Craps tournaments are a totally different experience than just playing at a live table because you are not only competing against the house, but you are also competing against other players. The competitive nature really adds to what is already a very energetic game and makes for a wonderful experience.
It can be a lot of fun for craps shooters. Some tournaments are free while others have a very low buy-in, if you want to try them out for the first time. Some casinos offer low cost tournaments for people to come play. Of course, experienced players can spend large amounts of money on high stakes tournaments.
Tournaments can be a fun experience, but they are not for everyone. Definitely worth checking out if you’ve never done it as it’s an experience every craps player should have at least once.
Unfortunately I have some bad news for you — to date, you cannot play Craps tournaments online. You can play Craps online — but not in a tournament format. To date there are no virtual casinos offering craps tournaments.
This is a real shame — as I have played Craps in tournament format before at various casinos, and they are great fun. The rules are simple, you buy your ticket and they give you a certain amount of chips. Then you have a time limit, and in each round, the person with the fewest chips is eliminated.
Another format I’ve played is the “versus” mode — where you play head-to-head in a craps tournament against another person — kind of like single-elimination basketball tournaments. That was fun.
The most common Craps tournament, however, is for “rounds” as I mentioned initially. The strategy for these tournaments is amazing and really changes the way you play Craps.
So, sadly, that’s the way it is — there are no online craps tournaments at the moment. If this changes, don’t worry — I’ll update this page immediately with links to casinos that are offering tournaments.
