History of Craps

The Romans, British, French and Americans: all have laid claim to developing dice-based gambling games over the centuries.

The Romans were meant to have fashioned dice out of pigs' trotters to use in games of chance. Later, Medieval English gamblers were said to have enjoyed a game of 'Hazard' during the 12th century.

The French took up gambling dice after discovering the game in 17th-century gambling houses. And from there, the dice travelled to Canada and the US.

It wasn't until the early 20th-century, however, that John Winn developed the first betting systems for what would become Craps. Winn developed the layout now seen in casinos across the world. Casino Craps made their way to Las Vegas and continued to be enjoyed after World War II ended.

You can now enjoy Craps in most US casinos, and it's even creeping its way into some UK casinos. It's also available to play for free on the best online casinos. Where better to get a feel for the complex betting layout?

How to Play Craps Online

The aim of Craps is simple: bet on the outcome of two dice. Players have a huge range of bets available, from pairs to dice totals.

The first roll: At the start of a game, a 'Come Out' roll is made. Just hit the 'Roll' button to roll the Come Out.

If the two dice thrown make 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 the 'point' is set. The computer will place an 'On' puck on the number so you know what it is. If, however, the total is 2, 3, 7, 11 or 12 the dice must be thrown again until a point is decided.

Bets are now placed and the dice are now rolled until the same number, or a total of 7, is rolled. The Point is then decided all over again.
