An Introduction to the Don’t Pass Bar 12 Bet In Craps
As is very apparent from the name of the craps bet type itself, the Don’t Pass Bar 12 bet in craps is the opposite of another type of craps bet we discussed earlier – the Pass Line bar bet. This bet is also a popular type of craps bet and is simple to learn.
One of the things that you should know before opting to place a Don’t Pass Bar 12 bet is the location of the Don’t Pass Bar. You place a Don’t Pass Bar 12 bet by positioning your chips on the Don’t Pass Bar. As in the case of the Pass Line craps bet, you need to place the bet before the shooter is through the come out roll.
More About the Don’t Pass Bar 12 Bet
For starters, when you place a Don’t Pass Bar 12 bet in craps, you are playing against the shooter, the person who is throwing the dice during the game. So how is this type of bet different from the Pass Line bet? The basic difference lies in the numbers. Unlike in the Pass Line bet, where you are banking on a 7 or an 11 in the come out roll to fetch you a win, you can score a win instantly if the shooter’s come out roll throws up a two or three.
If you remember, in the Pass Line bet, a two or three during the come out roll would guarantee a win to the shooter, not to you. You would win if the shooter’s come out roll threw up a 7 or an 11. That is how, at the basic level, the Pass Line bet and Don’t Pass Bar 12 bet are different.
There is one major thing about the Don’t Pass Bar 12 bet; if you noticed, I said you are guaranteed a win if the come out roll is a two or a three. So what about the 12? Should the come out roll throw up a 12, then you do not win, but you also do not lose.
Don’t Pass Bar 12 Bets – Some Tips
The Don’t Pass Bar 12 craps bet is also known as a self-service bet because you have the option of placing the chips you wish to wager during the course of a game yourself. It is not enough if you know just the location of the Don’t Pass bar; you also need to know how the whole bet works.
Another interesting point about the Don’t Pass Bar 12 bet, while you are not allowed to place this bet once the shooter has completed the opening roll, you have the freedom to take away your wager amount from this betting slot – the Don’t Pass Bar 12 betting slot – after the come out roll if the shooter is saddled not with an outright win but a point.
You lose the game if you opt not to remove the money you have wagered from the Don’t Pass Bar 12 bet position and the shooter’s roll throws up the same point again. On the other hand, if you leave the wager intact and the shooter roll out a seven in his next attempt, you win the game.
