Snake Eyes

Home » Snake Eyes

“Snake Eyes” in craps refers to a roll of the dice resulting in two ones, making the total two. This term is one of the many colorful slang terms used in the game of craps to describe specific dice rolls. Snake Eyes is significant because it’s one of the possible losing rolls for Pass Line bets on the come-out roll, along with a total of three (called “Ace-Deuce”) or twelve (referred to as “Boxcars”). The name “Snake Eyes” comes from the visual resemblance of the two single dots on the dice to the eyes of a snake. Although it’s a rare roll, it’s a well-known term due to its unique appearance and impact on the game.
