How to play Street Craps?

The Basics to casino craps:
The player who is rolling the dice is called the "shooter". The first roll in a round of Craps is called the "Come Out" roll. If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11, they win. If the shooter rolls a 2. 3 or 12, that's a Craps and they lose. If any other number is rolled it becomes the "Point". The purpose of the "Come Out" roll is to set the Point, which can be 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10. The Dealer places a puck marked "On" above the Point number printed on the table.

The shooter's objective now is to roll the "Point" again before a 7 is rolled, called the "Out 7". If the Point is rolled, the shooter and his fellow bettors win and the round is over. If the shooter rolls "Out 7", they lose and the round is over. If the roll is neither the "Point" nor "Out 7", the shooter continues to roll until they get the "Point" or "Out 7".

All bets must be placed before the shooter rolls. There are numerous ways of betting on Craps, including One Roll Bets, Pass Line Bets, Don't Pass Bets and Come Bets.

Street craps or "Ghetto Craps" (also referred to as shooting dice or bank craps):
You only bet pass/don't pass.

Each bet has to be covered by another player.The shooter makes his bet (pass or don't pass). Then it goes clockwise around the table, with each player having the option to cover a portion (or all) of the shooter's bet. Once the shooter's entire bet is covered, other players may wager against each other. Once all wagers are made, the game procedes just like in a casino.

Street craps is sometimes confused with Cee-Lo:
Cee-Lo is a street game played with three dice.

Each game involves two or more players. A bet amount is agreed upon and each player puts that amount in the pile or pot. Each player then has to roll all three dice at once and must continue until a recognized combination, or number, is rolled.

If you roll 1, 2, 3, then you're instantly out. If you roll 4, 5, 6, then you "instantly" win (unless someone else rolls 4, 5, 6, which requires a shootout).

Otherwise, you keep rolling until two dice match (eg. 5, 5, 3) and your score is the amount on the remaining die (which would be 3 in the example).

Rolling three of the same number is known as rolling "trips". All other players must roll a higher number with trips or 4 5 6 to win. Triple digits beat single digits (eg. 1, 1, 1 beats even a 3, 3, 6).

The person with the highest score after everyone rolls wins the pot.

If two or more players roll the same highest combination, a new round begins between those players. Sometimes each player deposits twice as much money into the pot as he did in the previous round. The game continues with a new round, with only those left in the game rolling.

The game ends once there is a single winner in a round, with all the money in the pot going to the winner.

Online Craps

The rules to playing craps online are the same as playing in a casino. Playing online is often better than in live games because many online casinos use random generators for the dice. This gives the player the same odds as in a casino. But online casinos also offer deposit bonuses, where live casinos do not. This is why sucessful craps players often end up making more money playing online than at a live table.
