The craps table may look a bit confusing at first, but that’s just because there are so many ways to bet and play. It’s actually pretty straightforward: you win or lose based on where you put your chips, and the sum of the two dice after they’re rolled.
Craps tables all look pretty similar, so if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. Generally they have two ends that are mirror images of each other. The two ends have the same betting options—they simply provide more space for players to play. Get familiar with the names of few common bets and you’ll be comfortable at the craps table in no time.
One thing to note before you get started is, if you see a disk on the table that says “OFF,” it means a new round is starting soon, and it’s safe to put your chips on the table. Always put your chips on the table right in front of where you’re standing. The first roll of the dice is called the come-out roll.
