There’s nothing crappy about craps! All puns aside, Spirit Mountain Casino is excited to offer this fun dice game, in which the players make wagers on the outcome of the roll, series of rolls or pair of dice, on our casino gaming floor. Follow the loud cheers and big crowd around our craps tables the next time you’re in Grand Ronde.
Dice games have been around for more than 2,000 years. Craps in particular originated from a dice game known as Hazard. Traditionally, craps can be played two ways: players can bet against each other (street craps) or against the bank (table craps). Bank craps is played by multiple players who bet against the house. Players take turns rolling two dice (the shooter), while all players can bet on various options by placing chips in the appropriate sections of the board. When acting as the shooter, a player must bet on the “Pass” or “Don’t Pass” line during the round. The dice are rotated clockwise around the table to the next shooter.
Each round has two phases: “come out” and “point.” To start, the shooter makes one or more “come out” rolls, with a roll of 2, 3 or 12 called “craps” and anyone betting the Pass line loses. A “come out” roll of 7 or 11 is a “natural” and the Pass line wins. The other numbers are the point numbers: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10. If the dice land on these numbers, this establishes a “point” and must be rolled again until the shooter gets a seven.
Each casino might set different payout levels for various bets. Spirit Mountain Casino plays a number of different bets including the following: Pass, No Pass, Come, Don’t Come, Odds, Buy & Lay, Place, Hard Ways, High Horn, Big 6 & Big 8 and Hop bets. We’re also thrilled to announce that five-time-odds are back! Avoid the “Snake Eyes” and get ready to roll a “Natural” or “Seven Out” at Spirit Mountain. Dice, be nice, baby needs a new pair of shoes!
