That means that the casinos thought these guys could somehow manipulate the dice?

I was playing at one of the lower end casinos downtown Vegas once at their limit - five hundred - and was accused just because I won a few in a row. They didn't do anything to me, just the pit boss shouted at me to "stop setting the dice!" It was nonsense I was just throwing winners - at best - telekinesis. 😃
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people.

You were asking about someone busting their rail while the shooter continued his roll.



You're splitting hairs.

If the player places all of his chips into his rail, and then onto the felt, he has busted his rail without difficulty.

If another player enters the game with a few chips, makes his line bet but holds a couple chips back in his rail, then tosses the remaining chips on the field after the come-out roll and loses the field bet, he has also busted his rail without difficulty.

How much can they then buy in for, so that they can continue to bet during the remainder of the shooter's pass, without being accused of displaying poor etiquette?

As long as it doesn't delay the game and the shooter.



Is there a threshold amount whereby betting above that amount would delay the game and the shooter beyond the limits of proper etiquette?

For instance...how many bills would be too much of a delay?

I feel like I'm pushing it if I ask for more than 10-20 chips.

What they really don't want to do is do a partial color-up. Say I've got 40 reds in my rail, they'd rather I put them down as bets than ask them for greens.

Think back to the last time you played craps. Did your dealer have to clear it with the boxman for $100? Did he have to clear it for $200?

Somebody has to punch-in your buy-in amount into the Player's Club computer at the box.

BTW, Australia is going cashless. How do you buy-in when everybody is losing their credit cards due to the pandemic?

[At the casino
If you're planning a trip to Sin City or any other casino-hub, you should know that you can't use your credit card directly to buy chips or play slots. In most states, casinos require cash or check to buy-in, and will send players to the ATM machine or cashier's cage in order to play. Sep 23, 2019]

Australia is also looking to make checks obsolete. Really. One bank posted a note saying they won't take deposits above $7500 in cash after July 1st (a month ago), and they won't take any cash deposits after the end of August (this month), and they won't take any checks after the end of this year.

Yes to both amounts. It seems to depend on the denomination of the bills.

Is it poor etiquette to buy in for more chips if you need them to make additional bets during a shooter's pass?

I think it depends on the pace of the game. If the other side of the table is busy paying off prop bets and your dealer is done paying off a few numbers bets, you could ask for more chips, but not a full buy-in amount like 50 chips or more.

I don't understand why the number of chips is a factor, $6K in cash can be exchanged for 2 chips.

Ha-Ha. He could have gotten a 10 purple chips & 10 black chips too. But that goes to the other end of the spectrum from having 5 or 10 twenty dollar bills on the table to having 60 one hundred dollar bills. Most people would be drawing from their LOC or front money instead of a big wad of small bills like that.

Actually you would most likely be given two black chips.
