Be cunning, play smart, and master craps the ideal way!

Games that use dice and the dice themselves date back to the Crusades, but modern craps is just about 100 years old. Current craps evolved from the old Anglo game called Hazard. No one absolutely knows the ancestry of the game, but Hazard is said to have been invented by the Englishman, Sir William of Tyre, in the 12th century. It is theorized that Sir William’s paladins played Hazard through a siege on the fortress Hazarth in 1125 AD. The name Hazard was gotten from the citadel’s name.

Early French colonizers imported the game Hazard to Acadia. In the 1700s, when driven away by the British, the French headed down south and discovered refuge in southern Louisiana where they after a while became known as Cajuns. When they left Acadia, they took their favorite game, Hazard, with them. The Cajuns modernized the game and made it more mathematically fair. It is believed that the Cajuns adjusted the title to craps, which is gotten from the term for the losing throw of snake-eyes in the game of Hazard, recognized as "crabs."

From Louisiana, the game extended to the Mississippi riverboats and all over the country. A good many think the dice maker John H. Winn as the founder of modern craps. In the early 1900s, Winn created the current craps setup. He appended the Don’t Pass line so gamblers could bet on the dice to not win. At another time, he established the spaces for Place wagers and added the Big 6, Big 8, and Hardways.
