All Slots Presents Online Craps NZ
It’s difficult to say just how long people have been using dice to gamble. Archeologists have discovered dice carved from bone in many a mysterious midden. One thing’s for chance – nothing represents the basic enjoyment that games of chance represent as “rolling the dice”. Now we don’t know exactly what rules people followed when they rolled the bones back in the mists of pre-history, but we can connect with that ancestral spirit of taking chances to win by playing the classic game of craps in its most convenient form – in our online craps casino! Here at All Slots you can enjoy this casino classic in all its variety and complexity in total comfort and convenience – this craps casino is also mobile, meaning you can play on the device of your choice at the place and time of your choosing, whether it’s from the comfort of your own home or in some other location you may prefer.
In addition to convenience, we guarantee quality. Just as with our other casino games – and we have all the casino games, including classic table games like blackjack, baccarat and roulette in digital and live dealer versions, not to mention a stellar array of online pokies – our craps games are designed by the best developers in the world, Microgaming.
Craps online practice and casino rewards
The game of craps is all about betting on the outcome of the roll of a pair of six-sided dice. Online craps can be a stunningly rendered digital simulation of this phenomenon or it can be a live dealer situation where the dice that roll are as real as the nose on your face. In both cases, every dice roll can have a different result, and each combination means something different. As a matter of fact there are 36 different winning combinations, but they don’t all have the same odds. That’s why it pays to study the game a little and get some craps online practice. Don’t worry, at All Slots we make it easy for you – you can play the game in demo mode and get all the practice you want until you’re ready to roll the dice for chances to win real money, if you’re so inclined. For players who do choose to play for real winning possibilities, our Welcome Bonus is a nice way of getting the hang of things. We will match your initial deposit 100% by up to $500 – and do it again twice in your first week, for a maximum total of $1500 matched against your spend. After that, we have new promotions and special bonuses for members all the time.
Getting started with online casino craps
Online casino craps is a never-ending source of fun and entertainment that is easy to learn but always delivers surprises. Whereas the traditional table game of craps involves up to 8 players at a table at a time, online casino craps pits the players against the essence of the game itself. Here it’s all about how the dice roll and how they fall on the table.
The first roll can have three possible outcomes on which the player can bet. These are a natural number, a craps number and a point number. Remember these terms, they’ll keep coming up! Here’s what they mean:
- A natural number is a 7 or 11. If you put a bet on the pass line, you’ve won.
- A craps number is a 2, 3 or 12. If you bet on the “don’t pass line”, you’ve won.
- A point number is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10. If one of these numbers is rolled, it become the point number. If, for example, it’s a 6, then you carry on rolling until the dice land on 6 again or they land on 7.
Ordinarily craps has a “boxman” to supervise the game and deal with the cash and a “stickman” to handle the dice and call out results. Online casino craps dispenses with these characters – it’s all done by computer.
The language of a craps game online
Craps is famous for its jargon, which can be quite a mouthful for beginners to swallow. However, with some basic knowledge and application – plus maybe some time spent practicing in free-play (demo) mode – you will soon know enough to enjoy this multifaceted game of chance. Some of the expressions you’re bound to run across include betting terms like Aces, also known as Snake Eyes – a player calls this to bet that the next roll will be 2. Any Craps is a bet on 2, 3 or 12, while Big Red is a bet on 7. A Pass Line Bet is wager on a 7 or 11. A Come Bet means you’re betting the dice will yield a point number. Things get more complex with a Place Bet – here you’re banking on the outcome being a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 being rolled before a 7. With a Big Six Bet, you want a 6 to turn up before a 7, while a Big Eight Bet is a wager on a 8 being rolled before the 7.
It takes a bit of dedication to memorise these terms, but with a bit of experience, they’ll soon become familiar, as well as other bets like Box Numbers, Come Bets, Don’t Pass Bets, Front Line Bets, Field Bets, Garden Bets and Hop Bets.
