Learn How to Play Before the Casino Party!

Learn to Play Craps

The game of craps has many exciting aspects to it. The concept of playing craps is to roll a number (a point) with two dice and then roll that same number again before a seven is rolled. The person at the craps table that rolls the dice is called “the shooter.”

When there is a number marked by the “pucks,” it means that the number is the “point” of the game. This is the number that the shooter is trying to make before seven rolls.

Have you ever walked through the casino and heard a big cheer and seen high fives around a large oval table? If you want to get in on that action, it’s essential to learn the ins and outs of how to play craps. The good news? Craps is one of the only games in the casino where the player is in charge of the action with their own hand. You can literally grab the dice, give it a blow for good luck and roll it on down.

In a single roll of the dice, there are a number of combinations in which a player can wager. There is the main game, known as the “Pass Line” and “Don’t Pass” line, but there are many different combinations where you can try and predict how the dice will land. Just remember, the dealers at the table are always there to help you, so don’t be shy.

  • After the come out roll, a roll of seven is a losing roll on the “Pass Line” (the most common bet in craps). NEVER say the number seven at a craps table!
  • Missed the come out roll? Create your own game by placing a bet on the Come Line. The same rules of the Pass Line apply, only you will be playing outside of the main Pass Line game.
  • If you are the one rolling the dice, make sure the roll is hard enough that it hits the back wall.

Learn to Play Roulette

Roulette is one of the most enjoyable games in a casino. No time-consuming learning curve, a variety of bets, not too much math, and a social atmosphere where fortunes can be won if Lady Luck smiles.

Each spin of the wheel provides a multitude of options for the player. A player may bet on single numbers, rows of numbers, or on adjacent numbers. A player also may play colors, odd or even numbers, among others. A bet on a single number pays 35 to 1, including the 0 and 00. Bets on red or black, odd or even pay 1 for 1, or even money.

Be “The Boss” at the Roulette Table!

Roulette, like many Las Vegas-style casino table games, has its own set of slang terms.

  • For example, when you bet on an individual number in roulette, it’s called a “straight-up” bet. A bet between two adjoining numbers is called a “split.”
  • You can also make a “street” bet, which is a bet on three numbers in a single horizontal line. Depending upon the table’s layout, a street bet is made on the line at the end of the three numbers, either to the right or left. (Ask your dealer for help.)
  • A “trio” bet is on made on three numbers at once.
  • A “basket” bet is a bet on five numbers, and is placed at the intersection of 0,00,1,2,3. This bet, by the way, has a house “edge” (or advantage) of 7.89 percent, whereas others have an edge of 5.26 percent, so it’s not the best bet in roulette, but hey, if you hit a lucky streak, there are no bad bets.
  • A “snake bet” zig-zags across the layout, covering the numbers 1, 5, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 23, 27, 30, 32 and 34.
