# Rules of Craps

In the game two dice are used. The outcome of every throw is a combination of fallen dice and a sum of the numbers from 2 to 12. The game consists of rounds. Before a first roll bets are made on win (Pass Line) or on loss (Don't Pass Line) of the player who is tossing dice. Other bets besides Come and Don't Come are also permitted. Then the first throw (called Come Out Roll) is made. After Come Out Roll the following combinations of dice are possible:

Craps (total is 2, 3, 12) - Pass Line loses, Don't Pass Line wins even money if 2 or 3 roll out and ties on 12.

Natural (total is 7 or 11) - Don't Pass Line loses, Pass Line wins even money.

Point (total is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 12) - in this case the rolled total is fixed and called the point. Bets Pass Line and Don't Pass Line are played in this way: the dice are being rolled until 7 or point falls out. If 7 comes before point, Pass Line loses, but Don't Pass Line wins 1:1. If point comes before 7, then, vice versa, Pass Line wins 1:1, but Don't Pass Line loses.

Once the Pass\Don't Pass Line has been completed, the game starts again from the Come Out Roll. Bets on Pass\Don't Pass Line are accepted only before the first round. However, there are similar bets called Come and Don't Come Line, which are allowed all the time except the Come Out Roll.
