Hi guys, I've never actually played craps, but we're heading to Vegas later this year and I quite fancy giving it a go. I've been reading the rules on various sites (Wizard of Odds, etc) and I think I have gained a basic grasp of the game, but I a few queries or points that I wish to clarify: 1. You can only place a pass / don't pass bet when the shooter is doing the Come Out roll, i.e. the first roll of the round. This is indicated by the chip showing "Off" on the table. Anyone, including the shooter, can bet on the Come Out part of the round. If I bet pass and it comes in 7 or 11 I win and if it comes in 2, 3 or 12 I lose. Opposite if I bet don't pass. Is this all correct so far? 2. If the Come Out roll is 4,5,6,8,9 or 10 then nobody wins or loses on the pass / don't pass bets and the number rolled become the Point. This I get. What happens to the pass / don't pass bets? Do they get refunded or do they carry on until the round is finished, i.e. if the point is rolled again the pass wins and don't pass loses or if a 7 is rolled then the pass loses and don't pass wins? 3. If the shooter rolls a point, then it moves on to the Point part of the round. Do players then need to bet on the Come / Don't Come to choose whether the shooter will roll the point or roll a 7? Or can players who have already got a bet on Pass / Don't Pass leave their original bet live and not bother betting on Come / Don't Come? 4. Can I elect to gamble but avoid being the shooter or would that be classed as bad etiquette? 5. Do I place my chips directly onto the table for whatever I'm gambling on, or do I need to tell the dealers what I'm betting on and/or get them to place my bets for me? 6. As a newbie, am I right in assuming it looks better to bet on Pass and Come as opposed to Don't Pass and Don't Come as betting against the Shooter could make me look like a bit of an arsehole? 7. Once the Point has been established, does the Shooter keep rolling until he rolls the point or a 7? If he hits the Point can he elect to start a new round again or is it mandatory that the die is passed on to the next player clockwise? 8. What does the term "press" mean? Thanks in advance for taking the time to consider my rookie queries.
