Craps is a well-loved and very exciting casino game which attracts a number of players both at online and offline casinos worldwide. Players usually play the game on a special table called a craps board, based on specified rules. The design of the craps die follows certain specific rules and parameters. The winning set of this game is decided on the result of the dice throw. This game gets popular with all age groups and is considered to be the most enjoyable gambling option.
In the standard version of this game, the players have a finite number of chips. The goal of the game is to become the first player to get all their chips to the losing end by making the right throws, which are designated as “craps” or “flop” dice rolls. These rolls are followed by the “turn”. When a player becomes the first one to eliminate all their chips from the table (allowing the other players to get theirs as well), they win the game.
Two distinct types of craps rules exist in the casinos; the two-die roll and the Yo-Yo rule. In the two-die roll, the outcome of each face is already pre-determined and there is no room for chance. Thus, in the two-die roll there is only a small range of outcomes, but the potential range is very great and may reach up to a million and a half. The Yo-Yo rule allows the players to place successive bets depending on the outcome of one face, disregarding previous bets made by the players.
The best known version of these rules of craps, known as the Cabbage rule is also quite similar to the Cabbage technique. In this version, the outcome of a throw can be predicted by rolling the dice. The Cabbage rule has become infamous among players because it permits the making of bets that exceed the maximum limits allowed by the rules of craps. In a game of craps with this rule, the highest possible wager wins. It is also worth noting that both of these rules have been used in different variations of craps over the years.
Another variation of these rules of craps that is still in use today is the “stickman” rule. A “stickman” is someone who participates in a craps game without actually having any money in his pocket. All he has is his bare hands. Although he cannot legally wager any real money, people participating in the games will happily accept sticks as wagers as they consider them to be very fair.
If you are unfamiliar with the different rules of craps, it will help to know that the last person standing after a round of betting has ended is the winner. The first person is the loser.

However, when playing craps, keep in mind that the odds of winning are always against you.
