5 Fun Facts about Craps -

Craps is one of the world’s most common dice game that’s found in virtually every casino, whether it is land based or online. The blockbuster movie Casino, with the hunky Robert De Niro and the gorgeous Sharon Stone, provides a good idea of what the game of craps is all about. 

It is a game of pure chance that’s quite popular with players, as it has a low house advantage. No wonder why beginners like this game too! Who knows, this game might soon to make its entry at Spin and Win Casino to delight all craps enthusiasts!

Back to Medieval Times

Did you know that the name “craps” comes from the French word “crapaud”? This means toad. It is most probably a reference to the way players used to squat to shoot dices on the streets when this game had not yet made its way on tables. Try picturing yourself and everyone else around you sat as toads to play craps! That would be a very funny sight!

Originally called Hazard, craps origins can be traced back to the Crusades. Throughout history this game has continued to evolve and thanks to British and French immigrants who brought craps with them, this game eventually made its way to America.

Four People to Manage the Tables

The tables on which the game is played is unique as they need more dealers to handle them. This is the main reason why fewer craps tables are available at casinos compared to other table games, even if they are usually the centre of activity in these casinos.

Normally, there are 4 casino personnels found around a craps table. The box person supervises the chips being passed around and note down the outcome of each roll, while two dealers are responsible for placing bets. The last one is the stickman, whose job consists of giving the dice to players and paying attention to the centre of the table where the proposition bets are placed.

Longest Rolling of the Dice

You will not believe it, but a grandmother actually rolled a pair of dice not less than 154 times consecutively at a craps table! How about that? That day, a huge crowd had gathered around her to watch this miracle. If you imagine, going on such a winning streak has an odd of over a trillion!  

Gaining the Favours of the Gambling Gods

Whether you believe in superstitions or not? It is good to know that leaving a penny under the table or asking a lady to blow on the dice before a roll worked for a few lucky winners.

Record Winning

After a lucky streak of shooting dice, Archie Karas walked away with an incredible $40 million when he played a fortune of $17 million over a period of several months in the 90s. The most daring bet is most probably when Williams Lee Bergstrom wagered an eye-popping $777,000 on the “don’t pass” line. And guess what, he won!
