|English term or phrase: Craps!|
|In a craps game somebody shoots the dice. He says he wants a six but actually shoots a seven. Then somebody yells, "Craps!"|
Is this some kind of gambling expression or the same as "crap" (Mist etc.)?
|German translation:gambling expression|
I think, in this particular case it's a gambling expression, see the explanation below. The way the game works is that you bet on a number to be thrown, if it doesn't appear, it is "Craps" (which I guess relates to the actual word crap), but here it is an expression for this game specifically. See link.
