I don't know about every house in the world but my house this would never be allowed nor encouraged. We are never, ever told to interfere with the roll. If you're a guy standing straight out who picks em up and throws em before I even have a chance to stand back up or move out of the way, that's your problem if the dice come back and hit me, the stick, etc.


that's true - a stick person is supposed to sell the hardways, hops, props and while I loathe the hop bets, we don't even HAVE to sell at our casino. A chunk of our players bet ONLY hops and/or hardways with or without the field. However, sending the dice on a seven is NEVER allowed. Not even for a don't player. Sending them, bumping into a bet and having one flip over at the last second to a 7 is one thing - but they are NEVER flipped TO a 7 before being sent out. If we are sending the dice and they flip over to a 7 or a crap number, we are supposed to bring them back and re-flip them unless the player is persistent about 'as they lay.' I know I have been to casinos where stick people just slide the dice hard across the table and they hit the back wall and flip, but we are NOT allowed to do this at our house.



Says who? Some dealers talk because their job requires it. Yeah sure I won't distract a shooter, especially if I know they don't like conversation, but plenty of our regulars talk while they are shooting.

...



I find so many of these points of yours entertaining because I see 1,000 different things happen a night and every crap playing regular has their own superstition or conspiracy theory.. and this just adds to the list of things I've heard players banter about.









great post, these guys who think we care if they win or lose are out to lunch.

Cheap? Hendertucky and TheMResort.
Chatter? I've not been in awhile to Hendertucky and things change there and the day wears on and the smoke kills off some of the players and occasionally the crew.

I can do without the chat. Although if there is a lusty lady there and she wants to get into the lingo a bit, I'll laugh to, but mainly I just don't need the chatter.

if you are any good you know which audience to play to...you got a table full of old men regulars, just call the number once loud.......you got a bunch of some young people tourists, first timers etc then you can pull out your banter as they seem to enjoy it.

Funny stick calls can be entertaining but the important point is to be sure you realizee the stick call is instructions to dealers as to what to do and what sequence to do it it. The players should be aware of this too.

The most important stick call is "Dealers have shoes"..... that means the toke bet that is on the line now has odds on it and, wheter it wins or not. all dealers should remember that bettor is our friend.

I won't speak for all craps dealers, but I do think there is a slant for Do-side players as compared to Don't players. The reason for this is simple: the heavy majority of Don't players do not toke. This rarely interferes with my quality of customer service, but, if it's a busy game and there are a handful of Don't players and the roll is good, I'm not going to dampen my enthusiasm for the rest of the table to appease the Don'ts.

In response to the guy who said stickmen are just trying to sell something, yeah. That's the point (no craps pun intended). The dice table makes its money off people betting hardways, horn bets, C-and-E bets, hop bets and so on. The casino I work at doesn't sweat the money like a lot of other places, but they do make it clear what the stick person's job is.

As a general rule, though, I will say that if none of the players are toking, craps dealers would much prefer to be standing on a dead game and socializing.

True.
The casino makes its money from Center Bets and the crew makes its money from tokes which usually means Pass Line Action tokes. I've seen people walk away from the table when I start playing from the dark side. Dealers don't like potential tokers leaving the table. My first bet usually involves the Don't AND a toke bet beside it.

Some casinos foster an attitude of 'its us versus the players' whereas some casinos foster a more informative role for dealers towards newbies. Eons ago I heard a stiffed dealer loudly complain to a departing shooter "what do you think I'm standing here for". Of course I think that stiffed-dealer failed to realize he had an opportunity to explain the game more fully to the naive shooter and probably would have been more likely to receive a tip if he had done so.

There is definitely "Do" side bias with dealers. They make the majority of their tokes off of Do players when the dice are cooperating. If the dealers aren't totally terminally burnt out they are hoping for a hopping game...Don't players are kinda counter to that. Personally, when I dealt, I always tried to do right by the Don't bettors by keeping the rest of the table off their ass. They plays their money and takes their chances just like everyone else...
