The beginning of a game of craps
Placing the bets
The game starts as soon as the player or the dealer has placed the chips on the boxes corresponding to the bets. The gamblers are able to get to know the authorised stakes (maximum and minimum). These are written inside the sides of the table, where each croupier is standing.
When the first throw allows the player to get one of the following combinations: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, the total is called “the point”.
This is a special case, as the bets placed on the “pass line” are neither lost nor won. You need to wait until the next throw has been made to know the result of the bets.
