Summary

Based on the experience of an author who worked in Las Vegas casinos, "Get Dicey: Play Craps and Have Fun" emphasizes the entertainment value of craps while guiding the reader through the process of learning a game that fascinates and intimidates. Every type of bet is explained and the rules and payoffs are illustrated in numerous tables. Playing procedures such as when and how to make different bets are given in detail, and the author weaves in stories from her casino career to illustrate points in a friendly fun style. From the basic rules for shooting the dice to advanced betting strategies, the book offers a comprehensive guide to the game. Because craps is a game of verbal interactions, the book explains how to talk to casino staff and what to ask. Along with player etiquette and superstitions, the book decodes jargon and includes a glossary of terms.
