This is the typical game of Craps where you bet on the the outcome of the dice that you roll.

In the simple game of craps, place your bet on the standard bet.
You can place a bet by either using your default bet, or tapping the screen once for each coin you want to bet.

Next, roll the dice (commonly called shooting the dice) by swiping down with 2 fingers.
The first roll is known as the come-out roll.
If you get a 7 or 11 on the come-out roll, you win whatever you bet.
If you get a 2, 3 or 12 on the come-out roll, you lose, also known as crapping out.
If the roll is any other value, that’s your point.
Then, you keep rolling the dice until you get that point again.
If you get that point, you win, and the round is over.
If you get a 7, you lose, and the round is over.

Single Roll Craps

This is similar as Simple Craps, but also lets you bet on outcome of the next roll.
Unlike Simple Craps, where your bet can last for several rolls of the dice, you either win or lose on the next roll.
If the total of the next roll matches what you picked, you win. Otherwise you lose that bet.
You can combine your bet on Simple Craps with a single roll bet.
You can make multiple single roll bets for each roll, and you can keep making single roll bets on each roll of the dice until your Simple Craps bet wins or loses.

Single bets payouts are:
Total of the roll is 7, payout is 4 to 1.
Total is 2, 3 or 11, payout is 7 to 1.
Dice are 2 and 2, payout is 7 to 1.
Dice are 5 and 5, payout is 7 to 1.
Dice are 3 and 3, payout is 9 to 1.
Dice are 4 and 4, payout is 9 to 1.
Dice are 1 and 2, payout is 15 to 1.
Dice are 5 and 6, payout is 15 to 1.
Dice are 1 and 1, payout is 30 to 1.
Dice are 6 and 6, payout is 30 to 1.

Pass Line and Don’t Pass Craps

This is the simplest of the games of craps that allows you to bet either for a winning roll, or against a winning roll.
Advanced versions of craps take this to another level, but this is a good way to get started.

In this game of craps, you can place your bet on either the PASS LINE or the DON’T PASS BAR.
The PASS LINE bet is the same as the standard bet in the SIMPLE game of craps.
The DONT’ PASS BAR lets you bet against the roll.
When you bet on the DON’T PASS BAR, you win if the results are the opposite of the PASS LINE.
What that means is that if you get a 7 or 11 on the first roll, you lose.
If you get a 2, 3 or 12 on the first roll, you lose, also known as crapping out.
If the roll is any other value, that’s your point.
Then, you keep rolling the dice until you get that point again.
If you get that point, you lose, and the round is over.
If you get a 7, you win, and the round is over.

Full Craps

Full craps provides all of the above bets, plus bets known as COME bet, a DON’T COME bet, a PLACE BET (also known as a BUY bet), and a LAY bet (also known as an ODDS bet).

A COME bet can be thought of as starting an entirely new pass line bet, unique to that player.
When you make come bet, you are betting on the first point number that “comes” from the next roll, and is not made on the first roll.
If a 7 or 11 is rolled, the come bet wins.
If a 2, 3, or 12 is rolled, the come bet loses.
If instead the roll is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, that number becomes the “come-bet point”.
Once the COME-bet point is established, the come-bet wins if the come-bet point occurs before a seven occurs, and it pays one to one.
If a seven occurs before the come-bet point, the come-bet loses.

A DON’T COME bet is opposite of a COME bet
When you make come bet, you are betting on the first point number that “comes” from the next roll, and is not made on the first roll.
If a 2 or 3 is rolled, the DON’T COME bet wins.
If a 7 or 11 is rolled, the DONT’ COME bet loses.
If instead the roll is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, that number becomes the “don’t-come-bet point”.
Once the DON’T-COME-bet point is established, the don’t-come-bet wins if a seven occurs before the don’t-come-bet point and it pays one to one.
If the DON’T-COME-bet point occurs before a 7, the don’t-come-bet loses.

A PLACE bet on one of the numbers 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 is a bet that the number bet on will be rolled before a 7 is rolled.
These bets are considered working bets, and will continue to be paid out each time a shooter rolls the place or buy point number.
By rules, place bets are NOT working on the come out roll but can be “turned on” by the player.

Place bet payouts are slightly worse than the true odds: 9-to-5 on points 4 or 10, 7-to-5 on points 5 or 9, and 7-to-6 on points 6 or 8.
The place bets on the outside numbers (4,5,9,10) should be made in units of $5 in order to receive the correct exact payout of $5 paying $7 or $5 paying $9.
The place bets on the 6 and 8 should be made in units of $6, in order to receive the correct exact payout of $6 paying $7.
Otherwise, the payout will be rounded down to the nearest dollar.

A LAY bet is the opposite of a PLACE bet, where you bet on a 7 to roll before the number that is laid.
Just like the PLACE bet, the LAY bets pay true odds, but because the lay bet is the opposite of the buy bet, the payout is reversed.
Therefore, you get 1 to 2 for the numbers 4 and 10, 2 to 3 for the numbers 5 and 9, and 5 to 6 for the numbers 6 and 8.
For example: A $40 Lay Bet on the 4 would pay $20 on a win.
