The Online Craps Come Bet
There are two things you need to know to understand what is the craps come bet:
- It is placed after the point was established.
- It is the same as the pass line bet.
In online craps come bet, you can place your bet only after the player has made the point. After that, the bet is exactly like a pass line bet.
- If the result of the first throw after the come has been placed is a craps number (2, 3 or 12) then the you lose the bet.
- If a 7 or 11 on the first throw comes up, then the bet wins. If the first number that is thrown comes up 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10, then that number becomes the bettors, but not the shooter's, point, and then that number must be rolled again before the 7 in order to win.
When you wish to place an online craps come bet, place your chips on the come box at your section of the table, and then the dealer will know that it is your bet. Once the bettors point has been made, then the dealer will remove your chips from the come box and then place it in the appropriate slot for that number.
If you lose, then the dealer will remove all your chips from the come box. If you win then the dealer will put twice as many chips into the come box. Be aware that the dealer will assume that you are betting all the chips that you have in the come box, and so pay attention to remove all the chips that you do not want to bet from the come box.
The house edge for come bets in online craps is 1.41.
This places the come bet with the same rank as the pass line bet making it the most profitable bet in online craps.
