I am asking about the rules. I was in Tunica,
MS. playing craps, ( I just started playing a couple of months ago). The
shooter shot the dice and one of the dice bounced up and rolled across a man’s
arm, hit his hand and he knocked back on to the table. My question is should
that have been called a no roll? Where can I find a copy of the official rules
on this problem? Thank you, Keith
Craps is not football or
baseball. The rules are ruled by the casino and that is the boxman's job.
In your example, and it often
happens, a wild die hitting another player lands in the field of play and it
is called a roll. The casino is after results, not instant replay. There is no
reason for the roll you described to be given a second chance as far as the
casino is concerned. Hence the phrase, "Craps Shoot"!
Keith, as you log in more hours
at the table, you will witness many questionable results. It's the casino's
game, played by the casino's rules, and they will have the last say and they
do not have to give their reason.
On-line you can find sites that
have the rules for playing but not a rule book on calls. In other words, you
are not going to find an official rule book like in baseball or football.
One war story… Once I was
tossing from table end and I lost one die and it dropped out of my hand in
front of me while the other die flew down the layout to the back wall. The box
made the call..... "Six! Front line winner". I could not believe it.
Keep’em on the layout!
The pit boss was given me hassle about
throwing the dice across the stickperson’s body on the stick left or stick
right is this a rule or is this bs? Today they told me that I couldn't bet a
dollar on hardway numbers unless I place a $15.00 bet either on a number or
pass line bet is this b.s? Thank you and have nice day. Lefty
Lefty, not so much rules of the
game, but remembering that the host of the game calls the shots. They tell us,
we don't tell them. It is a losing argument. It is not like shopping at
Walmart or Burger King… you don’t get it your way.
Never the less, yes they are
giving you the run around and you should just stop playing there. It is BS.
The stick man has to follow the dice. However, many a time I have brushed
close to the stick because he was standing deliberately in my throwing range.
It became a game within the game. No you should not have to make
any additional bets to make a $1 hardway bet. Again, they make up the rules,
sometime on the fly. Screw’em an take your business somewhere else. You will
not win the argument with them. Walking away is your best play.
Again, referring to the previous
question, you will never be able to present a rulebook and show them page 63
where it explains hardway betting.
Good luck at your new casino!
I like to play craps and I win at
it. But I need your help. I place $10 on 5 place $12 on 6 and 8 place $15 on a
hard 4 and $7 in the field and lay the 4 for $120 vig is $3. I win $7 on every
roll but lose the lay bet if a soft 4 is rolled? Is there a way I don't lose
my lay bet?
Should I place all my bets out there but not the lay bet for the come out
roll? And then after the come out roll put the lay bet out there?
Any help please. Casey L.
I am confused, if your betting
method is winning for you, why are you seeking help?
This play and others similar to
it, have been around for ever. No way to win every time. Hedging a hedge is
what you are trying do. If in deed you are winning with this play, you should
be happy with your results.
Regarding you last question
about sitting out for the come out roll, the probability of a 7 rolling for your lay bet to
win is always 16.6% the probability of rolling a four is 8% and for the easy
four it is 6%. The odds are always the same before any roll.
No reason to leave out the come
