Back in the day, we were pushed pretty hard to maximize the number of rolls per shift/week/month...you get it...Ideally ( from the house's opinion) to synchronize the arrival of the dice to the shooter slightly before the base dealers paid out their last couple of bets (no dice setting or fiddlin' around back then) with the dealers back out of the way (barely) when the dice came smokin' down the layout. The dice would stop rollin', the stick would make the call, and the process would begin again. At times the game pace and moves made were almost overwhelming. An hour long go 'round would fly by. You were too busy to look at your watch, practically. Personally, I'm glad we don't run things this way now, so much.
