Shooter

Home » Shooter

In craps, the term “Shooter” refers to the player who rolls the dice. Each player at the table has the opportunity to be the shooter, with the role rotating around the table in a clockwise direction. The shooter’s main task is to make a “come-out roll” to start a new round of play. If a point is established on the come-out roll, the shooter continues to roll the dice until either the point number is rolled again (resulting in a win for bets on the pass line) or a seven is rolled (a “seven out”), which ends the shooter’s turn. The role of the shooter is central to the game of craps, as it is their roll that determines the outcomes and bets for the round.
