The Aces Casino Blog: "When A Craps Table Is Set Up Outside, The Table REALLY Gets Hot!" Here's A Quick Peek At The Game Called "Street Dice!"

Everyone within shouting distance of Aces Casino Entertainment (also known as the top orange county casino party company on the west coast) knows that any time a new casino game comes around, we are ALL OVER IT.  Enter the team at The Aces Casino Blog to get the job done....

Thus is the case with another discovery over at Scott Roeben's "Vital Vegas" Blog, found in the archives back on May 15th, 2014.  (Ed. Note: "Amazon Prime," you're not.  Try to speed up the blog posts a bit, will you?)   Here's the link to the actual story, but here's the "Cliff's Notes...." 

The game is really a "shorthand" version of the game of Craps.  Here's how you play....

Players make their basic bet, then throw the dice. Go ahead and set them if you like. The “wall” you’re shooting against is 10 feet away, so controlling the dice would be beyond impossible.

If you roll a 2, 3 or 12 on the first roll, you lose your bet. A seven is a “push.” Only an 11 wins on the first roll (it pays even money).

If you roll something other than those numbers, the dealer marks the point, and you have three rolls to hit the number again. There’s a digital counter on the wall that counts down from three.

Here's how to play.  You're turning your head sideways, aren't you?

OK... Counting backward from three is, you know, a lot harder than counting to three.

Payouts on the numbers, if hit, vary based upon which roll it is, first, second or third. For the numbers 4 and 10, hitting the number on the first roll pays 5-to-1, second roll pays 4-to-1 and third roll pays 3-to-1. For 5 and 9, hitting the number on the first roll pays 4-to-1, second roll pays 3-to-1 and third roll pays 2-to-1. For 6 and 8 (the most commonly-rolled numbers, after seven), hitting the number on the first roll pays 3-to-1, second roll pays 2-to-1 and third roll pays even money.

If you roll a seven (the most commonly-rolled number) after the point has been established, you lose your bet.

So, hit your point (win), “seven out” (lose) or fail to hit the point in three rolls (lose), and you start all over again.

We had to rotate the picture, Scott.  Chiropractor Lawsuits.  Sorry.

That’s pretty much it. Easy game, easy payout table. To illustrate the simplicity of the game, Scott grabbed these photos as dealers (presumably dice dealers in the main casino) were being trained to run Street Dice, and their entire training took less than five minutes.

The straightforward nature of Street Dice at Downtown Grand should make it accessible to people intimidated by traditional craps, as well as those with far too much disposable income.

There’s one side bet in the game, just to keep things interesting.  (Ed. Note: Besides the fact that Scott's post is over 3 years old...)

The side bet in Street Craps is called a “Brick Bet” (again, no actual bricks, and this bet must be made before the start of a roll). It pays if an established point of 4, 6 , 8 or 10 hits as a pair, or “hard way,” within three rolls. On the “come out,” or set-the-point roll, 2, 3, 5, 9 and 12 lose, as those aren’t among the four numbers (4, 6, 8, 10) that can be made the hard way. A roll of 7 loses, too. An 11 on the set-point roll is a push. A winning “Brick Bet” pays 25-to-1.

There you have it, my friends.  We're looking into the possibility that this game still exists in Downtown Las Vegas... We'll let you know.  Our thanks again to Scott Roeben and his monster-blog, Vital Vegas.  Next up on the Aces Casino Blog, we discuss "The Brooklyn Forest."   That's Monday on the Blog.  Thanks to all that checked in with us today, from the top orange county casino night party company in SoCal - Aces Casino Entertainment!  Have a good weekend!
