Before how to run a dice, Craps table fans should know that the entertainment consists of several parts and has a huge number of bets, where, in addition to the main ones, it is allowed to make many additional ones, such as All Small (you need to guess five small numbers 2,3,4,5,6 in front of seven). Experts recommend that all beginners first try their hand at the free mode, which allows you to understand all the intricacies of the game without extra financial costs.
Here, the game requires a special large elongated table with rounded corners and high sides, which can simultaneously accommodate up to 24 people. For bets, a central field and basic fields are provided. Also, two cubes with 6 faces are used, on each of which there are dots denoting certain numbers.
