WHAT IS CRAPLESS CRAPS?
By definition, Crapless Craps is a standard Craps variant where the totals of 2, 3, 11 and 12 count as point numbers. The game has slightly altered rules in order to avert the liability of losing from the come out roll. To play the game players roll two dice and hope to get a winning total.
HOUSE EDGE AND RULES
It doesn’t really help to know how to play standard Craps, because Crapless Craps has rules of its own. According to the rules of the variant, the first dice roll can produce an instant winner if a 7 is rolled, but not if a total of 11 is rolled for pass line betters. The 11 becomes the pass line point. Since the game is crapless, if the first roll produces a total of 2, 3 or 12, there is no loss on the pass line. Instead, these totals become the pass line point. Furthermore, in Crapless Craps players can’t make a don’t pass line bet and don’t come bet, because there is no such thing.
