thanks for stopping in so you want to

learn how to play craps if you wrote

walk into casino and hear people

hollering and yelling and screaming to

the top of their lungs giving each other

high-fives complete strangers then you

go check it out and you put the table it

looks like something really complicated

all these chips different colors dice

money coming and going a stick moving

around like he’s trying to hit

somebody’s hand pretty intimidating

isn’t it

well it was intimidating to me until I

started learning the game and for the

most part it’s pretty easy and it’s

really fun if you’ve never played it and

you learn how to play it it could be

really excited the first rule as you

know is you don’t want to play with the

money you can’t afford to lose okay so

let’s learn how to play when you walk up

to the table you’ll see four men from

the casino working there if you look at

the chart here the top center portion

there you’ll see the box band the box

man is usually sitting down he’s more

experienced in the other three guys he’s

constantly watching what’s going on the

types of bets if they’re betting

correctly if the dealers in the stickman

are doing their job if he sees something

that going right he’ll tell the dealer

the stick man to correct it 99.9% of

time the box man is dressed to the nines

he’s usually in a suit the dealer’s and

the stick man if they have any questions

they go to the Box man the box man is

the boss he usually stays there for

longer times than the dealer’s than the

stick man the stick man rotate if you

look on the upper right hand corner that

dealer will rotate to the stick man

position so you have a new dealer

communion so he takes over the guy on

the upper right hand side that dealer

then moves to the stick man position

and takes over the stick man’s job the

stick man then moves to the upper

left-hand corner to that dealer position

while that dealer goes and takes a break

this happens

approximately every half an hour to an

hour everybody switches except the box

man

the Box man stays the Box man is the guy

that the dealers and the stick man when

you come in and play and you lay your

money down the dealers and the stick men

give the money to the box man okay let’s

talk about the basic game let me break

it down to you so it’s fairly easy let’s

say I had the numbers 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

11 12 and I told you pick one number

let’s say you picked the number six now

I hand you two dice and say roll as many

times until you get a six let’s say you

roll once twice three times four times

the fifth time now you roll six and you

win pretty simple huh now if the rules

were like this you’d be winning a lot of

money but the casinos don’t make money

by you winning they make money by you

losing so they try to change the odds so

now okay so this is what they did

what they did was they gave you less

numbers which is the four five six eight

nine and ten and they said when you

throw the dice the first time that’s

going to be your point number in other

words let’s say you throw the dice and

you come up with a eight that’s your

point you don’t choose the point the

dice chooses for you on the first roll

okay so you get the dice you throw them

and let’s say an eight comes up that’s

your point for you to win you have to

roll an eight again

this you know a second time so you keep

rolling until you have an eighth let’s

say you roll once twice and you roll an

eight you want but they added some

additional rules they said okay on the

first roll when you’re trying to

establish a point because that’s what

you’re doing is trying to establish a

point on the first roll if you roll a 7

or 11 on the first roll you

automatically win so let’s say for

instance because they’re a 7 and 11 is

not in those numbers correct so let’s

say the first roll you you throw is a 7

you win

if you roll 11 you win but if you on the

first roll if you throw a 2 a 3 or a 12

you lose again if you roll a 2 on the

first time you roll you could roll a 2 3

or 12 you lose okay so you’ve

established a point meaning that on the

first roll you didn’t hit a 7 or 11 8

and you didn’t lose with a 2 3 and a 12

so let’s say you got the number 8 so 8

is your point after you established the

point and you’re trying to roll to hit

your point in this case the 8 if you

roll a 7 before you hit the 8 you lose

so while you’re rolling

1 2 3 times to get the 8 if you hit a 7

you lose and essentially that’s the game

now there’s more to it and we’ll get

into it but that’s essentially the game

ok so let’s go to the craps table now

okay so when you walk up to a craps

table this is kind of what you’re gonna

see 90% of the craps tables are gonna

look like this they changed from design

but essentially they all look the same I

know it looks a little intimidating but

if you look at it you can see on top the

number

like we talked about before the four

