Rules Craps Betting: 3-Way Craps, Over, Under 7 Bets
The 3-Way Craps Bet:
The 3-Way Craps bet is like the Any Craps bet in that it's a one-roll bet that wins if a 2, 3, or 12 appears, and loses if any
other number appears. In reality, it's actually three separate one-roll bets disguised as one: a bet on the 2, a bet on the 3,
and a bet on the 12. Therefore, when you play craps, the amount of your 3-Way Craps bet should be divisible by three. For
example, if you make a $6 3-Way Craps bet, the dealer puts $2 on the 2, $2 on the 3, and $2 on the 12. The minimum bet
amount for each of the three numbers (i.e., 2, 3, and 12) is the value of the lowest-denomination chip in play at the table,
which is usually $1. So, since your bet amount should be divisible by three, the smallest 3-Way Craps bet you can make is
The 3-Way Craps bet is controlled by the stickman, so keep your hands off and don't try to touch the chips in this area. The
2, 3, and 12 boxes are clearly marked in the proposition area. When you have the stickman's attention, gently toss your
chips to an open area near the center of the table layout and say, "I want a Three-way Craps." Remember, aim for an
empty spot on the craps table so your chips don't mess up other chips on the table.
If a 2 shows, the payoff is 30:1; and your 3 and 12 lose. If a 12 shows, the payoff is 30:1; and your 2 and 3 lose. If a 3
shows, the payoff is 15:1; and your 2 and 12 lose. Note that there are two ways to make a 3 (i.e., 1-2 and 2-1) and only
one make to make a 2 (i.e., 1-1) or 12 (i.e., 6-6). Therefore, the payoff for the 3 is half the payoff for the 2 or 12.
The Over 7 and Under 7 Bets:
When playing casino craps, the Over 7 and Under 7 craps bets are uncommon one-roll bets that you probably won't see
unless you play in a lot of different casinos. The Over 7 bet wins if an 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12 shows on the next roll; and loses if
any other number shows, including 7. The Under 7 bet wins if a 6, 5, 4, 3, or 2 shows on the next roll; and loses if any other
number shows, including 7. The payoff for both bets is 1:1, or even money.
