Depending on ease of use and viability, I think I can see these in every casino. Now, I don't think it'll completely replace the classic craps table, but I can see casinos carrying this to cut cost on labor. I have heard many times that there is always a shortage of dice dealers and the strip will hire them right out of dealer school instead of picking them up from break-in joints.

I can also see this working out on cruise ships. On ships, dealers are at a premium and ships are hesitant to open a craps game until later at night due to the number of dice dealers required to have a game going on. With this, it only requires one.

How are acrylic mirrors made?
Traditionally made from glass, mirrors can now be constructed using acrylic or polycarbonate materials. Made from a continually processed acrylic or polycarbonate sheet, mirrors are created using a process of vacuum metalizing, in which the sheet is given a mirror finish backed by a durable protective coating.

Mirror on the side of this craps table is described as an acrylic mirror. https://www.etsy.com/listing/151644205/12-casino-style-craps-table-custom-made?gpla=1&gao=1&&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_a-toys_and_games-sports_and_outdoor_games-other&utm_custom1=7bd5d3b8-f2a2-462c-be4c-b0744ff8d480&utm_content=go_304504235_22746246155_78727478195_pla-106555126115_c__151644205&gclid=CjwKCAjwwZrmBRA7EiwA4iMzBC7aKUhdtk5illYrDRpGSdQuCqDwcX--L7DL5gUtpKmJKAqNO-cn-RoCU0YQAvD_BwE

I saw a 60-something dealer at my local casino spending his first hours on the table during an "audit" of his skills. He had just spent at least 6 weeks (maybe 8 weeks) being trained. He wasn't taught enough. He could learn on the job with supervision from his current skill set. But this casino sometimes attracts customer riff-raff that nobody should put up with.

Craps player want to toss chips and call bets etc....



In the USA, that is definitely the case. And a big reason why the ShuffleMaster table failed. Another reason is crap is a public domain game, just like blackjack and roulette. I don't know what these companies charge for these tables, but not only do the customers not get to touch chips, the casino is now paying a monthly royalty on a public domain game, further lowering the appeal.

I would imagine this craps table is a minimum of $2,000 per month, likely a lot more. Just doesn't work in the USA market.

This product and the ShuffleMaster table are probably 5-7 years too soon in the USA.

If you don't have to pay two dealers, and can move the dice faster, you are actually still ahead... Until it breaks.
When I die, I want everyone who ever worked with me on a group project to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.
