Basic Craps Etiquette

  • A player can reject his right of being a shooter. He can pass the dice offered by the dealer to the next player to his left without offending anyone. However, at least one player must accept to be a shooter, so the game can continue.
  • Center bets are not placed by players. To place such bet, one must toss the chips and call out the intended bet. The stickman will place the chips the correct way.
  • Word seven is believed to bring bad luck and is absolutely prohibited after the come-out roll. Although it is not more than a prejudice, breaking this rule will most certainly offend other players.
  • Changing dice in the middle of a roll is considered bad luck.
  • It is accepted to tip the dealers. It is even expected from a player who wins. There is nothing illegal about that and it must be done confidentially. To tip the dealers one can simply place chips on the table, saying for the boys or dealers.
  • Late bets, viz. the bets made after the stickman have collected the dice for the next roll are allowed by the game rules, but considered rude by other players.
  • Dealers are people and can make an error. It is absolutely normal to point a dealer on the error he made. Casino policy says the client is always right and such situations are more commonly resolved to the favor of the player.

Casino Security Rules

  • When throwing the dice, the shooter must hold them with one hand and can not lower them behind the level of the edge of the table. Dice must hit the opposite wall of the table when thrown and must not fly higher than the level of the dealers eyes.
  • The dice must not land in the bank or on any other stacks of money managed by dealers.
  • When both or either of the dice lands on chips belonging to players, the number that would be on top if the object was removed is the number used to make the call.
  • If one of the dice hits a dealer, a player or any other person and then lands back onto the table, the roll counts if the person did not interfere with the die.
  • Except in casinos that have no setting rules, the shooter can set the dice to a particular configuration before throwing. However, this must be done quickly to not delay the game.
  • Dealers can not be touched. Casinos prohibit any physical contact between dealers and players. To pass chips to a dealer, they must be placed on the table, and the desired operation must be announced.
