Tips for craps dice control and precision shooter advantages

The next article related to player advantages is about dice control tips. The main concepts given here should help out precision dice throwers and better control of the dice while playing craps. Check out the article for all the tips and the more detailed explanations behind them.

One major tip is to find a table with a smaller crowd. The reason is that players will be less distracted and the shooter will be able to handle the dice more often. Although, you do not want to be the only person playing at a table because then all 4 dealers will have their attention exclusively on yourself! If this is the case, bring a few of your friends with. It is also good advice to network with other players and see if you can find other precision shooters at the table. That way you can make more money when you do not have control of the dice, of  course only if the shooter is actually skilled enough.

A few things to look for is softer padding under the felt on the craps table. This is actually better than a harder surface because the dice will not bounce or make erratic movements as much. Also, the softer felt will “grab” onto the dice more often. The key is to get the dice moving as little as possible to prevent any time for random movements. One way to tell if the padding is good or not is to throw the dice and hear if it makes a cracking noise. If it does, then this isn’t good and it indicates that the table may be too hard. You should not be able to hear hardly anything if the padding is soft, which is ideal.

The age of the felt matters as well. Older felt tends to work the best with the dice. If there is new felt, it may be best to wait a month or so it gets “warmed up” more. In contrast, newer dice are actually better because they have nice crisp and solid faces and the edges are straight an unbroken. You do not want worn out dice with broken corners.

A few other quick tips is to play on a shorter table which doesn’t require as much energy to throw the dice (less problems that can go wrong) and always use the backspin to counteract the pyramid bumps on the end of the table, which are designed to produce more randomness.
