Here we list all the types of craps bets you may encounter when playing online craps.
The most popular craps bet, the Pass Line, has a house edge of just 1.41% and is the easiest wager to make. Most players can just stick to playing the Pass Line for the entirety of their game and enjoy good odds to make money.
A nifty wager for a single roll of the dice at any time. The Field bet sees the player win if they throw a 3, 4, 9, 10, or 11, a double payout on a 2, and triple if a 12 is rolled. To counter these winnings, a bet is lost if the dice lands on a 5, 6, 7, or 8.
You can only make this bet after the point on the Pass Line has been determined, but the rules are exactly the same as those for a Pass Line bet. After the come point has been set, a natural will see an instant win, craps will lose the bet, and other rolls will be a winner if the come point is repeated before rolling a 7; if a 7 is rolled, then the bet is lost.
Place bets can be made at any time during a game of craps, but are often played when a point number has already been determined. The idea is that the player makes a bet on a number that must be rolled before a 7 is thrown; there are three different payouts and house edges for each dice number wagered on.
Prop bets include seven different types of wagers that can be made at any time during a game. They are also all one-roll bets, except the hardways. Proposition bets (and their payout odds) include: Any Craps (8:1), Any Seven (5:1), Eleven (16:1), Ace Deuce (16:1), Aces or Boxcars (30:1), Horn Bet, and Hardways.
Odds on Pass Line:
This is an additional bet that can be made after a point has been rolled. Each point will have a different payoff, and you will only win a payout if the point is rolled again before a 7 is thrown.
Odds on Come:
Almost identical to the Odds On Pass Line bet, Odds on Come wagers can be made after a point has been rolled. Instead of betting on the Pass Line, punters instead take odds on the Come bet.
Don't Pass Line:
An inverted bet that can be played at most times during a game. It is easy to understand since it is simply a reversal of the Pass Line bet. Don't Pass Lines will see you win on a 2 or 3 roll, while a 7 or 11 will lose. A throw of 12 means that the bet is a push, and any other numbers must not reappear before a 7 for the player to win.
Again, this wager is a reverse option, but is instead on the Come bet. After the point has been set, you will win on a 2 or 3, lose on a 7 or 11, tie on a 12, and other numbers may not reappear before a 7 is thrown in order to collect a payout.
Big Six, Big Eight:
Another bet that can be placed at any point during a game of craps, the Big Six, Big Eight wager pays out if a 6 or 8 is thrown before a 7. This bet pays out at even odds (1:1).
