How to Play Craps at a Casino Party

How to Play Craps at a Casino Party

Hi there, high rollers! Get ready to roll the dice and win big at the craps table. This game is all about luck and strategy, so buckle up and let's dive in!

Basic Rules:

Craps is played with two dice. The game revolves around the shooter, who rolls the dice, and the other players who place bets on the outcome of the roll. Let's break it down step by step:

  1. Find a spot at the table and place your bets on the Pass Line or Don't Pass Line.
  2. The shooter will roll the dice for the Come Out roll. If they roll a 7 or 11, the Pass Line bets win. If they roll a 2, 3, or 12, the Don't Pass Line bets win.
  3. If the shooter rolls any other number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10), that number becomes the Point.
  4. Once the Point is established, the shooter will continue rolling until they either roll the Point again (Pass Line bets win) or roll a 7 (Don't Pass Line bets win).
  5. Keep an eye on the Odds Bets! These additional bets can be placed once the Point is established and offer higher payouts.

Betting Strategies:

Now, let's talk about some betting strategies to maximize your chances of winning:

1. Pass Line Bet:

Place your bet on the Pass Line before the Come Out roll. If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11, you win even money (1:1). If they roll a 2, 3, or 12, you lose. Once the Point is established, you can also place an Odds Bet to increase your potential payout.

2. Don't Pass Line Bet:

This bet is the opposite of the Pass Line. If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11, you lose. If they roll a 2 or 3, you win even money. If a 12 is rolled, it's a push (tie). Once the Point is established, you can place an Odds Bet against the Point.

3. Come Bet:

This bet is placed after the Point is established. If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11, you win. If they roll a 2, 3, or 12, you lose. If any other number is rolled, your bet moves to that number. You can then place an Odds Bet on the new Point.

4. Don't Come Bet:

Similar to the Don't Pass Line, this bet is placed after the Point is established. If the shooter rolls a 7, you win. If they roll the Point number, you lose. If a 2 or 3 is rolled, it's a push. If a 12 is rolled, you win. You can place an Odds Bet against the new Point.


Here are the payouts for some common bets:

  • Pass Line Bet: 1:1
  • Don't Pass Line Bet: 1:1
  • Odds Bet (Point of 4 or 10): 2:1
  • Odds Bet (Point of 5 or 9): 3:2
  • Odds Bet (Point of 6 or 8): 6:5

About the Event

30th Birthday Party

After doing a bit of research for a Casino themed 30th bday party we booked with 21 Fun and couldn't wait for the big day. The crew arrived on time and got everything set up super quickly. The manager of the night, Brandon, was very professional and kept things running smoothly all night. Overall very impressed with the delivery and would recommend. Also Debbie was extremely helpful in answering questions and making sure we had all the info we needed.

Office Warming Party

We were having an office-warming party at our new location and wanted to add an extra activity for the guests.Not only did the adults have a great time at the casino tables; the kids were playing as well (the dealers were turning it into a fun math game for them). Running a busy office I have found it very rare being able to book something with ease and not worry about them showing up, and that was the case with 21 Fun (plus the pricing is fantastic for what you get)! If you have any doubts about hiring 21 Fun at your next event, all I can say is do it and you won't regret it!

Poker Tournament Fundraiser

Professional dealers, fun time!

Our school had a poker tournament fundraiser and 21 Fun Casino brought the tables, chips and dealers.

A great time was had by all, and the execution was flawless.

Thanks 21Fun!

Corporate Event

We hired 21 Fun to operate a casino at our corporate event. They did an amazing job. Having them at the party really created a fun atmosphere. They were helpful with first time gamblers and easy to work with. We didn't leave them with a specific floorplan but they came up with the perfect setup. Having the casino was a game-changer for how many people enjoyed the event. I would be happy to hire them again.

Awesome Dealers!

Super fun and friendly staff! We really enjoyed playing Craps with Gian. It was our first time and we had no idea what to do. Gian was extremely helpful! We loved his energy, enthusiasm, and sense of humor. We also had the opportunity to meet Ryan at the black jack table. Both dealers were awesome and I recommend them for any party. Thank you guys for a fun night!
