When Casinos reopen what will be different at the Craps table? BJ and other card game dealers will probably wear masks for a while. I was at Mohegan Sun when they shut down. They turned off every other slot machine to separate people a day before shutting down. What could be done to be safe at a Craps table? Thank you.

Facial recognition is screwed because asking someone to take a mask off is counterproductive

You can't wear a hat, they frown on hoodies, and now you're required to wear a mask, and then pick up and toss dice that are passed to the next guy when you're done?

I always thought the no-hat rule was just a way to exhibit the power folks with a mall cop mentality thought they had over people. Now.... no hats, but masks.

Look for brawls to break out in the bars when one of the drunks sneezes.

Although, will there be bars and clubs anymore?

Will all these casinos last until 2022 while closed? They can't be sold, there's no market.

I'm guessing that blowing on the dice will now be frowned upon.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

No more blowing on the dice, brings me back to the last night we were open.
I'm a dealer at a midwest casino and we were shutting down about 1am on March 15. Last shooter was called by the box man.
This is the first time dude has shot that night at the table, previously he had passed. Takes him about 2 minutes to pick his bones, then with each and every single shot, he proceeds to bring them within about half inch of his mouth and give a nice kiss and blow to them.
His roll lasts about 20 maybe 25 rolls, and makes his sharpshooter bet of 3 points. Everyone colors up and bails, box brings up the lid then scoots over to the desk and grabs the spray sanitizer. He then drowns the dice in the stuff as we close up the game. I think he even gave a quick shot in the pick up bag before he sealed them up.
Now im not a germaphobe, nor paranoid. I spent Four in The Corps, and 30 more in the restaurant business before joining the dark side and becoming a casino dealer. Ive been shot up with more anti something vaccines than I care to count, had my fair share of Hep shots, tetanus shots and more. But wouldn't you think that the general public and normal humans would not lick the damn dice if they were closing the casino you were playing in because of a world wide viral pandemic spread by oral secretions among other things????

Just wondering....

Haha....That's normal!

I wash my hands before and right after every session at a Craps table or slot machines. I did this long before this pandemic.

Most people cough and don' t cover. I was watching a poker game and a player coughs and covers thinking he did the right thing. Trouble is he coughed into his hand and then handles his cards and chips! The line for the Buffet is a mile long yet no one in the restroom washing hands. I see people walking around with face masks not covering their nose.

Hopefully most people will learn from this and be more considerate and hygienic. The others, I think its called "thinning the heard".

Be safe. Thanks

I honestly don't think a mask will matter, think the software likes to focus around the upper cheeks very much between eyes and ears, though the rest of the face makes things easier to detect.
