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

Dice and dice games date back to the Crusades, but current craps is approximately 100 years old. Current craps come about from the ancient Anglo game referred to as Hazard. Nobody absolutely knows the ancestry of the game, although Hazard is believed to have been invented by the Englishman, Sir William of Tyre, around the 12th century. It is supposed that Sir William’s knights wagered on Hazard during a blockade on the fortification Hazarth in 1125 AD. The title Hazard was gotten from the citadel’s name.

Early French colonists brought the game Hazard to Canada. In the 1700s, when banished by the English, the French headed down south and located refuge in the south of Louisiana where they after a while became Cajuns. When they fled Acadia, they took their best-loved game, Hazard, along. The Cajuns simplified the game and made it mathematically fair. It’s believed that the Cajuns changed the title to craps, which is acquired from the term for the losing toss of 2 in the game of Hazard, referred to as "crabs."

From Louisiana, the game extended to the Mississippi river boats and throughout the nation. Many think the dice builder John H. Winn as the creator of modern craps. In 1907, Winn developed the modern craps setup. He added the Do not Pass line so players can wager on the dice to lose. Afterwords, he developed the spots for Place bets and put in place the Big 6, Big 8, and Hardways.
