To begin a game, the player makes a passline bet. The bet is played before the dice are rolled. If you roll a 7, you’ve won. If you roll a 2, 3 or 12, you lose. Any other number you roll becomes what known as the point number. If you roll a point number, you must roll that number again before rolling a 7 or an 11 to win. If you roll 7 again before rolling the point number, you lose.
Players can make additional bets in addition to the first bet, a move that is known as the odds bet. This means that the casino loses the usual house edge and the game begins to be played on real odds, versus an edge one way or another.
