Roll of the Dice

Craps is a dice game in which players make wagers on the outcome of the roll of a pair of dice. Craps developed from a simplification of the early English game of ‘hazard’. Its origins are complex and may even date back to the Crusaders. iPhone Craps  is based on the casino game, first known as Crapaud (a French word meaning toad in reference to the original style of play by people crouched over a floor or sidewalk) owns its popularity to street craps. The game became very popular with soldiers during the Second World War, by using an army blanket as a shooting surface. This gave rise to presumed methods of dice control, of which the best was known as the ‘army blanket roll’. The street variant of this game used either a sidewalk curb or stair stoop.

The Gameplay

In iPhone craps, dice are rolled against a back stop on a large oval table.  Each round has two phases, ‘come out’ and ‘point’. To start a round, the shooter makes one or more ‘come out’ rolls. A come out roll of 2, 2 or 12 is called ‘craps’ or ‘crapping out’. Any player betting the Pass line (win or don’t win; also right or wrong line) loses. A come-out roll of 7 or 11 is a ‘natural’ and the Pass line wins. The other possible numbers are the point numbers 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10.  If the shooter in iPhone Craps rolls one of these numbers on the come out roll, this established the ‘point’ to ‘pass’ or ‘win’. The point number must be rolled again before a 7. During the second phase of the roll, if the shooter ‘hits’ the point value again – any value of the dice that sum to the point will do, the shooter doesn’t have to exactly repeat the value combination of the come out roll – before rolling a 7, the ‘pass’ line wins and a new round starts. If a 7 is thrown before repeating the ‘point’ number, the pass line loses.
