The Come - Don't Come Bets

If you really hate just standing there doing nothing waiting to find out if you win or lose on your pass line bet and odds bets - don't worry - at anytime during the game you can place yet another bet while the shooter is trying to make his point roll.

Such a bet is the Come bet or the Don't Come bet. You can place such a bet by placing chips on the area marked - COME - or - Don't Come Bar.

The Come and Don't Come bets are very similar to the pass line/don't pass bets - in fact, they are the same except that you can not place a come or don't come bet in the very first roll (the come out roll). The Come and don't come bets are simply an additional pass line bet or don't pass bet that you can make during a point roll. These craps bets are won or lost according to the exact same craps rules as the pass line bets and don't pass bets.

So if you place a Come bet you will instantly win if 7 or 11 is rolled. Whereas you instantly lose if 2, 3 or 12 is rolled. If none of the above numbers are rolled - a point is established and your Come bet will be moved to that point (number, digit). So it's possible to have many different points in one game of craps - the pass line point bet with the On/Off marker and the Come point with your come bet. The following rolls with the dices will now act as point rolls also for this point. If this point is rolled before a 7 is rolled - you win your come point bet. If a 7 is rolled before you make this additional point you lose your come point bet.

Just like when placing a pass line bet or a don't pass bet - you can also add odds bets to your come bet or don't come bet.

Perhaps you are starting to get confused - You have now learned about the pass line bet - the don't pass bet - the odds bets and here is have explained the Come and Don't Come bets.....and there are even more bets in craps. The good news is that you don't have to know about these special craps bets - you don't even have to know about the Come and Don't come bets - you can do fine with just placing pass line bets and taking the odds.

Perhaps it's time to brush up on the craps bets we have covered above?

For this purpose I have made a quick guide to craps for you - if you understood it all the first time you can read on and learn about the other craps bets.
