What is a Pass bet?
The Pass bet, also known as the pass line bet, is a bet in a game of craps that the player places himself on the initial come out roll. The player wins the bet at 2 to 1, if the shooter rolls an 11 or 7. The opposite of a Passbet is a don’t pass bet, which bets on the shooter to roll a 2, 3, or 12. The pass bet section is labelled on the outside of the board as pass line and to make the bet the players just place their chips inside the pass line section when the stickman opens the betting.
Pass bet Explained
The stickman will open the betting by calling the new shooter to the table. Though the pass bet and they don’t bet are the only two bets a player can make on the initial come out roll, both bets stay live into the next phase.
For example, if the shooter rolls a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, he establishes a point and the game moves into the next phase. If he rolls that point again, say he established as the point as 9 and he rolls a 9, then the pass bet wins. In the second phase, a pass bet loses only when the shooter rolls a 7 before the point number.
According to Craps Pit.org, there are six ways to roll a 7, five ways to roll a 6 or 8, four ways to roll a 5 or 9, and three ways to roll a 4 or 10.
After the come out roll, the table opens up to other bets. The players can’t make pass bets until the beginning of the next round, but they can make higher odd bets, such as betting on dice totals.
