## History Of Craps

Craps is one of the most popular games at casinos around the world. It was initially developed in the early 1900s in New York City and named after the game’s inventor, William Craps. The game was officially legalized in most states in the U.S in the 1930s. With the legalization of gambling in the United States, casinos started popping up all over the place, and craps became a permanent fixture on their tables. The game is also popular in Canada, where casinos started popping up in the 1960s and 1970s and where it is legal to bet on most sports events and games, not just football and basketball.

## How to Play Craps

The basics of craps are quite simple. You will need to get two dice, and you will throw them one at a time against the side of the table. The object is to get numbers on both dice in a row (a craps combination).

Each time you roll a seven, an eight, or a nine, you will win the amount wagered on that roll, whatever the bet. A two or three will make you even, and a six, a five, or an ace will make you lose. If the dice come up different numbers, you will lose the amount bet on that roll. So essentially, you are wagering on the outcome of a random throw of the dice.

There are more than a dozen different bets you can make with craps. Some of the more common bets are:

• Pass Line – Place a bet on whether or not the next throw of the dice will be a seven, an eight, or a nine.
• Even Money – Place a bet on whether or not the next throw of the dice will be even.
• Point To Point – Place a bet on whether or not the next two throws of the dice will be identical.
• Come Around – Place a bet on whether or not the next two throws of the dice will be in close proximity to each other.
• Don’t Know – Place a bet on whether or not you know the outcome of a particular throw of the dice.
• Royal Flush – Place a bet on whether or not the next two throws of the dice will form a straight, flush, or a full house (a straight and a flush simultaneously).
• Hardway – Place a bet on whether or not the next two throws of the dice will be a seven, an eight, or a nine with the same number of dots on both dice.
• Halfway – Place a bet on whether or not the next two throws of the dice will be a six, a five, or an ace, with one dot or one hole on one of the dice.
• Accent – Place a bet on whether or not the next two throws of the dice will be identical, with one of the dice having one accent mark (an ‘X’) on it.
• Street – Place a bet on whether or not the next two throws of the dice will be a six, a five, or an ace.
• Eight Eight – Place a bet on whether or not the next two throws of the dice will be an eight and a eight.
• All Seven – Place a bet on whether or not the next two throws of the dice will be a seven and a seven.
• Seven Up – Place a bet on whether or not the next two throws of the dice will be a seven and a seven with one of the dice displaying sevens on both ends (for example, a 6-6-6-7-7-7-7).
• Black Jack – Place a bet on whether or not the next two throws of the dice will be a nine and an eight or a six and an eight.
• Red Seven – Place a bet on whether or not the next two throws of the dice will be a seven and a seven but with one of the dice displaying the number seven in the corner (for example, a 5-5-5-7-7-7-7).
