INSTRUCTIONS FOR CRAPS
How to Play:
Place your bets and roll the dice.

BETTING

Betting the Pass Line:
When the "shooter" rolls a 7 or 11 on the first throw (The Come-out roll) it is referred to as a "natural" and an automatic win. On the other hand, if 2, 3 or 12 rolls, it is called, "craps" and you lose your Pass Line bet.
Any other number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10) becomes your "Point." You win if the "Point" repeats before 7 rolls, and you lose if 7 show before your "Point" is made. Place these bets in the area marked "Pass Line" on the layout.

Betting the Don't Pass Line:
This is the reverse of betting the "Pass Line." You lose on a "natural" 7 or 11, and win if a 2 or 3 rolls (12 is a "standoff," no one wins). If the dice roll 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 it becomes your "Point" and you win if 7 rolls before your "Point" is repeated.
You lose if your "Point" is made before 7 rolls. Place these bets in the area marked "Don't Pass Line" on the layout.

Come Bets:
The simplest explanation of "Come" bets is that you're betting with the dice, exactly as on the "Pass Line," except that "Come" bets are made any time after the "Come-out" roll.
You win on "naturals" 7 or 11, and you lose on "craps" 2, 3 or 12. Any other number becomes your "come-point" and you win if your "come-point" is made before 7 rolls. You make these bets in the area marked "Come" on the layout.

Don't Come Bets:
The reverse of betting the "Come." You lose on a 7 or 11, and win on a 2 or 3 (12 is a "stand-off"). Here you win if 7 rolls before your "come-point" is repeated, and lose if the "come-point" is made before a 7 is rolled.
Place these bets in the area marked "Don't Come" on the layout.

Proposition Bets:
These are all one-roll bets that are decided on each roll of the dice. Here are the payoffs:
Any Seven: 4 to 1
Any Craps (2, 3 and 12): 7 to 1
Eleven (YO): 15 to 1
Hi-Lo (2 and 12): 30 to 1
Horn Bet (2, 3, 11 and 12): 7 to 1 (2 or 12) 3 to 1 (3 or 11)

Hardways:
There are four "Hardway" bets: 4, 6, 8 and 10. "Hardway" bets pay as follows:
Hard 4 & 10: 7 to 1.
Hard 6 & 8: 9 to 1.
To win on a Hardway bet, the dice must show a pair before the number "7" is rolled or any other combination of the "Hardway" number is rolled.
For example, if you have a hard 6, the number must be rolled as 3 & 3, before any combination of a 6 (4/2; 5/1; 2/4; 1/5) is rolled.

Placed Bets:
You may make a "Place Bet" any time on any or all of the following numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. If the number you have "placed" rolls before a 7 you win and are paid as follows:
Point: 4 or 10: 9 chips for each five wagered.
Point: 5 or 9: 7 chips for each five wagered.
Point: 6 or 8: 7 chips for each six wagered.

Buy and Lay Bets:
Buy bets are usually made on the 4 and 10. Lay bets are usually made on the 4, 5, 9 or 10. A buy bet wins if the number rolls before a 7.
A Lay bet wins when 7 rolls before the number. Five percent (5%) is charged for these types of bets.

Field Bets:
This is a one-roll bet that may be made on any roll. If 3, 4, 9, 10, or 11 rolls, you win even money. If 2 or 12 is rolled, you will win at a ratio of 2 to 1 (some casinos will pay 3 to 1 on the number 12).
If any other number rolls you lose. This bet is placed in the area marked "Field" on the layout.
