Casino war is most definitely the simplest of all casino games. Yer dealt one card and the dealer gets one card and the highest card wins. The game is simple, but it does not mean the game is any less fun or exciting. A few rules of the game…
There are two betting areas: one fer winning and one fer ties. Once ye place a wager in one of these areas, the game begins. Yer dealt one card as is the dealer. The card’s values are then compared and the highest card value wins. (Cards are valued just like in poker with all cards having their normal value and an ace being the highest card.) If yer dealt the higher card, then ye win the amount of yer bet placed in the winning betting area. If ye placed a bet in the tie betting area, and it’s not a tie, ye lose yer bet. In the event that ye and the dealer tie, and if ye placed a bet on the tie betting area, ye’d get paid 10 to 1 odds! If it’s a tie and ye placed a bet in the winning betting area, ye now have two options: To either surrender or go to war. The Surrender option means that ye give up half of yer bet and the hand is over. The War option means that ye double yer bet. Yer dealt another card as is the dealer. The card’s values are then compared and the highest card value wins. visitez le site
How to Play Craps
Craps is fast, fun and extremely exciting – ye will often hear loud clapping and yelling at the tables as these games draw a big crowd at the land-based casinos. It’s easy to learn, and the captain will show ye a few steps that’ll have ye playing craps like an expert in no time.
Four casino employees known as the “crew” usually run a craps table. This craps crew consists of two dealers who stand on the inside of the table. Each is responsible fer changing cash into chips and collecting and paying off bets on their half of the table. In between the dealers sits the ‘Boxman’. He overseas all the actions, settles any disputes and supervises the other three employees. He also examines the dice that go off the table to make sure they were not switched or compromised by cheaters. The ‘Stickman’ stands directly across from the Boxman on the other side of the table and handles the dice with a long curved stick, pushing them to the player that’s about to roll, or retrieving them after they’ve been rolled. The Stickman also announces what numbers were rolled and takes the bets in the center of the table.
A session of craps begins when the Stickman offers six dice to one of the players. The player selects two of them and becomes the Shooter or roller. This is the player that will be rolling and creating the numbers that all the players at the table will be betting on. The Shooter switches to the player directly clockwise from the previous shooter and continues around the table in that manner after each players turn as the shooter is finished. Prior to the dice being rolled, the Shooter is required to make a line bet on either the Pass Line or the Don’t Pass Bar (see illustration above). The other players will also be placing their bets on the table at the same time.
Captains Tip: Always Bet the pass line. If ye are a beginner then start out by only betting the minimum amount allowed. If ye are winning then try to increase yer bet by one chip each time ye have a winner. Try to go back to the table minimum after a loss. Do this until ye feel entirely comfortable with the game.
The first roll in a craps session is known as the Come Out Roll. During the Come Out Roll there are a few ways that players can win or lose. If they bet on the Pass Line then a player wins if a 7 or 11 is rolled. During the Come Out Roll the total number of the two dice that the Shooter rolled becomes the Point so long as that total number does not add up to 2,3,7,11 or 12. The Dealers then place a puck atop that Point number on the table with the “ON” side of the puck facing up. This reminds players where the Point is. Usually every time the Shooter rolls and gets the Point, players will win or lose. visitez le site
Captains Tip: Always Take full odds on the Pass Line, Don’t Pass Bar or Come bets. This is the best bet in the entire casino and is exactly a 50/50 proposition. Take advantage of this opportunity and maximize yer full bet. Most casinos offer double odds bets. In this case if ye had a $4 minimum wager then yer odds bet could be an additional $8. Ye would then have a total of $12 on this bet and will reap the benefits greatly.
Craps Rules On The Come Out Roll. No matter what bets are placed on the craps table, fer the Come Out Roll, the rules never ever change.
If the Come Out Roll is a 7 or 11 (also know as a Natural), the Pass Line wins and the Don’t Pass Bar loses.
If the Come Out Roll is a 2, 3 or 12 (also known as Craps), the Pass Line loses and the Don’t Pass Bar wins or ties. Usually the Don’t Pass Bet will be a tie when the Come Out Roll is 12.
If the Come Out Roll is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, then that number becomes the Shooter’s Point. The Shooter will keep rolling until the Shooter A.) rolls the point or B.) rolls a 7. If the point is rolled first, Pass Line bettors win and Don’t Pass bettors lose. If the 7 is rolled first, then the Pass Loses and the Don’t Pass wins. visitez le site
A couple rules to bear in mind…
7 can only be a winner on the Come Out Roll fer Pass Line Bettors. 7 is always a loser fer Pass Line Bettors on any other roll. The opposite is the case fer Don’t Pass Bettors.
The numbers 2, 3, 11 and 12 have no consequence fer Pass or Don’t Pass Bets after the Come Out Roll has been completed.