five six eight nine and ten so you see

that up on the upper left hand side you

can also see it on the right hand side

so you’re wondering why do they have two

numbers or two sets of numbers but

you’re seeing essentially as two game

boards or or two sides you have a left

side and a right side and what it is is

two games being played at the same time

or two areas being played at the same

time that’s why you have to do this one

on the left and one on the right of the

box man in this reverse view they’re

watching each side so I know this looks

a little intimidating so what I’m going

to do is we’re going to show you half

the board because when you play you’re

only looking at half the board okay when

you walk up to a table one of the first

things you want to look for is to find

out what the minimum bets you’re allowed

to make at that table typically there

are five dollar tables ten dollar tables

twenty five dollar tables and fifty

dollar tables and on up so what you’re

looking for is a five dollar table so

what you’re looking for is a card or a

placard somewhere inside the table you

see around them whether to dealers or

the Box man are sitting and it kind of

looks like this it’ll say craps table in

minimum you know say it’ll say $5

minimum it’ll say ten twenty five and so

on and also say what’s your maximum bet

is and then I’ll have the odds which are

on the bottom three times odds four

times five times lots and we’ll get into

that later but that’s what you’re

looking for is you want to find out the

what the minimum bit is okay so we’re

going to do now so we’re going to walk

up to the table and we’re going to give

the dealer our money so we can play

we’re going to be standing on the left

side of the table which would be the

right side of the box man

okay when should you put your money down

what you’re looking for is that white

puck when that puck is on don’t put your

money down because the game is still in

play

but you want to do is wait till it goes

off once it’s off you can put your money

down alright so we’re gonna get our cash

or we’re gonna put it right at the come

bar there to come area we’re giving them

200 cash then the dealer’s gonna take

the cash he’s gonna hand it over to the

Box man the box man then is gonna grab

the money he’s gonna count it out so the

cameras can see how much money you’ve

given him so there’s a recording of it

usually they give you $100 in nickels

and for $25 chips once the box man sets

your chips up he hands them over to the

dealer then the dealer then hands them

over to you and he’ll put him in the

come area it’s your responsibility to

take the chips off the table and put

them in the rack

okay this is something that wasn’t

taught to me in the very beginning if I

wanted to place a bet where do I put the

chips and where am I allowed to put my

chips this is the area where you can

place your bets it’s sort of like a

self-serve area the four five six eight

nine ten area that belongs to the dealer

you’re not allowed to put any chips in

that area if you want to place a bet up

there you can put it in the come area

until your dealer will kind of bet you

want to place then there’s the area on

the far right bottom there those are the

proposition bet areas you don’t want to

put any chips there again those are

being watched by the stickman if you

want to place a bet there just let the

stickman know put the chips in the cum

area and he’ll grab them and no place

the bit that you want okay so when do we

know when it’s our turn well as you can

see by the arrows the games the game

moves in a clockwise motion and we’re

standing where that yellow dot is so

when do you know it’s your turn well

it’s when the guy on the right side of

you hits a seven and loses the stickman

will tell you are you playing or do you

want to play and you’ll of course answer

yes or no this is where the choice you

make could change your life forever with

all the money getting win or it could

turn out to be the biggest mistake in

your life just kidding okay we found a

five dollar table and replace five

dollar chip on the pass line the dealer

now is going to slide over five dice

you’re gonna pick two dice out of the

five you can only use one hand to grab

the dice you can’t use two hands you

always use one hand even when you’re

shaking the dice okay you got the dice

in your hands and you’re shaking them or

do you thrown let me show you on this

chart

okay currently we are the yellow dot

we’re gonna pick up the dice and we’re

gonna throw them against the wall where

the yellow arrows at if we were on the

right side of the table the red dot

we’re gonna throw it with the red arrows

at against the wall

when you throw the dice it must hit the

wall for it to count so with all that

said now we can begin to play craps

we’re gonna put a $5 chip on the pass

line why do we put on the pass line well

90% of the people play the pass line and

