How to Play Craps in Oregon

Craps is one of the most exciting casino games available in Oregon, as well as one of the most exciting casino games you’ll ever play, period. There’s just something about throwing the dice, and rooting for the numbers everyone on the table is hoping for all together.

Just watch the Craps table for a few moments, and you’ll see the excited cheers and raucous jeers of Craps players as the shooter tosses the dice. Unfortunately, so many people choose not to play Craps simply because it appears to be so complicated. It’s also a little bit intimidating honestly. Nobody wants to throw the dice for the first time, especially if you’re somewhere like Wildhorse Casino where, when we visited, the dealers can be a bit crotchety when you don’t know what you’re doing.

The fact is, Craps is very easy to learn, and the excitement created by shooting those dice down the craps table, towards the wall on the other end, is just, well worth the time taken to learn how to play craps.

Oregon Casinos offer some of the best places in the world to learn the game, especially if you have some time to visit on a weekday. Believe me, you want to learn here locally, or online at the very least, before you go shooting craps at a Las Vegas Casino.

How to Play Craps at an Oregon Casino
There is no real limit to how many players can participate in a game of Craps. Basically, if you can fit yourself in around the table, you can play. If you have hips, you can probably squeeze your ass in there somewhere. There is one shooter (the person throwing the dice) and countless betters. A box man is on hand to collect losing bets and pay winners.

In order to play Craps, you will need to place chips on certain betting areas of the table. As the dice are thrown, your bet will either be won, lost, or remain on the table, depending on the type of bet you placed, and of course… the roll of the dice.

Craps Bets

There are two basic types of bets in Craps – those that are won or lost in a single roll, and those that remain on the table for multiple rolls, until won or lost. We’ll describe each type of Craps bet below.

Craps Bets: Line Bets

These are extremely popular Craps bets, having a house edge of only 1.40% to 1.41%.There are four types of Line Bets, two of which must be placed before the shooter’s first roll, and the other two after. Line Bets are long-lasting bets that remain on the table until won or lost.

Craps Pass Line Bets: Must be placed on come out roll only. If 7 or 11 is rolled, you win 1:1; if 2, 3 or 12 is rolled, you lose. Any other number rolled becomes the “Point”. From here on out, you are betting that the Point will come again before a 7 is rolled.

Don’t Pass: Opposite of the Pass Line, if a 2, 3 or 12 is rolled on the come out roll, you win 1:1; if a 7 or 11 is rolled, you lose. Any other number becomes the “Point”, and your bet becomes one that the shooter will roll 7 before the Point comes again.

Come: Placed immediately after the Point is established, this is a bet that the Point will come again before a 7.

Don’t Come: Placed immediately after the Point is established, this is a bet that a 7 will come before the Point is rolled again.

Place Bet: A bet on one of these numbers – 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 – that the chosen number will come before a 7.

Place Bet to Lose: A bet on one of these numbers – 4, 5, 6, 7, 9 or 10 – that the chosen number will NOT come before a 7.

Big 6 / Big 8 Bet: Exactly the same as a Place Bet on 6 or 8, expect the payoff is lower. These pay 1:1, where Place Bets pay 23:21 (slightly higher). TIP: Don’t make this bet! You’re an idiot if you do, and everyone on the table knows it. The reason this bet is even on the table is so that husbands and wives back in the day could have a simple way to bet the six and eight.

Hard way Bet: this is a bet that a specific number will be rolled the “hard way”. For example, a 4 will be rolled as 2+2 (not 1+3), or a 6 as 3+3 (not 4+2 or 5+1). Hard-way Bets can be placed on all doubles resulting in 4, 6, 8 or 10.

Craps Bets: Single Roll Bets

These are bets placed after the point is established, and are won or lost in a single roll of the dice.

Field Bet: This is a bet that the next roll will be 2, 3, 4, 9 10, 11 or 12.

Proposition Bet: There are several proposition bets that can be placed, but let us start by saying we discourage them. The payoffs seem great, but the house edge is incredibly high. Proposition bets can be made on:

Any Craps (2, 3 or 12)
Any Seven
Horn Bet (2, 3, 11 or 12)
World Bet (2, 3, 7, 11 or 12)
Yo Bet (11)
2 or 12
3 or 11
1+6 (Hardway 7)
2+5 (Hard-way 7)
3+4 (Hard way 7)

Craps Betting Tips and Strategy

1.Avoid Proposition Bets, the house edge is generally too high.
2.Never place a bet on Big 6 or Big 8. Instead, bet on Place Bet 6 or 8, the payoff is higher.
3.Never bet on Any Seven. The house edge is 16.67%. If yo must bet on 7′s, place three equal bets on 1+6, 2+5 and 3+4 (all Hard way 7s). the house edge is decreased to 11.11%.
