Hey everybody,
i was at the new casino and was looking for a craps table, but they only had a electronic sitdown version with about 8 places to sit and the dice roll and tumble on a picture screen above you.
I was wondering if anyone has played this type of craps and if you can get a fair (roll) with RNG
thx,

Yeah, it's a fair roll.

That won't stop you from losing a ton if you get unlucky, like I did when a local casino had that game (since gone).

A RNG should be fair, but get used to it. Live dice games are banned in AZ.

Currently. I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up changing at some point time. After all, blackjack was banned at one point in time as well.

Does anyone know WHY dice games are banned? Is it harder to protect a dice game then a card game? I think roulette is also out.


PS: The same is true in California, but I never try to make sense of CA.

As far as I've been able to tell, it's just historical. There were laws on the books that prohibited games of chance, including games with dice, cards, etc.

As for California, the outcome of the allowed table games must be "card based". Slots are excepted by compact with tribal organizations.

Apparently "Please Don't Drive to Laughlin" didn't test-market well.

I was just in Laughlin over memorial day weekend, actually. What a strange crowd.
