. OK, I didn't see this with my own eyes, but, got it from an absolutely impeccable source. A good friend of mine "Sparks" was at Harrah's Cherokee, this weekend, and saw some very "interesting" goings on. He said, that the Aruze throw to win game, the one that is like the regular game, except the betting is on touchscreen, had now been altered. The table surface had the mesh removed, they said because it had a tear in it. Instead of a rough but slick surface, it was now a very smooth but somewhat tacky, surface. Also added to the surface running latitudinal, were three or four "ribs" about 1/4 of an inch high, apparently to prevent "sliders". OK, now for the kicker, the "DICE" which looked just like the regular table dice before, were now, Opaque? That's right, he said held one up to the light and could see nothing through the dice, not at all like the "normal" translucent ones we're all used to seeing. He said he brought this observation to the attention of the dealer, and the pit, and asked them WTF? He also said that the dice coming to him were cold as hell, but after complaining to the pit, about the opaque nature of the dice, and why are they, he got no explanation at all, but the pit guy scurried away, and got on the phone to somebody. Well, conveniently enough, he said, he hit about 8 or 9 pass line winners in a row, and then got the hell out of that game, a little ahead, when he 7'd out. Now I ask anybody, to try to explained to me, what would be the logical purpose, to introduce "OPAQUE DICE" to a game, where traditionally, and for a very good reason, the dice are ALWAYS translucent. Go ahead, give me your best shot.
