How to Play Craps : How to Back Up Bets in Craps


Hi, I’m Joseph Hickerson, pit manager in a
local casino and on behalf of Expert Village,
I’m going to give the introduction on how
to play casino style craps. In this clip we’re
going to talk about backing up your bet by
taking odds. Backing up a bet with odds is
very simple. We established ourselves with
a pass line bet. Then we establish a point.
In this case, it’s eight. So we’ve now got
a point of eight and we can back those odds
up. It be done by simply placing a bet behind
the number. Some casinos have one to two but
generally the casinos will allow you to back
up with up to twenty times odds. One, two,
three times, twenty times. Pass line bets
are not the only bets that take odds. You
can also back up any come bets by taking odds
on them as well. They pay the same. Remember,
odds are paid depending on what the number
is that you’re rolling for. Six and eight,
for every nickel you have bet, you’re going
to get six dollars back. Five and nine, for
every nickel you have bet, you’re going to
get seven dollars and fifty cents. It’s time
and a half, just like in black jack. And a
four and ten, which are your extreme numbers
to make, get paid double, which means for
every nickel you have bet, you’ll get ten
dollars back.
