (2 to 1 on the 4) or True Odds.

There is a vigorish or vig or commission cost of 5% of the Place Bet, taken out of the winning payout, not paid up front. Some Casinos may ask you to pay the vig up front, My Craps Game does not. If the Bet loses, the BUY button it is just taken along with the Place Bet, no cost to the player.

In My Craps Game, the BUY button is not taken down by itself, it is taken down when the Place Bet is taken down. Note that you can add chips to a Place BUY bet all you want, the game will keep the Pink BUY button on top of your stack of chips.


Option :: (Automatically) Put a BUY Button on Place 4 / Place 10

The game has an option that allows the player a choice of whether the game should automatically put a BUY button on the Place 4 or Place 10 bet, if the bet is $25 or more. This is somewhat standard procedure in most casinos. The player can turn off the automated BUY placement with the "I will put it on myself" option. This option selection can be made at any time and is remembered by the Game, see Options.

When and Where do I use the BUY Button?

As it is dis-advantageous to BUY the 6 and/or 8, the Game dis-allows that. It only really makes sense to BUY the 4 and/or 10 on a Place Bet of $25 or more, as the math works. The rounding down works against you. You can BUY the 5 and/or 9, but it does not really help you much unless you bet hundreds on the Place Bet.

Examples:

Point Is   Place Bet Less 5% Vig True Odds Ratio Net BUY Payout Regular Place Payout
6 or 8 $60 $57 6 to 5 $68 $70
5 or 9 $50 $47 3 to 2 $71 $70
4 or 10 $50 $47 2 to 1 $95 $90

The math of rounding dollar amounts may vary between casinos. You may gain a rounding advantage by yourself add the Vig 5% . Common practice is for the player to add to their BUY bet, $1 for a $25 Bet, $2 for a $50 bet, $4 for a $75 Bet, $5 for $100 Bet, essentially "Pre-Paying" the Vig to get the payout math to work nice. Ask your Dealers what works best in their House. "Vig" for Vigorish* means the house take or commission.

 

Lay Bets

At the very top of the layout is a row of bet sections labeled "Lay". Dragging a bet to any of the 6 sections, places a Lay Bet on the number associated to that column (4,5,6,8,9,10). A $100 bet on Lay 10 is shown here in the top most row:

Lay Bets

What is a Lay Bet?

The term "Lay" in betting means you are betting more than you are getting if you win. A Lay bet is a wager than a 7 will be rolled before the number you are betting against (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10). So its just the opposite of the Place bets. The 4 and 10 are the usual suspects for Lay bettors, a bettor might make a Lay bet on the 4 and on the 10, expecting a 7 to come before the 4 or 10.

Lay bets are "always on", a bet either wins, loses or not on every roll of the dice. Lay bets are not related or tied to the Pass Line bet in any way. As such, a Lay Bet can be made or taken down any time you like.

Now it gets complicated

As the Lay bet pays inverse true odds we can expect to get paid $1 for every $2 bet on the 4 / 10, $2 for every $3 bet on the 5 / 9 and $5 for every $6 bet on the 6 / 8. Thats in a perfect world, which the casino avoids. On Lay bets, the casino will charge a commission on the winning bet payout called the Vigorish* or commonly called "Vig". That Vig is 5% of the winnings. If your bet paid $100 true odds, your dealer would take $5 out of your payout, netting you $95. Should the math calculate a fractional amount like $2.50 for the Vig, dealers will round down and take out $2 even. The exception to this rule is that the Vig must be at least $1, so no free Vig for you pal.

My Craps Game is setup to take the Vig out of the winning payout as most casinos do. Some casinos require that you pay the Vig up front, when the bet is made. My Craps Game has opted for the easier and more common method.

* (From Wikipedia)
"Vigorish, or simply the vig, also known as juice or the take, is the amount charged by a bookmaker, or bookie, for his services. In the United States it also means the interest on a shark's loan. The term is Yiddish slang originating from the Russian word for winnings, vyigrysh. Bookmakers use this practice to make money on their wagers regardless of the outcome."

