Craps has a very long history; some estimate that the first craps games were played in the Middle East in the 1500s. From there the game migrated north into Europe before finding its way into the United States. It was in the United States that the game evolved into the phenomenon that we are familiar with today.

There Are Two Types of Modern Craps Games

One of the craps games is street craps, which is what we all see in movies being played on the street. In street craps, players bet against each other on the results of rolling die. The other version is the popular casino craps. Casino craps involves playing against the casino, not against other players. Both games involve two die, the point, and craps--a seven.
