The above video is the next video in the RoadGambler Real Craps series.

A little bit of a spoiler for the beginning: I buy in during the middle of a really good roll.

I know, I know. It’s rude and bad form to buy in during the middle of a roll. But considering the circumstances, would you buy in? Watch the beginning and let me know what you think.

NOTE:

It has come to our attention that the above video is playing sound, but not audio.

This is a problem that our IT department is attempting to fix. For now, we will transition the video to Youtube, however, Youtube, or some third party, has been aggressive in copyright striking our videos, so this may only be a short term solution. Nowadays, almost every casino plays music in the background, and that ultimately results in a copyright claim or strike.

We will work diligently to correct this problem and the video will be playable first thing tomorrow morning.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

EDIT: It seems that our IT department has fixed the issue.

  • I would’ve bought in as well. For as long as he rolled I was surprised there weren’t more fire bet markers on the table. It’s nice when numbers are being hit even nicer when it’s point numbers.

  • I would have hesitated, but I would have eventually bought in. I would wait until there was a good break in the action like when a point was made or some weird payoff going on at the other side of the table and then snuck in my buy-in.

    For how long he was shooting, I was surprised that more folks didn’t press up their bets, even just a little.

    Awesome work on the videos. Thanks.

  • Its working great on my iPhone
    Im a conservative pb and conservative presser but that was hard to watch because i could have made a good bit on that roll.

    • RoadGambler says:

      True, there is a downside to my method of play. When the table is rolling that well, you win less.

      But, most tables are cold tables, and making sure your bankroll survives is, I think, more important because you never know when the table will heat up.

      Aggressive play would have smashed that table.

  • Yes that young man was on one of those rolls that you don’t see to often. I was going off my recliner waiting for that 12. I have to go back and check it but I do think he did pop on the yo a few times. I always look at peoples chip racks to see if the tables are hot or cold. For betting very conservative he ended up with a pretty nice stack. RG thank you and all your workers for the best videos out there. Take Care and have safe trips on all of your travels.

    • RoadGambler says:

      Thanks, my friend. I appreciate the kind words, and I’ll pass on the compliments to my video person, who works hard on the video.

  • Craps fanatic says:

    Another awesome video. Thank you. With the way he was rolling, I would have done the same thing– buy in as soon as he hit his point, or try and sneak in a come bet. Surprised no one was betting bigger considering the streak he was on. Nonetheless, it’s good to see someone on a hot roll. Headed to Vegas in two weeks; hope I can find a hot table.
    Thanks again for your great videos. Anxiously awaiting part 2.

    The first shooter was in the zone. Nothing was fazing him. Did they cancel about three throws because they “weren’t far enough”?

    The first dealer was another matter. Not paying bets. Place bets put on sloppily.

    • RoadGambler says:

      I think that was his literal first day on the job. I’m not exactly sure, but as some point, I remember him saying that it was his first day dealing.

      I noticed that you saw that he mis-marked my place bet. Good eye.

      In those situations, I don’t fault the dealer. Everyone has to start somewhere. I fault the box. The box should be watching him. It shouldn’t fall on the players to tell him what to do and what to pay.

      On those ‘no rolls’, the dice went into the rail. On one of the no rolls, you can kind of see the camera system shake when one of the die hit it. Lol.

  • The first shooter had a head-shaking roll. On 25 rolls that we see, he throws a yo or a 5 five times, a 6 four times, 8 and 10 three times, a 4 twice and once for a 2, 3 and 9 (bad luck on the 9 come bet Road Gambler. ) The 12 and more importantly Big Red never showed. He also paid hardway bettors six times. Remember when Road Gambler begins taping, shooter has already hit all the all-small and needs only the 12 for all-tall. Fun to watch. Thanks Road Gambler.

  • Al Sherman says:

    Yeah it’s a tough call on buy-in with a hot shooter but I’m too timid and superstitious but you ended up some money on his roll and didn’t slow down his payday at all. Thx for the videos really good to see different rolls and how they affect various betting strats w/ real rolls.

    • RoadGambler says:

      YW, my friend.

      Also, since this was your first post, we approved it to get you past our spam filter. From now on, your posts will appear immediately.

  • If he really was rolling 15 min before u got there it took him a long time to make his first point of 10 ….can tell by the fire bet markers. Very rare having ATS and the Fire bet on the same table. There seems there was room for Lauren on your side of the table when you first got to that table.

  • RoadGambler says:

    I can’t speak to what happened before I arrived, or how long he had been rolling. The unofficial time keeper was the gentleman in the video, who you can hear comment on the shooter. At one point, you can hear him saying something like he had been shooting for an hour. That would add up to about 15 minutes or so, before I arrived, so it makes sense.

    Also, it’s not a very fast game.

    As for Lauren, she was still new to the game at this point. I did try to get her into the game, with no luck. Tables like one you saw in the video are intimidating for new players.

    But as I explained to her later, if she had gotten in, the results would probably have been different.

  • I would have bought in also as slow as the game was going as soon as he made a point or there was a break in the action its not like you were going to slow that game down. The dealers are not very good at all at 21:12 the player to stick left makes a don’t come bet of $60 the shooter throws a 8 the dealer leaves it on the don’t come the next roll is a 11 the dealer then takes the don’t come bet. I just don’t understand why players don’t know or watch their bets. Thanks for the video and looking forward to parts 2 and 3.
    Cheers
    Ron

  • At the 15min mark someone places a DC bet for a decent amount, a six is rolled and DC isn’t moved to the 6…sure enough next roll is an 11 and they scope it up…whoever made that bet is sleeping along with the dealer.

    I get that the dealers should be paying attention, but the person making the bet needs to watch things as well, this happens wayyyyy to often for my liking and people have nobody to blame but themselves. Its your money, keep an eye on it.

    • RoadGambler says:

      Hi Nikita,

      Great observation. I didn’t even see that. Way too many people don’t pay attention. They think the box or the dealers will protect them. Did you see the Resorts video? The mistakes in that video are somewhat comical.

      FYI, we filter first comments for spam. You are now good to go, and your comments will appear immediately.

      Welcome!

      • I don’t play the darkside, but doesn’t the DC bettor have the option on whether to move to a rolled number or not? For instance, declining a 6 and waiting for a 4 or 10. The wait would seem to be fine with the house because the bet can only win on the next roll with a 2 or 3 and will lose to Big Red or a yo.

        • RoadGambler says:

          Yes, this is correct. On the dark side, the bettor can decline the travel. It’s not a good play, but people do it.

  • John Koryto says:

    Is it bad that the main thing I noticed in this video is the poor lighting?? Every time the dealer, both stick and base, leans over the table they leave a large shadow. 😀😄😁
