Most table games played at casinos, there is an expectation that players follow certain unwritten rules around etiquette.
If you’re unfamiliar with these rules, there’s no need to worry. Everyone is there to have fun and the crew won’t hesitate to help you out.
DICE ARE OUT
When the stickman calls out “Dice are out”, this is your cue to get your hands out of the way, assuming you’re not the shooter.
Handle the dice with one hand only
When your turn comes to shoot, never use two hands - and keep the dice where the crew can see them.
Do your best to toss a valid throw
Toss the dice so they hit the far wall of the table and bounce off. This move ensures a random outcome and is considered a valid throw. Also, don’t toss the dice too high or too soft, and keep the arc lower than the tallest player at the table.
Preserve the decorum of the craps table
- Keep your hands to yourself, don’t dangle them over the table.
- Make sure your bets are placed before the shooter has the dice.
- Always wait until the shooter has made his point to cash out.
- When a shooter sevens out, take it in stride. A loss is eventual – no one shoots forever – and if you remain within your budget, it’s all part of the fun.
