How to play craps
 
Has anyone played craps before on cruise? How this game is played and what are the odds of winning in this game. Can I learn it from some before I go to vacation after 2~3 weeks ?

The casino staff will generally offer a couple of gaming lessons onboard, and if you ask "the dealer" will also assist you as you play.

Craps are one of the easier games to learn, but having said that, they can be pretty intimidating to a newcomer.
Craps is easier than it looks at first glance.

In addition to help from the staff, the first evening may have a low table limit, so beginners can try playing and risk very little.

Informative articles Alton and DonD. I am trying to get what “crap” is all about. Will ask if struck somewhere.
Thanks for the reply.

The basic game is really not hard.

First roll of the dice:

2-3-12 player looses, called "crapped out."
or
7 or 11 Player wins, roll is over
or
4-5-6-8-9-10 now this will be your point and from then on the only thing that matters is that your point number happens before a 7 comes up.

If a 7 comes up you seven ed out and lose.
If your point comes up you win.

That's the basic game. Forget the field, hardways and anything they advertise vocally.

Learn the basic game first and then learn to take the odds behind the pass line and that's all for now.

Next step is to take full odds behind the pass line. That's the whole game while you're at this stage.

Play basic craps and take full odds behind the pass line.

Next lesson, after you understand that is the come bet. Master the pass line bet first.

Stay away from the field and the bets in the middle for sure.

It's a fun game and exciting. Enjoy.
