Players at a Craps Game

If you are seeking thrills, noise and more fun than you might be able to stand, then craps is simply the casino game to gamble on.

Craps is a fast-paced gambling game with high-rollers, low-rollers, and everybody in the middle. If you’re a people-watcher this is one game that you’ll absolutely enjoy observing. There’s the whale, buying in with a huge bankroll and making loud announcements when he bets across the board, "Five Hundred and Twenty dollars across," you will hear the whale say. He’s the gambler to watch at this game and they know it. The whale will either win big-time or lose big and there’s no in between.

There’s the low-roller, most likely attempting to acquaint himself with the whales. He will tell the other competitors of books he’s read up on, on dice tossing and converge on the most accomplished player at the table, ready to talk and "share ideas and thoughts".

There’s the student of Frank Scoblete most recent craps workshop. Even though Frank is the best there is, his devotee has to do his homework. This guy will require 5 mins to set his dice, so apply patience.

My favorite people at the table are the true chaps from the old days. These elderly gents are usually patient, generally kind and will very likely always give tips from the "great old days."

When you take the plunge and choose to join the game, make sure you utilize good etiquette. Find a position on the rail and place your money down in front of you in the "come" spot. Never ever do this when the pair of dice are in motion or you will become known as the last character I wished to mention, the jerk.
