How to Play the Game of Craps

Beginners Guide to Casino Craps


     How many times have you been in a casino, hears all the hollowing and hand clapping when the dice are passing at a craps table and thought to yourself ‘that would be a fun game to play if I only knew how?’ The problem is classes on how to play craps are rarely if ever taught in the casinos anymore. In the 90’s I last saw the signs on an empty craps table advertising lessons in craps the following morning.


When I first played craps 23 years ago, I had read Mike Goodman’s book How to Win at Cards, Dice, Races, Roulette 4 or 5 times. But when I got to the table all strategies I envisioned while read the book went right out the window and I was somewhat bewildered.  I was fortunate that I had several buddies who know the game well to ask questions and tell what to bet on because I did NOT WANT to EMBARRASS MYSELF at the table, cause confusion during the game or slow the game down. I imagine many others feel the same way.
