Most new craps players think of craps as a game of chance, a casino games online that go round around a rolling dice. The real entity of online craps play is in betting. There are different kinds of online craps bets and your ascendancy depends largely upon which bets you use. And if you plan on doing well at craps, you not only need to understand how these bets work, but how much they can help your play.

One of the basic aspects of a craps game is the betting types.There are different kinds of craps bets you can place during the course of a game.

The craps table is the liveliest at online casino, mainly because it offers so many betting types to choose from:

Pass Line Bets/ Odds Bets

This is the only bet you can make on a table game where the odds aren't against you, this is a betting position that is not marked on the betting layout but is regarded as one of the most favorable bets.

The round is instantly won if the “shooter” rolls a 7 or an 11. If craps is rolled like 2, 3 or 12 the player instantly loses.

On the other hand, if the come-out roll manages to establish a point like 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 then you will win only if the point is rolled before a 7. If a 7 is rolled before the poin’ you lose the pass line bet.

Don't Pass Line Bets

This is the opposite of a pass-line bet and is placed before the come-out roll. The bet is won if a 7 is rolled before the point. If, however, the point is rolled before a 7, then you lose.

This bet is also won if the come-out roll is craps like 2 or 3 but is automatically lost if the come-out roll is a 7 or an 11. If the come out roll is a 12, the bet is returned to the player.

Come Bets

This is another bet available and works in a similar way to the pass-line bet. You can only place the come bet, however, after a point has been established.

If the next roll is a 7 or 11, you win. If the next roll is craps with numbers 2, 3 or 12 you lose. If, on the other hand, a 4, 5,6, 8, 9 or 19 is rolled, then the come point is established and an actual come bet can be placed.

The bet is moved from the Come Bar to the box which corresponds to the come point value. You win if the come point is rolled before a 7. You lose if a 7 is rolled before the come point.

Don't Come Bets

Don't come bets are made after the point has been established, the rules for this bet are the same as the don't pass line bet.

If a 2 or 3 is rolled, you win. If a 7 or 11 is rolled, you lose. If a 12 is rolled, the bet is restored to the player in a push.

If, on the other hand, a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 is rolled, the don’t come point is established. This means that the bet is moved from the Don't Come Bar to the box which corresponds to the don’t come point.

Place Bets

Place bets can be made at any point in the game, although they are suspended on the come-out roll. Place bets are a straight bet on any of the numbers 4, 5, 6 , 8, 9 or 10 being rolled before a 7.
