Craps

Craps Basics: The Table
When you walk into a casino
you can usually spot the craps tables by the raucous crowds gathered around them. Just in case you happen in at a quiet time
just look for the long
usually green
tables with at least four casino workers standing around them. Here’s the rundown on what to expect.
The Table
The craps table is covered in felt that is printed with a diagram showing the spaces for the types of bets. There is a center section where Hardways and One Roll bets can be placed. The ends of the table each have sections for the Pass Line
Come
Place
Field
and other bets. The ends of the table are mirror images of each other.

Usually
the felt layout is green with white lettering
but sometimes casinos use other colors.
Craps HistoryDice games have been around for more than 2
000 years. Craps evolved from a dice game called hazard . There are a couple of ideas about how it came to be the craps we know today. One story is that Hazard started out as an Arab game referred to only by the Arabic word for die: azzahr . It migrated to France
where it was named hasard
and then to England
where it became hazard. The French eventually adopted the English spelling and brought it to Canada
to a French settlement called Acadia.

When the English took over Acadia (and renamed it Nova Scotia)
they banished the French
who moved south
eventually settling in New Orleans. They still played the game of Hazard but began refining the rules to simplify it
and in doing so made the game more mathematically fair. The name evolved
as well. Crabs (also spelled crabes) was the lowest roll in the game. The Louisiana French began to refer to the game by this name
ultimately calling it craps.

Craps spread by way of riverboats and eventually made its way west.
