A Crash Course in Playing Craps

Part of what makes going to a live casino in Malaysia quite an enjoyable experience is the fact that there are plenty of enjoyable games that you can play in the gambling institution.

One of those games is called “Craps” and it is actually one of the most fast-paced games in a casino. It also tends to gain a lot of attraction since the game’s mechanics is quite easy to understand and you can win a substantial amount of money by making a simple passline bet.

Today, I am going to provide a crash course in playing craps, so be sure to stick around if you want to know how this game is played.

How It is Played

The game of craps is usually played on a long table with pretty high sides. The player would just need to find a certain spot on the table and would ask the dealer for some change and to help you drop your bills where there are no numbers.

In the event that there is already a shooter and a certain point is already established, the player will usually see a round plastic button that will be placed in one of the numbered boxes.

The button is small as it is the same size as a hockey puck. If there is no point number established, the button will just be placed in the middle of the table- just right above the horn bets area. It is important to note that there will be one button placed for each dealer’s side on the table.

If the hockey puck-sized button is placed on top of a number, the player will have to wait until the shooter makes the number or if the total value of the dice is summed to seven. If it is indeed a number seven, the next player will be the one to shoot the dice and so on.


Once you are the next shooter, what you do is to check the limit sign so that you will know how much the minimum bet will be. You will then place the exact amount on the pass line (which is also known as the passline bet) and you get to choose two dice that will be thrown to the table. The dice should then tumble and will hit the back of the wall of the table and that should be just enough to get the game started.

Do keep in mind that you do not need to be the shooter to win in the game. So long as the right conditions are met and so long as you’ve made some bets, then you are eligible to win some money.

When the rolls come out and the dice will be either a 7 or 11, you will win. If the roll totals to 2, 3, or 12, you will lose. The point will be established if the dice rolls out as 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10.

When the point number is established, you will have to roll the dice again. If you roll another point number, you will win. If you roll 7 before another point is made, you lose.
