Frankly, stacked dice is so rare, that if anyone asked for a brief pause to get a picture, that it would probably be allowed without question.

One more thing. I did not intend to stack the dice. I was as surprised and amazed as anyone else.

That痴 comedy gold right there. I doubt even hard core dice setters would think that anyone could intentionally get the dice to land atop one another.

This is probably a dumb question, but I don't really play craps. Does that count as a valid roll? Or is it voided?

(A quick google search gave conflicting results making me even more curious).



Saw it happen 10 years ago at Harrahs Joliet. Box called no roll as if it were an every day occurence.

No. But I've seen a player throw a chip to the stickman for a hardway bet and the chip hit a die in the air.

No, but I have seen one land on the digital limit sign.

Well it happened again today at Red Rock. I sent a photo to Wizard and I hope he posts it. The table crew allowed three of us at the table to take photos.

I知 not skeptical that it can happen. But I need to see actual video if the claim is that it is happening often. Because that痴 makes it a much greater probability than I would imagine.

Doesn稚 the landing have to be very delicate to neither bounce or slide off the bottom die?

By the way Red Rock stopped cleaning their dice with disinfectants which at times made their dice sticky.

It happened yesterday at table #2 at Red Rock at 12:22pm which is the time stamp on my photo.

The base dealer was Jack. The dice came to rest right in front of him behind his stacks of $1, $5, and $25 chips.

Wizard why dont YOU call Red Rock and ask them for the eye in the sky recording? If I do it I am sure I'll be challenged.

You do it, Wizard. Under normal circumstances tapes are maintained for only three days to a week.

Thanks for getting those pictures, Alan! I actually did this once as the shooter many moons ago in Reno. I don't recall exactly which casino -- we were staying at the Hilton (now GSR), but also gambled at some of the downtown casinos that day.

As I recall, they actually counted the roll -- the dealer lifted the top die and placed it on the felt, revealing the result of the bottom die. I don't remember what it was, exactly, but it was neither the point nor a seven. I remember thinking that it was an odd occurrence, but didn't realize exactly how rare it was at the time. In the 25 or so years of playing craps since, I have yet to see it happen again.

It also reminded me of Pass the Pigs, a party game I would play with friends and family. The game consisted of rolling two pig-shaped dice, and scoring points based on the orientation in which they landed. One of the rules was if the two pig-dice landed with one on top of and completely supported by the other, (which the rules stated was 'impossible') you are summarily thrown out of the game. I remember feeling fortunate that the casino did not employ this rule!

Another thing I remember about this session is that it was a $2 table, and during my turn as shooter, someone at the other end of the table placed a $1,000 pass line bet! Sorry to say, that roll ended with a 7-out.
