Games that use dice and the dice themselves date back to the Middle Eastern Crusades, but current craps is approximately a century old. Modern craps evolved from the old Anglo game called Hazard. Nobody absolutely knows the ancestry of the game, however Hazard is believed to have been created by the Englishman, Sir William of Tyre, around the twelfth century. It’s supposed that Sir William’s knights bet on Hazard during a siege on the fortification Hazarth in 1125 AD. The title Hazard was gotten from the fortress’s name.

Early French settlers brought the game Hazard to Nova Scotia. In the 1700s, when expelled by the English, the French moved down south and settled in the south of Louisiana where they a while later became known as Cajuns. When they departed Acadia, they took their favored game, Hazard, along. The Cajuns simplified the game and made it more mathematically fair. It’s said that the Cajuns adjusted the title to craps, which was gotten from the name of the losing toss of two in the game of Hazard, referred to as "crabs."

From Louisiana, the game migrated to the Mississippi scows and across the country. A great many acknowledge the dice builder John H. Winn as the creator of modern craps. In 1907, Winn developed the current craps layout. He created the Don’t Pass line so players could wager on the dice to not win. Later, he developed the spaces for Place bets and put in place the Big 6, Big 8, and Hardways.
