A long time ago in 1998 at Mohegan Sun, I noted in my gaming log that a particular Shooter rolled the dice 43 times without a 7 (according to WoO, this is about 1 in 2540). The 44th roll was a 7. I have not seen a higher total, but have seen 30+ a few times.

Just wondering what craps players have seen along these lines. Anyone know of a "record no-7"?

I chose the 51+ but there was no official log or record kept. It was at Caesars and the shooter held the dice for more than an hour but surprisingly made few passes in that hour. I am going to "estimate" that in the early throws the rolls came quickly but took longer as the bets increased, so averaging one roll per minute and the hand lasting about 70 minutes I made that choice. It was a random roller who just picked 'em up and threw 'em.

and no 7s during the come-out rolls either, right?

I also marvel at how a good long hand can have not that many passes ... OR fail to hit any of my numbers generally

In all my years of playing craps I was at the table once for a Monster Roll. Happened at Mandalay Bay. A young Hispanic guy had the dice. The guy had never played craps before and had no idea what he was doing. He couldn't roll a 7 to save his life. On the come out, nothing but 7's-11's. He made a lot of points but not as many as you would think as he held the dice what seemed like forever. He just keep rolling numbers.

I had the last Southwest flight of of Vegas to Phoenix and I was worried that I wan't going to make the flight......so I was almost hoping he would 7 out.

The game slowed down to a crawl. Three deep around the table. There was very heavy action at the opposite end of the table. Dude probably made the point 20 times and rolled tons of numbers. Had the dice for what seemed well over an hour and a half, maybe longer.

Of course I didn't cash super big because I kept thinking the hammer was coming out. Pressed a little but didn't have the balls to leave more money out. Hindsight.

When he did finally crap the table gave the dude a huge ovation and lots of tips came his way including 2 pinks.

My buddy did well and was so liquored up that he insisted on tipping the pilot on the trip back to Phoenix.

When I had my own "monster roll" of 90+ at Foxwoods, I made quite a few Come-Out 7's, so personally my own best is 22 no 7. I was tipped very well compliments of the others. I've posted it here, so I won't go into much, but on that roll, a guy at opposite end went from -8500 to about +27,000. I felt great!

I dont recall ANY sevens being thrown... until the very last throw of the dice for that shooter. And as I said, that would mean about 70 minutes of throwing without a 7.

As strange as it sounds, I once held the dice and rolled and rolled and NEVER threw a 7. Not on the come out , and not on my final throw either.

It was about 8 years ago and I drove up on a Friday night with a date. We reached Caesars at about midnight... and our room wasn't ready. "Okay," I said to the check in clerk, "I'll be at the craps tables."

Off we went... and my girlfriend was not happy at all. There was a craps table open with no players. She sat in a chair dozing off as I picked up the dice and rolled and rolled. I rolled for about 20 minutes when a manger from check-in came over and said the room was ready.

"Let's go NOW" the girlfriend said with authority that meant if I did not go right then I would not be sleeping in that room for the rest of the weekend.

So I took my bets down, colored up what was in my rail. left the passline bet (I could not remove it) and said "it's for the dealers" and went to the room.

No seven ever rolled. Not on the come out, and not when I was "done."

Hi Alan,

Jerry "Stickman" rolled 76 times without a 7 either on the come-out rolls or during the point segment. As many of our readers know, "Stickman" is an elite dice controller. That's the most I ever saw. (We usually have someone keep track of the sevens if the shooter never sets for a seven.) Sadly, the 77th number rolled was a seven --- kind of poetic. This occurred at Bellagio in 2008 before I was banned.

The longest streak of no 7 I saw was at the Rio, on the morning I was flying out.
I had an hour before we had to leave for the airport, and I got on a table with just a few players.
The shooter set the point of 8 and made that point after a couple of rolls. He then rolled a couple of 7s on the Come Out roll.
His next point was a 10, which he never made.
45 minutes later, I am sweating, needing to leave for the airport, but unwilling to leave. It was a relief when the 7 came.
I didn't have much on the table ($75 each on 5/9, and $90 each on 6/8). Getting paid $105 each time
Total win on his roll was $3500, so the minimum number of throws he had was 45 or so (I took a long time to press to $90 back then)
