I can't tell you how many good rolls were killed by a dealer or floor guy's smart remark.

***********

Let's get back to giving our dice dealing student here some real crap-dealing advice:

Keep the stick calls straight and straight-up,

learn the "math in your head" cold for prop bets,

practice your chip cutting and chip handling,

learn to deal with brutal floor supervisors and nasty players in a very rough industry with serenity, - or you won't last your first WEEK in a casino.

Trust me - your job as a casino dealer is to suit up and show up on time, prove yourself reliable and honest, be curteous and reliable, not get offended by either player or supervisor, and to show up the next day for more black eyes.

All for $7.50 an hour plus some very small tips in the break-in house. And to be happy with that for years in order to advance.

You're more like a cab driver as a break-in dealer, than auditioning for the tonight show with Jay Leno.

And if you want to socialize and converse with players, trust me, learn Pai Gow. A jammed up crap game will have a break-in dice dealer drowning in sweat and wetting his pants, just to keep up with the game and keep his job for the first three months.

By the way, where did you go to dealer school?

If you're asking us all for the slick stick calls, and not to legitemately learn the game cold first, then know now that the fancy stuff can wait. I tell you, if a floorman or pit boss hears a newbie dice dealer being slick with his calls when he doesn't have his basic game down pat, - he'll be shoe Blackjack for his first YEAR. It looks BAD.

To appear professional as a dice dealer when you start - know how to deal the base game without any fancy swirls and whistles, which'll just piss of your new boss as a show-off show-boater.

Just deal the game by the book, and deal it WELL, as you have humbly studied the basics, - and you'll make it.

I dealt dice for seven years with Stations Casinos, and I kept it straight up, as well as dealing Pai Gow Poker. My two games, only and really. The other dealers were Blackjack and Roulette. Dice was more interesting and exciting to deal, true - as well as much nastier for the action - and you'll see. It got to the point where I was so relied upon as a "reliable dice dealer who did his job without getting fancy pants," - I begged - and got, my last month dealing Pai Gow Poker, - just to finally get off of dice. And trust me, in the end, that was a TREAT.

Paigowdan,
I've heard the term but could you throw in some for instances of shooter's "taking shots"?
Is that to you as someone attempting dice influencing?
Have you witnessed at a live game where you believed someone could influence the dice positively in their favor more than a random roll?
thanks, Petro

Pedro -

A shot-taker is a player who tries to slip a "cheating bet in" on a dice game: "Algo suave," tu sabes.....
- taking back a DC bet when a 7 or 11 is rolled during the point;
- claiming that he had another bet up that he "should have won on, and must be paid on," - when he made a different bet that really lost.
- claiming that you gave him less money in chips that he gave you in money,
- etc.

Nothing to do with the roll or the dice setting at the roll. Always something to do when the dice are in the air, the dealers are calculating the payouts and losing bets, the 'busy" dealer time when the 'money is busy" - and there may be confusion made, - to change the dollar amount......

Any claim that "the casino dealer made mistake #'x' - and he owes me money!..." or by trying to take back a losing bet quickly off of the table before it is noticed, etc. Stuff like that. A shot taker may just even try to be upsetting to a casino dealer, just to make him angry and "lose his professional bearing."

A lot of crap is attempted with Tony or John walk in off of the street, to see what "they can do for a little money." Most people are not like that, but when you see a thousand people a week, you see a little thievery and nastiness on a casino table, especially a dice table.

I am retired from dice dealing, now working in a casino industry office. I do not miss this part of the casino floor.
