    It looks like a lot of casinos are using smaller dice these days. I ordered 19mm casino quality dice on Amazon but can't seem to find the slightly smaller dice the casinos are using except for canceled out dice (which have wear on them). My question is where can I purchase brand new casino quality dice that are the smaller size?

    Try the Gift Shop at the Casino that is using... smaller dice. Usually $1 a pair.

    Would like to hear which Casino is using dice under .750 inch / 19mm. That is a new one. Maybe they are trying to save the environment and located in California. You never have too little of anything in California, it seems.

    I only ask since if you hang out near a table, odds are a die will fly off, scoop it up and high tail it out there quickly, need good knees to bend fast scoop and run, odds are no one will bother coming after you, and if they do, you thought it was a baseball in a stadium, and you got a souvenir ,
    go back an hour later scoop up another one, run out nearest exit. just don't go back into that casino for a while.

    7out, were there not some Reno casinos using smaller dice? I understand Wynn at one point was using larger dice, possibly .775. Don’t know if still applicable.

    *******
    The standard is .750". Color and pip designs may differ. My Tropicana Armada Hotel Casino die seems to be .775". My Caesars Atlantic City at .750". Older acetates vary all over the place. I must have Pai Gow to Craps Dice with four or five sizes. Tuning Stone New York... .750". Without a caliper handy, the difference is not noticed at the table, but you put a .750" next to a .775", that little difference is very obvious.

    The other option is the CUBE from the Bubble. There are a few sizes being used depending on the manufacturer. The smallest used were at Tampa, Florda Indian Casino.

    The largest pair I watched them bring them in with a wheel barrow for TDV to check out.

    If only it was that easy, lol. Unfortunately, it isn't (at least not when I'm shooting).

    and the 1.5 days before that I will be in new buffalo Michigan, at the 4 winds casino. not sure how much I will play, it all depends on how well I do on the drive out west.....if Im washed out, I might just sit near the pool, (at least until someone yells, quick, push him back in before he dies)

    PM me and/or post a reminder in the thread you started about your upcoming trip when your visit to Rivers is within a few days. Right now my schedule looks good but I'm planning on making a trip to NoVA at some point to help my parents out once they have finalized their plans.

    Lol, out of my control. Hopefully there will be several good rolls by some shooters while we're at the table.

    if it wasn't for my daughters wedding this month and my sons wedding later in year, Id probably just keep going in the car till I hit the pacific or get sick of driving. gotta watch cash going out right now. wont stop me from my usual small trips, but nothing big planned over the next 6-8 months.

    thankgod tunica looks like next sept when we have to go south for a party, we are finally going to just drive there and see what the las vegas of the south has to offer.
