It’s difficult to argue against a game of craps. This ancient pastime, which may go back as far as the Crusades, has been modernised and improved by Mr Green so that it’s suitable for everybody, from the online casino novice to the veteran shark. Our Live Casino craps games include dynamic statistics, a tutorial, and even an easy mode.
Leading development studio Evolution supplies our craps experience, meaning that players are guaranteed a smooth experience at our tables. We haven’t tried to muddy the rules or overcomplicate things either – Mr Green’s Live Casino craps is still based around the same dice game that has been popular for generations. After all, craps is such a simple game that it can be played on the street.
As mentioned, craps, krabs, or crabs has been around in some form or another since the first millennium AD, albeit in the guise of a game called hazard. This pastime was introduced to the United States at the turn of the 1900s by the French-Creole socialite and politician Bernard Xavier Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville. The game of craps as we know it wouldn’t really take off until the middle of the following century, though.
Other possible origins for the casino favourite are in a Roman pastime that used pig knucklebones instead of dice and an Arabic game known as Al Dar. Of course, few of these older hobbies bear much resemblance to today’s version of craps, which has gained popularity as a spectacle at the casino due to how it has been represented in movies like Ocean’s Thirteen, Hard Eight, and Kingpin.
A new player’s first impression of craps may be an intimidating one. After all, the game board is covered with so many words and numbers it resembles the worst effort at motorway signposting. However, craps is one of the easiest casino games to play because it is based solely around the roll of a pair of dice. Note that there are two types of craps, though, determined by whether the players bet against the casino or each other.
In a real-life casino, players would normally start by familiarizing themselves with the staff at the craps table. These are, in no particular order, the box-person, the stickperson, and a number of dealers. Online, all roles are generally covered by a single person and any number of visual elements on the game screen. There can also be some unwritten rules when playing craps in person, such as always cheering for the active player or ‘shooter’.
As in roulette, the type and number of bets available are what gives craps its complicated table. However, there’s no need to memorise the entire rulebook to get started with playing the game at Mr Green. So, let’s break things down so you can get on with rolling the dice. In brief, the basic objective of craps is to roll a number (the ‘point’) twice before the two dice throw up a total of seven.
There are seven different ways to bet in craps, which can alter the previous objective a little. These are the Pass Line bet and the Don’t Pass bet, the Come and Don’t Come bet, the Field and the Place bet, and the Proposition bet. We’ll go over the first two – Pass Line and Don’t Pass – here, as they’re among the most common bets placed by players.

Craps at Mr Green is one of the most sophisticated and up-to-date versions of the game that can be found online. Evolution Gaming has set a fantastic scene for our players, placing all the action within the confines of an underground bar. It’s retro in intent but definitely not in practice, as features like a potential winnings indicator and even a first-person mode help to distinguish our offering from many others out there.
Live craps is designed to offer a more interactive experience than other online games. Players will be treated to information regarding other players, such as what numbers they require to win. Also, Evolution Gaming’s addition of an easy mode means that the novice shooter doesn’t have to learn quite so many different bets, so they can get by with just the two we’ve outlined above.
Before we delve into this topic, it’s important that you understand what RNG means. RNG or random number generation is the god of all luck-based activities in casino gaming and video gaming in general. RNG does exactly as its name suggests – generates random numbers. These numbers can be the sides of a dice, the numbers and suits of a playing card, or where the ball lands in a game of roulette.
So, how does that apply to our craps games? The main difference between the standard live craps and first-person craps is that the latter uses a random number generator rather than the dice of a human dealer. It’s a slower experience but one that’s designed to be much more immersive for our customers. First-person craps omits the human element (and the time pressure) of the live casino to bring you a state-of-the-art 3D-rendered game room.
It’s possible to switch between first-person craps and live casino craps instantly by pressing the Go Live button that’s included in every Evolution Gaming first-person title.
