The rules about rolling a two on the come out roll may change depending on the location of the casino where the craps game is being played. In some places a two on the come out roll will win you even money for the don’t pass bet. However, in some of the smaller, and cheaper, casinos if the shooter rolls a two, it is standoff and you neither win nor lose any money for don’t pass bets.

The House advantage in the online craps don't pass line is not much smaller than the pass line bet, 1.40%. Although you may like this advantage, be aware that "Don't Bettors" are not the most popular players at the table. They are thought to being long periods of bad luck to the table. This is because most players bet on the shooter, so in effect, you are betting that everyone at the table will lose.
