I went through my dice setting and tossing routine, and there were 2 rolls where one die didn't touch the back wall. The pit boss says condescendingly, "I bet they've told you to hit the back wall before. Yeah, this isn't your first rodeo now, is it?"
I cashed out and left without tipping. Casino personnel can be quite jaded and unpleasant. Unless you are flinging the dice around, there are going to be rolls where *one* die doesn't hit the wall. I wanted to fire back a few unpleasantries and pull out my President-status Station's card and tell him that I'm going to go support your top competitor. Amongst other insults I had in mind.
One of these days I'm going to just intentionally lob the dice *just* barely beyond the 50 yard line and see what they do. If DI worked, there'd be somebody world famous for it (and not the products they try to sell). Let me have my fun.
Take his advice and do play at Stations.
They write up their craps crews for failure to tell the shooter to hit the back wall the very first time a die fails to reach it. I think the comment made was probably meant well and shoud have been appreciated. Else, stay out of a sweat the money joint because well... they sweat the money.
The crew has a job to do and at South Point they have to do it each and every time. They probably don't like it too much either. Nice large rooms, clean... pleasant... but don't be a 'sharpie' because they think they are pretty sharp too and they run a joint for ploppies.

Don't, not one snarky supervisor ever would care.
SouthPoint is famous for things like backing off BJ players who try to go from two red chips to a Green one or something like that. Do they still have wimpy odds at the craps table?
Yep. Only double odds. I should have known just from that that they are a sweat the money joint.
Actually, if you're going to play dice, then throw the dice appropriately, get into the game itself, and be done with it.
It isn't often I agree with Dan and I'm no defender of casinos, but the rules are the rules. Hit the wall and stop taking so f'n long to "set" the dice thinking you can actually control the outcome. There are others playing at the table that want the game to continue while you are wasting everyone's time with your nonsense.
