Hi all, got a quick question. For my new craps variation, I need a simple electronic sign (maybe a 6" or 7" display?) to keep track of the number of rolls. It doesn't need to be anything elaborate, just a simple sign that displays the number "1", "2", "3", or "4" at the push of a button.

Does anyone have any suggestions about what company I should go to for something like this?

Thanks in advance!

For a demo, I'd look at a digital photo frame. There may be a button on the back to change the image displayed.

Load a bunch of images... 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. Push the button to change the display.

Making 1 for a demo is a very different problem than making a hundred or a thousand for production and release.

Otherwise, for a demo, a flip-book would work, too.
May the cards fall in your favor.

Thank you for the suggestion. I like it!
It's funny how the simplest suggestions are often the best! =)

I saw this counter at the Freemont in Downtown Las Vegas

I would think they could tell you where it comes from
I think it was on all of their table too

The photo frame idea sounds nice too
but would it pass gaming regulations

That is brilliant.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

I'm surprised nobody has come up with a bet predicated only upon for how many rolls a shooter holds the dice. It would almost run similar to the regular game of Craps in that you could have Do's and Dont's in the form of a LESS THAN x bet and a MORE THAN x bet. Potential for large payouts, huge House Edge, but people would play it, I think.

I think what you mean is a Accumulator of some sort.
You don't want to have someone have to read the sign then punch in a higher number.
You wan't one person who can zero the sign and simply punch a button to add one.
