If a player is on the Don't and the come out roll is a 12 you might hear, "We just paid the light bill." (This statement would only be said to the person on the don't, not to the table.)

I feel it is appropriate to add at this time that Stick Calls may indeed also be for entertainment purposes and that some fancy stuff can be added to give a busy dealer some more time so as to avoid 'running him over' by moving the dice too fast.

Some sticks will say 'came Easy, Bet it Hard'. Came easy is the important information, the Bet it Hard is an exhortation to the players to remind them of the availability of Center bets. And of course I'm sure you've all heard of the neophyte dealer who when asked by a player "which way did it come" replied "It came from down there (indicating the end of the table)".

Its nice to have some entertaining patter or to have a crew that asks the waitress for drinks (fat chance of their getting that on duty). Slow tables can be mean and a little banter can be fun.

... a little banter can be fun.


While center-bet related, but not stick banter, I had this happen once: I was on a long, LONG roll and pounding the hard-way bets (which I seldom play). Folks with $5 hard-way bets had press-&-take'd them to black chips and were screaming with excitement. Seems like every other roll was a hardway.

At one point I rolled a 9. The stickman, trying to be heard over the loud crowd, shouted, "NINE. PAY THE FIELD!" I snapped back with, "Was that a hard nine?" Broke up everyone. Two surprised beer drinkers had beer coming out of their noses from laughing with a mouth full of beer.

Aren't those the moments that make craps the great game it is?

I've heard, "Three, crap flea, Ace Deuce" more times than I can count.

Entertaining stickman calls are fine. But, for me, when the dice land at the far end, I can't hear the number because the stickman's head is turned in the direction of the dice. I understand the stickman needs to keep his/her eyes on the dice @ all times, but if I can't hear the number, I'm not knowing what's going on at my end of the table, mainly, whether my number hit or not. I've complained re: this, before & for a while my dealer will announce the number, but that doesn't last long. There's a lot of background noise in a casino, and, I do have hearing aids. Hearing the number rolled helps me keep in the game.

Not the stickman, but today I heard a craps dealer describe the Field bet as the "Craps buffet".

12 should be a lady's friend because it's always hard.

I like to practice playing craps on the app "Craps Trainer Pro". If sound is enabled, the imaginary stickman calls the rolls. This helps familiarization with the calls. However, there is one call that I am not familiar with. After the point is established, if a 6 or 8 (not the point) is rolled, there is a call that I can't determine is either "corner" or "quarter". I can't figure out what that means.

"6, (easy/hard) 6, no field, quarter/corner, comes go to 6"
"8, (easy/hard) 8, no field, quarter/corner, comes go to 8"
