|Is there a cooler casino game out there than
First of all, you get to roll dice to win
cash. If you start winning people surround you and cheer. You can yell out cool stuff like
give me an eight! or poppa needs a new pair of shoes! And if
things really get going girls may even start blowing on your dice (no pun intended)!
However, to not look completely like a douche while doing
all this, you have to make sure youre using proper Craps etiquette.
Nothing will make you look more amateur than not knowing
some of the rules that need to be followed when playing the game.
Thats why were giving you some tips on proper
etiquette at the Craps table.
Know the Game Before Playing
This is especially true when playing offline. If youre a new player you probably
think you win at Craps by rolling non-stop sevens and avoiding the dreaded snake
eyes. But its a bit more complicated than that.
Craps is a game that can take forever between rounds if
players are making bets and everyone is trying to figure out whos going to be the
Shooter (the guy who throws the dice). Itll slow things even more if
youre asking simple questions in between rounds as well. If you simply play the
pass and dont pass lines the game will remain relatively
simple. However, if you plan on spreading your wealth around most of the table you need to
know the odds, payouts and general rules.
No Drinks on the Table
If your tables rolling and having a good time, nothing will ruin the mood more than
you knocking your rum and coke all over the felt and the chips. Almost every table has a
shelf underneath specifically for you to store your drink, use it so your role at the
table doesnt change from shooter to jackass.
Don't Lean or Sit Down at the Table
You may find some sit-down tables here and there, but Craps is supposed to a stand-up
game. Dont look like a senior citizen and pull up a chair. Stand up with everyone
Shooters Need to Hit the Back of the Table
When shooting the dice make sure they hit the back of the table at the other end. Dealers
will often call out hit the back wall please! Follow their instructions. Also
try not to hit any chips and dont overdo your throw. Nothing will be more
embarrassing than making the dealer get on all fours to find the dice.
Dont Handle the Dice with More Than One Hand
Its a simply a security thing. This keeps the shooter from illegally
swapping the dice.
Dont Yell Out Seven!
Yelling out seven on the come out roll is considered bad luck, dont do
it. Also, try not to call out or yell for numbers that would lose other players their
bets. Betting the Don't Pass Line is okay but keep in mind it will probably be a losing
number for most of the other players.
Tip the Dealer
This is customary in just about every casino game. To avoid dirty looks from the dealer
and others at your table, tip the guy who just helped you make a ton of money. Or you can
even make a bet for them by placing chips somewhere on the layout and announcing "for
the House. Just make sure you place a bet on something simple like the Pass Line.
