How to play street dice
Street Dice is a variation on the casino game of Craps, but with slighter modified rules. It is sometimes referred to as “Street Craps”, even if it isn’t played in the street – in fact, in some areas, it is illegal to play gambling games in the street.
The game is played with two dice, which are used by a single player known as the “shooter” in each game. At the start of play, everyone involved except the shooter place bets on whether the shooter will “pass” on the first roll (which means they roll 7 or 11), or is they will “crap out” by rolling 2, 3, or 12. If any of these numbers are rolled on the first roll, the game is over and the bets are paid.
If the game continues, then the number that the shooter rolled becomes the “point.”
The shooter now continues to roll the dice, and must either score 7 or match the point. All the bets from the first round remain valid, but any bets that the shooter would “pass” are turned into bets that the shooter will re-roll the value of the point before rolling a 7. Any other bets are transformed into the opposite, that the shooter will roll a 7 before they are able to match the point.
When either the point is matched, or a 7 is rolled, the game is over. The bets can be paid out, and the game can start over again with a new shooter and a new round of betting.
