    I'm looking for a good casino craps game. Has anyone tried a few of the games out there and have a recommendation?

    I already know how to play craps so a tutorial isn't necessary, but would be nice. Nice graphics and animation are a must.

    Aw Craps! for iPhone/iPod Touch

    Take a look at Aw Craps! for iPhone/iPod Touch. Very realistic betting and odds. Flick to throw dice. Manual dice rolls for learning. Simple tutorial to get you going fast.

    OK, I bit the bullet and bought the 4 main craps games. THey were all $1 except Aw Craps was $2. Here's my initial thoughts on each after playing each for about 10-15 min.

    Aw Craps - My favorite of the bunch. Very nice layout and graphics. Love the flick to roll the dice. Could use a bit better dice animation, but it works for me. Very realistic betting. You put your chips down, and then you call the bet. This makes betting a bit more tedious, but I like it. I also like that it shows you exactly how much you won or lost on each roll. Provides good info on each bet and what the payouts are. This one is a keeper.

    Craps Deluxe - My 2nd favorite. Has lots of options, such as the option to ask you if you want to press your place bets after you hit the number. The graphics are simplistic and the layout is very compact. It has stickman calls, which is nice. No dice animation, the numbers roll like a slot machine. I don't like that it doesn't show you how much you won or lost on each roll.

    Casino Craps - Has the nicest graphics and layout. No real dice animation, more like a slot machine where the numbers spin. Displays very quickly how much you won or lost on a roll for each bet, but you can tap on your bankroll to see the total amount won or lost. This is a more simple version, for example you can only place bets on numbers, you cannot buy numbers. You can only place C & E bets, you cannot buy each individually.

    Craps University - This was ok, more of a tutorial and beginners guide. It's a bit too tedious to place bets since each bet it defaults to a certain amount and you have to manually add or decrease. The graphics are a bit weak and the layout is very compact. Just doesn't have the visual appeal of either Aw Craps or Casino Craps. I do like how the dice roll down the table, but you don't control the roll, just tap the dice to roll. I hate the explosion sound it makes when you lost a bet. For some reason I just didn't like this one as much. Great for beginners.

    Most people are most familiar with only two styles. The craps game found in most casinos around the world is called bank craps or Las Vegas craps. The other best-known type of crap game is New York craps.

    Pass and Dont Pass : The most popular bets in craps are the Pass/Dont Pass, Come/Dont Come bets and these all pay even money.
    Come and Dont Come : Come and Dont Come bets are made after the initial roll of the dice. Like the Pass Line bet, the Come bet wins if a 7 or 11 are rolled and loses if 2 or 3 is rolled.

    Bets placed between the rolls of the dice
