Come Out Roll
What is 'Come Out Roll'?
The Come Out Roll is the first and most important roll of the dice in craps
(two dice) because it decides the direction the game will take. If the shooter (the name given to the player that rolls the dice) rolls a 7 or 11, he, and those that bet for him, win. If the shooter
rolls a 2, 3, or 12, the players that bet against him win. If the shooter rolls any other number, the game moves into the point phase.
'Come Out Roll' Explained
As soon as the shooter craps out - rolls a 2, 3, or 12 - the dice are passed to the player on the left and they start the next game. To prevent controlled throwing, the shooter must throw the dice with one hand and so they hit the back wall. If they don't they will be asked to throw the dice again.A shooter must have a bet placed in either the area of the board called the pass line or area of the board called the don't pass line
to roll. Once he has made his bet, the other players place theirs. Chips placed in the pass line are bets in favour of the shooter and chips placed in the don't pass line are bets against. There is nothing to stop players in placing bets in both sections of the board. Both sections pay out at even odds
, meaning that the players double their money if their bet comes in.The dealer will signify that a game has moved into the point phase by turning a sign from off to on. At this point, the players can place bets with higher odds further up the table. The right side of the board, for example, lists the odds for different throws. If a player bets on the shooter throwing a double one, he stands to win at odds of 30-1.
