Hate to bump this, but I was thinking of this game again for some reason and realized I never mentioned the table itself. It's a decent bit smaller than a standard craps table and it has a hard flat surface, not felt at all. When I played, I could "finesse" the dice and get a high number with a soft throw. Someone mentioned earlier in the thread about a person hypothetically being able to roll high numbers consistently. Seems a lot more possible for Beat The Dealer than with craps. I haven't been in upstate NY for awhile anyways, but it looks like they still have the game.

Flash from the past! Was at Turning Stone last night as they opened the Beat The Dealer table. It was right next to a craps table I was watching. I new it was a bad bet but had never seen it played. Then I saw the house edge on Wizard!!! When I saw that it was just slightly less of a house edge than the Big 6 Wheel I had to chuckle.

But it seemed to be getting a lot of players. It appeared that most people thought it was like craps but without all the thinking! I'll stick to craps.
