The background of Craps dates back to a dice game known as Hazard, which goes back to Bernard de Mandeville in New Orleans in Early 1800’s. Hazard is thought to be a by-product of Azzahr, meaning ‘the die’ a game enjoyed by Arabs.

The game evolved as it spread out from the Arab countries to Europe and then to the UK. By the early 1700s, cultivated established rules for Hazard had been established. France adopted the British version of Hazard and is believed to have been brought to the us by early French settlers. In the mid-Eighteenth century, when the British beat the French in British North America, the French colonists relocated to Louisiana. Dice were enjoyed on river boats, casinos and wharfs and a streamlined ‘US’ version of Craps was created. The game moved west and is a favored game that is participated in all over the U.S. and around the world.

The name ‘Craps’ is presumed to be a French pronunciation of the term crabs, which refers to two ‘1s’. There are two basic varieties of Craps that are enjoyed-street Craps and bank Craps. Street caps, accurately named since it’s played on the streets is where a hurler establishes a point and then attempts to make that point. The wagering is made either with or against the tosser and another person has to cover the bet in order for the game to continue.

In bank Craps, which is the common game, wagered on in casinos, the betting house funds the game. The participants play against the house-the casino covers all of the wagers of all of the players. Craps once was a quite well-liked game but in the past 20 years had split itself and other games, like poker and chemin de fer became even more well-loved. However, Craps is experiencing a surge in fame once again in web casinos and in brink and mortar betting houses.
