When you are starting out and you are just learning how to play
Craps, there will be many things that you need to understand so
that you will be able to play a skilled game and be successful.
Most of all, you will be faced with learning the different types
of bets that are available to make. For example, Don’t come
bets, this type of bet is very well known but if you are in a
land based casino you wont be the most popular person at the table.
Don’t Come betting is coupled with another bet, called the
Come Bet. They are the complete opposite of each other, however.
New people may find this confusing at first, but it gets rather
easy once you try it out for yourself.
As stated above, Don’t Come Bets are the opposite of Come
Bets. When the come out roll is done, then you will be able to
place a Don’t Come bet in the specific place for in the
table layout. You win if the shooter either gets a 2 or 3. However,
if the dice land on a 7 or an 11, you lose. Sometimes, the bet
will be given back in a push because the dice land on a 12. The
reason that this is not the most popular bet in the casino is
because when you make this bet, just like when you make a Don’t
Pass Line Bet you are betting against the dealer, and most of
the other people at the table.
When none of the numbers above are rolled points come into play.
When the dice land on any of the following numbers 4, 6, 5, 9,
8, or 10, that number becomes what is called a point, then the
bet is placed in the bar at the top left corner of the box where
the don’t come point is suppose to be. After there is a
Don’t Come Point in place, the bet will start paying out
even money. You win a Don’t Come Point bet if the shooter
does not land on point before they roll another seven. With this
type of bet the odds are pretty good, however if you are one that
likes to go with the crowd this isn’t the bet for you. You
can also look into the Come Bet, which is the other side to this
bet. With that bet you win if the dice land on a 7 or 11 and lose
if they land on a 2,3, or 12. And when it comes to points, you
will win your bet if the shooter throws his/her point again before
they throw a seven. You might hear or see (if you are playing
online) that the Don’t Come Bet is known as betting against
the dealer, the reason for this is that he/she is always playing
to get the that 7, 11 or to get their point and with the bet that
you made you are hoping they don’t
