The History of Casino Craps

[ English ]

The recorded history of Craps dates back to a dice game known as Hazard, which goes all the way back to Bernard de Mandeville in New Orleans in Eightteen Thirteen. Hazard is believed to be a descendant of Azzahr, which means ‘the die’ a game played by Arabs.

The game developed as it spread out from the Arab regions to Europe and then to England. By the early eighteenth century, formal rules for Hazard had been developed. France adopted the British variation of Hazard and is believed to have been imported to the us by early French colonizers. In the mid-Eighteenth century, when the English defeated the French in Canada, the French colonizers relocated to Louisiana. Dice were enjoyed on river boats, clubs and wharfs and a simplified ‘American’ version of Craps was developed. The game moved west and is a well-known game that is played all over the U.S. and throughout the world.

The name ‘Craps’ is believed to be a French articulation of the word crabs, which refers to a pair of ones. There are 2 general varieties of Craps that are played-street Craps and bank Craps. Street caps, accurately named since it’s competed in on the streets is where a tosser sets a point and then attempts to roll that point. The wagering is made either for or opposed to the shooter and someone has to cover the bet for the craps game to go on.

In casino Craps, which is the familiar game, gambled on in casinos, the casino backs the casino game. The players play against the casino-the house covers all of the bets of all of the individuals. Craps used to be a quite well-loved game but in the past 20 years had divided itself and other games, like poker and twenty-one became more well-known. However, Craps is observing a come back in popularity once again in internet casinos and in land based casinos.
