Casinos for you
The late Bob Stupak devised crapless craps while owning the Las Vegas World casino. This version of the game can also be called “ruse craps” or “never ever craps”, based on Stupak’s aim to develop a variant where players were less likely to lose a bet on the “pass” line. This niche version can be found at participating casino sites online.
When playing crapless craps, the shooter (player) is merely trying to avoid rolling 7 and losing. Therefore, any other number that is rolled will be declared as the point. When wagering on the “pass”, bettors can only win if the shooter rolls the point again. However, it will be a win for the “don’t pass” bettors if the shooter rolls 7. What players need to bear in mind is that 7 is the most commonly rolled number in craps.
Come bets can still be accepted in crapless craps, though a second point will be created by the second roll of the shooter. In crapless craps, you can win if a 7 is rolled and any other number will be declared the come point. However, you can lose if the shooter rolls the point before 7.
Regarding house edge, crapless craps is statistically more difficult than classic craps. Comparatively, the house edge rises to 5.38% versus the lower 1.41% in the classic game. To clarify, the house edge for come bets will also be 5.38% in crapless craps.
However, free odds bets can serve as a rebalancing tool. While classic craps offers odds of up to 2/1 on free odds bets, crapless can provide up to 6/1. For example, 3 or 11 can payout 3/1 and 2 or 12 can payout 6/1 with a winning bet. By combining a pass with a free odds bet, the house edge can be reduced to 2.94%. Place bets will also be available to players.
