Big Foot, Chupacabra, and the Boogeyman do exist,as does Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and The tooth Ferry.
I've seen them all behind a dozen or so cocktails at Ellis Island.
That having been said, Even the Wizard said there's something to it. Let the Force be With you Luke Skywalker.

There is some unseen mythicalogical power of collective suggestion that dictates the electromagnetic pulsation of the universe, and it can make those dice come up on your number. Believe it.

So if you truly believe, it will happen.

Write it down, and a journal if you will and have a plan, and repeat over and over,
The Dice Are Mine!
The Dice Are Mine!

7 out.
This town is a lonely town Not the only town like-a this town This town is a make-you town Or a break-you-town and bring-you-down town This town is a quiet town Or a riot town like this town This town is a love-you town And a shove-you-down and push-you-'round town

When did I say that?

I think what you wrote in expectations for the dice setter suggests there is something to it. Not sure if that’s exactly what you meant, but that was also my takeaway.

This part:

“Personally, I'm still skeptical. I don't rule out the possibility, but I'm not convinced. Most casinos happily allow it. If I ran a casino, I would allow it too, because I think the number of people who can influence the dice (if any) is far outweighed by the number who think they can, but can't. Still some people I respect do believe in it, mainly Stanford Wong, who trained under Golden Touch Craps.”

I guess it’s also important to keep in mind that the context is an article describing the math for dice setting under the assumption that there is “something to it”.

None of that means I said there was "something to it." I only made that page about dice setting odds because Wong's book caused quite a stir but nobody had really answered the question of how dice setting works, if indeed it does. Since I can't disprove dice setting doesn't work, I'm not going to totally rule it out. However, after at least ten years of this topic being debated, I've yet to see any convincing evidence there is anything to it other than a way of selling books and lessons about it.

Dice setting seems to have a lot in common with the concept of, “God,” doesn’t it?

I heard it works if you're at the table on a unicycle. 🙃

Well there you have it. The Wizard says that dice control may be real and has not ruled it out as a possibility.




















Or might not be real.

No it doesn't IMHO. If you really really need "God", he's there for you. If you really really need an eight to come up on the die it's only there five out of thirty six times over the long run. Many have asked "God" to give them an eight or four etc., but they are just praying for it. Not really asking "God". The difference between prayer and asking "God" could be explained here but I'll leave that up to the individual and of course, "God" himself.

ps: Selling of a "course" in dice setting might get confused with people asking for money using "God", but please don't let that confuse the real issue. Thanks and God Bless You.
