Be brilliant, play smart, and pickup craps the correct way!

Dice and dice games date all the way back to the Crusades, but current craps is approximately one hundred years old. Modern craps developed from the 12th Century Anglo game called Hazard. No one absolutely knows the ancestry of the game, however Hazard is believed to have been created by the Englishman, Sir William of Tyre, in the twelfth century. It’s theorized that Sir William’s soldiers wagered on Hazard through a siege on the fortress Hazarth in 1125 AD. The name Hazard was acquired from the castle’s name.

Early French colonizers brought the game Hazard to Nova Scotia. In the 18th century, when banished by the English, the French moved south and discovered refuge in southern Louisiana where they after a while became known as Cajuns. When they were driven out of Acadia, they took their favorite game, Hazard, along. The Cajuns modernized the game and made it more mathematically fair. It is believed that the Cajuns adjusted the title to craps, which is acquired from the name of the bad luck throw of 2 in the game of Hazard, known as "crabs."

From Louisiana, the game moved to the Mississippi river boats and across the country. A few think the dice maker John H. Winn as the father of current craps. In the early 1900s, Winn developed the current craps setup. He put in place the Don’t Pass line so players could wager on the dice to not win. Afterwords, he designed the boxes for Place wagers and added the Big 6, Big 8, and Hardways.
