Front Line

Home » Front Line

In craps, the term “Front Line” is another way of referring to the “Pass Line,” which is one of the most fundamental and commonly made bets in the game. When a player places a bet on the Front Line, they are essentially wagering that the shooter (the person rolling the dice) will win by either rolling a natural (a 7 or 11) on the come-out roll, or by establishing a point (rolling a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10) and then rolling that point number again before rolling a 7.

The Front Line bet is a popular choice because it has a relatively low house edge and simple rules, making it an attractive option for both novice and experienced players. It’s also often a required bet for participating in other aspects of the game, like betting on the odds, which is an additional bet that can be made after a point is established.

Winning a Front Line bet pays out at even money (1:1), which means if you bet $10 and win, you receive your original $10 back plus an additional $10 in winnings. The simplicity and favorable odds of the Front Line bet make it a central aspect of the excitement and strategy of craps.
