Online gambling takes many forms and although sports gambling is probably the most popular, online casinos are providing a great range of alternative gambling opportunities some of which are well known such as roulette or blackjack whilst others such as craps are less so. Online craps gambling is not that popular amongst Irish casino players probably because it has not historically appeared in the clubs whereas in America it is found in all casinos and if you are unaware of the rules and simply stand and watch craps being played you will probably have no idea what is going on. Despite this online craps gambling is well worth looking into as it can provide a great deal of excitement and although some of the bets can seem complicated there are simple bets that can be used to get you started. The excitement in online craps gambling comes from the fact that it often takes several throws of the dice to determine who the winners are and in fact of the 11 possible results of the two dice thrown only five will result in an immediate result. When gambling on craps the two easiest bets are the pass line bet and the don’t pass line bet which are nearly but not quite opposite. The pass line bet will win immediately if a seven or eleven is thrown and loses immediately if a two, three or twelve are thrown whereas the don’t pass line bet has the opposite result except that in the case of twelve the bet is returned instead of winning. In all other cases when gambling on craps further throws are needed to determine the winners. The number thrown on the first throw which is not 2,3,7,11 or 12 is called the point and play continues until either the point number or a seven are thrown. Craps gambling is not as difficult as it may at first appear and is well worth trying at you chosen online casino.