this is the reason why okay if you look

at this chart you can see the dice how

many combinations it takes to make the

number so if you look at two you can see

there’s only one way to make it – if you

look at three there’s two ways four

there’s three ways five there’s four

ways six five ways and the most is seven

there’s six ways to make a seven but

then if you look at eight there’s less

of a combination which is five nine is 4

10 is 3 11 is – 12 is one way so you can

see the many different ways now if you

remember the chart in the beginning if

you remember in the beginning I said on

the first roll if you roll a 7 or 11 you

win but if you roll a 2 3 and a 12 you

lose now let’s go back to the chart ok

as you can see in the blue boxes a 7 and

11 you have 8 different ways or 8

chances of winning now look at the red

boxes you have four chances of losing

the red box you can see there’s 4

combinations to lose but in the blue box

there’s 8 combinations to win so your

chances of winning are pretty high

remember this only applies to the first

roll of the dice if you don’t hit the

red box or the blue box then you hit the

other numbers 2 4 5 6 8 9 and 10 and

those are your point numbers so that’s

why people play the pass line there’s a

higher percentage of winning and that’s

why if you hit a 7 on the first roll

everybody’s playing the pass line if you

win they all weigh in and that’s why

they jump up and down because you won

which means they also won

okay we’ve got our chips we place our

pass line bet dealer has handed us five

dice to pick out of we pick out two

we’re gonna roll 7-eleven we wind two

three and twelve we lose the number is

10 the point is 10 the dealer moves the

puck on the on position to ten you roll

again for nothing six nothing

remember we’re trying to roll a 10-7 we

lose dealer takes our chip putt goes off

and it goes to the next player to the

left of me so let’s try it again

counseling bit craps three we lose

dealer takes a chip place another pass

line bet

9 the point is 9

okay now we want to roll a nine we don’t

want a seven because if we roll a seven

we lose five eight six eight nine we win

leader plays this even money turns the

puck off it’s our responsibility to take

the chips off the table okay to roll

again remember seven eleven first roll

wins two three twelve we lose eight the

point is eight dealer takes the puck

puts it on on to signify that the point

is eight

three craps nothing two craps nothing

five nothing five nothing you want to

hit an eight to win we hit a seven it

was six nothing

five nothing 9 6 9 9 10 9 6 5 11 9 8 we

win dealer pays us even money

it turns the puck off now you know how

to play the basic game of craps now

let’s look at placing odds or taking

odds have you ever been at a racetrack

and you get a tip on a hot horse or you

had a casino and someone tells you that

a slot machine is paying out so you go

there to play that machine hoping that

it does exactly what they said well the

same thing here with the pass line odds

bet or taking odds taking the odds bet

on the pass line is the best bet in the

house let me show you how to do that ok

so we’re going to do a pass line bet and

what we need to do is establish a point

so let’s say we roll a four dealers

gonna move the puck from off to the on

position on for now we can make our odds

bet we’re gonna put one unit behind our

five dollar pass line bet and we roll

and let’s say you roll a four

Wynn correct what is the pay on your

pass line bit you get paid even money so

you get five dollars on your odds bet

you get paid two to one so you get $10 –

for everyone

once you’ve on pick up your winnings

what if you put two units on the Oz bet

what would that pay the pass line bet

gets paid even money one to one so

that’s five dollars the odds bet you get

paid to two one two times two equals

four

you have two units so that’s four units

you get paid which is $20 now what if we

bet three units well as you know the

pass line bet pays one to one so that’s

five dollars the odds bet gets paid two

to one so 2 times 3 is 6 so that’s 6

units 6 units equals $30 you won $30

don’t forget to take your chips off the

table now what if you wanted to put 4

chips on the table can you do that no

you can’t why not because the casino

won’t let you

well how do you know that well do you

remember the chart in the very beginning

that we were looking at this one if you

look on the chart on the bottom left

where it says 3 times 4 times 5 times

odds that’s what it’s referring to the 3

applies to the 4 and the 10 the 4

applies to the 5 and the 9 and the five

times applies to the 6 and 8

what does it mean it means the max cause

you can play on the forum the tan is

three times how can i play more money on

the for intent is there any way of doing

that

well yes you can instead of betting one

unit on the pass line bet two units

instead and what that’s gonna do is give

