Craps Players, BEWARE! Today’s Monday Link could be considered controversial by die-hard craps players BELieving in “dice control.”
Dice control in casino craps is a controversial theory where proponents claim that individuals can learn to carefully toss the dice so as to influence the outcome. A small but dedicated community of dice shooters claim proof of dice influencing in casino conditions. Many within the advantage gambling community still doubt if dice control can overcome the house advantage on craps. The concept of “controlled shooting” goes beyond simply “setting the dice” prior to shooting. It purports to involve limiting the rotational characteristics of the dice. The theory is that if the dice are properly gripped and tossed at the correct angle they will land just before the back wall of the craps table, then gently touch the wall, greatly increasing the probability of their remaining on the same axis. If executed properly and consistently this technique would be able to change the game’s long-term odds from the house’s favor to the player’s favor.
However, an article from John Nelson in participation with the website CrapsPit.org believes differently and rather intensely. See what you think…….
