New to the Wizard and I get the impression that this is a well informed bunch.....what's the verdict on the concept of "dice control"......

As hotly debated as anywhere else.

My personal opinion: Technically feasible, though I seriously doubt that the vast majority of people who claim to be proficient can do anything useful.

I'm up for a dice control discussion as much as the next guy, probably more, but this had to be a troll thread. Use the search function.

the idea is intoxicating but having played craps for years it's clear to me the seven is the hammer......the action on the dice seem to be too random even when playing with "dice controllers"

There's been plenty of discussion if you want to look for it.

Of the best points that have been made, I would pick these:

*if possible, only the most talented could pull it off, the rest of us can forget it.

*that momentum is factored by velocity squared means the task is greater than might be assumed. Little changes in velocity are actually huge changes.

*casinos have to be tolerant for it to work too. If they are losing money they won't be tolerant. Some posters have related stories about intolerant casinos.

*it is fairly irresistible for trying to do it. I think the more you play craps, the more you are tempted to set the dice at least. I am quite sure I am ineffective but I have my sets I do, and it is part of the fun for me.

Writing books and teaching seminars don't count.



That's the ONLY way to make money from craps. There are just enough suckers that believe in that nonsense.

Actually, there is another way to make money from craps.....own the casino.
