What is a Pass Line?
The pass line is the name given to the area on a pass line table where a pass line bet is placed in the casino game of craps. It typically takes up two sides of the outside perimeter of a craps table, and comes directly below the ‘don’t pass bar’.
Pass Line Explained
It might be said that the pass line is the most important area of a craps table in an onsite or online casino. That’s because it is the location on the table where one of the most critical bets in the game takes place – the pass line bet. In case you didn’t know, the pass line bet is a bet which is wagered on the point being repeated, and also which comes out before the come out roll. It’s a self service bet which means the player places the chips.
You will find the pass line is the same in terms of its location on the table in most casinos. The only discernible difference from casino to casino are the dimensions of the line, its colour and the style of its fonts.
Adjacent to the apron, the pass line is clearly marked, and is designed to be easily reachable by all players in the game. Sometimes the pass line is referred to as the stick line, as you will hear if the stickman assigned to your game shouts front line winner, as is occasionally done. The pass line bet is part of the casino custom when it comes to the game of craps, which clearly notifies players which bets the casino offers and which it doesn’t by spelling them out clearly on the table; in the form of the don’t pass line, for example, or in this case, the pass line.