you double times the odds two times the

odds so now two times three is six six

is the max odds you can have on two

units but is it pay well it pays even

money on the pass line so that’s ten

dollars

okay on the odds bet it’s two to one so

you have six two times six is twelve

twelve times five equals sixty dollars

you won $60 okay here’s another way to

look at it I put this simple spreadsheet

together

it’s the pass line odds bets you would

place on the four and ten remember Max’s

odds you can play is three times so you

have one unit

meaning the five dollars that she

initially put on the pass line okay so

because you have one unit that allows

you to bit max up to three times that’s

this here three times but we’re all

gonna you know you know just for

teaching purposes we’re going to put one

unit down so that’s the one unit we’re

gonna have one unit here one five

dollars that’s this here one unit equals

five dollars so the odds on the four and

ten are two to one so two times your bet

so two times five equals ten if you put

down two units which is ten dollars it’s

two times 10 equals 20 that’s if you put

two units to five dollar chips here

you can put three three chips equals $15

so you have three chips here and that

would equal $15

it pays 2 to 1 so 3 1 it would pay 2

times 15 equals 30

so hopefully this kind of shows you what

what the breakdown is on taking the odds

on the pass line okay so now we were

talking about if you want to increase

that so you would instead of putting one

unit here on the pass line you would put

two units so let’s change this to two

and see what happens

now that we change this to two units

would it be $10 it would be 2 times 1

would be 2 so you’d have 2 units here

and those 2 units would equal $10 so 2

times 10 equals 20 2 times 2 units is 4

so 4 times $5 is $20 correct so now 2

times 20 equals 40 and that’s what you

would win if you put 4 chips down

because you now you’re using 2 units so

now if you move on 2 times 3 originally

was 3 but now you’ve doubled it so now

this turns into 6 so 2 times 3 is 6 6 $5

chips down here equals $30 right okay if

you won the payoff would be 2 times 30

equals 60 and then you can you know I

mean you can go as high as you want

whatever your the tables max bets is I

think

throw it down like $3,000 you can bet to

maximum $3 you know whatever combination

let’s we put this to three see what

happens

you know these bets just keep going up

so hopefully that helps a little bit

okay

now let’s learn how to take odds on the

5 and 9 okay we’ve established the point

5 these rules also apply to the 9 so

since we have a single bet on the pass

line

can we put one chip or one unit of 5

dollars behind the pass line well you

could but the arts are three to two or

in simple math one and a half one and a

half times your bet so if you look at

this chart so you can see on this chart

here taking odds on the 5 and 9 the odds

are three to two or in simple math and

one and a half times your bet

so if we bet five dollars or one unit

five times one and a half equals 750 the

casino doesn’t give out change so what

they’re going to do is they’re going to

round it down to seven dollars so you’re

going to lose 50 cents so the better bet

is to get six dollars six and a half

times one and a half equals nine so it’s

the better bet you don’t lose any money

okay now these rules remember also apply

to the nine so we’ve established our

point which is the five we’ve put our

odds bed or we’re taking the odds and

that’s the six dollars and we roll and

we hit a 5 and we win now what does this

pay well your 5 and 9 pays even money on

the pass line and your single unit of

six dollars pays nine dollars

what if we played two units on the 5 and

9 what would that pay well it would pay

even money on the pass line and your two

units of 10 dollars would get paid $15

ok now what if we played three units

well in order for you to get paid

correctly you have

to put down $16 now what would that pay

well it would pay even money on the pass

line and on your three units of $16 it

would pay $24 now being the five and

nine we’re allowed to play four times

odds so what if we put down four times

odds what would we get paid well again

your pass line would get paid even money

and your four units of $20 gets paid $30

okay let’s look at our spreadsheet now

hopefully this will break it down for

you a little bit better so you get a

better visual what the numbers look like

so here’s our five and nine okay on the

five nine we get 4 times odds okay so if

you bet one unit remember one unit here

it’s just five dollars if we place one

unit we remember we had to use six

dollars and that’s where the six dollars

as it goes here behind the line so one

and a half times the bet so 1.5 times

six equals nine so the payout is nine

okay so if we do two units two units

would be ten okay 1.5 times 10 equals 15

