Some casino don't have any problem with it if it doesn't drag on. This is reasonable. It has no effect from just about all shooters. Casinos need to worry about real threats, not false threats.

I can't believe you did that. You should have chanted the usual incantation and spun in a counterclockwise direction 4 times. How DARE you!

Casinos frown on slowing the game down. One player would spend a full minute setting the dice and ended up flinging them anyway. Frustrating for everyone, but because he's tipping and playing with larger sums of money they let it slide. That's the thing -- you can get away with alot through tipping and bet size.

Absolutely worthless.

But it is a good idea to tip the crew even if you are just a random shooter. Good people.

It's been a few months since I've played at Tulalip, but I have never had any issues with setting the dice. If anything, I have more recently seen bored dealers and pit bosses just biding their time until the end of their shift.

They have enough tables that they usually have one too many, and the empty ones don't get any heat.

That's usually what I've encountered also.

I play craps at Tulalip all the time, and noticed that the other day and was wondering the same thing myself.....Its not a bad place to play, the only thing that pisses me off about the place is they never open the second table no matter how crowded it gets...which is annoying.....It's just better to drive another 20 min and play at the Angel of the Winds, better limits anyways... plus the craps table is to dam close to the center bar which mean like 20 people are "hovering" over you watching the game...which is also annoying

Have you been there on a Friday night? They have ALL the craps tables open.

Haven't made my way to AOTW yet. I live east of Seattle. Going to have to check it out!

Ive played at many of the major Strip casinos -- Bellagio, Caesars, MGM, NYNY, Paris, Ballys, Flamingo... and in more than 15 years Ive never heard any criticism about a shooter delaying the game... for dice setting, for ordering drinks, for kissing girl friends, for yelling over to friends at blackjack, nothing.... I was even at a table where they held up the game so the shooter could go to the restroom.

Yeah, it all depends on the situation. There was a drunk guy last time I was out at the tables, and he was the shooter, rolled a point, and than walked 10 feet away from the table to talk to some friends "for a minute". lol. Didn't bother me, was just funny to see some guy that is completely oblivious.

Just gotta roll with it, and it is in the casino's best interest to roll with it too, people that delay things are just part of life. Just sit back and laugh at them. At least that's my take on it.
