Craps San Diego

Craps A NEW TWIST ON AN OLD FAVORITE

 

Sycuan Craps is an exciting new game at Sycuan Casino in San Diego that uses cards to determine which number is "rolled". Adding excitement to the game, players participate in the fun by rolling the dice to determine the cards to be used for each roll. It's a California twist on the classic Vegas craps game.

HOW TO PLAY - COMMON BETS

PASS LINES

At the beginning of each session, the first two cards dealt is known as the "come out roll". A puck, printed with the word "off" is placed on the layout. At this time, all bets on the Pass Line win on a 7 or 11, and lose on 2, 3 and 12.

Pass Line bets will continue to win or lose on these numbers until any other number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10) is totaled on the two cards dealt. When the total of the two cards is any of these numbers it becomes the point and is marked with the puck, which will be placed in the "On" position.

The dealer will continue dealing two cards at a time until those cards total a point or a 7. If the two cards total the point, the player wins on the Pass Line and the next two cards will determine a new point. If however the two cards total a 7 before a point, the player loses his Pass Line bet and this ends the session. This is called totaling a "seven out".

COME BET

Once a point has been established, players may bet in the "Come". The Come can be thought of as a perpetual Pass Line, whereby bets win on a 7 and 11, and lose on a 2, 3 and 12. If the two cards dealt total any other number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10) that number becomes the point for these bets. The bets will be moved into the number that the two cards dealt total. They will win if that number is repeated, and lose if the two cards total a 7.

PLACE BET

The place bet on one of the numbers (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10) is a bet that the number (the total of the two cards dealt) will be dealt before a 7. While the puck is in the "On" position, these bets will win every time the numbers is totaled by the two cards dealt. They lose if the two cards dealt total a 7.

Bets on the 4, 5, 9, and 10 should be made in multiples of $5. Bets on the 6 and 8 should be made in multiples of $6.

THE PAYOFF SCHEDULES FOR PLACE BETS ARE:

NUMBER ODDS

- 4 or 10 - 9:5
- 5 or 9 - 7:5
- 6 or 8 - 7:6

PROPOSITION BETS

A "single roll" bet is the total of the two cards dealt.

HORN BETS

A horn bet wins on a 2, 3, 11 or 12. It wins or loses on a "single roll" (two dealt cards).

HARD WAYS

Hard ways are not a "single roll" bet. A hard way is a bet that the selected number will roll with two of the same number before it is rolled any other way or before a 7 is rolled. Hard 6 and 8 pay 9:1. Hard 4 and 10 pay 7:1.

ANY 7

Any 7 is a "single roll" bet that wins if the two cards total a 7. It pays 4:1.

BIG 6 AND BIG 8

The big 6 is a bet that the 6 will roll (the two cards dealt total) before a 7; the Big 8 is a beet that the 8 will roll before a 7. The payoff is even money.

FIELD BET

The field is a "single roll" bet. It wins 1:1 if 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11 is the total of the cards dealt. It wins 2 to 1 if 2 is the total of the 2 cards dealt and 3 to 1 if 12 is one of the 2 cards dealt.
