Craps has always been one of the most challenging and exciting casino games to master. Most providers have gone for live versions of the game, but others like Play’n Go have managed to adapt the game into a solo experience.
You get the full features list here, complete with all of the advanced bets that Craps players love to hate. We’ll tell you all about our time with the game in our Craps review, discussing all of the available options and giving you a taste of the winnings we walked away with.
Minimum / Maximum Bet:
Dice Game, Theme Selection
Craps is one of the most popular brick-and-mortar casino games and social interaction makes up a big part of the experience. So, Play’n Go took on quite the task of capturing the essence of a traditional Craps game in a single-player title. We think the provider did a fantastic job, adding in all kinds of voice interactions and commentary to immerse you deeper into the game. It’s still nowhere near as dynamic as the real deal, but it manages to get as close as possible.
The feature list is what you’d expect to find at any Craps table. There are a handful of general functions like clear, undo, and roll dice, as well as a vast range of basic and advanced wagers that you can place on the table. Play’n Go have even thrown in the option to choose between three distinct themes, which change none of the gameplay options but create a unique vibe, nonetheless.
Basic Bets – The Craps table can be pretty overwhelming for newcomers. All of the available betting options are laid out and there are a lot of available choices. More basic bets like Pass Line and Come are ideal for beginners, as you get to grips with how the game and its two main rounds work. It’s worth pointing out how well the dice animations work and even beginners can get a good idea of which points on the table are easier to hit.
Advanced Bets – If, like us, you love going for more advanced bets, you’ll want to check out the right-hand side of the Craps table. You can place Any Seven, Horn, and Any Craps bets, as well as more specific dice rolls like 3 or 11, 2 or 12, and Free Odds. We got some of our best wins here, including our biggest at ₹1,200,000. The game doesn’t offer much in terms of guidance, but it does show you possible payouts whenever you hover over a bet type.
Theme Selection – At the start of the game, you can choose between vintage, classic and modern theme options. These change the game’s look, without touching upon any gameplay features. Vintage and classic are quite similar, with the main difference being that vintage has a red table, while classic goes for, well a classic green. On the other hand, modern has a neon blue table which stands out from the other options. We love the idea of picking different themes, although you can’t just change the theme mid-game and need to reload the app every time you want to change things up.
Play’n Go managed to create an engaging single-player experience with Craps. We loved the theme selection, as well as the full list of Craps betting options that are available. If, like us, you’ve played quite a bit of Craps, then you’ll be thrilled by all the wagering choices and win potential that comes with them through a maximum bet level of ₹500,000.
But beginners will likely struggle here. It’s a pretty complicated table to wrap your head around and this version of Craps doesn’t do much to guide you along the way.
Microgaming’s version of Craps only comes with a classic theme, but it still includes the full list of wagering options. Although it’s missing the immersive commentary from Play’n Go’s version, the visuals are arguably better here, making you feel like you’re actually at the dice table. The biggest downsides are the reduced maximum bet level at ₹50,000 and lower RTP at 98.64%.
Urgent Games’ Craps comes with a lower RTP at 98.64%, as well as a maximum bet of ₹4,000, but we found it a lot easier to follow. The game even gives you a different angle on dice rolls, which gives you a better view of every round. Sure, you’re missing out on the commentary we enjoyed so much in the Play’n Go version, but you get a game that beginners can more easily understand.
