Craps - Line Bets
The only bets that can be placed when the puck is OFF are the Pass Line and Don’t Pass Line bets. They can only be played on the Come Out roll (the name given to any roll when the puck is OFF) and are placed on the correctly marked areas of the craps table.
These bets would not both be placed at the same time by a craps player as they play against each other. If a 7 or 11 are rolled on the Come Out roll then the Pass Line bet wins and the Don’t Pass bet immediately loses. If the shooter rolls a 2 or 3 on the Come Out roll, the Pass Line bet loses and the Don’t Pass bet wins. A roll of a 12 would conclude the Pass Line bet as losing but would award the Don’t Pass bet a draw which means the player receives his chip back.
If any other number is rolled, then a point is established. The puck moves above that number to mark the point and is switched to ON. The outcome is now determined by two numbers only; the point number and the number 7. Any other numbers rolled will not affect these two bets.
Once the puck is ON, the Pass Line bet will win if the point number is rolled, and lose if a seven is rolled; with the exact opposite being true for the Don’t Pass bet. Once the marked point is rolled, all Pass Line and Don’t Pass bets will be decided and the puck will return to its starting position, switched to OFF. The betting round is complete but any bets not affected by the puck will remain on the craps table.
