This is the Microgaming variant, and like all craps, the game has Craps has 2 distinct phases – the Come-out phase and the Point phase.
In the Come-out phase, the aim is to roll a 7 or an 11, while betting on the Pass Line. If you roll a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 instead, a Point is established.
In the Point phase, the aim is to roll the same number as the Point, before you roll a 7. The 7 is such a key total, as the opposing faces of each die always add up to seven (1 is always opposite 6, 2 is opposite 5 etc etc).
In both phases of the game, you can make a variety of side bets.
If you roll a total of 7 or 11, you win even-money on a Pass Line bet.
If you roll 2, 3 or 12 the Pass Line bet is lost.
If you roll 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, whatever you roll becomes the Point. The Shooter then rolls the dice until the Point is rolled again (even money payout), or a 7 is rolled (Pass Line bet is lost).
You can place an Odds bet once the Shooter has made the Point.
The Odds bet is placed next to the Pass Line bet.
