|Visit Vegas a couple of times and you might see
this guy: a Craps high roller. He might not have mountains of chips in front of him or a
hot woman on each arm like in the movies, but hes making enough money to make casino
owners check the dice regularly.
And when you see
him you must be thinking how is he doing it? Is it dumb luck? Does he have
some kind of foolproof strategy you dont know about? Or maybe hes risking a
lot to make a lot?
Or he could just know how to control the dice like a Jedi
There has been talk in casino circles about Craps players
who can avoid seven on the Point Roll consistently. Bypassing luck and making
cash on pure hand-eye coordination. Whats their technique (besides using the Force
of course)? Weve got the scoop.
The first thing you need to know is that these techniques
will not guarantee the exact result you want every time. If that were possible youd
see us in Vegas 24/7. However, if done properly, these techniques can improve your chances
of getting the numbers you want or avoiding the numbers you dont want.
First thing you want to do is make sure the dice are in a
consistent position. One popular method is holding the dice in a 3-V set where you have
threes in a V formation. This gives you the hard six (3 and 3) on top, a six
(5 and 1) on the front, an eight (6 and 2) on the back and a hard eight (4 and 4) on the
bottom. No sevens will be showing if you hold the dice this way.
Once your dice are set you need to practice so you are
throwing the dice the same way each time. Make sure your toss has a smooth delivery that
is strong enough to get the dice to the end of the table without so much force that it
causes them to bounce hard against the back of the table. A smooth throw will cause the
dice to rotate backwards without moving side to side, thus improving your chances of
avoiding seven if youre using the V formation. Throwing the same way can
also produce repeating numbers.
Youre not going to get a throwing technique down the
first time through. And you dont want to use trial and error on a Vegas table;
youll lose your shirt that way. We suggest buying your own dice and working on your
throwing technique wherever possible.
