Craps Hero

When I was in Vegas last year I found myself mixed up with a group who wanted to go play craps at Casino Royale. I was more exhausted than I’d ever been in my life—no sleep, too much drink, and I’d burned off six gigawatts of nervous energy from the flight and the delight of meeting so many people. I was in no shape to play craps…even if I knew how to play. Which I didn’t.

And still don’t. But there’s a site with the somewhat unfortunate name of Craps Hero (they probably get some interesting Google hits) that explains how to play this fun but intimidating game. I admit to feeling a bit envious as I read accounts of bloggers crowding around a craps table, whooping and hollering and having a sick old time enjoying a game I know zilch about.

Craps Hero explains the rules of the game and provides a quick overview of the odds and payouts involved, along with some pointers on craps etiquette and protocol. It won’t do to make a fool of yourself at the table, something I’d be afraid of doing. The information provided isn’t comprehensive—there’s a note on the “How to Play Craps” page that additional tutorials will be added at a later date. But it does give the novice player enough info to get you started.

It also lists the casinos in Vegas that offer the best craps odds—and Casino Royale is right at the top. So there’s another bit of information worth filing away—when you’re playing craps, hang out with people in the know. They’l1 steer you in the right direction.
