Multi-Roll Bet

These are bets that stay on the table for multiple rolls and are only resolved when a losing roll occurs. You can only place these bets during certain points of the game. Here are all the situations you can make a Multi-Roll bet.

Available During Come Out Roll (Puck is OFF)

Pass Line
The Pass Line bet is one of the most popular bets in Live Craps. For this bet, you are wagering on the Shooter to win. Rolls of 7 or 11 will win you even money - while rolls of 2, 3 or 12 will lose. If a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 is rolled, then the the Point is established (please read our how to play guide below for more details).

Don't Pass
You are wagering on a Shooter loss for this bet - it's the opposite of the Pass Line bet. If a 2 or 3 is rolled - you will win. If the roll is a 12, the bet is a push. If any other number is rolled 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 the Point is established.

Available During Point Roll (Puck is ON)

If a 7 or 11 is rolled, your bet will payout on 1:1. Rolls of 2, 3 or 12 are losing bets. If any other total is rolled, the Point is established. The dice will continue to be rolled until a 7 or the Point is re-rolled.

Don't Come
A Don’t Come bet is the opposite of the Come bet. If the first roll after placing the bet is 2 or 3, the player wins even money. If the sum is 12 you push. If the roll is a 7 or 11 you lose. If any other total is rolled - the Point is established and the dice will is re-rolled until a 7 or the Point number is rolled again.

Odds bets can be placed once the Point has been established - and will payout depending on the number rolled.

Take Odds - Pass Line/Come
Pays if the dice roll is a 7 - Odds will win with the addition of your original bet.

Lay Odds – Don’t Pass/Don’t Come
Pays if the dice roll is a 7 - Odds will win with the addition of your original bet.

Available Anytime (Puck is OFF or ON)

Place to Win/Place to Lose
On these bets, you are wagering on a win or lose outcome for specific number bets. 

Placing a bet that a number will be rolled before a 7.

Placing a bet that a number will be rolled after a 7.

Rolling 4, 6, 8 or 10 as a pair is called a Hardway. You can bet on four types of Hardway bets. If you roll a Hardway combination, the bet wins. The bet loses if a 7 is rolled. Combinations that aren't pairs will also lose.

How to Play Live Craps

In craps, players bet on the outcome of a two dice roll. In landbased casinos, this dice rolling would be fulfilled by the "Shooter". For Live Craps online, this role is managed by a mechanical arm which throws the dice. The role of the presenter is to load up the dice into the arm - and facilitate banter in the chat.

You can play live craps in many different ways - and there are plenty of choices when it comes to betting. One of the most common bet types is the Pass Line bet - which can only be played during a Come Out Roll. Here's how a game with this bet works.

Come Out Roll

When the pick is turned to "OFF", you may select and place your chips on the Pass Line betting spot. You can now see on the betting grid that 7 and 11 are potential winners for this type of bet. Once the betting round is finished, the arm will throw the dice. There are three scenarios based on this roll:

  • Dice roll is 7 or 11: Your bet is a winner and is now resolved (Puck will stay OFF)
  • Dice Roll is 2,3 or 12: Your bet loses and is now resolved (Puck will stay OFF)
  • Dice Roll is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10: Puck will turn to ON and placed on won total. This will now commence the Point roll.

The Point Roll

Once the Point has been established, your bet will remain on the Pass Line. Your Pass Line bet will now stay until the Point is won - or you roll a 7, resulting in a losing outcome.

You can place an Odds bet during the Point - a circle will now be placed around your Pass Line wager. If you win on a Pass Line bet - the Odds bet will also win. The payouts of the bet will depend on the value of the Point. You can continue to place bets while you're in the Point Roll. 

The Pass Line bet is not resolved until a 7 is rolled - or the Point number has been rolled. In the event of either roll, the puck will change to OFF and the Come Out roll will resume.

Live Craps Strategies & Tactics

One of the most popular strategies for Craps is the Iron Cross system - a strategy that presents a near-guaranteed winning opportunity. To use this strategy, you must wait for a Come Out Roll and the Point to be established. With these events in place, bet on 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 and 12 plus 5, 6 and 8. With this strategy, you are betting on all possible numbers minus the 7. If a number appears - you will win! If a 7 is rolled, then you will lose all the bets.
