    Hello. I played craps for the first time Friday. All because my supervisor said he can play and what not . I like to do a little home work and went to YouTube. Well I watched alot on dice setting strategys also seen the BBC doc of the dominator . so we went and I made $92 profit and he made $ 50 profit. I think me and him shot pretty good . pluse there was another crap player that thought me a few things and he shot pretty good. What does everyone think of dice control. Also I wanna build a bankroll up I'm starting at a low amount 100 bux think it's possible to build a decent bankroll off that?

    To answer your questions.

    1. I don't think DI works.

    2. Your 100 dollars will be against the 200,000 dollars opposite the mirror. And the casino ( this means 'little house' in Italian ) can bring in millions more against your 100 dollars. Craps is a difficult game to win at. You need to figure out the best way to play under the conditions you describe. Good luck to you.

    This board is full of very negative miserable old men. All they do is bitch and moan.

    Go to the Axis Craps forum if you want to learn about and read thru the old posts for loads of info about the game of craps.

    Buy some books and learn the rules and the basic stuff.

    Good luck

    Though I have never been to the highlighted site above, it is a site for believers which will sell you items that might be of some help in your quest to control the dice.

    Things like: Instructions on shooting, keeping dice on-axis, wagering systems, networking with other believers.

    There are undoubtedly as many miserable old men on that forum as there are here. Well maybe one less, since I've never been there.

    Good luck Fuzzy. Always set a win and a loss limit and never bet on anything red or yellow.

    If you're looking for dice control, just step into a casino. They control the dice.

    If you're looking for make believe dice control, you are here! All the horse turds you can eat, a giant buffet of myths!

    Welcome, My best advice is to Read, and Read as much as you can about the game of craps. Some of the books out there say the same thing but each one does offer some nugget of advice. on

    Start out betting small amounts on simple bets such as the pass line with odds or place the 6 or 8.

    Then once you are comfortable you can expand your bets and bet more $$.

    You really need to have a bank roll of 2-3 hundred to have for each session.

    You won the first time you played? You're hooked.

    I also won the first time I played back in 1979. I've been trying to figure it out ever since.

    This site has a lot of good info. You'll spot the grumpy old men right away, so just read around them.

    Advice from a "Grumpy Old Man"........Start playing the game for fun and enjoyment, set aside some of your entertainment money for it!

    Once you have, become familiar with most of the nuances of the game....odds of various bets verse the casino payouts , a little about probabilities and expectations associated with random chance games, then you can start to explore the possibilities of "beating" the game.

    That will give you a better basis for evaluating all of the "schemes" out there......Dice control, biases in the dice, systems, and strategies, and all the other "wishful thinking"!

    Have fun, keep it simple for a while, and enjoy the game we all love!

    On IOS I like "AW craps", you can read the definition of all bets - they don't have "hop" and "put" bets though - then you can play, no in app purchases, not daily limits on chips

    If you want to learn the basics of the game and some do's and don'ts and money management advice, invest $15 in a brief, helpful book from Amazon: "No-Nonsense Craps," by Richard Orlyn. You'll have a great understanding of the game in simple, readable language.
    He has some pertinent advice about dice-control and avoiding bad bets.

    Oh, I could probably thrive on a One hundy dollar bankroll. But then, you have to play the Poopshooter way - They will tell you all about it!

    Dice Control? Its all in your head. You see what you want to see! ... See!!

    The grumpy old men here are not all that bad. Now, if their wives will let them out of their cages from time to time, then things could get interesting. Just saying...

    I agree. No one needs to pay a teacher to play smarter craps. A book, an Internet search and you tube videos provide all you need. Find a friend who knows the game. A 3 point Molly requires ZERO investment in schooling.

    A person with an ounce of common sense and brain matter should realize that no one who is successful as a DI would be dumb enough to teach it.
