When the online craps game is activated the craps table layout appears on the screen. The different marked areas on the layout correspond to the different bets available to the online craps player. Normally the first step is to place a bet. This is done by clicking of the chip of the desired denomination and then clicking on the area designated for the desired bet. However in online craps there are certain bets that can be placed only after the first roll, which is known in craps parlance as the Come Out Roll. Therefore it is possible to start the game without placing any bets.
Clicking on the Roll button simulates the roll of the two dice using the Random Number Generator. In most online craps games the rolling action is animated. The Come Out Roll is very important. If a 7 or 11 is rolled in the Come Out Roll then the Pass Line bets pay out even money and the Don't Pass bets lapse. If a 2, 3 or 12 is rolled in the Come Out Roll then the Don't Pass bets pay out even money and the Pass Line bets lapse. If any other number is rolled in the Come Out Roll the online craps game gets interesting. The bets remain on the table since they are neither paid out nor do they lapse. The number that is rolled gets established as the point. This number is indicated in the monitor in a designated area for record and for the convenience of the players. Subsequent to the establishing of the point the Pass Line bet wins if the point is rolled again before a 7 is rolled and the Don't Pass bet wins if a 7 is rolled before the point is rolled.
Another common bet in online craps is the Field Bet. This bet pays out even money if a 3, 4, 9, 10 or 11 are called in the next roll of the dice. It pays out 2:1 if a 2 is called in the next roll of the dice. It pays out 3:1 if a 12 is called in the next roll of the dice. If any other number is called then the bet loses. Some of the simpler bets in online craps are Any Seven paying out 4:1 if the next roll is a 7; Any Craps paying out 7:1 if the next roll is a 2 or 3; Crap 2 paying out 30:1 if the next roll is a 2 and Proposition 11 paying out 15:1 if the next roll is an 11. There are some bets that could theoretically go on indefinitely without being resolved. For example Big 6 Bet wins only when a 6 is rolled before a 7 is rolled. This bet is resolved only when either a 6 or a 7 is rolled. Theoretically this may never happen but in practice this does happen at some point of time.
