Are we as dice setting advantage players good for the game of craps and the casinos in general? I think we are. More and more people are being exposed to craps in many ways. The dice seminars are attracting people who are just about willing to pay anything to learn the game as we play it.
If this were not true, then why are monthly income percentage comparisons at the craps tables higher than other table games and slots? The economy is throwing things out of sync but still there is the demand to learn more about the game. The interest in craps has picked up do to the fact that there are vehicles out there to increase one’s knowledge like seminars, web sites, individual instructors and more books.
In the past the only way you could learn how to play craps was to read a book or watch someone else play. Books never tell you the whole story. I know, I wrote three of them. As soon as I published one, I would discover something I left out or new concepts would come to light. Casino’s sometimes stage lessons on the basics of craps but nothing of substance like you find here on the Dice Institute web site.
More and more people are being exposed to craps everyday because of us. They watch us play and often ask us where we learned how to shoot like that. They try to copy our play and watch us set the dice. So they set the dice because they think that’s what you have to do or they are just trying to look like they know what their doing.
We tend to draw more players to the table when they see us roll. These players will sit on the side lines or follow us around to see what table we will play at. Players will stay at a table longer than they should, just to be there when it is our turn to roll. We defiantly draw a crowd when we get hot. Players will bet more on our rolls.
Some casinos realize when we are at the table the crew is going to make plenty of tokes. We tend to keep players at the table longer. Yes, I would say we are good for the casinos. We are doing their job promoting the game. We are the only one’s promoting the game, teaching the game and making people aware of the pro’s and con’s of the game. It’s too bad all the casinos don’t realize what an asset we are to the game.
