    Well, the grooves are probably not illegal, but they do indicate a fear of "DI types", but they do NOT attest to the existence of DIs, just a fear of. :)

    This is Barney,

    The LID tells me the Four Queens have got rid of the table of craps with the grooves last year when they bought a most wonderful table of the craps from some nice young gentleman living out of his car.

    That TDVegas is DEAD WRONG, as usual!!!

    Could be, he gets a stipend from the Four Queens???

    You can verify the Four Queens Antics on their CRAPS Tables, yourself, here's how!

    1) Enter the Four Queens Las Vegas, go to their CRAPS TABLES.

    2) Visually observe the Felt on the ""Last Foot of their Tables, just before the Pyramids"". You should be able to visually see the ripple impression on the felt. If you cannot, they have changed out the Felt recently, which they do frequently, due to the GROOVES in Their Table Surface forming a pattern on the felt.

    3) For TOTAL VERIFICATION, simply lightly run your finger (on the felt) from the Pyramids out, towards the shoot from area & parallel to the table length. You will FEEL the GROOVES!

    4) Yes, the above is 100% Verification, unlike the BS that the nay-swayers post here!

    You sure know a lot about the 4 Queens for someone who claims to live thousands of miles from Vegas.

    The grooves can be an advantage to someone who has a good toss. All you have to do is keep your dice on axis and the same rev rate:)

    Depends on what you mean by random.....

    If you are saying the shooter has no impact on the number orientation
    of the numbers hit...….that is 100% false....I have conducted thousands of
    rolls to see that and posted many posts here with the results.

    Now if by random you mean your not going to change the appearance of the
    7... that is completely different. It is easy to change the appearance of a certain
    type of seven like 1/6 6/1...…..but if all you do is exchange that with an equal
    or higher amount of 3/4 or 5,2 it has not helped you move past random results

    I'll take a look....very soon. I have no idea if there are grooves underneath the felt....but will do some checking. We've been hearing this line for a while now. Only way to confirm is to send someone down there. You say "100% YES"? OK. You better be damn sure. ;)

    I've done these little "checks" before when claims about "no setting allowed"....."red and green dice on certain tables" and other questionable claims have been made about certain casinos.....

    So far I'm 4 for 4 in proving people dead wrong. I'm not saying you are dead wrong....but, I will find out. No bullshit either.

    Are you sure about the grooves??

    I'm a "DON'T" player, so what can I do to seven out faster? :)

    I have played at the Queens many times, done ok there, but you damn well
    better hit the back wall and if you throw like I do it cant be from table end
    because the shot is never high enough for them...

    Knock, knock... anyone upstairs?

    Slate under a Craps Cloth? There is already two inches of glued plywood below the cloth to hold the table together. Why not 'groove' the plywood that is already there?

    You would not only need a strong pad beneath the layout, but stretch it so tight that a die would bounce like hitting a drum skin.

    Don't play at the Queens. I was there back in the 1980's and being off the Strip was a nice place to be then, and today.

    Play the Don't Pass game. If you believe the table is biased towards... losing as a Pass Line game.

    There is no general rule that one must be a Right Bettor to make 'friends' at a Craps Table. The House tends to make money at their Craps Tables. Think about that the Casino still makes money after all the chips you have said to have removed into your vault in your room.

    If the Casino can make money paying all of the Front Line Players, year after year... follow the Smart Money. They do not need to Groove the Base Board under the Cloth, use Biased Dice (for what is beyond me) and only require that at least one die hits the backboard.

    Dumb players make excuses. Smart players understand why they won or lost and make the changes necessary to improve their game.

    If you have a hard time fondling the dice to make a choice, take your mother along and let her make your decisions. Someday you will figure it out... that it does not matter which dice you choose. There are still 36 outcomes expected at random.

    you said...….If the Casino can make money paying all of the Front Line Players, year after year... follow the Smart Money. They do not need to Groove the Base Board under the Cloth, use Biased Dice (for what is beyond me) and only require that at least one die hits the backboard.

    Then why do they have bumper strips, grooves and keep on making the back wall bouncier
    and with much larger pyramids. Why do they continue to indicate that you hit the back wall harder and
    harder and harder and keep telling some players to get more air under the dice. Why do many casino
    properties with a bubble craps machine which displays the last 20 rolls not allow you to chart the
    real table.

    Whether you like it or not, many casinos still sweat everything at a craps table....now players
    learn and play other places.... but the question remains, if nothing matters...…...then why does
    everything matter??????

    Huh? I thought Hardley lives in Vegas, in his truck. Just more fake news, I suppose.

    LOL....

    That’s an adobe style house with the best view and location in Calico Basin. Nice lit tennis court in the back too.

    Calico Basin is about 10 minutes from Red Rock casino. Highly recommended for visitors as it’s not far from the action. Awesome trails, petroglyphs...

    Lot of rock climbers today.

    Is that house on private property or is that park land?
