  • It would be a good comparison to show what your winnings would have been with a PL and come and max odds.
    It’s nice to run into a shooter like the one here.

  • Did you notice a roll counter while playing? If you watch the stick, they are always touching a spot at the bottom left corner of the center bets. The first stick used a white lamer and the second stick used his hand. I just thought maybe they were tracking roll count or length of time between rolls. The conspiracy theorist in me say it’s something else, but I won’t go there.

    Happy 4th!

      I did not see this. I will watch and look for it after the fireworks display.

      Now you have piqued my curiosity.

  • No fire bet at that table…
    That was close to all 6 different points made !
    No one was on the repeaters ..
    ..the 2 and 4 were made ( @ least )

  • RG
    Dave Tangs post has certainly piqued my curiosity also. I clearly see what he points out with the stick man. Being relatively new to the game,these actions may be clear to a more experienced player,but i am in the dark. I understand the roll count and length possibility,so without accusing anyone of shady stuff,what are Dave Tangs theorist concerns? This is for a novice’s info and perhaps something to be aware of.

    • @Mike C personally, I don’t think casinos need to cheat at craps. The negative expectation of the game is in their favor already, so there is no reason to cheat, risk getting caught, and possibly lose your license or be fined by the state gaming commission.

      That being said, there is a tiny part of me that thinks “what if casinos don’t care and want to see what they can get away with?” (i.e. magnets to manipulate dice, hired people to interrupt hot streaks, timing of cocktail waitresses, etc. ). Anyways, I try not think about that stuff and focus on having fun, but sometimes there are losing streaks that make my mind blame everything else, when the reality it’s just that, a streak.

      • Dave,
        Unfortunately, there are casinos that don’t care and do resort to cheating their customers. I have personally been subjected to some sordid tactics during some of my longer rolls. One casino, whose name I won’t mention, I believe, specifically trains it’s dealers to use tactics such as banging the stick and slamming chips in a threatening manner in order to distract the shooter. They do this because they think they can get away with it.

  • Thanks Road Gambler, I love the dynamics of a long roll like that. By my count, the shooter (who appeared to be a novice) rolled 40 times, making eight points along with one natural winner. In one six-roll stretch, he threw a 4 five times and no one was on the 4. The outside numbers were clicking: eight rolls of 4 and eight more 9s, six 10s, five 8s, four hits each on the 6 and 5. He threw craps dice three times, interestingly enough all three on the come out. He did not throw a yo or midnight and big red came only twice. Had you made your same starting $60 wager on 6 and 8 along with $25 on the other numbers and played $10 pass line with quarter odds, I think you would have made well over $700 without ever pressing a bet. Alas, hindsight is always 20-20. I do admire your patience and your timing in this instance. Thanks again for the video.

      You’re welcomed, Dice Out.

      Those types of rolls are definitely fun.

      Thanks also for the summary of his rolls. I hadn’t done that, and I appreciate your analysis.

  • Nice come back You pulled that rabbit out of the hat. It shows that with proper money management and a large enough bank roll you will eventually get on a hot roll or table. A tip of the hat to you well done. If you get to Biloxi hit the Palace (not the Imperial Palace) for a session. Thanks for the video keep them coming and good luck in Mississippi.

  • Lawrence Roth says:

    A fun roll to watch. The question touched on the sight, hopefully discussed more on this forum sometime in the future, and manifested through this player, is can one set the dice to create the “propensity” of the dice to land on a certain number or sister number? (sort of like the heads or tails analogy of a previous post). I didn’t throw all that great in Vegas this week, but still better than most all of the random set players that I played with.

  • RG- freaky good timing on taking down the place bets. I’m normally long gone after 2-3 points hit. You maxed out that shooter though. Good for you and best of luck at your next stop.
