Did most houses prohibit dice players from wearing hats? Did that same prohibition apply elsewhere in casinos?

I think facial recognition is more about the eyes, and separation. Wearing masks to cover nose and mouth has never been a problem. Hoodies and covering the eyes had always been an issue.

That's where the computer pads for each player come in. No calling out bets. No chips.

That would be Aruze Gaming Roll to win Craps. To date...Iíve only heard of 3 tables installed nationwide.

Itís a nice idea....but the industry would have a LONG transition to no chip gaming.

I can't imagine playing craps without cheques. I probably wouldn't play anymore.

Though in the end, I'm not too worried about it. I suspect the response of most casinos will be limited to hand sanitizer dispensers near the tables.

Hello all, long time lurker, first time poster.

I played this game a few times at Four Winds in New Buffalo, MI before the casinos shut down, and didnít care for it. The first time I had to walk away because I couldnít get my bets in before time ran out. Iím over 6í tall and the console is in an awkward place for tall people.

After I got the hang of betting I played a couple more times. I didnít like how the dice bounced on the hard surface, no chips, and lack of rapport with the dealers. This table was $5 min bet, while the regular tables were $15 min bet. That was the only reason I went back.

I'm not sure what is going to happen on the casino floor as it relates to this virus....other than its pretty clear that the risk for contagion or transfer thru chips, cash, dice, cards, smoke, etc is going to put casinos in the crosshairs.

Hopefully Vegas doesn't have an outbreak that breaks the back....but I suspect gamblers who were used to the old way of a floor running operations might want to prepare themselves for changes...whatever that might be.

I suspect some fairly large inconveniences coming down the casino pike.

I have not played this version of craps...but would definitely give it a try. If the dice bounce less or the potential for sliding is there because of a harder surface....as a player, bring it on! That means there's a chance to observe non random outcomes.

I'll sacrifice all....including dealer rapport, chips or anything else if it means these tables can generate non random outcomes.

The more news I see, day by day, gives me the feeling that casinos are less and less likely to reopen.

Today's news was that MGM has postponed reopening until at least May 22.

And with these two week patterns that they're looking for it appears more likely casinos won't reopen till July.

Then if casinos only start to reopen in July who is to say that craps tables would reopen right away?

Realistically I expect the first gambling to start will be machines which are the easiest to clean, operate and monitor with the fewest number of employees.

Remember when a casino needs to open for one day to maintain their license they don't open a craps table or a blackjack table... they open a few slots in a trailer.

If they are seriously holding to this 14 day deal...I don't see any chance for a long time.

These opening dates have zero relevance....the 14 day trend is what is driving everything. Unless they change the parameters, May 15, May 22 isn't happening.
