    I was playing next to a guy who thinks the pit boss controls the outcome of the dice on their computer screen where they input the players information. Every time the pit boss would walk over to the table he would turn off his bets. anyone else experience this?

    I've seen players turn off place bets after dice bounce off the table, at stick change, while getting waiter service, when a crap number shows, when a certain number shows, after X number of tosses, and more. Some even leave the table and hide out in the restroom when a seven shows. The list goes on and on. There's probably as many reasons to turn 'em off or take down odds bets as there are players.

    777 has brought up when to call his bets off.

    If I remember correctly, and this hardly ever seems to be the case anymore :confused:, he starts on the Come, converts to place as his Comes come back, spreads across, takes a number of hits, with pressing if they are all repeating,...................................................

    then calls all bets off just before the 7 shows. :)

    Could be something to it, and I could give you a pretty long list of reasons why I say that. In any case, dice being what they are, and knowing what we know, turning off all bets possible, when the next outcome is not known, would ALWAYS be your best play, money wise, whether anybody is standing at the "DICE-CONTROLER" or not. :D

    In all seriousness, there IS something to what that guy was saying. He doesn't have it exactly right though. The pit guy, does not control the dice, but rather, just identifies the "target". Beyond that, the pit guy "knows" nothing. The "rest" is under the control of mechanisms, you've never heard of, and most never will. Even the pit doesn't know how it's done. :cool:

    a mix of jest....

    Pit boss wouldn't be assigned that job. He's basically walking from table to table just keeping an eye on generalities. If there was someone triggering a 7 out or something akin to that....it would be the boxman, who actually has himself involved in game specifics (knows who is betting what numbers, how much, do/don't)....and when to trigger a loss, etc.

    This would more than likely be done with a foot tap button embedded in his shoe, after he calculated what to do. Boxmen interviews always involve a short math test of being able to calculate several bets, payoffs and what outcome favors the casino.

    With today's computer systems....you wouldn't have to be that overt. They could set the camera system, tied into the computer and software system that quickly calculates best number for the house....electronic signal is sent lickity split to the underlayment computer chips or magnet or whatever trickery is designed into the system...voila. 7 out.

    Hopefully your guy is just superstitious....where there is no issue with what he's doing shutting down bets. If he blames losses on cheats....then problem.

    No, not at all. :cool: You? :)
    I can't believe you would make light of a great conspiracy theory like this. What did you do, "get religion or something? :confused: Just for this, I'm not going to debunk, any more of your theories for you. :cool:

    I'd really like to "run-down" some of the very humorous, "incidents" involving that little box, but I don't want to identify myself. What I CAN tell you is, it's not there for the players benefit. :cool:

    It may be time for the Duck to consider a career change instead of being so bitter. When life deals you lemons, make lemonade. Casinos pretty much everywhere are cutting table game dealers because of lower traffic, new technology and higher labor costs, to name a few.

    The local NA casino pit looks like ghost town compared to 10 years ago and now another area casino only opens their second craps table on Friday and Saturday night. They used to open it every night at 6pm or so. It saves them 5 bodies since they have a box person or well over $1000 a shift in labor savings. Horseshoe Council Bluffs is down to 4 tables now. At one time they had 8.

    The vast majority of gamblers just play something else if they can't get on the craps table.

    Busy? :confused: This almost sounds like some kind of "WORK". A guy should never let a GD JOB! stand between him and his gambling "career". :D Right TD?
