When the dice are “hot”, Craps is the fastest-moving game at the casino. It is a dice game played against the bank. The casino does not participate in this game, and neither should you. When the dice are hot, Craps is the loudest, fastest-moving game at the casino. When the dice are cold, the table becomes aatters, the dice flying, clanking, and tinkle.
How to play Craps
The Shooter makes a minimum bet on the Pass Line or the Don’t Pass Line. The Stickman presents 5 dice to the Shooter, who proceeds to roll. The table crewman then pushes the dice to the shooter who rolls. When the dice impact the table, if the result is a 7 or 11, the Shooter wins. If the results are a 2 3 or 12 the Shooter loses. After the Shooter establishes a point, betting on the Don’t Pass Line becomes a proposition bet. Any time the dice are rolled, you win if the results are 2 3 and 12. You lose if the results are 7 or 11.
The table crewman supervises the Action. The Stickman tends to the dice. The Stickman pushes the dice to the shooter who shoots. The dice fall, hit the basement floor, bounce and fall, through a closed door, and come to rest in atimer. The Stickman then pushes the dice to the shooter again, and this time, the shooter shoot’em.
Now you have the mechanics of a shootout. The shooter is shooting at the target, but you can defend your home turf. Before you start, be sure to arm yourself with knowledge of the dice-shooting shooter. What are the do’s and don’t’s of the shootout shooter? Does the shooter always win? Can the shooter lose? And, if you were the shooter, what are the consequences of losing?
Next, you should be aware of all the times that bullets have been fired at the shooter. You must know the sequence and positions of the treacherous slugs. Once you are armed with this knowledge, your chances of being hit by a stray bullet are greatly reduced.
Recently, at the range, a newcomer whom we will call “fred” teamed up with a guy we will call “don”, and for the first time at the range, they worked as a team.

Then don’s group hit the casino and became known on the casino floor as the “Sevening Eagles”. athe game was getting hot, and Fred decided to head back to the range. don, feeling it was time to go, picked him up in his arms, and they started running like little Indians. From the casino they headed home.
don sat in relatively calm for most of the trip home, but as he headed back to the casino, he begin staggering and falling. He needed some rest so he could calm down. upon getting home, he decided to check the online sports pages to see what was happening in the NFL. He wanted to bet on a certain game, but first he needed to know the status of the game. He wanted to bet on the “favorite” team, but it didn’t work out that way. He spent a little time looking for the right betting line, but didn’t like what he found. Because the spread had moved the Jets favored to win the game, but the final score showed Indianapolis the favored team. When asked what he thought happened, Fred refused to answer. He then said, “I’m not a total idiot, I know that Indy won the game, but I couldn’t risk it.” Then, he paused and analyzed his play. “I’m a little embarrassed that this is the second week in a row,” he said. “But, I guess I am a little Meadean.”
