Frank Scoblete interviewed an executive at the Nevada Gaming Commission which he reported about on his private web site. According to the executive, it is not illegal to try to control the dice because you are given the dice to shoot and you are attempting to win with your roll. How others bet is irrelevant. You just have to obey the casino rules about hitting the back wall and not sliding the dice.
Dice control is therefore legal. That does not mean that the casinos might want to change the rules but Scoblete also reported that the casinos in Vegas had a 26 percent increase in craps profits the last quarter. That must mean more people are playing the game now that they thnk it can be beaten.
The casinos would be foolish to institute changes when the money is rolling in.
I also found an interesting article from the Cigar Aficionado from 1993 where Scoblete discusses his belief in controlled shooting and talks about the "Arm," the best controlled shooter he ever saw. Her exploits were in the 1980s. Scoblete was the first to see the potential of this advantage play and wrote about it in his first articles and books. It's nice to see that others are now discovering what he has known for a long time. Craps can be beaten.
