This thread has gotten weird... haha... The word "Chinese" is a racial slur now??

But back on topic, I've seen smaller dice do that at that Pai Gow table, and they have similarly curved corners.

I'm convinced that I have run across one automated dice machine that was biased toward 7. I made a decent amount off of it before they pulled it from the floor.

actually at this point I think anyone continuing to bring up the Chinese thing is guilty of hijacking the thread. They can start another thread if they want to ... and I can block it which I will want to.

Magnets.....



...and weighted dice via magnets.....

again, i submit, it is not wise to play e craps.. whether the bubble craps or online or anything electronic. not trustworthy and not real.

i talked about how online electronic craps was not random in the past. Well, after a few years of staying off line, i decided to deposit a small $100 into an online account for sports wagering. even though im not sure if i would ever get paid, but the entertainment value and wanting to see what i could build it up to was worth it. so, i placed multiple teasers and parlays over the past few weeks. I built the 100 up to 2400. I didnt even go near the online casino... until yesterday.

now, i have preached that i believe the online casinos are a no win situation and i still believe it as there is no way in my opinion that they are random scenarios. so, i went to online craps. i played the dont pass for 1 dollar. no other bets. i did this for about an hour. i saw many box numbers. lots of rolls before the seven out or point made. then i went for my move. i put 25 on each box number ,150 across. First roll was a seven out. of course. I came right back with same bet. another 7 out right away. I figured, this cant happen over and over, i can get at least one number. so i did it again. 7 out right away. Granted, Im usually poised and in control without emotion... but this pissed me off... more so because I knew it and i was trying to prove something or other. after 5 point 7 out right way... i went back to 1 dollar on dont pass. and of course multiple box numbers ensued. Then I went back to 25 a number and 7 out right away.

I gave back 1000 of my sports winnings to the corrupt online casino. Never again. It is not random. Anyone who says it is... well they are lying. Sorry, I know there are sponsorship dollars here, but online casinos (other than sports wagering since they cant control that outcome) are manipulated and controlled.

So, now Im at 1400... I will try to see if I can get paid 1000 and ride out the remaining 400.

So yeah, I think it is possible for the die to have a small-ish flat surface worn into the "edge" over time.

The die has to be made of a soft-ish material, right ? I suspect the edge is not super sharp, cuz if it were, ENTROPY would come in to play and it wouldn't sit like that for long.



Dice are made of a hard plastic with a very low (essentially zero) modulus of elasticity. In other words, they do not deform. I would not expect them to change shape through abrasion - indeed I would expect them to crack and flake before they signficantly abrade, erode or "wear." So no flat surfaces "worn into the edge over time."

Then what are the odds of both dice landing on a corner?

You forgot about the Chinese Downhill in “Hot Dog The Movie”

Great pull with that reference. I haven't seen or quoted that movie in 25 year or so!!

That is a borderline “racist” comment. Enough said.

Can we please leave “Chinese” out of the discussion. Thanks.



The post is in reference to another series of posts made famous on another thread by ZK where he suspects that the cards that some strip casinos that are manufactured in China preshuffled are missing low cards to make him lose.

So we joke now that anything that seems unusual is due to Chinese cards, Chinese dice, or Chinese video poker machines. But this is more of a dig at ZK then a dig at the Chinese.
