Have you ever walked through a casino and heard sudden cheering and applause? We guarantee nine times out of 10 it’s around a craps table.
This exciting table game involves luck, chance and an enthusiastic group of players hanging on every roll of the dice. If you’re ready to place your bets, we’ve rounded up the hottest craps tables you can find in downtown Las Vegas.
First of All, What is Craps?
If you’ve never played this thrilling table game, you might be wondering what the game of craps is all about. Craps is a dice game in which each player places a bet on the outcome of the roll. Each player gets a chance to shoot and every bet is in play no matter who is shooting. This is partially why the game is so exciting and the perfect gambling option for groups.
It also helps to know that since craps is a game of pure chance, even newbies can win. As an added bonus, it has a low house advantage.