okay if we use three units when we say

three units would be 16 dollars here

okay so it’ll be three five zero one

okay

three units equals 16 we have to pay 16

that way we get an even number okay on

the payout here so 1.5 times 16 equals

24 now like I was saying the five and

nine allows us not three times but four

times odds so we get a one more chip we

get to add it

so for one unit we can do fortune for

four units so four units equals $20 four

times five equals 20

okay so one and a half times 20 equals

30 okay and the same thing now if we

wanted to get you know two if we wanted

to win more play more odds you know we

would have to put two units or ten

dollars here on the pass line so if we

did that let’s just change this number

here okay so what we’re gonna do now is

we’re going to change this these units

to from one to two again instead of

putting five dollars we’re going to put

ten dollars two units here on the pass

line okay so if we move this to two

units see how this increases now okay

so we’re allowed two units remember we

had to pay the six dollars now two times

six equals twelve

okay so the the payout on that would be

one and a half times 12 equals eighteen

okay so two units times two is four so

five dollars four times five is ten

ma excuse me 20 so one and a half times

20 equals 30 okay so and if you want to

increase this obviously if we go to

three those odds

you know I mean that you know you have

to come up with more money it’s to get

more of a payout so hopefully this

explains it a little bit easier okay now

we’re gonna learn how to take odds on

the last group of numbers the 6 and the

8 with the 6 and the 8 this time we get

5 times the odds this one’s pretty

simple this bet pays 6 to 5 for every $5

it pays $6

now we put our $5 on the pass line which

is one unit we roll we get a six six is

our point now we put our odds bet and we

put a $5 chip behind the line what is a

pay the single unit odds bet for the six

and eight pays even money on the pass

line and the single unit odds bet gets

paid six dollars

now what if you would have taken odds on

two units what does that pay well again

it pays even money on the pass line and

for your two units

it pays $12 and

of six now let’s look at as if we take

an odds with three units $15 well again

it pays even money on the pass line and

with your three units it pays eighteen

okay now what does four units pay well

again the pass line gets even money and

four chips

4 times 6 is 24 you win $24 now the

sixth and the eighth are the only

numbers that you get five times odds so

what is it paint

well the pass line gets even money and

five times six

you win $30 once again don’t forget to

pick up your chips

okay so let’s look at the spreadsheet

again with the six and eight here’s our

six and eight

the odds are five times so you allowed

five times for one unit so here’s one

unit it pays the odds are six to five

which means for every five dollars you

put down it pays six so we’re gonna play

weight you know we get a single unit

here which will be on the past line so

we’re gonna play one unit on the Oz bed

of five dollars six times one equals six

and that’s what you would get paid so

for two units you’d have to put down ten

dollars

so two times six equals twelve twelve is

what you would win if you put down three

units which would be fifteen dollars

babies three times six equals eighteen

and that’s what you would get paid if

you put down four units would be $20 so

four times six equals 24 and that’s what

you would win now if you paid if you

played five units would be five times

six or maybe five times five dollars

which could be $25 so five times six

equals 30 and that’s what you would win

now again this is for single for a

single unit the odds for single unit

again we get five times two the odds so

if you wanted to bet more money or put

down more money we would have to change

the unit’s up here we would have to put

two chips so let’s see what happens when

we put two chips so we change that to

two so we change this to two

now you can see how much increase so 2

units of 1 so 2 times 1 is 2 so 2 times

5 is 10 so it would pay $12 so this

would be really 2 here so 2 times 6 is

12 2 times 2 is 4 so 4 times 5 is 20 so

4 times 6 is 24 so 2 times 3 would be 6

so 6 times 5 equals 30 that’s what you

would put down for the bed okay

so 6 times 6 is 36 okay so now they get

4 times excuse me

2 times 4 equals 8 so 8 times 5 is 40

dollars you would have to put $40 yeah

okay

so now 8 times 6 is 48 that’s what you

wouldn’t win so now we go to 2 times 5

is 10 so 10 times 5 is 50 dollars we put

down for the odds bet your max odds bed

for 2 units would be 50 dollars okay so

10 times 6 equals 60 of course you know

again if you want to bet more money

depending on what your table allows I

think I put down $3,000 so you know you

can increase these units here let’s say

we put 3 chips okay let’s do the step 3

