It’s easy to understand the rules of craps for dummies if you are a dummy, but it gets tricky if you are playing for money. The rules of craps for dummies were created by a team of gambling experts who want to share their knowledge with people who would then be willing to bet on those dummy dice. Each dummy that is rolled will correspond to a real life object or situation, and depending upon which way the roll goes, you will get your money back or lose it. It’s a fun way to learn the game, and it’s also a great way for people to learn how to bet in a more controlled environment than just a casino.
You will start off with a set of rules that will allow you to start placing bets. First off, there is a pass line bet. This is where you place a stake that is equal to the Guess House’s house value. You can’t place this stake when the ball is in the middle of any zone, and you have up to nine seconds to make your decision. If you miss your call, then you will lose this stake.
A straight bet allows you to place a bet without a running off the board. This means that you can put as much money as you want on the ball and it will still count as a win, no matter what the final result is. With a straight bet, you can only raise the amount of money that is on the ball. Keep in mind that a big 8 is worth eight dollars on the board, so if you have ten dollars to place on the ball and the dealer says that the ball is a big eight, you will have to raise that amount by ten dollars.
A third type of craps rule is the die roll. This tells you what the odds are that the player will come out with the outcome that you want. For example, if the dealer says that the next roll will be a three, you can bet a three at all costs. However, if the dealer says that the next roll will be a seven, you can’t bet a three because it would cost you seven times as much as a three. Remember that the odds are always against you, so it doesn’t really make sense to base your decisions on them.
The last of the craps rules is the betting rules. Again, this is pretty self explanatory. You can’t use the dice if you don’t want to play craps. As long as you are aware of the odds and the general rules, you should be fine.
The final category is the pass line bet. This is used to simulate blind bets where the people who pass through the craps lanes don’t know what cards are coming up. This category is best used with bets of at least two dollars. This allows people to get more involved in the game without having to worry about being the person who “crashed” or “passed” the previous bet.
