Crapless craps is a variant of craps that makes all numbers except the 7 an established point after the come out roll. Therefore, if the shooter throws a 7 on the come out roll, the bet wins, if any other number is rolled, then a point is established. It is one of the earliest variants of the craps game and it remains one of the most popular variants of the game. 

Rules of Crapless Craps

Although this variant has similar rules to the original, it has its own rules, which make it unique. Here are the rules of crapless craps:

  • The first roll is known as the come out roll and if the shooter rolls a 7 on this roll, they win. 
  • Any other number that is rolled on the come out bet establishes a point. 
  • If the point number is rolled on the subsequent rolls before a 7 is rolled, then the pass bets win.
  • If a 7 is rolled before the point number is rolled a second time then the pass bets lose. 
  • Pass bets are paid even money when they win.
  • If the point number or a 7 has not been rolled then the shooter keeps rolling until the point number or a 7 appears. 

The house edge of pass bets in crapless craps is significantly high at 5.38% in contrast to the 1.41% in normal craps.

One advantage of crapless bets is that players cannot lose on the come out roll. That is why it is quite attractive to players, especially newbies. Therefore, players are sure of at least two or three rolls after the come out roll, which provides an interesting opportunity for players to place bets. Bets like odds, lay, proposition, buy, place, and Mugsy's corner are all available in crapless craps.
