Electromagnetic Dice System known as a “Wall Joint” - Includes two 90 lb magnets (built into the walls to create the magnetic field), remote control system for controlling the dice, transformer, horseshoe shaped “keeper” (aligns the polarity of the magnetic dice), and two magnetic dice.
-- who started 6:5 BlackJack ... and tighter slot machines ?? .... not the Mafia ... it was Corporate GREED
BTW, the design of those antique Chinese dice were more apt to be balanced than current cheap Mexico dice ... notice the large 1 pip to compensate for the 6 pips
.... and can you give me 1 single regulation or law regarding dice specifications in Nevada ?
So if you want to tell me that an online gaming company or some offshore boat casino is screwing it's customers, I'll listen. You'd probably be right. But if you are trying to convince me that a modern big time casino, owned by MGM or CET is cheating at dice or roulette with magnets...I call BS. So produce some evidence in the last 30 years or so...I doubt you can.
I can't quote NGC dice regulations. But I run a business and wouldn't screw up millions if not billions in profit....to cheat at a game in which I already have a built in house edge.
As far as cheating goes, only the Ron Harrises and the Larry Volks out there know. I would imagine they have perfected things to keep them bought off for life now, so they would never come forward.
vendman1 - it's not called cheating in Nevada because there are no laws against it ... it's called increasing house edge or profit margin
vendman1 - are you saying as a business man you would only make the allowed built-in profit margin and refuse to increase your profit margin by say 800% if you could ??
The Corporate greedy casinos within the past decade did just that when they created 6:5 BlackJack (see http://www.blackjack-scams.com/html/6_5_blackjack.html )
In his book, Steven L Forte ( $750.00 at The Gambler's Book Shop on Eastern Ave. in Las Vegas) called “Casino Game Protection: A Comprehensive Guide”, explains on page 247:
The bottom line: in jurisdictions without regulations that set forth an acceptable range of tolerances or standards, it can be difficult to state when a die is legally acceptable, or when it should be deemed a cheating device.
As explained on our website (Link listed in my signature), there are no technical dice specification laws in Nevada
This vagueness in the Nevada dice laws allows the casinos to have an unfair game and increase the House edge as much as they desire --- just like they did when they started using 6:5 BlackJack to increase the House edge by over 800 percent
And don't conflate the two meanings of "fair". Gambling games are mathematically unfair in that they're tilted toward the house, but they are nevertheless fair (i.e. just) in that the rules apply equally to all parties. Use of a cheating device violates the second meaning of "fairness" and is illegal.
So you may not like a 6:5 game, but it's not unfair in the way that a game would be if it paid 3:2 on naturals but secretly had all the aces removed.
likewise with dice, Nevada does not have to use fair dice
