The most exciting thing in playing craps is choosing what bet you wish to make. In fact, the craps table is really like just a list of bets that you can make in the game. Even the payoffs are listed for some types of bets.

Let's move on to the types of bets then.

The Pass Bet � This is the most basic of all bets so you're not to worry about experiencing any difficulty in making this one. When the shooter rolls the dice for the first time, that's the only instance you can make a pass bet. When the dice comes up with 7 or 11, your pass bet wins. When it comes up with a 2, 3 or 12, you lose. When any other number comes up, it becomes the point. If the point comes out once more before a 7, you win!

The Come Bet � A Pass Bet made after the come out roll.

Hardaway Bet � When you bet on a hardaway 8, you're hoping that the dice would reveal two 4s on the next roll. Hardaway bets are notoriously hard to win so think hard on just how much money you wish to risk when making such wagers!

The Field Bet � This bet can be made at any given part of the game. There are a set of numbers that are listed in the Field Bet area, right? If you're making a field bet, you're hoping that the next roll would come up with any of the numbers listed in that area. Oh � and remember that the numbers 2 and 12 pay double!
