Casino games are always played, no doubt, with apparent enthusiasm. Like Craps, for example.
Craps is a game played with two dice on a table with a relatively high board and a layout.
There are small variations in the design of the layout, depending usually on the town you are in. However, these variations will not cause any problem as soon as the player becomes familiar with one type of layout.
The game, conducted by four Casino employees--- the Boxman, the Stickman (or Croupier), and two dealers--- positioned around the table.
The main responsibility of the Boxman is to supervise the game. However, the main duties of the Stickman and Dealers will become clear during the description of the game below.
To place bets at a Craps table (what type of bets can be placed will be indicated further), the player needs chips, which can be bought at the table (or in some places, at the cashier's cage).
To buy chips, at the table, the player places money in front of one of the dealers. The dealer gives the money to the Boxman who counts the amount and drops into the money box.
Then the dealer places an equivalent amount in chips in front of the player. However, the chips should not be left on the table, since they may be mistaken for bets.
They should be placed in the grooves provided on the border of the table.
The house establishes a minimum and a maximum bet for each table, and the corresponding amounts are usually prominently indicated.
The number of players at a Craps table is limited only by the space available.
In dice and outcomes, everybody knows what a die is, that it has six faces and that each face is marked with from one to six dots.
We identify the faces of the die by one of the numbers one, two,... six. For instance, four will identify the face marked by four dots.
Assume that the die is rolled (thrown) on the table. If after the roll, the upper face of the die (parallel with the surface of the table) is for example, three--- we say that the outcome is three, for that we have rolled (or thrown) three.
When we roll an honest die on the table, we have no reason to expect that the outcome will be, for instance, five instead of two. The chance of each one of the outcomes one, two,... six is the same.
If we throw two dice, 36 different outcomes are possible. We understand this easily if we assume (if you find this necessary) that one of the dice is white and the other is red.
At a Craps table, both dice have the same color. If, for example, three is rolled with the white die and five with the red one, we say that the outcome is (three, five) or that we rolled (or threw three, five).
Since with each two dice, we may roll any one of the faces one, two, three, four, five, six and since.