There are better ways to win than with a Lay bet

The House Advantage for the Lay bet is 2.4% for the 4 or 10, 3.2% for the 5 or 9, and 4.1% for the 6 or 8. So not terrible House Advantage numbers, though there are better ways to win with a "Dont" bet.

Lay bets were not included in versions prior to 1.4 as they are not considered a "good" bet and very rarely seen on a live table. It is now included only for a point of completeness of the layout to match what to expect on a live table. Bad bets and all.

Say you keep a Lay bet of $100 on the 4 and after 10 decisions, you won 6 times and lost 4 times. Great, right? Not so much. Winning a $100 Lay 4 pays only $48 after the Vig is taken, though you lost the full $100 on each loss.

Wins: 6 x $48 = $288
Losses: 4 x $100 = $400
Net Loss: -$ 112

You lost $112 and you missed much better payouts. That stinks. Take the same 10 decisions with Dont Pass or Dont Come bets for a flat $100.

Wins: 6 x $100 = $600
Losses: 4 x $100 = $400
Net Win: $200

While it is true that you can choose whatever point you want on a Lay Bet, a player looking to win real money will not do that with Lay bets. Find another way to win.

 

Hardways

Near the top left of the table layout we see the Hardways area.

These Bets are ongoing, in that they can be made or taken down at any time and are working with every roll of the dice.

Hardway bets win and payout at 9 to 1 for the Hard 6 & 8 or 7 to 1 for the Hard 4 & 10 based on the numbers shown here. These bets lose when a "easy" number of the same value but not matching dice is rolled. For example: a 3 and 5 dice roll is considered an "easy eight" and loses a Hard 8 Bet, a 4 and a 4 dice roll is considered a Hard 8 Bet win. See the image at left.

Why does it say 10 FOR 1 on the Layout instead of 9 TO 1???

This a "don't shoot the messenger" deal. Most Las Vegas casinos have opted to show on their layout, one unit more than the true payout, to account for the Bet being left on the Table. Your author thinks this is screwy and mis-representative, but we play by House Rules on the House Layout.

The payouts are high for a reason, they don't come in very often. The House has a 9.1% advantage on the 6 & 8, 11.1% advantage on the 4 & 10. Not great bets, but fun when they come in. We recommend you parlay or re-invest some or all of your Hardway Bet winnings.

 

The One Roll Bets

Last in our counter clockwise tour of the table layout is the One Roll Bets area.

One Roll BetsAs the name indicates, all of these Bets are for One Roll Only, and as such can be made at any time.

Any Seven, or as its called in the Casino "Big Red" pays 4 to 1 on any of the 3 ways a 7 can be rolled (16.67%).

The 2 and 12 pay 30 to 1 (13.89%), the 3 and 11 pay 15 to 1 (11.11%).

Any Craps means 2, 3 or 12 and pays 7 to 1 (11.11%). Any Craps is the same Bet as is the C of C & E fame.

Why does it say 31 FOR 1 on the Layout instead of 30 TO 1???

This again is a "don't shoot the messenger" deal. Most Las Vegas casinos have opted to show on their layout, one unit more than the true payout, to account for the Bet being left on the Table. Your author thinks this is screwy and mis-representative, but we play by House Rules on the House Layout.

Last, in the middle we see the "Horn Bet". This is a combo bet that places one quarter of its value on the 2, 12, 3 & 11. All the numbers around the Horn. Always make this bet a multiples of 4, ex: 4, 12, 20, 40, 80, 100, etc.

Now all of these Bets are low percentage, notice the high house advantage in parentheses. All of these One Roll bets are all terrible bets. So you were warned.

 

The C & E circles

All Craps tables have a series of C & E circles to between the Pass Line and One Roll areas. My Craps Game has these:

The (C) is for Craps, same as Any Craps at 7 to 1, 11.11% House Advantage.

The (E) is for Eleven, also know as "Yo" at 15 to 1, 11.11% House Advantage.

Drag & Drop a chip onto either the (C) or the (E) to make this bet. Identical to the One Roll Bets which they are, placed on the Table Layout as a bettor convenience, though at 11.11% House Advantage, these are both lousy Bets.
