Snake Eyes

In the context of dice games, such as craps, the term snake eyes refers to a roll of two ones on a pair of six-sided dice. The probability of rolling snake eyes is 2.8% (1:36 true odds).

If the shooter rolls this combination during their come-out roll, they crap out. This results in a loss for pass line bets and a win for don’t pass bet wins.

The combination takes its name from the fact that two 1s look like a pair of eyes.
