iPad craps is played the same as in an online or land-based casino. Craps is very popular in almost all casinos. The game may appear complicated as it has the largest table in the casino and involves 3 or more dealers, but the rules are simple. A player will roll the dice and make a pass line wager. The other players may choose a bet, such as the pass line, field bet or one of the proposition bets. If the shooter plays a 7 or 11 the pass line bet wins, but if the shooter plays a 2, 3 or 12 they lose, including all those who had bet on the pass line.
For those who bet on the don’t pass line they will win and when playing in a land-based casino this is deemed unfriendly as you are placing a wager against the field. If another number is rolled besides 2,3,7,11 or 12 the player will have to play the number they had rolled before the 7, for example if a 6 is rolled another 6 would need to be rolled before the 7. Because the 7 has many winning combinations (4-3, 5-2 and 6-1) the odds would be against the player
