Craps Field Bet



Field Bet

The Field bet is a one-roll wager – it must win or lose every roll. This Craps bet can be made at any time, even on a come out roll. The Field bet occupies a large space on the layout marked with the word “Field”. It contains the numbers 2,3,4,9,10,11 and 12. If any of these numbers is thrown on the next roll, the Field bet wins. It loses to the numbers 5,6,7 and 8.

If a 2 or 12 are rolled, you get paid off double in most casinos. Some casinos will pay you triple for a 12 or 2. Any other Field numbers – a 3,4,9,10 or 11— are paid off at even money.

There are sixteen possible ways to roll all the Field numbers. The double pay for a 2 and 12 gives us eighteen winning units. There are, however, twenty ways to roll a 5,6,7 and 8. Thus, we have eighteen units won against twenty units lost. In result, the house edge for the Field bet is 5.55%. If casino gives 3 to 1 payoffs for a 12 or 2, that Field bet advantage is decreased to 2.7%.

All you have to do to make the Field bet is to place your chips in the area marked “Field”.
