How a pass Line Bet Works
When it comes to the craps game, a pass line bet is among the most common bets you will see made. A pass line bet is one that is simply placed on the pass line. It is done on a come out roll, which is the first time some shooter rollers. If they happen to roll an 11 or a 7, then you win. But, if they roll a 12, 3, or 2 you lose. If any other number is rolled it becomes known as a point number. The roller must roll that number again prior to rolling a 7. If they do this successfully – you win even more money. If they roll a 7 before the point is rolled, then you lose.

The odds bet are a little different than other bets, as it is an addition to the pass line. This bet varies according to the point. If it is six or eight it pays 6 to 5, a point of five or nine it pays 3 to 2, a point of four or ten it pays 2 to 1. This is an important thing to memorize when learning how to play craps.
