If you ask a small grouping of craps players if they’d rather be on a table with a rhythmic roller or even a dice setter, they’ll almost inadvertently let you know a dice setter. This is because they’ve most likely played with numerous dice setters with some grade of success and secondly, because many people will think of rhythmic rollers as just a person who accumulates the dice and gives throws them throughout the table.
In most my years at a craps table, I have only seen two “true” rhythmic shooters. The rhythmic shooter can control the dice and cause an unbelievably consistent outcome by rolling in a rhythm. The first one I saw was average and another one simply astonishing.
I first played craps with her a few years ago in Tunica, Mississippi. She was playing on a table by herself early at The Horseshoe and I sat down at a nearby slot to keep a keen eye on her. I really could tell she was doing well because her red chips visited green and then started initially to go black.
The first thing I noticed was that she kept her left hand at an angle available constantly with her palm down on the felt DND Dice. She then appeared to pat the felt in some sort of rhythm, although not really. It had been quite strange however it worked. Bear in mind, most rhythmic rollers do not remain in this same position patting the felt, but she did.
I guess where she tokes the dealers, she gets them to “keep the dice moving” but I never heard her say anything like that at all, nevertheless the bets she placed for them were quite
noticeable, especially with a dealer bet $54 across. You better believe the stickman kept the dice moving, despite the stick change, they continued to maneuver the dice quickly in her direction. It will help a Rhythmic Roller.
She held them for another thirty minutes on that roll, seemed agitated and called it a night. The next morning, I asked the dealers on another shift if they’d seen her, I described what she appeared to be and they immediately said she went to Hollywood to visit friends. Feeling like a leech, but down a lot on my luck before I met her, I rushed right over.
The only thing I noticed was that little hand tapping out some sort of rhythmic beat while she hit number after number. When I asked her how she learned to play so well, she said, “Oh, I’m not that good really, it’s just my lucky hat “.
I have already been luckily enough to play with her perhaps five or six times now and I’ve come to in conclusion she is wearing my lucky hat too!
