Don't Pass Line - Understanding Craps Bets

Craps odds bets can be placed on the pass line bet, the don't pass line bet, the come bet as well as the don't come bet.

Craps odds bets can be placed on the pass line bet, the don't pass line bet, the come bet as well as the don't come bet. Let’s explore the odds bets and look at the don’t pass line bet in particular.

The point of the craps odds bet is to backup the bet you already made and ensure a higher payout on the win. Your payout will depend on the amount being that is being wagered on.

If you bet on the place bets you are only wagering on 1 of the following numbers being rolled before the seven: 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10. Each number offers it's own special craps odds. The field bet is another sort of side bet that can be made in online craps at any time and pays the winner even money when any of the following numbers are thrown: 3, 4, 9, 10 or 11. On the numbers two and twelve the player wins double money. On numbers 5, 6, 7 or 8 the bet is lost.

11 is a point number instead of a natural. Rolling an 11 still pays "Yo" center-table bets, however the Pass line does not automatically win and the Don't Pass line doesn't automatically lose.

After you place the don’t pass line bet:

• If a 7 or 11 rolls on the come out roll, the don’t pass line bet loses.
• If the 2 or 3 rolls on the come out roll, the don’t pass line bet wins.
• If the 12 is rolled, then the don’t pass line net pushes and you get your money back.
• If the 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 rolls, then that number is set as the point.
• After the point was established, and the 7 rolls before the point is rolled, then the don’t pass line wins.

To place this online craps bet, you need to place your chips in the box marked "Don't Pass line" on the craps table. The rules of the online craps don't pass line bet are similar to the pass line bet. If the shooter rolls a three or twelve on the first roll, then you win. However, if a shooter rolls a seven or eleven on the first roll, then you lose.

The don’t pass line rules about rolling a 2 on the come out roll may change depending on the location of the casino where the craps game is being played. If the shooter makes a point, then he must roll a seven before making that point in order for you to win.

The online craps don’t pass line bet house advantage isn’t much smaller than the pass line bet, around 1.40%. Be aware that "Don't Bettors" aren’t the most popular players at the table and that they are thought to bring long periods of bad luck to the table.
