Casino Term: Craps

A casino game play with 2 six sided dice on a felt covered table with a wall of approximately 12 inches surrounding the outside of the table. The game requires at least one player, a "shooter" to bet against the house and throw the dice to start the game or "come out". On the come out roll any 2, 3 or 12, is craps and the shooter's bet is lost, a roll of 7 or 11 is a win and the shooter's bet is paid at 1:1. The shooter continues to roll until a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 is rolled, that number is then called the shooter's "point".  The shooter then continues to roll until his point is rolled or a 7 is rolled. When rolling for a point, the 7 is craps and it ends the game and the dice move to the next player, who is then the new shooter, starting with a come out roll.
