If you are looking for excitement, noise and more fun than you can stand, then craps is the only game to play.
Craps is a fast-paced game 918kiss with high-rollers, low-rollers, and everyone in between. If you are a people-watcher this is one game that you will love to observe. There’s the high roller, buying in with a large bankroll and making loud announcements when he bets across the board, “$520 across,” you’ll hear him say. He’s the player to watch at this table and he knows it. They will either win big or lose big and there’s no in between.
There’s the low-roller, possibly trying to acquaint himself with the high-roller. He will inform the other players of books he’s read on dice setting and hang around the hottest shooter at the table, ready to talk and “pick each others brains”.
There’s the student of Frank Scoblete latest craps class. While Frank is the best there is, his student needs to do his homework. This guy will take five minutes to set his dice, so practice patience.
My favourite people at the table are the true gents from the old times. These elderly gentlemen are normally patient, mostly kind and will almost always offer tips from the “good ole days.”
There are many other personalities that you will find around a crowded Craps table. When you take the plunge and decide to join the game, make sure you use proper etiquette. Find a spot on the rail and put your money down in front of you in the “come” area. Never do this when the dice are in motion or you will become known as the last personality I wanted to mention, the jerk.
