Craps FAQ


Real money craps is available on most of the US-friendly offshore casino sites. These sites are typically regulated outside the United States, which means that they don’t have to follow the federal or state-level regulations that prevent American businesses from offering real money online gambling products to US-based players.

Are the sites that offer online craps reliable?

All the popular casinos are 100% reliable, as they simply can’t afford to alienate their customer base by engaging in dishonest business practices due to the extremely competitive nature of the online gambling industry. However, you should always be careful with new sites that haven’t established their reputation yet, as there’s simply no denying the fact that some of the unregulated casino sites are nothing more than blatant scam attempts.

Is it safe to trust a casino site with my personal information?

Major networks casino sites rely on the latest encryption technologies to keep your financial data and personal information safe. As a result, your personal information is exceptionally unlikely to be accessed by an unauthorized individual or organization as long as you keep your password secure.

What is the difference between live craps and online craps?

Much like online blackjack or online roulette, online craps is played solo – the croupier is replaced by a computer program. The outcome of each game is determined by RNG software. Furthermore, online craps games tend to have a faster flow due to the fact that the player isn’t required to wait for anyone in order to make his move.

How do I know that my craps site isn’t rigged?

RNG software used by renowned casino sites is certified and frequently tested by independent regulatory entities, which guarantees that the algorithm generates random results and that the casino doesn’t manipulate the house edge.

What craps variants are available online?

Most online casinos offer only the standard variant of craps – unfortunately, finding exotic craps games tends to be rather hard in the United States.

What are the best banking methods for online craps players?

Online craps players can fund their casino accounts using Western Union/MoneyGram money orders or credit card payments. Withdrawals are usually handled via a bank wire transfer, check by courier or Western Union/MoneyGram money order.

Is playing real money online craps legal?

Federal anti-gambling regulations apply to online casino operators and financial institutions instead of individual players, which means that neither the Unlawful Internet Enforcement Act nor the Federal Wire Act prevents US-based players from joining one of the offshore casino sites. Some of the more restrictive states explicitly prohibit online gambling, but most states allow their residents to pursue their hobby online due to the fact that they have no regulations pertaining specifically to real money online casino games.

E-wallet deposit and withdrawals aren’t available for US-based players. Why?

The previous Department of Justice interpretation of the Federal Wire Act which was introduced after the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 was passed stated that processing online gambling-related transaction is illegal for e-wallet companies. This forced all the major players like E-Bay, Neteller and Skrill to withdraw from the US online gambling market. Even though the current interpretation states that the Wire Act doesn’t apply to online casino sites, e-wallet companies are still reluctant to return to the American offshore online gambling market.

Credit card deposits aren’t 100% reliable in the US. Why?

Back in 2007, the DoJ maintained that the Federal Wire Act prohibits American financial institutions from processing gambling-related transactions. Despite the fact that the new interpretation states that the regulations apply exclusively to online sports betting, many companies prefer to continue blocking all payments that have anything to do with online casino sites.

What welcome bonuses are available for real money craps players?

Most casino sites offer a welcome bonus of up to $2,000 with a 200% or 300% match on the first payment.
