Craps is played by several players and is centered on the outcome of a pair of dice. In a nutshell, Vegas Nights Craps players place their bets on numbers that they want to come up and those they don’t. The player who throws the dice is known as the ‘shooter’.
Any of the remaining numbers (10, 9, 8, 6, 5 and 4) are known as the ‘point’.
Should the you throw the point in craps, you must continue to throw until you either throw the point number or a 7. If you throw the point number before you throw a 7, all Pass Line Bets win. Should you throw a 7 first, all Pass Line Bets lose.
As you can imagine, a game of craps can go on for quite a while waiting for either of these numbers to come up. It’s what makes the game of craps so exhilerating and exciting!
