How To Play Craps


Craps is generally seen as a fun and exhilarating game by gambling enthusiasts and can be played at a number of reputable online casinos, such as VegasUSA. If you are not sure how to play craps, then this article is just for you. I plan on going through a simple, yet definitive scrutiny of the basics of how to play craps.

The Craps Pit

When most players walk past the craps pit, the sounds heard are those of players cheering and congratulating each other, all done in a rather boisterous manner. The element that turns most new potential players away from craps is the intimidating atmosphere. Being new to a game where everything seems to move at breakneck speed can seem rather daunting, but if you dare to break into the craps circle, it will soon become apparent that the game itself is not half as intimidating as the surrounding atmosphere.

The Area Of Play

The game of craps is played on a table that is built with the two furthest ends being exact mirror images of each other. This is done only so that more players can be included in the game. Two dice are used, so that the possible numbers that can be rolled range from 2 through 12. The dice are regularly checked for damage and are routinely changed approximately every 8 hours. The casino personnel normally present at a craps table are the stickman, boxman and two dealers.

Playing

All of the players get an opportunity to throw the dice, but this is not necessary as "players" can bet on one thrower. This, then, builds up the feeling of camaraderie between the players which creates the afore-mentioned booming atmosphere.
