Can you summarize for those of us who are hesitant to follow unknown links and who can't download pdf files?

you actually "tap" the dice and they magically become fair, or unfair. from what i can tell, some of them contain a fluid but the ones i sent into the pdf apparently do not contain fluid which is the products main claim to fame.

the pdf i sent is from a company who started in 1890 and eventually dissolved in 1956.

The company H. C. Evans, which was the company, seems to have also made alot of coin operated stuff, but the most interesting, and related to this forum topic, is that they made electomagnetic dice, along with an electromagnetic repelling and attracting device which worked with see through plastic dice which contain a small amount of metal in them i think.

not doing anything at all just thought it was an intersting topic. im reading a catalog from the 1930s which is from a games manufacturing company, which sold what me might consider gaffed equipment. craps just doesnt have any allure to me... just yet at least maybe that will change.

as i have stated before im more interested in the security aspect of most games and i like to keep my mind wandering and others minds on edge about what can and cant be accomplished by the human race when it comes to games of chance. Dice settng in my opinion goes against what i consider to be fair, and would allow anyone to gain an advantage over the house. although the house has been trying to thwart craps players for a while from what im reading.

Define "fair" and "unfair" The dice dont know how to play the game.

Well, from what ive been seeing it seems that certain unfair dice are weighted to favor specific sides sometimes. and from that im going to say fair dice have no preferred or side which comes up more frequently than others.

Those dice are called ‘Tappers’. The interiors contain oil and a drop of mercury in a dumbell shaped channel. When the mercury is in the center cavity, the dice are fair. When the shooter wants the best of it, he taps the surface ‘for luck’. This jars the mercury to the corner of the die and allows the shooter to throw a set of loads.

This and much more is described in “Scarne on Dice”, which is a 500 page textbook on everything dice. He includes a large section on avoiding cheats.

Scarne also describes in detail, a number of crooked dice shots, such as, the lock grip, the blanket roll, the backboard control shot, the whip shot, the Greek shot, the spin shot.

Many of these shots were developed by soldiers in WW1 an WW2, who filled suitcases with cash using them against unsuspecting fellow soldiers.

For the spin shot, the shooter gives the dice a fair shake, then glimpses at the numbers facing him when his palm is up. If he’s placing numbers and looking to avoid a seven, he makes sure the numbers on the opposite sides don’t add up to seven. If he’s looking at a five and a four, he knows the opposite numbers are two and three. Those will be the skyward numbers.

Then, palm facing down, he slides the dice across the surface, but gives them a spin so they circle each other, but never turn over. The three and two remain skyward for a five.

A shooter used this shot effectively at Foxwoods for a few rolls. The PB spotted it, and he was warned ‘do it again and you’re out of here in cuffs'.