so now you can see okay so 3 times 5 is

15 15 times 5 is 75 so 15 times 6 you

would win 90 dollars out of your $75 bet

okay anyway again I hope this you know

kind of helps you in break it down when

I did this visually I understood more

about what was going on with the with

the odds bets so hopefully this helps

okay let’s put what we’ve learned and

see how it applies to the game again

we’re going to play the pass line and

we’re gonna take bets so are we gonna

just you know to play $5 so we’re gonna

place $5 on the pass line evolve

you can see we had a thousand dollars

starting bank here so we get a nine so

the nine they’re gonna wager five

dollars and six so we can get paid nine

and we’re just deleting one what you got

one unit so we’re just going to do one

unit they’re in a roll

we got an eight you’re gonna roll again

you got a seven we lost that’s okay five

dollars on the pass line you roll we got

a six six

we don’t play some odds bit there it’s

same excellence is 25 those two Mac

sauce $25 and the odds roll eight

we roll 12 3 craps

8 8 9 8 5 8 7 out we lost okay let’s try

it again

71 first row number 7 and 11 on the

first roll wins 2 3 and 12 we lose 10 6

it’s good let’s get some logs up there

it’s just plain double odds it’s gold

next slides and they only allow 15 3

times remember the odds on the 4 and 10

here we have 5

you got a 8/8 you’ve got 19 about 8 to 9

there’s our six you missed craps – 7 out

shut again for get it all up there eight

nine four we want so you won the five

dollars and two times odds we have 15

so 2 times 15 is 30 so you want $30 only

about this matter so we want 35 okay

you can see what we won here okay so

let’s go find back then looks like we’re

done 25 bucks

okay everyone again for five dollars

because the 7-eleven first row wins here

we got an eight

let’s go ahead and leave that one okay

we’re down just four bucks

what’s wrong

ten that’s another tough one though

let’s try his disappearance back sort of

it happened 15 row 7 October again

6

let’s get back sauce on there which is

25 5 so it out again sheesh for let’s

get back sauce up there happen every 41

135 we’re down what 19 bucks let’s get

up there again

$25 were up 16 bucks okay 71 on the

first roll we’re up 21 bucks

six

let’s go back slots on the six

which is 2574 no it’s gonna be fine

let’s get back songs over there you

don’t have to play max on so you can

babe one two or three but we’re just

playing this go max well by the way do

not play online gambling because you’ll

never win it’s rare that you’ll win I’m

not saying you don’t win it’s just that

there’s more people losing on there than

winning what you want to do is go into a

brick-and-mortar casino where it’s

regulated they have inspectors coming in

making sure everything is being done

correctly state inspectors so don’t ever

play online craps you know of course

we’re just here practicing and playing

but if you’re seriously gonna play craps

practice here but don’t go online and

put money go to your brick-and-mortar

casino you have better odds they’re

better chances of winning okay let’s

roll three craps three 10-8 we’re

looking for this five and we don’t want

some six

7l max also not good crops to lost

aircraft you know 11 we 171

perhaps three we lost so who won

first rule seven eight twenty eight

let’s get back size up there

you know spikes nice too

six-four

eight we won 35 bucks cool so now we’re

just down 2012 we won

oh we lost scuse me two three and twelve

you lose in the first row eight our

point let’s go max odds

let’s mix on nine nine a lot of muffins

Wow $35 $11 five that’s gonna be a tough

like there but we’ll play it any

oh hey we won that one awesome bro –

almost 50 bucks 8 we’ve been hitting

aids since going back sods –

9:8 we want it another $35 ruff 81 bucks

whose 71 on the first roll nice five

that’s gonna be a tough one but we won

the last time let’s go max odds seven

out bummer

okay 71 on the first roll nice eight my

gosh again a little tough but if it hit

eight tonight lose seven out bummer

and I know came night shoot we should

have played two chips there but we

wouldn’t known but we’ll play mac salons

anyway perhaps three it’s pretty much a

doll on the wings so far but even now

five six nine seven so you can see how

luck absent flows max once yes

for 391 I’ve got that 167 out what

happens six now that should be an easy

number because there’s more ways to make

a six and eight then there is a five and

nine and a four and ten so the odds are

on in our favor except for the seven the

seven has six ways of making a seven the

six and eight has five ways of making a

six of eight

we want it case we’re up 26 bucks so

anyway you can see you know I mean go

online there’s a lot of these practice

online websites okay guys this is how

you play basic craps the pass line bet

and how to take odds on the pass line to

get really good takes a lot of practice
