There is a crawl space underneath all the bubble craps. Go during shift change and you will see exactly whats going on and how they work. There is a midget (not a magnet)hiding under there who shakes and pops the dice up. Sometimes it's a well-trained monkey instead.

We're halfway there.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plastic_magnet

But how to generate a decent localized magnetic field at the other end of the table?



Generating a localized magnetic field that could pulse on and off at the end of a casino table would be child's play (for the casino.). Its the same technology as an electric motor.

However, the plastics with magnetic properties that are cited in the Wiki article are flexible and deformable - not appropriate properties for casino dice.

You would need to find a formulation of the plastic that would allow it to be injection molded into the die form and that would harden with heat (and/or with time, if you used a hardening agent). And, even if you accomplished that, the entire die would then have "magnetic susceptibility" -which is not what you want if you want to control which side the die will land on.

To second this I know of a non-indian casino in the US (so real state regulation) that was caught short decking it's blackjack games (by removing 10's and A's) and they were simply fined and not a lot of publicity came from it. Who knows how long they were doing it...



This would have definitely made some news. Do you have a link?

"Mid-West"



Ok to narrow here....So actual Midwest geographically (like Colorado), Midwest like middle America (IA, MO), or Midwest that’s in the eastern time zone that for no reason no whatsoever people call Midwest (MI, OH, etc)?

Also, you forgot air quotes around “real state regulation.”

Magnets? At a real craps casino a Floorman will occasionally walk around the table carrying a cheap compass. If North suddenly changes position he knows that the guy in a wheel chair has a magnetic coil of some sort.
Whether they test the bubble craps from time to time I don't know but it would have to be a really powerful magnet and that means it would be a big one. Frankly, I doubt it would even work.

Heard Souring Eagle.

It was a Michigan casino. In the early 2000's, if I remember. You'd have to contact the tv stations in Detroit to see if they have a record of the story.
Never make a bet that you wouldn't take, yourself.

It would be nice if there was an internet page that maintained a database of all the instances in which casinos have been caught (by regulatory agencies) cheating the customers.
