Craps game rules
The first roll of the dice in a craps round is called the "come out roll." The basic opening bet in craps, placed just before the come out roll, is called the "pass line bet." Pass line bets immediately win when the shooter's come out roll is 7 or 11, and lose when the come out roll is 2 (snake eyes), 3 (cross eyes), or 12 (box cars). If 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 is rolled on the come out roll, that number becomes "the point." The puck labeled "ON" shows that the point has been established, and is located on the craps table over the box for the number rolled as the point: "4, 5, SIX, 8, NINE, or 10". The shooter now keeps rolling the dice until he rolls the point or 7 to end the round. If the shooter rolls the point first, a pass line bet wins. If, however, the shooter rolls a 7 first (i.e. "sevens out"), a pass line bet loses.
To end a round of craps and resolve pass line bets, the shooter must roll either the point or 7 after the come out roll. There's always a possibility that a craps game can go on all night if the shooter fails to roll the point or 7. Pass line bets can't win until the point is rolled, and can't lose until 7 is rolled. Because unresolved pass line bets may not be removed, players must wait for a roll
of the point or 7 to determine the fate of their pass line bets.
