Video craps is the modern version of an old game. Craps can be played in a casino, on your computer, or in a handheld video game. Modern craps started in the United States between the late 1700s and early 1800s. Gambling was then made illegal in America before Nevada permanently legalized gambling in 1931. Nevada has since spawned one of America's most famous cities, Las Vegas. In Vegas, craps has become one of the most popular games.

There are two styles of craps develop in the United States. One version is "bank craps" where a player bets against the house. When gambling was illegal in most of the U.S., the laws refer to "bank" type games. The other version of craps is "street craps," where players bet against the house. Video craps is played using the "bank" version on a virtual table.
