Another great part of playing free online craps in the HTML 5 version that we have here on our site, is that you don’t have to give up great sound, graphics, or even movement fluidity to play the free browser version – you get the full game experience popping up directly on your screen. And of course, in order to play, you don’t have to contribute a single cent in order to practice to your heart's content and really get a feel for the game and the bets you can make before playing for real money. Knowing how the game flows and when and how to make all the different bets are essential.
If you have never played craps online before, or you have but need a refresher, you are in the right place. The first thing you need to know is that craps is played at a large casino table, marked by all the various kinds of bets (but not all) you can wager. The player who rolls the dice is called the shooter, and the shooter will always roll two dice.
A new round of craps begins when you place either a pass line or don’t pass line bet. This is obligatory for the shooter. All other players who want to be a part of the round in the online casino or real-life casino need to also make this minimum requirement bet. Other bets that can be made are outlined below. In the free game on this page, you need to click on the amount you want to ‘bet’ from the chip selection you will see on the side of the screen. Click on the chips you want and then click on the craps table on your screen in the correct place on the table for the bet, in this case, the pass or don’t pass section of the table.
The first roll of the dice is called the ‘come out roll’. If you roll a 7 or 11 in the come out roll, the pass bets win and don’t pass bets lose and the round finishes. If the shooter rolls a 2,3 or 12 (known as the craps numbers), then the pass bet loses and don’t pass bets win, and the round ends. With any other number (4,5,6,8,9, or 10) what is known as the point number is then established, and players can start to make any other bet that they want to make. The round continues until the shooter rolls either the point number or a 7. Pass bets will win when the point number is rolled before the 7, and the don’t pass bets win when the 7 is rolled before the point number.
The other basic bets you need to know are the come and don’t come bets, and the odds bets which can be placed on your original bets (the pass and don’t pass), or the come and don’t come bets. These bets work in practically the same way as the pass and don’t pass bets, however, they can only be placed after the come out roll. These bets are separate, it is more or less like playing your very own personal pass bet instead of it being applicable to all players. As soon as you make the bet, the very next roll of the dice will determine whether you win, lose, or get a separate and individual point number. You win the come bet if your point number is rolled before a 7, and lose if the 7 is rolled first. If you placed a don’t come bet, you win if the 7 is rolled before your own individual point number, and lose if the point number is rolled first.
You can also lay or take odds on the pass, don’t pass, come, and don’t come bets. What this means is that you can bet multiples of your original bet. This is considered one of the best of all casino bets as it reduces the house edge to almost nothing. It’s not marked on the casino table, you need to place the chips directly behind the bet you want to take/lay odds on.
There are many, many other bets you can place, such as single-roll bets, field bets, hop bets, and numerous multi-roll bets as well. If you would like to learn about these in detail I would suggest to read through the craps rules article, and also the craps strategy article in order to learn about the odds and payouts of each one of those bets. Then you can apply all the different kind of bets to the free game in order to practice before you play at an online casino for real money.
Now all that is left for you is to click on the game and start playing – as it launches in the browser, works on all devices, and is completely free of charge, there is nothing but yourself stopping you from becoming the craps online expert you know you can be in order to win big at the online casinos.
