How Does One Play Street Dice?

Delwin Steven Campbell/CC-BY-2.0

Street dice, or street craps, is played by having a shooter and betters; before the shooter rolls the dice, bets are placed on whether the shooter will roll a number two times in a row without rolling a seven or an 11. There is one main better and the other players are also able to place wagers on the shooter.

The game will begin when the shooter makes a bet. The rest of the players of the game will often combine to match that bet. The game will not begin until the bet is met. The players will call out whether they think the shooter is capable of getting the same number twice in a row. Players that have called out to the negative will win the bet if the shooter rolls a two, three or 12. Players that have called out a positive bet will win if the shooter rolls a seven or an 11. If any other numbers other than two, three, seven, 11 or 12 are rolled, the shooter will continue to roll the dice. During this time, the bets are often raised to higher levels. The shooter continues to roll until any of the aforementioned numbers are landed on.
